Wrath and Glory

"The time has come once again to step into the grim darkness of the 41st millennium!

Roleplaying game company Ulisses North America have acquired the Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay licence and would like to announce their first product line, Wrath & Glory.

Ross Watson has been tapped to develop this new product line for Ulisses North America. Watson is best known for his role as lead developer for Rogue Trader and Deathwatch, as well as his numerous contributions to other Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay products. He is very experienced with the world and the game in all its incarnations.

Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Wrath & Glory is a roleplaying game set in the universe of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000. The setting is a dark, Gothic future where the galaxy-spanning Imperium of Man is beset by horrific threats and endless war. In Wrath & Glory, players join to tell stories of mystery, action, and terror amongst the bloodstained stars. You may take on the roles of characters fighting against the tide of corruption sweeping the galaxy, struggling to keep alive a glimmer of hope as others revel in the consuming flames.

Wrath & Glory launches in 2018 with the Wrath & Glory Core Rulebook. Inside are rules for character creation, task resolution, combat, and other activities your character may employ as they explore the grim darkness of the far future. In Wrath & Glory, your characters glimpse the grime on the cherub’s wings, the hint of regret in the Radical’s eyes, and confront their own worst fears in the Harlequin’s mask.

Ulisses North America will hold a seminar at Gen Con 2017, where Ross Watson will discuss further details about the game and the products that are in development. If you can’t make it to Indianapolis, there will be video of the seminar available afterwards.

In the meantime, if you are eager to revisit previous Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay products such as Rogue Trader, Dark Heresy, and Deathwatch, they will be available soon on DriveThruRPG!
