Dark Heresy is a sci-fi RPG with some fantasy elements set in the grim darkness of the Milky Way galaxy in the 41st Millennium. Players control Inquisitorial Acolytes for the Imperium of Man hunting heretical Chaos worshipers, vile aliens, and grotesque Daemons, minions of the Chaos Gods inhabiting an alternate dimension known as "the Warp". These agents are sent to root out heresy, subterfuge, and treason against the God-Emperor's domain wherever it may hide.
