=I= see you…
After being singled out and inducted into the service of the Inquisition, things have not quite gone as you had imagined them. Removed from your past life, you have been tested and measured, questioned and interrogated. But aside from a few lectures given in darkened chambers that left you sick to your stomach and a seemingly endless stream of codes and ciphers given you to memorize and destroy, you have been left largely to your own devices. Lodging under a false name on your home planet, you have bided your time for weeks waiting for the call from your masters, and perhaps, their verdict.
At last that call has come and a blankeyed courier has delivered to you a note featuring the cipher of the Holy Ordos. The message within was simple and perfunctory, containing a time, a date and a location and instruct you to come prepared for space transport.
Launched into orbit, then the horror of deep space, you see few other passengers upon your ship and receive no other instructions for what seems like infinity. Instructions finally come, however, as a data slate message instructs to make haste to the Naval officer’s meeting room and expect company, It is signed off with a single epithet…

I’d like to give GMing a Dark Heresy PbP game a shot and I’m going to hedge my bets and say that some people would be interested here. I plan on recruiting for this game until January 23rd, at which point I’ll take a look at what people are offering and try to pick out a reasonable group. If you are interested, please post a completed character sheet, along with background and picture of your character in this thread.
And may the Emperor Protect.Sample Character Sheet:
