Aaaargh! Now I'll have to get this supplement!http://fantasyflightgames.com/edge_news.asp?eidn=5232
Hmmm! This is just wrong. The Sisters are such an important part of the Inquisition... How come they are not in the core rulebook? You can play all kinds of scribes and so on, but not a Sister? Weird.
Sisters are most strongly linked to the Ordo Hereticus. I sounds like they're doing one supplement for each Ordo, with the core book being relevent to everyone.
On another note, I looked at the weapons section and I saw the stats for the melta guns... Wow. These things are *dangerous*...
Yep. They're designed to crack open battle tanks after all.
BTW. I was surprised to learn that the bolters are something else than machine guns. How do they work again?
Think of them as a rapid fire miniature rocket launcher.
BTW 2. I was also surprised to learn that various planets in the Imperium have different forms of religion. I expected the Imperial Creed to be more uniform... Also, I was surprised to learn that the majority of the people in the Imperium doesn't know about Chaos and the daemons?
A lot of people in the Imperium aren't happy with their lot. If they knew Chaos existed, some could consider that a viable alternative, and hence turn to it.
To quote a couple of 40k lines I've come across, "Knowledge is Power, hide it well" and "Blessed is the mind too small for doubt."
As regards the Imperial Creed, as long as everyone worships the Emperor as the pinnacle, the rest is details, and allows missionaries to incorporate elements of native beliefs and turn them to the Imperial creed, making it easier for the natives worship to shift.
