Introducing our next game: Astra Imperium!
It is my proud honor to introduce the newest ongoing game in the Library Roleplay family: Astra Imperium. Based on Fantasy Flight Game’s Rogue Trader roleplaying game, Astra Imperium is a blend of dark fantasy and science fiction. As part of Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40k universe, it is part of one of the oldest (and most successful) science fiction properties in wargaming.
In Astra Imperium, you are part of a group of explorers empowered by an ancient Warrant of Trade to seek out profit and plunder unexplored regions of space. Your ship will take you to new worlds and uncharted reaches of the void, where you will encounter deadly rivals, savage pirates, mysterious aliens, and possibly even the nightmarish inhabitants of the warp. You will acquire and spend great wealth, and either fame or infamy will attend your actions. You will discover ancient and forgotten mysteries and search out the unknown, perhaps to find lost human worlds, wield mighty artefacts of lost civilisations, witness never-before-seen celestial phenomena, or disturb ancient terrors long slumbering in the black depths. You must survive the dangers of the voids, for beyond the threat of vacuum and deadly radiation lurk things man was never meant to find. You must battle alien rivals to humanity’s dominance of the stars, who would see all human life snuffed out like a guttering candle if they could.
To be part of a Rogue Trader’s crew is to stand on the threshold of near-unlimited opportunity. Vast profits wait for you and your fellow explorers to find and claim. Fame and fortune reward the bold, but the unwary will find only death, their deeds soon forgotten.
The game master for Astra Imperium will be Geoff Barton, who also hosts our Pathfinder roleplaying game, Freehold of the Whisperwood. As part of the Teen Roleplaying program, it is open to all interested participants, ages 12 through 17. All materials will be provided; participants need only bring their imagination and ambition. A Player Pack for this game is available in the Player section.
So join us, Monday, February 13, at 6 pm at the Lewisville Public Library for the premier event of Astra Imperium. And remember, ambition knows no bounds.
