I have no doubts that Imperium Maledictum is the Warhammer 40,000 game that I've been waiting an awful long time for. It does a great job as a "spiritual successor" to Dark Heresy and improves on it in ways that doubles down on the investigative angle in a terrifyingly corrupt Imperium that makes one wonder how the entire thing is still somehow operational given that it's held together by duct tape and prayers to the God-Emperor of Mankind.

Mechanically, the game stands out in terms of supporting careful and clever investigation thanks to the Superiority mechanics which rewards finding things with actual advantage in an confrontation. Add the Faction and Influence bits and you get a game where you are constantly favor trading with a host of groups that have their own agendas.

Setting wise, the Macharian Sector is HUGE, and a masterwork of building a setting where every planet is enough to kick off a full campaign. The writing team clearly brought their best work to the table and I applaud them for the effort.

I would be remiss if I didn't mention how pretty the book is, in the bleak and dire Warhammer 40,000 sort of way. Cubicle 7 has never failed in terms of artwork for their Warhammer RPGs and Imperium Maledictum is one of the better ones. The layout is also easy to read and the tables are easy to reference. Having page references built into the margins helps a ton as well.

Imperium Maledictum is a very, VERY easy recommendation for anyone who enjoys Warhammer 40,000 from a more human angle. Sure you won't be a Space Marine here, nor will you be going into fistfights with the Orks, but if you're looking to do some good old Eisenhorn-style adventuring while putting few bolt pistol shells into the skulls of a heretic, you'll find it right here.

This is a portion of a larger Let's Study series of my blog that goes through the various sections of the book. If you're interested, you can find it here:
