''Dark Heresy'' is a ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' [[TabletopRolePlayingGame pen and paper]] roleplaying game published by Fantasy Flight Games using a mechanical system similar to ''WarhammerFantasyRoleplay''. It has the players assume the role of Acolytes of the Holy Inquisition in the grim, dark future of the 41st millennium, rooting out heresy among the Imperium wherever it may be arise. Notable for having over five consecutive pages entirely filled with Critical Hit Charts.

*** In fact, its much more cost effective to take said Carapace armour, and give it the Powered modification, and only activate it when needed.

* ZombieApocalypse: Outbreaks of the walking dead are frightfully common in the Calixis Sector.

* ZombieApocalypse: Outbreaks of the walking dead are frightfully common in the Calixis Sector. There are a surprising number of varieties as well.

* OneRiotOneRanger: The Calixis Sector has a relatively large Inquisitorial presence, owing to ([[RightHandVersusLeftHand and sometimes the cause of]]) the many conspiracies and strange phenomena that take place there. By contrast, the nearby Askellon Sector has very little Inquisitorial interest, despite its reputation as a WretchedHive of damnation. Some think it is too far gone to save, and that [[BecauseDestinySaysSo it is prophesied to fall]], others believe [[ScrewDestiny it can be saved and redeemed]]. Consequently, any Inquisitorial cell there will find themselves isolated from institutional backup.

Plus the last time there ''was'' a major Inquisitorial presence there they ended up fighting amongst themselves and destroyed several planets. Consequently, any Inquisitorial cell there will find themselves isolated from institutional backup.

*** Woe is later explained to have nothing but plant life on it. All of which are omnivorous, and can also move about, albeit rather ''slowly''. These ultra deadly trees have been noted to not only shift around overnight like The Brothers Grimm trees, but are also smart enough to team up on larger trees. As far as the foliage is concerned, you are food.

As far as the foliage is concerned, you are food.same hive mind. Suffice to say, it deserves it's Death World classification.

** One of the "mental conditioning" backgrounds for Sanctioned Psykers in 1st edition gives mention of the character having a [[{{Literature/Dune}} scarred right hand and]] [[{{Film/Dune}} lingering distrust of bald women.]]

* HealItWithFire: Averted. You know the trope of lasers supposedly not causing bleeding because it cauterizes your wounds. It doesn't happen in this game. Getting badly hurt by almost any energy weapon means a living target will be geysering blood like a stuck pig. This applies to all the other 40K rpgs as well.

* HyperspaceLanes: The Grand Processional, a corridor of extremely stable and well-mapped warp space passing through Askellon, with a few "tributary" stable but shorter warp routes branching off of it. Given the relative ease with which it is traverse, all of Askellon's most important worlds lie along the Grand Processional, and most are directly supplied by worlds along their nearest tributaries. This makes Askellon an economic powerhouse of a sector... when [[AStormIsComing the Pandemonium]] is not raging across it.



* ThePerfectionist: The [[PlanetOfHats hat]] of Forge World Selvanus Binary, run by High Fabricator Dinuum. They practice an extremely orthodox interpretation of the Universal Laws, and their attention to detail in manufacturing is second to none. Everything is built to extremely exacting tolerances, and anything that deviates even the most minor amount from these tolerances is grounds to discard and entire thing and start again. As a result, Selvanian products have a reputation for extreme quality, but their rate of production is so necessarily slow that their overall level of output is well below expectation for a Forge World of its kind. The Quorum Primus tries to argue that Selvanus Binary needs to balance its quality of production with quantity of production, but Dinuum rebuts that any intentional compromise in quality would be blasphemous to the Ommnisiah, a point they cannot in good theology disagree with.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: The leaders of one of the Lathe Worlds decided that their task of ammunition production was beneath their status, so they petitioned the Mechanicus leadership to have it moved elsewhere to free up their factories and laboratories for a new great work. After this was done, it turned out they didn't actually have anything in mind so now the entire planet's assembly lines and labor force are standing idle while they try to think of something.

* SpyCatsuit: Appears as ''armor'' option referred to as an "armored bodyglove". The term "armored" is used rather loosely, as just about everything that has some armor penetration value will punch through it. But it is justified as a base layer of armor that can help provide protection to the limbs if they're lacking better armor pieces or if the top layer of armor should be damaged somehow. Or for those who prefer being stealthy, be it by not making a lot of noise or wearing highly visible armor or being able to conceal the fact they're wearing armor under regular attire.
