* CrapsackWorld: In addition to the general crapsackiness of the [=40k=] universe as a whole, you have the [[UrbanSegregation feudal hell]] that is Sepheris Secundus, the "Scrivener's System" of Prol (where a civil war is brewing because [[ObstructiveBureaucrat they're running out of places to store all the paperwork]]), and Klybo, where various settlement attempts have been so spectacularly unsuccessful that the planet's name has become the Calixian equivalent of "SNAFU."
** Read the Prol example again. Every word is LITERAL.

** Read
"SNAFU"; and Hive Volg, a city-sized combination of sewage treatment plant, acidic swamp, and PollutedWasteland filled with mutated monsters and murderous convicts-- a place some consider to be the Prol example again. Every word ''worst'' place in the Calixis Sector, which is LITERAL.saying something.



* DeathWorld: The Calixis Sector has its fair share. Of particular note is the planet [[StealthPun Phyrr]], where [[EverythingTryingToKillYou literally every living organism and organic by-product on the planet is profoundly toxic to humans]].
** As well as Woe, which is listed in the core rule book as ''"A death world. Extremely hazardous."'' Sounds nice, doesn't it?.
*** Woe is later explained to be something quite terrifying and unique, even for Dark Heresy. The entire planet is a GeniusLoci where every animal, plant, insect, bird and fish all exist on the same hive mind. Suffice to say, it deserves its Death World classification.

* RiddleForTheAges: There are quite a few of these, since lots of mysteries are set up as plot hooks to be resolved however the GM desires. The biggest one is the true nature of the Tyrant Star.

* KnightTemplar: The main villains of the ''Apostasy Gambit'' trilogy, Maledictor's Hand-- i.e., the people who believe the Calixis sector is utterly corrupt and should be cleansed... and use the ''power of [[TheChessmaster Tzeentch]] [[GodOfEvil himself]]'' to bring this about. At least the Inquisitors have a relatively high smart-to-dumbass ratio. The Maledictor's Hand doesn't even have that excuse.

* ComicallyIneptHealing: Your own character can be this, if you attempt a Medicae check and roll poorly. You'll suffer an additional penalty for working on [[BizarreAlienBiology Xenos]], unless they are Orks. [[SubvertedTrope With Orks you get a bonus]], because they are so tough you can't possibly make the injury worse.... Orks, expecting a mad-doc, will only seek medical treatment when they have no other choice.
