It is the 41st milenium. To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. The Imperium of Mankind is the single most powerful entity amongst the stars of the galaxy, yet it is a rotting, corupt, and failing Empire, lead by a man who has not walked upon his own two legs for 10 millenia. Every day, millions die under the rule of that one man, known only as the Emperor. The Imperium, shattered and broken as it's leader, still reeling from a massive civil war 10 thousand years ago, is held together one day at a time by her mighty armies, her inter planeteary police force, and most of all, by His Immortal Emperor's Most Holy Inquisition.

The Inquisition is a massive organisation of the most intelligent and powerful men the Imperium has to offer. They are split into three major factions: The Ordo Hereticus, who fight the taint within, hunting for cults, rogue psykers, and heretics; The Ordo Xenos, who fight the threat without, protecting the people of the Imperium from the threat of alien races; and The Ordo Malleus, who fight the power beyond, hunting the Daemon and his works wherever they may appear.

It is in this most noble order that you find yourself, mere Initiates, apprenticed to a great Ordo Malleus Inquisitor, hunting anything from Chaos cults, to Warp artefacts, through to full Daemons. Your training begins in the year 941.M41, (40941, by our current calendar), on a Strike Cruiser, one of the Black Ships of the Inquisition. You have been recruited from across a myriad of worlds, and brought here by your new master for training in the ways of the Inquisition. If you prove yourself worthy, or more, if you survive, you may be promoted before long to the rank of Acolyte, then on to Interrogator, before finally ascending to the rank of Inquisitor, where you will have the might of the entire Imperium at your fingertips.

The chances of any of you living that long are slim, but be cautious, listen to your master, and have faith in the Emperor, and maybe fate will smile upon you and your group. Good luck, and may the Emperor guide your souls.

This sounds to be verrrry cool, a-parsons.
