Cubicle 7 were delighted to support Free RPG Day recently and Rain of Mercy – our entertaining introduction to the grim darkness of the 41st Millennium and Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Wrath & Glory was very well received! Today, we are excited to share this PDF with you all for free!
The booklet is a short primer on the world of Warhammer 40,000, the glorious Imperium and its many foes, and the forsaken Gilead System trapped by the Great Rift. It also includes an action-packed adventure using simplified game rules so you can start playing immediately.
Rain of Mercy writer TS Luikart discusses the Rain of Mercy below:
I have many gaming books on my shelves, but very few that’ve taken as much punishment over long years of heavy use as my original copy of Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. I bought it the day it came out in the United States, and though it survived many a 40K engagement, I broke its spine constantly lying it flat while working on Dark Heresy, the first (official) 40K RPG. The Emperor does look out for his true servants though — I actually won a brand-new copy in a raffle from Forge World when they reprinted it a couple of years ago.
While I’ve gotten a lot of use out of many portions of the original Warhammer 40,000 — the section I’ve read (and reread) the most is the postscript author’s note from Rick Priestley on the technology of the Imperium. I’ve found more useful inspiration in those back five pages than I’ve found in whole other books. An idea that came to me from reading them was, in fact, the spark that led to Rain of Mercy, Cubicle 7’s introductory Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay: Wrath & Glory adventure released originally as part of Free RPG Day.
Rain of Mercy is an entertaining introduction to the grim darkness of the 41st Millennium and the Gilead System — the setting for Wrath & Glory. It includes an action-packed adventure set on the overly populated Shrine World of Enoch. Rain of Mercy uses a simplified version of the Wrath & Glory ruleset meant to quickly introduce new players to the game’s grim themes. Folks that have already purchased Wrath & Glory will doubtless still get some intriguing and esoteric lore out of Rain of Mercy!
 My copy of Deities & Demigods is held together with duct tape. Cthulhu and Melnibonéan Mythos for the win!
 The Forge World adepts were very amused when they found out who I was and sent me a nice note.
 The adventure includes four Player Characters, each of which has their own unique assets.
