[WH40K] Imperium Maledictum in d100 glory

GenCon 2022 big reveal....

Cubicle 7 is excited to announce a new Warhammer 40,000 roleplaying game! Imperium Maledictum is the spiritual successor to the beloved series of roleplaying games started by Black Industries over ten years ago. Imperium Maledictum is a d100 based system for roleplaying in the grim darkness of the 41st millennium, and builds on previous Warhammer 40,000 d100 roleplaying games, as well as Cubicle 7’s own award-winning Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4th Edition.

Players take on the roles of citizens of the Imperium in service to a powerful patron, with games focused on investigation and intrigue. The Imperium is a deadly place, and the players must tread carefully if they hope to survive. Your service to your patron allows you to move through Imperial society where others can’t. The Influence you and your patron have with the many factions of the Imperium will determine how your investigations proceed, where you can go, and what resources you have access.


Imperium Maledictum takes place in the Macharian Sector, named for Lord Solar Macharius, and will allow players and GMs to explore the sector as never before.

The Imperium Maledictum core rulebook gives players and GMs everything they need to begin playing, including a guide to the Macharian Sector, patrons to serve, and enemies to face. Future books will focus on specific factions, allowing players to take on the roles of agents in service to a powerful Inquisitor, or perhaps as dedicated servants of the Ecclesiarchy.
Qué? I can't keep up @negromaestro, please explain.
Basically, Cubicle7 noticed that the old guard still loved Dark Heresy despite its broken d100 rules at high levels. Yes, my crew is part of that demographic; we ran campaigns for both Dark Heresy and Rogue Trader in that d100 system for years.

When the new Warhammer 40K from Ulisses called Wrath and Glory, was published, we tried it but never ran any long campaigns. T

Cubicle7 has probably noticed Wrath and Glory is not pulling in the crowds. It was built with d6 dice pools to attract the miniatures wargames crowd. Sadly, it seems not too many of those want to role play. There is still a small cult following for Wrath and Glory, regardless.

However, the new d100 Imperium Maledictum is more an homage to Dark Heresy. And to keep fans of the original happy with their vast collections of published books, the new lore is for a new the Macharian Sector of the galaxy. The first edition was in the Calixis Sector, and a short lived second edition was in the Askellon Sector. So you can have all three for lots of diverse lore. I already have the classics and will probably invest heavily in this new edition too.

And with this new d100 WH40K, I end Wrath and Glory purchases. Never got a campaign off the ground, still stuck at one-shots.
