Of course, as the one blessed with the Warrant of Trade, the Rogue Trader is the captain of their own vessel, and their word is law. It is up to you where the ship goes, who of the panoply of potential companions is let aboard, and how you interact with your crew. Perhaps you lead as a suave pirate captain, letting your sweet words do the work for you. Or shall you crusade in His glory, crushing all before you and leading with an iron fish and unshakeable will? Or perhaps you’ll find a new calling. A path of promises, darkness, and the service of a new lord…
“A man can be convinced to do anything, no matter how abhorrent, with the right motivation.”Lord Erebus, First Chaplain of the Word Bearers.

About Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader
Players will take on the role of a Rogue Trader, a scion of an ancient dynasty of daring privateers who reign over their own trade protectorate and explore the fringes of Imperial space with the blessing of the Emperor Himself. By virtue of their Warrant of Trade, the Rogue Trader is endowed with privileges and power beyond imagination as well as the task of expanding the borders of the Imperium. At their disposal is a gargantuan voidship of immense strength and innumerable personnel ready to follow their leader without question. Show your subjects mercy or disdain, stay faithful to the Emperor, or consort with the enemies of Humanity — the Rogue Trader’s every decision sends ripples across entire star systems, changing the in-game world and those who inhabit it.
Events will unfold in the Koronus Expanse, a dangerous and unexplored region on the farthest frontiers of the Imperium. Many explorers have fallen victim to this dangerous place, never to return.
Remarkable and sophisticated companions are one of the pillars of the cRPG genre, and Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader is no exception. A mighty Space Marine, a mercurial Aeldari Ranger, or even a courageous Sister of Battle armed with a bolter and ardent prayers are just a few of the many characters that will join the Rogue Trader during their adventures.
