About

No Rest For The Wicked

No Rest For The Wicked is a game of swashbuckling rogues and pioneers seeking adventure, fame and fortune at the edge of Imperial space.

The game and setting is based on the Rogue Trader game published by Fantasy Flight Games and the universe of Warhammer 40,000 (Games Workshop).

Being a game about rogue traders on the edge of known space, it's a game of exploration, trade, combat, politics, intrigue and ultimately: fame and fortune. Take up with a crew and explore unknown space. Watch out for dragons and exploit the untold bounties that undoubtedly await you - if you get there first.

Fight and/or bargain with the force of Chaos, mighty Ork hordes, ravenous Tyranid swarms, deadly Eldar raiders and more while you try and get as much as you can for yourself and your dynasty.

No Rest for the Wicked

These guys get to avoid all the financial responsibility and help make No Rest for the Wicked the best game possible. Without them, we'd be scuppered.

James Thompson is an experienced ref from Lorien Trust who's decided to help us run No Rest for the Wicked as well. Utter madman, but he's invaluable in the monster room.
