General Information

The Emperor's Chosen is a supplement for Deathwatch (RPG series) dedicated to those rare Deathwatch Space Marines who ascend to the status of veteran.

This book lets players delve into the history of the Jericho Deathwatch and honor the heroic veteran Battle Brothers that have come before them. As part of a veteran Kill-team, Player Characters can assume a Heroic Legacy and combat their foes with tactical precision and martial excellence. Then, the included adventure invites Kill-teams to follow in the footsteps of their predecessors and complete the mission that laid them low!
