General Information

The Tau Character Guide provides Rogue Trader players with all the necessary information and rules to play Tau Explorers. Included in this supplement is a concise history of the Tau Empire, rules to play Tau Warriors of the Fire Caste, and an armoury from which to outfit characters with the advanced technology of the Tau.

The Tau Character Guide also offers three options for alternate career ranks, enabling Explorers to become a Pathfinder, a Drone Handler, or even a Battlesuit Pilot. Of course, the Tau Empire would be nothing without its hyper-advanced technology, and you'll find plenty of equipment and battlesuits in the Tau Armoury. Whether player strike from afar with a Kroot Hunting Rifle, blind his foes with Tau Photon Grenades, or experience the raw power of an XV8 Crisis Battlesuit, he'll find Tau technology is a great companion in the wild space of the Koronus Expanse.
