This here is a post to gauge interest of anyone being a part of a Dark Heresy game.
For those not familiar with the setting.:
"Dark Heresy is an RPG set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe. It is to 40k as Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay is to Warhammer Fantasy Battle, and indeed uses a very similar system.
Basically you're fucked like in WFRP, only instead of dying from blood poisoning caused by a dirty pitchfork you get to have your innards blown across the wall and then subsequently set on fire by a plasma gun (probably your own).
It has the best critical hit charts ever made. You don't even need the rest of the game (although it is all good, it's just a LOT). Just start a campaign, wing it, and whenever anyone gets a good hit, roll on the critical hit charts. Holy fucking hell, did boiling bone marrow just turn my femur into a frag grenade? Fuck.
All player characters are supposed to be human acolytes working for the Inquisition, although they may come from many different vocations. From the feral world warrior to the hive ganger, from the inducted Guardsman to the detached Sister of Battle. However, whilst the official adventures focus on inquisitorial investigations, the authors themselves have acknowledged the ease of relocating the game's focus to other aspects of the 41st millennium, such as an Imperial Guard platoon where all player characters are soldiers in one of the many warzones."

What I would like to know is if anyone would be interested in running/playing a game. If no one is interested in running a game, I will step up and try to run one unless no one is interested. I hope no one's anal about fluff because I run it loose and fast with the fluff, kinda....
Campaign Name: The Armour of Contempt (Name subject to change)
Setting: The Tiji Sector (Located Spinwards of the Callixis Sector, a bit to the left of a large splinter-fleet of Hive Fleet Behemoth...)
Taehan's population is concentrated on the two landmasses of the Corria continent, The southern continent is home to an Adeptus Mechanicus enclave. The Northern Continent, however, is home to a hive city ruled over by a xenophobic and possibly insane heretic who believes himself to be the will of the Emperor incarnate and rules over his subservient population with an iron fist. Because of his unpredictable nature and his proximity to an important Imperial manufacturing center, a debate is currently underway as to the best method to deal with this threat.
The Lord Inquisitor Magnamius Rex Her'Dehur has tasked his enclave of Inquisitors to deal with the rampant corruption of the Tiji Sector. One of the Lord Inquisitor's own, Inquisitor Lorn Fulquid, is responsible with purging Taehan of all heresy by any means necessary. The most obvious source of heresy comes from the Southern Continent, but as any Inquisitor worth his/her Inquisitorial Rosetta knows that heresy's roots always reach deeply.
The PCs are one of many Acolytes (whose rank and abilities we can discuss later) on a mission to root out the heresy on Taehan.
Now, we have a lot of options here and I've just pitched a campaign, but the key to a successful campaign is for input of the players. I'm not necessarily a good GM/DM/Storyteller but this is where you players come in. You come into this game and take from it what you will.
We can start at a low-level linear campaign to start us off with sky-rocketing experience gains until we get to rank 5-6 to which we begin to branch off into other things.
We can start at a mid-level semi-linear campaign to start off if you're FUCKING TIRED OF GOD DAMN STARTING AT RANK 1 AND NOT GOING AAANYWHERE....
