(Spoilers ahead): This Dark Heresy adventure is part one of a trilogy of adventures called the Apostasy Gambit, though it can easily be converted to be an adventure all on its own or as the lead into another conspiracy of the Game Master’s choice.

I felt that there were some good (even great) ideas here, but at times the adventure seems convoluted or making a big production about revelations that don’t seem that essential to the story being told. The general plot is that the Inquisition raids the residence of a corrupt Scintillan noble and find a Chaos artifact, as well as leads on where the artifact came from. The Inquisitor dispatches acolytes (the Player Characters) to follow-up on this lead, which means traveling to the world of Barsapine and conducting research at a famous Ecclesiarch church called the Gilded Cathedral, which holds an ancient relic of technology of unknown purpose protected by an impenetrable barrier. Research at the Gilded Cathedral leads the acolytes to another Ecclesiarchial holding, the Haematite Cathedral, which is in a remote location away from the city. The acolytes must go to the Haematite Cathedral to continue their investigation. This part of the adventure is basically a search through a haunted house with strange phenomena, dangers and ghosts to challenge the acolytes. Parts of this section reminded me of the 1981 Castle Amber Dungeons & Dragons adventure and I found that amusing. Eventually the acolytes learned how to breach a secret door and proceed deeper in the lower levels of the Cathedral and investigation of these levels will lead to the revelation that the Haematite Cathedral is actually the top part of an Imperator-class Titan that has been buried long ago (this is probably the COOLEST part of the adventure) and the story will proceed where the Titan will activate, rise from the ground and start walking to the Gilded Cathedral which it needs to get to so it can deactivate the impenetrable barrier and reveal the secret contained within, all the while a daemon prince is trying to stop it. The plot is simple and direct with a few great moments.

    Interesting plot ideas but muddled and can be a bit on rails. Mostly it feels rushed and not play tested.
