I've never played Warhammer 40K the table-top game. I have played the computer RTS and thought it was pretty damn good. After playing a few rounds, I happened to be in Barnes and Nobles, looking for a new book to spend my non-gaming, non-family time with (read at work). I spied a book called Eisenhorn by Dan Abnett and figured what the heck.

It's really a trilogy with supporting short stories combined into one binding. The novels are about an Imperial Inquisitor named Gregor Eisenhorn and his three biggest cases. They are done in a pretty interesting fashion of a detective novel mixed with high sci-fi. Pretty much tells of his (relatively) early career as a puritan to the beliefs of the Imperial Inquisition against humanities greatest foes: Mutant (Malleus), Alien (Xenos) and Heretic (Hereticus), to his (and all Inquisitor's) inevitible turn to working with that which they sought to protect mankind against.

After reading this book, I am eagerly awaiting my next visit to a bookstore and my hunt for more of Dan Abnett's and others' writings about the Warhammer 40K universe.

DEATHFORCE: There are certainly crazy things you can do with this game, you can generate a world that is 3 times the size of earth before it starts having errors, although I dont know how long it would take to generate a world that large anyways lol

TRASSIN: I'm guessing about 21 days? Assuming you take a break every 7th day or so.
