Dave T Hobbit Can't find the source, but I recall one of the RT designers saying Space Marines were a parody of Starship Troopers.


RT is packed with in-jokes and British humour, but the system isn't a parody of other systems; so, I'd say the background is somewhere between pastiche and homage, but the book isn't more parody than anything else overall.

He is on page 144 in Rick Priestley's Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader from 1987 for 1st Edition Rogue Trader. I linked the book to him.


1st Edition Rogue Trader was more of a parody than anything else.

Inquisitor Obiwan Sherlock Clousseau from the lore of 1st Edition Rogue Trader

What does everyone think of Inquisitor Obiwan Sherlock Clousseau from the lore of 1st Edition Rogue Trader? I think he shows that 1st Edition Rogue Trader was more of a parody than anything else. He appeared in the linked book below.
