Black Library has released a new full cast audio drama, following the adventures of one of the Imperium’s less salubrious figures in Corsair: The Face of the Void.

In this radio style, audio drama by James Swallow, Rogue Trader Captain Athene Santiago and her crew are chasing pirates, when their prey mysteriously vanishes, only to reappear just as suddenly.

They venture aboard the stricken vessel, but what they find there is a little more than your average bounty.

“Faced with a mystery, Rogue Trader Santiago and her crew soon find themselves with something much darker when they board a derelict craft.”

Rogue Traders are an area of 40k lore ripe for adventure stories and intriguing plot and I think this format plays to their strengths.

Personally, I prefer this narration-free style of audio drama as I find it creates a far more cinematic experience.

Are you going to pick this up to listen to during your next painting session? Do you prefer radio-style audio dramas, or does a bit of narration add to the epic feel of things?
