The setting is the Koronus Reach, a dangerous and uncharted region on the Empire’s outer borders.
Of course, you will also meet various companions on your journey in Warhammer 40,000: Rogue Trader. These include “a mighty Space Marine, a restless Eldar Ranger, or even a brave member of the Adepta Sororitas armed with boltguns and prayers.”
