Deathwatch - Watch Fortress Erioch
« on: May 16, 2018, 07:39:42 PM »
Play me


To be Unclean
That is the Mark of the Xenos
To be Impure
That is the Mark of the Xenos
To be Abhorred
That is the Mark of the Xenos
To be Reviled
That is the Mark of the Xenos
To be Hunted
That is the Mark of the Xenos
To be Purged
That is the fate of the Xenos
To be Cleansed
For that is the fate of all Xenos

Watch Fortress Erioch is a vast space bastion that lies in the outer reaches of the Erioch System in the untamed void between the Canis and Acheros Salients of the Jericho Reach. It is situated in a stellar dead zone populated by only a handful of failing, ancient stars -- of which Erioch itself is one. A brutal mass of armoured basilica, domes, and spires, the fortress bristles with enough armament to rival a sizable battlegroup of Imperial warships, largely concealing the fact that underneath the Imperial ceramite and firepower, it is built on a ruined alien artefact that was old when Terra's star was first forming.

Within it is a vast maze of echoing, dust-carpeted corridors that wander past silent chapels and armoured vaults sealed with adamantine doors. Beneath war-tattered banners of glories past, the Battle-Brothers of the Deathwatch in residence move between their cells, practice ranges, armouries and briefing theatres like spectres in a dead city, their numbers swallowed by the vast and labyrinthine nature of the fortress.

Will you answer the call of the Deathwatch, and bring glory to your Chapter?

"I honour the accords and the will of the Emperor. I honour my Primarch and the Chapter Master whose will we obey. I honour the Deathwatch and the sacred duty to which I am now pledged."
—The XXVI Litany, the Seventh Oath of Secondment


I've been playing Deathwatch with a tabletop group for some time now, and it's got me in the mood to run a game here. Anyone else interested in purging some Xenos, or facing the other myriad of threats which beset the Imperium?

Cool. Anything firmly in mind for a character? Chapter or role?

I prefer to play melee focused characters, and I like the idea of being from the Space Wolves :3

Considering I made my Scion character a melee specialist, perhaps?

*sees Space Wolf interest* BROTHER!!!

Hmm funnily enough I might be going Blood Angel to be honest. They have the coolest psy powers and advanced path wise (plus if I get critically injured I can still be a psyker while also being a dreadnought) xD

...Them, the wolves or a black shield possibly. xD

For how long will you be taking applicants? I'd love to get in on this, but I won't have time to drum up a character until next week.

Hairy, I am mostly a novice at 40k.  I've played the game Space Marine, but I can't tell you about Chapters and such.  I'm pretty sure I have the book somewhere.

What I can tell you is that games you run rock, and playing a space marine sounds like a lot of fun.

And I'll probably need help making a character.

I'd be happy to answer questions, as I've played before and have the rulebooks ^^

I was thinking the same actually. I love me my blood angels librarians, especially since they can shoot lances of psychic blood energy at fools. xD

Might be playing a knight of blood blackshield. xD

I'd like to jump in too if you'll have me. I need to go out soon, though I'll check through my books after and figure what kind of role or concept I'll go for.

Chapter-wise, I'm hovering over Dark Angels atm, just as I dig their lore so much. I may change my mind later though when I know what my guy will be doing for the team. :)

While two Librarians might be funny to see hurling smites and stuff around, I think I might go with something else in that case, either Assault or Tactical.  Not sure which, though.

Games always take a bit of time to get set up and running. Getting a character together next week should be grand.

Dunno.... tactical? A shotgun seems like it would be fun. But maybe a devastator

One question, is the stuff in the Jericho Reach pdf available? I'm not sure if I'll even use any of the player stuff for it, though I thought I'd ask so I'm not the one dude not using a book when others may do so. ^^

I ask more as that stuff is like locale dependant, so it's GM caveat on availability. Again, I may not even use anything from it, just wondering is all.

I'll actually expand that to ask what books can be used and what things can't for character creation. ^^'
