But scrubbing away the taste of those I honor by eating their flesh would be sacreligious!

I just noticed that even the Techpriest has a higher Fellowship than I do.

Now that's a helluva feat.  I'm sure the crew will just love having two creepy guys wandering around the ship at all hours.  But at least I will be performing routine maintenance rituals!  When I'm not scrutinizing people for weaknesses, anyway.

Remind me to never bring you to a funeral or anything.

Now, will it be more or less comforting that they at least always know you're there, while I could be along any wall or in any corner in 'plain sight' without a hint of my presence?  ;D

Hey, at Kroot wakes, the recieving/viewing line is also the buffet line. That's only for other Kroot though - if the corpse isn't nice and fresh (and preferably someone I killed), you're welcome to let it rot in a box or whatever you do with your wasted meat.

That likely depends a lot on if you've eaten someone recently, and if they know you did.

'Ole Thraxius will just have to up his game, is all!  Coerce some of the speakers into chanting ominously at his approach, flickering lights--maybe even a few skeletons popping out of closets!  Atmosphere is everything these days.

Well, consider me a walking circumstance bonus to your Intimidate checks, then. :D When I'm not scouting/sniping generally making life miserable for people who want to hurt you, at least.

Hey Ben, noticed Avan and Delila are both Ship-lorn. Maybe they both were on the same ship that got blown up and she followed him onto the new one.

Delila doesn't really care about Xenos as she missed out on much of the Emprah indoctrination. That's what happens when your navigator house figures the best way to teach your children is to dump them on a planet full of carnivorous murder and death.

Also she's got you all beat with 17 fellowship. Dumpstats ftw!

Looks like the crew is shaping up to be a bunch of ornery malcontents!  Excellent!

"My glorious, wise, and most esteemed Rogue Trader, have I ever told you how fleshy your skin looks in this light?  Now, as you know, we've been having to deal with some sorry louts down in engineering whose hands are scarcely worthy of holding a wrench, let alone laying a single finger upon any work of the Omnissiah.  It would be much more efficient if they didn't have all those unpleasant human needs slowing them down all the time, wouldn't you agree?  Thankfully, I have just the solution..."

You had your stats out of order, so I missed it. That's cheating. ;D

But yeah....a Fel 17 Navigator, a Fel 21 Techpriest, a Fel 20 Xeno Mercenary (with -20 on most tests, to boot, so I think I technically still have you beat on actual rolls for fail)....good thing we have the Seneschal and Rogue Trader to do the talking for us three social misfits.

With that kind of fellowship, they won't even need guns to get the screaming to begin. Seriously, one of the energy criticals melts your face off , and if you have 10 or lower fellowship no one notices.

Hey folks, just wanted to give a heads up that I'll be dropping out.  Sorry to Triangle if you already got started on my characters supposed ship, but I was thinking with want rather than sense.  Good luck to ya's, and sorry for the trouble again.

Ok, A sheet, thanks to my many helpers, has been posted!

Feel free to come in tell me what I did wrong everyone!

What's next?

oh, by the way.

My favorite cybernetic has got to be the Pain Ward. I've played other games and they've always just deadened the pain, you still had to worry because you wouldn't know how badly you *were* maimed. With the Pain Ward, if you suddenly start tasting the color purple, you know your in trouble and can act on it.

The OOC thread for the game is up!  http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=104036.new#new

Within an hour, I hope to have the XP system written up and a rough draft of the starting endeavors.

As for the first topic of conversation in the OOC thread, I'd like you guys to decide if you're going to be starting in Port Wander before leaving the Koronus expanse, at Ares planning your first mission, or in the Chiconahui Nebula completing your first endeavor.  I'm busy designing Tagan's escort ship, and my current idea is a ship from Ultramar commanded by a Servitor.  It'll be ever so blue and loyal.

Here are the picked classes:

-Rogue Trader (Someguy)  (Kirk, Mal Renolds, Adama)
-Void-Master (Tagan) (Sulu, Wash, Apollo)
-Sensechal (NotoriusBEN) (Spock, Inara, Tom Zarek)
-Explorator (Shihong) (Scotty, Kaylee, Chief Tyrol)
-Navigator (Creeper) (Wesley Crusher, Dr. Simon Tam, Gaius Baltar)
-Kroot Mercenary (TheGlyphstone)  (Worf, Jayne, Sharon "Boomer" Valerii)


And here are the unpicked classes:  (in order of priority)

-Astropath Transcendent (Lt. Uhura, River Tam, Laura Roslin)
-Missionary (McCoy, Rev. Book, Caprica Six)
-Arch-Militant (Chekov, Zoe, Starbuck)
-Kill Marine
-Battle Sister
-Death Cult Assassin
-Eldar Harlequin
-Ork Freebooter

quoting Triangle, this is the current make up of players and careers. I'm guessing while we would like certain classes, you can pick any career you want.

I'll go with the Astropath Transcendant.  I have both the main book and Into the Maw.  I understand that there it's base score of 25 plus 100 points to allocate to the nine characteristics as I choose.  I also get to roll on the Acquisition Table.  Anything else I need to know? I'll probably have a character up sometime tomorrow.

You don't roll on the table, it's more like this:

Our profit factor is 32. Assuming you only want personal gear, +30 makes your base number 62.
Whatever item you want with the highest rarity/craftsmanship penalty is subtracted from 62 as your first 'purchase'.
Each additional item with a rarity/quality mod equal to or less than that is another -5 from the remaining total.
You can't drop below 0, but everything you can 'afford' with the above rules is free starting gear.
