Is the Wandering Conclave something that's from one of the Dark Heresy books? I'm looking through the core and I don't see it, but it's kind of late and I don't want to press ahead with the wrong info.

Nope, that's 100% me.

What will you sacrifice?

Arl will sacrifice everything in the name of the Emperor.

What do you desire?

To die unashamed, spending his life in the Emperor's name.

What do you hate?

Heretics. Specifically those who choose to turn away from the Emperor.

I’d also like you do include the following three pieces of information.

Three rumors you’ve heard about an Inquisitor(s) of the Wandering Conclave.
- Inquisitor Eisen is always seen stroking a small metal box and looking furtively to the void. They say the box is a switch that will summon a ship bearing an Eversor assassin, and the switch will trigger upon the Inquisitor's death.

- Inquisitor Thrax is an enemy of the Space Wolves.

- Inquisitor Thrax is at fault in his feud with the Space Wolves; he impugned their honour and called down a bombardment that saw many of the Angels of Death slain unnecessarily.

Two possible traits you’d like to see in the Inquisitor who chooses you as Proven Acolytes.
- The Inquisitor's honour is unassailable in its purity. None can find him wanting.

- The Inquisitor's faith is like a brand against the darkness; in his presence, the daemon cower.

One unsolved case or mystery that ties into the character’s history that they insist on pursuing.
- Although he would never bring it up and put it before doing the Emperor's work, it is a curiousity that Arl is blond haired, blue eyed, and fair while the people of his homeworld are nigh-uniformly bronze of skin, red haired, and green-eyed. And just how did he come to possess a charm that reads 'Arlington von Tankensteiner' in High Gothic, clearly something beyond the means of a Feral World to produce, and yet, an object he has owned his entire life?

Cold, you're missing a couple things:

Skill choice:

Drive Ground Vehicle or Swim

Talent Choice:

Basic Weapon Training (SP) or Basic Weapon Training (Primitive)

Also as a secondary suggestion, your guardsman, while strong and tough, has no capabilities in ANYTHING.  What this means is you're effectively going to be standing around bored for about 80% of game time, as DH isn't really a super combat-centric type of game. Plus, you're INCREDIBLY suggestible to any sort of influence. An average person could claim the sky is made of candy and you'd believe them.

I've never played DH before, though I do have the Players Handbook  :P  Would a Psyker be more usefull than a Guardsman? I wouldn't mind changing if it comes down to me just standing around kicking rocks till shootouts happen.

If you've never played before, a Psyker is probably one of the worst possible choices (very likely to die unless properly managed, and there's an entire chapter dedicated to explaining the TONS of options).

Good 'starting' characters are the Arbitrator (tough and good at investigating), the Scum (good at fast-talking, double-dealing, and general investigation), and the Guardsman (decent, but not really much use out of combat).

If you want a little bit of a challenge, an Adept (super smart investigator with lots of know-how) or a Tech-Priest (technologically minded individual that, at later levels, is basically immune to death).

The Cleric and Assassin are both quite handy, but they are somewhat gimmicky. The Assassin does a lot of damage but dies to a stiff breeze, and the Cleric is a combination of speaker and damage dealer - again tending towards being fragile.

I'm actually glossing over the eighth class, the Sister of Battle, because its basically the equivalent of a D&D Paladin.  Very tough and good at combat (think super guardsman), but bound by an incredibly strict moral code that doesn't mesh well with most player groups (who tend to end up doing unsavory things against this code).

Hope that helps!

well, never played, but not new to the setting, and I've gone over the Psyker class a lot. They seem to be very usefull, and I'd rather be able to do more than just combat, hehe.

What book has Sister's of Battle in it? I didn't realize they were playable.

That'd be the Inquisitor's Handbook (Although Blood of Martyr's has a very unpopular version as it starts with some of the best equipment in the game).

By and large, any class but the Guardsman (all combat) and the Adept (all investigation) can do a bit of everything.  A Psyker is the ultimate toolbox/broken character, but will probably explode and take half of the party with them if you're not incredibly careful.

Hrm. I'm not exactly a fan of 40k (indeed the wargame is awful and generally the setting is... a parody), but I am a fan of Sisters of Battle. Because of the implied-lesbianism bondage nuns aspect, of course.

Now you said you glossed over it and they're considered problematic because of their strict moral code. Does that specifically mean they wouldn't work for this game?

Because if I could play a Battle Sister (BoM version, the Handbook version is not an Adepta Sororitas, it's a Schola Progenum initiate who's in House Sororitas, looking at one day graduating to be a Sister), then I would totally be in all the way.

If not, then never mind (and good luck - DH games have seriously bad luck on Elliquiy!)

Are they really broken? I just thought it'd be fun to play a psyker, being a little odd. If I ration my use of powers, would it be alright to play one? Since I know how dangerous it is to be one (the whole summon a daemon or 'become' a daemon thing) and how about one of the other acolytes be sorta caretaker? telling me when it would be alright to use my powers? or something along those lines?

Psykers generally aren't broken in the sense of being too powerful, they're broken in the sense that sometimes the game can instantly end because of a bad Perils roll. Now, that's fairly rare, but it's happened enough times in games that, what with stories spreading over the Internet, everyone is aware the risk exists.

Also, they're one of the few career paths that gets straight-up upgrades in power as it advances (higher-level psychic powers, basically) and gains unique things (unlike most Talents, you pretty much can only have psychic powers by being a psyker). [Though that one isn't a problem with the Psyker, it's a problem with the Scum, Arbiter, Guardsman, Priest and Adept]

Well, I'm not running the game, I just know WAY too much about it.

Now you said you glossed over it and they're considered problematic because of their strict moral code. Does that specifically mean they wouldn't work for this game?

Because if I could play a Battle Sister (BoM version, the Handbook version is not an Adepta Sororitas, it's a Schola Progenum initiate who's in House Sororitas, looking at one day graduating to be a Sister), then I would totally be in all the way.

Basically, you can't have a party with a Sister of Battle and a Psyker in it.  The entire job of the SoB is the murder and castigation of Psykers.  On top of that, Sisters won't consort with any unsavory individuals (aliens, rogue psykers, or heretics) in the interest of nabbing a bigger prize.  Their whole ethos is against playing the waiting game.

Sisters work, from my experience, only when the person playing them plays a non-battle sister.  That means digging into the Ordo Hospitaller or the Ordo Famulous (or even the Ordo Dialogus or Pronatus).  Battle sisters are VERY annoying to work around outside of pure SoB themed games.

And I'd directly argue with you on the IH version of the Sororitas.  They are simply religiously indoctrinated fighting troops with fancy equipment.  IH represents this in the sense that the Ecclesiarchy may lend the Holy Ordos their personnel, but not the rare and religiously maintained suits of armor and blessed arms.  A starting Sororitas character isn't even a Sister yet (still a Novice).  Likewise, Faith is only demonstrated among the elite echelons, and never individually (always as a group).  Having single Sisters become Psyker-lite all over the place is simply strange, and no effort was made to balance the class with any other starting equivalent.

An alternative is a Sister of Silence, which has a phenomenal fan supplement floating out on the web. AWESOME class, and surprisingly well balanced for a fan publication.  Kind of the same theme overall as well.

http://www.4shared.com/office/oQa3dgqB/Dark_Heresy_-_Sisters_of_Silen.html


Psykers are broken if you go all out and simply pool everything into your powers.  Starting at about Psy Rating 3 (roughly six or seven sessions in) you start getting access to real powers, which can fundamentally alter the game in a bunch of crazy fashions.  If you're reasonable with power usage and general play style, they're actually a rather fun class - just prone to horrendous death either at their own hands or their foes. You also have to deal with the fact that most people consider you a necessary evil at best, if not outright want to murder you on sight or if you so much as twitch incorrectly (Sisters, for instance).

Well, I guess it comes down to: Can I play a Psyker? I promise I wont summon daemons or explode or anything!  O:)

I mainly wanna play one for their ability to sense psychic residue and some of the lore options they get early on. Also, I'm not into the whole meta game min maxing thing. I'll be more reasonable with my power usage and what I choose.

If it's too dangerous to play one, I'll be happy with Guardsman.   ;D

Again, I'm not running he game.  For what it's worth, I'd be happy to help you out with the character both IC and OOC.  The only important thing is noting whether or not you'll have FUN playing a Psyker.  I think yes, but it could be very disappointing if something goes wrong. At any event, it'll be much more interesting than running a Guardsman (the vanilla character).

Basically, you can't have a party with a Sister of Battle and a Psyker in it.

I guess that part is true, and to avoid conflict, even if I was told "Sure, you can be a Sister", MiaKage should be allowed to be a psyker instead. So I'll bow out and make a ruling unnecessary.

Battle sisters are VERY annoying to work around outside of pure SoB themed games.

There really does need to be a system just for playing Adepta Sororitas. Other than the one I created, I mean. An official one, as GW vomiting their logo on it is the only way anyone ever pays attention to stuff.

Quote
And I'd directly argue with you on the IH version of the Sororitas.

Bring it on. Arguing on the Internet is something I'm very experienced in. The fact is that part and parcel of being a Sister of Battle, even a Standard Sister, is:
*Faith (indeed, now they're actually better at it when there are fewer of them (taking casualties), though a VSS does also make them better at it
*The power armour and bolter (note that in the most recent "codex", there are Hospitalers and Dialogus, and they have Power Armour and a Bolt Pistol)

To be any less than this is to not actually be a Sister of Battle. Even when they go off on fetch quests for priests (see: Faith and Fire) they have their wargear.

Quote
A starting Sororitas character isn't even a Sister yet (still a Novice).

Which is rather my point: they're still just schoolgirls. Now sure, I'm working on a "Battle-and-Bondage High School" system, and converting it to "Schola Progenum" would be super easy, but that's just the thing: that's a game for the schoolgirls. DH has Arbiters (who also go to the Schola) playable out the door. It's weird that one playable character would have graduated from the exact same school that another playable, who entered the school in the same year and age, has not.

As for balance, there is the fact that they are denied a lot of skills, and in DH, most skills are "If you don't have it, you can't do it" (indeed, with halving a stat that is likely to be ~30 for untrained skills, it's realistic to say you can't successfully use any skill you don't have). In investigative games, that should really make up the difference, and if purely investigative, or with combat as an afterthought, the whole "Has power armour and a bolter" can really be seen as a flavour thing. The relevant stuff is that which influences the game itself.

And needless to say, Sisters of Silence are awesome (even before reading the link), but they too wouldn't be able to play with Psykers, given what they are.

So anyway, I'll bow out. Though if Aoife wants to continue arguing with me (and I use the term in the "Civil debate where people try to persuade each other of their points of view" way, as we've been doing, not "Insults and accusations of being a Nazi"), I do extend the invitation to argue via PM.

Again I honestly wish the game better luck than other DH games here - may it run for a long, fun campaign like the tabletop ones tend to do.

Jon Lee is a low down scion of the Lee Rogue Trader Dynasty, this has still afforded him some measure of wealth well beyond those of the average Imperial Citizen but nothing compared to the likes of wealth his distant cousin Rogue Trader Sun Lee spends on a regular basis. Jon's brothers and sisters have all been trained to work and aid the growth of the dynasty and it is sure that if it weren't for a twist of fate Jon would be an officer on one of the Dynasty's vessels or working as an administrator to one of it's many holdings whether they be in the Calixis Sector or Koronus Expanse. Jon was born on the Feast of the Emperor's Ascension while Bishop Juliet Constantine was traveling with the ship, she managed to convince his parents that he should be sent to work in the Ministorum when he grows up and so it was the decision was made albeit some what grudgingly by his parents. Because of many of his cousins first hand legal experiences in the Expanse in dealing with Xenos peacefully the idea of non violent interaction with Xenos is not lost on him however he has never met an alien and will ere on violence unless given reason not to.
Having learned fencing from a young age he is quite skilled with a blade. He regularly walks around with a hardened body glove beneath his robes in case of assasins, which for a man of such low standing in his family might be a little paranoid. On his thirtieth birthday his family sent him a bolt pistol which he displays proudly at his hip as a sure sign of his status and wealth however he doesn't even keep it loaded normally as his skill with the pistol is some what... lacking.

I'm still coming up with a few bits for the characters background and will add later.
I do have a question to the GM if he finds the character acceptable, could I pick Peer Rogue Trader as my bonus Peer instead of Peer Merchant etc, I was just thinking the name might carry weight... though they might start wondering then if Lucia and Jon are in secret negotiations between the Fel and Lee Dynasties!

Three rumors you’ve heard about an Inquisitor(s) of the Wandering Conclave.
-One of the Inquisitors is a member of something called The Order of the Sicarius (Misheard, the Inquisitor has some Ordo Sicarius Training)
-One of the Inquisitors is concerned as his/her most trusted acolyte has disappeared on a routine mission, possibly of their own design.
-One of the Ordo Xenos Inquisitors was a former member of the Landrian Militia in the ongoing Margin Crusade, originally from Land Under they are loath to use ranged weapons.

Two possible traits you’d like to see in the Inquisitor who chooses you as Proven Acolytes.
- It'd be interesting if the Inquisitor was a member of the Xeno Hibris faction, leading to adventures working along side some Xenos. Disciple of the Dark gods has these guys, they'll work with Xenos and feel it is the only way for man kind to survive, of course they'll always steal xeno tech too if they want to reverse engineer it.
- Allows a good degree of autonomy and independence during missions but will raise any questionable choices after the mission, I don't want to have to handle

One unsolved case or mystery that ties into the character’s history that they insist on pursuing.
- Chartist Captain Genevieve Phillips, an old friend of the Lee Dynasty went missing some time ago on a routine journey between Scintilla and the Lathes. She and her ship have been missing for four years, perhaps it was the whims of the warp or perhaps something foul is at work.

Background packages need to have a conducive connection between the two, and can only be taken by spending starting experience, but are otherwise entirely acceptable. In this specific instance, I'm actually wasting xp on Hive gang Member (200 xp for Concealment).

Most of them either don't logically stack, or you won't have enough initial experience for the purchase (the limitation).


I can actually answer your question directly Ayb.  You select Peer Nobility and Peer - whatever your house is involved with.  As you're from a Rogue Trader family, naturally you'd have Peer (Rogue Trader).  The available selections are meant to serve as examples.

On a further note, welcome!  Hopefully you'll not be too incensed at our resident Psyker Mia ^^

Bah I'm well used to astropaths, as long as she can send interstellar messages and is soul bound to the Emperor there'll be no problems... you are an over sized psychic radio right? Just kidding, he wont burn her at the stake, I don't think he'll have ever met a Sanctioned Psyker that wasn't an astropath and without FL Psykers he'll just assume she can and be a little confused if she can't. He's going to be fairly accepting of her as the Inquisition knows what it's doing as far as he is concerned however he wont react well if she tries to heal him with the warp born energies.
