Black Crusade (40k system game)
« on: March 10, 2012, 06:04:54 PM »
I hadn't planned to start anything new, but picked up the Hand of Corruption adventure at the con today, and reading that has me fired up to try for another game. I'd prefer to play, but if no one else is willing to GM, I'll run it instead.

Anyone else want to show the lackeys of the carrion god who is really in charge?

*waves to Hairy* 

Black Crusade?  Is that the game where we play apostles of chaos?

That's the one, yeah. Various Chaos space marines, mortal followers of chaos, psychers and dark mechanicus. Marines tend to be a bit better statwise, and better at what they do, but they're also more limited (and it's kinda hard to disguise a 7-8 foot tall armour plated killing machine in social occasions ;) ). The non marine characters tend to do better with the sneaky / social stuff.

Interesting.  I'll bite if you run.  Or some other cool, interesting person.

I had a lot of fun playing a Renegade with a group in RL, but I think I'd like to try a Chosen.

My previous game here, I went with a Night Lords chosen, trying more or less to build a sniper type character.

I would be so up for this game, going for an Alpha legion agent, or some kind of Psyker :)

Both are quite doable.

I've played a couple of dark heresy games, with probably the best storyteller in town.  (He's had a short story published in a 40K anthology.) 

I would still have to brush up before I made a character.

Would this be IRC, play by post, Skype, etc?

Given the ammount of timezones we tend to span in an average game on here, forum is the most likely.

I'm not averse to using a live medium, but finding a time that would suit everyone could be awkward.

Ah, understandable. :( 

I can't keep up with Play by posts, so I best pass.

Can't decide between Sorcerer or Chosen. :/ Sorcerer!
Let me know once your accepting actual characters and I'll get one in.

Oh, me me! been getting more into tabletops/turn-based recently, so I'd like to toss my hat in for consideration. I am exceedingly well versed in the setting, and I've read BC from cover to cover.

Psyker or Apostate.

Well, since no one else has offered to step up to GM, guess it's me then :)

How do you feel about playing through the already published stuff? I was thinking of starting with Broken Chains, since it gives a nice reason to have the players work together.

Next up, characters. From what I can see, having a variety of skills is going to be a good thing (1 Heretek, 1 psyker, 1 social type etc). I'm not saying there must be a balanced group, but it does seem to make things easier to work with. What do people want to play?

Sorcerer. I can start at once!

Also, how do you want to do character creation? Let players roll and hope people are legit? Let people pick prides and the like? Basic starting xp to spend?

Also, I'm fine with published adventures, since I dont read any of it anyway XD
