*Sweat drop* 

I thought that was what we were doing too, WArgtass.  Does something contradict it?

Actually, go back and read Shadowfox89's original post...

The intention does seem to be for us all to be thrown together in a motley composite unit from various places.

My reading (YMMV) of the random regiment question is whether our characters come from one of the canon/pre-printed regiments or one that Shadowfox generates randomly.

Am I wrong? I may be wrong. That happens betimes. o_O

Nah that sounds about right, ethier random, give Shadow an idea and he makes it for us but in the end he'll be making the whole new regiment we'd find ourselves in.

That was my understanding also.

 Yes, that is correct.

I saw something contradicting it, but now I can't find it, so I guess I was just imagining stuff.  :P

Obviously need more coffee.

Huzzah! Enlightenment achieved.

With that in mind... I think I would prefer to play Pixie, the Operator (though I could play her as a Medic if you'd prefer or if the group is in need of one). Either way, I plan to build her as more of a 'face'/social expert than a combat oriented char.

And I think the 33rd Valerian Hussars for her regiment, however the dice rolls play out. You know, when we get to that stage.

I AM RIGHT!

Someone is writing this down right? Anyone...?

Online Wargtass

How will comrades be implemented, if at all?

Offline Barenmarder

I certainly hope someone's writing it down. Or that somewhere, perhaps on some computer somewhere, there's some record of this. :P

Sorry. I kid. But yeah, I will be happy to play recorder of important facts.

Let's see... hmm... Emperor Protects... Only in Death does Duty End... If A Job's Worth Doing, It Is Worth Dying For...

This could take a while. *grin*

"Remember to affix bayonets when charged by tanks"

Hmm... sounds silly but it must be true.

After all, "Blessed is the mind too small for doubt."

"Remember to affix bayonets when charged by tanks"

You dare give the tanks the initiative to charge? The commissar disapproves... *blam* Everyone knows the bayonets get affixed when you charge the tanks. :p

Also, just in case anyone is worried...I'm really not planning on making the commissar very hardline/hardball. I won't be executing people left and right, I promise. I'm just waiting to see if we get a Sergeant, or if anyone else wants the leadership role. I know I'll try to cover some melee aspects for the squad, in the event some enemies need to get stabbed/dismembered, just not sure if I'll need to plan for getting many leadership based skills.

Sure...after you say you are being a Commissar, ask if someone wants to be the Sergeant.

Smoootthhhh  :P

Offline Barenmarder

Nothing so stiffens the spine of an honest trooper as hearing that distinctive "crack" of a Bolt Pistol somewhere down the line. Reminds them that someone else is having a worse day than they are.

I for one welcome our chainsword-wielding oppressor. :P

Offline Ace Flyer

Hey, it was just a friendly question. I'm certainly not looking for who gets to get shot first if things go wrong. I promise. ^_^;;

And yes, welcome the chainsword-weilding oppressor. Unless we get a nice regiment like the Scintillian Fusiliers, in which case it will be a power sword. I'd really love to have a power sword...But, then again, who doesn't? :p

Offline Barenmarder

Someone who used Strength and Weapons Skill as dump stats?

Someone who would much prefer to leave all that messy work to the Adeptus Astartes and just get on with learning to use this Demolisher Cannon or Plasma Destroyer?

Someone who invested in hearing protection and is looking forward to seeing if a Heavy Bolter really will dispense a Righteous Orgy of Kinetic Vengeance, as the Departmento Munitorum Pamphlet #447A-HB states it will?

*grin*

On the other hand I am bang alongside friendly people having power swords. Or even commissars.

Hey...I would love to be a Valkyrie pilot, that's a concept I always wanted to try.

Not sure how well that would fit with Fox's plans though...

 Well, before we continue...
 
 Those interested in having a random regiment please roll me 4d10 and 8d100. I need the individual rolls for each.

Offline Ace Flyer

Just curious, this random regiment thing...Is this for our individual characters, to determine what regiment they were from (and so we know the characteristic bonuses and etc), or the regiment as a whole we're being lumped in? I just want to double check on that, as I know the others were talking about it before.

Offline Barenmarder

As Rikki Tikki Tavi once said: run and find out!

Result of the throw of dice "4d10 : 8d100" :

Cleaned up because I was lazy and just had it roll them all at once.

 The regiment you're being lumped into. You get the bonuses of your original regiment as that represents your training thus-far.

Offline Barenmarder

*blink* I thought we were randomly determining our original regiment with those dice rolls... and then once generated our characters would be thrown together into a composite unit.

O_o

So confuddled and bemused.

Gotcha. Hmm...Just gotta choose now. Am I from my good ol' Steel Legion (love those guys, much to my wallet's dismay when it comes to fielding an army on the tabletop), or somewhere new...Oh, choices, choices...
