Dark Heresy
« on: February 15, 2014, 08:10:26 AM »
"What is your duty? To look the universe in the face and then spit in it's eye. To die with a curse on your lips and your finger on the trigger. To know you are doomed, but try anyway."
                                     - Inquisitor Soldevan, Ordo Hereticus


Evening ladies and gents, I've been mulling over some ideas for a DH game and am looking to see who's interested.

The basic premise is that the characters would be deployed to locate and eliminate an inquisitorial agent who has gone rogue. It would be set within a hive city and the players would know that the target is in there somewhere but little else about her. All the local resources (Arbites, local law enforcment, etc) would be at your disposal but I'll leave it to the players to decide if they want to storm in waving badges or try and take it a little more subtly. I'm not anticipating a ton of combat or sexytimes related stuff, but this is Dark Heresy and E, people will be shot at and if someone decides that they think the target is hiding in a strip club no one is going to stop you looking there.

Ideally I'd like a group of 4-6 players capable of posting at least once or twice a week as needed to keep the game moving at a decent pace and post at least a couple of decent paragraphs at a time (I understand sometimes you need to make a post where literally all you do is nod and agree with someone or shoot at the same target again but outside of that longer, more descriptive posts are appreciated).



One last thing, I was thinking I would limit characters and equipment to say rank 3 Acolytes from the core book only but if people are interested the Beta of 2.0 is floating around the net and I'd be up for trying that.

Dark Heresy is the game I always wanted a good group for (admittedly, I always hoped for a tabletop group) that I never got around to enjoy. If it can happen on the internet, I'll take it. Posting once or twice a week suits me too. Usually I'd lean towards Guardsman or Assassin, but I just might lean towards Psyker.

Oh, wow! 

This sounds perfect for me, form pace to content.  I'd love to play.  (Perhaps a psycher?  Or assassin?)

Awesome.
A balanced group would be nice instead of ending up with 3 assassins and a psyker or something so I'm inclined to say try and try and keep it to 1 per class (other than guardsman and arbites, nothing wrong with doubling up on them) and first come first serve. I'm flexible though so for now we'll just see what happens.

Well if its 1 per class for now I do believe I'll call dibs on that Psyker. Try something new.

That's fine, I'll probably actually just go with a Guardsman. 



Though, JohnTheGreat, assuming I am accepted and you aren't running the beta version, would you be opposed to me making a character randomly?  (random world, random career, etc.  Using the dice bot here)

If it's first come first serve, Primarch, then I already did. 

Hoping to hear back from John soon.  :)

Awesome idea.

A few friends and I have recently started playing this and I'll say it's one of the most enjoyable and random games we've done so far.

Jaded if you want to random up I would suggest this: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/dhroller.html
It's about 6 clicks and it gives you a fully finished character. I think you can also then link me the sheet which would be appreciated. And if anyone else ants to use it it doesn't have to be random, it'll just roll stats for you.

Muse I think Primarch won that by being the first to actually call it rather than mention it as a maybe.

So it looks like we have a decent amount of interest.

Pics are good but a decent description of your character is needed as well. Stats go here too, as does equipment and skills. I'm going to say you'll be rank 2 from the start, so you'll have 500 xp to play with from the get go.

Lets try and keep it in this thread for the moment and once we've got characters sorted we'll move to that thread.

Consider me keen.

What classes are still available?

How would the posting rotation work?

Psyker is taken and I think assassin too, not sure if techy was as well.
The rest should all be open or ones that we can double up on.

Are you allowed to take the Adepta Sororitas from the little expansion or just sticking to the main?

If so, dibs! :)

Thinking an assassin with the background of Ordo Famulous.  Bit of a high class woman.

I like this generator too.

Has all the xp upgrades as well.

P.S also has Sororitas

Ok that's more players than I was expecting..
Lets remove the class restrictions for everything but Psyker (I've had problems with them in the past).

Sororitas I'll tentatively allow but reseve the right to restict starting equipment, I'll have to look into it when I get home.

  John, may I use an origin from the Inquisitors handbook? 

  I had a good idea for an inquitor from Dusk?
