Is that a rule for this specific game I'm missing?

Because on page 304 of the Core Black Crusade book, where it lists purchasing Infamy as an Advance for 500 experience (so long as your Infamy is below 40) is..?
Ah. Huh. My mistake, ever seen anyone actually do that before. Carry on then. nothing to see here. *whistles and wanders off*

Ohhhh no you don't! *reaches out with a Slaaneshi tentacle and drags back* You're going to sit right here and think on what you've done while I determine which part of my new Daemonette biology I'm going to test out... ;)

Meep!


Also, in other news, despite fussing over it for so long, ive finally settled on a concept, Slanneshi psyker blademaster, i think we only have one other psyker (the 1ksons) so it shouldnt be too much of a issues, shes mostly focused on melee and such, and only psykers to the point that it improves her melee.

If youd like Sin, we could work out some past connection between them.

I'm totally ok with that. Since this place is chaos-made-manifest I assume there's plenty of places to meet up for plenty of reasons.

The "Scream Queen" is all about being an Anti-Sororitas, so partnering with "The Witch" is right up her alley. If making a concerted effort in hunting down, capturing/killing Sororitas sisters is an idea the character can get behind, they could totally be a tag-team duo in that regard. Both on a crusade to bring down the orders of the Emperor's daughters.

...I mean... we'd go for the Astartes but well... they're really really big. And one of them shrugged off a point blank blast from my noise-cannon... soooo, yah.

The Dresden Files has a nice system where players 'guest star' in each others back stories. It means they have previous connections, and a reason to work with the others. I think it would be easy enough to plot similar links here.

Interesting.  Two Slaneeshi so far.  At least we don't have any Nurglings; I'd have some real issues there.

Short version for my BG so far is that this guy is a relic hunter... Power through all sorts of artifacts and the like.  He's old school Thousand Son, still in the red armor, thrown forward when he was exiled with Ahriman.  He'd probably be able to get along mostly okay with the two Slaneeshis... He's going to be a bit deluded, thinking that he's not owned by Tzeentch already, so demonic marks and possessions will need to be... encouraged.

I hope he'll be able to hold his own in combat compared to everyone else... a blade master, a noise Sister, someone who wanted an autocannon... and all I'm doing is hurling around Doombolt.

Yah, but we're still squishy humans. I've seen what Marines can do in other Warhammer games. If you're marine is even half as good as a normal marine, my noise sister and her like... 50% chance to hit with her noise canon won't be able to hold up much compared, even if she is mostly daemonette now. Which is kind of cool actually.

Hey! dont knock Nurgle, if i hadnt rolled the One Result on that reward table that i cant stand, then id be playing one :P. Theres more than one way to portray a child of papa nurgle than a walking pustule of gangrenous corpserot.

Also, i wouldnt worry, Psychic powers are pretty potent assuming youve built a psyker XD

I don't remember the mechanics for how to hit with things, but my combat skills (at least the way I perceived it) wasn't all that amazing.  He's got (I think) a 50/50 chance hitting things with his force sword... but he's got a 50 willpower with +3 Unnatural... and a psy focus.  That's decent, right?  +60 and 2 degrees of success?

Never played before... I think I'll lose in a gun fight, but I should be pretty decent hurling lightning around.

And it's not me that doesn't like Nurgle.  It's Tzeentch.  Change vs Decay. :p

You could probably get away with it with either the Wealth passion?

Hey, I wanted to be a cute Unaligned Renegade with oversized guns and walking around in Termie Armour, but I couldn't have that either :(

Still, at least we'll have someone capable of taking down small tanks without getting into melee.

To be honest, I actually had a back up idea if I needed.  But we'll see what happens.  I just always play 1k Sons in 40k, so... *shrugs*

no one said you couldnt, i was joking about killing you for your force sword  :P

and Terian, the difference is that no one gets terminator armour, while all psychic adv artchtypes get force weapons (1ksons, magisters) while core (sorc, psyker) archtypes have no way to do so.

But its okay, i have a plan O_O.

Ha, so they do, so its just me that doesnt. Rather proves my point though doesnt it?  ;D

Anyway, its fine, you can convert primitive weapons to force weapons, so im going to get one of those, then hump a heretek's leg at some point to get them to convert it for me.

 Oh, don't worry. You'll be facing a Deathwatch kill-team in your first forray. There will be a Librarian with a force sword and a guy in termie armor.

Shortest game ever. You should also add a titan for the extra overkill factor.

 It's possible to beat them.... in about 20,000xp.

 The force weapon is not so bad. The Termie armor though, is. Termie armor makes you immune to anything short of a melta or AP rockets.

:O But that means the Termie Armour won't fit when we eventually figure out how to kill them!

That being said, I could certainly do damage with my Autocannon, it'd just take a while.  3d10+8I Pen 6 means that I penetrate the Terminator Armour before even rolling dice, which means I jusneed to roll decently well on my damage to break Toughness Bonus.

I mean, yeah, if you're using small-arms, (Which include hand-held Boltguns), Termie Armour is huge.  But against a heavy anti-vehicle weapon?  They're tough but killable.

If my sonic cannon and I could get into near-melee range with the termie, I could do SOME damage... but it's an Astartes. Short of a biotitan they just kind of shrug it off and keep coming.

You know that thing does 6d10 with 6 pen right? with melta and overcharge, you can do alot more at close range. It also has spray, concussive and devastating out the wazzo.

I'm fairly certain that you could gib a space marine on a good roll.
