Dark Heresy 2e Interest Check: A Galaxy Ablaze
« on: June 01, 2015, 04:32:34 PM »
 This is an interest check for a Dark Heresy idea I'd been cooking up for a little bit. For now, just looking to see if I actually have people interested in playing in a game. Books available are both the core book and Enemy Within.

 Edit: Character creation rules!

 You have a choice, roll or take points. Roll is 2d10+25 (3d10 take highest/lowest two for a +/- stat), rerolling one roll. If the rolls don't add up to at least 100, you can take 100 points spread between the ten stats. Or save the time and take the 100pts right away.

 No mechanics is needed right now, just some basic info (heading to bed, will be amended when I get the chance)

 Name:
 Home World:
 Background: (not an actual background, but the one you pick for mechanical bonuses)
 Role:
 Diviniation: (roll for this, 1d100)

 And now the fluff-intro!

 The Calixis Sector is a powder keg. Between the Tyrant Star and the Spinward Front, it is a hotbed of unrest just waiting to collapse into darkness as the Jericho sector once did. While the Astra Militum fights with countless souls in countless battles across the Sector, it is the Inquisition who move in hushed shadows and strike with silent precision. It is their task to uncover the countless heresies that ravage the Sector, to go where the massed forces of the Imperium cannot.


 So, the idea is something akin to NCIS: Imperium of Man. Not only investigating heretics, alien and daemonic corruption, and general incompetence but also fighting the enemies of the Imperium in small skirmishes leading up to massive battles.

 For character creation, you have two choices. Standard rolling or 100pts, then adding 25 to each of the values. If you roll under 100pts, you can choose to simply take the 100pts.

I'd be interested. I've never played before, however, but I have the core book.

I actually rather like it. Werid effect divinations are way better than stat ones imo. +20 is a pretty amazing bonus on a WS or dodge test. Good time to pull out those fancy moves.

Someone tags you, you get to hit them back. What more could a loyal servant of the Emperor ask?

I'd like to express interest.
I've had a character in mind to play. But unfortunately, I'm the GM in my group.

 Home World: FORGE WORLD
 Background: Adeptus mechanicus (for the autogun and monotack servoskull)
 Role: Warrior
 Diviniation: The wise learn from the deaths of others possibly from inbuilt combat recordings?

Have you checked out "sheild of humanity" the 2nd only war expansion, has rules in there for some mechanicus based characters (also 100% ogryn regiments)

That's actually the one book I don't have. First post updated with chargen and an intro of sorts into what the game is about.

The Lathe World book also has All the Stuff for new admech, more or less. More detailed than SoH too. Always wanted to make a proper electropriest.
