Thought leads to heresy, heresy leads to retribution
« on: December 03, 2008, 03:31:24 AM »
What I want this time is fairly simple: Dark Heresy, but lasting beyond character creation. Yeah, I'd like the game to actually run for a little while. Every previous time, either the DM vanished or too many players did (yes, including me, once).

The particular setting doesn't worry me - a Space Hulk, a warzone, a hive world, travelling a lot, a cathedral planet... whatever. Likewise I don't mind whether we're newly created characters or experienced veterans or whatever. I prefer girls to the point of not being attracted to guys, so I'd prefer sexual encounters to be primarily of a female nature, but they can be as violent (rape or bondage) as GrimDark usually contains - and that being said, I'm happy for sex to take a back seat in this, just being the occasional between-mission thing.

Or you could have us investigate a group of Slaaneshi deviants, whichever works.

So there are a great many variables there. All it needs is a willing GM.

I could be willing to try GMing again. We never did get that far with the intro scenario, so running it again wouldn't be a problem.

Excellent! Ah, to think that I'll be able to truly play a DH game.

Yeah, well, lets wait and see if anyone else wants to play as well.

Meantime I'll be waiting impatiently for Disciples of the Dark Gods to come out.

Someone on suptg, who is a member here, expressed interest, so that's hopefully a second.

Current ideas:
*noble-born scum of the House Esher kind ("Daddy didn't buy me a new aircraft one week, so I threw a hissy fit and left home to join a criminal gang, with nothing but a thousand thrones and a personal militia (now dead)"). Owns a really nice, modded-up auto-gun complete with lho-stick lighter (looks like an Exterminator cartridge).

*Imperial-world born guardsman by the name of Sgt. Jubblowski. Yes, it's good old Jubblowski!

*A Sister of Battle, very well-read on lores and laws.

I have the Inquisitors Handbook, so those wouldn't be a problem. A SoB might, simply by nature of their puritan stance. If anyone else is tending towards radical behaviour, they'll be getting a bolter round to the back of the head.

Still, we shall see what other ideas are put forwards.

I wouldn't mind a SoB character or maybe an Imperial Assassin to work with the other Sister if that is the route everyone is going.

Well, SoB was just one proposed character, so you don't have to tie something to that.

Hi - this sounds interesting, if you don't mind someone who's new to the site joining up.

I've wanted to play DH for a while now - I'd be interested in playing a Scum character, but, hey, whatever makes for a good group. :)

(If someone did play a SoB, a scum girl with a crush on a SoB sounds like fun...)

In as much as I own it, and read it a while ago - I'll go brush up on the details.

Though playing through this medium is new to me, so I may need a mo to get used to that.

Here's the game thread from the last one we tried to run

http://elliquiy.com/forums/index.php?topic=15266.0

If I play the intro scenario again, that'll be it. I'm ok with showing this, as we didn't get that far into it. One option would be to go on from that point, having said that the new PCs have effectively done the same as the old.

Naturally, if someone has read the intro scenario, they'll know what's going on, so if you have, say so now.

I have Purge the Unclean as well, and can run the scenarios from that, assuming people haven't read / played those.

I haven't read any of the published scenarios - precisely because you never know when a GM is going to run one - so I'm fine with whatever.

Chaos: I do like the idea of a scum girl having a crush on a SoB. I can even see the Battle Sister becoming protective of her... as well as seeing to disciplinary matters.

I've not read any DH scenarios, for the same reason. So whatever works.

mongming, glad you like the idea - sounds like fun :)

So are we using the SoB idea?

« Reply #20 on: December 08, 2008, 11:08:51 PM »
Yeah, why not? I enjoy the lore and stories surrounding them, and that'll allow for Chaos to play the scum girl with a crush. So, Asku, were you thinking of being a Battle Sister as well, possibly from the same order, or going with the Assassin?

Either way, we should probably make sure we have a variety of skills between us.

I think the assassin would be best.  Someone sent to work with the SoB, but who has a different outlook on their job maybe.  Plus I'd have to go buy the Inquistor book and read up on SoBs, whereas I have the DH main book already.

Ok, so that's a Sister, a Scum and an Assassin. I'd ideally want 1 or 2 more to get started with.
