Looks cool to me. Feh, lucky lil rich brat, thinks she knows from tough :P

And since (given you can actually gamble) you'll be taking all my hard-earned, too :(

One point though- if I'm reading it right, you're using Supremely Connected to get Peer (Underworld) - wouldn't that mean that your family is involved in Underworld activities? Cool if that's what you want, but it seems like it makes you less of a black sheep, and more of someone hanging out with the employees...

Might make more sense to take a different Peer group. Or buy Underworld with xp, if you do want it.

Or, y'know, ignore me if you want :) It's not like it's a big deal.


As to the three way, we'll just have to see about that... rich girl. :P

You'd be surprised how many families have .. interesting connections.

Of course, they don't come out in polite society. If they did, the person 'responsible' would be cast out, and forced to make their way in an uncaring universe, to show that the family itself is beyond such things.

Shocking.

Simply shocking.

This is what I have so far.  My math may not be 100% as I did this with 2 hours of sleep.  I decided to go with feral in order to play off the SoB's more noble appearance and the social prowess of the other two characters.

-The line between Murder and Retribution is blurred only by emotion.
-Machinery serves only to trap those inside it if they do not understand what it means to be without.

Appeance:
Skin – Tanned with spiraling tattoos stretching across her body.
Hair – Black, chopped to fall just below her shoulders.
Eyes – Blue

Great :)

Yeah I went peer (Underworld) Because the family made its fortune through a rogue trader charter, so they would have lots of those connections, just that upon making the fortune they tried to distance themselves from it. Serena on the other hand didnt :D

Now all we need is for me to get approved :p How much longer does that take?

Heh, yeah, us criminal scum are gonna be doing all the talking I guess :)

I was going to ask, how much are we going to know / decide about our Inquisitor? I'd like to do a bit of backstory writing including how Magda came to work for the Holy Inquisition, but I don't want to tread on any toes... and I don't yet have any particular ideas about an Inquisitor, personally.

With Charm 42% our Battle Sister can also talk - however when dealing with unsavouries she takes a penalty and might consider just wasting them instead, so it'd certainly be best for the scum to take over then. Similarly, if we meet up with the Adeptus Arbites (law enforcement), the criminals might not want to start mouthing off.

As for a threeway, well, let's just wait and see. She can certainly dispense discipline to both of you, putting the gangers over her knee.

Sure and the good Sister is charming enough :)

It's the lying, the fast talking and finding stuff out that the sordid criminals are good at :P

Though, yeah, it's probably a bad idea to let us talk to the Arbites too much...


Oh, and looking back, I forgot to roll my horoscope. Let's see what I get...

Hmm, 36, "Only in Death Does Duty End." Fair enough.

I can't wait until we begin. Even if we won't be losing 100 Baneblades*, participating in Steel Rehn with the Spess Mehreens for the Eprah!**, or hiding in metal boxes***, it will be fun!

*DoW: Soulstorm. Imperial Guard commander Vance Motherfucking Stubbs somehow manages to lose 100 Baneblades. But he makes up for this by sassing a Spess Mehreen and not standing down to them. He has eighty three testicles.

**DoW: Soulstorm. Blood Raven commander Boraele has some kind of speech impediment. So it's Spess Mehreens, the Empra and Steel Rehn.

***DoW: Soulstorm. What the fuck is up with the writing for this game? The Chaos leader mutters about the enemy hiding in "metal boxes" when they enter a Rhino.

Probably one of the Bondage forums. I don't see the need to go NC with it, though we can always change that if/when you run across some Slaaneshi cultists  ;)

Not at all. Are you familiar with the background setting / system?

I've not had a lot of time to catch up on here, but I'm intending to go through stuff tomorrow.

Ofcourse. I am more than ready to burn heretics, kill mutants and purge the unclean.

I will post up a character shortly (within a day or so) and see how well it fits. Most likely will be a Cleric, Arbitrator or Psyker. Feel free to suggest which would be best for the campaign.

I'd recommend against the psycher, simply because we have Sororitas about. I can see the introductions going along the lines of

"Hello, I'm am sanctioned pyscher .."
"WITCH!" *BLAM*BLAM*BLAM*BLAM*BLAM*BLAM*CLICK*CLICK*CLICK*

:)

A cleric would probably fit quite nicely, but at the end of the day the choice is entirely yours.

The Sisters (in fiction at least) tend to be somewhat more puritanical than the =I=. They might tolerate a psycher, but at the first sign of anything even remotely dodgy, its the Emperors Blessing in the back of the head.

In Faith and Fire, they show open hatred for rogue psykers and don't particularly like any psykers:

"And the Astartes? Those mutants (Spess Mehreens) accept these abominations (psykers) into their ranks!"

That being said, the Adeptus Sororitas are on very good terms with Witch Hunter Inquisitors, who tend to be psykers themselves. It's members of the batshit crazy Red Redemption you have to watch out for (although by their standard, "being alive on a cloudy day" is a burnable offence).

It largely depends, I suppose. My Battle Sister would simply ask to set up a key-word system where if it looks like daemonic forces are in control, any of them can say a pre-agreed code word, and then if the psyker replies with the correct answer then they can rest assured that the psyker is in control. An incorrect answer would of course activate a penalty of "exploding in a hail of bolter fire". Somewhat harsher than the penalties for wrong answers in most game shows.

I apologize, finals are eating up my time and so my character will be little more delayed than I expected. Expect a psyker though, I'm a sucker for characters that can creating interesting interaction.
