In the grim darkness of a far future... [interest check]
« on: August 06, 2019, 09:08:02 AM »
Good morning E!

I would love to start a game taking place in the W40k universe.

I have a global idea of the start of the game, which would begin on a falling imperial planet, torned by a civil war against the almost forgotten Imperium.

The players are all part of a group, whose main goal is to survive, but it would be their actions that will shape their history. I will have a character with them, but my main role will be a GM one.

If anyone is in, feel free to answer here :)

Tentatively interested, I like the idea of group survival on a war torn planet but I had a few questions. To name a few: how central is the survival element to the rp? What rating are you planning to shoot for and what kind of characters are you looking for?

Ask everything!

The survival element is not going to be main focus of the roleplay, I would say it would be something to keep in mind while interacting with others, and from time to time there is going to be a shortage of food for example, that will lead the group to take the decision of either raiding a group of npcs or scavenging.

I'll go for an EX rating, as W40k universe is violent enough to deserve these kind of rating by itself.

And for the character, I would say humans, yet if you have an idea that fit the setting, I see no problem incorporating it into the game.

I know everything is a little bit vague, but that is the interest check. It's goal is precisely to find something interesting fora whole group. If

Ask me everything you want to know. Not everything is set already, but as I said, I have the general idea

What kind of power level, for lack of a better word, do you envision? Are the players regular citizens, PDF, Imperial Guard, chaos or genestealer cultists? Will they be in an active warzone, or somewhere abandoned? I'm just looking to get more of an overall feel for what you're thinking of.

I would say, anything you just say. I see something closer to a group formed in the sake of survival, in a planetary civil war ongoing for a few years. After maybe there will be a few pdf to convince the group to take the side of the rebellion, or imperial guardsmen to make them join the imperial side, a genestelar cultist aiming to share his blessings... That will be up to you all, your characters, your choices... And you will most likely be close to battlefield from time to time

I'll go for a freeform system I think, with maybe a few dice roll from time to time

A discord OOC might be handy then, there're likely to be a lot of "can [character] do X?" questions that are so much faster to resolve via a messenger than a forum.

I'll send the player my discord for faster answers, nevertheless they are not supposed to succeed in everything. I prefer for a character to try and fail, for a more interesting story

This could be interesting. What kind of world are we on (hive, civilised, feudal etc)?

Pleased to hear it ! I'll say on a world that used to be a hive world, with a few primal tribes in the deepest forest, but the years of wars have changed the landscape

Cool. And how long will the characters have known each other? Are they an established group by the start of the story, or have they only just run into each other?

It would be more like a per established group, yet fairly new, and you won't know a lot about each other at the beginning

So, we all seem to be for a simple dice system. So here is my idea :

Stats :
between 0 and 10 - 25 point in total for a character
Strength      (Hiting power in melee, heavy lifting, wound resistance...)
Agility      (Chance to hit in melee, avoiding attacks, "parkour"...)
Intelligence   (Using advanced tech, hacking, using healing gear...)
Charisma      (Convicing, resisting spells/warp attraction...)
Perception      (Chance to hit (shooting weapon), environment awareness...)

How to use it:
Roll a d10 and hit less or equal to your stat


Of course I am open to every suggestion and comment about it

It lumps a few things together but for a forum-based game it’s probably a good thing to keep it simple. Should be fine!

That's the idea ^^ I have no intent to do a tabletop game, it's just to keep things interesting by introducing a little bit of randomness
