The 18th episode of the Grim Dark Podcast has now been posted on iTunes and on our website at www.grimdarkpodcast.com

 

In this episode we delve into the Psychic system in Deathwatch, which leads in to our career discussion - this time about the Librarian. We also review Honour the Chapter and discuss a listener request - mixing characters from across the five systems in to one game.

Happy listening!

Good episode! Not a correction but rather an additional thought from me: the Librarian is not only hated by (some of) his brothers, he is also feared (especially the Blood Angels librarians who are prone to killing with one carelessly angry thought) and respected. One should not forget that in the TT, the Librarian is an HQ selection. If it wasn't for Deathwatch regulations of electing a team leader, the Librarian would be the natural default choice by virtue of rank. This gets reflected in the Librarian's description in the Core Rulebook where it says that the DW Librarians are nominally not attached to a specific kill-team but are part of the Watch Commander's officer cadre instead.

 

So these mixed emotions can make for a much more nuanced roleplay regarding the use of mutant psyker scum esteemed Librarian Battle-Brothers.

Good points as always Alex - it was certainly what we were hoping to convey by indicating that the Librarian is often a man apart from his battle brothers.

 

On a side note - mind if we mention your blog in an episode and link to it?
