When, How often, And how much should Corruption be given out in RT?

The Quest for Knowledge has no bounds.

Errr, every time you remake a thread?


Seriously though, Page 299 of the core book.

Whenever the players do something to earn it...  MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!


Seriously, any time the players got to poking around with the warp, they'd earn a d5 or d10 of corruption for their trouble.  The one visit they took to Oblivion (the innermost - and most messed up - of the three worlds in the Processional) saw the players all gain double digit increases.  That actually seemed to teach a little caution.

well the reason I ask is that Rogue Trader seems to have a softer and lighter tone to me compared to Dark Heresy.

The Quest for Knowledge has no bounds.

That's because in DH you are trying to root out the heresy, and destroy it, while in RT, you are trying to track down the heresy, and make it into a trading partner. ;) A little bit less direct exposure to Wrongness, and by people already more enured to it, due to all their gallivanting with terrors, already, in pursuit of the mighty Throne.

This also becomes a thematic issue.  I intentionally play it light with corruption and insanity in my current game, because I'm aiming for a more heroic story, and corrupting influences are not a major part of that story. That being said, "dangerous to know" is a part of my theme, so I require any NPC gaining a Forbidden Lore to gain d5-1 insanity each time they gain a forbidden lore they weren't born in.  (Admech for tech-priests, warp for psychiers etc.)  Note I use the "unfated only have 10 insanity allowed" rule.


So basically, give as much corruption as you want, so long as it feels consistent, but consider the way it effects your game and/or its feel.

90% of the time I'm posting without access to rulebooks.  Unless I say otherwise, assume everything is I.I.R.C.
