Greetings, fellow Acolytes and Inquisitors. I've been mostly lurking about the forums, and I've only just registered to take further part in your discussions. I have one particular inquiry.
I've rolled up a Noble-Born Assassin, raised up by his Rogue Trader mother as a secret member of a death cult while maintaining a genteel appearance to high society. Currently mulling over which of the secondary Peer options (from Supremely Connected) would best fit - the Ecclesiarchy, the military or the underworld. I'd like to hear your suggestions behind these choices.
Combat-wise, I'm thinking of choosing between a dual-melee combatant, a sword-and-pistol fighter, or just switching between styles as needs demand(having deep pockets and connections does help in one's personal mission of offering heretical blood to the Emperor, after all). I'm planning on avoiding the Moritat as the oft-selected choice of background, but given that, would a melee assassin still do fine even without the Bloody Edge? Secondly, how do sword-and-pistol combatants fare lately? I'm thinking of something like laying down suppressing fire with an autopistol then charging towards the nearest Pinned opponent, or something to that effect.
