Hi. I'm having some trouble with thinking of fresh ideas for my campaign. Basically, I know what it's about but I think I need some ideas/suggestions on how I can flesh this out, It's my first rogue trader campaign and I've been playing in another rogue trader game for about 5 sessions, so I don't have much experience with Rogue Trader. I've been playing Dark Heresy for more than a year.
Here's the roundup so far: The whole campaign is based on a bunch of xenophiles and xenos waiting and planning for the return of an ancient xenos deity andf the explorers got themselves involved by agreeing to ferry some of the inquisition's acolytes to an unclassified planet where the cultists were seen heading to. They've already discovered xenos cultists in their crew and got them arrested. Needless to say, the cultists (on the planet) knew who the acolytes were and their purpose and had them in custody..I don't want to go into detail on what happened next. Let's say that it invloved a very, exciting space-ship chase. Anyway, they managed to escape and are currently on a hive planet, getting their ship modified. I'd like to point out that the Rogue Trader is very paranoid.
So far, I've had about three space combat encounters (and we're about 4 sessions in) and no ground combat. I don't want to have all or most of the combat in space. I'd rather have limited space battles. Oh, the explorer's ship has a teleportatrium, so they can teleport out of trouble in a hurry (I don't want to have them use it all the time).
Any suggestions or pointers would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
