We could always do our own forum, www.freeforums.org has a 30 ad free thing going on, and I think it is what some of the other games are being played on.

adding swampdog to the mix brings us to:
Do we have anyone capable and willing to GM yet?

I know it might be a ways out, but what were people thinking for classes? Might get the creative jucies flowing. I was thinking Apothecary myself. Seems like they don't get much love. Thoughts?

I'm playing a Devastator in the other game I just joined.
If I got into a 2nd I'd want to try an Assault Marine. Probably a Blood Angel.

I was torn from either picking DA or Imp fists. Or perhaps a second founding from either.. something with a little bit of easy going flavor. Seems like most brothers of the helix seem out of the "zone" and not as edgy.

I'm not entirely sure on which Specialty, but I'm jumping between Techmarine, Tactical Marine (more a scout/long-range build), Devastator or Librarian. As a Space Wolf, since that's the only Chapter I really know a lot about and could pull off ^^;; More interested in a Techmarine or Librarian, but if people already want those roles, I'll happily play something else.

I'm a bit rusty in general at GMing (trying to get back into the swing of things actually) and have never GM'd PbP but I could give it a shot if you are looking for someone.

So here is where we currently stand:
Looks like we have gotten ourselves a fine group!
Time to find a place to host this and go from there?

PbpHouse has a nicely streamlined forum setting, making it ridiculously easy to navigate, but you have to register and wait for a moderator to approve you (to weed out bots and the like) or just email all the admins again and again. Nerdbound has a built in dice roller (never used it, but supposedly good) and you don't have to get admin approved.

I'd suggest Nerdbound.
Gurkhal and I are in a game there as well so that will be handy.
Plus Karmadef can use the existing game there as a resource as well. It can be handy to have other games as examples for DM's that aren't steeped in experience. I know they help me!

Sounds good to me, will post up when there is a topic . Also, Karmadef, is this your first PBP or just first DMing?
Posted 15 April 2011 - 07:26 AM
Signed up on nerdbound, kept the same username to make life easy.

I'm signed up over there as well. Hoever I couldnt use "Jer" over there so I used "Eighteez". Sorry for any confusion.

Over there as Drace.
So what are we looking to do for character creation? All rolls, Build Point for stats and dice for everything else? Are we going to use the extra rules for armour marks, armour history etc from RoB?
Also, planning to play a DA or Successor (Probably a Consencrator) chapter Devastator. If someone else wants to play a devastator, I can easily step aside and play a different class.

I'm fine with whatever the GM wants.
I'd prefer to keep it "by the book" since I am new to the game.
