As I am in parallel playing the betas test campaign with +25 characters, I would like to give it a try with novice acolytes this time.
Spoken in point allocation terms:
- each characteristic starts with 25 ("-" with 20, "+" with 30)
- 60 points may be allocated
- no characteristic may end up higher than 40
- no 2 characteristics may end up with the same value
From the style, I prefer to mix that a little, if our campaign will be long enough.
So, I like to use investigation, combat, social encounters & physical challenges.
I would like to play with the following house rules:
1.) DoS/DoF calculation as in OW (per 10 difference)
2.) Called Shots is only a half action instead of a full action; Eye of Vengeance is compatible with called shots
3.) Felling also has an effect on enemies who do not have Unnatural Toughness (counts as -X/2 (rounded up) TB against the hit)
4.) To drop an overheating weapon in time you need an successful Agility (+0) test
5.) Carrying limits (incl. Lifting & Pushing limits) go 1 step down (characters can carry, lift etc. less)
6.) the number of possible cybernetics (incl. limbs) is limited to Toughness Bonus; every additional cybernetic creates 1d10 Insanity points; if you have Mechanicus Implants, they do not count towards this limit and allows a willpower test to avoid insanity points; cybernetic limbs etc. also count as cybernetics; best craftmanship cybernetics do not count towards the limit, good craftmanship count half, poor craftmanship counts double
7.) Bulging Biceps remains on a -10 penalty; basic accurate weapons need to be braced to benefit from bonus damage (bulging biceps does not work here)
8.) Feint steals the reaction if used and is WS versus Intelligence instead of WS versus WS
9.) the Peer talent increases Influence by 1 each time it is bought; the bonus on Influence with the Peer talents may not be greater than 10 in total
10.) The Leadership aptitude counts as an alternative to psyker for willpower increases
--> Willpower aptitudes: Willpower & Psyker OR Leadership
Is there any Ordo preferred ?
Calixis or Askellon Sektor ?
