Giant sign floating in space pointing to a planet that says "'Ard scrap 'ere!"
Yeah this is pretty much it. If you build a Fortress World, Orks will come.I still think building a Fortress World is going to take centuries and bankrupt you, plus there's very little profit to be had in it since in order for it to "work" you have to literally transform the entire surface of a planet into garrisons and then keep them maintained with the best equipment and dozens of ships and space stations in complex orbits around your planet forever.
I really hope this is your Rogue Trader having the richest midlife crisis ever. That or he's really committed to the greatest succession crisis ever, and has started planning it long before it would be needed.
Ladies, Gentlemen, claimants all. My Warrant of Trade is somewhere on this planet. They have orders to murder anyone attempting to land. They have orders to murder anyone who does land. They have orders to murder anyone who cannot produce the randomly generated identification token on demand. They have been trained for centuries and hardened against the Orks, the Rak'Gol and the endless creditors who insisted I had to pay for these materials. Whomsoever finds and escapes with my Warrant of Trade shall claim my entire Dynasty, which consists entirely of this world.
That may actually work... Hmm...
But the thing is I didn't actually plan on paying for it. At least, for all of it. It's a long-term goal, I figure I have time before the Waaagh! really gets rolling, and I'll be needing resources.
1) I need a fake relic. Something Drusian. Something epic. Now, I've spoiled myself a little and saw that there's a certain Battleship that's around somewhere. If I could get a piece of that...
2) I owe the Mechancius. And the Ecclesiarchy. I intend to pay it and indebt them to me.
3) Damaris. I intend to own this sucker--err, assume rulership of this fine colony. It's a trading hub, a centre for worship, and a manufacturing centre.
4) Quite right Ruwalk, I've been eyeing the Heathen Stars as my dynasty's home base of sorts. Naduesh was going to be my first real colony (after taking Damaris).
This will take years of game time, and potentially a year of real time if we keep up the pace of our games. Possibly longer. I just want something to build towards.
Also, how does tithing work for Rogue Traders? Are we allowed to take tithes since we are the Emperor's direct representative? Because I'm totally going to be needing tithes.
