I am starting a rogue trader campaign, it will take place over the internet we will play on a simple map and with words. It is a "role playing game" with a setting in the Warhammer 40000 universe. I own all the rules and more. These rules are transferable (from my computer to yours). We will record the play sessions on audio so that I can turn it into a graphic video.
In the story you play as your character surfing the void beside my character [MarcheStradust] under the command of a Rogue Trader named [ValerienneSolar] from Terra
(Earth that has become a temple-like mechanical city)
Pick your angles, build your morals, test your skills against the wonders of the universe. I can get you started or help you take your Warhammer 40K experience even further.
I will also set a few house rules, like the spaceship combat in the Warp will be different...
While other GM's might play the vessels in the Warp, I speculate the ship fuses with the souls of all its passengers changing the overall mixture into a giant mechanical machination in the Warp. Every character has one turn to act and one dodge thrust action each as the shifting machination, but they all share one lifespan and one movement.
I also made rules for the Webway; the rules are one can teleport anywhere automatically (scatters without a "bridge" or directly teleport when connected by a "bridge"). Anyone with a corruption value has to roll for a corruption test, if failed they add 1d5 of corruption points and have to withstand a mutation roll or leave the Webway before the effects take place.
Multi-classing will be acceptable, however to apply for a different career one has to pay 5000xp. Every character can only have a maximum of 3 careers at once. One can lose any of their careers without repercussion. When it comes to reapplying for a past career you roll 1d10 and on a 1 to 3 you get the career and no problems arise, on a 4 to 6 you forgot your most expensive skill in that career but you still get it, and on a 7 to 10 you cannot get the class. An explorer must have at least one career or is deemed useless and tossed to be forgotten.
If you are interested, contact me and I will help you, first to get the files that you need, then we will get you started with your character creation. When you have finished your character and acquired your first "acquisition" then you are ready for the first mission. I am fairly new to the 40k role-playing scene and having a veteran GameMaster aboard would be very helpful.
