My fiance has an ascended Scum. A downright mean feral world desperado who has decided to join the Deathwatch game tomorrow. I'm all for it. Obviously, some time must have passed for her to find herself this far from home and hanging with the Ordo Xenos.
In Dark Heresy and Rogue Trader, she got along just fine with a hand cannon or two and a bad attitude. I think she's going to need some gear to play with the Big Boys. There's no way I figure a little slip of a girl can dish out the damage like an Astartes. But I figure some Power Armor (All: AP7) would start to level the playing field a bit. She's always been real keen on not being there when the damage came in. You name it, she's got the damage-avoidance talents aplenty. Are these are ineffective against Hordes (maybe not Hard Target?)
I suspect this will be faced by many in Deathwatch, gender issues aside. (which have been discussed heavily)
As a GM or Player, how do you see Ascended characters faring in Deathwatch? Has anyone else tried it?
