Just when I had expanded my Rogue Trader collection and spent several weekends meticulously going through the books....I get an awesome copy of Black Crusade for my birthday (had been looking awhile but settled on RT since none of my local stores stocked BC). Anyway, I have been getting into it all day and am looking forward to starting a campaign. I always worry, for whatever reason, about contradicting established fluff, but BC seems ok with that. I like the idea in character creation about not being concerned with what comes before, as well as the freedom of "it's the Warp so it's ok".
That being said, I was wondering if you could all offer some advice. I have yet to go through every part of the book in detail, but on my first pass through I had trouble figuring out the main method of moving about the Vortex. I read about Psykers, Heretek Teleporters, Daemon Pacts and The Brass Door as means of transportation but what about ships? I know they exist, but are they a rarity inside the Vortex? Can characters "walk" from planet to planet similar to Webway travel/Dante's Inferno? Can they walk through the void as in the Ragged Helix?
And what about vehicles? I'm sure I could adapt the acquisitions rules from RT for rhinos and the like, but do we think these will be covered in later expansions? (Chaos Engines, Dreadnaughts, and Soul Forge Defiliers etc.)
Thanks in advance!
