 Kroot Carnivore

Characteristic Bonus:
Weapon Skill, Agility: +10
Ballistic Skill, Strength, Toughness, Perception, Willpower: +5
Starting Aptitudes: Perception, Willpower, Toughness, Agility, Strength, Fieldcraft

Starting Equipment: Kroot Rifle, mono-knife, Kroot leathers (2 AP all), micro-bead
Starting Wounds: 11+1d5

 


Eaters of the Dead: Kroot may devour the flesh of a fresh corpse (no more than a day dead) to gain temporary Wounds equal to the corpse’s unmodified Toughness bonus. These cannot exceed the Kroot’s own Toughness bonus, and last the for a number of hours equal to the Kroot’s Toughness bonus.
Natural Hunter: Kroot treat forests, jungles, swamps, and other similar environments as open terrain. The Kroot also gains +1 to Initiative rolls.
Kroot Beak: The Kroot’s beak is a Natural Weapon with the following profile: 1d5+SB R
Kroot Physiology: When wearing armor that provides more than 3 AP, the Kroot loses the Natural Hunter trait.
Mercenary: May roll Profit Factor/Logistics instead of Willpower for Fear and Pinning tests.

As a 500xp Elite Advance, the Kroot may purchase a Hyperactive Nymune Organ, which grants the Kroot an additional Reaction per round. If this special ability is used two rounds in a row, the Kroot takes a level of fatigue unless he passes a Toughness test.

Why does the Freeboota have only 5 Aptitudes while the Dark Eldar has a whooping of 8? Weapon Skill should be an absolute must for an Ork. For the DE I would remove Intelligence. He may be Eldar, but he's still a warrior, not a scholar. And for the Kroot I would replace Toughness with Weapon Skill and Willpower with Offense, since Kroot are melee specialists more strong than they are tough.

 I echo Junkiman's sentiments. The HNO also function as the print talent for the Kroot.

Revised Aptitudes:

Kabalite Warrior: Weapon Skill, Ballistic Skill, Perception, Agility, Finesse, Fieldcraft

Freebooter: Strength, Toughness, Willpower, Offence, Fieldcraft, Weapon Skill

Carniovre: Perception, Offence, Weapon Skill, Agility, Strength, Fieldcraft

 

Considering making specializations for the Mekboy and Weirdboy, and perhaps an Elite Advance for Kroot Shapers. Also definitely planning on more Dark Eldar. 

 

To differentiate from the printed HNO talent, the test is now at -10.

Freebooter needs Defence - he doesn't get the appropriately cheap wounds, toughness advances and resilience talents otherwise. I'd probably drop Willpower for it.

Sound Constitution's aptitudes are now Toughness, General from the Beta Updates. That said, I think he could use the Defence aptitude anyway. Will change!

 I think the HNO could be used as printed from into the storm, it's a powerful talent, but it needs to be to make up for the fact that kroot are stuck using AP 3 armor.

I'll figure it out.

 

Considering making a Haemonculus, incubus, and Mekboy next. Any suggestions?

If you're introducing a Mekboy, then the Freeboota should drop Tech-Use. Also, the Unnatural Toughness for regular Orks is (+2), not (+3). You should also introduce the rules for the different Klans into char-gen.

Did you make up that Dark Eldar, or is there a supplement in RT that has that and you just modded it?


I wish I lived around people who actullay played games instead of just calling themselves gamers....

I may type up the Klans, along with the various Kroot breeds and Dark Eldar things. The +3 thing was on oversight on my part. I'll remove Tech-Use.

They are pretty much identical to the Soul Reaver career path that just came out.
