Hey fellow brothers.
Atm. im playing as an Assault marines of the Black Templars.
My characthers concept is not being overly strong, but having enough hatred to kill the enemies of the Emperor.
The first thing - nothing about the GM, is that no chapter i have seen, get Hatred (Chaos Space Marine), and not even through the General Space marine lists… i find that a bit weird..
The problem I have with my GM is, that he isn't large enough about a few things.
1: He allowed people to take an optional career (like Tyrannic War Veteran) which wasn't optional at the start. The reason he allowed this, was because a female friend of us (GF to one of the boys) would like to join us, but as a Sister of Battle instead of being a brother to us marines (which is kinda understandable). The problem is now, that he want to take back his words allowing us to advance through different careers, like the Sword Brethren as my optional advance. Most of my character concept were about being one of them, using all the different hatreds (got 6 different ones at rank 3) with the special trait of the SB - Sword Brethern, and of course talents like Scourge of Heretics ect.
What's your opinion about this ?
2: I know that the talents Scourge of Heretics, Hunter of Aliens and Slayer of Daemons are "made up by GM's opinion". But seriously.. I can't get my bonus against Chaos Space marines - cause "they ain't heretics" (which make me think that he is only ref. to cultists).
If I really have to fly - !"#! the rules, then Orks, Eldars and Tau ain't aliens, but other species of Humanoids. All of the races can talk, reproduce themselves ect ect. Which ends up with Tyranids (and / or Necrons) to be left behind as Xenos / Aliens.
Is it just me getting mad, or are my GM too strict about the rules - refering to "The book is only a guide line" statement.
Your opinion ?
