How to approch your GM [Step by Step]
- Be Prepared, Polite, and Courtuse: Make shore you're not being a 'tard' before you ask, as well as ready with the new weapon's stats and the old weapons stats (prefably from the book itself to show him/her your templit is lagit) along with some history (the more the better to show you serious) and alway be polite.
- Location, Location, Location: Find time before or after a game and ask him (or if possible a mid game brake) when you and he/she can be some what alown. [Option1] Simply ask "Would it be possible to add/make/requistion/find a new gun in the game" [Option2] sutily lead into the topic "Isn't weird / Arent you supized that BL / FFG only put a hand-full of guns in the armory section?" Something to that effect.
- Try, Try Again: If no to the frist part dont get dicuriged. Try making the point that it is a galaxy of guns but dont push to hard this is GM taratory and your truspassing (You dont want Slaneesh demons to come outa nowhere and **** ya jest cuz you asked rudly). Just enfasis that it would mean a lot to you and ask him/her to hear you out. Normaly you will be able to make your case. This is where part 1 comes in If you were a coutuse player you'll have better luck here, if you were polite talking to him/her you'll have better luck here, and if your're prepared with history, weapon stats, and how it could come to be in you hands (hipathedicly).
Example of the above:
Player : "Excuse me Mister/Miss GM could I pretty please requisition a AK47, Assault Kapella "47". Its an Armageddon autogun with a "clip" of 30 and one more damage and pen but has ridicules recoil giving it a -10 BS unless braced and cuts the range by 20%."
GM : "Well what dose that bring the stats to Player?"
Player : "Ok, one sec, let me see I wrote it down some where . . . Ya here it is. It has range 80 metiers, single shot, 2 semi,and 6 in rock and roll mode, dam 1d10+5 with 1 pen, the mag holds 30, and reload takes a full round. Almost forgot it has Reliable and Kick like a grox qualities"
GM : "Kick like a grox?"
Player : "The BS penalty thing."
GM : "Nice. Good integration of the universe."
Player :"Thanks. Soooooo is it ok, can I make the test?"
GM : "One sec, that sound pretty good but where dose the gun come from?"
Player : "Thought you never ask . . . " he says pulling out the Dark Heresy core rule book "In the Drusus Marches sub sector of the Calax . . ." He opens to page 288(pre marked for easy access)"On 47 Kellpa . . ."
GM : "I thought that was a war world?"
Player : "As it is said war is the mother of invention."
GM : "Isn't that adversity"
Player : "Same diff, anyway. Harsh fighting lead to the modification of an Armageddon autogun by a veteran guardsmen that was out of ammo. With a brake in the battling the guardsman reworked it to fire most popular round available. It was to the local big game hunting rifle's hence the added stopping power. But as most genus it was not realized till after his death. Soon after he returned to HQ holding his 9 kilo amalgamation of death dealing perfection he was executed for tech heresy. As soon as his summery execution was finished, not even before the Commissars bolt pistol could stop smoking the base was attacked and the Commissar only got one round of before it jammed on him with no other option he picked up the gun. The Commissar began firing into the on coming enemy even with its egregious recoil the results spoke for themselves. It dropped foe after foe with remarkable eaz. The tech priests noted its superiority to the weapon it once was and a short time after the victory that insewd "ancient" schematics of the weapon were found by the witnessing tech priests. And the weapon is in mass production on several Calaxis Hive and Forge world but still bares the name of the original world it saw its frist action on."
GM : "Nice story and a cool gun but I think it should be 5 not 6 for rock and roll mode. Plus with the new rules for full auto do you really think its guna get six hits, also make the dam 2d5+5, 0 pen and 2 full rounds to reload because of the mag's akword size and shape."
Player :" Ok I can exept that. So the last thing, I didnt make any sort of gess on, the rarity. "
GM : "What is an Armaggdon's rarity?"
Player : "Average."
GM : "Hummmm . . . well were not exactly in the Calax and the gun isn't exactly standard, standand issue so increase the rarity by 2 degrees and we will get this set up and rolled up when we reconvean/before the next game"
