Greetings and salutations.
I'm planning to try out GMing and got a scenario idea I'm working on to introduce our group to BC with. I've a fairly good idea of how I want to pull it off, but being in this role for the first time I figured it wouldn't hurt to hear some ideas and insight from outside.
Starting situation is roughly the following: As a result of an incident between two rival groups of Chaos folllowers, the PCs find themselves drifting somewhere between the Warp and real space/in the warp, having lost the fight and instead of being executed ending up to be creatively sacrificed. The ship is largely running on emergency power and there's no telling when key systems like shielding and life support will fail completely. The crew has already splintered into smaller groups and factions, some in their desperation calling out for salvation from the powers of the warp, others hoping to appease those powers by sacrificing other crew members. Some ambitious individuals harbour ideas of taking advantage of the situation to rise to power. Daemons present an ever increasing threat, slowly forcing their way through the crippled defenses, drawn to the despairing souls and slaughter.
And that's where our group has to macgyver themselves out of one way or another. A number of obvious and less obvious options are in place to make a difference in the outcome, and the order in which things are sorted out/time spent on each will affect everything else. The description I provided will largely be what the PCs will be aware of at the start and it's up to them to figure out how to go about it. Details I'll for now leave out because a) I'm still working on them and b) I don't want to risk revealing too much if some of the group decide to snoop around here.
The scenario has, as I see it, at least two major pros: it allows any and all kinds of characters and has a number of ways for them to operate, and it leaves me plenty of freedom as the GM since the situation is rather, wait for it, chaotic and pretty much anything can happen.
Anyway. Feedback/ideas I might or might not want to use?
