I am as you may have guessed, new to GMing. After years of searching for that perfect group of friends who are not only excited to play Deathwatch and worked it into their schedules (bi-weekly Mondays), but are also highly knowledgeable of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.
In the introductory mission, after they are met by the "Master of the citadel" I created, the players are split up and have to find their way through a maze. Each maze will be different and I will be tracking their movements through maps I made on my laptop. It will literally be a "I turn left, I turn right, I go straight, blah blah blah". I will mention how many paces they move before each turn comes up so that if they wish, the players may draw out their path to help remember. Throughout the maze, they will be attacked randomly xeno life forms. Possibly Genestealers. Orks would be fun, but I honestly see Orks tearing the place up rather than wait to ambush someone.
Once each of the players are out of their mazes, they will be reunited into a large room with many dueling circles. There they will be pitted against each other in duels of honor to test their martial skills.
With that being the actual playing part of the mission, I guess I just need help figuring out how much exp and renown to hand out. I was thinking…
400 exp. Winners of duels gain 2 renown and the overall winner of the duels gains an additional 1 renown and 100exp.
Does that seem fair, or am I just doing it wrong and quit GMing?
