The wife and I are new to Black Crusade but we are planning to play on a regular basis with a group of friends. I am just seeking some advice and maybe a bit of clarity as to some of the rules, specifically about character creation and outfitting.
I am looking to create a Renegade for some of the more "infiltration" orientated campaigns but I'm stuck as to whether the concept for my character is even viable, I think it is but I'm having difficulty with the rules… mainly because my 11 month old won't give me enough time to actually read them, all 78-billion of them.
I would like my character, Castella Kadis, to be a renegade guards(wo)man. In combat she will be comptetent, to the same degree as a regular guardsman is, trusting her ever reliable lasgun, laspistol and chainsword. It is out of combat where she really excels, her charm and general behaviour has allowed her to manipulate many, but since being touched by Slaanesh she finds herself capable of bending even some of the most unmalleable minds to her will. (I have a, relatively, indepth backstory if anyone is interested.)
So, I've rolled for stats using 2 d10, one allocated for tens and the other to units, I was unsure if I had to- so I didn't roll for infamy. The results I got are as follows;
(in the order my dice-roller app generated them) 97 48 56 96 55 83 94 65 72
I was planning on putting the highest in BS, Perception and Fellowship. Does that sound about right?
Also, I was told grabbing a force-field, probably refractor, would aid in survivabilty and I'm not against the idea, I'm just not sure on the rules on outfitting a character at creation… all the rules seem to mention outfitting in-game. Are the rules the same? There must be some limitations or everyone would be terminator clad monsters, wielding god-aweful weapons and flinging witch-fire every-which-way.
I'm sorry if these are really stupid questions but the offspring won't give me chance to read the rules cover to cover.
Big, expensive book + curious, destructive offspring = bad.
I really appreciate any help you guys/gals can give.
Castella Kadis, Servant of the Emperor… *shifty eyes*
