Thank you!  I'm working to expand it and the rest of 40krpgtools.com into a useful resource for 40k RPG GM's.

Great work!

 

I was doing same thing but on much smaller scale (.doc), but I was far from finishing.

 

Thank you v. much :)

Very nice indeed!

Seeing it reminded me again about the idea to make a shop tool for 40k RPG games put I've been put off by the rather daunting prospect of collecting all weapons and armor for it. I would rather like the players use the gear they can get instead of just looking at the tables and selecting what seems to be best they can get their hands on and thus perhaps promote some more exotic choices. Hence the normal system produces a bit of a problem as it presumes that the player knows exactly which weapon (for example) he or she would like to try to get. I don't see this as a problem when they progress a bit and learn more about the technology but I would still like to keep those near unique items a surprise that may or may not come their way.

So I’ve been thinking about coding a small tool that would allow one to select the size of population (as per table 5-4 in Dark Heresy Core Rulebook p. 126) and then produce a list of which weapons are available in that particular shop by determining each randomly. The number of available items could be even determined by having the program roll again if a weapon appears on the list thus each hit adding to the amount.

Original idea was to take the quality into account as well. For example if a weapon has a 70% chance to be in the shop, a roll of 65 would produce a poor quality version of it. Also having the world type (as presented in The Inquisitor’s Handbook) to perhaps increase the chance for certain weapons and lower it for others would be nice but I did not think about it for the initial version.

But in any case an awesome job. Keep up the good work.

Alekzanter:  Thank you!  I've posted it in all five and check in on the posts every day or two ;)  A sticky would be nice though!

 

Hooly:  Thanks for the kind words!  If you'd like to collaborate that could be fun to code it up as a web tool for 40krpgtools.com, if you'd prefer to do it yourself I can make the weapons tables available for you in whatever format you'd need (csv, json, xml).

Bumping, updated recently.   All inclusive except RT Faith and Coin and the new Only War adventure, both of which I'll add soon.
