How to become a noble in Rogue Trader Posted July 21, 2016 thank you both for your valuable and extensive input. Its much appreciated. Some background. The RT got his title cause he brought down a powerful chaos aligned pirate in the koronus expanse. At the time he was a privateer. As it happen there was a REALLY powerful house that got a bit too powerful and through extensive political play and the influence of an inquisitor, that RT was brought down. His dynasty stripped and hit warrant of trade passed on to the current 'hero of the expanse', who hence became an RT. The AM was selected through solicitation on Port Wander. I can't remember how the HF got tight into service. The group thus started out as a really low power house (IRC PF 20) with a very strong flag ship (the only ship though at the time). Due to the BG of the RT they chose the path of 'heroism' (with a HF much more focussed on attaining wealth and an AM only focussed on weapons ). They've by now made their name accross the Koronus and especially the AM is already seen as a legendary figure due to the battles she has overcome. They've made some enemies, nice political ties and are currently doing quite well (PF is now 47 IRC) have a couple of ships, trade routes and one assassin house after them due to a contract, Pissed off Nurgle personally so that he has taken a direct interest in screwing them over and made a strong pact with the Eldar. This due to the fact that the AM (who is half Eldar half Human, in vitro created by a scientist who likes to experiment, however very few now this for a fact) picked up a shard of Isha and gave birth to an aspect of Isha, with all merit and **** that comes down with it . (Hence Nurgles personal scorn). And thus they've drawn the (negative) interest of the Ecclesiarchy (who have suspicions, but not actual prove) and both positive and negative interest of a couple of inquisitors. There's a lot more going on though. E.g. the HF figured out that her sister (who has a warrant of trade) might NOT actually have the rightfully claim and the Pilot also appears to have ties to an old RT family... then they have received a small intricate box from eldar and some necrons who have shown a particular interest in that box (although they don't know of the existence of the necrons, just that some alien, metal skeletons are looking for them). And thats about half the plots going on currently . Big fun!! They've just finished a campaign so they can pick up after one of these plot lines and focus once again on their personal goals...like becoming noble. Again much thanks for the thoughts. It helps. If you have anything to add...don't hesitate. Given that I think you should turn everything on its Head next time they meet Eldar. Have the xenos treat the AM extremely well for her connection with Isha while referring to the HF and rest as "lesser" throughout all their interactions.
