  1. Loved the movie. Not sure how this will work out, but at $24.95 it might be worth a purchase. It does seem you have the right tone for the Baron.
  2. I'm a big fan off the rules updates to 2nd edition. I think it's a complete system even with only 6 products to it's credit. The rules updated brought it in line with Black Crusade and Only War so a lot of the material can cross over between the three games. In my opinion it's worth picking up. DH1 will always have a place in my heart, but I felt DH2 was needed to rebalance the power creep. The only thing I didn't like was the change of needing to roll for equipment, but a GM can provide whatever is needed as a care package from the group's Inquisitor if the group rolls poorly to acquire what they need.
  3. With the end of the GW licensing, I assume this FFG app will stop being sold on the APP store. Will we still be able to use it after the discontinuation of the license?
  4. I can imagine that FFG bringing a miniature based competitor to market has a lot to do with GW not renewing the license. What makes it even easier is how FFG has been cranking out Star Wars licensed stuff and letting the GW license stagnate on all but a few games like Conquest. I'm sad to see the relationship end, but I'm sure GW will get their products to market with a vendor they don't see as direct competition. Not 100% certain this is the reason, but it makes sense. GW doesn't always make the best decisions for their IP so only time will tell if this comes back to bite them.
  5. Untouchables have no connection to the warp so they can't feel the same revulsion for each other that others do. Likely they would be unaffected by each other's presence.
  6. The adeptus administratum works as you say, but quality doesn't so a starting character can't start with light power armor unless your GM agrees to it. Quality provides a bonus to influence roll to requisition only. With your scenario you could get it as a rare item with a +10% bonus to the roll, but that would be after play starts. Your GM can always bend if you come up with a good story or are starting with additional xp for more advance play.
  7. 13 pages and the original poster hasn't commented again... I smell a troll. A successful one at that.
  8. I still think that Sage or Seeker can do those roles better. Chirugeon has Dedicated Healer and the role seems to be based around that rather limited role.Actually, the Chirurgeon clearly states they make excellent torturers using their medical knowledge to "dig" out the truth.
  9. I wonder if it's not the warp engine that requires a ship to be big, but the gellar field generator. Maybe more mass is required to maintain a safe gellar field. I like the idea of the cutter acting like the bridge of a ship detachable from the warp engine/gellar field generator.
  10. Ex. A character starts with a 35 Influence. - Book states characters should receive between 3-5 influence over an adventure lasting a few sessions (3). - This equates to 3-5 (assuming an average of 4) influence being worth approximately 1200xp based on the abstract method of awarding 400xp per session. - Based on a starting influence of 35, you need 40 points to meet the 75 influence threshhold. - At 4 influence equalling 1200xp (40 influence divided by 4 is 10 and 10x1200xp=12,000xp) - I'd say you need exactly 12,000xp (not including the starting 1000xp) My guess would be roughly 13,000xp starting level is reasonable for an Inquisitor on the fast track.
  11. Actually, the goal of the eccleisiarchy is to look after the Emperor's flock and defend it from corruption. In fact, the Ministorum goals really coincide very nicely with the Inquisition's goals. They use their faith in the Emperor to root out heresy and protect their flocks. The more zealotous of the Ministorum see this heresy everywhere and uses more extreme means to protect the Imperium of man. I played a fairly moderate Ministorum priest for over 4 years. He started out as a fairly naive priest and as he was exposed more and more to chaos and corruption, he became darker and more grim in his administration of justice. I myself am not that religious, but I had a blast playing this character.
  12. Personally, I think the point of the map is to show that the sub-sector is so saturated with warp energy it affects the whole sector. I think the saturation actually causes distance between worlds to bend... Travel is really imprecise. Nothing can be predicted and it's dangerous to travel anywhere. The map itself is only to give you relative points and distances between worlds. I like the setting, but I think they went to extremes only to differentiate itself from the prior setting. In this setting, you're required to use everything at your disposal to fight chaos because it is a losing battle. Inquisition is not well represented so each Inquisitor feels an enormous amount of pressure on them and feels like the are drowning in enemies. In fact, they likely are. It's great that Calixis is still out there for those that want to run a more vanilla campaign, but I think Askellon offers an interesting alternative.
  13. Warp capable ships are massive. Eisenhorn berthed his gun cutter on rogue trader vessels. He had a favorite RogueTrader he used whose entire ship was crewed by servitors only. The trader himself was more machine than man. Overall, it's your game and you can do what you want. An archeotech or xenos vessel may work for you if it has to be small. Gun cutters though are not warp capable by the fluff.
  14. Don't think of the Chirugeon as a healer, but rather a Medical/Forensics/Torture expert. They can heal and probably did before their career started in the Inquisition, but likely they'll be using their medical knowledge to assist the Inquisition in a CSI capacity... Medical Examiner... Expert on torture... etc...
  15. Well, by Chaos god of Order, I would like to infer that It would be as tyrranical as the Imperium of Man is. As humans would create the god in their own image (similar to the desires of the Eldar becoming Slannesh.) If he were the Chaos God of Order, he'd be a tyrranical god who enforced order (his order) with an iron fist. Since it would be created by men from their actions/thoughts manifesting int he warp, it wouldn't truly be the Emperor anymore. Additionally, I don't really think the Emperor is truly alive in the setting. He is described as a corpse god decaying on his golden throne. The pictures of him in books show him as skeletal. I personally think they are using him as a conduit now and that his body and mind are basically shattered. I don't think there is any recovery from that. I think if the Imperium knew the truth on a massive scale that the emperor was indeed dead, it would shatter the chains that currently bind whatever's left of him to his golden throne (spiritually) and a new Chaos God would emerge. Of course, nothing in this setting is definitive, but that's the way I choose to look at it.
