  1. Roll20 occasionally has a game hosted. Sadly, the last game I tried to join the GM disappeared the day the game was supposed to start, and the other GM that I apped to abruptly pulled the game without a word as well. I don;t know what it is about BC that causes GM's to just pull a Houdini at the last minute.
  2. When you are forced to use Delude combined with your Charm and Deceive to convince the rest of the party that you didn't lie (you did) to cover up your busted plot to kill another party member and they are still side-eyeing you months and months afterward even though you made to rolls fair and square and they all failed because no one but the psyker thought to put points in scrutiny and besides it wasn't my fault the GM totally hosed me anyway not like this really happened in an actual game I really am just making it up because it sounds funny right?
  3. My Pirate Prince has a light cruiser called "Rum, Sodomy and the Lash". Good ole Winston Churchill...
  4. Interesting theory, but buying Phantom Parry seems like a fun way to mess up an enemy psyker. Favoured by the Warp is a good defense against unwanted SDS (Sudden Death Syndrome) due to Perils Gong the route of Bastion of Iron Will is good for resisting those petulant novices who do not rightly respect your POWAH! (Watch out for this, it can get very expensive xp-wise.) I disagree with Talon regarding Psychic Scream. I like it but mostly for SM-types. Mind over Matter is extraordinarily useful. Why fight the critter or SM or whatever when you can push them off the edge of a cliff/hive balcony/ etc. Falling damage should be rightly feared. (Except in cases where jump packs/flying mounts/winged mutations are present) I do agree with Talon's advice about thinking you might be a combat monster. I have a Slaaneshi Psyker who uses Compel and Delude to full effect. I even defended against a party member who accused me of lying (I totally did) and trying to get him killed (that was my intention) by deluding the rest of the party into agreeing with me. LOLOLOL Already had a nice Charm and Deceive percentage (and who really thinks to sink points into Scrutiny except the Social guy LOLOL), which went into the stratosphere with Delude. Good times!
  5. I like all of this! Thanks! Note that I included the vid to display the disjointed effect of existing both in he Warp and in reality at the same time. Carriage and blocking would exhibit what was said above.
  6. Hi all! So my psyker, "Bob" rolled for mutation, and (fortunately?) got Pseudo-Daemonhood. He/she/it is devoted to Slaanesh, so I got a nice upgrade to Agility (YAY!) and a HUGE Fear rating; but I'm a bit worried about the Warp Instability. How does that work in Narrative Time? Does he/she/it constantly "wink" in and out of existence (No in-game benefit or penalty) kinda like how the ghost from The Grudge looked when walking down the hall toward the security camera? I understand how the trait works for any given combat encounter, but how does it relate to everything else?
  7. or stillborn babies with wings delivering messages.....
  8. I guess that might work. It's not really "reversing" the mutation, just adding to it...
  9. Is that possible? Wouldn't Bob have to be "Devoted" to Unaligned to get the benefit? (have five more unaligned points than any other?)
  10. Wish I could like this ten more times. Misery's Lash
  11. I like the idea of the Obliterator virus being playable
  12. Hi guys! I'm not sure if this was covered. Let's say we have a psyker. Named Bob. Bob has 9 corruption and really likes the roleplay for Slaanesh. Bob has three points to Slaanesh, but one point to Tzeentch (stupid Warp Sense...blah! I bought them backwards at character creation). So Bob needs at least three more points to be Devoted to Slaanesh (and gain all the goodies inherent). But he only needs one more point to trip a mutation. Let's say Bob goes to 12 Corruption before he is able to buy the skills/talents/characteristics needed to earn the three points for Devotion. So Bob rolls on the table, adjusts as best he can and winds up with Slayer Limb. Sweet! A short time later, he is able to buy the skills necessary to shift to Devoted. Does Bob's Slayer Limb now pick up the traits to Slaanesh as well (Crippling (1D5) Quality)? Or does it remain a plain 'ole Slayer Limb?
  13. I'm sorry but I disagree with this. I will agree that the psyker is using a power. But that power is creating a weapon. The only difference between TK-weapon and a normal one is that the TK weapon will go away if the user is denied the opportunity to sustain it (unconscious, stunned, etc). Otherwise, the TK weapon uses the WS characteristic to determine hitting or missing, it can be parried, and uses the Strength characteristic to determine additional damage. Legacy weapons are meant to be the one-and-only weapon and presents a very limiting effect for all the extras (additional traits, damage and pen grow with the wielder, etc) that are afforded to it. Hence the penalties for using a different weapon while possessing a Legacy weapon. Unless circumstances dictate that the Legacy weapon has ZERO chance of being useful, then using a different weapon will cause the Legacy item to revert to a normal weapon. This is not to say that a psyker cannot use any other damaging psychic powers (Doombolt, Force Bolt, Force Storm, etc) while also wielding the Legacy weapon, as the mechanic for determining success is different.
  14. I can see how it's a totally cool ritual, but you were tasked at taking over the planet. Maybe I'm missing something here, but wont Exterminatus cause you to lose all the resources of said planet once the virus bombs/nukes/planet-busting lazor beams make your mission a failure?
  15. My BC and DH binding are becoming, or have already come, undone. Shoddy craftsmanship.
  16. Flamers? Not enough. Engage the teleportarium, arm the nova cannon and prepare to nuke the thread from orbit. It's the only way to be sure. You'll never get me!!!!!! Muahahahahahahahaha!
  17. I think you're wrong on this point Adeptus.. Quoting from the Righteous Fury sidebar: "When you roll a 10 on any die, it may indicate that the eye of the Emperor is upon you..." There is no exemption for scatter, there. I agree with everything else (Armour/ Toughness for each hit, etc, but I would rule that any die that comes up a 10 has the chance to cause additional damage.
  18. Or rather, that they care more for their human dignity rather than wage slavery. Or, more likely, extortionist demands for more money (in an economy that shows little sign of being able to sustain it) while demanding more time off. Or, in other words, more pay for less work. Evidence: ruined pallets of product. It's ok though, I'm sure they would approve of your appeal to emotion... OHNOES! whatever shall I do??
  19. All the better to feed this drug to your prey, get them hooked and coming back for more...Addictrix, indeed!
  20. Ok, I'm going to try to help you with this...and in regards to your tender sensibilities and fragile psyche, I'll type slow. If the WORKERS (who are employed by the shipping agency) let the product stay on the dock and get wet, and said "hey guys, let's go on strike...oh what? This stuff? Psshh. What do I care, I'm on strike man!" Then it is their fault. I would've had a ton more sympathy for their "plight" if they had secured the product then went on strike. They have clearly, by their actions (or better yet...the lack thereof) that they don't care for their jobs. Also, get it through your thick skull. I don't care if you're "offended". Your feelings mean nothing to me.You seem to think that crying how "offended" you are will somehow cause me to back off or change my argument for those lazy schlubs. It doesn't. So go wring your hands, or cry, or talk to your therapist, but know this. I'm not at all concerned for your feelings.
  21. From what I understand (look into Battlefleet Gothic...), normal space travel for Necrons involve using their pyramids and smaller crescent shaped starfighters. I'll read up more on it, but so you know, there is a pdf on the GW website detailing the Necron fleet (specialist games<battlefleet gothic<battlefleet gothic resources<Necron and Tyranid Fleets)
  22. Securing the product is the responsibility of the shipping agency once they take possession of said product. Once FFG releases the product to the shippers it is out of their hands. The fact that you cannot recognize this and follow up with appeals to emotion and whining about being "offended" says a lot.
  23. HappyDaze said: Routa-maa said: Well I don't think that FFG can anyway speed up their shipments as they are not the ones moving them. FFG workers are not driving the deliveries to port and loading/offloading them to ships to get them to differend countries. Once I got notification that my preordered book had come to local retailer shop and I was jumping with joy. After I got to said shop, they had to apologies me that it seemed that the whole shipment from FFG had to be send back. All the books and games in that one delivery were soaked because dockworkers had left that one in the rain for whole week as they where on strike. So I was frustrated whit the dockworkeres for doing lousy job not FFG. I just wanted to point these things up and if it seems I poured promethium on flames, it wasn't the intention. It just seems you have bad retailer shops and such in UK. Did you think about why they were on strike? Showing support for thier fellow workers isn't what I'd consider "doing a lousy job" and this event had the potential to catch your attention by making you think about individuals we seldom consider. I'm pretty sure their frustrations were greater than yours in this instance. If those useless pukes let all that merchandise go to a loss because they were too lazy to secure it where it would not be damaged then yes, they did a "lousy job".
  24. From Codex Sisters of Battle (2nd Ed.) only one Sister has ever fallen to the Dark Powers. Miriael Sabathiel Of course, in additional literature, most especially in the graphic novel Daemonifuge, several Sisters were seduced and corrupted; and in Cain's Last Stand, where an entire Mission was converted. Naturally, I prefer to go with Codex only. (Since I have an SOB army, my opinion is skewed. Sue me)
  25. Not that I'm totally busted up about it, but please, please please, include entries in the indices (as I have noticed this across the entire line of WH40K books) as they pertain to the rules. Case in point, for Black Crusade, Alignment to the Powers is an important part of the game, but the general rules for determining Alignment are not referenced in the index. We do, however have an entry for "Alpha Legion" (p. 28 for the uninformed) for some strange reason… Irritating.
