    RedMorgan got a reaction from Magnus Grendel in You know you're playing Black Crusade, when...   
    When as a puny mortal you get  renamed 5 minutes into your first session by a CSM  because well its not like you have a choice. 
    When after 5 sessions you don't even remember  your character original name.
    When the 2 female renegades rolls vampiric addiction...at the same time.
    When they start  tagging alone the NL calling him "master" because he gave them blood. And by giving blood I mean shoving the unarmored Chem-Hunter at them.
    When the same NL also end up with vampiric addiction.
    When all session now stats with the argument of  who is drinking who and chem-hunter hiding for his dear life.

    Yeah, they don't really flesh out much, either in the 13th Station of Passage, or the planet of Exile (a second way in and out of the Vortex). As a Rogue Trader GM, Exile is much more relevant to me given that, relative to the 13th Station of Passage, it appears to have access to the Koronus Expanse near Winterscale's Realm, but as I said, it isn't really fleshed out either beyond that a certain organization runs ships back and forth from a single city, and that it's the farthest point the ships of Q'Sal can run to.
     
    To answer your question of what the 13th Station of Passage is to me, if I ran it (or either of them really), I'd just fill the Station with numerous (and often competing) organizations, all bent on getting you in and out...for a steep price. Nobody would be undercutting anyone, because no price in gold or thrones would really do, and everyone would demand something different. Nobody would want you to do business with the other guys, given the competing nature of the Gods and cults, but nobody would want to budge on their price either.
     
    Given the fluid nature of those who often follow Chaos, it could give me liberty to create numerous factions without stomping on canon too badly, and either get rid of some that don't fit, or add new ones, as new ideas come to me, and have the change be believable. The Station itself would simply be a backdrop for a larger setting of a (barely organized) Chaos Port.

    My rituals have not been in vein!  I have the Tome of Decay!  It comes with 6 archetypes instead of the usual 4 so it will take longer than expected.
     
    Vrakas, no external database here, just HTML and JavaScript.  It might be considered "bad" coding but it works!
    The Daemon Prince is really more of an Upgrade than Creator.  I would make a separate program for that and I prioritize a Minion Maker before the Princes.

    Thank you all  for those awnsers.
     
    I won't lie, it is indeed for a young oh so unlucky neophyte follower minion. We decided to give him the trait but not access to all implants (only phase 1 to 5).  I was hoping that the follower trait would have an entry description somewhere but oh well will do with some tweaking.

    Rules for space marine implants are found on page 36 of the main rulebook. I am fairly certain the trait was included intentionally.
     
    Many chapter serfs are aspirants who, for one reason or another, failed to successfully become space marines. While it is not impossible a serf may have gotten to the implantation stage and the geneseed fail to take, or was incompatible with the aspirant's body, the implantation rites of some chapters would preclude this. Blood Angels implant all the organs at once and lock you away in a sarcophagus for a year, failure to take could happen but its more likely you're body's imbalance would kill you. Space Wolves impart you with the Canis Helix then leave you out in the frozen reaches of their planet, incompatability here either get's you killed (being naked) or turns you into a slavering were-wolf like monster.
     
    It also allows a space marine follower, such as a neophyte. (average skill for a greater follower over 9 characteristics is 33). For instance you can easily make a space marine greater follower with the rules, using almost every starting space marine skill and every starting talent/trait (trading extra traits for skills). The only exception a GM would have to give would be the starting equipment, if you wanted to give the follower astartes armor. The space marine implants allow the follower to do all the things a space marine can (hibernate, spit acid, etc.).

    It seems very odd to me that a Chapter would just send one of its Scouts or other Marines with the PC as a follower, outside the normal Chapter chain of command. Or even a failed-but-implanted aspirant. Usually when an aspirant is implanted and still fails, it's because they die - either in training or because their body rejects the geneseed organs and they go into shock and die. 
     
    If that follower is a Space Marine why isn't he independently taking the Apocryphon Oath? From the fluff in FF/HtC it sounds like a lot of times that will just happen even without official Chapter permission, following the Marine being present at some horrible event in the Reach and swearing to stay for vengeance or honor. I don't think that the DW would let non-sworn (or not in-training-to-be-sworn) Marines just hang out on its secret space stations.
     
    So I'd be fine with a serf, but your Space Marine having a follower who is also a Space Marine, even for Black Templars who have that kind of mentorship tradition? I'd say no.

    Sounds useful for a Black Templars character, imo.
     
       
    There was that WD article about Marine suicide squads staffed with failed aspirants ...
     
    ... but stuff like that tends to remain unmentioned these days.
