  1. Hail and or Howdy All,

    The following PDF are my House Rules for handling FPs in DH2 - with the aim of creating / maintaining more momentum of game play. ATM by raw vanilla FPs are only recouped at the beginning of a Game Session / which after 2 to 3 years of playing (err Game Testing) I found to be too paltry and resulted in slower play in comparison to other game systems... Granted I didn't invent this out of no where and would give praise to the Champions / Mutants & Masterminds for the foundation basis of the House Rules presented herein!

    PDF Fate Points House Rules by MorbidDon

    Enjoy All

    Stay GAMING!

    I'm here and will remain here if you have any questions, concerns, advice, or just plain old shoptalk about Dark Heresy - jokingly in this way I am taking over this forum as it's new Governor > Governor MorbidDon reporting for duty!

    I check this forums at least once / day from MON - FRI so rest assured your posts will be read and answered!

    There are a few other "heads" on here I hope to still see who offer tremendous insight into both the Rules & Lore; suffice to say most of the bias or power-gamey folks have left (which is good) - hopefully in this vein we can continue to build up the FFG 40k game system in a fair and meaningful way that accounts for long term play / re-play-ability!

    I hope to see some more posts soon

  4. Here's a basic set of notes I'm using to guide this effort along...
     
    Most of the Imperium is run on a bureaucracy so convoluted as to defy description. Everything needs a form, and the form always needs to be approved by a different department.
     
    Life in the Imperium is dictated by a color-coded security clearance system, based on ROYGBIV — Red clearance is low, and while Violet is high.
    (taken from Paranoia RPG clearance levels)
     
    Disobeying someone of higher clearance is, of course, punishable by death anyways...
     
    FORMs
    Assigned Equipment Loss / Damage Report
    Briefing / Feedbaq
    Citizen Asset Tracking Form
    Clearance of Display
    Clearance of Passage
    Clearance of Research

  5. I'd give them a "hot line" that they can give to a person and be like "call that number" then the acolytes wait a few minutes later said "person" is all pale and scared and simply says "you may pass" LOL

    Ohh P.S. tell them that "they the acolytes" are not allowed to listen or call that number themselves and if they do there will be consequnces - also whomever listens to it if asked "what did it say" - the target will be too scared to say - aka this adds drama / mystery... have fun

  6. On a side note > I think all the Max AGL values listed should be reduced by -10%

    I dont kno anyone who can backflip, tightrope walk, sneak around, etc - in armor - military guys can attest to > and most only wear a Kevlar vest - not counting more S.W.A.T.-esk kit like "full armor"...

    Being that this had a corporate hand in it > I'm willing to bet the original concept therein was meant for Astartes in their Power Armor > they got that black carapace bionic chest that patches directly into the suit - that's very different that armor you don't get to "plug into" > corporate aspect being flush **** out as soon and portable as possible including cutting corners (i.e. not playing attention to detail)

    Think about what the numbers mean > base 20 + 2D10 per stat (so is 40 "normal" human upper limit like say an Olympic Athlete?!)


  7. Soo recently in my campaign I had x2 players create (in two separate groups) Adeptus Administratum "types" which got me to thinking...

     

    Paperwork and You!

     

    So what exactly can a member of the Administratum do to you or moreover the NPCs that occupy your 40k campaign?

    One should factor in that at least for me and many other despite the RPG we enjoy a 33/33/33 split on activity (social, environmental, combat) > so is subject herein by no means is meant to "get rid of" of make an Admin character ineffectual when doing environmental & combat aspects of play...

    This subject focuses mainly on Narrative aspect of play tied to Social facets.

    When working with or within a notoriously complicated administrative hierarchy what can this special acolyte do?

     

    Audit: Taxes and Tithes seem to be a staple in 40k moreover the management of resources...

    This particular activity could conceivably cause wholesale ruin at its greatest extent (of course other eyes will be double checking the paperwork when tryin to figure out how that one past their office desks LOL).

    Record: This category of activity could feasibly encompass everything from Historic Archives of events to Facts & Figures related to all manner of governmental outlay such as Surveys (land, planet, etc.), Census Figures, Demographics, any and all manner of measurement or event that a governing body may want to recall.  

    I could see this ability being used to changed Records
    How those Records are applied are up to you

    Transfer: Movement of resources > from here we can speculate all manner of persons and things are moved all across the Imperium; the life blood of rule and how its applied - from food to armies moved via transfers.

    I could see a particularly "free-spirited" player making a transport of say "bolters" having to make a rendezvous in order to make a Requisition Test less problematic > of course there will be followup queries as to the "how and why" the bolters are now late to arrive to the front...

     

    Off of the top of my head this is the gist of what I recall - I'm sure Admin types especially Acolytes (who aren't newbies) can do more!

    What do you think - is there more these desk jockeys, librarians, and scribes can do?

    Let us know

  8. The following is what I use as a foundation for acolytes in a religious and crazy society that is 40k...

    This list was derived from the video game Darkest Dungeon - which had "downtime" mechanics for your "heroes" to partake in.

    So the idea is each "setting" or activity can alleviate Sanity gains...
    On top of which a crafty GM can then devise other activities maybe not tied to actual game mechanics but more to the RP aspect certain players clamor for?

    Cloister to me sounds like it has manuscripts, books, scroll, and the like > if I were a player looking to learning a new Lore Skill - that would be my catalyst of play (i.e. how it happened)...

    Without actually defining in stone what each location can do - its then open ended enough / flexible to scale - as all encompassing or narrow focused you choose to make each place.

    In the Core Book an acolyte can rid themselves of a Sanity Point for 100xp

    In my campaign I took this idea a step futher;

    Headquarters = 50 xp per Sanity Point removal
    Loved One = 25 xp per SP removal

    Now a headquarters can be lost via Subtly losses and just poor attention to details on the players part - so as good as this is it can be lost; and re-outfitting a new headquarters "yourselves" should be a challenge (think Endeavor from Rouge Trader) in and of itself...

    On the players start jumping world to world finding a sound headquarters may become problematic to non-existent!

    Loved Ones; perfect target for any GM worth their salt to target (just too easy) - but otherwise the concept here is > character falls in love or has a loved one they can confide with... (its a concept I believe taken from the Gumshoe System for COC).

  9. How did you come up with these two values in your example?

    Obligation 01 - 10 (01-03)
    Risk 08 - 13(n/a)

    I couldn't figure out how those were generated - moreover just to be clear...

     

    1 - 10 = a roll of 10 or Less on D100, right?

    8 - 13 = no idea mate > I'm in the dark on this

     

    I'd like to use this system in addition to the vanilla Requisition System > the way I look at it you can do various "things" in the Universe to get your kit...
