  1. For the type of game it is, it handles DT as well as it can, but there are relatively long periods of time when a player isn't doing anything. In games up to 6 players, this DT is fine, it's long enough for players to consider their next moves and wait for their turn to use a secondary on a strategy card, but at 7-8 players, it becomes tediously long. Your mileage may vary.
  2. Seconded. Did that once too, never again. As someone who enjoys playing the long version of twilight imperium with the higher VP threshold, I understand where you're coming from but there is good long and bad long. Longer does not necessarily mean more epic. Once you get to 7-8 players , TI3 really groans under its own weight. The already considerable downtime (which honestly I don't normally have a problem with) is a little too much with more than 6 people, also, you don't really interact with the extra players. I can't remember if the extra rings grants more resources per player given the extra player count, but generally speaking, more resources per player also leads to a more stagnant game. If I ever had 8 players willing to play TI3 again, I'd play two seperate 4 player games, with the long VP track if people wanted extra length. You'd end up interacting with the game a lot more.
  3. I'm excited that with the imminent splat-book, we'll finally be getting the Android RPG a lot of us have been asking for, for quite some time now! I'm also interested in converting the 40kRPGs into Genesys but for the time being, I think my first try will be a Modern Day, Zombie Apocalypse setting similar to the End of the World book. My current gaming associates have only just got into boardgames and have never done RPGs, so an instantly relatable one shot of a well liked (if, overused to the rest of us) genre should do nicely.
  4. We're going incredibly strongly over on our discord server/R4H. Hopefully I'll see you there, if not, I hope you're able to keep playing these great games!
  5. Hi all, As we all know, we are mere weeks away from the final closure of this license. We've been largely successful at relocating the community and it's time to let the last of those who haven't heard about where we're hanging out to come join us. Whilst we've been using Roll for Heresy to upload the multitude of homebrew content created by many of our members, we've mainly been using our Discord server to keep in touch. It's very busy and it's active across most time zones. If you haven't used Discord already, you can access it via your internet browser with no need to download the PC or mobile app, however doing so gives you access to even more features such as voice chat. Come join us and help us keep the game alive and purging heretics well into the grim darkness of the far future! All the best, Gregor

  11. Heck what could a rogue trader get that a chaos god would even want? His or her's soul. Possibly their first born. The usual...
  12. Your domain has been added! tried to PM you but cannot...could just be I'm waking up still.
  13. I just tried to register at RFH but it told me I can't due to email domain. Don't know what's wrong with @t-online.de... Alex Ah ha! Thanks for the headsup. This was an issue that was fixed before the site went down,looks like the mirror doesn't include that fix. I'll ping the site creator about it and get it sorted.
  14. Thanks AK, I appreciate the offer and will look into doing that. At some point if you ever get back into running 40k games, please come pay us a visit and tell us all about it
  15. Done and done. Let's make sure those good folks are also using R4H!
  16. Hi Alex, Your blog looks great. I'm part of a community that is trying to port everyone, across all 40kRPG systems over to Roll for Heresy so we can keep the community together. Your stuff is just the kind of content we'd like to host over there as well as have you join us on our forums. The forums look a bit quiet at the moment, they were busier but over Christmas the site unexpectedly got taken down and the creator only had an older mirror to restore, so we're in the process of getting everybody back. Please come join us so we can help keep these awesome games alive! As to your post, I can't comment as 40kRPGs are the only pen and paper RPGs I play. What I will say though is that the world needs these games All the best, Gregor
  17. I'm back from my holidays and I'll (finally) be launching my Forgotten Gods campaign this month so I'll be living and breathing 40kRPG again. The license ends next month between FFG and GW if I remember correctly, lets hope we get the remaining folks over to R4H! I've resubbed there as my account was one of those lost.
  18. Normally when you suffer damage/horror, you receive the cards from the respective decks faceup, when you receive them facedown, you still take them from the deck. No lucking out I'm afraid.
  19. Yeah the action card is called Full Deployment I believe, its a security card.
  20. Played it twice over new years eve- in one word: amazing. OP's description that this is BSG 2.0 is spot on and the rules are incredibly tight. It's a great experience and I can't wait to play much, much more. Seriously, my only negative with this game is that I wish the plastic Prisec units were a different colour (maybe a light grey) to make it easier to differentiate them on the board from human first and orgcrime...that's it.
  21. This isn't a review as such, but I wanted to post a thread in support of this fun little game. I ignored this game for a while because it looks (and admittedly is) very similar to the game 'boxes' you can play for free (and probably did whilst procrastinating at school) with nothing more than a pen and sheet of paper. However, the program stack (deck of cards) which limits the moves you can actually do as well as each runner's unique selection of programs combined with the production value actually make this a very fun and quick time burner. The game is quick, fun and cheap and in my opinion, worth picking up if you have some cash burning a hole in your pocket- it makes for a nice light game which fills the gap nicely between larger, more epic games on a game day. The only caveat is that you need 3-4 players to enjoy it- the game just doesn't work well with 2 people. The board feels far too open and it's very easy for the two players to cancel each other's move if certain cards come out. All in all, I recommend this. I played a friend's copy over Christmas multiple times with two and four players. I'll look into picking up a copy for myself when I head home after the holidays.
  22. Righto, heard back from the site creator. Not the best news but the situation is understandable. Looks like we need to create new accounts.
  23. There's nothing on the upcoming page but fear not, this is one of their most popular games. Give it a couple of months and it should be reprinted, the Arkham Files games don't tend to stay out of print for long.
  24. This would be excellent! OP's original suggestions are all good, especially the MU one. I never played much of the CoC LCG as it never really clicked with me (it was a good game but I played it after Netrunner which I much preferred), but I remember one of the expansions had art work detailing some kind of masquerade ball in Venice with deep ones swimming in the canals. I'd love to see some tiles and scenarios covering this.
  25. That paint job really helps salvage the zombie miniature which is not the greatest of sculpts. Great Job!
