    Bizzarre character contest.

    Or maybe if he had a necron tessaract that he could control and that was big enough to hold massive factotums, stasis vaults, labratoriums, etc. He could have kept all this secret on mars if that's how a necron tessaract works.

    Do I even wanna know how they explain a tech priest living 10000 years and doing all this in secret on mars? Building a new marine army complete with vehicles, ships, etc. Holy deus ex, batman!!!

    Insane inquisitors.

    I just kinda wanted to emphasize a point here to players and GMs: basically everyone in the 40k universe is insane. I mean the books make some characters look like great guys. Roboute Guilleman, Gregor Eisenhorn, Ihram Gaunt, they all seem reasonable and good. But if I heard you say you believed in freedom, BLAM! Really everyone in 40k is insane be today's standards. I like to remind people of that now and then. I make that a factor in 40k RPGs.

    You know you're playing Dark Heresy when....

    You desperately seek information on a daemonic cult, execute any and all loyal citizens who have seen any and give it to you for witnessing daemonic activity, then wonder why it's so hard to get anyone to give your information

    Problem with Tyranids synapse

    Call in a lance strike to kill the bugs on the surface with a one shot, the dig the leader out of his hole after his minions have been obliterated from orbit. Another counter to this might be to get a fix on the bigbug's location and have yourself teleported into his hideyhole. Oopsie! Now his minions can't help him.

    So in a hundred years bubbadon hasn't conquered earth, no surprise. But the tyranids and necrons aren't as incompetent as abmoron, what have they Been doing in the ensuing century? Likewise the one competent race in the 40k universe , the tau, I would hope they had made some advances in ten decades. Speaking of marines I was wondering if anyone tried making untouchables into marines. I'd imagine they'd be a huge pain to psy- heavy forces. Or does the imperium use all its nulls for culexes assassins?

    Insane inquisitors.

    I looked at some of the bits in Ascension about a PC becoming an inquisitor and noticed it seems to be impossible to become an inquisitor without racking up a few insanity points from the various rites and rituals you must pass thru. Also it seems like becoming even an interrogator has some near mandatory insanity points accumulation. So, on average about how many insanity points should a new inquisitor have? Anyone ever work that out?

    Problem with Tyranids synapse

    ypur gm is not playing right. Tyranids have no individual fear of death and as a rule synapse creature should not hide. If he insists on these tactics then max out on long ranged firepower, stay at the edge of effective range and pick the nids off with long range fire because their synapse creature is 'anchoring' them by staying in a hole. other tricks might be to take a librarian with offensive psyker powers and long range detection abilities, he might be able to attack the synapse creature even underground. Also just tell your gm he's not making the game fun for you.

    Ahhhh, that trollock thendoctor was harassing me constantly then running hurt to an idiot mod when a slapped him, then that idiot mod started hitting me with warnings while ignoring his constant snipes at me. But now there's an ignore user fiction and I put both the troll and the moron on it.

    Guy, without special characters the 40k universe is a bunch of miserable psychpoaths running around looking for excuses to murder people. The snowflakes are the only people worth role playing or writing stores about. As long as they're not fething ridiculous like angry marines or pretty marines or aren't grossly OP then make all the snowflakes you want.

    Hmm, an ogryn of unusual base intelligence who responded very well to the bonehead treatment.... I could see him serving an inquisitor who is gradually fading in ability with age, and who comes to rely on him more and more until he becomes an inquisitor in all but name.

    Gambling

    In some novels a space marine was willing to play 'regicide' to pass time during a warp trip. so I guess they could play cards. just buy it like another skill.

    Pre Heresy Space Marines

    BTW, to put it in more modern terms, i wonder if any of the tiger claws remained loyal to the imperium and what happened to them if they escaped badab and made it into imperial space. gave vital data on the traitor chapter to the imperium and were absolved? One hopes.

    Pre Heresy Space Marines

    It's another one of those issues where the imperium buries the truth because it would be diofficult to deal with. The fact is some members of traitor legions did remain loyal and even became heroes of the imperium during the HH. Of course we can't let the mindless masses know this as they might begin to think there was some good on the 'other side' and that could lead to more heresy. Better to keep 'em ignorant of the truth.
