DH (2nd ed.) PbP game

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I'm looking for a couple (2) players for a PbP game of DH 2nd ed. (Hopefully this game will not be interrupted by personal matters as was the previous one!). I'm asking here instead of on the 2nd ed. forum since I'll be using the adventure at the back of the book, I think, and it's much less likely that people posting here would have read it. :)

 

So let me know if you're interested. I'll be playing up the horror aspects of the game, as is my taste.

I wouldn't be opposed to joining in, if only to try out the DH2 system, which I've been wanting to try more ever since getting the rulebook. So you could count me in.

 

I assume we'd be using the Point Buy system as detailed in the book?

No, I decided not to use point-but, because 1) it leads to min-maxing, 2) it conflicts with the "more or less normal people" feel for starting characters, and 3) because the range of starting stats is lower and character flexibility higher in DH2 than DH1 I feel it is less necessary (which is to say that it is relatively easy to bump a low stat to tolerable levels, and nobody starts out with a stat over 40 in any case).

 

On the other hand, I do let players reroll the whole batch of stats if they really don't like them (which one player has already done!).

 

Can you live with that?

I would assume I would actually need the 2nd ed rulebook 2 play. 

 

I can lend you mine tomorrow if you want to do this.

 

 

@OP: So we're actually rolling our stats and running on the honor system then?

 

Also, it sounds like you have some other players ready to go. Mind if I ask what their characters are like so I can better make mine to fit the group? No sense making an adept-like character well versed in knowledge and such if we already have one of those.

Poke around here http://rpol.net/game.cgi?gi=62407&date=1428250153 and see if you're interested; send me a request to join if so. It started out as a Vampire game but we decided to do DH2 instead. Don't read the adventure in the book please, but do read the fluff on the Askellon sector.

 

Though I tend to trust my players, there is a dice roller on the rpg.net website that we use, the results of which are visible, so cheating is impossible anyway. :)

 

Basically what I do to ensure that the group is rounded out is ask that no characters repeat each other in terms of Home World, Background, or Role. Meaning that each will be unique to a single character.

 

So far the characters in the groyp (and HW/B/R that are taken) are

 

Void Born --> Adepta Astra Telepathica --> Mystic

Hive World --> Imperial Guard --> Assassin

Highborn --> Outcast --> Desperado

 

And no Untouchables as there is a psyker in the group and think they would step on each other's toes. Most anything else is viable though.

 

Thanks for the interest!

Oh, I see. While I appreciate the notion of making sure every character has his/her niche, I think I might step down from this one. I've run a Forgeworld character in the past, didn't have much fun with it, and my only Feral World character concept involves an Imperial Guard background, which also seems to be excluded for my character.
