[DH1] Some Q&A I had with a producer about The Inquisitor's Handbook (Questions 101-110)

Recommended Posts

101. What goes in to repairing a Rosarius? In terms of tests and difficulty not the description/fluff of repairing.
———— > Very Hard Tech-Use test. GM can make it much harder too, like it must be done by a Tech-Priest Magos or must be done on a Forge World where they have the sanctified items needed to do the repairs. Repairing one could even be a side quest.  
102. Does a Rosarius overloading's photon flash effect also hit the person wearing the Rosarius?
————— > No. 
103. What are the long term side effects of having a Psy Jammer in your head?
——— > I’d drip some insanity points on the user over the course of a campaign. But it could be a narrative thing though, that the GM and player work out. Maybe the PC keeps scratching his implant scar when he’s nervous, like a tell. 
104. For Psy-Trackers is it a Tech Use Test every time that you want to use the device? Or Tech Use to turn it on for say the scene and then you use it in conjunction for all of your Awareness (if you are looking for warp signatures)?
———— > Latter. Unless GM is feeling nasty :)
105. Did Erya Nephthys manage to kill any named/important inquisitors during her trap in the Tricorn Palace?
———— > It’s up to the GM about that. Maybe she killed the PCs’ Inquisitor! 
106. Question on time again, it states that in 777.M41 "The Treachery of Nephthys: Inquisitor Erya Nephthys, once the most promising of her generation, goes renegade and massacres a number of her peers in the very heart of the Tricorn Palace on Scintilla. The vilest of traitors, she attacks numerous other Imperial holdings and carves a bloody path cross the sector, prompting a blood hunt by the entire Ordos Calixis. She dies a third and final time at the hands of Witch Hunter Rykehuss and her ashes are interred in a sealed vault to insure her disposal is a permanent one”
However it is further expanded upon in The Blasphemy of Erya Nepthys "In response, the wrath of the Ordos was terrible to behold and, united in grief for the fallen and outrage at Erya’s crime, it acted with single and terrible purpose. The pursuit lasted for fifteen years”
So would you say that the 777 is the beginning (her attack on Tricorn) or the end (her seemingly final death)?
———— > Ditto. Whichever works best for the GM’s plans. 
107. Does Belacane manufacture Null Boxes would you say? Or at least did, when they had someone that knew what they were doing?
———— > Ditto again. If it’s not nailed down then the GM has freedom to work it however works best (heck, even if it’s nailed down the GM and players can/should always feel free to change things so they work best in the campaign). 
108. How much more visibility does an Icon of Holy Wrath give the bearer for the purposes of talents?
——— > I’d say it would be akin to the wearer glowing like they were in a spotlight. 
109. In what way is Topor different if an unreliable source makes it? The unreliableness of it.
——— > I’d say it either wears off sooner or the test to perform actions is Challenging (or easier) instead. GM’s call. 
110. It is mentioned that the last saint raised by the Synod of the Calixis Sector was over 200 years ago, but any word on who that was?
———— > Don’t think we established it, so up to the readers! :)
