Deathwatch Play By Post

60 posts in this topic

I was torn from either picking DA or Imp fists. Or perhaps a second founding from either.. something with a little bit of easy going flavor. Seems like most brothers of the helix seem out of the "zone" and not as edgy.

 I'm not entirely sure on which Specialty, but I'm jumping between Techmarine, Tactical Marine (more a scout/long-range build), Devastator or Librarian. As a Space Wolf, since that's the only Chapter I really know a lot about and could pull off ^^;; More interested in a Techmarine or Librarian, but if people already want those roles, I'll happily play something else.

I'm a bit rusty in general at GMing (trying to get back into the swing of things actually) and have never GM'd PbP but I could give it a shot if you are looking for someone.

So here is where we currently stand:
 

GM

Karmadef

 

Players

Jer

 

 

Gurkhal

Nalerenn

Ygnar

 

Swampdog

 

Drace

 

Looks like we have gotten ourselves a fine group!

Time to find a place to host this and go from there?

 Looks good to me, pretty excited a spot was open. Can take weeks to find a pbp game sometimes.  As for where to host it, I'd say either PBPHouse javascript:void(0);/*1302880747023*/ or Nerdbound javascript:void(0);/*1302880723937*/.

PbpHouse has a nicely streamlined forum setting, making it ridiculously easy to navigate, but you have to register and wait for a moderator to approve you (to weed out bots and the like) or just email all the admins again and again.  Nerdbound has a built in dice roller (never used it, but supposedly good) and you don't have to get admin approved.

I'd suggest Nerdbound.

Gurkhal and I are in a game there as well so that will be handy.

Plus Karmadef can use the existing game there as a resource as well. It can be handy to have other games as examples for DM's that aren't steeped in experience. I know they help me!

 Sounds good to me, will post up when there is a topic :).  Also, Karmadef, is this your first PBP or just first DMing?

I'm signed up over there as well. Hoever I couldnt use "Jer" over there so I used "Eighteez". Sorry for any confusion.

 Over there as Drace.

So what are we looking to do for character creation? All rolls, Build Point for stats and dice for everything else? Are we going to use the extra rules for armour marks, armour history etc from RoB?

Also, planning to play a DA or Successor (Probably a Consencrator) chapter Devastator. If someone else wants to play a devastator, I can easily step aside and play a different class.

I'm fine with whatever the GM wants.

I'd prefer to keep it "by the book" since I am new to the game.

It's my first PBP, although I have GM'd a few (lol) games before, Dark Heresy,DnD,WoD,nWoD and other systems, the game thats up there at the minute is quite helpful, if you have RoB feel free to use that for Armour mark creation, succesor chapters that are presented in that book are good to go aswell, if someone can link my another Chapter/Succesor that had a decent set of rules I wouldn't be adverse to allowing it. I'd like a good split of roles aswell, we actually have enough to cover all the bases aswell which is cool with everyone.

I would usually roll stats for PnP but I think point build works better for this type of setting, less dice rolling means life = easier? So thats 100 points to spend from base 30 and not spending more than 20 per characteristic. Do you guys have any type of scenario you would like to play in particular? I have The Emporer Protects which I can run if you wish? If not I can sort something else out.

 I'm down with whatever you want to play, and got a character nearly down, once there is a forum will post it up and do the rolls for fate, wounds, history and armour type (either Heresy or Corvus due to chapter) etc.

So going with a Consecrator Devastator with a suit of extraordinary relic armour (as per the consecrator charcrea).

I'm there as Ygnar, so what's the word on custom chapters? I'm thinking a modified Raven Guard from Dark Reign, the Raven Nightmare. If not then I'll go with a Flesh Tearer assault marine

I was thinking about going with an Iron Snakes Apothecary. (The chapter has a ton to spare as they are attached at the squad level and not the company). They have no clear founding line, however they do count Roboute Guilliman as their line host. If the GM would not be opposed, I would use the Ultramarines as the chapter rules set.

 The Raven Nightmare would mostly play the same, though I would take out the Hatred Orks, and the redundant concealment, and silent move. I was planning on making them the "avengers" for the dropsite massacre (it's a secret), so I was hoping to replace them with Hatred (Iron Warriors, Word Bearers, Night Lords, Alpha Legion) respectively. If you think this is too much, then as long as you let me have at least the Iron Warriors I will be good. 

And Swampdowg, there is an Iron Snakes build, javascript:void(0);/*1302973287367*/, it's missing some pieces, but if you go with the Ultramarine founding you can just use those to fill in the blanks.

Thanks for the link, I will go with my 2nd choice chapter, Disciples of Caliban. Ill wait for some one to post the char sheet so I can see what format we are going with, then I will post mine up.

Hatred(Iron Warriors) works fine with me, and maybe just changing the Silent Move and Concealment to +10 if you don't think thats to game breaking?
