An online Rogue Trader game

Recommended Posts

I wanted to see how much interest there might be in a fun, online based Rogue Trader game, one focused on chat running, likely skype.

I have a few ideas for plots and for giving players a fun time, but a lot will depend on what the characters/players want to do.

One other thing to note is that this will be based more on EU timezones then US ones, as that's where I'm based.  So, what interest do I have? :)

Regarding experience level, I'd go for rank 2-3 to give people chance to define and specialise their characters a little more.

Timezones are an issue, yeah.  Can you tell me what days of the week are best for you, and what times (in UTC) you can manage?  I'll try to set a good date and time for us all based on that.

I would prefer 3-4 players for the game, with 3 of you already showing interest, and I'd like a PC as the Rogue Trader (but I'm flexible enough to let you be the warrant holder, without taking the actual RT career).  If the Rogue Trader does use another career, it'll shape the ship and game differently, but we can settle that when the time comes. :)

I'd prefer to play a navigator or tech-priest (genetor).  Though anything else i don't mind either.  

I've no problems being a warrant-holder.  Or to take the RT career if nobody else wants to hold the warrant.

I'm in UTC+1 (winter) or +2 (summer), in belgium to be exact.  Best days of the week for me are fridayevening - sunday afternoon.  If it's during the week itself then i'm only home at 7 pm (away at 6 am), so i can't before that.

 I'd be interested, provided the games weren't on Friday/Sat. I think I'd like a Voidmaster, but if no one else wants to be the RT, I'd be quite willing to play that type of character.

Let's see, availability...

Monday to Saturday any time as long as it wraps up by midnight UTC, and Sunday any time.

I suppose there is an advantage to being earlier then the rest of you - even if I have a party planned every friday evening, we'll be done by the time I have to go to it.

Hello I'm also intersted in such development of game. I'm in UTC/GMT +1h time zone I'm from Poland. I could play on friday's and saturday's(on Sunday i'm myself a GM), no problems with night shifts. And the characters, should they be created all acordingly to the rules (on rank 2-3 10,000-12,500xp)? Or would it be an epic story telling with "us" as the antagonists of the adventure. I can play RT, Missionary, TechPriest (specialized as Iron Priest or Artistan), Navigator, Astropath (mutant). Not keen on Arch-militant or Seneschal. And since we would be taking high advanced characters wold we be restricted to normal limitations of Origin Path. Very interested in playing via internet tell me if this offer is still open and what way of communication will it get.

Not to mention skype names so we can get into contact with each other!

As a side note, I'd love to use a Sanctioned Psyker instead of an Astropath. I find both Minor Powers and the fact that the Disciplines are more varied to put the Career in higher esteem for me.

Oki, this is sounding good so far.  :)

Thursday is sounding like the best choice for everyone to overlap in timezones.  From the look of things, would 8pm-midnight UTC work for all you folks?  The first meeting would likely be sorting out character, dynasty and ship creation.

The characters everyone wants to play should be workable enough as a group, to cover all the main angles. :)  BangBangTequila, I'm fine with a Sanctioned pysker, though I'm not too sure how it'll scale up tp RT level, but the games are meant to be interchangable, so it shouldn't be an issue.  I'd need to brush up on the DH psyker rules there.

 If you hold the first meeting this Thursday, I will be unable to attend. I happen to be a resident of the USA and we tend to have a rather big celebration on the 24th of November ;-).

I'll add you on Skype and send you the basic background info and the like so you can share it with everyone.

Note that it is only this week that I'd have an issue with Thursday. If we did it tomorrow I could attend.
