You know you're playing Rogue Trader when…

Recommended Posts

 

 Landraider

 

Can I have the adress of this particular store?

 

But of course, and what a convenient store it is! All one has to do is declare a minor crusade to recover artifact X and relay that you have found a lovely stash of Great crusade relics bearing a white omega symbol. Shortly after you should be contacted by the kind, if a bit annoying, store owners and a deal can be made. Either the kind dears die standing like all good soldiers of the emperor do, or they help you recover this artifact which you let them keep for a landraider.

 

(For the former its best taken with the bodies of its former crew inside as the store owners will reward you for recovering them. As for the Latter well... lets just say a can of paint, rogue trader levels of archeotech, and an ork freebooter promised a fight can do diplomatic wonders.)

I think your RT has a crush on your techpriest then :P

 

-When there's nothing wrong with using all of a rich world's income to mass produce temples to the emperor- the kind that you can drop from orbit on top of the temples originally standing on the planet.

You mean you haven't trade marked the idea and offered to sell said drop-able temples to the Ecclesiarchy yet? Hell, if you play your cards right they would happily compensate the world your making these temples on so they can keep going without issue. You're doing the Emperors work **** it! That sounds like something you can get a tax cut on.

I belive it's actually in one of the books, so the idea of drop temples isn't ours. And it's technically our own ecclesiarchal world that's mass-producing them :P

 

Either way, I'm pretty confident the idea of "trademark" is heretical. ^^

My group is taking a bit of a break after a fairly successful campaign. Their high point is their sudden but inevitable betrayal of the Tau. One smarmy Ethereal decided that it would be great to have a hidden base near the Achilus Crusade's supply lines. Of course, they were expecting betrayal, but due to some good RPing they managed to secure help in the form of Orks. 

 

Technically, all my group did was board the Tau cruiser to help save their ally from the rampaging Orks. 

 

The dynasty is now in a position where the Orks that landed on the planet are grateful for the chance to fight on the ground against the blueskins. The Tau, thanks to the players' initiatives, are being supplied by the dynasty's flagship which is making supply runs and skimming more than a little bit off the top. The Mechanicus is loving the chance to experiment with Tau tech, and of course looking into the effects of the Tau without any Ethereals at all.

 

Oh, and the Orks are paying for food and guns and so on with raw materials. It's even being spun to the Crusade as a ground war against the Tau, which will open up some more resources for the dynasty. Which of course will be redirected to secure their colonies. 

 

Honestly, I was impressed. It took a lot of RPing, really off the rails travelling, and not a little bit of good dice rolling to get everyone seemingly indebted to the Strom Dynasty while killing each other.

 

I mean, it won't last, I am their GM after all. But it's a nice accomplishment all the same.

When thru warp travel shinagins, convuluted family lines the rouge trader is the agrivated party, the agrivator, and a neutral paty to the same blood feud.

Dispite this the admistratium still requires him to settle accounts with himself, while also being an impartial witness.

He dose, and manges to make a profit of of the intrest he is owed to himself.

 

This is just another tuesday for the senishal.

When the Enginseer thinks it's a wonderful Idea to download the conciousness of a heretical tech priest into his head and use it's forbidden knowledge to wake up a battalion of Iron Men because the Rogue Trader likes the idea of a robot army at his command.

...Dying from blood lose, the AM pulls the pin on a vortex grenade destroying the bridge and banishing Magnus The Red back to the warp. Thirty seconds later an Ark Mechanicus warps in system and the RT gets contacted on the vox hearing the AM say "Captain I got you a new ship".

When your (female) Arch-Militant is more or less a psychotic version of Kim Possible.

 

Is that "can be described roughly as Kim Possible, but psychotic", or "essentially a version of Kim Possible, but am unsure of the relative degree of psychosis"?

Me thinks the first one, but not entirely sure on the difference between the two. Care to explain?

The second acknowledges that both the character and Kim Possible are psychotic, but that it is unclear which is most psychotic...

Your players board an allies hulked ship in an attempt to salvage, loot their most important possession to return to the beset RT, upon feeling a sense of danger, leave the ship and use murder servitors to destroy whatever it was, wrecking the bridge.

 

And the other RT is ok with it because w/e.
