You know you're playing Rogue Trader when…

Recommended Posts

Frankly, at this point I would expect something outrageous, like your Rogue Trader paying a ton of money or the Admech pulling strings to get the whole lot of them servitorized and assigned to the explorator as his/her personal gofers.

Well, they obviously don't have any brains, so there's no harm in servitorising them.

When you realize that your senechal is channeling Mr. Popo and your archmilatent would be a good stand-in for Vegeta Abridged. 

 

My Rogue Trader's seneschal channels Sir Humphrey Appleby.  

 

 

I've seriously considered tossing his ass out the airlock while in Warp.

No NO You can't do that to him, he worth way to much to you.  Besides if he does that to you, just think of what your enemies think of him!!! :rolleyes:

Thank you for reminding me of a great show :D:lol::P

 

The player that plays Hollister Gantry, the Seneschal, is able to do the kind of Humphrey Appleby doubletalk on the fly, and he cracks us up every time he does it.  He can do it so well that even I put on Jim Hacker's face, and say, "What?"  

 

He's saved our asses so many times, but at the same time he's been something of a thorn in my side.  I'd say Hollister is directly responsible for getting our meager starting Profit Factor of 22 up to 40.   During The Frozen Reaches of the Warpstorm Trilogy we went through, he ended up taking over the governorship of Damaris, even though I was trying to prop up the sitting governor because I felt we needed some unity on the planet in the face of the Ork invasion.  He exposed the coup on the sitting governor by the military commander, had the commander murdered, and then ended up making the governor sick to the point that he could no longer function.  I knew what was going on when I heard the military commander was dead, and I was about to chuck Hollister out the airlock, and he says,

 

"My lord-captain, there are several mitigating concomitant and extraordinary events that necessitated the temporary emergency measures which could not involve your direct interference in local conditions which may undermine certain blah-blah-blah blah and blah."  

 

I was like, "What?"

 

Hollister says, "Sir, I was merely doing what you, in fact, ordered me to do.  The governor isn't dead; he's merely indisposed and has appointed the most capable Lord-Captain in his stead."  

 

"Erm....Hollister?"  I said.  "You're a magnificent bastard."  

 

But, the thing is, if I do eventually toss his ass out of the airlock while in Warp, the forces of Chaos may make him a new Chaos God, or return him and say to me, "NOT COOL, MAN!"

I used to have a player in my Top Secret/SI game callsign Conman and he could make up that double and triple talk on the fly.  So much so that I made a rule, if I was drinking he couldn't talk.  :rolleyes:  So there be no spewage..  and you have to love a player who put that much into his PC

Even if they are a pain in the butt

That's probably good advice.  When "Hollister" does his thing, we can't help laughing because it's uncannily good.  I have my moments myself.  I run my character Lord-Captain Symon Wylde as a mix of Samuel L. Jackson (notably Jules Pitt from Pulp Fiction) and James T. Kirk, except Captain Wylde has YET to score with a woman even ONCE during our entire freakin campaign, thanks to the amazing and miraculous efforts of Hollister Gantry, because he doesn't want Wylde to have a bastard that might undermine the House of Wylde (Gantry is a House Operative).  Where Hollister may be a master of double-talk, I'm the master of the "Reason You Suck" and "Badass Boast" speech, and I think I get better and better the longer Wylde goes without sex.  I once got seven degrees of success on an Intimidate check against an Eldar Corsair captain, especially when I told him of our motto.  

 

The motto of the ship is "Sic gorgiamus allos subjectatos nunc."  Which translates as "We gladly feast on those who would subdue us."

When you decide to put a cogitator in your titan

 

When said Cogitator develops AI

 

When you decide to name the newly sentient titan Metroplex.

 

 

Actually...an imperator would be big enough.

 

BTw: Did you know that in the (japanese) anime series Transformers Zone, there was a Decepticon version of Metroplex? And that it was named... Metrotitan ?

No, I didn't know that. Also, even an Imperator wouldn't be big enough.

 

Imperator Titan: 330 feet

 

Metroplex: Just under 700!

I think that i may have the strangest story ever for this thread, or at least one that is up there with the weirdest. 

 

You know you're playing Rogue Trader when your Void Master becomes a gun.

 

Yes i said that. Long story short the Void Master was in a battle for his soul with a Halo Device and for the finale he was in his soul to remove it from him. I thought i had expected the ways he could end that little setup, turns out he decides to win his battle for his soul by throwing it into his favorite pistol.... 

 

I am happy that my player got creative, but now i am dealing with a player that has merged with the crankiest and most jealous machine spirit this side of the maw. The followup session will be fun.

So if his soul is in his pistol , who's wielding the pistol now? Must be weird if you're an arch militant and you are now shooting a gun with the soul of your boss in it.

 

Maybe kinda like this:

How come everything on this thread reminds me of transformers?

 

I'm sorry. please continue...

Well long story short, he has essentially become a Deamon Weapon. You know how warp BULLlSH*T has a tendency to merge organic tissue and inorganic matter? Like how chaos space marines have this tendency to merge with their armor or weapons? That is pretty much what has happened to him. He as the deamon weapon extended tendrils of brass into his old body and is not controlling it like a puppet. Furthermore his mindset is propably about as alien after he fused with the machine spirit as it would be if the halo device transformation finished, though in different ways.

 

I intend for him to be allowed to by the flesh is weak on the cheap and some custom integrated weapon talents. Though those talents would make him even more inhuman than he already is. The needs of his new form are also pretty inhuman, and much more along the lines of what a heavily modified Mechanicus priest would have, considering that before he had no implants it is going to be a wee bit creepy. 

 

And to cap it all off, an inquisitor was witness to the WHOLE process. The next session will be good.

 

PS. The Processional of the Damned is a VERY fun (in the Dwarf Fortress definition) location to have your players toy around in.

- "Maybe it would be easier to ask who here isn't secretly working for the Inquisition."  is said.

 

- "well I guess they aren't all bad." is said after finding out that the slavers that raided your colony turned the colonists into mindless servators.

 

- Your spymaster finds out that someone has been embezzling from the Rogue Trader's family accounts, so you launch covert war that causes several planetary governments to fall, only to find out that the Rogue Trader was embezzling from himself.

 

- "This may start a war with an Inquisitor." is uttered during a command meeting

 

- After find out that a crime syndicate is shaking down several planets you hunt them down, not to stop them but to take over their racket.

 

- "maybe we can trick the Imperial Navy into taking them out for us" is uttered at a command meeting

 

- hearing about peace talks between two warring families makes you nervous because you've been making good money supplying arms to both sides.

 

- "plausible deniability" is an important consideration.

 

- "do we have any options that don't involve genocide?" is said during a command meeting

 

- it is discovered that a species of ionic aliens have been attacking the RTs interests because the RTs uncle hunted them to near extinction over a century ago

 

- after following leads it is discovered that the aforementioned uncle was hunting the aliens because he found out that their "bio-energy" could be used as a form of ammunition for plasma weapons.  The response to this revelation is "OK, so how many of these aliens are still around?"

 

-  Common ground is found between the crew of the ship and barbarians on a planet after it is discovered that the barbarians worship a cyclonic torpedo.

When your rival Rogue Traders marvel at your golden and jewel encrusted toilet.  

 

Is it nicknamed "The Golden Throne"? :D

 

It's tempting to call it that, but that might be blasphemous.
