We could discuss it here but this way we get to surprise GauntZero.

 

Once I have a firm idea though I will share it here  :)

Regarding character:

I've been discussing it with dava (BTW, are we using our real names or forum Ids here?) and was thinking about a Hive Born member of the Adeptus Arbites, either a Seeker or, as almost everybody wants to play as one (yes, they are awesome), a warrior.

I see him as a gruff officer, one who has seen some of the worst humanity has to offer in the Hives. Your archetypal noir police officer, a tough as nail SOB, with a perpetual five-o-clock shade and a somewhat morbid, defeatist sense of humour.

As I don't know precisely what our GM is thinking about regarding the campaign, I left his origin very open ended, but I was thinking he got mixed up with the Inquisition in his last assignment, maybe after been sent to arrest a gang that proved to be a coven of Witches or Daemon worshippers. It all depends on what Ordos we're going with.

I see him as the last man standing of the squad sent to apprehend them, which got him drafted for service to the Inquisition.

I believe ColArana is still planning to participate. The Beta is no longer available for purchase and the terms of service prevent sharing of the Beta PDF over the internet, but I've been helping him create a character through PMs by sending him the relevant details.

 

I'm playing a Hive Imperial Guard Desperado -- he was forced to serve in a penal legion after being caught smuggling xenos artifacts, but was pressed into service as a (somewhat unwilling) Acolyte because of his talents and knowledge of xenos species and technology. He is good at sneaking and fighting with pistols, and he has good social skills and Fellowship. I was originally thinking of playing a Shrine Mechanicus Heirophant but I had a better background story for the Desperado (though I have both characters generated and could play the Heirophant if it would round out the party more effectively).

 

What characters do you guys plan to play?

wtf - I was gone for some hours and hell breaks out...

 

Good news though - more than glad to have you on board, SVS !

 

I will create 2 new threads.

 

This one here shall be used for offplay discussions.

 

One will be for posting your character sheets and will contain a template to use.

 

The other one will be for inplay.

If we get a good team together, it would be nice to manage to do a really long campaign with you guys...but that needs a lot of discipline.

Most PbP fail because after some time, discipline lacks.

 

Lets try to make this something ongoing.

 

Make yourselves ready for missions that endanger your bodies, minds and very souls...

 

I will be on your side, watching you and hoping for your success...but the enemies of mankind already started their murderous plots...

 

It is good that you are 4. You will need each other to survive.

 

Could you tell me which campaigns/published missions you already do know ?

Well, I have enough free time, particularly during weekday, to be available without problems, except once or twice a month when I'm out giving lectures. So, I'm game!

"Well, sir, I've been told that the only true fear is dying with your duty undone. (or some crap like that...)"

I've read a little about the Harlock (Haarlock?) trilogy and some parts of the first book of the Apostasy Gambit, as well as the first published DH adventures.

I suggest that we start in Askellon, even if not much is know so far about it.

 

We'll keep the start rather neutral to the sector so we remain flexible, if this is ok for you.

 

In my opinion, the Haarlock campaign is a great one, but too common already :(

 

One more thing I'd like to have, is that everyone has a proxy.

 

If someone knows that he will be absent for a longer time, the proxy is allowed to control the character of the absent person.

 

This helps to prevent lags (especially during combat).

 

 

How tests are declared:

 

If you use a skill on your own initiative, you declare that you do, including your % to succeed at a regular test, and put the roll in brakets, like:

 

I try to get his true intentions (Scrutiny 37 [roll 24]).

 

Depending on the difficulty, my reaction might be:

 

You are quite sure he is lying about this topic (Scrutiny 2 DoS).

 

If it is a test which is asked from me, I will roll it myself and will tell you the results (e.g. passive awareness or knowledge).

 

If I ask you about a certain test, like Scrutiny (-10), you should include the known modifier already into your post, like:

 

Scrutiny 37 (-10) [roll 24]

 

In general, please put modifiers in regular brackets )( and list every modifier on its own.

Everyone may roll for himself as long as I dont think you cheat.

 

If I start thinking someone cheats...he's as good as dead ;D

Well, you know, I'm just naturally lucky!

Very lucky.

(fudges roll with non-sanctioned TK, starts crying blood)

Oh, crap.

so far, my knowledge of askellon is limited very very much.

 

There is some little information about hive desoleum - thats where our campaign will start.

As long as details are not fixed for askellon though, there might be free elements integrated, including xenos species which are usually rather found in calixis or the koronus expanse.

Oh, wow. Went to bed for the night, woke up and this thread's really moved along!

 

Yes, by the way, I'm still in. Going to be running a Forgeworld Assassin with an IG Background. From the look of things I've just about finished him (got his Wounds, Fate Points, Starting Gear, Characteristics, Skills and Talents sorted out), just gotta add... whatever else there is to add. Like a name and a backstory, which I've already got some ideas. Haven't decided whether to focus him towards Close Combat or Ranged combat yet, but he's going to (hopefully) end up being a decent driver/pilot, with the ability to use technology extremely well.

If it happens, I'm leaning heavily on my shotgun. =)

Hey, a driver!

At least we're gonna be free of that awkward "ok, who can drive this sh*t?" moment!

If you want you can already start creating your character files in the other thread.

 

If something is still missing or added later on, it can be edited.
