PART 2 - Characters

Arbitrator - aka Martin

Scum - A female in the party. The stereo-typical goddess. Don't let the discriminatory wording of the character class fool you. She is not only attractive but she is elegant, graceful, and quite savvy. Her upbringing was on the streets of a Hive World, in a clan of thieves. Her skills are quite well balanced, however; she does specialise in lethal combat with preferences of the blade over the gun. There is a certain magic to be had at besting your opponent in this fashion. Although she is not squeemish at the thought of killing another, she would rather incapacitate if at all possible. She is witty and charming. A bundle of fun for the whole family. One thing, her "family" is on the current look-out for her for something termed "a misappropriation of necessary mission supplies?". Electra comes to mind with this character.

Assassin - A redneck southerner. Tall and lanky. Loud and boisterous. He is grit. He's got skillz. He is all talk, but when it comes to business, he knows where its at. There is nothing between his laser sights and his prey. "My pappy would say ... " he is full of anecdotes and will recite them all, often repeatedly to emphasize any point, at anytime; he killed his "pa" and would tell you that story too. Keep in mind, he isn't a comical guy like the Scholar, but, he does from time-to-time, keep a light-hearted spirit in the party, until it gets serious. His skillsets are the atypical assassin styled ones minus acrobatics and other girly things. He will have lots of driving skills coz back at the ranch .... .

Psycher - aka Martin's creation. He is tough and mean. He is also a little fidgety and kinda creepy. Playing this pc will undoubtedly be a scary thing to do coz you will be fighting your own sanity as well as your foes. He is a wildcard but he can be an asset.

Alright, to all interested in playing my short W40k RPG campaign, I have set out some basic character personaes. If you are interested in the character please give me a response via this medium or email. I am not expecting it all to be filled but I am hoping to have at least 3 interested party members. I will send you the template for your perusal at that point. Of course, we can always change things if you wish. Also included will be a character profile that will be a little more involved - this will help explain why you have been picked up by the Inquisition.

This campaign will be a 2 session game approx 8 hours in length (4 hours a piece incl potty breaks and whatnot); this will also give us some standard boardgame time should we wish. The game mechanics are used throughout but I won't be going into the nitty-gritty. I am more interested in cohesion and story.

As for the story, I am set. All NPC's are thought up, most are drawn up, the storyline is hopefully intact and I am keeping my fingers crossed that you will like what I have in store for you.

Tell me when and if you are ready and we will set up a time.
Thanx for the read.

I'm game. I've been lurking a bit lately, but I'm not quite so busy as I was.

Unfortunately, I have no experience with the WH40KRPG, so little that I'm not sure what acronym to use. I'll look around for a set of quickstart rules.

Cheers,
John
Off Topic: I brought back some of my heavy gear stuff, and then forgot to tell anyone.

Welcome aboard. I am game to read anything if it is directed my way. I do have the southern army books. HG is still a game I want to try out.

As for W40k, you won't need to know any specifics. We will guide you along the way. Again, I am not into rules as much as a good story. The rules only shape possibilities and probabilities, nothing more nor less. The universe is is a veritable gold mine of opportunites. Do you know what kind of character you would like to be? Does one of these peeps catch your fancy? The schema/titles are a little deceiving and you should only read the personality and skill sets.

Perhaps the psyker?
This weekend I'll see what wikipedia has to say. I know the broad outlines of the setting, but not doubt the hivemind will provide more than enough detail. I've also downloaded a couple of promo pdfs from fantasy flight games, but haven't had a chance to read them.

Any idea when you want to play?

I am good to go more or less. We need a venue and at least one more player (3 + a GM would be grand). I was speaking with Martin the other day and the thought of a sleep-over at my place came up (actually I thunk it up). How would you be for that? It is close to your home ... reasonably, considering I am in Ujiie.
We can consider it as a gaming weekend in the not-so-distant future, for the future. :?

Sure. I've got a couple of things on weekends soon, but it shouldn't be a problem to schedule some time.

Thanks for inviting us all over.

Cheers

Haha! Yeah, it'd be a good combo. :)
I thought I'd check to see if Paul might be interested.

Playing the psyker? Fool, you've doomed us all!
Haha, I kid........ :lol:

But yes, colour me interested if you please. As long as I've free time for the agreed upon dates I'd like to be involved (sorry, I did not receive your email until recently).
I think your imperial guard fellow would probably be the most natural for me to play, if he's not already been nabbed. Time to bone up on the 'uplifting primer', methinks.
