KEEP AN EYE ON THIS PAGE. I WILL UPDATE IT REGULARLY.


COMING TO #notes SOMETIMES IS RECOMMENDED FOR QUESTIONS/REQUESTS/ETC

This is an ongoing thing, as I plot shit out in my head/#notes/napkins

LEOPARDBEAR IS CO-GM, SO SHIT IS REAL GAIZ.

Neither GM is a total 40k nerd, so don't nitpick over canon.

Premise: Individual histories. Game will take place on an Imperial World at the fringe of Imperial space.

GMPC: Inquisitor Ryotarou Dojima. Ordo Malleus.

You'll start out weak. You'll get stronger. Questions?
Character Creation:

Available races for creation atm: Ork, Eldar, Terran (including subgroups), Chaos (maybe, you'd have to be AWESOME), Dark Eldar, or really, you can propose anything.

STATS: (some taken from Necromunda rules) YOU HAVE 23 STAT POINTS TO DISTRIBUTE. Stat maximum is 5 for any given stat for character creation. When you submit your stats to me, your stats will be altered by racial bonuses.

Weapon Skill (WS): Weapon Skill is a measure of close combat ability – how good the person is at hand-to-hand fighting. WS also effects draw and ready speed. Weapon skill also effects how well you fight in melee with a gun. An average value is 3.

Ballistic Skill (BS): Ballistic Skill shows how good a shot the individual is. When you shoot a gun the chance of hitting a target depends upon your Ballistic Skill. An average score is 3. BS also affects draw and aim speed.

Strength (S): Strength simply shows how strong a person is! Strength is especially important when you fight hand-to-hand combat because the stronger you are the harder you can hit or thrust. Strength will also affect weapon usage based on size/weight/etc. A Strength value of 3 is about average.

Toughness (T): Toughness is a measure of how easily an individual can withstand a hit from a weapon or a blow from a club, hand weapon or fist. The tougher you are the harder you are to wound or kill. An average value is 3.

Agility (A): Agility measures how fast an individual can move and their ability to dodge. Also affects your ability to maneuver the environment. AKA, climbing walls, jumping, rolling, etc. Armor and injuries will affect this value. An average value is 3.

Psychic Power (P): Psychic Power measures how powerful one's psychic abilities/attacks are. Being particularly skilled in a particular attack or ability requires specialization. Psychic Power also plays a roll in your damage resistance and ability to withstand psychic attacks and abilities. An average value is 0.

Willpower (W): Willpower is a measure of your psychic 'stamina'. Different uses of psychic power will use different amounts of Willpower. Willpower also factors into your ability to resist psychic abilities and attacks. An average value is 1.

PERKS ARE AVAILABLE. You have 5 Perk points. You ask me for a perk, I tell you how much it costs. IT IS ARBITRARY. Perks can be abilities, stats, history, connections, weapons, etc. BE CREATIVE, FUCKERS. Additional perk points will generally only be given out in exchange for sexual favors or doing something particularly awesome IC.

Stats or equipment will be granted as spoils of war. It's also possible you won't get ANYTHING from fights. Weapons and other equipment will also be available through other means in the RP.

EXTRA NOTE: Psykers beware overusing your powers...

EQUIPMENT: Many weapons in the RP are here: http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Weapons_of_the_Imperium
Some of the listed weapons are not available, some will become available later. Advanced weapons can be acquired through perk points.
The badass melee weapons? Yeah, don't expect to be able to get those. As you progress through the story, advanced weapons will cost fewer perk points.

WEAPONS CAN MALFUNCTION, JAM, OVERHEAT, AND EXPLODE. CHOOSE WISELY.

Also, I'm considering adding a luck stat for every character.

What is the "power variation" we are supposed to stay within?

What is too much for example? Grey Knights are out, I presume? Force Commander level? Or just "standard BATTLE BRUTHA" Tactical Marine-level?

Grey Knights aren't completely out of the question. But expect to have penalties if you go that route.

How large a squad? Depending on the squad equipment/personal equipment, I can see a decent librarian (or a chaplain or a FC) wiping out a smaller squad pretty easily.

Or are we talking "a squad with Leman Russ and Basilisk support"?

I'm talking a squad of GUARDSMEN with some specialized equipment. Heavy weapons, demolitions, and so on.

John was a space marine for fourteen years. When he was young he watched the spaceships and he said to dad "I want to be on the ships daddy."
Dad said "No! You will BE KILL BY DAEMONS"
There was a time when he believed him. Then as he got oldered he stopped. But now in the space station base of the Imperial World he knew there were daemons.
"This is Joson" the radio crackered. "You must fight the daemons!"
So John gotted his palsma rifle and blew up the wall.
"HE GOING TO KILL US" said the daemons
"I will shoot at him" said the cyberdaemon and he fired the rocket missiles. John plasmaed at him and tried to blew him up. But then the ceiling fell and they were trapped and not able to kill.
"No! I must kill the daemons" he shouted
The radio said "No, John. You are the daemons"
And then John was a Khornate Warlord.
Likes: Blood, Skulls
Dislikes: Anything with huge guts

McHat
"GIVE ME YOUR HAT"
Age: 845
Class: Slaaneshi Warlord
Backstory:
McHat was a normal shop clerk at a hat store, when he found a Chaos Sigil under the counder. He touched it and was POSSESSED BY DAEMONS, going on an acid trip and getting a case of derp-face for 100 years. Then he got better and became obsessed with hats.
Likes: Hats
Dislikes: Non-hats

"=)"
Age: 1000
Class: Nurglite Warlord
Backstory:

Their armor is also also automated on top of the various servos that enhance their physical abilities further.

BUT YOU'RE RIGHT! GLOBAL NERF, DOWN TO 23 STAT POINTS.

Maybe it would be better to keep "solo characters" stats higher then the "squad characters" stats?

Because right now, getting a squad means that you get 1 "high-stat" character and X "average" characters (which is only 3 points lower then a "main" character) and more hands to use more firepower (multiple Heavy Weapons, etc). Compared to just one "main" character (if you choose to go down that route).

There should be some kind of benefit in playing a solo character, no?

Somebody's thinking of ditching their squad.

Well yeah. :P

Well, this is besides the fact that ATM, a IG Squad would completely curbstomp a Space Marine.

Not really. Space Marine armor is amazing shit.

Not unless you roll more 1's than binary. Or if your oppponent uses plasma/fusion guns, bright lances, meltaguns, multi-meltas, melta bombs, rokkit launchas, tankbustas, Power Weapons, Lascannons, Krak Missiles, Hellguns/Hotshot Lasguns, Nemesis Force Weapons, Fire Pikes, D-Cannons, Prism Lances, etc... XP


Personally, I think all Factions should have their specific stat point values and bonuses/modifiers, kinda like in Fate where each Servant has different allotted stat values.

You're supposed to be above average. Average in 40k means dead.

BUT YOU'RE RIGHT! GLOBAL NERF, DOWN TO 23 STAT POINTS.

Way to go Fish

And this is why you don't point out things that make you stronger than you should.

Reminds me of a rather infamous passage in Gaunt's Ghosts where a Guardsman was handling an autocannon like the Heavy Weapons Guy handles Sasha, only better. Average in 40k is surprisingly a lot higher than RL average, though that still doesn't save you from Redshirt Cannon Fodder status.

Gaunt's Ghosts are arc 2 boss tier. Each of them. Alone.

As for each type of faction, and thus each PC, basically, getting stat bonuses... it'll be hard to do without seriously raising the stat cap and thus nerfing everyone. I can do it, though. Eventually.

I might even actually do that.

Well, each faction has its own unique "perks" that makes them balanced in their own way.



IG bring numbers and a lot of armored & heavy weapons support (which is why they're actually a high/top tier army on tabletop)

Eldar boast high AP & high mobility along with psyker spam.

Orkz have more numberz, melee, and dakka.

Necrons DO NOT stay down and keep auto-rezzing.

SPESS MEHREENS have armor and stronger, more versatile individual soldiers, and each chapter brings its own unique perks/playstyles.

Chaos MEHREENS are similar to their loyalist counterparts, in addition to bringing daemon/Warp shenanigans.

Exactly. Orkz I'm not worried about, I have planz for them. Necrons too. I have some ideas, but I'll need to confer with Leo.

Would those plans happen to involve Lolicron (http://1d4chan.org/images/d/d1/Lolicron08.jpg)? :D

Hmm... I think I will abstain of going ahead with the character until things are more clear, though. That is, waiting for the character creation to be complete before doing it xD.

A question, though.

Which is the basic gear Morm and me would start as members of the Blood Angels without any perk usage for equipment?

SeiKeo
October 5th, 2011, 05:27 PM
Speesh Mehrine Armor, and probably one ranged weapon, one melee, and one sidearm? Neir, that sound right?

Neir

Ceramite Power Armor, a chainsword, and a bolt pistol. I will, however, allow you to change your equipment to a regular sword and a Bolter for 0 perk points.

DB-L

I thought Chainswords were just counted as standard Close Combat Weapons along with most other non-power weapons?

Well, in standard fluff: Tactical Marines are normally issued a bolter & combat blade (huge knife/bayonet) with the option of taking frag grenades at a slight extra cost. Assault Marines are typically issued a bolt pistol, Close Combat Weapon (usually chainsword), Jump Packs, & frag grenades, though Assault Marines are more costly per unit than Tactical Marines. Of course, they all get standard Power Armor.


I don't even wanna think of how we're gonna balance Devastators. Heavy Weapons are standard issue for them. :/
