Yeah you won't actually die with it. I think it weighs about the same as flak armour, although obviously traps a lot less air, and you never have to do swim tests when you're not in any danger or under duress.

E: duress includes 'heavily burdened' and 15kg isn't quite enough

I need a suggestion for Ignatius' fourth item pick (I'm still assuming a dagger is a negligible item in terms of cost and availability). Also, do we have money? Do people even use money in 40k?

Money and finance in Dark Heresy 2 is rolled into your influence score. Influence when used to procure things is a measure of knowing the people who know a guy who has a thing you want and also your purchasing power. You don't track cash in hand directly. If you are in a position where you need to bribe a street urchin for info it's easier on the narrative to just assume you have the 40k equivalent of a $20-100 bill to pass them.

For your last free acquisition a photo-visor (night vision goggles) or a lascutter (a hand held welding torch from hell) could both be handy and useful in most any situation we could get in. If you want to lean in on having more non-lethal, stun grenades are common availability, maybe DJF will let you have a couple as a single acquisition.

Edit: It's totally not required but if you and AcidRonin both want to do a flavorpost like me, Who What Now, and thatbastardken have been doing that would help us gauge out how you're going to react in-character to our little cavalcade of misfits.

An auspex is more of a radar/tricorder than a computer. Think of it like the motion detector from Aliens or PKE meter from Ghostbusters. Regular quality ones can detect most forms of radiation (thermal, UV, electromagnetic) and is used to say "There are five signatures behind this door".

Photovisor sounds cool and appropriate. I'm hoping I can just buy or acquire some grenades, I'm not a fan of using a very limited number of requisition slots on consumable items.

Re: money abstraction, yeah I get that, I was just wondering what is used as currency in-universe? Like, is it Imperial Credits, and everyone in the whole Imperium uses them and they have a stable market value, or is it thousands of different local currencies, or both, or some other thing?

Re: character impressions, I'll probably do them but I don't really know whether our characters know one another yet or not, or how DJF was planning to have us get started. The three of you each took different tacks on that, which is cool and creative, but I was worrying that making those posts canonical could seriously contradict whatever DJF was planning on doing as our kickoff setup scenario thing.

So... DJF, do our characters know one another yet? If so, how much time have they spent together? Is it realistic that they'd be sent dossiers on each other, and if so, how much personal info would be in them?

It's a mix of the two leaning more towards the latter. Closest thing to a universal currency are "throne gelts", which are basically gold dubloons, but on a macro scale planetary tithes and such are given in lives, raw resources, and processed goods. In general things like coins, jewels, and stuff are better people who travel because they are more likely to be accepted all over versus things like bonds or bank notes which are pretty much worthless outside of the planets/systems they're made on.

I guess it'd be too much to ask for GW's content writers over the last 20 years to understand why fractional reserve fiat currency is infinitely superior to commodity-based currency, etc. etc. so whatever.

Inexplicable Humblebrag

it's generally thousands of different currencies but you won't go far wrong by referring to the values as Gelt or Thrones. the actual tender can be whatever you like, whether it's rare space-grown gemstones or chips of gold or paper money or great big ornate books.

you guys will have met a day or so before the game starts. you have not been sent dossiers, but as you're all inquisitorial agents, you all have different channels to pump for info. plus you've all got different skills, so what may be a first meeting for one of you may in fact be like the third time the other guy's spoken to you. do what you like with the first impressions, including keeping them entirely to yourself - it can be literally as you meet them for the first time, it can be your impressions on what you've found out about them, or it can be your opinion on their clothing choice. it's just if you post 'em it gives people a better aid to roleplaying with and at your character.


It also helps you with ammunition for intra-party investigations!!

This is an idea I've been kicking around to get the party to interact with each other - the basic idea is that you're not all mindless drones working for the Inquisition, you each have your own agendas. Each of you wants some arcane information or some meaningless concession from one of the other party members, and you're trying to get it at the same time as doing your usual Acolyte stuff.

This is not PVP, and no-one loses anything or gains any mechanical advantage other than what I'll cover off.

It's up to you to decide what you're trying to achieve, and you basically have almost complete narrative control over it - maybe you think your designated target knows something about a shipping disaster you lost a colleague in, maybe their fighting style looks like that of a guy whose trail you once lost and you think they might have some info on him. It might literally be as simple as you want to curry your target's good opinion. So as to not impose on other people's characters and backstory, they are fully within their rights to go "nope, that's not true" or "nope, don't have a clue, sorry" if you flat-out ask them something, but the point being is your character will learn something useful from this anyway.

Once per scene, at an appropriate juncture (i.e. not mid-combat), you can use whatever the hell skill you please to try and wrestle a nugget of intel out of your designated target. They can use whatever the hell skill they like to deflect your inquiry. It's basically an opposed skill test with none of the usual constraints on what you have to use. The winner gets +5 to their next test as a self-confidence bonus, the loser loses nothing at all. The instigator can get up to 50xp a pop depending on how effectively it's been woven into the narrative and whether or not they've used that skill for this purpose before.

You can do this up to four times with your target (i.e. after four scenes) before reaching resolution on whatever it is you're trying to accomplish; hopefully this has followed some sort of arc of successes and failures. You'll then get either +3 Insanity or +3 Corruption, and an increase of +3 Influence. Again, it is entirely up to you what the narrative reasoning behind this is - it might be that finding out what you were seeking has given you the resolve to make use of funding sources you otherwise couldn't bring yourself to accept, or maybe you've got all the info you need to mug that wealthy nobleman or whatever.

Chain of targets goes as follows, arrows denotes "wants something from": Gamma -> Ignatius -> Eadian -> Aperta -> Bulworth -> Gamma

Is that something you want to play around with, or do you think it'll draw attention from the main story?

Is that something you want to play around with, or do you think it'll draw attention from the main story?

I'm ok with having character specific B-Plots. I've been purposely writing my backstory in a way that one can integrate background elements into whatever side story you feel like doing for me. However, I don't think we should be extracting the B-plot threads from other players. There's an untold billions of people in the empire and pairing up the 5 people who all just happen to inadvertently have dirt on each other is just too convenient for my tastes.

We for the most part all have things in our character bios that can form up a character specific B-plot. The Space Mafia wants me dead and the faking of my death will only throw them off for so long (not to mention potential avenues for Brick Shithouse Man and Lucile to come back). Ignatius is basically a Naval deserter and may have some down the line consequences from that (turns out one of the ships doing the last stand survived and escaped, your distant cousin/uncle/whatever knows what you did or something of the sort). Eadian has some political enemy that wants him away from his convenient desk job to be killed on the field. Apertha's whole life is predicated on some mad science psuedo archaeotech that could come into suspicion even among his peers. Gamma is the only one I can't immediately pull a obvious B-plot out of and that's something that can be worked out before the game starts.

I like the idea. It doesn't necessarily mean you want a thing from another player, it could also be trying to curry a favor from them that would advance your character's B-plot as well.

as emphatically highlighted, it's because i want you guys to interact with each other.

i'm not interested in you each doing your own b-plots and serenading some npcs with your master-crafted backstories while the rest of the party look on adoringly from the sidelines. the idea is for your character to opportunistically realise "hey i can use these people who i have been thrown together with", and for you as a player to have to weave a separate thread into your narrative with the constraints of a) making it make sense and b) not dragging down the main plot

also who says the other players have dirt on you. do i need to put "you have almost complete narrative control" in larger font

I like it. My character has unfinished business, tragedies, problems, etc. in his background and he'd be motivated to try to resolve them (gradually, as opportunity presents) making use of whatever contacts he can find. The other party members are his first peer-level contacts in the Inquisition, they have disparate backgrounds, and they have a presumed motivation to build cooperative interpersonal relationships, which is something Ignatius knows how to leverage.

Just as a ferexample, Ignatius wants to know if any of his Malbau sibs survived the loss of his home sector, and if so, he'd like to track them down. He's only very recently gotten out of sector himself, and most of the contacts he had back there probably died when the orks overran the naval facilities he was living at. Meanwhile, hey... inquisition people might be able to you know, inquire, using channels he hasn't got access to?

So this isn't about Ignatius having "dirt" on another PC. It's about him trying to see if one of them can help him find a sib.

Another example; Ignatius... well, doesn't really know what the gently caress to do with his life? Since his late teens he's been trying to survive, and now - the adventure we're about to go on notwithstanding - he's escaped the mortal danger he was in. Maybe it's time to set some long-term life goals for himself, and maybe these new people who are going to get to know him pretty well might be able to help.

Not that Ignatius is entirely ready to face those questions himself, mind you.

As an aside, Ignatius didn't desert the Navy, his transfer to the Inquisition was legit. He used his contacts and leverage to convince someone with influence in the Inquisition to force through that personnel transfer at a time when most of his peers were facing impending death-by-Ork (although a large majority of them were still in denial about the inevitability of that outcome). There might be a superior or peer Navy officer who is salty about Ignatius' means of escape, but that'd be more of a personal beef than an official wanted poster with his name on it.

There are plenty of other people in Ignatius' past who might have a problem with him, of course. He's done what he had to do, and at times, people got hurt. (But they were all bad guys, no really!)

in Dark Heresy 1, yes, you would. in Dark Heresy 2, no, you don't

if you want booze, lho etc you just have it, or you can buy it from a street vendor with very little fanfare. there's just no point in tracking little things like that - it'd be like making you do skill tests for inconsequential actions like climbing ladders. we are tracking ammo and kit, though!



i think we're on track for opening the game thread on Wednesday 20th, unless anyone has further concerns or uncertainties. please make sure your charsheet is up to scratch and all in one post. please also name your profession (i.e. you're not a Seeker, you're an Oathsworn Bounty Hunter or something).

get all your requisitions done, do some initial first-impressions if you want. a little closer to the time i will run through how you post (it's pretty standard) and how you do rolls - i will probably devolve some of the rolling to you and do some of the rolls myself

ok, sorry, not looked at this properly until now.

first up, you've got the stats for the Light Flak Cloak instead of the regular Flak Cloak; should be 3AP on body/limbs. unless for some reason you want the light flak cloak; they are exactly as rare and subtle as each other

second up, you have a hand flamer with no training for it. you can still use it, but if you don't buy Weapon Training: Flame at 300xp then people get +20 to dodge your attacks with it. stats for it are as follows: pistol/ 10m/ s/-/- / 1d10+4E / pen2 / clip2 / reload 2full / Flame, Spray

thirdly, you need to pick specialisations for Lore skills, as per your Scholastic Lore: Tactica - these are on pages 102, 104 and 113. useful Scholastic lores would probably be stuff that inquisitors are expected to deal with - heresy, etc. ditto for useful forbidden lores - Space Marines and Adeptus Mechanicus will probably be not particularly useful for you.

fourthly, please put your purchased skills + talents in the skills and talents section of your charsheet. leperflesh, ditto for you. if your advance has a characteristic next to it (e.g. Fel), it's a skill. if it has a number, it's a characteristic advance and you need to make sure it's reflected in your stats. if it has neither, it's a talent, so put it in the talents section.

cool cool. combat reference sheet is handy but not essential - what i tend to forget is stuff like defensive talents (e.g. True Grit), so that's the sort of thing that'd be useful to post. again, i'll cover this off a bit closer to the time.

For someone who has bad ballistic skill, a hand flamer will be more consistently useful even with the +20 agi modifier to defend against it.

Consider that someone with 30 ballistic skill goes to fire a shot. If you dedicate a full round to the attack you have a half action aim and a half action shot. If you're close range you get +20 to the action +10 for single shot and wind up with a 60% chance to hit. The person on the receiving end has to roll a dodge check with between 10-40% success rate depending on agility and the trained/untrained status of dodge, which cuts that 60% success rate to be closer to 50-30% success rate.

Now consider a hand flamer, you go to attack and you don't have to aim, leaving a half action open for things like moving into cover (or spending a half action to draw it from holster). Because you don't roll ballistic skill to hit (spray weapons hit automatically so long as they are in range) they are automatically considered to be hit unless they can succeed at the agility (not dodge) check to get out of the way that gets a +20 modifier if the attacker is not trained. Per the rules if they cannot get out of the spray within their agility bonus in meters, they straight up cannot dodge. The success rate of untrained flamers is then all things considered between 40-60% with flame weapons untrained or 70-80% with.

Basically the point I'm trying to get at is that someone bad at shooting will get as good or better milage out of a spray weapon even untrained compared to a standard weapon. When we get in game proper just take the weapon training the first time you gain exp and you're suddenly an ace with it.

You also cannot take a bolter as a starter because IIRC all bolt weapons count as Very Rare and would be a step too rare for you to take. Edit: In addition you also do not have Bolt weapon training so you would have a hell of a time hitting anything.

also it's a flamethrower so you can use it to set stuff on fire. also also if there's no space for someone to dodge, they can't dodge.

inquisitiorial rank is Acolyte. this is a broad rank spanning "gibbering newbie" to "possibly the most dangerous man on the planet". the inquisition doesn't really have ranks, just Inquisitors/Not Inquisitors, influence and coercion.

I'm gonna go with Paracletus, which google translate tells me is latin for "counselor", but in a legal sense, like a legal advocate/defender. The Inquisition intends the title to set the targets of a paracletus' investigations at ease, as if his job is to be their advocate in any investigation, but ironically (of course) a paracletus' real job is to make friends with a target so they can be pumped for information. Which maybe some people understand, but nobody would ever say aloud, at least not where a paracletus could hear them.

Sound good? If so, then my sheet in this post (just a few posts up on this page) is done, and is my final sheet for the game.

yeah that's good

your stiletto has stats of melee / 1d5 R + SB (knives are pointy fists in the world of dark heresy), and if you could put (req) next to your medkit, multikey, photovisor and void suit that'd be helpful because it points out when you acquired them.

void suit will be usable underwater, incidentally, albeit clumsily

Also incidentally in real life, NASA uses the same EVA suits that go into space in their underwater training facility. Anything sealed to be air tight space will keep air in the suit underwater. There's a reason I mentioned it during requisition talk. There's a method to my madness I swear!

I figured void suits come with 12 hour air tanks vs a 1 hour tank for a rebreather you're looking at longer albeit clumsier dives in a void suit.

ok here's how you maek psot



PBP Posting

Formatting for these games stays fairly consistent; for my posts, I will give them a bolded title, a bolded location/scene name, and a bolded, much more generic location that'll be the ship or the planet you're on. You might get some musical backing, which you are welcome to click or to not click. For the main body of the post, "Speech" and Names will be in bold; normal text will be normal. Out of character text will be in italics; this will normally be separated from the rest of the post by a line of hyphens. Information that only certain characters have will be spoilered, following that character's name. Posts will generally be in present tense, flashbacks will be in perfect. Just follow along with the tense I'm using, basically.

An example is as follows:

quote:

Humble Beginnings
The Bridge
"Fear Not His Mailed Fist", Lunar-class cruiser


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czVTga5g66s

"I'm glad you could all join me, Acolytes," booms Inquisitor Terentius, "for we have much work to do. Follow me! To my... inner sanctum!"

He unlocks the ostentatious double doors with a gnarled, baroque key. He hurls them open with a powerful gesture, revealing a small, grimy bedchamber. The walls are lined with lurid and upsetting art. Leaning in close, he whispers into Bulworth's ear: "breathtaking, is it not?"

------

welcome to anime club. Give me a +0 Toughness test to not become nauseated.

Gamma: you're pretty sure you can sense the warp here, even through the Gellar field
Ignatius: you recognise this as Tau art; possession of this is pretty heretical!!
Aperta: this is just like in that corrupted dataslate you discovered in the arch-heretic's lair!
Eadian: there's a guy hiding behind one of the wallhangings. he's trying not to be heard.


For you guys, whenever you make a post I want your charsheet linked in the title. Good example is found here.

It would also be moderately useful for you to link a combat block like at the bottom of Aperta's sheet, but that's not essential. What I would ask is for you to highlight any defensive talents you have, or current temporary circumstances that might have an impact on people attacking you.

You also really really really need to keep your charsheets updated. With damage, expended ammunition, thrown grenades, all that sort of thing. As an example, if you don't update your charsheet after receiving healing, play will continue as though you're still wounded. I will periodically be checking up on this but it's much easier for you guys to handle it.

-------------

In terms of how you post - do a description of what you want to achieve, and then make notes on it in the out-of-character italics at the bottom. Some of you will know that you're trying to roll Common Lore - Anime Wallscrolls, and that's fine. Some of you will have less of an immediate ability to translate into game actions, and that's fine too - just make sure it's clear what you're trying to achieve.

If you're doing something that doesn't progress the plot - e.g. share a smoke with a guard - you don't need to do any rolls (but why are you doing it?). If you're trying to do something that can have plot ramifications - e.g. talk your way past a guard - this probably needs a skill roll. Please give me a d100 roll from a tracked site like Orokos; you won't know all the modifiers, so you won't know if you've succeeded or failed, so don't continue your post until you get a response. Best practice is to leave your thread hanging at the point where you try and perform the skill.

If you're in combat, please leave the rolls to me. Combat has a restricted set of actions - we'll deal with that when we need to.

Any questions, please shout.


e: also I'll try to keep it to an update per week. Which means a post a week from you people. Are any of you primarily phone-posters, or are we all squatting awkwardly in front of computers?

Well, technically, a vacuum suit is designed to hold atmosphere in, while an underwater suit is designed to hold water out. Negative pressure for the voidsuit is always 1 ATM, while positive pressure on the underwater suit depends on depth and can be far, far higher. Moreover, it's possible that a vacuum suit could use sealants that are water soluble, and also might have external electrical contacts or circuitry that is damaged by water, especially salt water.

But, it would make sense if the designers of a standard void suit also test it in water, and using water soluble sealants would be pretty silly.

quote:

I figured void suits come with 12 hour air tanks vs a 1 hour tank for a rebreather you're looking at longer albeit clumsier dives in a void suit.

A rebreather uses chemicals to scrub CO2 and add O2 to the atmosphere, so it could be tankless. A voidsuit having a 12-hour supply requires tanks of air, presumably, unless it's using futuretech of some kind. But in any case, Ignatius is a voidborn shiprat and spacer who just wouldn't even think of not owning a voidsuit, it'd be like a planetborn person not owning shoes. I mean, OK, you can go barefoot, maybe a lot, but you'd still at least own a pair of shoes.

Anyway: I'm probably going to be eager to post way more than once a week, and I bet most of the others are too. I might miss a day or two on a busy weekend but normally I'm on SA like, all day every day, so yeah.

e. OK, I guess I'm going along with DeathSandwich's alteration of the narrative to "actually we weren't all at the warehouse for the shift change when the servitor arrived," and adding that the reason is because Barry has gotten really sloppy about schedules while we waited for instructions. I'll leave it to the others to decide if the rest of us were all there when the servitor arrived and Barry's the odd man out, or if for some reason the Inquisition sent individual massively expensive telegrams to each of us instead of sending one for the team. Maybe we re-sealed it and sent the servitor to go find Barry after the rest of us had a look?

Also, I've decided the warehouse is empty, and Ignatius has been making sure the local gutterpunks know it, so they won't bother breaking in to try to steal stuff.

You know, I actually really like that. I was knocking off and taking a meal break during my shift because gently caress this poo poo is boring. I'm the first one there because of course, it was my shift. My character is just sick of the waiting game and starting to get lax.

Editing my post to reflect that.

Narrative's a bit loose at the moment because, well, nothing's happened other than you've got a letter. Even though Bulworth's toting it around, one thing I'm firm on is that you have all seen it by the time you post. There is one letter for the whole team.

Leperflesh please bold your speech, too. Statblock is a bit too dense - all I'd really be interested in fron there is wounds, fate, and double team. The rest I can get from your charsheet.

Alright, I'll edit my post here in a little bit to reflect me starting a message chain to the others back before I leave my little little apartment. It'll explain why everyone staggers in one at a time at least.
