Definitely no prep time, so hopefully your jaunt through the warp creates a big distraction!

We will be on at 6, barring some big delay at work or when I stop at the store on my way home.

Just checking to see who is all still available for tomorrow, about 6:00 CST. I should have time tonight to do ACTUAL PREP WORK! So it won't be as seat of the pants as it has been.

Likely going to work in space combat into this session, as a heads up(And good time eater). I hope to use that ship building program to throw some NPC ships together, since RT has a severe lack of pre statted NPC ships I find.

I'm directly in the path of the latest loving hurricane, and while I don't think I'll be evacuating tomorrow, (the thing is projected to hit my area on Saturday) I might be busy with frantic prep work? I'll be there if I can, though!

Oh poo poo that's right. I went to law school where you're at, and I'm seeing law school friends going crazy doing prep on Facebook. Without you, (and assuming Ken is out) that would leave me with 3 players, since chins up dropped last month.

While I could run the game with just three folks, is everyone okay with moving the game to next Wednesday the 13th? I'd feel kinda bad playing the game knowing that JT Jag is stuck in the hellhole of Florida while it is even worse than usual.

Hey JT, my peeps from law school said Jacksonville got flooded really bad by Irma. Let me know if you'll be able to play Wednesday or will be doing clean-up/no power.

If you can't, then I'll likely just push the game to next month.

Oh right a proposal I have for when we hit a planet of people who are reasonable. These guys seem scientifically minded and Adventurous in that scifi star trek way. Maybe we should try to get a big bunch of scientists and friends to dump back on that planet where the broken gate is to get them to work fixing it and also building a colony.

We have to be sure that whoever we end up backing will Praise the Emperor and His Aspect of the Omnissiah.

Okay. So work is going to have me out of town at a training this Wednesday. Tried to tell the Attorney General I have nerd games, but she didn't care.

So I am looking at Monday November 13th as the replacement time. If this does not work let me know. Given my schedule with the Thanksgiving holiday thus month, if the 13th doesn't work, we will likely have to put it off until December.

So a little note here. I occasionally do community theater, and I just got offered a part in their up coming play.

First rehearsal is next Monday, and I won't know the full schedule until I get there. The show is end of January, so our game for the next couple of months may be impacted.

If the schedule is every Monday and Thursday we're good, if they have Wednesday as rehearsal night we'll have to move the game this month and January.

I'll let you know more next Monday.

So thanks to middle school concert the first rehearsal is pushed to tomorrow night. Given that, I'm going to push this week's game to next week so I'll have some time to work on things, and to know for sure what night will work. If Wednesday is rehearsal free i will try to schedule it then, Watch this space tomorrow night for the reschedule date.

Okay, rehearsal schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, so We'll be able to do the game this Wednesday. I'll probably have zero time to prepare anything, but we can go ahead and just run this off the cuff.

Works best in this kind of "throw you into a new sector to explore" kind of game.

So this Wednesday, 7:00 p.m. for start time.

Okay, game is still on for This Wednesday, January 3rd, 7 p.m. CST. You've arrived on Walton Prime, home of the Confederacy. Time to see how the Confederacy like you.

There is one thing I did want to broach. This is my first time running rogue trader, and running a non-pbp game in like 5 years, and I think my GM quality has made that show a bit. There is also a bit of biting off more than I can chew with deciding to make my own homebrew sector with my own factions and the like. Now it's been fun coming up with all these faction and new xenos species you'll encounter, but also daunting.

A couple sessions ago, before the session began, I did mention the potential of switching gears from this game to another 40k game, and I want to gauge interest on that. This isn't one of those, "GM doesn't want to run his campaign anymore" things. I've put a lot of work into my world building here, and want to keep going. However, as I get more and more comfortable running a non post-by-post game again, I have been wanting to run other things and would probably use this existing group, since I do not think I could manage running two different campaigns right now. So I want some input on the following proposals:

1. Keep current course, lets gently caress up/save the Artemis sector. Again, this is a totally valid option. Do not see the below other options as a cry for help. If I didn't want to run this game anymore, I'd just kill it.

2. Play Only War. Only War (OW) is an Imperial Guard focused game using the same (roughly) game system. Most OW games I have played is the GM throwing a regiment at the players and then them playing with that regiment. Where I would differ is we would spend a session either picking an existing regiment, or using the rules and the limited allotted points to make your own regiment. Artillery, line, tank, drop troop, whatever type or regiment you want. Then i'd get the game made for the following session, with whatever your regiment is being dropped in as green troops on an already established battlefield based around your regiment.

3. Play Black Crusade. Black Crusade (BC) is my favorite of the FFG rule sets, as you play as the "bad guys" (relatively) by playing as human followers of the forces of Chaos. Again, we'd spend a session probably making characters, mainly deciding on if we want to do a mixed group, only Chaos Marines, or only Human followers. As opposed to some other BC games, I wouldn't fight against the setting that FFG crafted. You'd be spending almost, if not all, of your time in the Screaming Vortex fighting other Chaos crazies or xenos. No invading the imperium and fighting against marines, no infiltrating and corrupting imperial worlds. Just fighting with other Chaos assholes and aliens over who is king rear end in a top hat.

So just think it over. We can spend time discussing it this coming Wednesday. I'll still prepare to run Rogue Trader, but if it sounds like everyone would rather switch to Only War or Black Crusade, we could through that out the window and spend this session doing the regimental/character creation stuff.

Dachshundofdoom

If we were going to change systems I'd be more in favor of BC than OW, since it's always more fun to be the saturday morning cartoon villains than it is to be the heroes. That being said I'd be 100% down with sticking with RT or going with OW too, they're all good games.

You know my stance on BC, which is to always play BC whenever possible. I'm also liking this game though. I find it amusing to play someone so thoroughly morally bankrupt, in the interest of not being regular bankrupt.
