Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I've decided it's time to take the plunge and try my hand at DMing a game of Rogue Trader. I've not done any DM work before, so initially things will be very much "by-the-book". This will be play by post right here, with invisible castle used for rolls.
I'm looking for 4 or 5 players, including exactly 1 Rogue Trader, to form part of an as yet unnamed dynasty. Well respected, the dynasty has granted the group the resources required to begin operations in the Koronus Expanse. Expeditions had been undertaken in the past, but this is the first genuine attempt to gain a foothold and business in the Expanse.
So as stated, 4 or 5 player characters ideally including 1 Rogue Trader. If there are multiple people who want the trader position some way of working out who gets the job will be arranged. We will roll for characteristics. You can have 1 "free" (not adjacent to the preceding square) square on the Origin Path. You will need the book, this can get complicated. Make sure you check the errata as well, there aren't many changes that will be relevant but they do exist.
I will design the ship, but welcome suggestions on the kind of ship the group wants. Each character may use their single free acquisition to acquire a ship component worth 1 ship point, but we won't be combining multiple characters acquisitions to get a more expensive piece.
So time to get designing. I intend to cut off the applications Sunday night, but if things are moving slowly I may extend that. By then I'm looking for a character sheet and rough background I can work from.
So, I look forward to this outing, and hope that my first try at being in charge works out well.
