I purge her village of this foul xenos taint

Then skin the corpses for that premo croc skin to sell, and of course I take all the eggs so I can farm them

So /tg/ I'm going to be part of a Rogue Trader group and I wound up being the Lord Captain himself.

Now our going to be working on character creation next session but a friend who is also playing (hes gonna be a seneschal) and I have been flipping through the RT book for ideas. It was here we came across Dark Voyage' in the trials and travails section.

Now this looks pretty damn cool and we began musing over how something like this would impact someone. Sure it says +1d5 insanity points but thats just mechanics wise.

We decided right there that a Dark Voyage was going to be a connection for our characters, we had both experienced something traumatic and both our characters are trying to come to terms with it while also seeking to keep up appearances so they wont look weak.

My pal tossed around the idea of his Seneschal repressing the crap out of what occurred, not talking about it and just backhanding bitches who mention it while growing increasingly fond of amsec. So much so he wont set foot in the area where the event occured (we've been leaning towards gellar field failure during their first voyage together)

I mused about a Lord Captain who's convinced on some level that he didnt actually survive the incident. That this is some brink of death delusion and he'll wake up any minute matrix style to find himself back at the event. This of course is fueling his reckless behavior because he just doesnt care anymore.

Now that backstory is out of the way the reason I come to you /tg/ to ask if any of you have run a character who has suffered a dark voyage? what route did you go with it? Was it a gellar field failure or something even worse? Are me and my friend potentially putting too much emphasis on the dark voyage in our characters?

Nah, Weaver installed a fleshlight in her crotch and went to be all creepy codependent with a Rogue Trader.

Because Rogue Traders are fucking boss.

I want a 40k TV show.

And I don't want it to be about Space Marines or the IG, and I don't want it to be grim and dark and serious. I want it to be Rogue Trader, and I want it to be hilarious. I want the main cast to be a motley crew of sarcastic jackasses, and I want them to bum around the universe trying to have sex with eldar and settling two-million-throne bets on whether you can make a Kreiger laugh. I want the excuse for explaining the 40k universe to the viewers to be a naive Tau water caste diplomat girl, and I want the ex-Sororitas Archmilitant to molest her. I want the entire galaxy to be as batshit and over-the top as the first edition of 40k, and I want every character to take it completely seriously. I want the Hitchhiker's Guide to the 41st Millennium.

Greetings, hunter! We are the Humans! We eat leaves. We eat roots. We eat the beasts of the field, the beasts of the sea, the beasts that burrow int he ground and fly within the air. We eat the lowliest yeast and the most magnificent of predators. We eat worlds. When we feel pleasure, we bare our teeth in a "smile."

You much resemble a great predator from our homeworld, the Tiger! We killed them and ate their testicles, in the hopes of increasing our formidable sexual prowess. They did little for us, and we have almost run out of them. Perhaps you will do more?

Or perhaps you will be like the Canines, vicious predators who have submitted to us and now join us in our hunts! That would be a joyous thing.

We welcome your fleet with wide grins and readied weapons! Whether by subduing you or consuming your culture/technology/worlds/flesh, we will gain much strength from you!

Exploiting this planet is going to be an eye of a lot harder without a ship, but I'm going to give it the old college try.

Hey TG I am going to run a Rouge Trader game with in the comming week, I plan on using the starter quest, but this will be the first time I GM, any tips?

some things to know
My group has never gotten past character creation in the past,

I have never GM'd a game before. ever.

I have a good grip on the fluff and exposistion but the rules of play are a bit confusing for the time being

I know one guy is going to be a seneschal.

main questions:

The Need to Reads of the core rule book besides plain old all of it.

do i need maps of the areas and minis?

Could I have a link to scans?

general bullshit.

The xeno has nothing of value. It is inferior in all ways to mankind. Better to raze their structures to the ground with cleansing orbital fire than risk corruption.

I need help here /tg/, I play Rogue Trader with my friends and I am a Seneschal Assassin of sorts. For my birthday my GM gave me a Best craftsmanship Twitch Mask and after we got into a scuffle he gave me a Disguise Kit. Now for fun I want to fuck with everyone on my ship and have fun with my powers. I also have Mimic if that helps you guys. My issue is creating characters to actually take advantage of this because finals are consuming all my fucking time. Can /tg/ help me out?
