Well, we actually talked about this a bit. The idea some of us (read: me) are pushing goes like this: with a chapter's greater success rating and growing power comes greater responsibility and expectation.

If the Ultrasmurgs are so fucking great, they're going to get the WORST assignments and be expected to execute like they're the fucking Grey Knights.

Okay, so I wrote a HUGE fucking infodump that's getting ready for posting in a new thread all of its own (it's like fifteen goddamn posts worth, so deal).

Now I'm finishing things up and writing the FAQ, and I want to ask people if they want to add questions to it.

Here's what I have so far:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1) WHERE'S THE DOWNLOAD LINK?

2) I'm one of the anons that was developing this before! Who the fuck are you guys and what do you think you're doing with our project? Why aren't you considering our ideas?

3) I'm a Games Workshop employee/affiliate/fanboy/lawyer and I think you're doing something wrong! Why are you taking money from the company/infringing on copyrights/eating our delicious fetuses?

4) What happens when you guys get your Cease & Desist letter? Yeah, you think about that, smart guy?

5) I have a tiny brain. Can you explain what's happening to me again, please?

6) Those design goals and feature categories are broad and vague. Can you at least tell me what kind of games the programmers are looking to for inspiration so we can know what kind of flavor to expect from your end of the project?

7) Will I be able to play my custom chapter/mod chapters in this game?

8) Will I be able to fall to chaos/play fukken xenoooos/play guard or Sororitas or =][=/etc?

9) In the grim darkness of the ASCII future, there is only war. Will I be able to control tactical battles? Does the combat auto-resolve?

If that doesn't make sense, then please understand the following: the program you're running is our earliest release. It is a pre-alpha written as a proof of concept for our random chapter generator, and meant solely to give you some jollies from procedural chapter generation stuff.

We apologize if we have given you disappoint, but our aggressive release schedule will likely make it less of a sad experience for you.

Its a shame what you guys are doing is illegal because otherwise I would love to do 2d art for a game inspired by KODP.

pfftf I don't know it would be fair if they could not get you if its not for profit but i think I remember them shutting down allot of fan mods soo hmm... They make allot of money selling their brand if anyone can pick up and use it its very very very bad for their business. SO they will always try and stamp out anything.

If I was you guys I would plan for the worst. Make a game very 'inspired' by 40k but not the same. But make the game with easy modding in mind, after you release the game also release a 'fan made' mod that turns it into 40k the next day. Hell you might even be able to see the original game or get some donations that way.

Just play dumb is the idea. Then again maybe this is just me being over cautious. Also if you make it easy to add in 2D art that might be interesting later...

You are shitting me?

Eccelsiarchy prestige over 75 kicks ass because you can petition the local Adepta Sororitas convent for help if shit creek is really where you are up.

Only other force in the universe to make heavy use of power armour and bolters and they don't have a number cap.

Sure it may take 3 of them to equal 1 Astartes but when some of the convents number up to near 10,000 it is suddenly so much fun.

Only real downside is that you have to Imperial Creed trait and destroy most of the "Interesting" artifacts if they are encountered.

Oh, and if you post a Librarian on the same campaign then you loose 5 bro points with them.
