[ERROR] No.18517205 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

Greetings gents!
I just finished watching Redline, and it got me thinking about Reavers. We all know that the Dark Eldar have lethal reaver death races for kicks, but what exactly are they like?

Do they pimp out their rides with insane technology to fuck over their competitors? Are there any rules? Presumably no, seeing that these are the Dark Eldar we are talking about.

Could they hold these races in other places than Commorragh? Mix thing up by starting up the race in the middle of a forgeworld? Or in ork held planet, so they may have the greenskins as target practice and/or distraction?

And most importantly, would you play a game about these kinds of races?

>> No.18517316

>>18517205

This gives me an idea for an DE army.
As much skimmers and fast attack as possible.
Hellions, Reavers and Venoms. Just flying around the enemy.
Now if I only knew how to make it work.

>> No.18517420

>>18517205

Why do you think that the reavers even partake in raids besides the slaves? The raids are a goddam bloodsport for them. They are aired across Commorragh as high entertainment, which already makes them surprisingly similar to the Redline races.

And yes, I would play a game like that, assuming it had ample amounts of customizability and speed.

>> No.18517452

And what if they lose?
I mean, I presume everyone just laughs, but still.

>> No.18517513

>>what exactly are they like?
Street races through the most populated areas of Comorragh. Based on a point system:
Kill a slave or pedestrian? 1 point.
Kill a DE? 5 points.
Kill a Trueborn? 20 points.
Kill a fellow racer? 50 points.
Finish first? 200 points.
Whoever finishes with the most points wins.

>> No.18517541

I always love discussing Dark Eldar society.
It is quite entertaining how they are basically just having fun on the expense of other races, although they need it to survive, they still bloody well enjoy it.

I could easily see that a bold archon might support and stage a reaver race in the streets of heavily defended hiveworld just for the personal fame it would bring him, if the raid/race was a success.

Sure, just need to set up a track and pegs for pedestrians and slaves, and minis for the more valuable targets. Anyone whose path drives over a civilian kills that civvie and gets his points. Dark Eldar, Trueborn, and racers have several 'hits' worth of health before they die, etc.

Dark Eldar really have a sweet thing going on.
They got their shit under control. They are virtually untouchable inside their little pocket dimension and they can attack almost everywhere without any impunity.

>Do they pimp out their rides with insane technology to fuck over their competitors?
Yup, it's pretty much standard practice for each Reaver to kit his or her jetbike out with as many extra engines, boosters, and secret weapons as possible.

>Are there any rules?
Probably depends on whoever's hosting the event. In Path of the Renegade, there's a brief bit showing off a Reaver race, and there do seem to be a few rules - the competitors aren't allowed to attack each other until the start of the second lap, upon which time their on-board weapons activate and the racetrack also starts trying to kill them.

>Could they hold these races in other places than Commorragh?
Most Dark Eldar raids are very quick and brutal affairs, over and done with as fast as possible. I doubt that a raiding force would actually set up an organised race in the middle of an invasion. Though, the Reaver squadrons themselves probably treat battle as just more practice for the racetrack and I'd be very surprised if they didn't compete with one another the whole way through.

Note: They have not raced in any of the races yet, that is saved for next week.

The party currently consists of a techpriest, guardsman, assassin, and a psyker. They were have been in cryo-stasis aboard their inquisitor's ship for about 25-40 years and they were unfrozen to investigate claims on a hive world called Torpunac II. What makes Torpunac special is that 1/8 of the upper hive consists of racetrack and alongside all the racetrack are thousands of casinos. However, the inquisitor had recently found out that every champion driver in Torpunac's Grand Prix, suddenly turned to chaos worship after they won. Fearing the worst, he decided to sent his acolytes down to the planet's surface to find out the cause behind all the chaos worship.
The players decide amongst themselves that they want to go through the planet's public port so they don't look suspicious. When they arrive at the public port, they decided the best plan of action would be to grab a hold of a vehicle. They eventually came across a parking garage and after a few lucky rolls by the assassin and tech-priest, they found themselves with a green sports car.

>> No.18518486

>>18518444
Eventually they came to the Torpunac's administration bloc and decided to have a look around. Upon entering “the largest building”, they decided to butt in line and ask the receptionist where the governor was located. The receptionist merely told them to look at the man behind them in line. However the governor had a few good laughs about it and took them to his office to speak with them personally....
He did not know about the racers turning to chaos worship but he pitied the acolytes and decided that if they helped him with something, he could possibly locate them an apartment for their base of operations. Long story short, they ended up going to a high class party and killed the groom (Tzeench worshipper), the best man (ditto), and an allusion to Karl Marx (political rival to the governor, who was the main target).
After all that nonsense, the players found themselves in their new apartment but intercepted a VOX call talking about a warp anomaly occurring not too far from their current residence They easily decided to investigate the anomaly but when they got there, it turned out to be a giant “bubble”. The assassin, who does not have a high driving skill decides to go into the bubble. Long story short, the car is lost, they find a survivor, there is a giant black tentacled mass in the middle of the bubble, and it is snowing very harshly.
And thus was the end of Session 1.(Sadly I accidentally railroaded many actions as this was my second time gming and it was a new system that we were all learning)

Good point.
The Imperium isn't a threat to the Dark Eldar in any meaningful way. In fact, it is actually beneficial to them. It provides them with almost inextinguishable source of slaves, while being completely unable of actually properly fighting back.
So you are probably right, the Dark Eldar would have nothing to gain from killing off the Emperor.

Aww man, this thread after me and my roommate started swinging around ideas on Redline-inspire ork speed kult army. One of the main ideas was how it'd work out in regular games - the orks hit the enemy because they actually miss - they are trying to shoot down eachother, but are so shit with aiming that fail at doing so. The deffkoptas are recording the races and translating them to the rest of the WAAAAGH but since being simple cameramen is piss boring, they also get to shoot rockets where the fuck ever.

And then the Dark Eldar join in, because fuck this if they'll let clumsy ass orks be faster than them. SPEEEEEED!

Terra itself might be a bit too over the top, but I can see something like this going down on, say, Armageddon. Rumours start flying around that the Dark Eldar have worked out a deal with the Orks to hold a huge race for fun and profit, and other factions join in for fun or for pride. At least one Space Marine chapter ends up sending in their best biker after being called chicken.

Imagine it. A high speed race in the streets of Commorragh, the reaver gangs trying to desperately catch their top racer who managed to steal a jetbike and fly away.
The custodian is extremely valuable for entertainment purposes, so the reavers who "own" him don't want him to die, while their competing gangs might want to either capture the custodian for themselves or just eliminate him.

The other powers of the Dark City would also be interested. The wytch cults would love to have a custodian on their arenas, the archons might see him as a valuable trophy and the haemonculi might want to get him for their weird experiments.

This NEEDS to exist.

Each faction has multiple options, and difficult terrain could be handled better or worse. To keep things competitive, most races would have to feature a lot of difficult terrain and multiple paths. Heavy vehicles would be able to smash through it, while faster vehicles would have to go around.

Just bashing something quick together here, but... Maybe for Difficult Terrain, it could have a given value, which the models have to test against, depending on their speed? Using either their front armor or double toughness to test against?

Just as a made-up example, a field of rubble has a Difficult Terrain value of 5. An Ork Trukk barrelling at the rubble at full speed along a road at 18" must roll a d6 + 5 + 1 inch for every 6" over 6" (always rounded up) he has traveled or intends to travel this round. So, 1d6+7, not looking good for him. A Leman Russ, on the other hand, would bash right through that obstacle with no problem whatsoever.

I'm also thinking of something called Turning Arc Inches, i.e. how fast you go plus how heavy your armor and/or Toughness is equals how much you're allowed to rotate the model per inch. Obviously not something useful for a regular game of 40k, but necessary for a racing game. That'd make the Leman Russ up there need to be more cautious around corners, while the Ork Trukk could swing around it at full speed with more ease.

Should I pursue this, or does all of this sound retarded to /tg/?

>> No.18525995

>>18525956

I was thinking of a simple rule for that. If you want to avoid the difficult terrain by avoiding it, fine. Measure the terrain. You must travel one inch over the top of it to clear it. For every inch above ground level, you lose an inch of horizontal movement.

So, just as an example, a skimmer opts to fly over the terrain rather than risk the difficult terrain check (because he's in a Land Speeder and only has 10 for Front Armor). The difficult terrain is 3" high. The skimmer avoids the difficult terrain check, but his movement is reduced by 4".

>> No.18526038

Another thought... I'm going to have to bash together optional rules for turbo boosters and/or steering improvements. As well as rules for sideswiping competitors and a much more forgiving damage system (because the bastard Leman Russ player is just going to hang back and shove cannonfire up everyone's ass otherwise)

This is going to be complicated.

This is turning more into a wacky races sort of thing than a Reaver Death-race. I am not saying either is better than the other, just that they are very different things.
Wacky races should focus on variety and comedy: lots of different races, lots of vehicles, the more crazy ideas the better.
Reaver death-races would need a system that's a little more serious, and focus on things like traction, acceleration and top speed for the bikes, while testing the riders reflexes, stamina and willingness to do a boatload of drugs (I need to make an overdose chart).

I think I'm going to be focusing on both, actually. My goal is going to be making a core system that works well and feels consistent while also feeling competitive.

The wacky races type, where everyone can bring whatever model they feel like, or one which focuses specifically on a specific vehicle, will be dictated by the rules. If you want your Reaver deathrace, you'll have it. I'm going to be aiming for about six to eight generic modifications per vehicle-type, with one or two on top of that which are race-specific.

What do you think about having random pick ups in the track like in mario kart?
They could be status changing effects, weapons or some other useful boosts.
I already thought that they could be applied by making some sort of card deck for them, from which the player draws a card upon driving over some sort of marker.

They would probably fit better to the whacky racing thing. I can already imagine a few of them:
>STEEL RAIN: a drop pod full of marines descends to the track and begins to shoot at everyone nearby.
>Black hole IN A BOX: You drop a box containing a black hole.
>Lance stirkes: Orbital laser batteries strike the track.

These would be rather powerful, I know, but I think that they would be also very hilarious. Wouldn't fit in to competitive matches.

Alright, let's start this shit. I'll start with a rough concept and post it in a week when I've finished and everyone has forgotten about it entirely.
You got 5 attributes, alright? Goes Fast, Toughness, Accelerate, Handle, and Maneuver. You are also provided with 30 points to buy these attributes.
Armor: How much plating your machine has.
Toughness: the internal integrity of your machine, used for preventing crits
Accelerate: Amount that speed increases per turn.
Goes Fast: Top speed and likelihood of losing speed if hit.
Handle: How well your machine corners and holds its shit together when it's missing two wheels.
Maneuver: How well your machine can jump, cross terrain, etcetera.

Now armor comes in two types: External, and Internal. External armor is determined by your Armor, and the total number of AP is equal to your armor x3. You then distribute your armor between your top, back, front, and sides. It's important to figure out your machine's weakpoints, because having uber-armor doesn't mean shit if the enemy can get at your soft, turtle-like undercarriage. Your internal armor is special, because you can only hit it on a side with no armor left, and if it's hit, you have to roll (toughness) - (the number of times your armor has been hit previously) to avoid having your shit explode.

Movement is mostly governed by Fast and Acceleration. Your top speed is Fast x3 inches per round, and your speed increases by your acceleration each round, though if you really need to(and trust me, you often will), you can redline your machine, doubling your acceleration and raising your top speed by 1 multiplier(IE x3 to x4) for the round but halving your handling and requiring a toughness save to keep from blowing up your engine.

>> No.18533029

>>18533002
Finally, you're gonna pick your machines traits. Traits are special equipment that do things not covered by the core stats. These include guns, turbo, whatever. Now I'm going to go out on a limb here and say you aren't an idiot. This means that you should know that using faction-specific traits for another, unrelated faction is retarded. Just letting you know.
SAMPLE TRAITS:
-5-Inertia Based: the machine is running on inertia, and has no engines. Thus, it starts the race at its top speed and raises its top speed to Fast x4, but has no acceleration score and thus is considered destroyed if it hits 0 speed. This is compatible with Turbo, however.
-3-Basic Turbo: this attaches boosters to a vehicle that allow it to accelerate to full speed for one round, then 2/3rds of full speed next round, then 1/3rds full speed next round. Note that this is a bonus to acceleration, and the vehicle maintains its speed during this time if it is not slowed.
--4-POWER Turbo: These things DOUBLE your top speed and Accel while active, but beware, as your handling and maneuver are reduced to 0 while active, meaning that you will just be ramming into anything and everything.
-3-Ramming: You take half damage on two sides of your vehicle for the purposes of smashing through and into stuff.
-3-Hovering: your machine halves all difficult terrain penalties and is considered to be 1" higher up when making jump tests. Suck it, plebs.
--6-Flying: Your machine can fly, Fuck yeah! It ignores all difficult terrain modifiers and can change altitude in addition to moving normally.
-3-Weapons Platform: Your machine has one Side covered in weapons. These weapons can fire in a 90 degree arc and do 1 damage by default. To hit someone you must make opposed maneuverability checks.

...and onward from there. Welp, g'night Anon, you can expect a better version in 1-2 weeks if I remember.

His second turn, he managed to catch a bike squad I left too close to his nobz and nearly slaughtered them, leaving only one bike and an arena champion to fight the next round, though they managed to take out one nob and wound another in the process. My second turn was mainly staying the fuck away from the nobz and mopping up the leftover warbikes while my razorwings went after the buggies, knocking out the flamers on both. After that, I managed to lure his nobs closer to my deployment zone where the five remaining wyches managed to kill them with shard nets and agonizers. My last two battered bike squads cought up with his warbosses and had a nasty two rounds where eventually Rinzler managed to slay the last warboss with a few well placed power sword hits. I managed to wipe him out on the back half of turn 5 with less than a quarter of my army remaining.

If I ever do a game like this, you bet that will be the final race.
It could actually be quite epic campaign. The players could start as lowly racers, with bare bones vehicles, and through victories get reputation and dosh to upgrade their machines.
I imagine that it could fit to a rogue trader campaign. The players get captured by the Dark Eldar, and are forced to race in the deadliest race against other captured humans, orks, dark eldar, corsairs and perhaps even chaos forces. They could become minor superstars in the Commorraghian racing scene, and their final race would earn their freedom.

All the while the archon behind this is just organizing the whole race for shit and giggles.

Each has their place, anon. They each give a different experience, and are fun for similar but subtly different reasons. Tribes is fun because it lets you shoot shit while going fast; combat racing games are fun because they let you go fast while shooting shit.

I still have some unpainted old DE bikes that I've slightly converted, and a converted jetbike Farseer I just finished (I just stuck a High Elf mage onto a jetbike.

>> No.18537566

here is how to do this in tabletop terms.
1) Everyone gets three bikes of their faction, They all have to be the same bike type, but they can be equipped in any way, ignoring the squad size weapon limits.
2) Any points not spent on your three bikes or upgrades can go into specials. Each bike has a single, built-in turbo boost that can be used once per game with no side effects. Turbo boosts will move a bike 24" no matter what type it is. Additional turbo-boosts may be purchased for a bike at 10 points each. For every turbo boost used by a contestant after the first, roll a d-6. On a 1 or 2, the bike (or rider) couldn't take the strain and crashes.
3) Additional points can be spent on combat drugs. 10 points each for:
ALDRENALEX: A model with this drug will always strike first in melee clashes. If both models have aldrenalex, they strike at the same time.
'SLAUGHT: Grants the model FNP, though they may not attack using ranged weaponry.
HYPEX: Roll 3 dice and take the highest when in full throttle mode
DEATHEYE: Grants the model BS2

The game is played on a 3' x 10' area marked out on the floor, (unless you have a table large enough) which is littered with terrain of all sorts. There race has a player that will both act as a game referee as well as control a 500 point army (this must follow the army faction's FOC) that attempts to kill any racers they can get to. They can set up anywhere outside a 2" area from the starting line. Each of the contestant players' bikes count as a separate squad. At the start of the game, all the contestants roll a die to decide who moves their bikes first. The referee player will then attack with his forces after all the contestants have had a turn.

My two cents:
I've not got this 100% figured out but I think this game could benefit from some old school 'luck' points. Each vehicle gets a certain amount of luck points, which can be used to employ 'special moves'. Eg, 'High oktane fuel' for Orks. The head mek injects a can of seriously unstable promethium directly into the engine; this can lend an extra burst of speed for an overtake, or it could fail and slow it down for a few moments (petrol squiggs got caught in the injection system or something) Some kind of test needs to be worked out to see if this fails, partially succeeds, or catastrophically fails.
In addition to the special moves, luck points can be spent to make you corner faster, boost your chances with an overtake and avoid enemy attacks.
How's that sound?

The object of the game is to rack up the most points. You get 10 points per infantry model killed from the referee's army, 50 points for taking out a vehicle, and 20 points for taking out another contestant. The first bike to cross the finish line gets 100 points, second gets 50. You tally the points together from all three bikes at the end of the race. Some of the rules from normal 40k are changed:
1) Assaulting any unit no longer locks them in combat for the next turn.
2) The game has no turn limit other than whenever the first contestant reaches the finish line.
3) All contestant players start on one end of the board at the edge of the table. You may place them anywhere not within an inch of an enemy model.
4) Models may not fire or attack another contestant until the start of turn 2

all contestants have a 5+ invulnerable save.
Bikes neither turbo boosting nor shooting may go full throttle (run) by rolling a d-6 and moving that distance.
Any faction can take a non-named HQ character (Captain, Commissar, Archon, Overlord, Daemon Prince, Crisis Suit Commander) and put them on a bike for the cost of an un-upgraded bike.
Unfortunately, tyranids are out of the race, not having a bike equivalent. Tau use Piranahs and tetras for bikes

Any vehicle being used as a bike that normally has an armor value (Tetras, Pirhanahs, Land Speeders, Blood Angel Rhinos) can be used but counts it as T6 with a 3+ save instead of armor 10.

If an HQ character is piloting the bike, then they may upgrade the bike with whatever wargear they themselves can use in addition to the bike's normal allowed wargear.

I assume the drug that gives BS is supposed to be B 5 (hits on 2+) rather than BS2. Also, I'd let Reavers keep their 36 inch turboboost, as they're a lot more fragile than any other bike (all other bikes have a 3+ save, exept Screamers of Tzeetch which have a 5++ save, while Reavers have a 5+ one). Since turboboosting could only be used for a limited amount of times, the extra speed shouldn't imbalance things too much (and would be balanced out by not getting save against any other bikes' weapons).

all dark and craftworld eldar jetbikes already have a boost to speed in that they can move 6" in the assault phase even if not assaulting. So they can move 12" in the move phase, go full throttle up to 6" in the shooting phase, then move an extra 6" without even having to turbo boost. DE bikes even have a free random combat drug, being wych type units. Not to mention you can stick a damn ARCHON on a bike if you feel like dumping a lot of points into it.

Someone earlier in this thread already mentioned using tyranids as a random element in the races.

There was also discussion about implementing random pick ups like in the mario kart games. So when a player would drive over a certain marker in the track, he would, for example, draw a card from the random pick up deck. They could be stat boosts, weapons or other useful things. OR they might be completely silly stuff like having a drop pod of marines enter the track, and start shooting up the place.

Here's my take on it, they use some sort of webway or other portal-device to hop between multiple worlds. Think about it, first 2 miles of the race are in Commoragh, 3 miles through Catachan, another 2 being in Armageddon, or maybe have a section that's underwater, having to dodge hungry sharks or whales passing through (or their alien equivalents).
There could be parts of the race that take place in the atmosphere of a gas giant, bringing up images of Bespin's Cloud City...

They wouldn't be racing along a predetermined track, they'd be racing from one ring/portal to the next. Whatever it takes to make it to the next stargate jump.
