When playing RT, you must remember that all the characters are SOMEBODY. Right from Rank 1, a 'lowly' voidmaster is someone who has risen to a position of influence and mastery in a weaponized space city populated by tens, possibly hundreds, of thousands of souls. You are not the lowly whiteshield pre-guardsman that a R1 dark heresy character began as. You ARE, or REPRESENT, an ALLY of the EMPEROR HIMSELF, able to mildly flaunt laws, TAKE PLANETS AND STAR SYSTEMS in his name, profit on the backs of all of it, and proudly and openly display xeno weaponry taken from their cold dead corpses as your trophies [and now main weapons].

Do not be a snivelling little retard. Rogue Trader characters are alphas.

>> No.19969232

unfortunately even a shitty dynasty in terrible disrepair should be a step above that crew. Now, characterwise, perhaps, especially when on the ground.

But ships like the Firefly, and whores like that one whore, are things you carry as cargo or auxiliary craft even for a frigate. There's an entire harem of those whores down on deck five.

>> No.19969382

This looks like an appropritae place to ask a nob RT question.

So, I've been looking through the RT book and the ship construction section made me realize something - I don't know a thing about ships.

For example, I'm interested in the iconoclast class raider and it has two dorsal weapon mounts.
There are also prow mounted weapons, port weapon slots and starboard weapon slots.

The port and starboard are fairly cleat to me, they are on the left and right, but the other two, I don't understand completely.

From what I gathered from google, dorsal means that it has a turret on top of the hull, much like and Iowa class real life battleship, while the prow mount means that it has a weapon sticking out of the front, much like the vinidicator tank.

So, did I get these right?

>> No.19969449


>> No.19969452

That is correct. Differently placed weapons have different firing arcs, which are all explained if you read the chapter on ship construction and combat thoroughly.

Unfortunately, the Rogue Trader ship rules are often far from intuitive and only very rarely are rules grouped together in ways you would expect them to be. My group and I skimmed through the rules, and the result is that two years into the campaign we've barely got the basics down to pat.

Do you have any plans on what kind of Rogue Trader you're planning on being? Crime, War, Trade, Exploration and Creed (the religious kind, not the Tactical Genius guy) are the standard keywords for Endeavors, which of those do you plan on focusing on?

Will you lead from the front or will you always keep a couple of bodies between you and danger?

Are you the heir of a dynasty or were you yourself awarded a Warrant of Trade? How did you or your ancestors receive a Warrant of Trade?

Are you a scoundrel only seeking riches for yourself or do you actually believe in the Pax Imperium?

Some questions to help you get started.

>> No.19972030

As one poster who chimed in during the Foie Gras story said, you don't get mad. You have people to do that for you.

You are a Rogue Trader. By extension, you are captain of a warp ship, and possibly commodore of a small wing or even fleet of such ships. Tens of thousands of souls live and die, profit and starve, by your command. You can do what you want, when you want, to whom you want; and anybody who isn't dissuaded from revenge by your fancy piece of paper will have a hell of a time making you toe their line by force. And what's more, you know all this. When you want a soda from the fridge, you don't get it yourself; you flag down the nearest navy rating and have him get it, then float him a hundred Throne tip, cuz why the fuck not? You want the precious metals out from underneath a sacred Exodite shrine, you don't work out an arrangement whereby it's carefully and non-destructively removed; you show up in orbit and tell the knife-eared peasants to hop it before you decide to give your lance crews occasion for some target practice.

You have also seen and done things that the average Imperial citizen could not conceive of in their wildest dreams. You have encountered and both literally and figuratively fucked the shit out of creatures that would make James T Kirk cross himself in horror. You have rubbed elbows with every noble in your operating territory, and probably had affairs with a few of their wives and/or husbands.

In short, you would be drowning in resources and power, if you weren't floating on them aboard a raft made of Class and Swag.

I'm only a murderous asshole to Xenos and stuff. Otherwise I am, to quote one NPC from our game, "the only man foolish enough to mistake being a Rogue Trader as a noble calling".

I am a stupidly idealistic servant of His Will who seeks to expand the Throne's influence into the Koronus expanse, for the security and prosperity of Humanity and the Imperium.

If I get fabulously rich, impressively famous and magnificently powerful in the process, well that is just a very swell benefit. One day I'm sure it'll end in tears, but until then I am gonna be a bid damn hero.
