Played my first game of RT

The mechanics are ok, but the game itself is awesome. Spacebattles, xeno fights and turning the bridge into an Italian restaurant are all what I wanted in Sci-fi setting

Well here is the crew of the Ambition Class Cruiser "Nothing"

-Rogue Trader is basically Captain Kirk that dresses like Freddy Mercury. He charms his way to victory

-Astropata (O how ever it is named) he is "Super Green"

-Missionary a Charming and intimidating female version of Charlie Sheen with a love for flamers. For some reason an X number of men and women oil her up before she puts her power armor.

-Navegator a decent navegator, she has a huge ego and pride about her powers and fashion sense. Also she tends lock herself up in her bunker chamber when ever a battle starts.

-Voidmaster he does one thing right, blow the fuck up of enemy vessels other than that he is a drunk and angry bastard.

-Arch-Militant he loves his costume built Bolt Pistols and Bolt weapons in general, rarely miss and the crew would follow him to the eye of terror himself. He bought 6000 bolt pistol.

There is no freaking Tech-priest and none of them has tech-use. That ship runs on faith, charm and intimidation, but mostly Charm.

As >>25248529 stated, my next game is going to be Tau and Dark Eldar. The players will be a deniable strike team whose job is to finish a secret project their employer is too lazy to finish. I've posted the file for the Tau Cadre Fireblade, Tau Pathfinder, Tau Combat Engineer, Kabalite Warrior, and Wych Careers for consideration and balance concerns (I think I'm up to v4 now).

I have V4 right now. The only change from V3 is Pilot (Spacecraft) is now a starting skill (for the purposes of the miniseries), instead of a skill to purchase, since I didn't like the concept of a skill tax. The Kabalite can boost his Pilot really fucking fast now.

Blah. Also why no jump packs on the stealth suits?

There wasn't very much I did with them.

1) Switch any advance track you want to the Cheap one (100-250-500-750). Naturally, some chose BS.
2) EWT can be taken for ANY weapon, not just Ork weapons. (This allowed them to get high damage high ROF weapons)
3) Allow Ork Upgrades to be applied to non-ork weapons. (This caused supercharged monstrosities like the Grav Repeater and the Wavebuster.)

Seriously. I think that was the extent of the changes I made there.


I'm actually considering using XV-22 Armor to replace the XV-05 armor currently there.

And the Stealth Suit DOES have a jetpack. Note it grants the Flyer 12 trait.

Honestly, the only things holding me back from XV-22 armor is the fact that on tabletop its model is T4, which is the same as an XV-8. This means Unnatural Toughness x2. Unless I fix the TB in the armor at a set value, I'm not seeing how I can add this (and make whoever gets it the God class).

Our party composition:

>Rogue Trader (deceased), a former eversor assassin who managed to piss off some space marines by not thinking at all before speaking about some strange happenings on the ship.

>My character, a techpriest who served in an Imperial Guard regiment but was deemed unworthy to migrate to Mars after his regiment was wiped out. Turns to the bottle to forget the horrors of war, while desperately searching for an STC or something of similar importance to take to Mars. Managed to forge a new Warrant of Trade/transference of power at GM's behest after our RT managed to get his stupid ass killed in the second session.

>Kroot mercenary who wears obscuring clothes in such a way that most people can't tell they're working with a filthy xeno but notice some strange things like an odd gait, unusual fighting style, etc.

>Arch-Militant with wonky cybernetic implants and refuses to use guns, despite having a robot arm that flails all over the place. Thinks the techpriest wants to give her the D, but really he just wants to give her the servo-arm.

>Vindicare (the first Rogue Trader's replacement) who was assigned to a Blood Angel Death Company squad but somehow got separated and crash-landed on a Deathworld 20 years ago, and then hitched a ride in one of our shuttles.

>Seneschal who also stowed away on our ship by disguising himself as an officer of a PDF platoon we were sent to extract.

>And finally, the Navigator, who in spite of my orders, decided to throw us into the warp without activating the Gellar Field. The GM's having so much fun with us now.

We're not 100% sure how feasible/Mary Sue-ish our characters are, but eh, the galaxy's a big place, and we like fun.

I seem to be the only one having a problem with people just hitching rides onto the ship and the Kroot seems to love going lolrandumb, but otherwise the campaign's been going pretty smoothly.

Just don't use the table top to balance unless you have to.

Alternatively, give it lots of weapons like the one in Dark Crusade along with the stealthfield.

Everything in the file so far has been extracted from codex, and I want to try and match as close as possible. The only thing I can think of is to make it Happy Meal version, and give it slightly nerfed abilities.For instance, f I give it a full Stealth Field, it makes the Pathfinder's Stealth Armor redundant.

Then again, I also need to make sure that it stands at an equal footing to the other careers, especially the Dark Eldar. I don't want whoever's playing DE to feel punished for not picking a Tau class.

Reading that packet, Pathfinder right now is the "God class" thanks to its toughness debuff. It's only bare equal is the Kabalite with its dodge debuff. Whoever gets the XV-22 armor (Fireblade might deserve it) will get boosted to their level.

>Solid head, witty and suitably curious. 40k nut for the past 20 years and as such his character is played pretty well.
Infernus pistol and power sword.

>Old explorator fleet veteran. Just got his first mechadendrite (backpack claw). Loves tinkering and abhors abuse of the machine spirit. Servo skull 'Klightus' is a total hero.

Arch Militant
>Flame thrower. Despises chaos and xenos. Strategist on numerous levels, insists on a retinue of guards and has the Captains safety as his top priority. Shot himself in the arm when something 'latched on'.

It's a very 'roleplay' party, and the three of them connect really well together. It's meant I have to think out of the box a bit as they aren't your typical 'herpderphero'.
