So as everyone already knows, Dark Heresy 2 came out like a week ago. Since nobody wants to run a game, I'll run one for everyone.

I'm looking for four poor saps to test out DH2 with me. Don't expect anything serious - this one-shot will be primarily a series of road tests that will be used to learn the system. That said, there will be a semblance of plot, to keep your sanity together. Expect odd things to happen - for example, you may gain XP in the middle of the session to test out things like Talent Trees, or face enemies designed to try out different aspects of combat. Expect things to take a little longer than normal, as we're all going to be new at the system, and referencing new rules will take a bit. I advise a healthy amount of patience for this game!

I'm looking to run the game some time next week, in the afternoon EST. While I'd like to run the game Monday or Tuesday, if people have better suggestions, I'm open.

I don't have any special requirements for the game this time - if you're interested, send an email to [email protected], stating your time-slot availability for the one-shot. I'm hoping we can get some good data to share with the rest of /tg/, as well as a god-awful clusterfuck of a story to share.

I'm totally new to the game but I'd love to join if I can. Yuro timezone though.

Well, if we start early enough, you should be able to participate in the game (For example, if everyone's clear for a game at 2pm EST, that translates to about 9pm in Yuroland).

In fact, 2pm EST would be preferable for me.

For those interested, I reiterate - just send an email with the times (and time zones) and I'll keep everyone updated.

For now, follow the rules in the book to the best of your ability. Should the process prove...difficult, or there are inconsistencies in character generation, the issue can be resolved on game day. This is, after all, the point of the one-shot. I myself am still reviewing the intricacies of the system.

The new system is completely and utterly incompatible with the previous five lines. It introduces new things like an action economy, and ports over an Influence system boosted or hampered by Subtlety. The Investigative portion is also reworked to a Clue / Lead system.

You're more than welcome to ride the trainwreck with us!

Mine was a Firebomb.

Fire is a bitch in oldschool DH. Especially when it bounces off the doorframe right back into our faces when we're attempting to breach a room all tacticool like.

Many Fate Points were burnt that combat.

We had one character who spent nearly his entire budget on grenades. It was all fun and games until he took a melta to the chest in an enclosed space. We narrowly avoided a TPK, with our guardsman dead due to a terminal case of head-lacking (not to mention the bits of the body the head took with it), our SoB missing an arm and severely burned, our psyker mostly unscathed apart from a shitton of tiny shrapnel wounds and a broken arm, and our techpriest concussed, missing both legs, an eye, and a hand. Cue cyborgification, of course. The Sororita got some kickass roboarms, on which the techpriest mounted a mini-melta and a couple assorted . The techpriest, on the other hand, had a cyber-eyepatch targeting system, mechanical legs, an integrated power fist with which he crushed skulls and punched a Warboss to death, and a whole ton of Inspector Gadget style gizmos on all of the bits. He was a pretty cool guy.

Okay, just so everyone knows, the game is currently FULL.

However, if things change and people disappear / do not respond to confirmation emails, I'll go on through the list, so there's still hope for some of you.
