So I'm interested into Black Crusade and wanted to hear /tg/'s thoughts. The game seems really highpowered, more so than RT(though I did like RT) and the splashbooks archtypes seem to push that even more.
I was thinking about running a game with only humans on a Hive World based of Turn-of-the-Century New York. Anarchists in the lower hives. Steel jaws of machinary, various scum cults.
What think? Thoughts on the system and idea?

BC is a system with some neat ideas, but suffers from absolutely atrocious editing and internal consistency. Entire portions of the BC core book were copy-pasted from RT, including references to "profit factor." And there's a ton of other anomalies and such that typically require a bit of houseruling to gloss over.

Did I mention that the BC character sheet is also missing two skills entirely?

That said, if you can gloss over or deal with the mechanical failings, its a pretty fun game. Though it does require a certain kind of party to get the most out of it. Namely one that's both willing and able to deal with inter-party conflict in a mature manner. Plus, playing a human requires you to think a bit outside the box to really be useful, since you'll likely never be as powerful in direct conflict as a CSM.

Also, the Flesh Shaper from ToE is exploitable as all fuck.

Yay they should be in segragated games. I don't get how they would even mingle

The general idea is that CSMs provide the combat monsters, while humies are more social/skill oriented. Not to mention that in any situation involving regular human/Imperial society, the CSMs are gonna be giant walking magnets for largely unwanted attention.

Thats another thing
I get the spy feel of the cultist but I'd need some good ideas if I did CSM

That's how it's SUPPOSED to be, until the 1kSon mind controls everyone and the Alpha Legionnaire summons 1d10 plot bums with his ability to find the next plot point.

And then the human Flesh Shaper makes an unstoppable army of unswervingly loyal minions by frankensteining together a bunch of underhive scum. Did I mention they're all 6 armed Spidermen with Unnatural Everything 6?

The characters themselves are high powered, but you have to take into account that in RT you start with a space ship, while in BC you do not.

I like how the two options they give are "Handwave it and suck off the GM for nice things" or "Buy books from another system to use in this one."

Here's an experiment. Take a hotdog. Cook it in the microwave for about 90 seconds. See how it burst? Take a needle and thread and stitch it back together into Frankenweenie. That's a 1ksons dong fleshcrafted back together. Except possibly even more horrifying.

Once I get into a BC game I'm going to be play a caster who works as the right hand / subordinate of a CSM. Go full caster and support the shit out of the CSM. Until it is time to betray the shit out of him to ascend to Daemonhood.

Cocks. That noise is the gun cocking. Which is basically a useless gesture at this point with gun technology the vast vast majority of guns are self cocking.

Ahriman didn't like how the Thousand Sons were getting all mutated because of worshiping Tzeentch, so he cast a big spell to make them stop mutating. It worked fine on all the real wizards, but everyone who wasnt wizard enough got turned to dust. Thats the story as I understand it.
