Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay


About the adventure

"While the enemies of the Emperor still draw breath, there can be no peace." - Captain Gabriel Angelos For those in the Calixis Sector the enemy is breathing quiet well. No matter where you turn the Imperial Guard along with their Space Marine siblings are engaging in out right war with the enemies that are Within and Without. The Inquisition are fighting all of the covert enemies of the Empire. While the Rogue Traders are out there trying to find new planets and populations while trying to survive where the enemies do not fear to hide. This game is focused on a living breathing sector of space in the 40k universe where all of the game lines are able to exist at the same time. The Inquisition will effect what happens with the Space Marines, the Imperial Guard will effect the Rogue Traders. This game is effected by player choices, and if there is a healthy enough amount of players than players can be the enemies in the Black Crusade. This game is for those attracted to the idea of an active play style game for any of the lines for Warhammer 40,000. The active play style will be from the interaction throughout the week through discord, whether plot or social interaction with NPCs or PCs. The players' choices will effect the world whether for the better or worse.

How to prepare

Players do not need to prepare anything for the game.

What I provide

I will bring the rulebook. I will also supply a discord server devoted to the setting, and play even when I am not active.

Gameplay details

This game is a play by post game and considered to be active "24/7." Players can interact with one another at anytime on the server provided. The mechanics of this style game is relatively simple you will need a pair of percentile dice and you will have a difficulty number, you want to roll under that number and for every ten under the difficulty number is an additional success. A usual session will be devoted to solving problems that effect the Empire, whether through taking the preverbal hill or personal issues related to being in the Empire. The players' choices will effect the universe whether for the better or worse. Safety Tools: I use two major safety tools, X card and lines and veils, with weekly check ins. The X card can be used at any point if a participant is uncomfortable with the content happening in-game. When the X card is used by tapping the card or typing an “X” in the chat, the group can change, rewind, or skip the content. Lines: are subjects that are never brought up or into the game, any player may add to the list. The current lines are: Sexual Assault of any kind. Veils: are subjects that are alluded to but never directly brought up or into the game, any player may add to this list as well. The current veils are: domestic abuse. Weekly Check Ins: is where I ask the group before each game if there is any Lines or Veils that the players would like to add to the list whether on a permanent basis or temporarily considering life happens and we are not fully active in each other's life.

How will character creation work

The system does not have a level system in the normal sense, but characters will be considered beginners. If players wish to pre-make characters it would be appreciated, but needs to be confirmed by me. There will be pre-generated characters available, but I will assist in character creation if desired and there is time before the game.
