Character construction

Post  Admin on Thu Jan 14, 2010 6:52 pm

I would like to put a soft character creation deadline of Tuesday, 1/26/2010 because I will be inserting character sheets into maptools, so for my sanity I'd like to have a couple days to dedicate to that task.

Character construction for this campaign will be done on these forums. You need to comunicate with other members of the group to determine what the best group makeup will be. As well there are many "One per group" advantages you all need to share them. If you have one of the packages you need to let others take pick of other limited items before you do, mainly as a courtesy.

The Character creation is a first come first serve. If you want a certain package you can call it in this topic, however you still need to be quick about your character creation.

Characters Will be built on a premade template that you may add to with a select number of packages, items, skills, and advantages.


One other note if anyone does not want to create a character I can prebuild one for you. All you gotta do is show up!

74 LBS equipment


Basic Lift (BL)
see Lifting ST (p. 65)
Basic Lift is the maximum weight
you can lift over your head with one
hand in one second. It is equal to
(STXST)/5 lbs. If BL is 10 lbs. or more,
round to the nearest whole number; e.g.,
16.2 lbs. becomes 16 lbs. The average
human has ST 10 and a BL of 20 lbs.
Doubling the time lets you lift
2xBL overhead in one hand.
Quadrupling the time, and using two
hands, you can lift 8¥BL overhead.
-----
Encumbrance and Move
“Encumbrance” is a measure of the
total weight you are carrying, relative
to your ST. The effects of encumbrance
are divided into five “encumbrance
levels.” All but the lowest level
will reduce your actual Move to a
fraction of your Basic Move and give a
penalty to Dodge, as follows:

No Encumbrance (0): Weight up to
Basic Lift. Move = Basic Move. Full
Dodge.

Light Encumbrance (1): Weight up
to 2xBL. Move = Basic Move ¥ 0.8.
Dodge -1.
Medium Encumbrance (2): Weight
up to 3xBL. Move = Basic Move x 0.6.
Dodge -2.
Heavy Encumbrance (3): Weight up
to 6xBL. Move = Basic Move x 0.4.
Dodge -3.
Extra-Heavy Encumbrance (4):
Weight up to 10xBL. Move = Basic
Move x 0.2. Dodge -4.

Drop all fractions. Encumbrance
can never reduce Move or Dodge
below 1.
Note that these levels are numbered
from 0 to 4. When a rule tells
you to add or subtract your encumbrance
level from a die roll, this is the
number to use. For instance, encumbrance
gives a penalty to Climbing,
Stealth, and Swimming skills.

What kind of Font are you using there in the Equipment section?
It doesn't work for me.
Also, the points remaining thing: So its remaining 52base positives and a maximum of 12 more negatives.
Man, this might take a while of juggling.

Ah no, I can read most of it just, for example:

Designed for Heavy armor combatants and Medium vehicles

The stuff before "Designed" is not legible to me.

Is it ok if we get together and decide as a squad who brings what, it wouldn't be productive or honorable to the emperor to bicker over who gets to bring the autocannon, or carry his banner. Also did I read right only one person can have carapace armor?

Edit: my mistake I missed the misc section, does that have the same rule as heavy weapons i.e. limit one per squad?

It is encourages to talk it out here. hence the creation of the forums so you all have an outlet to decide who has what civilly.

Now saying this. This applies to equipment do not discuss your character stats. I want to steer away from metagaming if I can you would know if your squadmate has a plasma gun but not so much that they have a 16 in first aid, you would know that they are "pretty sufficient in first aid" though.

Misc unless noted is no limit. However yes there is one heavy weapon and one special weapon in a squad. Mind you an autocannon is heavy to lug around.

I'm willing to take the marksman, communications officer, or techmarine adept packages, I'll wait and see how many others are going to be in the squad before I make my final decision
Also will we have any intel on what we could be encountering before we actually get into battle, if we're going up against eldar we'd prolly want someone with an auspex and a heavy bolter, if its orks, the autocannon and flamers, close weapons. If its chaos big guns and long range, also if we know the location where we will be fighting plains, mountains, city, hive, spaceship.

Ah thats the rub, you all have to design your squad to be versatile. You have your choice of the gear, but you will be informed of your deployment after training(character creation). The maps and scenario are already set so I won't change it to trick y'all may even add a few things to help based on what is chosen.

You are playing as Cadian guardsman so it limits the area you fight to a few enemies -although still very diverse- The areas that cadia keeps watch over fight Chaos from the eye of terror, several ork tribes, Tyranid splinter fleets, Ancient necron tombs on dead worlds, Ulthwe craftworld eldar, Dark eldar pirates. Most likley the theaters will look like various city scapes and wasteland/plains. Probobly won't deal with death worlds on this one.

Currently we have 2(3 including you Seven) garunteed players, we also have Re'o and Jackofalltrades, but do not know if you both are committed or not

I think Daniel(Firebreed when he signs up on the forums) wants a heavy weapon position.

Assuming I realize how this works, I'll take the priest package. I would also really like to take a chainsword, laspistol, and bionics (left arm). I also assume talking about which advantage you'd want to take would fall under the metagaming rule?

On a side note, are we allowed to make our own player tokens? Assuming we're using circle/square tokens rather than "top down", of course.

Telling advantages would probably be metagaming if it was an advantage one person could take and it benefit the entire squad so another person wouldn't have to take it. Otherwise if its character specific like, "Duty: Eclessiarchy" or "Badass" go ahead and tell, it will go a long way to figuring out how to interact iwth teh squadmates, just don't give away any quirks or...interesting disadvantages such as "Chaos-Tainted" or "Broad-minded" or if you are a cultist or xeno huggger.

Also, is our squad required to have a seargent I'm curious what will happen if no one takes that package, (heres to hoping for dmpc that gets killed in the first firefight so we can take all his gear)?

You can call out advantages you would share with squad mates, if there is something you'd be inclinded to keep hush hush do so before hand (IE if you have psychic abilities you would not want to share it as it could mean execution to be an unsanctioned psyker) However the squad will obviously know you are the squad comms officer or have a bionic arm.

You can say what skills you have, but giving a number is a no-no. IE say you are good at first aid, not you have first aid-15 (In game or during construction)

You can use your own token if you have one, I have about 20 guardsman tokens for use. If you want your own use a picture with a circular frame made in rptools.net 's tokentools and send it to me.

No package is required, I will deal with any required squad members that are not filled.

Encumbrance

Post  Admin on Tue Jan 19, 2010 5:29 pm

Make sure to check out the encumbrance rules I added from pages B15 and B17. Carrying your entire field kit at ST 11 puts you at Heavy Encumbrance( (3): Weight up to 6xBL. Move = Basic Move x 0.4.
Dodge -3.) So be weary of this when moving into combat Military gear can get heavy! other than sprinting rules I may let you buy some of this off expending Fatigue points. Exactly how I do not know. You can leave some of the gear on the ground, however when you need it...

Added on the Guardsman equipment post near the beginning of this topic now includes item weight. The purchasable gear has its weight listed on the Excel sheet in the Added Docs topic.

Alright, thanks for posting equipment weight too. I was curious about that. I'll call out my advantages and skills (sans numbers etc of course) when I've actually made my character. Also I hope this token I made is ok. I put it in huddle.net.

Now, since my character template requires powerblow, would taking weapon master for the preq. of that skill be correct?

I decided that I will take the Vox Comms officer package, over and out.
Is it alright if I'm a Valhallan that's been transferred?

Vox Comms officer 8 points
o 5 points into
Electronics – Communications
Electronics repair
o Communications Vox
Can send and receive messages between HQ
Can call to any one in the squad
Allowed a single artillery strike per game

Minor questions about this package, when it says Vox comms officer, do I subtract 8 points from my current total?
And do I put 5 points into both skills or divy 5 points between the 2?

Well with power blow more the purchase of the package can cover that if you are using gca just omit the weap mast advantage. also as a measure you can only add up to 5 points, A note on that is you need atleast one purchased level into a melee skill(so the free level of knife in the template doesnt count) however the points in melee do not count against your 5 points meant to have that seperate

And ill mark you as comms officer, ya, if you all have a back story you can use it as long as it fits cannon. However all guardsmen considering their usually short term of service you'd still be fairly fresh from training perhaps some rebellion quelling, sentry, or recon tours of duty.

you buy the package like an advantage that gives you the communication vox and the ability to spend up to a total of 5 points into the offered skills.

Even more questions...
If I were to take an auspex, what kind of electronics skill would I need? Sensors?
Can we buy up extra skills with remaining points or are we restricted to our template skills?
Are we allowed to buy up attributes, I personally would be interested in increasing IQ for my character.
Will there be a chance to do any driving or piloting, would our squad have access to a Chimera or a Russ or even a Baneblade Smile?!?

In regard to the electronic roll, considering its the only piece of equipment that needs that roll. I will say any electronics or mechanics roll will work, or soldier-2 as its a piece of equipment that may have come up in basic training.

Pump your stats as much as you want with the points you have.

I doubt too much combat driving will happen in this campaign, support craft may make appearances.(Takes time to balance heavy armor)

Without a package the following are what you may include, if you have another skill you''d like pm me and give me a justification for the skill. I may even add it for everyone to use (I am not perfect I may have missed a common military skill)

o You may add or improve any of these skills
Brawling
Climbing
Fastdraw – Pistol
Fastdraw – Knife
Fastdraw – Rifle
Fast talk
First Aid
Soldier
Survival – Urban
Survival - Wasteland
Search
Scrounge
Broad sword
Chainsword
Bayonet
Throwing
Thrown weapon - knife
Guns (Pistol)
Guns (rifle)
Observation
XenoKnowlege
•Having knowledge from pre-training(or previous battle theatre) of a specific group (not all may come into play this is a background skill)
o Eldar (Includes Dark Eldar)
o Chaos
o Ork
o Tyranid
o Other-Specify-

I hope the questions aren't bothering you, is it possible for one of us to be an Ogryn?
Could some of us have genetic enhancements if we're veterans of previous tours of duty, a la Kasrkin?
How many shots are in a lasgun power cell, a heavy bolter magazine, a plasma gun cell, and a grenade launcher?
Will we need to worry about tiny details such as it's morning eat breakfast or take a -2 FP penalty, or is the ad nauseum implied?
Regarding the ventrilo do you want us to talk in character and type OOC stuff?
Just curious but if there were a chaos tainted guardsman in our squad and if we have a psyker that doesn't detect him, could the guardsman be corrupt enough to earn a gift from the chaos guards a la mutation or a power?
Also in regards to the psyker, if there is one, on a critical failure is there a chance he will be possesed or killed by daemons?
Finally, out of curiosity are female characters allowed?

Edit: Can we take the luck advantage for 15 points, which allows to reroll something twice and take the best of the 3 scores, or force someone attacking you specifically to reroll 3 times taking the worst, once per hour of session time, i.e. if we started at 1:00 and I used luck at 1:01, I'd only be able to use it again at 2:01.
