    Also, by the way, Happerry, there's the Cyber-Mastiff Handler alternate career in the Book of Judgement, and the Factor of the Lathes alternate career in The Lathe Worlds. There's no real downsides to either (beyond, perhaps, the fact that they use a different advancement table, but even then they both give back at least as much as they lose). I'd recommend checking them out; the Cyber-Mastiff Handler gets a pretty cool robo-dog, and the Factor of the Lathes gets a bunch of social bonuses (because they don't look like hideous robot-people).

    Also, a Mono-Greataxe costs 110 Thrones, does 2d10+Strength bonus damage with a Penetration of 4, and looks totally bitching with the Mechanicus skull inscribed on it. ;)

    Hm, Tech Priest, Scum and investigatory Arbite seem like they have quite a bit of overlap. Maybe I should switch over to something else.

    Not really. The Tech Priest has the technical skills (and maybe some tracking skills if he goes for Cyber-Mastiff Handler), you've got the "find out information" skills, and I've got the social schmoozing skills. We've all got at least some combat skills, if in different fashions; you're rocking a shotgun, I'm duel-weilding pistols, and the tech-priest's rocking an axe and eventually a bunch of strength-and-toughness-boosting cybernetics, while the Feral World Guardsman's got skill and berserk fury for his melee.

    So, how is it going for you? There is no problem? Or something you want to ask?

    We only have two posted sheets I can find, unless someone PMed theirs to you instead of posting it, I'd think it's more the time to start poking people to see if they actually want to play.

    Sorry, I want to play. I just haven't had access to an untracked- computer for the past few days. College Orientation. Still, I'm free again so willing to play.

    Edit: If we do play, should we have some specific time to be here? Otherwise I don't see any games as being possible. Because we will almost never end up with everybody present.

    Time... Somewhere around 18:00 to 23:00 would be good. As I live in Sweden, that's GMT+1 (or, UTC+1), I'm not sure what time it's for you. If that does not work, we could see if other times work better.

    The nature of PbP games is slow, but you don't have to have everyone get together at a certain time.

    I expect it to be slow regardless. I just figured that if we are posting within a couple of hours of each other, things will be more coherent.

    Go ahead and put me on the back-up list I guess.

    I promise you, I will seldom if ever have any idea what I am doing!

    I mean, just to start, I have no idea what much of that character sheet above means. Izzat good?

    Well, to start, it's unfinished. You still have all 400 of your starting XP to spend. And all your starting cash to buy gear with.

    As for is it good.. this system is a roll under system. As in, you roll a 1d100 and try to get under your (Relevant Stat+Relecant Skill), with every iteration of ten you are under being an additional degree of success, and every iteration of ten you roll over your target number being an additional degree of failure. 30s in things that will be important to you seems to be about average, and with an agility close to 40 that's pretty shiny.

    Right there with you, Chibi. I just punched in what looked interesting in the tg character generator.

    BTW Should I reroll my tarot as I got a mutation or do you want to roll for it?
    Because picking and chosing there would be a bit to easy after all.

    You can either roll for the mutation or reroll the divination.

    Invisible castle or the local diceroller? As the Tg generator after all has no feature for that and is to easy manipulated in regards to divinations.

    I prefer to use the local one (mostly because I've never used Invisible castle), but you can chose whichever you like.

    Because the Tech-Priest is still low-level, and hasn't had the opportunity to start stacking cybernetic implants to turn himself into a superhuman cyborg capable of rivalling a Space Marine in sheer physical capability and killing potential.

    As I am still in the wings I was wondering in regards to my question to the psi sanction ie chosing or rolling it here.

    And any preferences for the psi abilitys?

    You mean for the trait "Sanctioned Psyker"? You roll for that one.

    Psychic Powers? With WP 40 you get two Minor Psychic Powers. They can be found at page 165 in the core book (those are the pages of the physical book, can't access my pdf-version at the moment). And you can chose any you want. As long as the rules allows it.
