Yes, you are correct about what I am trying to do.

Sorry guys you're going to have to deal with that flamer. Simond has a severe aversion to being roasted alive.

Well I really did not wake up this morning expecting to write a description for de-gloving an Ork's arm with a chainsword.

Simond can filet a fish perfectly with that thing

Good job so far. Looks like you start to have the upper hand.

I hope I don't put you under too much pressure, but as we had a pretty fast pace so far: Bob, Easy E: do you want to post something for this "turn" or can I prepare the next post?


You might also have seen my topic opened on the question of "how loud are lasweapons anyway?". As it might come up in this RPG I would handle it the following way with solid projectile and Lasweapons:
normal projectile weapon: firing one can definitly be heard and the source can be made out accoustically. If you look in roughly the right direction you can see the muzzle flash, but not the travelling projectile
+ Silencer of normal quality (automatic in sniper rifle): The sound is equal to a loud clap and usually not missed, but it is hard to make out the source accustically. The muzzle flash is not visible
+ Silencer of good quality: the sound is even more silent and might be missed on a busy road/in the jungle at night (which is pretty loud), even when heard the exact source can usually not be identified
+ Silencer of best quality: the sound might be missed unless you are within 20 yards of the shooter


Lasweapons:
normal Lasweapon: the shot itself and therefore its source is clearly visible, The sound is equal to a loud clap and usually not missed, but it is hard to make out the source accustically.
+ normal "Supressor": the shot is not that easy to see (very narrow, little scattering), but if seen, the source is clear (straight line), sound as above
+ good "Supressor": as above, but only visible in UV/IR light, so one would need preysence googles/nightvision (which Xenos might have...), the sound is even more silent and might be missed on a busy road/in the jungle at night (which is pretty loud), even when heard the exact source can usually not be identified
+ best "Supressor": as above, but unless you really know the exact wavelenght, you should not be able to see the lasbolt, sound as above.


I don't know if that is perfectly sensible physically, but I would handle it that way as it leaves interesting choices when trying to do things "the sneaky way". I also want to say this now, so you know what to deal with and what you can expect from the enemies.

A question regarding reading of rules:

In the core book at page 243 on actions they write:
A character can take two different Half Actions on his turn instead of taking one Full Action.


Now english is not my mothers tongue. I read this as inclusive, so the two half actions CAN be different but don't have to. You can for example make two single, unaimed shots. Or do you think this is exclusive and both half actions MUST be different?

No, everything is perfect. I hope it was OK that I set my post instead of waiting for you?

I have spotty access to the forum over the weekends. The family and all wants my attention.... or something! LOL.

No problem. This "battle scene" is almost done and the next is more role-play heavy (talking, interacting with each others and NPCs), were it is less important for everyone to post an action every turn

I posted something for Njal, as he already is kind of in narrative time. The others can feel free to still hunt down the last fleeing Grots.

I will let a few others post before I add on to the cockpit story. Thanks!

@ all: it might have been unclear: 3 Grots run to the lower right on my map and can be shot at without endangering Simond (and the troopers at the ramp shoot at those) one runs to the lower left and can't sensibly be shot at, but is well within range of Simond.

So I assume Teodore just targets the group of three where he should be safe

There was also a battle in Game of Thrones (Battle of the Bastards) where the bad guy did that intentionally (fired on his own troops who were locked in melee) killing both sides in the process, but he had more soldiers so he came out ahead. The first thing I thought of when I saw that was...why didn't I ever do that back when I played Warhammer Fantasy battles?

hey Bob,

no problem, I can wait. I just wanted to avoid us waiting for each other due to a misunderstanding.

Sounds good to me. BTW I just got wrath and glory, when this game wraps up would anyone be interested in doing a game of that?

Looks very similar to only war just much more open ended frame work.

I'm all for it. Do you intend to GM yourself or should someone else?
This here is intended as an adventure with four scenes, the first is almost wrapped up.

If you are up for GMing that's fine with me! I'm still getting aquainted with the rule system so I wouldn't mind going through the player experience first.

I don't know that system yet, but I could have a look. As I'm GMing a lot with my PnP group at home, I'm always interested in trying out new systems, grab the rules I like and integrate them.

I think it's pretty decent.

I hear you though, I'm already running a Warhammer Fantasy RPG Game on Roll 20. GMing is a lot of work!

You could probably get a group together from these forums to do something on Roll20 though. The connection is pretty decent. We haven't had any big issues with audio quality and it can automate some of the stuff pretty well.

@ Easy E: I will likely post later that day or tomorrow. Feel free to just roll a couple of Tech rolls (+10 easier everytime, so +0, +10, +20) until he succeeds. I just need to know how man tries he needs.

Woot, woot! We got through scene 1 alive, and I feel pretty good about the characters we made, the way we handled it, and system!

For the Emperor!
