Hey, all. Thanks for starting to move your PC sheets over and for keeping the formatting.

We are going to start fresh as far as health and fate points are concerned so, if it hasn’t been done already, refresh those.

Other than that, XP buys will still need to be approved so post them as a comment on your PC sheet as usual. Anyone have any questions?

I didn't get to update the Bastards today like I had planned which, in hindsight, was a bad idea as Tuesday and Wednesday are my busiest days. So, sorry about that. It is my goal for tomorrow.

Also, while it isn't required, Syl went ahead and justified his XP purchases based on what his PC went through in the previous chapter. It would be super cool if you guys would draw the in-game links to why you purchased whatever you did. Huge ups to Syl.

Of course, Mae and Wieramuaereu (I'll get the spelling down later) don't need to justify their purchases.

Guys, regarding XP the lowest I want anyone to be is 6,800. I see some discrepancies - especially in Rhone - with low XP. So everyone should AT LEAST be at 6,800. Make sure you are.

Also remember the XP format on PC sheets: (amount available to spend)/(amount spent); both should equal your total XP.

So: 100/400 means you have 100 to spend and have spent 400, making you a 500 XP character. Cool?

Computer broke recently and I lost my books. Any chance I can get a hand? All I need is OW for now, though I'll probably need DH2 as well at some point. Kisses

I have just gone through everyone's PC sheets and made adjustments to your gear. As you will see, the amounts of some items (like grenades and ammo) have been reduced to reflect the final boss battle on hervara and some items (like the respirators you got for hervara) have been taken off completely.

From an in-game sense, this reflects the fact that the final battle took its toll on your supplies and, more importantly, you no longer function as an Astra Militarum regiment with a steady supply stream. Standard Issue Gear is a thing of the past. From now on, you will have to rely on the quarter master the armsmen are assigned to for gear.

In a practical sense, I have seen a tendency toward gear-grabbing in this game and I am not super stoked about that. From now on, the struggle will be real. Your main weapons and past major acquisitions will remain, but having a ton of grenades, ammo, ordnance, and whatever is going to be tough from here on out. Of course, that can change but it all depends on how well your RP it (the opportunities you find/take advantage of and your ability to acquire shit). Sometimes things just will not be available, regardless of how well you rolled on whatever test. Not every place in the galaxy has a master crafted whatever-the-fuck. You feel me?

Essentially, I want more RP-riddled paths to getting the things you want rather than just finding a quarter master and rolling for ten tons of grenades. Seek out opportunities in-game. It'll be worth it (ie: Ruaidhri and Uallachan and the adepts).

Cheers!

Sorry about the delays, all. I am the discussant this week in my grad seminar, so at least until Tuesday don't expect much from me.

Sometime after that my aim is to get an update in. Hopefully Wednesday. Thanks for all the great roleplay up until now.

On hiatus, guys. We have some people out of town and I will be out all next week. So, right now we are running at like 25%.

I'll post a query for interest when I get back.

All right, party people. We have some hard decisions to make. One of the main issues I think plaguing this game that we all know and love is that real life is kicking some people pretty hard in the ass. Because this is a military-focused and styled game, it needs a clear-cut leader.

Traditionally, that was Mac_Tonite/Rhone. After that it went to the next in command, Azza/Artur. But both of them have had some real life things that take precedence over gaming. Sadly, this type of game relies on a clear leader to give orders and delegate to the squad.

In addition to this, I have noticed a lack of initiative on the part of players in non-leadership roles as far as posting goes. I don't know if this is because of the change of pace in the game, real life things, or lack of interest. I imagine it is a mixture of the three.

So, before we get to restarting this game, my lovechild, I need to know if people are still interested in playing it. If so, we need to figure out who is going to lead. Now, I am OK with not having a leader, but that means people will need to step up and take more initiative in their posts to get things done.

Having said all that, where is everyone's head/heart at concerning all of this?

I'm definitely still interested in playing this- it has always been an excellent game and I can't wait to see where it is going.

In terms of leadership- I'd hesitate to put Ruaidhri forward- he's always been a bit more of an agitator. Then again it could be interesting rp. Leadership might be the making of him.

What do you think about the leadership question Sylphilis? Would Bazin be up for it or would he support Ruaidhri as he leads everyone down with him?

There won't be any updates until this is addressed by everyone still interested in playing.

Wiremu could potentially step up. Could be a young up and comer.

Still want the game to go on for sure!

I am in. Stubb's could lead. If no one else will step in, he will do so. Maybe like he could act like he is getting orders from Rhone. That could explain his newfound leadership abilities. Then he could grow into it. I am down.

I like the sound of that, but until Stubbs gets back, someone is going to have to take over at the club.

Rook could step in to lead as well. Kind of in a usurper way. He's got the intellect to think he's the logical leader type when there is a vaccuumm. Whether or not the others will follow is a different story lol

In terms of the club group- there's no way Ruaidhri would let Neo take over without big kickback. Hasn't even fired a shot in anger yet. I'd be happy to put him forward for this.

Right. That is definitely another thing to consider, Nik. Wiremu isn't even a Bastard. He would need to put in some serious work to "take command" as it were. There would need to be a much softer approach narratively. Maybe giving really good suggestions that make sense that the group agrees on, rather than any type of orders or commands.

Yeah it would narratively make sense without an a person actually put in command as such there would be a bit of a power struggle with various Bastards trying to influence the group and lead them their particular way. I think on this space station we all have various things we want to do. Ruaidhri and Uallachan would be more keen in getting this servo skull for instance.

Rook and Stubbs could co-rule errr...be co-captains lol. With Rook subtly influencing Stubbs through fancy words or something. Or they could just be two best friends that anyone could have

Wiremu is with Stubbs anyways.

I was just saying, if nobody else wanted to step up, Wiremu could.

You're right in that it people wouldnt take to it though

I know I'm not part of this show yet and the point is perhaps moot while you're on the station, but couldn't whoever is going to be leader be enforced upon the bastards by your new 'employers'?

This would then bypass 'X would never buy it'.

Is the need for a new leader a stop gap or a permanent change? You can only hang on for a player so long and thats not to exclude them but perhaps they're demoted for whatever reason so its not a case of 'hey I'm back, move over stand in leader'.

My two pence as I'm eager to play Jules.

Well, we have six players still definitely in it to win it by my count:

Responded and Ready to Go:Nitafrong (Ruaidhri), Hydrako (Rook), Sylphilis (Bazin), Donqwaf (Wiremu), MrUozu (Stubbs), and Carnelian (Jules - not yet introduced).

Which means that we have a number out:

No Response: Murcurie (Karsith) and Azza (Artur).

Already Out: Mac_Tonite (Rhone) and Kimberlee (Mae).

Because our leadership is in the latter two categories and we have at least three PCs doing their own thing, someone in each group will need to step up as a player and just make things happen. If we can all agree to that, then I can see starting this back up sooner rather than later.

Rook is away by himself with Wiremu and Stubbs in pursuit. I'm not sure how everyone else is split up back at da cluuuub though. Also, I'm in the Motherland (NZ) once again, and ready to get into some shenanigans.

General Announcement (Important):

I want to direct everyone's attention to the "Meeting Again for the First Time" thread/game. If you haven't read through it yet, you should. This is the type of role play I am looking to move towards in the future.

It is much more narrative based and player driven. For example, I had an encounter set up in which some shit was about to go down. Dave rolled a deceive test, however, and basically convinced the bad guys to fuck off without a shot being fired. This essentially unlocked an entirely new location and characters that I had not at all planned on having. But I want to reward good roleplay like that. Dave not only got some XP, but he also got some benefits he hasn't yet seen. Not to mention, there are now new NPCs to interact with.

This is what I would like the Bastards to become, but it does require more effort on the part of the players outside of point-shoot-repeat.

Give it a read and let me know what you all think. Remember, you're not in the Guard anymore. You're free agents hired out by an eccentric Rogue Trader. The Galaxy is your oyster.
