Questions, comments, concerns, and shooting the shit goes here. Theo and Nitafrong can start laying out their PC ideas and/or questions here.

There is currently no tentative start date, but it shouldn't be too long.

Awesome.

Well, whenever people / you have the time. There's mention of a Tau PC guide, which I'm not familiar with. Where might I be able to find this guide? Similarly, I'm probably going to need some assistance on character creation, given that it seems to be a mix of the old style career paths and newer aptitudes.


If people missed it, here's my post in the recruitment thread:

Hi all!

As I said on Line, (I just realised, there's so many puns open there), I'm pretty interested in a Tau game. And so, to get some conversation going for PC ideas, I'm leaning towards playing a Tau Breacher.

Tau Breachers were formed out of necessity, as the normal fire warrior units had trouble dealing with the cramped quarters of Imperial Hive Cities. Breachers are short ranged, high firepower units, designed to provide overwhelming force to key locations.

Given the normal method of warfare for the Tau doesn't usually involve getting close to the enemy, you can imagine the sorts of Tau that end up in the Breacher role. Some are overly aggressive, looking for the rush and thrill of close quarters brawling. Others see the Breachers as a tactical necessity, and therefore, their duty.

I'm looking to play a breacher, trained and used in Imperial Hives. They've seen too much, both Tau military losses, and human civilians slaughtered. Despite this, they believe in the Greater Good, and the superiority of Tau Culture, and know that there are unsavoury necessities involving in spreading the Greater Good. They'll do their duty, emphatically, even aggressively, if only to avoid the introspective questioning. Besides, they're sure that everything they've done, all of it has been necessary.

Theo, the Tau PC guide should be on its way to you know. The Tau don't follow "career paths" and the character creation is already super removed from standard RT PC creation.

I like your PC concept a lot. If you haven't already caught up on the game thread, please do so. There are a few ways I am thinking we can introduce your PC.

I will get the homebrew rules up soon and that will have the aptitudes you'll need. Basically you'll be a firewarrior build with slightly different gear. Aptitudes shouldn't change much. You could easily fill the slot of demo/security specialist as well if you wanted.
