I'm leaving those up to you, since we need to roll for those, and all rolling is done by the GM ;).

Which reminds me, did you get around to rolling for my character's stats and mutation, or should I go ahead and do that?

@Demonslayer: All right DS you have the "Eyes Dark as the Void" mutation. This grants you dark sight.

@Xath: I have given you two Bolt pistols and a falchion with the mono edge upgrade. This list ain't perfect but I'll fix it as we go along.


Player Name: Xath

Character Name: Icarus Bane

Home World: Prys' World (Imperial World)

Career Path: Arch-militant Rank- 1

Motivation: Vengeance

Quote: “The taste of battle is sweet upon my tongue. I desire far more. Wherever Master Hasarian sheds blood, I shall follow”

Description: As an Ex-Guardsmen of the Prys 152 Light Infantry,  You are a well trained, deadly, stone-cold killer. No remorse, no pity, (& almost) no fear. Fanatically loyal to Hasarian.

After your friends were killed in a friendly fire incident, you were released from the Regiment to pursue them. The Honour of a Regiment of Prys is paramount above all else!

Using your blood thirsty nature and tracking skills, you have discovered the scum are hiding in the Kronus Expanse. You joined Hasarian's crew in the hope of finding them.

Also, back up never hurts!

TALENTS AND SPECIAL RULES-

Combat Formation: Icarus can direct comrades to be prepared for danger. Before rolling initiative, any group involving "Bane Guy" can choose to use his Intelligence Bonus (4) for all initiative rolls rather than their individual Agility bonuses. Remember that "Bane Guy" (and only "Bane Guy"!) gains a +2 bonus to him initiative when using (Basic Weapon) in combat.

Writers note:
The three most important things to know about playing Icarus are:

your chosen weapon, (Name Weapon)

• You have the Medicae Skill and possess some talent and sewing
up wounds.

• You live for the thrill of battle and enjoy the hot-blooded rush




@ Everyone: Right, the ships O&H are- "A Nose for Trouble" & "Death Cult", If you would be so kind as to add this too the Ships list Demonslayer?



Right we are ready for play! I'll post the IC Thread soon.

Well that should an interesting mix for the ship. Deathcult could lead to some fun roleplay, and nose for trouble some classic dwarf fortress style 'fun'.

That's my character sheet, yes, but you still need to roll 2d10 for each Characteristic (and 1d5 for wounds, 1d10 for fate, and 1d10+1d5 for insanity :).

Let me know if the pace of the story is going to slow, I can speed it up. These FFG stories are always slow to start.

EDIT: Btw, is everyone ok with Hasarian's character, the way he acts etc?

Good luck mate, nothing to worry about! I've had it done myself a couple of times now (either with water or suction) and it isn't really a big deal or anything :).

Interested to see what direction Hasarian is taking us in!

Warrant Power:

Warrant Age: The Forging
Fortune: Stable
Acquisition: Administratrum Trade Mandate
Sanction: Meritech Wars
Contact: Adeptus Mechanicus
Warrant Renown: Unknown

Ship Points: 56
Profit Factor: 36

The rogue trader's dynasty was founded during the Forging, a time of exploration and reconquest, in which the Hasarrian house supported countless efforts to regain what was lost during the Horus Heresy. Its mandate came directly from the Administratum, with the purpose of establishing new trade routes with systems far removed from Holy Terra. For this, the house is well respected among its peers, and has enjoyed great stability over the millenia, as it can call upon ancient pacts and allies in its time of need.

As a dynasty founded during an age of rediscovery, it is no surprise house Hasarrian has close ties with the Adeptus Mechanicus. Exchange of information concerning newly discovered systems allowed both parties to profit; the Explorator fleets passed on the location of systems interesting to the rogue traders, and vice versa. This partnership has continued to this day.

One would think such a prestigious house to have great renown, but in truth, the stability of the House allows it to play a fairly minor role in today's political arena. Where lesser Houses are quick to voice their opinions simply for the sake of being heard, house Hasarrian is secure in its position, and nominally tries to stay away from the upstarts trying to drown each other out. As a result, house Hasarrian is relatively unknown to outsiders, and even among some of the newer Rogue Trader dynasties.

Those who remember the Hasarrian dynasty, however, remember it first and foremost for its role in the Meritech Wars. During this time the house's fleet joined the military campaign aimed at the eradication of all life in the rebellious Merates Cluster. To this day, the ruthlessness with which the Harassian dynasty operated during that conflict gives pause to any would-be rivals.

For those of you who are interested in the Meritech Wars...

THE MERITECH WARS
In the early years of the third century of M.41, the Calixis Sector faced a threat capable of destabilising the entire region.
In the dark void between the Calixis and Ixaniad Sectors was to be found a small cluster of a dozen or so worlds, ruled by the scavenging Meritech Clans. In 211.M41, the clans declared their secession from the Imperium, and began to amass sizable military might which they deployed against the interests of both of the neighbouring sectors.

The Imperium’s response was to launch an overwhelming assault upon the worlds of the Merates Cluster, smashing the
home worlds of the Meritech Clans. The Sector Governess Myram Harvala mustered a great force, which in addition to the
Imperium’s armies, included a number of Rogue Trader Houses.

Many of these Houses were newly raised, their Warrants of Trade granted thanks to the sponsorship of the Governess, on
the condition of their aid in the forthcoming war.
The ensuing conflict raged for seventeen years, and saw the complete eradication of all life from the worlds of the Merates
Cluster. The Meritech Clans fielded all manner of heretical technology, later found to have been supplied to them by a
heretical tech-cult known as the Logicians. The Rogue Traders were at the forefront of much of the fighting, and although
a great many of them were never to emerge from the wars, many others established the fortunes of future generations,
acting as ruthless and highly dependable mercenaries for the Governess.

Such dynasties are opportunist in nature, highly mercenary and able to bring to bear formidable military force in the pursuance of their fortunes.
