A new player has joined the fight!

Postby Paul Cordukes » Mon May 16, 2016 8:03 pm

Hey all!
I had a great time crewing Dark Deeds; a fantastic world with amazing people, and I'm now looking to get involved as a player.
Unfortunately my knowledge of 40K is rather basic and I can't say I know too much about what is going on, but I wouldn't mind representing that IC and learning the hard way.

That being said, I'm really looking forward to spending more events with you guys, and any help and advice would be oh-so appreciated!

Signing off,

Welcome aboard.

Plenty of IC excuses to play characters with limited knowledge of the setting what with planets that have been cut off from the rest of the galaxy for thousands of years like Avalon was at the weekend.

Totally what Steve says; I had bugger all knowledge about the 40K universe so started out as a wide-eyed innocent Navigator.

Even now I don't know much compared to the folks who play the tabletop or war game.

Have a good look through the rulebook and when you have an idea of what you'd like to play shout and folks will happily give you a hand.

I'm currently looking at a Guardsman-like character, since he doesn't have to have too much responsibility and I also adore the Mook-Among-Heroes narrative.
That, and they actually have a very helpful Uplifting Primer which tells them aaaaaall they need to know :D

Welcome! Always good to have new people :)

I believe there's a couple of groups looking for new folks to join them as well.

Oh the joys of discovering just how well the Primer lives up to reality beyond the Line :)

But yes always happy to offer a group space where the stars align.

For some lovely Imperial Guard propaganda, have a look: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=797 :-)

Ooooh thanks for the reading material. With pictures, no less :D

I'll definitely put out a LFG on the forum later on, I'm bound to find some pure and completely trustworthy comrades.

My advice from playing someone who started out as a guardsman.

Find an iconic guard regiment to be from and play them to the hilt and you'll have an awesome time. Ideally pick a planet that's in the system already as that will help you be invested and get involved quickly.

As an aside to the above: If there's any combination of established Imperial Guard regiment or historical military unit that you want to rip off, but that needs reworking to fit your concept, steal shamelessly and give it a new name. Add a unique twist or elements of something interesting if you have ideas, but originality is far less important than something that grabs you.
