Oh wow. I don't have my book with me. I just assumed interrogation was listed and DDMW took it 3 times. That's insane. My apologies gentlemen. I'm an asshole.

HI SORRY IM TAKING SO LONG!
A now former coworker took a steaming shit all over my weekend and I haven't been able to do much except work, sleep, work, sexually satisfy Reverendfixxxer, work, sleep etc.
I have read up to the specialties and I'm really enjoying it so far. I've talked with Matt some about creating an Apothecary in the Black templars. Fanatical PRAISE BE THE EMPEROR BITCHES.
Actual stat block will come some time this week *hopefully*.

I wouldn't want to tell anyone you're not an asshole. That's my favorite thing about you! ;)

But skills are really the area I feel least sure about, so I just want to be sure. I did see that there definitely some talents (and probably some skills) that require a rank higher than 1 to purchase. It looks like a Black Templar can purchase Interrogate either earlier or more cheaply than other chapters. The 1000 XP doesn't go that far, so part of my motivation was to spend as little time as possible on this for the moment, so take a look at the Chapter specific skills and if I did it wrong, let me know.

If my assessment is worth anything, I've got you as being good on skills, so long as D&F isn't handicapping you in some way because of the wonky Chapter/Specialty choice. Invocation is a Rank 1 librarian option at 400xp and as I mentioned before, Interrogation, Interrogation +10 and Interrogation +20 are all available at Rank 1 as a Black Templar at 200xp each, so you've effectively spent your 1000xp on legal skills.

I'm heading home now and I'll look it all over once there.

The one problem I can see right now (hopefully tomorrow we can go over everything with a fine tooth comb) is that you have Hatred (Psykers) listed in your talents, and if I am not mistaken that costs 500 xp that you don't have. Where is that coming from?

And your weapon damage is listed incorrectly for your bolt pistol. Again, we are going by the Living Errata and not the CRB for weapon stats.

Hatred (Psykers) comes from my Power Armour History (roll of 10).

I'll update Bolt Pistol based on living errata soon.

OK cool. I am crashing now. Get on Gchat if you can tomorrow (my tomorrow) and we can line by line this bitch once more. But it is looking pretty good. Some formatting issues. Nothing super serious.

Here is the custom chapter I made for female Astartes for this setting. Let me know what you all think.

Charming.

You don't need to roll power armor history or past event if you see something that fits your character.

As far as the good read, thank you, Matt. I put work into that bitch. And here is the kicker, the first comment says, "I think this is a bit sexist" - in reference to the Primarch's Curse. My response, "Can't be anymore sexist than not allowing females to play Space Marines at all, right?" Fucking people. Everyone is a critic.

Well I would like to make a Ultra Marine Apothecary, who is good at melee but also can be the leader of the kill-team if necessary. Hopefully you guys know you can plug any rolls you make for skills in any order you want.

Hey, there is currently no room at the Inn, amigo. This game is full.

However, the Angels of Death game will be up and running soon hopefully. Scanman has backed out, but there is word that Mac Tonite will be taking over. There is no tentative date for when this will happen, but it should eventually happen indeed. You can save these rolls if you want (in other words, I won't delete your post) for that game, or you can roll a new character. But all of the threads under the "Deathwatch" heading pertain specifically to the currently full game that I am running.

All other details for Angels of Death will be posted under that thread as they come about.

Again, you can always opt to run a game. You have the necessary tools. I realize that you have expressed a lack of confidence in this regard, and that is cool, but running a game might be a really good experience. Who knows?

I thought this was a place to gather ideas for characters in general..

Negative. Everything under the main thread Deathwatch is in reference to the specific game that I am running. As I never thought another Deathwatch game would occur on this forum, I didn't think to change the name to something a little less vague. I see how this can be confusing. But when the time comes, whoever is running the Angels of Death game will post a "Character Ideas" thread in that particular thread. I do believe, however, that a "Character Ideas" thread already exists in that thread.

So, to recap, every link under the "In Depth Roleplay" sub-heading is a link to a particular/individual game. That's why the Angels of Death game and my Deathwatch game are separate links and not contained within one another.
