Space Hulk/Dungeon Crawler/Dark Souls Interest/OOC

Discussion in 'Role Playing' started by BadDo9, Aug 19, 2016.


  1. First off, there will be LOTS of lore-bending, as this is.. just not lore. The players will be as if they are playing a game, so out of character acting for a race is allowed, as well as no insta hate

    The premise here is going to be as if Space Hulk met a Dungeon crawler and had a 40k-baby, raised by Dark Souls. In essence, the characters will begin at the start of the whole thing outside their breaching torpedo. From there, they would travel down farther and farther until they reach the bottom of the derelict space station.

    Tzeentch will potentially play the role of Zot (if you get the reference, good on you) as each level of the station could potentially be the metal construct you would expect, a forest, a swamp, and who knows what else. Or maybe Zot will be here, who knows?

    The players will begin as nearly-naked humans/eldar/tau with a rusty knife and angry-flashlight pistol. Along the way they will have to slay enemies and gather loots and bling. As well, there will be altars to various gods (Emperor, Primarchs, Omnissiah, various Eldar Phoenix Lords, Gork/Mork, and so on) Sacrificing loot at the altar of your choice will gain or lose you favour depending on what it is. And the god with whom you have the most standing will give you bonuses (E.G, shrine of the Primarchs turns you into an Astartes with Scout Armor, able to use SM items, but you lose favour if using Xenos items) and at certain milestones, they can gain a choice of specializing (Devastator or Assault) as well as a random artefact (Loreness not guaranteed)

    Combat Rules
    The combat will be narrative. The enemies and limits of attacks will be listed at the end of the post. As well, player-made attacks or enemy actions that affect the players will be bolded like this.

    Other Rules


    Wounds
    Healthy
    -> Slightly Wounded -> Wounded -> Heavily Wounded -> Near Death -> Dead

    Slightly Wounded will automatically heal at the end of combat, anything lower must be healed with a
    healthpack. Statuses never auto-heal unless stated otherwise

    Small medkits heal one step or one Status
    Medkits heal two steps and one Status
    Large Medkit heals three steps and up to two Statuses
    Fullheal Medkits Heals all steps and all statuses, OR can revive someone from death to near death if used in time

    Items and Puzzles
    Certain Items found in bulk, such as computer parts, can be used to attempt to fix other things, upgrade them, pass puzzles, etc. In addition, one can pick one specific kind of part (E.G Optics) to attempt a specific reaction, but specificity costs 5x the parts each used.

    Rations are consumed by the party at a rate of one pack a campstop. Going too long without eating will cause various physical and mental maladies

    Camptime
    During camptime, Wounded characters and lesser wounds will automatically heal, and 1 rationpack will be used. The PC's have time to interact with one another, with NPCs, to cook meals, etc, as well as buy things, attempt to craft, etc. This will continue until there is an OOC consensus to move on, or I give a GM warning that I will move on soon

    You can camp anywhere, at any time, but if you camp outside of a Safe Zone, then something may happen during the camping period

    Crafting
    A PC can use the various scrap objects to attempt to upgrade or modify their weapons. Success depends on item usage and modification attempt. (See Items and Puzzles above for specificity)

    So how lore bending are we allowed to get and what races are allowed ?

  6. Well... the entire premise and fact you're not all gonna be IC for your race... The whole RP is lore-bending.

    As for races, I draw your attention to
    Now, you could also be an "Ork" or "Demon" (human-ish proportioned with green or red/pink/etc skin) along these same lines.

    Unless you mean along the way. I'm going to do my best to allow many TT and other infantry units from the altars. Maybe a few hybrid things too. We'll see how the specifics go

    So if i made an Ork id be more along the lines of a tolkein orc/Uruk ? Im really interested in the premise of the RP but im just getting lost with char creation

  8. At the start, yes it would be a more generic fantasy Orc. However, sacrifice enough lootz to the painted Gork/Mork altars (some will be red, some green, some purple, etc) And you can become a real Ork (in body and such that stuff)
