    [40k Rogue Trader] Storyline conundrum - how the hell do the PCs fix this?

    Okay, I've painted myself into a corner, and both myself and my players are at a loss of how to fix this so that it doesn't eat the universe. I've been running Rogue Trader (using a blend of the newer mechanics from Dark Heresy 2nd edition and Only War, but also dips from basically all of the...

    [DH 2nd] GM Needs Help with Encounters

    So I've been running a game of Rogue Trader that has been going on for a year that ended a little bit ago, and my players are ready to get back into the 40K universe with the new edition. They liked my game for it's atmosphere, the weird characters, and some of the inanity I put forward. There...

    So, I'm playing an Arch-Militant and I'm sitting here trying to decide what to spend my XP on and since i"m still rank 1 there's not a lot of options... But one of the reasons there's not a lot of options has me confused... Why the hell are the Universal Weapon Training talents even in there? I...

    Late to the Rogue Trader party

    So, I've just discovered I have horrible timing. My friends and I were talking about doing something else, and the 40K RPGs came up. I was thinking that Rogue Trader seemed like a good idea, so we made up characters. Long story short, I now know that there's no more support and things are...

    [Rogue Trader]Need help building an Explorator

    I'm trying to build my first ever Rogue Trader character and I've decided to go for an Explorator, but I have a few questions: How do I start with a Mechadendrite? All cyberware is very rare which seems like it's basically impossible to start with, but every picture I see of the AdMech...

    [40k Rogue Trader] As a GM who can't run sandboxes, where do you even start?

    So with the demise of our current game, I'm looking at perhaps taking up the GM mantle again and running Rogue Trader, mainly because people don't want to agree on any other setting. On a whole, we know the 40k universe pretty well, but most of us have little experience with Rogue Trader...

    [Rogue Trader] Tips for running RT

    So, I've played Rogue Trader and the other 40k RPGs several times, run them once or twice. But I've never actually run a complete RT campaign and am not quite sure how it goes. I know a lot of it depends on the person playing the actual Rogue Trader and what they want to focus on, but anyone...

    [Let's Read] Rogue Trader Core Rulebook

    Today, I got a used copy of Rogue Trader, of Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay fame, from my FLGS. I decided it might be fun to chronicle my reactions as I read through the book. First, I should note that I am not terribly versed in Warhammer 40k lore. I've played a bit of the Dawn of War video game...

    Solving the "How Does the Party Come Together" Question

    Some people here have rather ambitious projects that are entire systems with combat, classes, the works. I, on the other hand, set out to solve a simple problem: I was GM, and my players would create these backstories that didn't allow them to interact at all. Furthermore, it was hard for them...

    [Rogue Trader] Astra Incognita

    Running Rogue Trader with Dark Heresy 2E?

    While the premise of Rogue Trader remains great, the system leaves a lot to be desired - it is one of the early RPGs in the WH40K line, and it shows. And with the advent of Dark Heresy 2E, we have what is in my opinion a much better system. So I was wondering: Has anyone attempted to convert...

    [40k] Trading game

    In the grim darkness of the far future there is only...... trade :D I want to design a game with Sandbox feel and trading focused. I will probably use the Rogue Trader system. Give my players a Letter of Marque or make them Chartist Captains. In both cases recently... So basically they will...

    [Rogue Trader + Others] Planetary Nobility

    So, sort of inspired by Ka_ge2020's post here... I don't own any of the 40K games... but it suddenly occurred to me that an interesting idea would be to use a variation on the Rogue Trader rules (as I understand them through nothing more than info I've read on RPG.net) to build a planet-ruling...

    [Rogue Trader] Forge World born Rogue Traders?

    So, I'm gearing up for a Rogue Trader based LARP that's starting soon and the idea of a Rogue Trader who born on a Forge World popped into my head and won't leave. I hadn't thought of playing a actual member of the Mechanicus (I played an Explorator in a previous campaign), but perhaps the...

    Questioning regarding Rogue Traders vs Inquisition

    So my question is this I am having a war hammer discussion with a friend. Now if a rouge trader has a warrant of trade that was signed by the Emperor himself. Can the Adeptus Mechanicus or Inquisition seize anything it wants from the Trader?. I know normally the Inquisition can ask but the...

    40k Rogue Trader, how risky is dealing in xenos artefacts actually?

    I'm not quite sure I get how the intersection of a Warrant of trade, and the Imperial ban on ownership and trade in alien artefacts work. Under imperial law, its hideously illegal and Heretical to own and trade these things. But a Rogue trader's warrant specifically grants them leave to trade...

    [Rogue Trader] Twilight Crusade and Tau PCs

    So, I am starting a new Rogue Trader campaign using the Twilight Crusade adventure as a launching point and I just bought the Tau Character Guide, so I am eager to use that. The player in our group who plays Tau in 40k has signed on to play a Fire Warrior, and I've decided to keep it at the one...

    [40k] Is it possible to make a Technomancer psyker some how in one of the game settings?

    I've been thinking I would expect some sort of tech controlling psyker would be an option, but I don't see it in my Dark Heresy or Black Crusade books. Anyone know if there is an elite advance or part of the lore that support it?
