    [Rogue Trader] Trading with Eldar

    So Rogue Traders have the authority to meet and trade with aliens, but what would trading with Eldar entail? I've been thinking about this for a while, and I have difficulty coming up with things that the other side could get. I can see the Eldar being willing to trade for things like...

    [Rogue Trader] Haywire weapons besides grenades?

    My game has Rank 4 explorers. The have their hands on best-quality Rosariuses, and I want as a gm to be able to neutralize them, but not wipe out all their machine gear. Are their any other weapons with the Haywire/EMP trait (Imperial or Xenos) besides EMP/Haywire grenades? Are there also...

    [Rogue Trader] What's written in an ancient Warrant of Trade (Great Crusade era)

    My players have picked an ancient warrant of trade, we've also decided to pull it a century or two back from the Age of Rebirth, so their warrant was issued by the Council of Terra, putting its dating in the period immediately up to, or after the start of the Horus Heresy but before the age of...

    [Rogue Trader] Tips and tools for a first time GM?

    Hey folks! I'm new to this whole pen and paper business as I have only ever played one game that is currently on hold. (Our GM can't come for a few weeks due to personal business. It was a game using the gurps system in a pseudo firefly universe.) Well I have the core rule book and love the 40k...

    [Rogue Trader] Any tips on running Lure of the Expanse?

    So my weekly Dresden Files campaign is going on hiatus, and I took the opportunity to swoop in and run something. I've had Rogue Trader on my shelf for a long time now, and I've never had a chance to do more than flip through it and daydream. My players rolled up an arch-millitant (a sanctioned...

    [Rogue Trader] Ideas Needed: Gladiatorial Games

    So I've just started running a new Rogue Trader game, beginning with the old classic of throwing the PCs into a gladiatorial arena. The objective is for them to win the month-long games, and to receive the Haarlock warrant of trade as a reward. Of course, if you're familiar with the Haarlock...

    [40k] Give me your weird planets!

    Greetings all, I am planning a Dark Heresy/Rogue Trader game where the players are Explorers beyond the Halo Stars. My version of the warp is far less "tunnelly", and a path way from one part of the galaxy can lead somewhere completely different, even though it is a stable tunnel. Further...

    [40k] Running Dark Heresy with Rogue Trader add-ons?

    Greetings all, I am planning a large hex-crawl 40k RPG in the coming year where the players take the roles of outcast explorers sent to a newly discovered sector to bring it into the light of the Imperium. The PCs are supposed to be slightly above the common man, but really just 'middle...

    Ok, time for my latest attempt to get a game going with my group. This time, we're trying out Rogue Trader. I'm running the group in the Koronus Expanse, in 990 M41. At this point in time I only own the core book, although I'm hoping to pick up Stars of Iniquity and Battlefleet Koronus soon...

    [WH40K] What are the actual rule differences between the various games

    I keep hearing on here that people believe that Black Crusade and Only War have a better version of the 40K rules than the games that came between them. I have only ever run Dark Heresy and am in the middle of reading Rogue Trader, so I'm only familiar with those. So what makes the BC and OW...

    [40K RPGs] The Genestealer's Kiss

    Genestealers are famously boogly beasties, and noted for their Face Full Of Alien Wing Wong tendencies. However, the portrayal of Genestealer infection varies to an annoying extent. Sometimes it's a parasitic growth that hatches in remarkably short time, others it's merely a re-writing of the...

    Rogue Trader: What resources, handouts and tweaks have you made

    I know a bunch of people have converted it to Fate/SWN/other, so this isn't about that (If I do convert at some point, it would either be GURPS with a bunch of action lenses or Fate). Dark Reign having sort of vanished (I found a replacement forum for it but it's noticeably sparse), and the FFG...

    [Sell Me/Unsell Me] WH40k RPG: Rogue Trader

    I searched as best I could without actually being able to "search" for a similar thread, and couldn't find anything, so I apologize if this is a duplicate and I missed its counterpart. So, my group is coming to the end of our multi-year 4E D&D campaign sometime within the next several months...

    [Rogue Trader] Anyone have Stars of Inequity yet? What's it like?

    As the title says - does anyone have the Stars of Inequity book yet? What's in there - and what do you think of it? I'm not playing Rogue Trader at the moment as our TT game died (though I would dearly like to), but I'm a big fan of the game line. However I'm not sure about this one, as it...

    I've got myself the Navis Primer, and one of my favourate bits from it is the Disciple of Abraxas alternate rank. For those who don't know, they're a Mechanicus sub-cult who integrate psy-active xeno tech into themselves in order to gain an esoteric set of psychic abilities (up to three over...

    So I have recently aquired Rogue Trader, Deathwatch & Black Crusade. Some games a GM screen helps alot, & others it just sits there blocking dice. Can someone give me input on whether the screens are worth it to pick up? Since I cant get a peak at them wrapped up in the plastic wrap at the...

    Rogue Trader: The Navis Primer

    I was asked by another member to give an outline of this book, as we seem to have received it early in my part of the world. Bear in mind that I haven't had a chance to read it from cover to cover yet, so this will be based on a bit of idle flicking through the pages in spare moments...
