No problem with the Gunslinger, CB.

So it looks like as follows:
Om - Guardsman
CB - Scum (gunslinger)
Foxx - Psyker
NTRW - Adept.

That looks like a good spread.  What Home Worlds are people considering?

As to games...

I have 'Illumination'. the introductory adventure from the main rule book and 'Shattered Hopes' a give-away starter adventure.

I also have the 'Purge the Unclean' book which contains 3 adventures.

HAs anyone played any of these or have any preferences on which adventure we do?

I've definitely GMed illumination. Don't recall Shattered Hopes. I've read the Purge the Unclean book but it was years ago and I don't recall anything but it might come back to me when we start playing. That's not a reason not to play, just FYI.

Any one is good for me. I got illuminations in my book, but I only skimmed through it the first time.

I've not read or played any of the pre-made adventures, so any is fine for me.

Is there room for one more ?  I've played a marksman in Only War & Sororitas in an Inquisition game.  Both being shooty types, I think I would like something more melee oriented for something different.  I don't know what edition those were, but I'm sure I can scare up a book from somewhere.

I wouldn't mind being an alternate if you are full.

Very happy to have you Lynn.

I was playing a melee type in a recent DH2 game.  He was a feral world guardsman who could shoot but much preferred to use the blade.  !We were I think about 4 months into the game (ftf not online) before we took a break and he still hasn't pulled a trigger.

Some similar kind of guardsman would work

I was thinking assassin or arbiter, mainly because no one else is.  I like being different.  ;D

Either would be fine.

Originally I was unhappy about the Moritat package but on re-reading it doesn't get too bad until a much later rank.

I'm sorry, I can't find Moriat in the book.  What is it ?  Or is it somewhere else ?

Assassin in a generic archetype in the rules. But in the game world there is a branch of the Imperium called the Officio Assassinorum who are kind of state sanctioned super assassins.  The Moritat is one of those, a blade wielding cyborg death cultist who can literally dodge bullets. There are rules for playing one in the later expansions but a lot of people consider them broken.

Not to rush or anything, but seeing as though no one has spoken in here in a while, is this game still on?

Oh, right.  So we're using that now? (This is assuming that I'm actually invited >_>)
