I've moved back to my old stomping grounds (more or less). I've fled the south and moved to Connecticut, hopefully I can get some of my old gaming friends together and manage a campaign. I know I have one interested for sure.

PostSubject: A Group of a Dozen in California   Wed Feb 19, 2014 5:19 pm

Hi, Recently joined. Our group in a small 25K person community. We are in California, a hundred miles from Death Valley the split east to Ludlow and north to Las Vegas. Our group of a dozen players play a kind of "Dark Heresy"/40K codex Witchhunter RPG variation of WH40K. We take the mechanics of 40K (DS) and make it a sort of "role playing game" with additional "USR" and traits. It has worked out wonderfully and as "Gamemaster" I assist the players in designing their "Squad Leader" to embody what they imagine it can do, keeping balance and game environment/background in mind. Rather then assign a point cost we determine what would be appropriate, reasonable and probable for the character.  The players are a Acolyte or Throne Agent of the Inquisition tasked to perform certain missions (or else!-lol). They also have often a few "henchmen" to help them.

The mechanics of DS/40K make playing an Inquisitional "Kill Team" or a "Warband" or squad much easier then conventional RPGs and even Dark Heresy. 40K also makes engaging with multiple opponents so much easier then conventional RPGs. Normally the admin difficulties of keeping track of a character or opponent's status is daunting and it (IMO) distracts from expressing the narrative of what is going on in the game. With 40K mechanics I can quickly let players know what happens in a dramatic fashion.

For new players, the game is easy to learn. they find it  easy to understand the use of common 6 sided dice and the yatzhee like practice in WH40K to roll several dice and discard what dice aren't relevant. We use traits and abilities that allow full rerolls or just rerolls of "ones" and this seems to make the characters that have these abilities more interesting.

DS or these smaller tactical and narrative games are also good in that it is a wonderful gateway to larger skirmish games if the player develop an interest. At our level a player only has to be responsible for either selecting a few models to representing their group from my collection or getting/purchasing 3-4 models they like better. They aren't forming huge armies at considerable expense and they only have to worry on the dynamics of their team and how they interact with other or how they operate against certain opponents.

As characters has become more interested in the game, they become more interested in the 40K worldview and how their characters operate in it. I encourage our players to develop a "backstory" and I have used those expressions to give characters intelligence information based on what that character's background would indicate. I do what I can to keep to 40K canon but there is some small (IMO) variation to suit the needs of our adventures. In our current campaign "Squats" are prominent, and several are in the group. In delving into subterranean areas the team has battled "Skaven" who cause the same kinds of trouble they do in the classic world of Warhammer.

I highly recommend me move all of this to something less dependent on forum posts. See:

http://miniwars.co.uk/players - includes United States map of players
http://www.tabletoptournaments.net/players/country=United-States
http://boardgamegeek.com/
http://nearbygamers.com/
http://http://www.meetup.com/

That way people who don't find this forum, can still find us, and players.
