Coming in with Colin's character as an old friend. This really made my game as I always had a partner in crime and someone to touch base with. Even if we did get ourselves into all sorts of trouble.
Flint Esperon was a surprising addition to our little pair of trouble makers and we worked together on a couple of occasions over the event. I do look forward to the two of us organising the Dynasty parties
The Imperial Tarot, I had a lot of fun and got a lot of interaction with PC’s from all sides of the game by being able to use the Augury ability. I’m a little unsure as to why the Inquisition came to me over an Inquisitorial Augur, But, I’m glad I did.
I’ve joined a Rogue Trader Dynasty under the old Alluvian warrant with Cal as our Rogue Trader. I think we are going to be the first group to actually buy a Warrant in play, so it’s going to be interesting. Liking my group so far, here’s hoping I’m not too radical for them.
Not becoming the vessel of the emperors might was awesome. I got quite far through the process before I was eliminated and I think it was very much for the best. Nox really wanted it, but as a player I knew it would completely change the character I was playing. Clos was a definite win for me as a player.
Negotiations about Letters of the Marque. I had some great conversations regarding it with lots of important people. Not sure exactly whether it worked or not as there is currently nothing in place in the system for it. But, it was great to have a Big Thing I was attempting to achieve at the event.
I won a duelling contest despite my lack of IC and OOC combat skills. All my duels were very close and I think they could have all gone either way. Apparently I get a prize
I think I came across a suitably dodgy and trying to turn over a new leaf.
All the work on background links and details really paid off and I was able to improvise all sorts of stories and things I had in common with people.
Playing cards IC (and ICish on the Saturday night). I want this to be something Nox does regularly.
NPCing the Cardinal Captain again was a lot of fun. Especially, trying to find a proxy to attend the War Council for me and dumping it on a rather terrified Sister Hospitlar . I hope you had some interesting conversations on the back of it Sister Hypatia?
I also rather enjoyed making the players choose whether they wanted the Cardinal’s support for the sainthood of the padre or the crusade as a whole. I think the fact that they decided they would manage the push for the padre themselves, so that should generate some more RP further down the line.
The Not So Hot
I only went on one linear. I got offered a slot on another one but turned it down to attend a meeting I had to go to but didn’t end up having any input at. I really don’t have the patience for standing about waiting for linear slots to come up and because I don’t wear armour or carry a big weapon most people assume my psyker is a non-combatant. Hopefully people being more aware of what I can do and being part of an established crew will make it easier.
Psychic Mass Double – my new least favourite call. I had terrible luck with almost all of my psyker draws and ended up unconscious on the floor twice by over exerting myself. Sorry to those of you that were caught in the blast (totally not sorry, you were standing too close and not paying enough attention to what was going on :-p).
Not taking a half day on the Friday to drive down made my Friday night a bit manic. I could have done without that.
At a most inconvenient time.
When I wasn't wearing shoes.
Or a jacket.
And may failed attempts to leave the building led me to where the smoke alarm was triggered instead of outside.
