Wow, long time since I posted anything on this forum.
Anyway, I've been thinking about trying to run a Deathwatch game for my weekly gaming group at some point, but there are some issues I have.
1: In the Core rulebook, it says that the movement speed of the characters is in metres, but it doesn't say how those metres are represented on a game board, if any. Is there a standardised way of doing that, like 1m is equal to 1 square or something like that?
2: Are there any actual adventures for want of a better word in publication? I've had a read through Final Sanction, which is supposed to be an advenutre/mission and I'm not sure I understand it. There seems to be a lot of backstory kind of thing but not any structured adventure writing...or maybe I'm too used to the structure of D&D to see that.
3: Having made the above point on Final Sanction, are there any actual maps that go with these missions or is there just free reign to make them up however you want them to?
4: In an attempt to try and simplify things, not only for the players, but for myself, I want to try and remove some elements like Squad Mode, Demeanours, Power Armour History etc. Are these essential to character creation and running the game, or is it something that can easily be done without?
I'm pretty sure thats it, but I'm sure I'll have more when they come to me
