Started a Guardsmen, he's from a fudeul world carries a flint lock and sword, and a las gun (Had to pick that skill up). We got the first game comming up soon, should be fun.

I must say the background fluff is remarkable and so detailed.

yup the fluff in the game is just awesome
i ended up making a hive world assassin named Cain :victory: im not rly sure how i want him to develop tho...i chose "bilious" for his personality and he indulges in more than a healthy share of vice, but he's the best at his trade (among those he knows on the streets; hes a hive-ganger). he is somewhat cold and heartless, but he believes in the Imperium devoutly. he met his Inquisitor after he tracked down and killed a genestealer broodlord that was cultivating a cult in the underhive. Inquisitor Serahk and his storm troopers saw how Cain killed the broodlord and inducted him into their Ordo.
quick question: does the Ordo of your inquisitor limit what you can do? my back story would make my assassin an Ordo Xenos operative, so im not sure i want to keep that backstory yet.

No the Ordo simple picks likely candidates and uses them for their skills, mind, and muscle to protect the imperium. But hees the rub. As you progress up the ranks and get more involved does your character glenn what the mindset of the inquistor that took you in, very often you might find yourself with different ideaologies. Now thats a Roleplaying opprotunity if I ever saw one.

Thanks to eBAy I got the core book, the GM's Kit and a character folio, so I'm all set... now all I need is a local group to game with!

The fluff and background is nice, and well-developed, but I'll be honest here: I don't really like "the Calixis Sector".

If I end up running a game (as I'm sure I will, eventually... I was always the GM in my gaming groups before) I'll probably just make up my own Sector to run a campaign in.

I'd like to play a Hive-World Scum or a Void-born Arbitrator... maybe an Imperial-world Cleric, even. There could be role-playing gold in that character right there.

Hell, I could see myself playing any and all options at some point.

I want to play a Redemptionist, but at the moment I'm a Genestealer cult. DM'ing is fun! I took out a guy with a 'stealer a couple of weeks back, it was his last session and he wanted to go out with a bang.

I'm also very tempted by a Moritat assassin.

I played my first game of this last week. Character I made up is a void born sanctioned psyker. Gotta say, it plays very well and the way abilities are handled is ace. I was really impressed by the whole environmental effects that can happen with psychic powers, was right out of the books with the temperature dropping, nosebleeds, etc. Damn cool bit of extra detail that didn't -need- to be there but goes a long way in making the game that much better.

Hello gents, might I enquire as to what it is that you are talking about?
It has pricked up my ears and I am fully interested in what it is you talk about, but ignorance obscures my path to enjoyment.

Many thanks in advance as I'm sure you friendly fellows would be eager to aid me in my quest for enlightenment on this subject!

Dark Heresy, the WH40K Role-Playing Game.

*sigh* Unfortunately for me there is no RP group in the area, so Slade Hawkeson the Guardsman shall have to remain as he is: merely existing.

Heresy!

Seriously, for some of us (especially us old-timers) there's no such thing as 'normal dice'. I've got D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D20s and even a D30 and a D100.

All perfectly normal to me.

D4s? I've seen most of the others (Not the 100), but never a 4.

Never played any RPG's Olmer?

Anyways, what career path did all you DH players choose?
I was a Metallican Gunslinger in our first campaign.
