for the corsair is it a power sword or a chainsword?
Radicalism. Some Inquisitors do hire alien mercenaries to serve them, provide their opinions and technology when going up against a bigger threat. The more dangerous aliens don't normally work with them, Kroot and Eldar are some of the few races that will since they have their own mercenaries who don't particularly care who they work for.Here's a question, why would an inquisitor of the ordo xenos run around with a kroot or corsair? I am not saying they wouldn't. I have never bothered to read any inquisition based novels from BL or anything like that yet so it could be fairly commonplace for all I know.
Inquisitors hire whomever they feel will be useful to them in the future. They might take a cage-fighter for some muscle in fights, somebody to intimidate people or to serve as a bodyguard. An Arbites could provide useful knowledge of Imperial Law, liase with local Arbites precints to make sure they work together well or stay out of the way. Every acolyte has a use and the Inquisitorial retinue can contain people of widely different backgrounds who must work together despite radically different professions.Before I can make a sheet, and I will do some reading and research on my own as well, I need to know more about how all these different types of people end up being part of a retinue. How do retinues usually work? Why would their be a cage fighter on what seems like a detective mission, alongside a priest of the Imperium no less. Or an arbite with a ganger?
An inquisitor may take people on for a variety of reasons; because they have useful skills, hidden potential, a sound mind, authority/access to various bodies or institutions that might make working easier, or know people.So with that info in mind, it seems that an inquisitor would usually be looking for people who have particularly high levels of skill, talent, and/ or authority? Or is that not always the case?
On the table-top, yes those are the two that Eldar forces can swap out for, but no they are not the only ones they have. There are also the witch blades of warlocks and farseers, rune-crafted blades, or ancient weapons like the Spear of Twilight that the pirate prince Yriel uses.i just thought id ask as those are the two that eldar usually have
ye i know there are others but considering that a.you said that he's not aloud to have walked the path of the seer and b.he aint a powerful autarch like yriel those are like the only two unless you go for exarch weapons like warp spider powerblades.On the table-top, yes those are the two that Eldar forces can swap out for, but no they are not the only ones they have.
