The Core Mechanic: Six RPG Map Making Solutions For Your Game Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay is a role-playing game system with multiple source books for the Warhammer 40,000 universe. The first game using the system, Dark Heresy, was created by Black Industries, which folded up soon after the initial release. Official support is continued by Fantasy Flight Games. The Warhammer 40,000 Roleplay system is explained and used with small differences in a series of independently playable games. Each has a different, narrow focus and multiple supporting books of its own: Gameplay[edit] In Dark Heresy, the players assume the role of a group of Acolytes working for an Inquisitor, who sends them on various missions. In Rogue Trader, players take the role of a Rogue Trader and his or her crew as they operate outside the stellar and legal boundaries of the Imperium. In Deathwatch, players take the role of surgically modified super humans known as Space Marines. In Black Crusade, players take the role of Chaos-corrupted characters.

The Morser 3 by ~Landstormer on deviantART Introduction to Mapping - MapToolDoc Introduction First Things First: What is MapTool? Although you probably have an idea what MapTool is and does, I just want to take a moment to reinforce the main goal of MapTool: MapTool is a program that helps you share a "virtual tabletop" with your friends, so you can play games on it. That is what MapTool does, and its features are aimed at providing a continuum of options, from the simple to the complex, to achieve that goal. In all the talk of macros and properties and tables and scripting that will follow in this and other guides, don't lose sight of the reason you're checking MapTool out anyway: it's a way to play games with friends. About this Guide The purpose of this guide is not to delve into the seamy underbelly of MapTool's macro scripting system, lighting, properties, or any of that complex stuff. The following instructions should get you up and running with MapTool to use as a battle mapping/general mapping tool. You know how to create or get some map images. So here we go.

Characters with Character: Random Personality Generator If you're enjoying the content here, check out our new site, Thoughtcrime Games. Thanks for visiting! If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! I don’t know about you but when I sit down for a one-shot game with a pregen character, I can’t always come up with a unique and interesting personality on the fly. Using the Generator is a snap. Motivation: What is it that really gets your character’s motor running? Instinct: What is your character’s first reaction to a threat (physical or otherwise)? Approach: What archetype is your character best known for being? Now just because every character in D&D is combat-capable does not necessarily make them all warrior-type personalities. Carrion, Tiefling Earth WardenMotivation 3 (Information); Instinct 4 (Protect Others); Approach 10 (Disciplined Commander) Though the city of Bael Turath stands in ruins, much of the Tiefling heritage lies buried ignobly around the Known World.
