Hey, I've just been waiting for a post to respond to, got plenty of free time to write.

 

 Thanks for the heads up on the flesh-storage. It's like a gold mine. Corpses aren't usually a first choice... But beggars can't be choosers, I suppose. A veritable gold mine of cadavers.

I'd intended to post something today, but a rather heavy night on the amasec last night wiped me out today. I really should learn that I'm getting too old to be drinking with the youth of today these days. I've got a freelance contract I need to start tomorrow, but ill make sure to get an Underbelly post up for Reeve as well.

Hey, man, don't worry too much about it. I wasn't trying to call you out, just trying to cover my own ass. tongue.png

- Olis, it would be good to get a post together with Brye's thoughts on the Captain, the room and your conversation with the other nobles. 

 

Roger that. If I don't get it done tonight I'll do it tomorrow.

The scribe doesn't have too much to do at the moment, but I put something up to keep us moving a bit.

I've gotta be straight with y'all: I have no idea how to describe a game of regicide. I really want to, as I want Wyl to play against Zarkov, but I don't remember any of the details. I do have a copy of Victories of the Space Marines lying around somewhere, and if I recall correctly the short story "The Long Games at Carcharias" briefly describes some elements of the game, so I'll try to track it down.

It's basically 40k chess. That's the impression that I've had over the years.

Doesn't the Eisenhorn trilogy go into some detail about the game?

If all else fails, download and play the Regicide computer game and see how it works. :)

Taken from the Warhammer 40'000 Lexicanum page on regicide:

 

 

Regicide

 

Regicide is a game played in the Imperium with similarities to M2-era chess and can be played on a circular board. The game is simple to learn, but difficult to master and is played across all classes from lowly refresherscrubbers to spire nobility. Many Imperial Guard officers play as well and hone their tactical senses in games with small sets that can fold into their combat kit.

 

Rules of the Game

 

Many variations of Regicide have been played throughout the Imperium across its history, with variations including the use of 'hooded' pieces, which play as a different piece until revealed.

 

Known Playing Pieces

  • The Emperor
  • Empress
  • Tetrarch
  • Divinitarch
  • Primarch
  • Ecclesiarch
  • Fortress
  • Citizen

Known Checkmate Scenarios

  • Blind Man’s Mate - a form of victory, named because it isn't seen coming.
  • The Traitor's Gambit

I can't imagine that the game of Regicide is necessarily the same across the whole Imperium. I figure there'd be regional variations. My usual mantra is not to let facts get in the way of fun - or in the way of players making good posts!

That is an unexpectedly strong assertion from a dead person.

Yes gents, let's get posting so we can get to Arcturus and wrap up this flight.  

 

Don't be to fussed about the skill/level of writing.  Sometimes, the best thing to do is simply put text to screen.  :)

Sorry, I just haven't had the time to even really look much at Bolter and Chainsword lately. Things are pretty hectic at work right now. Posting right now.

No worries, Noctus. Good luck with whatever is keeping you so occupied at work. :tu:

 

I'll do my very best to get an answer posted this afternoon to keep the ball rolling.

Well... that worked well. :sweat: :lol:

 

I'm going to be away from home for the next couple of days and then I've got my ETL vow to finish, so realistically I won't be able to post anything before Monday evening has rolled by. Sorry!
