Archeotech – Treasure Hunt Expedition

 

With the recent interest in PBP RPG and there being more interest than Commissar Molotov had spaces for I thought I would try and run a game as I really want to play one. Since I started contemplating this to other potential games have opened initial discussion threads, and truth be told I am interested in playing them, so this game may not happen for a while. However as I said in the interest thread that I would post detail to see if anybody is interested here it is.

 

 

Rumors of Archeotech  treasure on a Imperial planet has led to a joint expedition of the local Imperials and out of system organizations and all sorts of fortune seekers. The main expedition is thousands strong and is heading to the most promising sites. Our game will focus on a small band heading to investigate and survey some other potential sites.

 

I envision this very much as a narrative focused adventure games with a variety of characters. As I have no familiarity with any RPG rules this will be rules light game with any combat or similar using modified 40k tabletop rules.

 

The game is open to any sort of character that can be reasonably justified given the scenario. Local guide, lesser scion of an imperial noble house hunting for glory, guardsmen/PDF trooper seconded to the expedition, a Ministorum Priest, a bounty hunter down on his luck, whatever you can persuade me fits the setting.

 

If you are interested in general please let me know and also state what kind of character you would like to play and we will go from there.

The blanket of fire from the pirates thinned as they desperately tried to kill everyone, a costly mistake the Infantry would exploit.  Another explosion blossomed in a muted boom, tearing a man off his feet, sending him flying backwards almost gracefully, to crunch down fifteen metres from the initial point of impact, trailing blood from a ruptured knee joint.  Low gravity combat defied the usual expectation of seeing violent movements realised quickly.  It was horrifically deceptive.

Ah, the lure of Archeotech!

Really tempting to bring some AdMech or Hereteks into this! I am certainly interested,  but  probably have to see how this develops and if/ how / if I could fit in some time. I’ll certainly stick around for the ideas alone - I always wanted to to do some sort of InQ28 Archeotek Raiders project.

Very interesting, keep me in mind if you need an extra player, I'm happy to give new blood a chance to shine.

Thank you Mazer Rackham, Xin Ceithan and Steel Company.

 

I’ll try and develop this more, though I expect that this will not kick off for a litel while as I am kind a committed to two other games now. The last day or so has been real busy here with new potential games opening up. I do however want to run this so do bear with me.

Like I said Trokair, I'm down for pretty much anything game wise so long as the GM wishes to run it, I'm also happy to be a sounding board for ideas as well.

I can also only echo this. I really like the idea and would be happy to play and develop this...and with the current rise of activity around here, taking a slow and steady burn suits me just fine. Always nice to have something to look forward to!

Just to say this is not dead, and I am slowly working out what I want to do.

That's no problem, the stuff hit the fan in the Blackthorn / Sword Hand game, so we've been distracted.
