WELCOME TO THE "OTHER GAMES" FORUM OF THE B&C

As usual all the board rules apply in here but this forum has some particular rules all to itself.

Obviously power armor armies are what one should be discussing here. The exception being Inquisitor and Battlefleet Gothic.

All aspects of the Inquisitor 54mm RPG Mini game are open for discussion here as long as they do not deal solely with XENOS discussion.

In regards to Battlefleet Gothic, while Marines have their own fleets, it is a little more "foggy" when it comes to Sisters of Battle and Inquisition Fleets. While they do have their own fleet vehicles they are more often than not standard Imperial vehicles. So with that in mind Imperial and Chaos Fleets are okay for topics of discussion. Xenos fleets are obviously off limits.

TAGGING:

In an effort to make things a little easier for your fellow readers please use TAGS as part of your topic title.

Some ideas in regards to tags:
[BFG] - Battlefleet Gothic
[=][=] - Inquisitor
[DOW] - Dawn of War
[EPIC] - EPIC, Adpetus Titanicus, Space Marine -- any of the "epic scale" games
[SH] - Space Hulk and Ultramarine are mainly covered by this, but Advanced Space Crusade could fall under this as well.
[CCG] - For the 40k Card Game
[PE] - Planetary Empires

Alternatively if you would like to discuss OTHER 40k, power armor related, PC titles you may want to use [PC] as your first tag with the game title for your second, such as [PC][GATE] for Chaos Gate.

Please note that the rules for this forum are subject to change without notice.

Existing roleplay threads will be allowed to run their course (though they don't have an indefinite lifespan), but no new roleplay threads will be created. This forum is not about roleplaying. It's about the Legio, the B&C's mascot Chapter. We added the Arena of Death sub-forum because our official AoDs tended to feature the Legio. However, it seems that our inclusion of the AoDs and the battle reports and stories that were tied to those competitions created some confusion, leading some members to believe that general roleplaying was the name of the game. It's not, so this spells the end of roleplaying threads.

There are other sites that feature roleplaying. Members are encouraged to participate in those sites. Alternately, since these "roleplaying" threads are really collaborative storytelling efforts rather than actual roleplaying games, members might consider using the Liber Comniscor forum. However, the fate of such threads/efforts in that forum is questionable since that's not really what that forum is about, either.

If you look in the Links section, you'll find the link to Damage Inc. under the General 40K sites. There's also one that was created very recently and advertised here at the B&C. You can find the add for that by searching (in Amicus Aedes, I think). The thread was closed, but you can also find it advertised in some members' signatures (and they'll probably be along shortly to provide that link for you.

Not that all extant roleplaying threads will be allowed to survive through June 30. After that, I'll be cleaning this forum out in order to re-focus on the intended subject: the Legio. All roleplaying threads (including those about the Legio) will be removed. If we decide to continue allowing roleplaying threads, these threads will be moved to whatever forum is deemed appropriate. If we decide to not allow roleplaying threads, they'll be purged.

Instead of removing them, is it possible to place the ones that might be valuable and sticky them somewhere, or at least preserve some of them? It's just that I don't wanna lose all the things and the story that grew to maturity from the Roleplay.

Oh, cool. Never noticed the options button. Thanks you.

*EDIT*: Unfortunately, since the thread is sooo long, the download function won't let me dl the whole thread. It only goes up to July 31 2008 while the thread ended at March 3 2009. Any help, please?

For those of you who want a good roleplaying site, try Sons of the Emperor.

If we decide to not allow roleplaying threads, they'll be purged.


That's somewhat harsh considering the level of innocence related to the RP's. They're not so much purposefully causing a problem as they are merely creating a largely harmless form of entertainment.

I think bolter should have a thread for role play, there are quite a few people who have started modeling based on there role play characters on this site or created a chapter in liber astartes.
The 40k universe got a little bigger maybe bolter and chainsword should to? after all


"The Bolter & Chainsword exists to help people learn about modelling, painting, understanding, and playing with power armoured armies in the Warhammer 40k game universe."

Just my two skulls i havent played any role play games just like the thought that more people are been drawn to the hobby in what ever form ( as long as they wear power armour) and The bolter and chainsword.
To the mods no disrespect please keep up the great work .

The "role plays" that are prohibited are the collaborative stories where members took different roles and different people wrote bits and pieces of the story. Too often, people were taking roles of characters from armies/races prohibited by the B&C. We gave them basic limitations on how that might be done, but it was repeatedly demonstrated that members wouldn't follow those rules, so the role plays are no longer allowed.

As for the WH40K RPGs from FFG, discussion of those is allowed here in the Other Games forum. The standard B&C rules for what may/may not be discussed here still apply.

Fair enough, its a gaming community built on following the rules, they should be able to follow the rule of B&C .
It is a shame some ruined it for all, still everyone likes a bonfire burn the heretics burn them all :D

Apologies if I come across as irritating for bringing this subject back up, but would it possible to allow people to participate in FFG roleplay scenarios on the B&C? Now that the board represents the whole of Humanities armies, it would be great to see members being able to play roleplays like Dark Heresy, Black Crusade and Deathwatch on the forum. Rogue Trader is a bit trickier but with some basic rules, such as no non-NPC aliens, it could work well.

 

Cheers,

 

Ludovic

Discussion of the full range of FFG WH40K roleplaying games is allowed since they all feature the armies we cover, but actual roleplaying isn't allowed. The discussion forum setup doesn't support the real time interaction necessary to play roleplaying games, however.
