First of all, congrats on finally making a post where I didn't have to edit the swear words out of the title!Secondly, I'd hang on to the book. Even if we don't play the rules themselves it's a great source of information and is a beautiful book in and of itself. I still plan on getting one, just to add to the trilogy of Dark Heresy and Rogue Trader.
You can get LoA for $30-- worth keeping Deathwatch, in my opinion. And Chick Stix and I (and Gyro?) have copies, as well...maybe somebody (else) will run a game sometime.And here's what Santa brought me for Christmas.
Chico Stix, that is...Chick Stix is an entirely different food product!
I have been looking to get into a new RPG as I am not a big fan of D&D 4th edition. Is this trilogy of 40K RPGs good? I have considered getting Dark Heresy for awhile now and I have heard good things about Rogue Trader as well.
If you haven't read the Ravenor trilogy (or the Eisenhorn trilogy), do so, then you will be dying to play Dark Heresy! They are great rules, really great rules, our group's style is a little more loose, but the rules are solid.All three are awesome, and they all offer you a totally different take on the same universe, depending which path you take; Throne agent investigators rooting out cults and stopping witches, Rogue Traders on your own massive ship in command of thousands dealing with new aliens and sectors, or Space Marines, kicking butt for the Emperor.Andy's right Oz, have your cake and eat it too!
Dark Heresy is my favorite of the 40k trilogy but probably because we played that the most. Rogue Trader was fun too. Deathwatch would be nice to get an official play in, not just the supplement.As for my holiday gaming haul, my mother-in-law got me Zombies!!! 6-9 and some flock for basing up some figs, my stocking was loaded with some brushes, paints, and figs via the lil' lady, and my brother scored the entire orc half of Assault on Black Reach for a nice price!But the icing on the cake is that my youngest brother (13 and an aspiring-gamer) wanted to surprise me and helped our mom pick out my first official piece of tabletop scenery in the GW Temple of Skulls. He also screen printed me up a sweet Orc WAAAGH! symbol on a shirt in art class!
Thank you Bi3cuit, for actually answering the question!
I'm loquacious enough without adding redundancy to my repertoire. The answer you seek, Deborah, has been here the whole time:http://miksminis.blogspot.com/2010/12/pharaohs-quest-1-of-2.html
I answered the question first, you ingrate!
Sorry, missed that!
