Coming Late to the party.

Post by Nexus_Crawler » Sat Jun 27, 2015 10:47 pm

I am bringing in reinforcements to this system but I am not sure how to jump into the established narrative; this is a more complicated system than the last 2 seasons of MWG campaign.

I just registered as casual for now.

Can anybody give me a heads up?

I think he's more asking about how the narrative has progressed than the basic set up.

Why not just say our side is heavily outgunned and outnumbered, by.............a lot!

Plus we already have Belial, master of the deathwing our our side, so they should join us!

Narritively speaking, the Dominon is mostly made up of the Kestral 706th regiment of Imperial Guard and a Dark Eldar Kabal lead by Lady Galianostra. The Kestral regiment claims to be here to take back the system for the "true" Imperial way and publicaly denies involvment with both the Dark Eldar and Dominion. They've settled a slave trading deal with the Dark Eldar in turn for their continued alliance. The Kabal is also involved for some sort of secret deal it has with the Scholar. It's all very hush, hush.

The conclave is messier. Half of them have a vendetta against us for spreading "Slander". The other half seem intent on making the slander true, such as when the Nurgle Lord (using resources supplied by the conclave) wiped out all life on Balrus using a nurgle plague, Balrus being a planet under their "Protection". Reason enough for the Dark Angels to declare them heretics as well, no?

You flatter me sir, but I am not the one who rules the Kabal Of The Black Heart, that would be the supreme overlord Asdrubael Vect, master of Commorragh.

As for the scholar's secret deals. It's only a secret if you don't tell everyone about it. What's the first rule of fight club........

Slander? The fact that they're a bunch of chaos worshipers in disguise? I just call it like I see it.

The dominion is also supposed to be a secret society type of organization, with some mysterious guy pulling some strings to get things done.

Oddly enough that's much like the Dark Angels themselves.

I think I will be playing on your side, Hedonism. I quite like the idea of secrecy within the Dark Angels.... and Finding hidden truths with ulterior motives.

Ronin - How would I personally go about qualifying / requesting ASL points? you get together on mondays - is there a vent server you talk on? or similar?

aah. I see. you are using roll20.net

Got it. Do you want all players to try and chime in if they can? or just the more active players?

Don't worry about the ap assigning. As a sort of captain for the dominion, I've taken care of assigning ap for everyone.

So if you can't make it for the weekly meeting, don't worry about it. Just let me know the pts size you will be using and when you'll be playing games and I'll hook you up.

I will try to be there. What time zone are you in?
