    Well, he's a Slaaneshi and she's a Khornate, and on top of that, she's got Enemy (All). She definitely should test against Fear of the daemonette. I'm not sure if she's affected by Host of Fiends as well, considering Enemy (All).

    I'm just not sure because of the Enemy (All). I don't want to target Alicia. Phinneas considers her a friend. But I'm unsure due to the talent she's got. And there continues to be a lack of a =/ smiley. So instead, take a .

    Ehehehehehe. Well, no need for me to make rulings, I'm not the GM!

    As I said, and deleted, as long as Phin consider her an ally it shouldn't affect her no matter what she thinks. If she attacks Phin, I doubt he will consider her an ally anymore at which point Host of Fiends will affect her.

    I think enemy at only level 1 is basically the equivilent of Rival from Dark Heresy. It's less that everyone wants to kill you, more you make a bad impression on everyone. On account of hating them.

    But Enemy dictates what people think of her, while Hatred dictates what she thinks of others. It's why I dislike Purity of Aggression so much -- it dictates how your character reacts, and thus takes agency away from the player.

    Thus why I'm unsure of the situation.

    I think the Enemy talent is more for what NPCs think about you, and shouldn't indicate what other PCs think.

    On wanting to do other things: I'd like to test for a war trophy, but I'm not sure if we can make more than four acquisition attempts. My luck probably wouldn't allow me to actually get the silly bugger, but y'know. Leaving the space dock with more than I had getting here would have been nice. But that's true of Phinneas, Farius AND Alicia. Only Mr. Terminator actually got anything.

    Other than that, Phinneas is ready to head down.

    Why thank you! I could actually do something in melee then!

    It would take a most incredible roll to actually hit, but if he could, that Killing Will business would really take off.

    All ranged weapons are also worse vs. hordes (apart from long range flamers and high blast value grenades) compared to melee attacks which are the undisputed masters of that. So that all ranged weapons are bad vs hordes isn't saying much.

    I'm not asking for it to be "best", I'm asking for it to be "better", as to reflect it's availbility and cost to use compared to other as good or better weapons.

    In my opinion the biggest problem with the Blastmaster is it's so easy to avoid all hits due to you only needing 2 DoS. If you evade, you probably get 2 DoS as well. With 3 RoF you'd atleast need 3 DoS on the evade test to avoid all, which isn't as easy.
    At the moment its a combination of combi-bolter and multi-melta which is plenty good enough. And storm is a mixed bag. Good, you don't need to roll as well to hit, bad as they can dodge 2 for 1. Its 6 and half a dozen and balances itself out.

    Safer for Alicia if she's not testing Fear, I guess.

    I actually forgot to mention during the combat that Alicia should probably test Fear, as she wouldn't know that Farius was with Phin and therefor considered Alicia's enemy like most others in the room.
    I was going to leave it that Alicia was not an enemy and so would be avoiding the fear like the rest of the party to avoid all the players having to make fear tests every round they were with Farius.

    Narine Pox:- Leader of the Crimson skulls. A reaver band with several ships and a large portion of the slave markets
    Havelock Sorrel: Another reaver band leader. You are currently in his territory.
    Captain Darexor:- Captain of the chaos cruiser Gift of Despair and another Reaver leader

    Presuming it's just a Good-craftsmanship Staff, it'll give you a +15 in trades.

    At least, that's according to RAW. No idea on what it'll do in specific trades, a la the house rules.

    And assuming it's an actual psy-focus in the shape of a staff, it'll give you +20 if it's best craftmanship.

    Best craftmanship gives +20. It was just an 'if'. I think it's a common craftmanship psy-focus which gives him nothing for trading.

    It's "good quality", which I assume means Good Craftsmanship.

    It's a staff that also acts as a psy focus, though. And it's a good-craftsmanship staff, according to DrK. That means it's just +15.

    By the way, DrK, what were "Master Vissilch's holy words"? What kind of doctrine was he preaching?

    By the way, Lucretia, Mekboy, you might want to use this opportunity to rid some of the guards of their weaponry, like that melta or bolt guns or somesuch.

    Phinneas is a weak old man with the accuracy on par with someone who ignored ballistic training in Dark Heresy. He has no need for bolters or meltas. Do I want them for trading? Sure. But Phinneas doesn't really care about such things, because he's an apathetic old man who thinks things just sort of materialize when they need to.

    Well, I'm a viciously greedy looter with the maximum possible carrying capacity. That's how I think. I'm like that in most games, really. Even in CoC, I cannot resist the urge to steal the evil occult tomes most of the time.

    If nothing else, you should take them to try and trade them for a psychic hood.

    Anywho, I hope my new reading material contains some useful spells or rituals or somesuch.

    Lucretia thinks looting the items and using them to fund a psychic hood is wise.

    Phinneas couldn't care less. If he finds a psychic hood, he'll obtain it. If he doesn't, he won't.

    IC overrides OOC.

    EDIT: Also, I don't think tomes can give you 'spells,' so to speak. I'm not sure how rituals are learned, though.
