Hey guys, reading a coupla threads on here about Inquisitor and reading a coupla threads about modeling and converting Inquisitors has really inspired me to start designing me own Inquisitor character.
I have the living rulebook so i can easily choose weapons etc etc.
I have a coupla questions. Writing in the view point of an Inquisitor, is it hard?...for those who have done it, do you just take your Inquisitor squad and an objective and write about it?
Inquisitor squads....how are its members recruted?...Obviously it starts with the Inquisitor then how does it build?...
1. No, it's no harder than writing from the point of view of any other character. You just have to put your own point of view aside, and imagine how a dude 40,000 years in the future who has a really tough but neccesary job which he has been trained do from childhood must feel.
2. An inquisitor can requisition the services of any imperial servant (besides a space marine) this means that, certainly for guardsmen, ecclesiastical priests etc, he can just say 'you.. come with me' and expect instant obedience. Rogue traders, bounty hunters etc might be a bit harder to convince, since they might not recognise an inquisitor's authority.. but he still technically has authority over them, and can make life very difficult for them if they refuse.
Cheers, thanks lads.
Your best bet with doing fluff on an Inquisitor is to ask yourself three questions 1. What Ordoes is he from 2. Is he a radical or a puritan and 3 what Philosiphy he follows (The basic Philosiphes are in the Inquisitor rulebook.) Once youve answered those questions hopefully the rest will fall into place.
Ask not the ruleboys a question for they shall give you three answers each true and terrifying to behold
Personally, as with roleplaying, I'd go the other way round myself. Create a character concept first, then pick an ordo, faction etc. 'Horusian radical inquisitor' is a little overdone as a character concept.Originally Posted by Dilandau
Remember also that the philosophies in the book are nothing like the end of it. There are degrees and differences within the factions, and there are some people who fall outside the factions altogether, or who combine more than one. My favourite was the Thorian/Istvaanian from one of the expansions.
