Hey guys there aren't any RPG's running at the moment (at least while the star war RPG is postponed pending Ricardo's recovery) so I thought I would run a short RPG encounter set in the WH40K universe. Its set on a Hive world similar to (but not actually) Necromunda.
The positions available are Leader,(1) Heavy,(2) and Ganger (any remaining).
Background and description
Position(leader heavy etc)
In terms of Weapon the following are allowed for everyone, autogun, lasgun, shotgun, crossbow, bow, (and sword knives axes etc) as well as the pistol equivilent of any of these.
No special ammo.
Leaders can additionally take one of the following boltpistol, plasma pistol, chainsword, frag grenades.
Heavies can additionally take one of the following a heavy stubber, a flamer, a boltgun, a sniper rifle or a grenade launcher (frag only).
Equipment: You can take up to two bits of equipment. Nothing that requires constant maintanence. (be sensible)
Skills: Three areas you are particularly adept at or traits you have. These could include tactical awareness, knife fighter, gunfighter, very tough very strong medic, good at trading negotiating, chemistry, tracking, training animals, hiding, quick draw or what ever.
Leaders can take four skills.
Heavies automatically have to take the skill specialist (so only get two optional skills).
Its first come first served as to who is leader heavy or whatever..
Its up to the leader to name the gang. He will also have initial say as to character positions. Other than that it is up to the gang to decide whether they follow his leadership or not. The encounter will be short and bloody but there maybe an option for a sequal depending on how it goes.

one heavy taken then
Name: Marcus Santiago
Background and description :
Sergeant Marcus is a former member of the Imperial Guard. He gained a reputation of loving the rush of close and bloody close combat. In fact, during one of the missions he was assigned, his squad was ambushed by a small group of orks. His entire squad was cut down, leaving just him up against an ork nob and boy. As he charged, the nob grabbed him and ripped off his left arm before throwing him away. As he flew he drew his shotgun and fired at the boy, smashing in its face. Before he blacked out he saw a group of toy soldiers descending on his position.
He awoke later, to find his entire left arm made of bionics, and that he was in the sick bay.
He joined the gang however when a former member told him that he knew of a way to find his wife, who had gone missing on this planet during a attack his group had defended. After
that member had been killed in a bionics deal gone bad, Marcus has been stuck here.
His style is heavily cover based, focusing on slowly getting forward or covering his long range comrades. Despite this he is never one to miss a brawl.
He is fairly short, muscle bound. He has many scars etc. He always has a camo suit on at all times and a bandanna.Short Black hair, brown eyes. Typical Soldier.
Position : Ganger
Weapon : Shotgun, Axe
Equipment : , Smoke Grenades ,Camo
Skills : Hiding, Agile, Brawling
No carapace armour (no armour of any kind actually). Smoke grenades are just about ok. You can give yourself an additional side arm if you want (pistol or close quarter weapon).
Your arm is bionic but has the same abilities as a normal arm.
Yep thats fine.
Name: "Saint Death" Ben Prince
Background: Growing up in the rural countryside of a farming world, Ben hunted and killed animals by the age of four. By the age of ten, he was one of the best hunters on the planet. When he was drafted, Sniper duty came immediately, as did training which eventually allowed him to hit a bulls eye at several thousand yards. His group was assigned to training duty on this Hive world, but due to bureaucratic mess ups, the entire group was deleted from all memory banks. Now he shoots for food once again, but now what he is shooting is not usually the food... Thin, short, brown hair, brown eyes, brown(Not dark really) skin. Not particularly remarkable in any way, except for the beard that he has grown.
Weapons: Sniper Rifle, a Lasgun, and a laspistol.
Equipment: Gray Camo Gear, water+food for several days. Stand for the Rifle.
Skills: Marksman, Stealth, Tactician
Well, I'll take the leader role then, as no-one else has snatched it up yet. I'm going to edit my character into this post momentarily, I'm just posting now to reserve my position.
Name: Jarren Kell
Description: Tall and lithe, with shoulder length black hair. Effervescent blue eyes, and suprisingly refined features, Jarren would look somewhat out of place in the hive if it were not for his ragged, torn clothing. Jarren has enemy blood smeared under his eyes as if it were camo paint, and a grim look hangs ever present on his face. Judging from Jarren's frame, one would not pick him as the leader of a hive gang, but his lean form hides suprising agility and grace, which often catches his enemies by surprise.
Background: Jarren used to belong to the hive city. That was until he brutally murdered a high society man who took it upon himself to sleep with Jarren's girlfriend. Only hours after Jarren heard of what had gone on, there was a knife stuck through the nobleman's heart. It was a little known fact however, that the heart was no longer in in the nobleman's body at the time...it was in fact several feet away on the floor. Jarren was trialed by the high courts and sentenced to a fate worse than death - exile to the underhive below.
Weapon: Bolt Pistol, Serrated combat knife.
Equipment: Bio Booster, Infra-Red Goggles. (taken from Necromunda book)
Skills: Gunfighter, Knifefighter, Tactics, Gang Diplomacy.
-Hope it's okay
