    So I'm planning on during short, sweet, little bug stomp for my players to get them situated with the Dark Heresy Game. I am also planning on putting them on Xomula.

    I was wondering if the good denizens of /tg/ could help me come up with a short scenario for them. So far, I have two ideas:

    Idea 1) A local storage facility in the Hab Dome their in has become over run with some kind of baddies. They are being paid to clear it out.

    Idea 2) A local fishing business has sent out a call for armed help, and says they are willing to pay. They say they have been having some problems with the local wild life. Secretly, the son of the owner of the fishing business has taken an artifact he found on the shore. Denizens of the deep raise up to take it back. QUE SIEGE.

    Also, if anyone would like to make up any Xomula special equipment for the PCs to buy, it would be most helpful. Like, say, a Xomula Brand Environmental Protection Suit. Or Xomulan Plague Militia gear.

    >Bug stomp

    So I'm assuming you're requiring all your players to bring 12 extra characters right?

    You're starting them on XOMULA? Are you sure you don't want to... build up with something easier in the sector. Well if you want to go full on with the OHGODOHGOD, send them to one of the Demon moons, Tech-Priest have been seeing some weird stuff in their telescopes.
    "Hey this doesn't look too bad, wonder what the tech-priest were worried abou- OHGODNURGLEDEMONSEVERYWHERE."

    And you have to feature tech-priest in your game. The higher up ones. And you have to get the tone that they spend every waking moment in fear just right.

    My current idea is that they're the replacement team for the last Inquisitorial team that was sent to Xomula. Also, everyone on the planet already knows they're there for exactly that. When they first come off the landing thunderhawk, they'll be greeted by one of the ruling Magos and a full honor guard from the Plague Militia.

    The real secret is that the PCs are really just the 'face' team the Inquisition tries to keep on the planet at all time, to keep people happy. The face team's entire job is basically to prove that the Inquisition is there, keeping people safe. In all truth, all they really do is the occasional odd job from the locals. The real Inquisitoral teams are deep under hiding, and from every Ordos imaginable. The only reason the planet hasn't been Exterminatused is because it's to valuable a resource to destroy. Also, I'll try and start them off slow. No real big Xeno or demonic incursions till they get ready for it.

    They will die.

    Easiest Xomula mission... Well you could have them try to get rid of the snake things that get on the tripods on the mobile cities, otherwise whole city goes into deadly water. Also they must avoid DEADLY WATER. And the snakes are damn deadly too, can't get their suits ripper or deadly disease will kill them.

    You could have them meet a Deep One initiate, the ones that have to survive naked on Xomula for 5 days.
    >> Xomula DM 06/28/09(Sun)14:44 No.5030186
    Not if they're cautious enough. I already showed most of them the basic information about Xomula. They seemed excited. Well, one of them just screamed a lot. And another one wept. But they were tears of excitement, I was sure of it.
    >> Anonymous 06/28/09(Sun)14:45 No.5030191
    To be fair, the players should expect it. It's DH after all. They shall just die far much more, and in far deadlier ways than usual.
    >> Xomula DM 06/28/09(Sun)14:48 No.5030217
    They're called Slither Stabs. I stated those actually. I was already planning on throwing a couple of those in if I decided to do the warehouse idea. Wound up having to nerf the Slither Stabs acid spit though. Turns out 1d10+5 E damage is to much.

    What exactly is Xomula? I've been wanting to try DH but haven't gotten around to it.

    Weirdly enough, Orkz will probably be the least dangerous threat. Could have the locals complain about their worriment of the Ork moon, being as they thing that's the biggest threat, and the faces go and deal with it while the real Inquisition deals with the real threat. Not much they could do, but they could kill a few Orkz for show.

    So, let's have a vote. Should I go Orkz, Infested Warehouse, or Fishery Siege?

    It's a planet in the Tiji sector, look it up on 1d4chan. Here's the threads to just Xomula.

    Fishy siege should introduce them to the right theme quite well. EVERYTHING IS DEADLY. EVERYTHING.
    >> Xomula DM 06/28/09(Sun)14:54 No.5030290
    Also, just to clarify: I'm giving all the PCs extra equipment. As in, I'm giving them the Inquisitor's Handbook, and telling them to pick out their equipment from there. Anything they want. Except from the Holy Ordos section.

    ...Denzines assault ship, players starve them off and impress locals are then asked for a similar problem with the warehouse, as a bit of revenge on PCs the attackers send an abandoned spaceship directly to the Ork Moon, players must now stop it before Orkz spread everywhere?

    Step it up a notch. Ship is also filled with deadly disease and/or Plague Bearer/s. This isn't that bad for the Orkz, being immune to disease and such but for the players...

    is there actual stats for a plaguebearer?
    >> Xomula DM 06/28/09(Sun)15:15 No.5030455
    So, that's one vote for the Fishery Siege then?
    >> Xomula DM 06/28/09(Sun)15:17 No.5030470
    Yes, along with all the other minor demons. It's in the main rulebook. I used the Plaguebear's vomit special attack as a base for the Slither Stab's plasma spit attack. In retrospect, that should have been my tip off that it was to deadly right there.

    If you do Fisher Siege, then if a player falls in the water you turn the rape knob up to eleven. The seas are filled with nasty shit. The fishermen better make this damn clear.
    >> Xomula DM 06/28/09(Sun)15:25 No.5030560
    ...I wounder if I can make an actual, physical rape knob to give the players a visible way to see how much shit they are in.

    It can even have labels on it. 1 can be 'Generally Okay' 2 is 'Still Okay' 3 is 'Let's get dangerous'

    4: 'We can handle this'
    5: 'Soldier on'
    6: 'Getting a bit out of hand here'
    7: 'Might need some help here'
    8: 'Oh shit'
    9: 'Kiss your arse good bye'

    Well, since we really only got one vote, Fishery Siege it is. Thanks for all the help /tg/. Got to get to work on that Rape Knob now. And writing up the adventure of course.

    No problem. Tell us how it goes. Now should we archive this in case you need it as reference?

    I have a lot of this already written down, but it would be great if you could archive it, thanks. I'll be sure to tell you guys how it goes. Also, I'll try and put up some pics of the Rape Knob.
