Dark Heresy: The Oremor Affliction IC
On the agri-world of Oremor, at the very fringes of the Malfian sub-sector, acolytes of the Inquisition and their allies must confront a sinister conspiracy that threatens to shake the very foundations of the Calixis sector.
You can say that again, Ellipsis. Between the lucky rolls on the "Horror Within" special abilities on my end (the Plague Swarms are no fun) and the perfectly timed natural '1' you just rolled, things have definitely swung your way.
It seems like the 'red-shirt' NPCs of the Warhammer 40K universe, like in the Gran Pallazzar arena encounter have a will of their own to survive as well, and I'm certainly not pulling punches in either encounter!
Rook, just to clarify Wardja was hoping to assist Sav for his last test. Thus I was hoping to grant an additional degree of success to his roll. If I need to make some sort of roll to achieve that, or if you would like me to role-play the attempt let me know. Thanks!
Wardja, I'd rule that since the mechanics for this type of test during the Tournament can use either Deceive or Intimidate, you would be able to employ Intimidate as an Assistance skill, since you are trained it.
No need to make a die roll, as Assistance reduces the skill test difficulty for Savalos by one step, and provides an extra degree of success if his roll is successful. The roll still can be negated by Leprade making a successful Scrutiny roll with greater degrees of success, however.
Just the same, please roleplay your interaction with Leprade, I'm a sucker for good roleplay.
Sorry if it seems like I fell off the face of the earth last week, everyone, I've just been adjusting to getting old.
Wife finally ordered stubborn me to the doctor to get some serious back pain checked and it turns out I have a nice touch of arthritis in the base of my back that was flaring up. Made sitting (more the standing afterward, really) pretty uncomfortable, so I took a little computer vacation.
Things seem to be improving finally, so back to the cogitator and posting!
First order of business, getting poor Vincent out of the mud!
