This could just be my combined love of the Dark Eldar and conventional role-playing games, but I think this chat room could be really fun if we pulled it off right. Does anybody have any ideas for how we could start or develop a system for this? Maybe there could be different classes and ranks, or it could just be an open RP with minimal rules. Either way, Dark Eldar role playing sounds like it could be pretty great.

I used to do a lot of text based roleplaying a few years ago. We would work off the WFRP stats and use creative writing, keeping one eye on our stats so things wouldn't be so over the top.

If you find an innovative way to make stats and simple game mechanics then this could be cool. Anything in mind?

I'm honestly not familiar with the WFRP stat system, but it sounds like something that would work. One of my fundamental ideas for The Arena would be to start with either making a character from a Kabal or a Wych Cult and having stats and progression based on either faction. After that, maybe we could create a basic setting consisting of some of the different levels of Commorragh and occasionally go to other worlds for raids and other missions. I also believe that however experience works, that ranks should correspond with gaining special weapons and eventually ascending the ranks of Kabalite Warriors and Wyches. This is all I have in mind so far though.

Creating a member of a wych cult sounds like fun, would we play this over the forum?

I think it'd be best to play over this forum. And could you show me the app, Tordeck? That sounds really cool.

Working on it now.

It will be accessible through one's profile.

And hey look,

down at the bottom (when you go to reply) you can roll dice.


EWP - well as soon as I set it up fully that is

Oh I see! That's great that they through in a Character Sheet tab. I think it'd be interesting if we could maybe come up with an RPG that only uses d6s like Warhammer, and maybe have ranks or weapon options instead of leveling up, both of which we can purchase with experience points or whatever we want them to be called. Maybe for the basic attributes we could do kinda like they did in that game Dark Heresy and use some, if not all, of the infantry characteristics from warhammer to RP with if we wanted. I have lots of experience with Dungeons and Dragons but the two options I see us having is either having a Game Master running things such as in traditional table-top or a more open-ended and freelance communication system like MMOs. Anyone have a preference or additional suggestions?

WFRP 2E, along with the Old World Bestiary has all one needs to make a Dark Elf, and the system is fairly compatible with RT and DH.

Pm me if you'd like to get PDFs of the now out of print 2nd ed stuff.

I'm not going to participate in this because I would get sucked in.

That said, why do you need stats? On the text-based role-playing I've done it the past, stats weren't needed. They are a crutch. If it's dramatically correct for you to die, then it's time to die.

My two cents.

I myself have slightly adapted the Dark Heresy character creation tables and made a complete Dark Eldar career path for warriors & wyches

Please do not post anything else on this thread, it is over a year old. Thanks, Cavash.
