    Default Seeds of Liberation - OOC

    Seeds of Liberation



    Ok so Mechanics for creating your character:

    Roll 9 sets of 2d10 for your stats, with one reroll for the lowest. Assign the rolls to which ever stats you wish.

    Roll Wounds as normal.

    Starting Wealth: 9d10.

    Starting gear and equipment as standard for Imperial Psyker.

    Sanctioning Side Effect: Visions of Terror: You have escaped the clutches of the Imperial sanctioning process intact. More than most can boast, yet still memories of relentless testing and brutal suffering dwell at the edge of your conciousness.
    Gain 1d5-1 Insanity and 1d5-1 Corruption.

    Divination: "In what you know, believe." Start play with Favoured of the Warp and 9 Fate points.
    In this for the long run you need some power of destiny.

    Tajah Ignotus



    Image by Frozen-photo on Deviantart


    Note: Her surname is not the one she was born with. As a hunderhive gang kid, she never had any reason to know or remember hers, and when on the run, she tried to change name as often as possible. Long ago, she went by the nickname "Mouse", but nobody has used that in quite a while. "Ignotus" ("Unknown") was picked for her as a surname after the sanctioning, purely for bookeeping reasons.

    There are things.
    She remembers when she gathered with the other hive children, the ragtag band of orphans, strays and young crooks that she grew up with, in some abandoned tunnel or room, playing at scaring each others with frightening stories, and how someone would inevitably start their tale saying “There are things.”. She had thought that she would live just like the others she saw around her: a probably short, brutal life, trying to get by as best as she could in the bowels of the hive undersociety. She had not imagined, then, that she could ever be one of those things.

    The first time it happened, she freaked out. She was twelve, and about to die. The easy con job…turned out to be not so easy after all. There was a big man pointing a boltgun at her, and he was definitely going to fire. He would have, but then something happened. It was the strangest sensation, as if her mind had just made a tumble while shifting, and for a moment, there were figures in the air, screaming and twisting and howling… and that was enough to send the brute running without looking back. It was enough to make her faint, too, to be honest. When she regained consciousness, the first thing she did was looking for a way to disappear. She had a clear understanding of what happened to people who could do the sort of things she had just done. They are taken away. And they don’t come back, ever .

    It didn’t work out, of course. She wouldn’t be here if it had worked out. She was too young, too frightened, and without the faintest idea of how to handle the things that happened to her from time to time. She was fourteen when she got caught. The man that caught her didn’t even have to make much of an effort: it was one of those times when her abilities didn’t work at all. She was dragged and packed aboard one of the Black Ships. The ones that take you away and never let you back, according to her childhood friends. There…there some other things happened, but there’s no use talking about that, even if, every time she thinks about it, she feels a dull rage at how wrong it was. The important thing of that trip, though, is that she kept her head down and she survived it. Tajah is nothing but resourceful.

    And now? Now she is a part of the Inquisition. But she doesn’t like to let people know what she is and what she can do. Every time someone figures it out, people get that look in their eyes, and she can almost hear the half-frightened whisper “There are things. Disgusting things that aren’t even human. You have no idea of what they can do.” So, she keeps up appearances. She behaves like just any other hive scum, like she is just the muscle, and has ended where she is by mere chance. Anything to avoid being looked at that way.


    PERSONALITY

    She found that the best way to hide is under the appearance of a tough, worldly-wise woman that doesn’t take crap by anyone. And really, she is not entirely lying by behaving that way: it’s what she was out to become before the whole mess happened. And no one really needs to know about the whole mess, if not strictly necessary. Right?


    APPEARANCE

    She is 19 years old, but looks older, pale and not very healthy. She has medium length, straight black hair and dark eyes, and she is a bit underweight, but definitely not in an appealing way. Her nose is a little crooked, from having been broken when she was 13 (by a merchant who had caught her stealing...but that's another tale).

    I've got a character sheet! I've got a character sheet!

    Well, -ish. Don't look at the equipment for now, I just copy-pasted Marcus' sheet and modified it, so I'll get around to downgrade my equipment tomorrow. All the rest though should be in order.

    I've also copied my background over to the second post, overwriting the awkward mistake that I obviously never made, because now there's no trace of it.

    EDIT: I was thinking.... iiiinteresting that she got Corruption points during her Sanctioning, innit? It does actually tie up quite nicely with an hypothesis I was working on...

    I did actually have a quick look on Deviantart... but I couldn't find a thin girl who wasn't very pretty. There a distinct lack of plain/ugly girls portraits out there.

    Ok I've looked over your sheet quickly and it looks good. You might want to change the spent XP count to 400 rather than 3300 but That I believe is the only thing I could spot.

    Ready to, I have a plan-ish for the first mission. I just want to check with you before we start, the first mission takes place on a feral world with little to no space traffic. The reason I wanted to check before we begin is I don't think it would be a good place to try and begin a revolution and I wasn't sure what you expectations for the start were.

    I am a rank one psyker with a grand total of three minor psychic powers, no decent weapons or armour to speak of and no contacts, of course I'm not expecting to start a revolution in the first mission. I fully expected to start this as a "standard" DH game.

    And Tajah isn't aware that's what she's going to be doing in the future, either. At the moment she's interested in keeping her head down and survive. But I'm confident that, somewhere down the line, something will happen....

    Ah excellent. *Begins Maniacal Cackling*

    I will however be making situations that allow for your character to question the Imperium. I mean if you are a dirty heretic that is.

    Ok last thing before we get started: Have you got a better name for the game than Seeds of Liberation? I'll take suggestions on this one.

    Edit: Um no reason... No reason at all. Though I've always liked Jayne so You'd be better of imagining Santo as Badger.

    Also Pleegawa is totally not Hoth.

    Also Also feel free to roll Psyniscience here or there or anywhere.

    Psyniscience: Tajah feels nothing from the strange scribe. He seemed empty, hollow. The faint signature of the others were there to feel, but not the scribe. Whatever he was, he wasn't a psyker.

    Oh, I suddenly remembered: can I fluff my sword as a big-ass knife? I got rid on the staff because, let's be honest, she would have gotten rid of the staff, in order not to be the Under-hive laughing stock. The sword, as well, doesn't really fit the image.

    Sure, though a big-ass knife, when it's that big you might as well call a sword.

    http://www.minitaly.com/paolo/pic/1_...yromaniac1.jpg

    Plus sword totally fit with under-hivers, more metal makes bigger holes.

    Also Yay necromunda woop woop.
    But fluff-wise feel free to have your equipment as you like.

    I'm sure it's just me, but in my mind a sword is distinctively different from a big-ass knife.

    Also, yes, I'm trying to babysit a scribe. Well, he's been the only one who hasn't been horrible to me.
