That new FTL smell

Game NameThat new FTL smell
Game SystemOther Roleplaying Games
ThemeKeys to the kingdom
FlavourSandbox schemes
Plot SummaryMusty. Not a lot of cinnamon, but sweet and filling like a scone. I think.

Rogue Trader! Sci-fi. Gothic, in the "you're inheriting this spaceship and good luck with the Franz Ferdinand impression" kind of way. Your time has come, whether you like it or not, and the same goes for the 5 other schlubs helping you. I say schlubs, i mean newly minted aristocracy but same difference. At least from now on, everything is your fault .

Some of you will have recognized 40k by now, right? GET OUT! Newbs, please come back. If you know little to nothing about it, are allergic to lore (or at least the lore section) and want some surprises, we'll get on smashingly.

I recommend using this to make your character. Any party composition is allowed, including multiple rogue traders; you'll each have smaller ships.

Bon voyage!

You had me entirely at "Rogue Trader", but sadly not a newb, least of all to 40k (and I'd be shocked to meet anyone who hasn't come across it at some point :P). If you have any spare places that you want filling or ever want to open up another RT game, keep me in mind

Posting interest. I'll have to check out the link a little later.

Oddly enough I actually am a noob to this system though I almost bought it once. So I will look at what I might want to play when i get home.

I'm kind of stoked at this idea, but also pretty intimidated by the idea of learning a whole new system. Mechanics are not my thing. I'll have to give it another look when I have a bit more brain power. Being newb friendly is encouraging, though.

So is that your way of saying you want people who haven't heard of the setting, not played the game, not previously opened the books, can play without referring to lore you haven't provided/ok'd ... or something else?

Curious enough to sign up and ask, as I haven't played RT, but I have tried making a few characters, and it'd be really hard to do that while being unable to make the association with "Rogue Trader! Sci-fi. Gothic."

Never played 40k on tabletop before but I've played the miniatures version before. I'd love to give it a try but I have nothing on the rules or character creation.
