Re: Scourge and “your dudes” story hooks

That sounds like a good way to use some spare bits—break-away hulls falling way from UCM ships.

Re: Scourge and “your dudes” story hooks

In reverse order: 3. is the bloodlust that takes hold of the old ones. So is covered in the lore. Scourge get eutenised, if they lose hold over their hosts. 2. Is actually 3 ideas. PHR/Shaltari could disable ships with their tech without destroying them. So this unknown source might aswell. The ori...

Re: Scourge and “your dudes” story hooks

My pet theory is that there's a faction that's made up of the remnants of other species that the Scourge used up before getting to the humans, and that they're trying to build up for revenge. Unfortunately the humans seem to be getting to it first, and they really can't cope with the idea that they...

Scourge and “your dudes” story hooks

I’m one of those gamers who always wants to have my own chapter, my own mydudes, my OC Donutsteel subfaction. Scourge don’t seem very accommodating to my gaming needs. What ideas do you all have for personalizing a Scourge fleet or dropforce? I’d love to hear some new ideas. Here are some I came up ...

Re: Prewar EAA history and story hooks

From what we know about Shaltari, I doubt they would have given any humans (even loyalists) any access to "protected" worlds and it's unlikely they gave them any technology beyond what they already had. I mean, maybe if there was a (for lack of better term) cult who worshiped the Shaltari and asked...

Re: Prewar EAA history and story hooks

Once the White Sphere hacker the planet, I’d expect a lot of people would have fled off-grid. Surely the wealthy and political elite would have some unlisted getaway planet somewhere. I think it’s reasonable to assume the EAA would consider all publicly known colonies security-compromised, and would...

Re: Prewar EAA history and story hooks

Well Mercenaries helped out the White Sphere to escape on Earth, so I think you are on to something! I’m not sure how I would represent that on the tabletop. Perhaps simply adding some EAA ships as allies to a Shaltari fleet, although I’d love to see an upgraded human-Shaltari “White Star” vessel f...

Prewar EAA history and story hooks for “my dudes” subfactions

I’ve been thinking of ways to create my own “chapter” or “mydudes” in the dropverse while still fitting into the background. I’m hoping we can come up with a lot of story hooks and work out some issues with the setting. Unfortunately, we don’t know much about the Shaltari, PHR, or Scourge background...
