Why not just bribe them?

With the resources and money the characters are likely to have by the time of Game of Shadow and Sun what's to stop them arranging to take the less risky option of bribing, blackmailing or Psionically Manipulating Tobian Nobles into giving The Pirates A Trial as A PR Stunt the less risky option of b...

Just for a laugh I'm writing up but will never use A What-if Campaign where Darokyn only betrayed The Imperium a mere 30 weeks ago not 30 years ago and want to know if you think A Fleet of 7 200 ton, 5 100 ton, 5 400 ton, 3 300 ton, 3 500 ton, 3 500 ton and 1 1,000 ton ships is a appropriate very la...

Re: Stuff on my Uber-Races Diplomats

Thoughts: Social Standing - SOC is kind of irrelevant when looking at an alien species. They's have an effective SOC in Imperial Space but it's driven by the Imperium's view of them not any 'innate' quality. The skills seem a bit unnecessarily high; yes Diplomat and Persuade are 'core skills' but e...

Re: Help me find what I need

Official stuff won't work with your usual style of play. Given incidents you've related in the past withoin a couple of sessions your players will have the best equipment, super-psions and a fleet of ships with hundreds of loyal minions. The offical materials were not written with that level of rew...

Are they too ambitious

I'm worried that A GM who I've never mentioned before here's players are too ambitious. They've been playing for just short of a week past 30 in-game years, Drinax was officially recognized as the strongest of the 4 lesser nations just short of a month past 4 years before the current in-game. They h...
