IC: Wrath & Glory WH40K
Hey all, just throwing a poke out to any WH40K fans who might be interested in a Wrath & Glory game. I've been itching to get something going again since my RL group sort of fell apart. I have run the first scenario from the Litanies of the Lost supplement and it went pretty well so would be happy to do that again for sake of familiarity but I was also thinking it would be cool to do something more organic. If there is any interest please chime in here and let me know what type of game would be most appealing to you since W&G is pretty wide open.

Been getting my inspiration back for WH40k games and I haven't really gotten to try W&G a whole lot, so I'd be up to play.

Hmm. Wanted to try it but had bacd luck with Rogue Trader games in the past so have been reluctant.

I honestly cant remember how many games I've been on here that have survived past he first month or two, 40k is a harsh mistress. I'd still be up for giving it a try, none of my IRL group had any interest in it so I've not looked at it in forever.

This is a very good point, albeit I think the issue probably comes down in a lot of cases to differences between players as to what flavour of 40k people want to play. There's a massive difference between people wanting a Ciaphas Cain style tongue in cheek game compared to a more cerebral Eisenhorn approach compared to a highly Space Marine themed hack and slash.

In terms of me personally, I'd be tentatively interested in a 40K game on RPol as long as everyone's on the same page thematically. In terms of systems, I've not tried Wrath & Glory but would be interested to see what it's like, as long as it's not the sort of game which requires eighteen codices and a farseer to work out my Ballistic Skill.

Echoing the above. I'm tentatively interested, but the kitchen sink approach w&g takes can really muddy the thematic waters.

 Say what you will about the FFG games,  but when I see, say, Rogue Trader I know to expect exploration, base building, etc.

Encouraging to see so many quick replies.

So, my take on W&G is that it is far more simpler to run in person once everyone gets into a good sync with their rolls and shifting and spending wrath. It can be a little trickier in pbp but I've seen it work well before. Same kind of deal though, takes a bit to get into a rhythm and it can suck if there is constant turnover which as someone mentioned happens quite a bit with 40k pbp.

Once that rythm happens though, the game to me is more fun than the more theme specific systems like RT, OW, DH, etc...

Agreed, Wrath & Glory opens up all possibilities depending on what tier the group starts at. I personally would prefer to not go higher than tier 2 for a new group in pbp but if everyone was really keen on a space marine hack and slash I could be down for a T3 hack and slash type sandbox.

I'm pretty open to anything though, I have several published scenarios that work well with the standard Imperium/Inquisition loyalists and another that works well with a more radical group (space pirates. xenos mercs. etc)

I'd definitely be interested in a W&G game.

Outstanding, way more interest than I was expecting. I've updated an old game board from a previous attempt at this that garnered zero interest where we can continue discussions.

It can be found here:
