    In relation to BSF? Or just from old rogue trader days?

    My Ambull pack arrived today - looks like a nice model, and the borewyrms are nice too. Could use a few more of those as counts-as Millisaurs for Necromunda (eyes up bluestuff). Rules for this separate quest seem to be almost as water-tight as the core game, but there are a couple of things that aren't quite clear:

    • Ambulls & Borewyrms treat other hostiles as if they were explorers (i.e. they'll attack them given the opportunity). Hostiles in turn treat Ambulls as explorers. There's a hole in that neat little exchange though - RAW other hostiles will not treat Borewyrms as explorers. I'm not sure if this is an oversight, or if it's intentional that even if they're in the process of being nommed on by a big maggot critter, other hostiles won't fight back. The two rules are stated immediately after one another, so it seems like an unlikely oversight, yet if it's true it's very strange. It's easy enough to just go through your order of operations to determine what they will do if they genuinely disregard the creature that is trying to chew their leg off, but logically I feel they should just fight the flippin' wyrm :LOL:

    • The Sett VII Precipice add-on space station thing has two sides - under construction and completed. I assume this is for a specific reason, and completion is triggered somehow, but it doesn't appear to be mentioned anywhere. It tells you to place it incomplete side up, then it's never mentioned again.

    Oh, and I guess there will be at least four expansions, purely based on how the Sett VII integrates with the Precipice board.

    I haven't got one yet but have watched a play through, i believe it is completed when you collect enough ambull parts to complete it's research, then it becomes another trading vessel complete with unique equipment.

    That doesn't appear to be mentioned anywhere in the books in the set. I guess that might be what's in the secret envelope I haven't opened.

    So can you mix in the encounter deck with the regular one or does it work differently? (I'm trying to determine how it works in a regular campaign)

    The exploration/encounter cards have different symbols at the bottom left - a black Ambull head or a purple one with a triangle behind it. The black ones you can just shuffle into your encounter deck during regular games to add variety. It says to exclude the purple ones.

    Has anyone read the novel AND played the game? Will I rob myself of anything if I read the novel before I play the game?

    Nah, you'll be fine. It's a big ol' batch of extended fluff really and won't spoil the game. It's also pretty good, though the author does like to call a spade a manual earth reallocation and removal enabelment component and there were several words I admit I had to look up. There is a niggling sense he was just being wilfully difficult with some of his writing. But maybe that's just me :LOL:

    cheers. I'm now well passed the first half of the book. I like it a lot. I also got used to the "complex" vocabulary.

    The setting of Precipice and the Blackstone Fortress is so 40k Mordheim.

    So, I've been trying to see if anyone has a 'formula' for brewing up custom adventurers that isn't "use something similar to the included adventurers", because we're discussing doing 2 and 3 man Deathwatch teams, or maybe running a Boarding Party of Scions with an Inquisitor, or something like that.

    Anyone got anything?

    Personally, I want to play through more of it to look for synchronicities, but if you track back through I think THIS thread, someone did a breakdown of dice odds and the core explorer characters.

    Edit: apparently not this thread. Another thread here. Will search for it while you search for it.

    Edit too: aha! It IS this thread!

    That helps narrow it down quite a bit.
