Kings 2:23-24 --- The Holy Bible
23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!" 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youth.

Don't forget the 40k pen and paper RPG that sold out its print run in six minutes and was then discontinued meaning hardly anyone will ever get to play it  ;)

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Do you mean Inquisitor?
I'd love to play a PC version of that....

Warhammer was a hobby of mine in like Grade 5-7, I had a Lizardmen and Skaven army. I was great at putting the figures together and what not but my painting wasnt that great. Overtime the whole Warhammer thing wore off but I wouldnt mind rping a game at all.

Ahhhh, Warhammer 40k. I remember when I did a 6 on 6 battle with me as the Imperial Guard. Now that was a truly epic battle. To bad the local Games Workshop closed down or I still would be playing that game.

Yeah they released a book a of rules where you could play as an inquisitor and his war band in a pen and paper style rpg. I would absolutely love to see that made into a PC game;
Some obnoxious NPC demands you carry out his request before he gives you any info.
Do you:
- Carry out his request
- Refuse
- Order the cretin to be dragged by his ears to the local arbiter cells
- Beat him unconscious then drag him off to your personal torturer until he confesses to anything and tells you what you want to know
- Kneecap the goit right there and tell him his other one's next, unless he talks

I think it would be a welcome change to traditional rpg roles.

I just set up a Warhammer RP thread on the Storytelling and Roleplaying Board. Enjoy!

Yup, thats basically how it plays.
Highlights from the sessions I've played include my character (an Adept, read scribe, and the least combat-competant class in the entire game) holding a frail and pervy old bishop at knifepoint and then slitting his throat when he tried to sic his Arcoflagellants on us, and the guardsman in the party shooting a bodyguard of an outrageously camp Tau-sympathiser through the leg with a grappling hook and then dragging him back as he tried to flee. Oh, and our Tech-priest pulled the pin on a grenade with his last breath and killed a bunch of obnoxious sisters of battle wannabes who simply refused to believe we worked for the inquisition... although in doing so he killed himself and injured our Arbitrator character so badly that he had to roll a new character anyway. My character had been shackled to a chair in the next room having his ear cut off (So now he's a scribe with a prosthetic ear. As Yokto mentioned to me the other day in IRC, people don't keep their looks long in the 40k universe).
