Looks good so far.  Keep in mind that I only ran one DH session and that consisted of starting characters derailing the plot at every turn, so I don't know what half of these talents and traits are, or the entire SoB faith system for that matter.

ZZ, Xander, how are your characters coming along?  Also, Kashi, you get one reroll for stats.

I'd been looking over the rulebook, mostly, but I can start work as soon as I've got ruling on one small issue...

What about chapters not covered by the core rulebook? Say, Scythes of the Emperor?
Also, do you use IRC and the Chaosforge channel? It's usually useful for GMs and players to get in touch quickly...

I'm not sure if I can access the IRC from school, but I'll try to start going on it after school and on weekends.  Rites of Battle lets you make custom chapters and I have scans of the chapter creation section, but it's rather limited, but that could be due to the fact that I was trying to make the traitor legions and the Angry Marines. :p

Well, that's always something... Scythes are more of a Codex-friendly chapter (if a bit low on numbers).

Nah, I'll leave 'em as they are. Maybe it doesn't look like it, but I'm quite satisfied with the stat rolls I got.

Gah, I just realized I forgot to spend 500XP... because I generated character with normal Ascension rules, giving me 13500 XP to spend. Gonna fix it tomorrow.

I'm afraid I have to back out of this one.  Life has a strange way of catching on you...

Alright, sorry to hear about that, thelaptop.

Gargulec, looking good, just a couple of things.  The Deathwatch will have you covered for standard ammo.  Also, any ideas as to how an Ordo Malleus inquisitor came to work with an Ordo Xenos organization of space marines?  Lastly, this is going to be extremely combat-heavy.  The average Space Marine has 40 T, unnat toughness x2, 20 wounds, 8 armor (10 on the torso) and the inability to bleed out.  Things are going to be a bit harder for you.

Edit:  Unless Ascension or errata says otherwise (haven't had a chance to look at it yet), you can only sanctify primitive or chain weapons.

First: Blood of the Marty specifies that any melee weapon of Good or higher quality may be sanctified. And since there are already sanctified weapons in cannon (deamonhammer)...

Second: The distinctions between Holy Ordos are very loose, and based more on personal interest- Inquisitor of any Ordo has the right to investigate in case of any kind of threat. And given the fact that Pistis Sophia has been elevated to the rank of an Inquisitor only recently, it is even more likely that she will be still unsure to which of the Ordos she wants to belong. She identifies herself as one of the Daemonhunters only because it was the Threat Beyond she has pursued until now.

And I know that it is going to be harder for me... but, on the other hand, Sophia is really, really competent in the hand-to-hand combat, and power sword pretty much negates the armor advantage.

Okay, I will give you that you have the max possible starting WS of a Blood Angel or Black Templar...

My last concern is Squad Mode and Solo Mode abilities.  I'm thinking either give you the codex ones, but reducing cohesion, or just ignoring them completely.  When I did this in person, nobody remembers to use them and they did just fine...until they got shredded by genestealers in Final Sanction.

I would like to also note that this WS should be counted as 65 because of the best quality weapon I have, and I can boost it by further 10 when frenzied :P.

Plus, I have a few of the most powerful combat talents that exist.
