[Discussion] Who would be interested in a Warhammer 40k/Fallout session?

I've been thinking for a while about making a Fallout game, but since I love the idea so much there's no way I'm GM'ing for it, I wanna play it. There's also the tiny issue that I've never hosted a game before, but let's ignore unpleasantness.

Its actually quite simple to get Pathfinder to work with Fallout. All you need is to slightly modify.... ok, I don't remember, but it's an Apocalypse engine based off of Pathfinder. Brownie points to whoever can find it! I have it somewhere in my bookmarks...

Anyways, therein lies my Fallout idea. There's also another one, 40k. If you don't know what that is, no problem. Look it up and then continue reading. But first praise the Emperor.

I was thinking about a small mercenary band, travelling through the galaxy in a small, sturdy starship with a Warp drive and an Astropath to talk to people. The reason I chose mercs is because a game with just Astartes or just Imperial Guard or whatever would be boring. This way, you can play anything. You can play an exiled Space Marine. A mercenary Ork. An Eldar corsair. A regular human. Whatever you want except for Tyrannids because screw those things.

So. Who likes these ideas? I'm not promising anything right now, not even a game or something, this is just a discussion to see what you guys come up with and what you think about the premise. Maybe later I'll be up for playing these scenes when I get it all written down and junk, and I'll take you guys with me!

    The warhammer thing sounds interesting. I've never really tried anything like it so it would definitely be new. In fact Ice never really had much to do with warhammer i general so it's a world and game I'm very unfamiliar with. How does the 40k system compare to others? Is it a d20, d10, d6 or someother based system entirely?

      There are 40k games out there but I'm not familiar with them. What I was thinking was taking Pathfinder or it's futuristic equivalent and modifying some of the rules and items to fit the universe better.

      For example, a standard weapon in the Space Marine legions is the Bolter, which is essentially a machine gun rocket launcher. There are chainsaw swords, guns that shoot tiny shuriken, etc. I'm not sure how to go about this, like I said, so right now I'm gonna go research the best way to go about this.

      If you haven't yet checked out 40k, go ahead! It's a great universe 40 years in the making that is very easy to get lost in :)

        I think it would be easier to use a pre made game for the purpose(should it already) than adapting a different one. The reason being is if you adapt, you'll probably find yourself adapting mechanics all the time when you want to do something. Need npcs/enemies? Have to adapt them. Want to use a specific type of ability decide on an equivalent and adapt it etc. Plus a qucik google search suggested there is a system already in place :)

          That was quick lol. It looks like Rogue Trader is more like what I was looking for. There are no restrictions, you own your own starship, and you're free to do whatever you wish in the universe.

            Yes, definitely sounds like there would be a lot less adapting involved in that regard :P

              I'll do some more research and then return! I'll make a new post and everything when it's all ready :)
