As many of you are aware of, I've been working on the Deathwatch system for quite some time, nearly six months of actual coding (I took some time away from it for a while). I know there is much interest in the line of books produced by Fantasy Flight Games and I'd like to conduct a small poll of interest from hero lab users regarding which additional system you'd like to see added to the Deathwatch system. I basically want to see which system gets the most votes for support should I decide to expand this data later on.

Telenikros,

That is the goal of having this software. I am a gamemaster, I only run games, and Hero Lab helps cut down my preparation time immensely. Instead of doing everything by hand and spending hours pouring over books I can assemble my NPCs quickly with what they need to have. Deathwatch isn't a hard system to prep, but I like being able to use the tactical console to run encounters and manage important character elements. It makes my life easier overall, so the hours I've put into this are well worth it. Mathias has helped me immensely with his explanations of how things work within the mechanics.

I voted for "Only war" because in the grim future of the 41st millenia, that's all there is.

It will be interesting to see the final results of this consensus. Only war is a pretty nice addition to the line of books. I am hoping for an Only Waaagh! System though as well. I'd love to see fantasy flight games release an all Ork RPG. I used to enjoy games of gorkamorka and love customizing Ork models. I use fantasy Orc models quite a bit in my conversion work. I use black orcs as nobs and ard boys. The heavy plate makes the models easy to identify in large mobs. I think FFG has covered all the humans of the 41st millennium now, so hopefully we will get some xenos books too.

I had two I wanted to vote for, Rogue Trader and Black Crusade. I ended up flipping a coin. Looks like I should have voted for Black Crusade, even if only to show SOME interest in it.

I've built this data set with expandability in mind. I may end up adding all of the systems eventually when time permits me to do so. I am mainly conducting this straw poll to see which one people would want added next once the core of Deathwatch is done. I'm pretty sure I will have to do Rites of Battle next as there are still many systems from that book that need implementation. Such as vehicles and custom chapters.

I see a large amount of interest shown in all the game systems except black crusade, Dark Heresy might not be a bad starting point for expansion.

Ok so Dark Heresy won in the poll, not too bad. I'll consider starting to add the first edition materials that I have once Deathwatch is knocked down.

Huge necromancy here but must ask:

Is there anything for Warhammer 40k Roleplay in the wild?

The past is a rudder to guide us, not an anchor to hold us back.
