comment What do you do when a player intimidates your campaign boss to surrender?
+1 for alternative solution also, but agree that while the GM is always right, directly opposing a PC's plan as well as the RAW is often a quick way to ruin the fun despite your intentions.

Short-sighted, selfish characters are perfectly fine in campaigns, how else would you describe the group's rogue?

comment How does one become a god?
Not having watched any Doctor Who, that TvTropes link doesn't seem to explain any kind of godhood; could you give a better example?

Ok, I was only asking because of the second paragraph in the Q.

expanded description of Horde rules and Critical Damage: the author's point remains unchanged but now contains more information for those who don't know of the game

I have to say I'm a little confused by your claim too, @gomad. Is the Deathwatch example given by Skeith (which models combat between 2-100s of people) not a direct disproof of your theory? Unless you are arguing that large-scale conflict requires abstractions (e.g. Hordes) which are not present in small-scale conflicts, which prevents unification.

I'd suggest merging this with MadMAxJr's answer, or adding to your own to include distance.

comment Death odds in Deathwatch
Well, thanks to the ability to 'burn Fate points' to escape certain death, not that often. But our 4-Marine team did complete a 4-game scenario featuring quite a few Genestealers with about 4 Fate points remaining in the entire group, and a new bionic hand and bionic eye.

@Skeith and if you still want to scare your players: Genestealers have armour penetration on their claws plus the immense WS to make any fight in close quarters terrifying.

@Skeith done! I think before finding those pages we just figured that this way made more sense, as otherwise a Space Marine can be killed by a paperclip if he was hit by enough of them, as they'd eventually overload the armour+toughness value.
