Ok, first thing, has anyone seen Vyper? Anyone know him on facebook? I don't really want too much to happen before he gets here.
Secondly, loot. I apologise for not making this clear from the start, but to be honest I hadn't really though about it. This campaign will be very light on loot, primarily because you all had to pay in advance for your items, and I don't want that to be made irrelevant by looting. I'm not saying their wont be any loot, but here's a few guidelines on how it'll work:
1) Ammo for weapons you already have can be found as loot anywhere that it makes sense to find it. If you run into a weapons cache or something, then you'll refill all your ammo, and that is it. I may try to keep track of ammo, but knowing me I'll forget, so I think it's simpler for now to assume you keep stumbling across it.
2) Combat equipment (weapons, armour, etc.) can only be found after a fight, so you'll have to earn it.
3) Even taking (2) into account, I'm going to make it a rule that most Tau equipment (and likely a lot of the native human stuff, since they've been trading with the Tau) has biometrics installed to prevent you from grabbing a pulse rifle first chance you get. Generally speaking, I only want you to take interesting loot, and only from interesting places. So feel free to grab an Ethereal's honour blade as a trophy if you find one, but I'll come up with excuses to stop you from taking stuff from random mooks.
4) I fully expect that you will wind up stealing a vehicle at some point. I have absolutely no problem with this, and think it's a great idea.
