/tg/, a friend of mine intends to bring me into a Dark Heresy game he's about to start, wherein the players are all chefs starting a fast food franchise across the Imperium to compete with the super-powerful burger joint Tzeentch In A Box (because they somehow get an Inquisitor indebted to them or something. Contrived, I'm sure, but whatever).Despite the fact that I've never played anything even remotely set in the 40k universe, he wants me to play as the CEO of Tzeentch In A Box, secretly undermining the players' every action. A secret BBEG.While I certainly think I'm clever enough to handle this, and the entire premise is fucking hilarious, which is enough for me by itself...well, I mentioned that I've never touched 40k, right?So, what should I do to:1) Keep my cover2) Make my character in any way efficient as a chef/CEO/covert operative3) Screw over my teammates' business empire in as many clever, devious, and/or hilarious ways as possible?Extra credit will be given for answers that make me laugh uproariously.Pic is the only 40k-related image I have, because even the uninitiated know that the Emprah protects /tg/.
It occurs to me, too late, that 3 am on Independence Day was probably a bad time to start this thread.
Wait, so if you're secretly the Tzeentch CEO, who is your character posing as? Another chef?Also, we're going to need 40k fast food, stat. So far all I've got is the>multi-melted cheeseburgerand the outrageously spicy and filling>The Exterminatus Dog
First of all you'll want to game your Fellowship characteristic as high as possible.This helps with both lying and getting people to like you. It is the only stat you need to focus on. You should also consider decent Weapon Skill to represent your abilities with kitchen knives.High Fellowship is also useful for issuing commands and orders. Get a a sous-chef. No... get a hundred sous-chefs. Each loyal to you before all others. Get Air of Authority and all the leadership-focused talents you can. Tweak your character completely towards commanding others. Then have your army of sous-chefs do your bidding as you sit in the back juggling knives and making perfect soup. You'll be the most powerful member of the party and the WS and FS stats will look completely in character and hilarious to your party. They'll never suspect it until it's far too late.Picture semi-related. It is a cheese falcon. An appetizer served to out of touch nobles and aristocrats amused by the inferior xenos races they have never been forced to meet.
Make sure your teammate's food is true fast food - that is, it has more cholesterol than is right or healthy.Suggest having the delivery trucks run off of the fryer oil in order to increase profits, spreading delicious smelling exhaust fumes throughout the city. Just smelling it makes them think about your teammate's restaurant. Olfactory subliminal advertising. More people eating more meals in the restaurants, coupled with the fact they are being served rendered cholesterol, will cause the consumer base to die off relatively quickly. If you get lucky, it will cause enough ghost towns to bring down an overzealous inquisitor on their heads.Because that's what Tzeentch is about, subtle dickery
>>19731984Be a Cleric. Take Trade (Cook).Since you're a villain, take Missing Digit. The best villains are missing a finger on their left hand. It's just sinister as all getout. Don't ask questions.
As the CEO of Tzeentch in a Box are you, yourself, a chaos worshipper or is it just a really ironically heretical name and you're actually a loyal Imperial citizen with really awful taste and an Inquisitor who owed them a favour so got the name cleared (aka GM fiat)This is important so we know whether to suggest chaos tricks in the food or marketing tricks in the 41st millennium or both.
>>19731984Source cheap meat for your 'team-mates' from an overpopulated Hive World.I shouldn't need to tell you the tweeeest.
>>19732041I run a corporation that has Tzeentch in the name, but I don't know if I'm supposed to be a follower of Tzeentch.I'm willing to entertain this notion if it makes things more hilarious.Anyway, I'm supposed to be the CEO of the Tzeentch In A Box fast food corp, following around this upstart group while posing as a member, in order to destroy the competition...presumably because I just have THAT great of a monopoly that these are the only chefs in the entire Imperium that challenge my supremacy.>>19732053So, all I need to do is make sure they're as greasy as possible? This sounds like it could backfire. McDonalds is greasy, and it's EVERYWHERE.
>>19731984Suggest that they capture a brand new market by selling to the Tyranids.When the entire planet gets nom'd, protest that you weren't to know that would happen.
>This just in: Tzeentch-in-a-Box stocks are at an all time high as competitors try to downplay recent accusations of allowing low quality grot dog meat containing live ork spores to be shipped to over forty separate Imperial worlds. A spokesperson could not be reached for comment.
>>19732113If he could actually get the 'nids to pay him for worlds as food, he'd be ridiculously rich.Like, he could just buy out the Gods of Chaos rich.
>>19732121whycan'ti,holdallthisbiomass.jpgNew nefarious scheme: invent the Nurgleburger. Claim to have no idea why so many customers have been getting sick.

>>19732143>>19732153>>19732140>>19732041This thread is already /tg/ gold.
>>19732094Get one of your sous-chefs to start a rumour that the franchise binds daemons of Slaanesh to their burgers to make them more desireable.Then get a second sous-chef to go actually bind some daemons to the food being sent to, say, a high profile catered event.Then get a third sous-chef to go to a fourth sous-chef's hab-block, paint chaos markings over all the walls and leave banned literature on the table.Then kill the fourth sous-chef yourself, present his head to your teammates and claim full responsibility for allowing such a vile heretic to infiltrate your cherished organization. Vow to be more stringent in your hiring process in the future and immediately institute a wide variety of draconian new hiring rules that appear to restrict your sous-chefs but actually serve to prevent anyone else from hiring their own.
>>19732178That's devious, but I don't want to decapitate the organization in one stroke. It'll be more (Dorf Fortress-style) Fun if I just slowly sabotage everything they do.But aside from just automatically moving in on any market they target, how do I most effectively screw them over without seeming to actually know what they're doing?I've got to make my own actions seem like those of an inscrutable, mysterious other.
>>19732143"Yo, Augustus? Bro? You gonna finish that? Cos-"BLAM.
>>19732161Oh god. This is awkward but... no they don't.They gain a bit of genetic memory from eating any flesh. Stuff like flashes of good areas to eat, smells of dangerous predators, stuff like that. Eating the brain is for getting specific thoughts and memories. Seriously go look it up again and laugh at the consequences. This is the explicit reason why so many chapters have flesh eating or blood drinking rituals. They gain bits of each others' memories and bond as a chapter. It's one of the more ridiculous parts of space marine fluff when you think about it for too long.>omshom theIndeed captcha. Indeed.
>Tzeentch in a Box>Offering NurgleburgerTzeentch and Nurgle don't play well, just as Khorne and Slaanesh don't play well.
>>19732210Duh! That's why the Nurgleburger is on the lunch menu, not the dinner menu.What do you think we are, a pizzeria?
>Pulled ork sandwiches! Now with tomato! On sale for a limited time only so get yours today before they're exterminated!
>>19732199A more prosaic way to hit them would be to hire pirates (Rogue Traders, Dark Eldar, etc.) to hit their supply lines. You might manage to then offer to sell meat to the company from your 'connections', gouging them for a reasonable profit. If you play your cards right, you can come across as the hero while eating away the company from the inside.Speaking of connections, take every opportunity to get your people in the mix. If your Fellowship is good, they'll expect you to handle negotiations, and you can work that into hiring. Make sure to sabotage everything any other person takes high responsibility for, but only if you can pin the blame on them. Any infighting they do is less work for you.

>>19732369*Note, I do know that Tzeentch-In-A-Box is the competitor that only OP is secretly working for, but since we don't have a name for OP's group's restaurant, it's an excuse to say Tzeentch-In-A-Box more.
>>19732364>Your sole ally against this fearsome foe is the mayonnaise dip included with every orderHa! "Going to war against your food" should ABSOLUTELY be the main thrust of your marketing campaign OP.
>>19732394OP here:I figure if my DM is willing to manufacture a company called Tzeentch In A Box (this was *his* idea), that dishes as a series of puns on Chaos Gods is exactly what he's looking for.From what I hear, his experience with DH has been with a DM that actively sought to fuck the party over at every single available opportunity, so I expect this whole ordeal to be COVERED IN DEATH.Which, as I'm led to believe by /tg/'s summaries, is more or less the standard Dark Heresy scenario.

>>19732488I feel proud that I was the first to see that thread (and bump it)
So, much as I love the awesome shit /tg/ is coming up with as backstory for Tzeentch In A Box, can anybody help me in devising a character that can work in this scenario?I honestly don't have any idea how to make a DH character, and most of my teammates started on DH and migrated to D&D. I'm going to opposite route. I take from the old Grendel threads and extrapolating that DH likes lower rolls better than D&D's high rolls? I mean, I've been devouring the Lexicanum Wiki for hours, but there's so little crunch in there that I'm semi-versed in the Lore, but I still have exactly no idea what I'm doing for character creation.
>>19732067>The best villains are missing a finger on their left hand.WRONG!The best villains have an EXTRA finger on their RIGHT hand!
>>19732651Fellowship. Get the highest Fellowship you legally can. Then take proficiencies in social skills for additional bonuses. Then take talents for yelling at people and telling them what to do. Fellowship is the only stat a character like yours will need to ever care about.The central mechanic in this series of games is a d100 roll. You want to roll under your stat and various skills, talents and items give you temporary bonuses to your stat for certain rolls. You can get a shockingly high fellowship if it's the only thing you do with your character. And it should, rules-wise, be the the only focus of him. Let your party do other stuff. Being the Fellowship guy means, as anon pointed out earlier, that your party will try to get you to do negotiations and stuff, which you secretly want of course but should pretend to do reluctantly.And Weapon Skill as your secondary "stat you actually care about" is fun for the sake of threatening enemies with kitchen utensils and actually being intimidating while doing so.
>>19732724The Six Fingered Man, who else?!
>>19732774So, I should still be shooting for a high number on stats, despite low rolls being the goal, right?Super-high Fellowship rolls, high bladed weapons rolls. Is there anything else I should focus on?
You are now worried about High-Fructose Khorne Syrup.
>>19732818Nah that's what your party is for. Let someone else be a skilled sniper or whatever.YOU are a skilled negotiator, able to be friendly and bombastic or shrewd and silver tongued as necessary. YOU haggle with marketing companies. YOU hire new workers and sous-chefs to assist the restaurant. YOU train new employees in how to cut the vegetables properly.Get Leadership focused talents. Tweak the whole character around Fellowship and don't worry. Your party will pick up the slack.And just in case, when they finally discover you near the end of the campaign, you have your knife fighting skill to ward them off as you escape. You don't need anything else.
