Dark Heresy (WH40K RPG) - Player(s) Needed

I'm looking for 1-2 more players for an upcoming Dark Heresy campaign. The current group has an experienced GM (me), and a couple of solid RPG'ers who are familiar with the rule set.

Ideal candidates are gamers who can commit to rolling dice once per week (we're thinking about Monday night) from about 7p-11p. By commit, I mean be able to show up 80-90% of the time, as everyone has outside commitments or things that come up, etc.

A working knowledge of the 40k universe is helpful, but anyone with a love of gritty sci fi can get a hang of it pretty quickly via reading the fluff in the rulebooks, or grabbing a 40k novel from B&N.

The group is pretty laid back, but we do like to make progress when we game. A little disruption here and there is perfectly cool, but a table clown isn't what we're looking for right now.

Our games are typically a 50/50 balance of RP and blowing stuff up - Dark Heresy features a bit of investigation and problem solving as part of the RP. "House rules" are typically kept to a minimum, but I am always super flexible if you've got a compelling reason to change something. As a GM, I really encourage everyone to build and manage a character with some substance - a purpose and motive beyond kicking in doors and stabbing bad guys in the face.

The current group has been gaming together for a long time (8 years with the newest member), and rotate through other RPGs like D&D/Pathfinder, and are looking forward to the new FFG Star Wars (we played some beta). We also play Warhammer and Warmachine on "off" nights where a couple players miss or whatever - so if you're into those games, bring your doods. We also do some "ad hoc" stuff with larger groups of friends that can't make a weekly routine, which you would be invited to as well.

So, in light of that, we'd want to meet before kicking off the campaign, just to ensure everyone will mesh well.

I expect this DH campaign to run for a few months, and if everyone gets along, I'd hope you hang around for future gaming (though you don't have to!). I host everything at my place in Levittown, which is located a few minutes from 95, Rte 1, and the Turnpike.

We're looking to kickoff the new campaign in mid June, but would want to get together ahead of that to meet.

    Yeah well, technically I'm on the RSVP list, but since I never got confirmation, I didn't show up. If it's still on next week and I was supposed to be there this week, please let me know.

    So what has happened here? The people who actually RSVP'ed, are we in? I see that it's full with 6 people, and my name is on the list, but I haven't heard anything back from the GM, so I was wondering

    Only just got into Warhammer 40k a few months ago. Already read all the Horus Heresy books, Inquisitor stuff, and working on Ultramarines. An RPG would be cool to try out. I've played D&D, White Wolf, and Pathfinder for years, but never Warhammer

    Have not played that game yet, but have played many others. I live in Frankford near Bridge st terminal so I am not that far from you.

    I haven't played DH yet, but have read several of the Warhammer novels(Horus Heresy and 40K both. Currently finishing "Battle of the Fang"). I have all of the Deathwatch RPG books, but haven't played it yet. Looking forward to this as an intro to the system. I am by the Neshaminy Mall so getting to you should be easy.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
