Hello Rogue Traders,
Sam Stewart here, and this week I’m pleased to bring you a tool that promises to be a great help to Rogue Trader Game Masters.
As the first book-sized supplement for Rogue Trader , we always wanted Lure of the Expanse to go above and beyond what people would expect from an adventure. One way was to present detailed locations such as Footfall and the Heathen Stars, so people wanting to run their own adventures could find the book useful. Another design concept we pursued was the Achievement Point Tracker.
The Achievement Point Tracker is designed so that the entire adventure of Lure of the Expanse works as a single massive Endeavor. The adventure itself is broken up into sections, and the end of each section has a list covering potential accomplishments and setbacks the Explorers could encounter. Each accomplishment has an Achievement Point award associated with it, and each setback has a penalty. The Achievement Point Tracker has a place where you can record the Achievement Points received and chart them onto a graph. When the adventure ends, the players and GM will have a tangible record of their successes and failures.
However, there is no reason the Achievement Point Tracker cannot be used for other adventures as well. Now, you can download a blank Achievement Point Tracker (pdf, 3 MB) from the Rogue Trader support page . The Tracker is a PDF with text forms that allow it to be filled out on a computer, or you can print it out and fill it out by hand during each session.
Until next time, success to all your endeavors!
