As Humble Bundle just released a bunch of Warhammer 40000: Dark Heresy rule books, I was just wondering about the issue of putting different characters in this game to one party.
It has a great setting (Warhammer 40k is a brutal,dark sci-fi/fantasy setting based on major troop-battles with one of the funniest representation of orks in roleplaying history), but…
If you start with “a guardsman, a tech-priest, a psyker and an outlaw are going to…”, it sounds as absurdly, as if you say “four popes are walking in the dungeons” in our world - there simply shouldn’t be a situation like this in a setting (or at least, very rarely). WH40k lore mostly focuses on major battles of troops - not to single or small group of diverse characters, so it also doesn’t help to form a team from a bunch of characters with different backgrounds.
Have any of you, who played/run with this game, found a reasonable “lore-friendly” solution to this or have you just ignored this issue?
