no fair. ninjas don't get conventions because they always turn into backstabbing competitions.
@Rogue Sun: bringing Chuck Norris into 40k just isn't fair for anyone. It would take all of the Chaos Gods, all of the C'tan (before the Outsider ate everyone), all of the Eldar Gods, and the Emperor with all 20 Primarchs to give Chuck Norris a challenge. And even then, who wants to watch a 20 second fight?
And in response to the space pirate ship:
The Ninja Star
Note: This type of vessel is extremely rare. Only one Ninja Star
may be in a game, per player.
* The shields on the Ninja Star
are very advanced, with almost instant regeneration capabilities. In game terms, this means that shields on ninja ships go back up immediately after they have been knocked down (e.g. A Space Pirate Ship escorting a Poor, Poor Mole Man carrier is attacked by the Ninja Star
. The Poor, Poor Mole Men shoot first, hoping to knock down the ninjas' shields, but only scores one hit. After all the rolls for the Poor, Poor Mole Men's shooting has finished, the shields on the Ninja Star
return to full strength, before the Space Pirates have an opportunity to attack).
** Ninjas are super speedy, and this carries over to their space craft. As such, the Ninja Star
has been fitted with thousands of special maneuvering thrusters, allowing it to dodge most enemy fire.
*** Turrets on the Ninja Star
are actually ninjas in special space suits that allow them to teleport next to enemy fighters/bombers/etc. and slice them into little tiny pieces. The Ninja Star
automatically shoots down all enemy ordinance that it comes into base contact with. Enemy vessels that come into base contact with the Ninja Star
with fewer structure points left than it are swarmed by ninjas, reduced to scrap metal in a matter of minutes. Remove the enemy ship from the game.
The Ninja Star
is capable of cloaking itself to avoid damage, and so is only able to be fired upon if the shooting vessel is within 10cm of it or the ninjas fired upon an enemy vessel within 20cm of the firer.
We Like our Privacy:
Anyone attempting to board the Ninja Star
is immediately stabbed in the back as they come aboard; the Ninja Star
cannot be boarded. Ever.
Victory needs no explanation; defeat allows none.
