Can we assimilate pie? It would make being a drone so much more comfortable...

Hail Ramchop and Razmus. good work. I have been unable to get in games with my cube so well done.

As we prepare for BB2020, I am not sure how to move forward. Skill choices are changing as are how teams skill up. Also, Pact has a passer. How should this be incorporated?

Anyway, the Borg will have to change with the times.

If a player of yours improves and rolls normal, simply pick the first skill from the top of the list that he/she can learn. Example: A Dark Elf Renegade and a Marauder would both learn Block on a normal first skill roll. Second normal skill would be Dodge for the Renegade and Thick Skull for the Marauder.

If your player rolls a double, he/she has to take the first skill from the top of the list that he/she can only learn on doubles. Example: Your previously mentioned Dark Elf would have to learn Thick Skull, while your Marauder had to choose Dodge.

If there's no such skill on the list, treat the roll like a normal roll.

If your player rolls a stat increase, it has to be taken as by the rules (i.e. AV before MA).


I don't think much needs changing. I'd prohibit random skills to avoid taking skills yet to be assimilated. Other than that let the Hive Mind decide what they'd like to save up for (e.g. stats, doubles) and from there priority picks as listed above.

Thrower. I think there are two ways of approaching this: Make any "Thrower" assimilated as a "Renegade Human Thrower".
or
Allow the Hive Mind to decide whether the "Thrower" is assimilated as "Renegade Human Thrower" or the appropriate Renegade Race position

I love it Ramchop! I will update the hive as soon as I can. I missed the assimilation of the rat too.

The Hive Mind is now updated. Some nice changes due to the assimilation of that elf.

A newly constructed cube has arrived in a sector seemingly yet to be explored and has been named Competitive Invasion Cube 001 accordingly. The first encounter caused severe damage to two drones.
No assimilation, no new data.

Competitive Invasion Cube 002 has been kitted out and will leave shortly for their first encounter. Hoping to add to the Collective and gain the bodies to increase the Roster to 14...

So, are we clear to save for stats?

It has been a while since I thought about this.

I would say yes you may accumulate SPP for a stat roll. It feels like a valid option the hive would choose. Thus you would increase the quality of your drones.

Kill a Mino to get a Mino. Kill a ROgre to get a ROgre. Kill a troll of any kind to get a troll. Kill a human, imperial, or OWA thrower to get a thrower. Dead elves are always assimilated as elves no matter their position.
