So I was learning how to DM deathwatch for a group of my friends, we where about to finish high school and go to university and I thought the holidays in between would give us a chance to play, the group had always been interested in trying a table top RPG and a few of us where big into 40k, picked deathwatch just because space marines might be an easier jumping on point.

Anyways, no sooner do I inform the group that I've not only been nice enough to make sheets and characters for them but I've also got the rules downpat the group suddenly informed me while I had spent two months figuring this shit out they'd all got boyfriends or girlfriends

Long story short:
Now I'm just writing shitty 40k fanfic using the character sheets and trying to figure out how the campaigns would have gone. Does anyone else do this?

I've certainly thought about it, but I've never gone far enough to actually put pen to paper.

How good's your writing, btw?

Well I like to think I'm okay but I'm still in training, actually in a scriptwriting course at Uni, the best feel when I can use DnD or Deathwatch stories as my "OC"

That's fucked up man, especially if you informed them in advance that you were gonna prepare all that stuff. What does having gfs/bfs got to do with playing tho?

I did something similar, I started reading into D&D during august to play with a friend of mine (we always do that kind of shit together first and then see if we like it enough to get more people). I didn't inform him until September when we met up again: turns out the crazy sonofabitch had spent about 200$ on D&D boardgames/starter sets, because he had no time to read and he thought we could start from there and gradually get into the pen&paper. Mind you, all this happened because before we split up for the summer he asked me in a drunken stupor if I wanted us to get into p&p and I answered "I don't know dude, we'll see"
I fucking love that guy (no homo)
