  • Quote from KeyserSoze: “Or go even further. Everyone has to name a favourite army, gets rank according to the army. KoE players get ranked from peasant or squire to king, EoS players from militiaman to Emperor, SA players from skink to cuatl, etc ” On Druchii.net, I am ranked corsair.

    Off topic indeed. If I may clarify, thanks to my red tag super-powers, I do happen to read some hidden forum every now and then, which allowed me to say: Quote from Calisson: “I would be surprised not to see a large change in spell generation. ” But these changes are not completely stabilized yet, so even if I wished, I could not disclose them. As soon as the rules team stabilizes the new magic, expect a communication to enlighten the community. With what I have seen, I anticipate globally a big…

    Quote from Manxol: “The problem, at least as I see it, comes from spells being random generated. ” Lots of proposals have been made from the community to overhaul the magic phase. Most did not randomize spells. All proposals have been reviewed by the rules team for two reasons: - inspiration - indication of the direction desired by the community. I would be surprised not to see a large change in spell generation.

  • Quote from Teowulff: “ On the other hand, because it has no commercial branch, T9A has a serious challenge in the department of recruiting new players to the game. We are still for a large part dependent on disappointed Sigmar players. ” This is one of our greatest concern. V2.0 will benefit from a launch campaign which will hit some games clubs. QS is designed to get onboard new players. Tournaments will keep showing our game. Future developments could include RPG to help advertise for our rich…

  • @Artegis Your post above, despite inaccuracies, summerizes well the reasons why T9A must take an extra care for not giving arguments to GW (or any other company) about IP. Noted among inaccuracies: inspiration is not the same as copy. We do not copy. This said, if you are legitimate to make your own impression, so are we to have a diverging one. What remains is that those in charge of T9A make the decisions about how low a risk they are ready to sccept. Your feeling about V2 may be based on past…

    Quote from WhammeWhamme: “Vermin Swarm Dread Elves Infernal Dwarves Vampire Covenant Did I miss a "good-guy" faction ... ” Who ever said VS, DE, ID and VC are evil? Their foes. And this applies usually to most, but not all of these factions. No difference for SA, HE, DH, EoS, similarly viewed as "evil" by their own foes. Reversely, all factions view themselves are "good". And most see some "good" individuals in every other faction. There is no grand parties of "good" and "evil" in T9A. Oh, and e…

    @Drakkar: no time to counter your arguments point by point - and it would probably not be very useful anyway -, but on first reading, I saw lots of excessive judgement. You are entitled not to like the way the forum is moderated. You are entitled to express your dissatisfaction. But let me tell you frankly, you are not convincing, because of your excesses. Many people do like moderation the way it is done currently. I see no need to change it, and I feel safe to tell that I express a general fee…

    Quote from JimMorr: “We are (mostly) adults and males here ” No matter who the majority is, we want T9A to be women-friendly and teen-friendly. They are part of the target audience. Besides, crude language is no to the taste of all adult males. Hence the policy. Thank you the Mods for implementing it.

  • @Eternal Flitter I know that @Bugman is already in there, but you might be interested in the content of this thread, about how to spice up a game of T9A, and maybe by some of the authors, for HAT.

  • Making anything official T9A requires not only to have made the efforts for a great quality product, but also it indicates a commitment to maintain it in the long term future. That "maintenance" includes: - stabilization of the rule, clear distinction between what is official and what is considered/brainstormed - easy and permanent availability for download of a pdf including all rules; clear indication about which rules are up to date - FAQ updated when needed - possible discussion in the forum…

  • Quote from Petterwass: “1. in the last couple of months has this been improved with the various brainstorming threads 2. though the normal response to any critique still seems to be some variation of "Go back to 8th if you don't like what we're doing, peasant!" 3. Things have improved somewhat 4. but there's still a long way to go when it comes to attitude. ” 1, 3. Thank you for noticing! It was not obvious to convince everyone in there, glad to see that the efforts succeeded. 2, 4. "Normal" may…

  • Quote from Col. Tartleton: “Fantasy baseball is the way forward. ” Doubtful. Little known outside of USA. Boring. But most importantly, no models for that. If I had to make a choice, I would rather go for hokey. Players wear armor and poles. It could facilitate conversions from normal models. (Hidden Content) Or maybe... either polo or better, its ancestor Buzkashi, which could recycle mounted models. With poles instead of spears. Oh, and full armor & barding models could have a use, too. (Hidde…

  • Nobody reached out to GW. At the moment, we're struggling with two games, T9A:FB, with a V2.0 in the works, and T9A:QS, just released. There are vague intentions discussed internally to use the same background for a zillion other games (a 10mm game and a team sport games have been mentioned indeed), but there is no workforce to do much more than current. IMO a RPG should have higher priority, to force us to develop our background. Being realistic, we'll be lucky if there are more than 5 differen…

  • Buildings Design of this proposal: Buildings can be garrisoned. Unit inside may shoot or cast spells with up to 5 models. Unit inside is nearly immune to melee, magic and shooting, which targets the building instead. Building has T9W9, when destroyed it is replaced by a ruin, and the unit inside suffers lots of damage. Line of Sight: Buildings are Obscuring Terrain. Cover: Buildings are Hard Terrain. Movement: Buildings are Impassable Terrain, except for the unit occupying it. Buildings may be c…

    Quote from Altao: “I know that this can be a bit off-topic, but is it know which 4 books will be reworked in next cycle/round? ” First four are still DL and WDG, followed by DE and ID. Following ones have not been considered internally, not even discussed.

    Quote from Cortrillion: “So? Any official response? Is it on for the 30th? ” Quote from Dashboard, 4th rotating panel,: “Rules freeze till August 2017! Quick Starter Released 16 April. ” That is as official as you can wish. Moreover, it is usually updated quickly when there is something new to say (shame on me if it is not updated within one or two days ). -=-=- <Advisory Board member + PR hats on> 4 army books, DL, WDG, DE and ID, had been anticipated for spring 2017, at a time when we thought …
