    Thought about that, but that was not really necessary, given that the distributions were similar enough at first glance. I would have done it if someone had provided too unbalanced results, but everyone played it very fairly.

    Just thought about a small detail: Corsairs should be rather labeled as pirates.

    Seven ASAW appreciations (including mine). Here are the results, sorted by average: (Hidden Content)(Hidden Content)(Hidden Content) Comments: Our average vision concentrates on cavalry as the bulk of the army, helped with monstrous things (assuming Cattle and M.Cavalry such as camels) and infantry. Consistent with living in open savannah. Guerilla is not consistent with fighting in open savannah, my understanding is that we desire the army to be sufficiently mobile to make wide circles around o…

  • Quote from Calisson: “Very interesting debate. Unless someone does it before me, I intend to quote many posts in the general forum for the enlightenment of the community. ” done: Designer's commentary about DE, explaining Background's general perspectives

  • There is a thread related to DE, A Designer's commentary on the 2.0 adjustment phase as a stepping stone towards the full 2.0 DE book rework which has some very interesting insight about how armies are designed, and shown on full army books. This insight is interesting for all factions. I took some quotes from the referred thread, and kept only as little as possible, trying to keep it interesting for the non-DE players, in particular HE but not only. Please discuss! Quote from ArchangelusM: “Des…

  • Sorry, but YOU are mixing two things. Im my quote, I mentioned "us". In your reply, you mention "individually". That is precisely the point. Admittedly, I do mix something, when I mention you, that is not you as an individual, but you as a representative of the BG team. I know that nobody takes personal offense, but let's clarify it once more: every individual in the BG team does a fantastic job, and I know that the whole team does what they believe is the best they think. What is debated here i…

  • Very interesting debate. Unless someone does it before me, I intend to quote many posts in the general forum for the enlightenment of the community. -=-=- @Giladis Quote from Giladis: “There is nothing stopping you from assigning what ever qualities you want to these elves. The Elf is what you want it to be. ” This is not true. And YOU are the very person stopping us from assigning what ever qualities we want to these elves, as you have done several times on this forum. What we want to discuss i…

  • @Giladis, thank you for this text, in particular this sentence which illustrates perfectly the problem between BGT stance and T9A players. Quote from Giladis: “the 9th Age humans are surrounded with creatures that are more or less alien to them ” This illustrates well what creates the anti-immersion problem we, players, have. We, who discuss in this DE sub-forum, lead DE armies in battles. We do not want to play a Human surrounded by alien Elves. We want to play an Elf, leading other Elves, surr…

  • Quote from Giladis: “@Calisson as you have seen in the recent scrolls we are introducing information originating from non human sources. ” I apologize, completely forgot about Scroll issue #6. I was mislead by your mention post #42 that "what is important is that all the material when coming from non human factions is interpreted through humans. ". Do you mean that post 42's quote is a thing of the past rather than a thing of the future?

  • Caveat: AvB hat off, DE Player helmet on. Quote from Giladis: “all the material when coming from non human factions is interpreted through humans. There is additional information coming from the non humans primarily used to establish the suroundings in which the narrator interacts with non humans. ” Having exclusively Humans as narrators is a problem. Those who debate in the current thread in the DE sub-forum prepare themselves, at the first person, to lead an Elf army on the battlefield. The in…

    1. Elephants in Taphria Quote from Scottish Knight: “The 9th Age is set in a fantasy world, which draws upon both real world inspiration and preceding fantasy themes. ” To stay true to T9A spirit, we must start with history/authentic legends, altered by existing popular model collections. Of course, we are perfectly allowed to expand or alter from that basis, whenever there is a good reason for that. Furthermore, players are encouraged to build their own universe from what T9A provides, and this…

  • Quote from ArchangelusM: “And the infamous cults ” Infamous for the implementation, in particular the constraints they introduce, but overall I did not see the background rejected as such. At least, Yema implementation has been appreciated by some for a long time. For my part, I am positively intrigued by Cadaron, and I find Olaron to make much better sense than Nabh, both in the background and in the implementation. The main regret is, like everyone, that Cults are imposed even when they make n…

    Quote from setrius: “As I wrote in a previous post I was working in army book which thematic is Al-Qassar 1001 Nights and Hakim desert nomads. Well, I finished it. I would like read your opinions. If you like it or not, it is easy to read or not. Anything it considers will be well regarded. Link army book: The Al-Qassar Kingdoms ” Great read! I love the 1001 Nights tonality. The inspiration from DE AB is appreciated. I have no comment on pts and balance. -=-=- Questions as I read: What is Thaper…

    Quote from Ghiznuk: “I don't see Vanhu riding elephants for example. ” Sub-Saharan populations never domesticated elephants in known history. In the North of Sahara, Hannibal's elephants were a specific breed, smaller and more docile, living only North of Sahara, and came extinct as Rome became an Empire. For Koghi, I believe we should drop rhinos and monsters, and leave them for Vanhu and other Taphrian factions. About the elephants: what is the sentiment? For Sylvan "King of the Jungle" inspir…

    Quote from Ghiznuk: “What makes you assume that in T9A universe, the civilized races were initially White ” Nothing, and certainly not T9A very background. The first T9A hegemonic civilization on the record being saurians, I know nobody who would call them "white". What makes you assume I assumed this, ever? Anyway, my understanding of the topic is to try to elaborate a setting based as much as possible on RL Africa, which would allow as many players as possible to adapt their collection or to c…

    Quote from Shlagrabak: “What about Forest Goblins? They are small imp-like creatures with beasts (3 Sizes of Spiders that could also count as other beasts for this application. Snakes? Not mentioning access to gnashers (what they look like in T9A is currently up to you imagination), giants, Great Green idol and trolls) and they have access to deceptive magic (Witchcraft). They also have no armor and a wild vibe. ” There could be Goblins roaming anywhere. What would be odd would be NOT to see a c…
