  • Viewing the descriptions above, Kegiz Gavem would be the Mecca of the Dwarves, the equivalent of Avras to Humans. Difference being that Dwarves are much less religious in average than Humans in average. Compared to RL Mecca and pilgrimages granted to Shia and Sunnitea alike, the pilgrimage would be granted in KG to regular and infernal Dwarves alike, with occasional restrictions in time of wars. A strong difference is that there woud be few pilgrims from abroad, in any case.

    Quote from JimMorr: “If 'no changes' was a value we would be still playing 1st edition of WFB. ” For those who didn't like changing too often, we maintained 1.3. Close to a year and half by now - and this includes BRB and all AB.

  • Quote from fabambina: “Also, the fact that 1.1 has little community support and no future updates coming is a hindrance. No re-balancing of some armies that need it (but which ones?) ” 1.0 was released in April 2016, 1.1 was released in September 2016, 1.2 was released in October 2016, 1.3 was released in December 2016 (and is still the official rule, but not for long anymore). There was no time to determine where was the balance in 1.1 and which armies were off-balance. No matter, 1.1 had addre…

  • Quote from Squirrelloid: “Historical turkish and mongol horse archers preferred to fire behind themselves while fleeing. Part of the harass and provoke / feigned flight tactics. Native American horse archers managed to fire to their bow side without difficulty. ” I have no problem with shooting light cavalry doing feigned flight. I would applaud a specific "flee and shoot" reaction. But... Where did you see that any of your examples were even remotely accurate, unless at point blank range? Were …

  • Superb post by @Karak Norn Clansman. @Ghiznuk, before we ventured too far, let's not forget it is an Aux book for DH, and on the map, Kegiz Gavem is shown as a DH city. Technology: Fine with Gavemites doing some reverse engineering on ID technology, and creating in the process the most advanced Taphrian tech. So full access to powder including cannons, and probably some access to steam. Magic/Runes: Making them Dwarves of Light, with most likely an associated access for clerics to Thaumaturgy, i…

    Quote from DarkSky: “@Calisson What's your point? Do you want to remove fast Cavalry from all armies core? Do you want all riding shooters to decrease their aim? It's not clear what you are proposing and it certainly does not touch the subject I brought up. ” Two points indeed: 1. Fast cavalry is reasonable in most armies core. Shooting cavarly is much less reasonable. 2. Cavalry shooting fast and accurately at medium/long range is not realistic, anywhere. 1+2 means that accurate shooting fast c…

  • Quote from Lionhammer: “Quote from Calisson: “It would not make sense to go for the unsupported 1.1, when 2.0 will be supported in the years to come. ” That one version is the most recent doesn't mean it's better than the old one. We have our right to choose which version we play since we're not bound to a company who demand us to play the new one. ” No dispute here, it is fully your right! In my post, I observed only the practicality, which you did not consider in your reply. For someone alread…

  • Quote from DarkSky: “Base Entry: Dread Outriders Optional Upgrade: Cardaron's Hunters For X pts/model Gain Cult of Cardaron and RXB. ” I takes indeed a good horsemanship to gallop in agile maneuvers while holding a light lance. It is even more challenging to do that while holding a shield with the free arm. Group maneuvering necessitates specific training for infantry. It is harder for cavalry. And of course harder at high speed. Luckily, we're only considering simultaneous coordinated maneuvers…

  • If you start T9A without experience in WH8th, then the learning curve for 1.1 and 2.0 will be quite similar. Both 1.1 and 2.0 are optimized for masses of infantry, requiring finess maneuvering to get a win. It would not make sense to go for the unsupported 1.1, when 2.0 will be supported in the years to come.

  • Hi, Dwarves fans! A group of forum members has started a series of Homebrew AB based on various African cultures. Kegiz Gavem is a prominent place in Taphria. During the Second Age, all Dwarves were united. Those in Taphria live in mountains like the ones in Vetia, but may have diverged significantly. We think them to live outside, not in caves. We locate in vicinity some permanent foes: Orc & Goblin tribes in the Mountains of the Moon, also Daemons of the Rift. ID are not far either and compete…

  • Hi, ogres fans. I would like to let you know that a group of forum members interested in African cultures are designing a series of Homebrew AB. One of them is conceived as Auxiliary Book for OK. However, we don't describe a local population of ogres, but rather a population of apes having reached a superior sapience. Lack of shooting weapons is compensated by wrestling techniques. At the moment, we are brainstorming, soon we should provide a first draft. Your help would be greatly welcome: you …

  • Wow, that was a quick start! -=-=- Kegiz Dwarves are a brilliant civilization, brilliant enough to be on Vetian's maps. RL Ethiopia serves as model. High Mountains, lots of water, very chaotic landscape which allows fertile agriculture but difficult transport. Note, the Ethiopian drought which inspired the famous song We are the World was not happening in the whole country but in the relatively dry lowlands, while the highlands were green as usual. Source of coffee and frankincense indeed. Sourc…

    Thanks for your contribution. It looks kind of Koghi. -=-=- Quote from Karak Norn Clansman: “What's not to like? ” Not IP-free. It can serve to artists as inspiration, as you said. But not for direct use in our Homebrew AB.

    Quote from Ghiznuk: “we make Kong a kind of immortal who gets constantly reborn even if killed in combat, much like the Wyscan King and Queen. ” There is a small difference: Kings and Queens are promoted instantaneously to their status. Changing a silverback to King Kong might take more than a minute. Shamans having a connection to memory of ages, why not? Just don't use Emerald Dream in the AB, that's WoW's IP. I would like them not to have religion (not even the notion of sins), in order to fo…

    Dislike. Problem with immortals is that you can't kill them. Seriously, it causes a problem of coherence. The longer a species lives, the less frequent it has to give birth, otherwise it would soon overwhelm the world. A quasi-immortal species may reproduce itself only extremely rarely. Especially a gigantic one, as the environment can sustain only a couple at a time. If King Kong is rare, and he dies in battle, then we must find a way to grow a new one in time for the next battle... The solutio…
