    Fair enough. Just wanted to make sure you were aware, in case it develops further, or others are having the same issue.

    It's been recently, but since longer ago than yesterday. It's been around a month, I'd say. I left it at first, because I thought it was a problem on my end, but then I started to notice the pattern. (And it just happened trying to post this - and I discovered something else, smilies don't work either when it happens.) It's also now happened on three separate internet connections on three different devices, so either it's related to the Chinese internet, or it's something on the site.

    I have been experiencing a minor problem on the site, where the submit button doesn't work. I can refresh and it then works fine, so it not a huge inconvenience. However, when I do so, my typed post has not been saved as a draft. Also something I can easily work around, manually copying it. All in all, nothing major, and it may be something wrong with my Internet connection, but it only happens here, not on other sites, so I thought I'd make people aware incase it's indicative of something bigge…

  • I learned to thin paints when painting 40k Eldar gravtanks. I'm never going back. It allows me to get better result with cheap poster paint than I ever got with pro modelling paints.

  • This thread is not about how the rules reflect the fluff. It's about the background itself. You started your post saying that you were only going to talk about the fluff, and then proceeded not to talk about it at all, except to say that the rules don't reflect it. That's not what this feedback thread is for. The place for such feedback is in the rule discussion threads, not here. If you have feedback on the actual background: did you like the writing style, the characters, the story, the second…

  • Honey badgers are vicious AF. They are known to run underneath buffalo and kill them by castration. That's right, they run right into the incredibly dangerous area of threat around a buffalo's rear legs just to attack its gentials. They are known to tear beehives to pieces, and successfully face down lions. They are almost impossible to cage, as they will rip through wood and burrow underneath anything else. There is a famous one that has kept in a pen in SA, called Stoffel, and he used literall…

  • Feudal Japan in T9A

    Post

    Quote from Lawot: “ @Niedfaru @Giladis and @ anyone else who might make a decision about this someday: If T9A ever does do an official Japanese-inspired army, I beg and plead that it not be called Nippon. Nippon is an actual, if archaic, name for Japan. Like calling the Knights of Equitaine "Franks" or something. For one, it would be really cheap. For another, to do so would undermine all the work T9A does to be thoughtful about culture, ethnocentricity and imperialism. Calling an army Nippon wo…

    Aha, so there are. I couldn't find it, but it's linked from the News. And as far as I can tell, only from the News...

    The 1.0 full rulebook for the Sylvan Elves. The rules are out of date, but, while there may be expansions to the fluff, nothing therein is invalid.

  • It's time for Africa !

    Niedfaru - - New army books

    Post

    @Dopey I hope you are aware that the primary drivers of this homebrew project either live in, or have traveled extensively in, Africa. One is even married to an African woman, living in her own native country. I think they are in a very good position to know what does and does not constitute problematic material for the various cultures within Africa, more so than anyone sitting in another part of the world pontificating on the matter. That you insist on having two distinct cultures, when the of…

  • Here, the first major African nation: cruel slavers and dark sorcerers. Plus, what on earth made you jump there from the word salt? Sorry, I try to keep out of discussion on this part of the forum, to let you guys have maximum creative space but, some things cannot stand.

  • Nippon for T9A

    Right. It had to be aux for WDG. Not-Japan doesn't fit that unless you go full Throne of Blood on it, which isn't what people here have expressed much of a desire for. Also, Vikings was by far the aux list that was most requested for WDG. As I understand (though I'm not involved in anything regarding planning that high up), as each book is released, they'll get an aux list, and more will probably follow later. I see no reason to rule out a Japanese inspired aux list completely. There's room in t…

  • @Pellegrim Do you have a filter on your computer that prevents you from reading anything that stops you from complaining about the same untrue things endlessly? Quote from Scottish Knight: “The idea that we won't give internal perspectives is out of date and we are already working on this. Equally that we don't include non-human perspectives, it isn't true either, we have already done so and will continue to. ” Get some new material.

  • Now these are excellent replies. I can understand much more clearly what you are feeling. Thank you. Internal narratives to form a sense of purpose to each battle. This can definitely be presented, even without needing to resort to non-human primary sources. If this is the main complaint, I can see easy ways to address it, and I'm sure the rest of team will have great ideas too. As we are just embarking on the main meat of the next book, this is definitely a good time to address it.

  • pxog9.jpg Seriously people, if you're going to complain about stuff the background doesn't contain, at least pick things that it actually doesn't contain. Saying that secondary sources can't possibly provide things that it demonstrably already does contain despite being secondary sources is thoroughly daft. Non-human leaders: there are several of these in the BRB. Explanations of army composition: I'm not clear what you're asking for here, beyond what the books already provide, what do you want …

    Also, us in the team are watching. I try not to comment because I want to get the unadulterated opinion of the community, at least on things that haven't been released yet and thus have room to change. But we are watching, and we do see those good ideas that we can mesh with our plans. Please don't stop.

  • Quote from grungimusic: “I picked the article because it seemed to get away from the Anglocentric viewpoint (at least for some parts) It starts off by debunking the presumably Anglocentric view that English is difficult to learn for non native English sneakers, and presents this as objectively true. ” Sure, it does a decent job of presenting a good range of languages, but my point was that it does so almost exclusively by comparing each one to English. This makes sense, given that the audience i…

  • Hey, no worries. I'm always happy when someone is interested in learning this stuff and approaches it in a sensible manner. Just a note: that article is completely from an Anglocentric viewpoint. It acknowledges the fact, but glosses over it and doesn't discuss how difficult it may be for, say, a Chinese person to learn Swahili. The question needs to be considered from all angles before you can approach any objective measure of difficulty. I would come down on the side of "they're all equally ha…

  • Quote from The Gngr Noob: “I love the background One thing that jumped out is that the warriors of Vanadra could almost be seen as "Good guys". Punishing oathbreakers as vigilantes. Very interesting. ” Someone totally needs to make a Vanadra army made up of nothing but 200 Batman models.

  • Perhaps we can ask a friendly mod to split this discussion off to its own thread in off topic? _______________________________________ Questions like these are unanswered, because linguistics is primarily descriptive discipline. We aren't analysing (for the most part) what hypothetically could exist, only about what does exist. It's possible that language could work in all kinds of ways that it actually doesn't. But it doesn't. To my knowledge, the complexity of the language doesn't reflect the …
