  • Statline Design change

    Cyprinus - - Suggestions

    Post

    Quote from Baldin: “Your haste with looking something up does not change the way the layout looks though Besides you can't use that argument to much imo since magic items and magic also provide modifier. ” Layout is more than looks only.

    Quote from Giladis: “Quote from Cyprinus: “In the GW armybooks we had a page with background information on all units and explanation of the unit specific special rules. ” This was intentionally removed so we would not have to update the background sections every time there is a rule change and so the background can stand independent of any rules. Previously it was a serious drain on resources to keep updating things. Not to mention it prevents printing out just the background section in hardcov…

    Not if you quickly want to look up defense of a specific Orc. Need to check and make sure they don’t get +1 offense or -2 defense...

  • Statline Design change

    Cyprinus - - Suggestions

    Post

    There is one aspect/advantage that the Blocks Layout provides and which is lost when using Linear Layout: a quick way to see if a unit has any special defenses and/or attacks. I know this is not a problem for those that played the gane several times, but new players may find it useful. You now check your profile, see some rules in the Offensive section and you know that your attacks may do something interesting. Same for Defensive special rules... it’s less likely for new players to forget they …

  • Statline Design change

    Post

    Perhaps because I am used to it, like many others... but I favour the linear presentation presented here. It feels less cluttered and more organised compared the current layout. As for opposing stats below one another (as is the case now, but not there for linear), it has been mentioned before: you compare to your opponents stats and not your own. So it matters little where they are placed, as long as they are easy to locate.

  • Quote from Grouchy Badger: “Quote from Eldan: “Tapatalk is that stupid app that they are trying to pawn off to you on this forum. I've stopped browsing Ninth Age on my phone, because that damn app takes up half the screen and I can't get it to stay closed. And when you use it, it adds "I've written this using Tapatalk" to every post you make in your language. And what phone you use, which seems like a data security nightmare. That seems to be... Dutch? ” You can never trust the Dutch and their w…

  • Quote from My_Kin: “In regards to aesthetics I understand you're not a miniatures company, but I do think you could do more to encourage the idea that this is a miniature wargame, and definitely stop this awful practice that seems to be rapidly growing (especially in the tournament scene) of people using flat cut outs rather than actual terrain. It's a terrible advert for the game. Maybe feature more scratch built terrain tutorials like GW used to in the old days. ” I believe they are gathering …

  • Printers should be good enough. Not sure it is cheaper to get the printer and materials than it is to buy the models. Also, you need to find files to print models from or create your own... not sure the first is always free and if the latter is easy. It would be cool for designing your own models and unit fillers though! Perhaps look into 3D printer shops (they must exsist I think) so you do not have to buy a printer.

    Background writers and those that write Fluff pieces may not be the same deal? I do not know though, but it may be worth checking (again) if they could use someone to write similar to what you wrote above to fill the future books with ‘random’ Fluff

    Quote from Pellegrim: “Battle Brother (WFB format) had cool rules about rallying, inspiring presence, magic, categories etc. 9th Age should make a cool set too! Can be much fun to make. ” perhaps his one is also adopted from the rules GW published. I have not read these...

  • 2V2 RULES

    Cyprinus - - General Discussion

    Post

    There are also rules for 2v2 in WHFB (not sure what book exactly, been a while), using rules for allies (based on good - neutral - evil) and how they were sharing power dice, one grand general (to inspire), BSB rules, heroes to join allied units and whether fleeingn allies are causing panic or not. Seems this should be easy to convert for T9A, except we need to ‘create’ how the factions are related (friendly, neutral, hostile) to determine alliance. Or go with the one that seems most fun to play…

  • Quote from piteglio: “ehehehe, yes, man, we should definitely gang up and hang out. as soon as my Real Life gets a bit less messy, i promise i'll come and find you. for the moment being, picture that - am still in the office, trying to finish a book i started writing months ago. damned be deadlines! about smoking - and that's because you don't know what was in that glass! ; ) more seriously, on this point: sometimes i think that bad behaviour such as smoking shouldn't be portrayed in videos for …

  • Quote from Kovlovsky: “I like the Electoral Cavalry name. It makes them sound like being part of the standing army of the Count Electors. It reminds me of the Ordonnance army of Charles the Bold who, as th duke of Burgundy was the vassal of the King of France, but was independent in all intent of purpose. Nothing stops them from being nobles. French and Burgundian Gendarmes were massively aristocratic. They simply belonged to permanent companies instead of being a noble militia. If you want an I…

  • Quote from Konrad von Richtmark: “You are being inconsistent. You say that half the core requirement can be filled by one unit of KO, but you can't if KO are special-only-and-never-core as you advocate. ” Not sure if you are just being difficult here... It was quite obvious the example was under the assumption that KO became core choices. You’d be able to field an all elite (choice) army that way. As for the other arguments. I feel this is going in circles. You’d like the KC to move KO into core…

  • Less practical, but more real to the miniature situation: Use one of these fancy interactive tables! Or - the cheaper option - project towards a table by having a projector hanging from the ceiling! I have seen this done for maps in some D&D games. People would place mini’s ontop of the projection (or is it under the projection!) Home Made: manysideddice.com/2015/08/01/o…uilt-projected-table-top/

  • Even though my examples are not a reason to prevent the KC or bring KO to core, it does open up the door for others to argue for such changes. Why would my Priest General not bring Flaggelant worshippers as his main force? As for a KC general needing ‘irrelevant infantry’ is not true. Not all armies with a KC general aim for a full Cavalry army. You could easily spend half the core requirements on a unit of KO. Add a few light troops and core is filled. Next we add 2x IG units in special to make…

  • I am not in favour of having a Character move units from Special to Core. I do not see the need. Next thing we get is a Great Weapn Marshall moving Imperial guard to core. Witch Hunter moves Reiters to core. Priest moves Flaggelants to core... and that’s just in our army book! If you want to go with a KC as general in EoS, you have to deal with the weaker core knights instead of replacing them with elite choices (and there by create an all specialist army - assuming KO goes into special). Not ev…

  • May also not work with some spells that modify the Armour Value from armours and Shields but not from Innate Armour. Same for Shields that work against shooting but not against melee attacks when troops carry two handed weapons for instance. If we merge everything in a single Armour Value, we do not know what portion thereof is from Armour, Shields and Innate.

    Quote from kisanis: “@Cyprinus I think we're missing a page from the batrep - We don't have the army list/description for the VC army, only the EoS one! Anyway to make a 1.1 version of this doc?

It reads awkwardly because there's very clearly two entirely separate vocabularies from the two different authors…

    I can see the use for seperate articles. Just collect the pages from the Scroll that form one chapter and create a new pdf [note 1]. Upload that on Social Media with some intro text on what is being discussed and where to find more articles like it. Or show the first (two) page(s) and if people get interested in the content they can read all about it in the scroll. Maybe do one Chapter per week (instead of a repost of the entire Scroll) to keep exposure going and start discussion on specific con…
