    Quote from deadbuc: “That is why I was vague, why do we have to choose. Why cannot it be a monster of legends a because nobody that has seen it has lived, nobody knows hiw it actually looks. That way you can use almost any model to represent it. Im planning to use those FW or KoW werewolves ” T9A is officially model-agnostic; any official flavour text is still going to be a suggestion only. It also doesn't need to "choose" between werewolves and bat monsters and who knows what else; e.g. my sugg…

  • Quote from Manxol: “In T9A universe, society knows that gods exist, don't just believe in gods. Gods are a fact, they exist, and you have real proof of it. If in our world religion had the ruling word lots of times, and God is a matter of believe in real world, not a fact like in T9A setting, imagine the power that prophets, who directly speak to gods, have. Also, by the name of rules and equipment, I think ID are very religious. The most power I think overlords would have is being puppets of pr…

    Quote from Eldan: “Surely, the thing to look for the Varkolak would be the mythological Greek Vrykolakas, Slavic Vârkolak, Romanian Vârcolac? The legends are varied, as they usually are, and the term can apparently mean both a werewolf and a vampire. Or a werewolf who has died and become a vampire. Maybe you could take that one and say that a Varkolak is a nonhuman vampire? I think it shares an etymology with warg/varg, so it should probably be very bestial? ” These are all pretty viable options…

    Just a note: it helps if this gives people some ideas for what models to use. i.e. what IS a Varkolak (in your mind)?

  • Krokz speaks truth - these should tell people what things *are*.

  • Oh those, right. Yeah hold off on them until they drop.

  • Quote from Herminard: “Commendable idea @WhammeWhamme I assume this work will mainly take place after the community are in the know of what the design updates for the upcoming WDG contain? ” I'm not a design guy (sadly) nor a WDG guy so your comment fills me with blank non-comprehension! I thought WDG was out? There are more design changes coming? 0.0 crikey.

  • That would be the right general idea, yes.

    Quote from Squirrelloid: “Quote from WhammeWhamme: “On thing I'll note: Rules can change. Background can't change radically - but it can change enough to make units a bit different. Like, Ninth Scroll #6 has info on DE in it... but it's not zoomed down to unit level. I will admit that backstage we have more definition, but it's still not at the level of precision I'd like. Please do write what you'd like. I'll try to preserve community intent. FTR, since this thread was started sooner than most,…

  • Quote from Eldan: “I can do a second take on each one, if that would help? ” It would not hurt, but I don't want to overtax you.

  • Hey all! WhammeWhamme here. As you may be able to tell from my tag (no, seriously, "may" - about half the time it randomly switches between ACS and BGT smile.png ), I'm on the Background Team. I'm also kinda insane, because I've volunteered to take point on a dauntingly large job - crowdsourcing ideas for flavour text for units in the Ninth Age army books. Now, brutal honesty: I do not know if or where we will use this. I personally *hope* that we'll be able to insert them into army books direct…

  • Hey all! WhammeWhamme here. Y'all may remember me from when I was your ACS rep, before moving to the land of ash and fire... anyway, now I'm on the Background Team. I'm also kinda insane, because I've volunteered to take point on a dauntingly large job - crowdsourcing ideas for flavour text for units in the Ninth Age army books. Now, brutal honesty: I do not know if or where we will use this. I personally *hope* that we'll be able to insert them into army books directly as soon as the (massive) …

    It suffers for being unable to stack with Commandment (because different bloodline) and for Ghouls coming with their own source of accuracy. Oh, for Tullius' Teeth giving Parry. That makes the -1 OS part largely redundant (you can just take Teeth). As a pure-flying upgrade it's not worth it, but as essentially +1 OS/DS for their unit it's at least interesting. Maybe on an Independent Foot Count with a Court nearby... wow, that's way too conditional. It would be great in Lamia. In fact, if Lamia …

  • Eldan, that's great work. Kudos. If other people could aspire to that level of quality, but possibly presenting alternate takes on units (in case on of Eldan's doesn't work for Secret BGT Reasons TM) that would be awesome. Just dropping by to remind people that it was the Ninth Scroll #6 that had a little bit of VS fluff in it.

  • *sound of crickets* If anyone wants to read some official background before getting to work, the 8th Ninth Scroll has some Ogre Khans fluff. Read it today! Or tomorrow. Or not.

  • Ninth Scroll #5 has some official information on KoE. Ninth Scroll #7 has some on the other human nations and may also be worth perusing.

  • If people wish to check the officially released fluff, I direct you to the 7th Ninth Scroll.

  • In case people weren't aware, the ninth Ninth Scroll has some info on the official HBE background, so please feel free to check that specifically for inspiration.

  • The Ninth Scrolls relating to EoS are Scroll 5 (EoS in particular) and Scroll 7 (the other Human Nations, which help inform humanity in T9A in general). Please consult them if you wish to help with this!
