    Some damn fine sculpting there! Wow...

  • Quote from There Is No Spoon: “Quote from Xeonic: “Fairly sure London is ridiculously expensive due to inflated wages and living expenses though. ” Was in Canary Warf on business last month (a more soulless enclave of twats have I never seen). Real estate is obviously still in a bubble, but the food didn't put a dent in my travel allowances at all even eating at decent restaurants. Norway on the other hand... ” Dang... "a soulless enclave of twats"? That's maybe the best and most verbose insult …

  • Lot's of great ideas here guys! I also want to say how very much I enjoy words like "skullduggery" being associated with a race of shifty, devious, underhanded rat people. Methinks these slimy rats would also readily engage in "chicanery", "shenanigans", and "asshattery" (I made up that last one).

  • I have even greater economic concerns for the discussions going on with regard to a boxed starter set. I'm not saying a starter set wouldn't be useful for getting new people to start playing 9th Age. But what would have to be charged for that to just break even? I fear that in the end you'd have to end up charging like $50 or more for a set that had a rulebook and cardboard cutouts and.....what if you add dice to it? Or army roster sheets? Or a campaign book? Or a BOX? You're going to see the un…

  • Quote from JimMorr: “I guess those are printing and delivery costs. Let's assume that in States shops will take such product from an unknown person and no press associations will come to crack your skull for publishing unauthorized magazine. Let's calculate on base of those assumptions. 1. Assumption that you will be able to put 3000 copies of completely new title about an unknown game is a bold one. But still, let's accept it. 2. Let's assume that average print and delivery cost is $4.5. Cost $…

  • Hello my fellow lore and story lovers! I have just begun a new immersive battle report/short story. I hope to work on it a little bit each week and hopefully will have it done in a timely matter. For now, I've got a bit of a prologue started involving the banter between two terrified dwarves piloting a steam copter through a god forsaken frozen pass. Enjoy...! The Battle of Frosthollow Pass, a new immersive battle report!

  • Hello all! So this has been way, way overdue! Back in July Steve (Mr. Owl) and I played another game with my dwarves, this time vs. his Empire army. We played on my snow terrain table which added a lot of fun and immersive visuals to the game. The snowy setting also gave us some great ideas as to exactly why the dwarves and the Empire would be in this god forsaken, frozen place so far from their homelands and safety. We tossed around some potential ideas, but then Steve came up with one that I k…

  • Quote from Pellegrim: “.ermmmmmm.... what happened here .... ” Not following you...what happened where?

  • Quote from Persedious: “@Baranovich Making a T9A is failing thread might make a person wrong, it doesn't mean their thread title should be changed to 'T9A: A Smashing Success' without their permission. What's next then. I make a thread saying I'm a little disappointed in the new DL book, and it gets changed? Or making a thread saying Seaguard are overcosted, but with a wave of the magic wand it gets changed to 'The Points Team have succeeded once again!!!' At least the new thread title reflect t…

  • Quote from Pellegrim: “Quote from piteglio: “Quote from Pellegrim: “Quote from piteglio: “but would you say that if the original poster doesn't provide a single answer in nine pages, gets poked twice about title change and still doesn't answer, we (as mods AND as community) have a right to rename? ” ...then rename it [...] like "factors that influence the future of the 9th Age" ” @Klaudel, here's a good point from Pelle on renaming. we might also want to consider the suggestion to moving to a no…

  • I say in honor of Sustainable Center we should name the doom sub-forum, "The Tipping Point" Forum. ...if I had a dollar for every time GW was supposedly at a tipping point and about to crash, I would be a millionaire. Or every time 9th Age "was about to fall". You get the idea!

  • Quote from Calisson: “Quote from Phaeoron: “Flak is lesser evil to censorship IMHO. We should take the high ground and try and deal with even malign whiners in a civil manner, which by and large we have done relatively well, some fallout can't be avoided. It's a much worse PR offense if we start promoting censorship of uncomfortable topics. Imagine what kind of stuff hostile platforms will get to publish in that case... ” Wondering, 1) how useful would be a "Doom Discussions" subforum under "Gen…

  • Quote from Col. Tartleton: “I imagine a swirling formation of rats boasting how brave they are and stepping forwards to be in the front but being relieved when someone outdoes them and pushes them aside and they can slide unnoticed to the back. When the lines are joined those trapped at the front of the company fight like cornered rats and are rather vicious fighters that inspire those in the ranks and take some sense of security from the press of bodies behind them. Does anyone actually want to…

  • ...So I've said my piece more than enough. I'm exiting Stage Right from this thread, I've had quite enough. I'll say it one last time. The Rat People are iconic enough to not need hyper-specific named lore. They can just be Rat People. This is a game created by fantasy fans for fantasy fans. As volunteers. Nobody is getting paid. This kind of story-writing takes a long time when it's only being done part time. The Ninth Scrolls are an amazing amount of work and achievement. Please appreciate mor…

  • Quote from Eldan: “That's why I absolutely recommend everyone read the Ninth Scroll. Even the back issues. There's sometimes dozens of pages of fluff in each one. ” You recommend that players read the Ninth Scrolls but then before that go into detail about how supposedly bad and inconsistent you think the fluff is??? Eldan, you seem to fighting a boxing match and you're playing as both boxers.

  • With respects, I have to disagree that it's difficult to envision the Vermin Swarm without GW's fluff. I mean it's a race of giant, mutant rats that have developed the ability to use weapons and armor and organize themselves into a military society. The concept of the orc or goblin in overwhelming numbers goes back to at least to the 19th Century in literature. So for me transferring that onto a rat-version of that same kind of overwhelming force seems pretty natural. As far as GW's fluff well i…

    On a lighter note...this classic from the early MTV era of the 80s for some reason always reminded me of a song that wood elves would sing after a victory on the battlefield! Technically not a fantasy song or from any fantasy soundtrack. It just sounds "efly" to me. youtube.com/watch?v=AjPau5QYtYs

    I seriously have about $250 set aside for starting a KOE army. I'm hoping to get a significant chunk of it from TMS. Keep us posted!

  • Quote from Squirrelloid: “I honestly don't understand the "where's the fluff" people. Bring your own! Borrow someone else's! (Not necessarily GW). Rules can be a receptacle for fluff. You could just as well build a LotR Rohirrim army using KoE rules, or a historical hundred years war army, or whatever. The freedom to choose your own fluff should be a fluff-player's dream come true. Now, that said, fluff is coming. There's already a decent amount, scattered though it is. There's more on the way. …

  • Rather than think of this game in terms of an infinite growth paradigm that is on a recessive downward curve, how about we just think about it in the moment and enjoy it for what it is? When someone says to me that "I think that ultimately this game is doomed", on one level I don't even know what that means. Doomed as in one morning we'll wake up and the game will have zero players playing it? Doomed as in it will become a legacy game that's only played by a small, niche community of tournament …
