    I was wondering... Maybe we could consider DE in Taphria? It could help the team to be inspired for the imminent DE overhaul. Thoughts? Quote from Calisson: “(Hidden Content) ”

  • Quote from Eldan: “I've now realized that as a casual, I really don't have a place on this forum. I'll go delete my account in shame and go play Candy Land. ” Ah, Please use emoticon to indicate irony. That will help my heart to provide desired services for a couple more years. Thanks.

  • Great explanations, @piteglio! If the remaining hurdle is buying models and painting them, there are alternatives: Flat Paper Proxies

  • Hi. Please note that I rely on people telling me what to update on the first post of the thread. It is not automatically maintained. Thank you.

  • Quote from Helmut: “to get what they want by cunning or force of arms rather than trading. ” I did not say DE would get all their goods by honest trade. I only implied that once in possession of their goods, they would sell them by trade. The specifics of DE would be not to feel committed to follow other's rules. Compare to Vikings, for example. They were more traders than raiders. Still, Vikings! Compare to mafia. Most of what they do is to offer services (illegal), rather than assaulting banks…

  • Quote from umbranar: “Dread Elves don't negotiate. ” I would assess the opposite, based on my personal understanding of DE fluff. Dread Elves would negotiate anything... on their terms... nonwithstanding how legal the outcome would be. DE are the smugglers of T9A, they trade slaves, forbidden goods such as artefacts, persons traffic including prisoner's evasions, endengered species such as dragon eggs, highly taxed luxuries, drugs, kidnappings, prohibited goods and texts, you name it. DE do trad…

  • Well, the obvious inspiration for Gilles de Raux is Gilles de Rais. For those not versed in French history, he was a companion of Joan of Arc, the saint female virgin warrior, who freed the French Kingdom from the British occupation. Gilles became Marshal of France. Later in his life, he may have explored alchemy and demonology, and ended up to have sodomized, killed and eaten probably over a hundred of children. Very fitting for a vampire inspiration, blending the highest deeds with the worst e…

    Quote from Caledoriv: “To be honest, I have once "fought" for KoE, which is an official army. And alongside a great deal of other players. With 0 effect.We community here simply have no "power" to change anything. We'd have to make it to the executive board - and even then it'd be doubtful because as far as I know, the roadmap for the next few years has been agreed upon already. But if you know any executive board member or other "higher ups" here, by all means, try to pusuade them! ” Here I am …

    Now we're talking about an idea! Having a general/condottiere with only 6" bubble and a BSB/paymaster with no bubble at all (reroll only for own unit) would play well into the designed ASAW and make Grand Companies very unique with a strong "I fight for myself" spirit.

  • I can confirm. Last bit of work done on future DE AB was on March 2017. Since, DE has undergone instead the very same upgrade as any other AB, with the 2.0 preparation. You have the whole result downloadable.

  • Quote from Baranovich: “1. Steve and I welcomed a new player 2. he brought along his Empire army 3. we fought Dwarven Holds and Sylvan Elves allied against The Empire ” Translation: "Hey, there's a new bloke in town! Let's put aside our usual feud and join forces to beat him to crap!" Strange way to welcome newcomers... Superb Thunder Brew Inn, by the way

    Quote from Marcos24: “Quote from Mercenary Armies: “i dont wanna da paycart! ” But more people than you DO ” How to conciliate? A- Make sure that the AB is equally playable with or without paycart. B- Make the paycart rules unspecific enough so it may represent as easily a paycart, a command wagon, a high tech arcane weapon on a cart... possibly by giving it widely diverging options. To be discussed once the first draft of the AB is made and we review entry after entry in this global context.

    Fine with me. Busy week ahead, but I will have time from the second week of November on.

  • Sorry, but strangely, what you seem to regret from T9A is not what the project is doing. - we're not trying to homogenize armies, that is the opposite. However, the armies you use as examples are still in their initial state, inspired heavily from legacy. They should get a complete overhaul in the years to come, and this overhaul will definitively give them unique strengths and weaknesses compared to other armies. What you deplore, we deplore as well. But there is no magic to change it brutally …

    Not sure you would want to know. (Hidden Content)

  • I love this kind of serious debate about Fantasy.

  • Quote from Baranovich: “Certain characters from the lore suddenly become extremes, they show up on every tabletop (because they are auto-include) ” I remember in WH that Teclis would show up more often in HE list than all other Elves characters combined. He was such a busy man! No wonder that named characters were banned from tournaments. The habits being implemented, no wonder that T9A did not bother to develop named characters yet. No wonder that there is no demand from players interested in t…

    Quelques erreurs d'orthographe ou grammaire. Je me suis permis de corriger directement le post 93. Si ce n'est pas convenable, dis-le et je remet la version précédente. Ah, je me suis aussi permis de remplacer "préfaite" par "prédéfinie", mais je suis bien conscient qu'une telle audace pourrait choquer.

  • @Aeon Thank you for taking th time to post. Sorry for the inconvenience. Only a couple of months to wait and you will be able to print out the new rules. About the new magic, sure, it is less powerful than what you may recall... but that was when you were able to roll the appropriate spells. Players are near unanimous to like better the new magic, where there is less exceptional effect but also no more game ruined turn 1 or 2 (for either the player who did miscast, or his opponent on the receivi…
