    All our factions have multiple sources of inspiration.

    Quote from Bulls Eye: “Thanks @Giladis for clearing this up. I didn't know this but have the feeling, the project has some real gifted writers in their ranks, so man could imagine they would Come up with some new original background, without standing at some other game designers toe? ” We indeed do have a really diverse, knowledgeable and gifted team but it is not just about what other game designers did (even just checking all possible fantasy games produced so far would be herculean task) but …

    Quote from Bulls Eye: “I am not a fan of fantasy races being regularly compared to real life cultures. IMHO this went really wrong with the New VS guidelines (no offence intended). ” That is for legal reasons. Coming up with unique ideas is difficult and we do not have resources to check all potential sources of IP to determine whether an idea has already been used somewhere or not and whether it is protected or not. Using real world history and cultures, in other word materials part of the publ…

  • Quote from Bogi: “Just out of curiosity, why do the books not contain ilatic fluff above the rules? ” You mean as being side by side in the document? If yes then it is a layout and document creation and maintenance issue we cannot solve without many more helping hands inside the Layout team.

    Can you elaborate why on the following points please. I am curious. Quote from clorens: “the beasts must be moved by hatred, towards other races ” Why should they be more hate driven than other factions? What is the source of that hate? Quote from clorens: “worship their bloody gods. ” Why do their gods need to be bloody? Quote from clorens: “an eagerness to destroy the work of man ” Why singling out men out of all other species in the setting? Cheers

    Quote from sonny1086: “Do i get it right, that you NEVER "adopt" any (congrete) suggestions, because T9A is afraid of IP issues? If you take all suggestions only as inspiration, you will propably run out of good options. ” If we see an interesting mechanic that fits the background we have produced we could adopt it since mechanics are not copyrightable. Only totality of a legal expression of a specific concept is. Which means we could not just incorporate someone else's work because we would not…

  • I guess I wasn't clear enough earlier. Some avatars of nature are "physiologically" treefathers, some aren't. Avatar of Nature is a name of a function/class not a name of a specific creature.

    Quote from Chronocide: “Regarding the second point, it really just depends how good and popular the fan made content is and if they are willing to donate it to T9A or not. I think, officially, you are totally correct, but I don't think it would work like that in practice. ” I agree with you there is no point in debating because I am telling you how it is due to legal constraints. The Project will not do something no matter how popular it is if it is on legally dangerous grounds. We first look at…

    Quote from baldargent: “Quote from Giladis: “Quote from baldargent: “How many "wall banner " could i take in my army? ” Only 1 as per normal Special Items rules. ” so maybe ,it will be notified like other banner 0-1 per army? ” There is no need. All items are 0-1 unless specifically noted as being 0-2 (as is the case with Trial of Ashuruk) or 0-3

    Quote from Chronocide: “updating balance one faction at a time ” T9A updates balance in batches which is the exact opposite. Quote from Chronocide: “I suppose, rather than waiting, a bunch of fans could put together a custom Beast supplement book that was basically an updated beastmen armybook. It might not be entirely official, at least not at first, but all of T9A is basically fan made, so it could be adopted at some point, or integrated into the new book. ” Considering the LAB creation proces…

  • Part of the LAB creation process is to take the existing book and decompose it to the constituent concepts, cross reference them with the Background and Army Design Guidelines. From that starting point the book is rebuilt from the ground up staying true to the background and design guidelines while trying to ensure established themes, styles and tropes are maintained.

  • Quote from Chronocide: “Is the room for a Dread Elf unit that wears the freshly flayed skins of the race of the opposing army? Perhaps some sort of "only elves are charismatic enough to pull this off" infiltration via the fleshsuits? ” Quote from Madsvg: “Not with how they are building the background so far. We're less scary and terrible now. ” There are still plenty of units in the background which would do that for various reasons without needing specific rules to represent it. You could have …

  • There are still 6 members of the team to share their lists and I distinctly remember one had spent all its Core points on Dark Raiders.

BGT and AT already have their hands full finishing ID, working on DE and starting VS, with the 6th book to be announced at some point soon in the future. ” I'm not talking about releasing the whole guidelines lines. I'm talking about explaining the design reasoning for DE. Such as the mandate to have no 2+ armour saves. Simpl…

  • Quote from elendor_f: “In the Ninth Scroll vol. 12 p.34 we can read a legend about five Elven princes and a special set of armour forged by the god Dorac, which is heavily implied to be the origin of the enchantment Protection of Dorac. Are there similar legends for, say, the Book of Meladys or Elu's Heartwood? Is the Book of Meladys named to honour the goddess, or is there a legend telling that she wrote the first volume / inspired the first author of the book / something similar? I don't know …

  • Quote from Lord Drakon: “@Giladis what do you think about this 'Elves in T9A' information / general directions during launch of DE book? ” Highly unlikely because in the future design guidelines are not planned to be released without the Background support document. BGT and AT already have their hands full finishing ID, working on DE and starting VS, with the 6th book to be announced at some point soon in the future.
