  • Quote from Nicreap: “Quote from Zwei: “Again. I never said the rule has to be removed. I don't like getting words put in my mouth so please stop that. But outright halving dmg for combat resolution is too much in my opinion. I can imagine it with certain restrictions or conditions, but not as it is right now. ” I agree there are real simple changes, like going from 1/2 to 1/3 if it is found to be problematic. Still have the rule and effect, but can be tweaked to match the desired powerlevel. ” O…

    Quote from ferny: “Quote from WhammeWhamme: “The World of the Ninth Age is not divisible into four armed camps. There are sixteen armed camps, and arguably more within those. I know! But are we really saying there are no over arching alliances or belligerents? I'm sure we're not because we've already identified empire Vs HBE (land Vs sea) and ID vs OK. Other nations will have a tendency to support one side or the other for the varied reasons related to hegemony Cal laid out. This support can flu…

    Quote from ferny: “Yes absolutely whamme, that would be great. Legacy and now AoS had armies of order, chaos, destruction and death, and within those particular frictions (war of the beard). But I don't recall for example empire and bretonnia ever being anything other than allies, except for minor skirmishes. Dwarfs were staunch allies of the empire. Do these broad characterisations carry through, or do we find surprises in the new t9a setting? Are the empire and kingdom intense rivals, actively…

    Quote from Eldan: “Interesting aside... I always thought it was a bit weird that in so many fantasy settings, the people who live in the cold worship some kind of ice god. Sure, there's a lot of ice around, but surely, that would make it less divine and impressive, not more so. Kislev actually does that, their main god is Dazh, god of the Sun, Fire, the Hearth and Hospitality. He lives in the northern lights and helps those who get lost in the cold. Seems to be, in real world terms, sort of a mi…

    Quote from Eldan: “Except Kislev has had similar logos for at least 20 years, so it's the other way around. I mean, it's a bear head, not a wolf, but otherwise, it's been remarkably similar. Tbear head of Ursun with the curved hussar wing around it is one of their Symbols. At least back to Realm of the Ice Queen. ” I'm not saying you're wrong, but I can't find any google evidence to support this and I-for-one don't know s*** about Kislev beyond "bear cavalry" and "Ice" and "Russia, right?". Quot…

    Quote from ferny: “What happened to that story/article Cal? It provides a framing for why armies fight in general, but we need more specifics. We need battles (or better, wars!) between specific races to draw on for our own battles. And framings for conflict between specific nations. It's easy to fluff petty local reasons, but what are the Great Schemes between nations? And conversely, are there nations for whom their Schemes are broadly in allignment? Are the emperor and king of sohnsrall and e…

  • Quote from Darken: “I'm Bugged by the hidden lore in the game right now. What sparked this post was that I was informed that there was absolutely no way the cuatl will get access to cosmology even though their lore is changing and they are specifically trying to understand the working of the universe. What is the study of the universe? It is literally cosmology. But apparently it has a hidden link to religion that isn't apparent to anyone and so the cuatl will not be able to use it for that reas…

    Quote from darkknight109: “Quote from Harmonize: “Give Immortals R 5. That will make the unit a good, anvil When it cannot have better then 3+ armour. ” If Beta 2 Whispers (-1 to Wound for S5 and better) was considered too powerful, I'm almost certain that a straight-up R5 (which is strictly better than Beta 2 Whispers against most targets) would also be off-limits. Believe me, I'd love to have that tough brick back, but we're apparently constrained on that point by RT rulings. ” Point of clarif…

  • Quote from Baldin: “Quote from Igthorn: “can someone explain "Warborn"? ” *Just my speculation* I think warborn is t9a rename of green skins. So, as Arwaker states the name of the faction (besides Orcs and Goblins) ” This is correct, because T9A O&G are not (always) green and we wanted a one-word name for them collectively (where O&G is either three or an acronym. ) Quote from bas_2312: “ Quote from Baldin: “So we have our top 3. 1. Orcs have this very emphasised behaviour progression with age. …

    Quote from Peacemaker: “Quote from Estebanvol: “365 - 16 Disciples of Lugar, Paired Weapons ” Interesting only 1 unit of Lugars and the project's hotfix warranted a points increase to the great weapon.An explanation would be nice. Was it an accidental oversight? ” Someone made a typo; it was always supposed to be 3 points (and was correctly listed as 3 points in the update summary).

  • I have no idea what you can see, and I'm also not sure what layout related thing you think you can't see?

  • Quote from ferny: “Acknowledged. But what I take from that is neither "we are working on it" or "soon", but rather "it is known about but not priority". Which is fine, per se, but distinct. Query: if layout had the capacity, could it just flow and happen, or would it need other inputs? If it would require additional input then I think for it to change status to "we are working on it", we would need a member of AvB or someone else to be assigned as BG Compendium lead/coordinator. Then there is a …

    Quote from SlaveToThePyre: “Quote from TheChange: “Quote from SlaveToThePyre: “I'm sorry, I'm not understanding what the issue was. Could someone please explain it...? ” The spell created some confusion as it had both permanent (token) and last one turn effects (debuff). ” Thanks. But I still don't understand what was the problem with that. The "permanent" effect was vividly visible due to the token itself. So it was not hard to remember that one effect was permanent and the other was not. I sim…

  • Quote from Frumious: “@kisanis I see all that. I still don’t see much excuse for seeing staff make rude and condescending statements to former staff, each other, or simply people with differing opinions. It dosnt seem to jive with the collaborative open environment you personnel seem to have and profess others share. In fact it appears to be activly discouraging that. I think disagreeing on ideas is great. Personal attacks not so much. Reading all that negative interaction drives people away, IM…
