    Re: Workshop Unofficial 9th Edition Fluff?

    I'm going to risk a necromancy warning to say: excellent work! I've been searching for something like this for quite a while now, and I'm happy I found it.

    Are you still working on this Presentdent?

    I took a look at endhammer too. It looks pretty good, though there's a lot of... /tg/ going around. Not necessarily in a good way.

    A couple of days ago I decided I don't want to let the WHFB world go. Probably I'm just too old, and I've got too much time and money invested in that broken world. Don't get me wrong, I'm no AOS-hater. I find the fluff decent, interesting even. I love the nods to the Old World, the returning characters, the idea of a major offensive by the good guys etc. But it's not WHFB, and it's very light. I realized while thinking about an empire civil war campaign that there are a lot of things you can't really do with the AoS fluff because it's so light. As an example there's nothing as "intricately" detailed as the elector count system (or even the Empire, with all it's rich history) in AoS. There's little to build campaigns on except the most generic of stuff (like "my chaos warband v yours") and the immense scale of the universe makes most battles a bit pointless.

    Problem is GW nuked the old world, so now Seth we have to pick up the pieces. I'd love for there to be a version of a post-ET world (with some necessary changes to the ET timeline of course) that has at least some community backing. Doesn't have to be universally accepted, I'd just be nice if the setting had a decent amount of followers. I've been tinkering with various ideas on how to make the smallest possible adjustments to the ET story to allow for the world to continue existing, and not having every single named character ending up dead. Definitely going to use the things in this thread for inspiration and if I ever produce anything I'll be sure to post it!

    I've also been considering the problem of a world that never moves forward due to lack of new official fluff. But when you think about, that's really no different then what we all got used to playing WHFB. Save the odd campaign here and there, and those campaigns you can easily do yourself with your gaming group (or even worldwide campaigns in 9th age or something). And given WH: Total War, I'm not entirely convinced GW is ready to let this IP go. We're getting at least one fresh injection of background material with the TW game, and the likelyhood of expansions is high. The likelyhood of future games, or other sources of background material (even perhaps books) seems equally high. It won't move the timeline forward past ET, players will have to take responsibility of that themselves, but it will continue to flesh out the world.

    Anyway, that's what I hope.

We’ve lost a lot, that’s for sure, but there’s no use crying over spilt ale. As long as the mountains are made of stone, there’ll be dwarfs in them, of that I’ve no doubt.’

    Also, I got to ask, is there a summary of Josh's answers somewhere? I read the three in the OP, but he's got over a thousand on ask.fm, I don't really want to read through them all but I'm very interested in what he's got to say about alternate endings and "what if".

    About reynolds, in that thread I put few more(which it clearly the best imput those people put it) and president left out because he didnt agree with the tone of the forum(he star bad mouthy AoS in his post even when it wasnt related and when I told him to stop he refuse so they erase their post and he left in response) but if you want to follow their project, here it is:

    https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Endhammer

    But I you allow my opinion, It isn worth to follow, why? because they focus WAAAAAAY more in preserving the old world and the setting as whole that truly explore the ramification of the setting now the cards have been play, for example.

    Somehow Bretonnia end pretty well, with several bretonnia nobles taking position in Estala and Tilea, is weird because the country was barely standing after the event of Nagash, not to said they barely do something with Giles conection to Aborash...instead, Giles is Giles and he manage to turn around things....somehow.

    Vlad and Isabella are good again....somehow....and plotting to take over the empire.

    Horned rat destroy skavenblight......WHY?

    and so own, the more you read, is clear they dont want to move post End times, just to take the status quo they want it and stick there because they can, that was the big issue of Storm of chaos and is clear they learn nothing of it.

    But anyway, if you are still decided to go on about it, I will glady pass Josh answer about the fate of the chararter and his AU chararters.

    Oh, AoS remains as divisive as ever I see.

    Thanks for the info though. I'm still mostly interested in doing something on my own so I'm mostly looking for inspiration. I read all the Josh Reynold answers you put in your two posts, a lot of good info there. Most of it is about "what happened to character X" in End Times but there were a couple of good ones about what would have happened had the world not ended. I think it can serve as a great basis for a post-ET timeline.

    The T9A project is just a spiritual successor, very different background. That said, of course you can play any setting you want.

    The fluff should be released with gold edition.

    Major differences so far are 7 Gods of Chaos, fully new motivations and background as well.

    EDIT: wiki link for current background

    Indeed, this would rather be placed in Old World section, believe it or not (unless this T9A forum was made into general Warhammer legacy). No worries, subtle nuances for those not following it all, but these things will become clearer for all in due time (because of content output, not legal posturing). T9A is crystallizing as much more of its own beast. Spiritual successor indeed: A Warhammer clone, if you will.

    Still, it remains to be seen if T9A as a setting can capture the imagination of its players and run away with it the way Warhammer fantasy did through depth, detail, wacky humour and a vast, well-executed over the top smörgåsbord of elements from fantasy, mythology, folklore and history. Most of us are still playing T9A and other games with the brilliance of Warhammer in our heads. Give it time to grow and prove itself worthy.

    Cheers

    As a project for the people by the people, it depends on what "the people" do with it. I for my part will be exploring the world of T9A in terrain. So far the official background is about as much as AoS.
