Re: Farisght: Crisis of Faith - New Farsight novel in july

They're described in a Space Marine book, I'm going to forget which one, as giant bird like creatures that are particularly hated because they make you remember things (like highly emotional memories of your childhood) which, for a Space Marine, is extremely traumatic since they mostly are ripped fr...

Re: Frontier: The Highest Wall

Just for you A Manta class dropship was designed to hold an entire Cadre, deliver them into combat and support them indefinitely in any theater of war. To see one so completely empty like this seemed wrong. The only source of illumination came from a glow globe Juu'oh held up, revealing the strippe...

Re: The Tau Sorcerer

I think this conversation is, unfortunately, going the way of: 'you make the game you want' I've always been opposed to this because the whole point of liking a certain genre is also enjoying the restrictions of a universe in order to give characters obstacles. I'll use the example of Hyperspace in ...

Re: How is A sept founded how long does it take.

I largely agree with Arka0415, but I disagree that population has something to do with it as there seems to be such a variety of different Septs. Instead, I'd say that a Sept is more or less 'declared' after it has shown the necessary, unique, requirements to be called one just like a Trial by Fire ...

Re: The Tau Sorcerer

So, is it POSSIBLE that a Tau could use warp powers? I mean... Ultimately it's whatever you want, but... at least looking through the lens of the better fluff; no. And I don't consider the garbage that is Farsight's books to be anything near canonical since it can't even reference its own books cor...

Re: How is A sept founded how long does it take.

In the few canonical examples we have it seems that they generally take a long time to form and it's not necessarily a given that every colony will become a Sept. Colonies go through phases that can take centuries of investment on behalf of neighboring systems, slowly growing before they achieve 'Se...

Re: The Fate of Konor: 40K Global Campaign

I think it could be really interesting to be decidedly against the Imperium; we did just finish getting crippled in the Third Sphere by a crusade and lost our Ethereal Prime to an Imperial assassin.

Re: Frontier: The Highest Wall

It's been a while- happy to continue: Commander Ga'rah was a student of Kauyon, the Patient Hunter, and had spent her youth in the battledomes enmeshed in the Shadowsun engram nexus. There, the ghostly image of the famed leader of the Fire Caste had appeared in her mind's eye where she spent countl...

Agreed- I think they'll line up with yours after the administrator narrows it down to what we all seem to be concluding. I'm down.

Bridging the Gap

Without wanting to spark another round of "stop complaining and just enjoy a game" vs "I spend way too much money on this hobby for them to screw over my armylist/fluff" I've been reading the index and thinking about what's happening in the Tau side of the galaxy. Not only have o...

Re: Farisght: Crisis of Faith - New Farsight novel in july

It'd be a waste if a forum post to discuss a novel that the other party hasnt read.

If you're just going after my own criticisms (such as the use ot the word 'cuz') it's okay, literally (no sarcasm) I'm just going to pass.

Tauman:

Fyi we have descriptions of Nicassar from at least one Inquisitor book where they are described as having a beak.

Re: Farisght: Crisis of Faith - New Farsight novel in july

Well... I read it: It's badly written... like, some kind of anime 13+ novel. Seriously... My opinion of Farsight is that he's a tween fighting the urges of hormonal relief as well as emo-freedom. The combat is described in the most basic of WB action sequences- I wish there had been the grim-horror ...

I'm about halfway through this book... it is so completely terrible... so utterly a piece of garbage... It's like this guy doesn't know there are any other books/codexes out there... it's so so so so so... so bad. It honestly reads like an anime novel for Tweens, the Chaos daemons sound like they wa...

Re: Farisght: Crisis of Faith - New Farsight novel in july

@ Panzer: Well it was poignant and directly contradicts your claim. Everyone should read Broken Sword by Guy Haley. No one should pay attention to these Farsight novels... the guy says he thinks Tau blood is red because it looks better on models... while chaos demons talk like they're out of a Berze...
