    Entry Thread. Turning the World to Darkness: Vampiric Miniature 2018

    I'll admit, Age of Sigmar is yet to capture my imagination. Anyway, might give it a try.

    No hurry, comrade. When you feel comfortable.

    The Chains of Gabrielle: A beginners Roleplay Sign-up Thread

    Awkward. Thanks for noting that. Hey, we're crusading against the dead, Morr's sworn enemies. It's to be expected. Now if we had two priests of Sotek, that would be bizarre. Still, I better check out Duke's character to make sure I don't wind up with a clone. And thanks for the welcome. Look...

    Whatever happened to vashanesh?

    My interest in Warcraft began and ended with reign of chaos. So I dodged a bullet there. :innocent: Yeah. Apparently, the Khemrians were real sexists. Who knew? Not me, given that one of their special characters was a queen, and it was never mentioned before, but given that the vampire...

    The Chains of Gabrielle: A beginners Roleplay Sign-up Thread

    Name: Konrad Daidin Character: Height: 6.7 Age: 27 Build: Lean and muscular Hair Colour: dark brown Skin: Pale Eye Colour: Green Personality: Dour, grim and quiet, Konrad fit's the public's perception of a priest of Morr remarkably well, if a touch younger, larger and less...

    Whatever happened to vashanesh?

    They didn't eat the dead at that point. Eating animals was mentioned. Sorry, honest mistake. No real life examples please. You'll offend people, and we'll have a religious war on our hands. First up, I never said perfect. I wouldn't, because it's a stupid thing to say. There's no such thing...

    Whatever happened to vashanesh?

    Personally, I feel the reason the Von Carstien's have always eclipsed the others was entirely the popularity of the characters. Vlad winds up with a supporting caste of fully fleshed out individuals, while the others languish unexplored. This is partly because the Von Carstien's are the most...

    Whatever happened to vashanesh?

    If he did (and it's possible, I admit) then he had some pretty hefty magic on his side, that he never demonstrated at any other point. I mean, no other Vampire, many of whom are considerably more learned, had more time (presumably), and considerably more resources, has come close to making...

    Whatever happened to vashanesh?

    Sure. That's always been clear, the War of the Beard being a fine example (Three different explanations, each distinct). My concern is the ignoring of earlier books and the details established within them. I've complained about Ushoran enough, so I won't reiterate it (though I am tempted)...

    Whatever happened to vashanesh?

    Vashanesh has been around in some fashion as long as the idea of Bloodlines has existed. For the most part, he's remained fairly undeveloped, because unlike the others he lacks a crippling over-specialization that they can turn into his entire personality. This is because, for the most part, The...

    Whatever happened to vashanesh?

    Yes. And once she had power of her own, she didn't want to share it either. QED. I'm talking from a writing perspective. Any Macguffin in the lore could justify it. Some two-bit lord of change could have arranged it, they could have all met in a bar, I'm not talking about the in-universe...

    Whatever happened to vashanesh?

    Sorry, posts a lot faster then I expected. Here's the important answers (I think). In The Legend of Sigmar, you see him and Krell (Arkhan's replacement, seems he followed Neferetta's advice). The Heldenhammer kills Nagash before he gets a chance. So not much chance of that. I'd assume, he was...

    Whatever happened to vashanesh?

    Fair enough. He was the first bearer of the ring, so it makes sense he'd take a new identity as appropriate. And though Vlad's own inner monologue in the Inheritance series (an excellent read, I might add) would suggest otherwise, they've contradicted themselves before. Part of the fun. But...

    Whatever happened to vashanesh?

    Having played Vampire Counts since 5th Edition, I'm somewhat used to changes of lore. However, I have noted something interesting in the Time of Legends novels (the ones pertaining to Nefereta and Nagash). The first thing is taking the myth out of the stories, the characters all feel a lot less...

    Introduce yourself!

    I am called Ketch117. I hope I find myself welcome in this house. To come in health, go safely and leave behind some of the happiness that I bring… That out of the way, I've been playing Warhammer on and off for some years, and have been collecting an Undead army most of that time. I was linked...
