This game/book looks super interesting, thanks for sharing the link. Just put my order in for a physical copy, really looking forward to using it to flesh out my characters!
I'm pleased you found it useful, I'm going to dive back into it soon myself.
No worries! Share your thoughts if you'd like, be happy to help
I'm definitely a Deathrattle centered player, and if I can get away with it most of my army will be composed of that keyword. Vampires have their good points, but at the end of the day their first master is their hunger. Wight Kings have their own hungers, no doubt, but I enjoy that nostalgia is paramount, that they are the vestiges of once mighty kingdoms and their golden ages, long since forgotten by mortal memory. "Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair," in the "flesh."
In traditional folklore, the undead sometimes rise to enact revenge or justice, but what if the scales were unbalanced because mankind let itself fall into ruin and ignorance. Would not the Pharaohs and Caesars weep to see the desecration of their tombs and the desolation of their monuments? How many of the seven wonders of the ancient world still stand? One, and the great pyramid is a mockery of its former glory.
Aesthetically, and culturally, I prefer the trappings of knighthood to those of the ancient cultures. This picture encapsulates the sort of character I'd like my Wight King general to be, darkly chivalrous. One concept I had for my army was called the Order of the Amethyst Sword/Blade, where a Templar inspired army was overwhelmed and the general awoken by the now undead priests of his religious sect to carry on his work as their champion. I think I'd like to go for something a little more secular however, though I do still like the name. One thing I love about Wight Kings is their irrepressible independence.
