Re: Nurgle cults - what defines them?

The Chaos god Nurgle was inspired by the Mesopotamian god Nergal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nergal So, there might perhaps be an use to retro-inspire from Nergal Nurgle's cults. On official sources: All the Chaos gods are embodiments of the hopes, fears and other strong emotions and concepts gen...

Re: Comparison with Zweihander

Not saying it's necessarily "theft", but it's certainly more blatant than the gods and magic in Zweihander. Sorry to state again the obvious, but it is quite the reverse than what you are not saying: it is necessarily not theft . Games Workshop could had stole any support on which is draw or descri...

Re: Comparison with Zweihander

Calling it "theft" seem totally stupid: intellectual property is, by definition, immaterial and obviously one can only steal, by definition, material things.
Hence, intellectual property cannot be stolen... it might, however, be counterfeited, which is a very different thing.

Re: Imperial Calendar

If they have a printed yearly calendar on which they might write or draw things, it doesn't pose problems for player to understand how much time has passed and what seasons were (especially with my presentation : the first line is spring, the second line is summer, the third line is autumn, the four...

"They came in their silvery vessels. Impossibly powerful. Mysterious. Then our world was frozen, huge and empty. Life was simple, barbaric, without language, knowledge or civilisation.

Re: Enemy In Shadows Companion Available

As far as I can tell, none of the official WFRP or WFB publications (not counting Boxtree or Black Library) have ever listed a date of death for Karl-Franz's father. Boxtree, which is an official publisher, but a novel one, not a roleplay nor battle one, did, p. vij of its Warhammer novels and anth...

Re: Enemy In Shadows Companion Available

Elector situation in 2512 and other fluff there is pretty interesting considering situation in circa 252X. Very exited to see how story goes, when they get to the final parts of the TEW. I still think the civil-war is happening... And why is Prince Luitpold banished away? Wolfgang is named heir… As...

Yes that is for sure.

LE GOFF, La civilisation de l'Occident médiéval.

This presentation of the Roman Empire, at the 1st century of our era, by the famous French medievalist historian Jacques Le Goff, appears to me to be the perfect historical example of what would be, in the Warhammer World, a society that follows precepts of the Law gods: Placée par Romulus sous le s...

To answer to your thought, well, that isn't the case: all gods are not Chaos gods in disguise ! All gods come from realms of Chaos (more simply knows as warp), that is quite different... There ...

Re: Origins of the Gods.

That's 40k, and AoS. this was never established in fantasy products, which establishes fairly thoroughly that divine magic is unrelated to the realm of chaos. I do not know AOS. I've never opened an AOS book nor read a line of it: I stopped following Warhammer Fantasy and other GW products around A...

but I think if/when Bretonnia comes up it will be the WFB version rather than the 1st edition WFRP version.

Re: Origins of the Gods.

The influence of Lovecraft and of Call of Cthulhu over Warhammer is undeniable but it influenced Warhammer's mood and occult horror investigations roleplay scenarii.

Re: Origins of the Gods.

things are a little more complex for the non-human races. the elven gods are essentially all representations of aspects of the elven psyche (yes, even the elves' gods exist to reflect how great the elves see themselves).
