Sorry for newbie question: What are THR, EiR and PBtT ?
I believe that these are the adventure modules: The Horned Rat, Enemy in Shadows (I think), and Power Behind the Throne.

Timeline Questions

Age of Sigmar specifically avoids giving explicit dates for events. This makes it hard to narrow down exactly when things occurred, which is fine for a tabletop miniature battles game, but somewhat more challenging when dealing with an RPG. When it comes to the timeline, here's what I've come up wit...

Of course; if not, what use would they have for the Talent?

Re: Which Mark(s) of Chaos for Lord Selpher Zaronax?

mark of chaos undivided is a thing, you've always been able to choose that for daemon princes (although it's always been a really sub-optimal choice). They don't give the Chaos Undivided option for Daemon Princes in either the Soulbound Bestiary or in the AoS Slaves to Darkness Battletome (consulte...

Re: Which Mark(s) of Chaos for Lord Selpher Zaronax?

I see no reason why you couldn't introduce Archaon as a new minor chaos God alongside Malal/Hashut/Horned Rat if you wanted to. Have Larry S Zooman report to Archaon directly? LSZ does report directly to Archaon, but I don't think it fits to have Archaon providing his own Chaos Mark (but he can, or...

Re: Which Mark(s) of Chaos for Lord Selpher Zaronax?

Having considered it a bit more, I'm comfortable going with Slaanesh for LSZ. Why Slaanesh? Well, destroy rather conquer and corrupting beyond use give me the "done with this, what's next" vibe. Once LSZ has had his enjoyment from unleashing destruction, he wants to move on, not develop (even in a c...

Which Mark(s) of Chaos for Lord Selpher Zaronax?

I've been reviewing locations and enemies in the Great Parch, and Castle Drakesbane (Soulbound Core, p.222) provides the Daemon Prince called Lord Selpher Zaronax (hereafter LSZ). From what I know of AoS lore, all Daemon Princes need to be marked by a Chaos god (excepting Be'lakor), but LSZ doesn't ...

AoS lore and oddball characters.

As far as I have seen, Soulbound places no restrictions on duardin learning the spellcasting talent (excepting The Ethersea and The High Peaks). Does Age of Sigmar lore feature any examples of spellcasting duardin? Were all of the souls selected to be Stormcast Eternals originally humans? Were any o...

How do Stormcast Eternals buy new Sigmarite gear or have it issued?

If a Stormcast Eternal PC wants to add some gear to their kit, do they buy it like everyone else, or do they requisition it from their Stormhost (presumably during the Endeavour that takes them back for a check-in)? Of particular relevance is when the new gear is something like Sigmarite weapons/arm...

Of those, Ghyran or Azyr is probably the one that grabs at me the most because they change some of the basic assumptions of how you get around.
Could you elaborate on those changed assumptions? I have not read the novels you mentioned.

Where to go? Where to avoid?

The Mortal Realms are HUGE. Even with Realmgates to link them, they are literally several worlds to explore. So, are there any particular parts of the Moral Realms that you find most interesting for setting Soulbound games (and why)? Any particular parts you tend to avoid (and why)? I know that The ...

Re: You can't get there from here. Not until Tuesday.

Re: You can't get there from here. Not until Tuesday.

I guess the redundancy of Realmgates in that respect depends on how big the realms are @Hyarion. The core setting of Soulbound is the Great Parch, an island/continent in the Realm of Aqshy. They give a map, but the map does not have a scale. One of the novels notes that a city, Draconium, lies 282 ...

Re: WFRP x AOS Soulbound

From my understanding, the statistics and game mechanics are very different. AoS reminded me of WhiteWolf WoD from a game mechanics perspective. If you wanted to bring AoS into WFRP or vice versa, I think you'd have to do a lot of work to convert adventures or just homebrew your own to approximate ...

Re: WFRP x AOS Soulbound

There are rules in the Soulbound core book for playing grim & perilous characters, but the game's scale isn't focused on that. While WFRP (2e & 4e are the ones I'm familiar with) give fine variations within the typical human range, in Soulbound, regular people are all crammed into a narrow range nea...

Re: Recruiting the Soulbound

All good questions, and I don't really know either. But if I had to make something up, I would say that when mortals die and go to Sigmar for judgement (let's say, substitute Alarielle, Grungni, Teclis, etc as needed), he picks some out and then imbues them with a spark of his essence 'binding' the...

You can't get there from here. Not until Tuesday.

Anyone have any insights into the Realmgates to share? Do they have fixed destinations on both ends? Do they always allow travel in both directions? Are they always open, or do they have 'active' and 'dormant' modes? Are there any differences between gates that move between realms and those that mov...

I've read over both the Soulbound Core and Champions of Order, and I'm still unsure of a few things regarding bindings of the Soulbound. The first area that I'm curious about is: how are the Soulbound recruited? Champions of Order notes that the various gods (and a few other beings of great power) c...
