Re: What and where is Zaiyon?

I don't know, but that is a reference to Zion ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zion ) from the time Dwarves in exile in Man's Empire, were seen as Warhammer Fantasy's jewish communities. It seems that it was borrowed from Tolkien's Dwarves, rather than being a Warhammer Fantasy 's innovation on Dwar...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

Which is pretty much the same thing that the pharaoh Akhenaton said about Aton. On that subject this short documentary (27 min) might interest some of us: Quand l'histoire fait dates : - 1350 la révolution religieuse d'Akhenaton Zahlen schreiben Geschichte: 1350 v.

Re: Who has run both enemy within and doomstones

Doomstones should only be played after TEW though IMHO, gives starting characters a chance to gain experience through TEW before going on the romp in Doomstones. An option could be to integrate Doomstones campaign into Sigmar's hammer quest (in Empire in Flames). That is to say to send adventurers ...

Re: Eye for an Eye 4E conversion

They have published a part of the Edge of Night (as "Lords of Ubersreik" in Rough Nights and Hard Days ). It is said they might, perhaps, also publish parts of The Enemy Within in The Horned Rat , Empire in Ruins or in their companions... Beyond that, I don't know. They seem to use WFRP3's Ubersreik...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

1. Akhenaton did forbid all other cults and established a true monotheist cult, with one unique god. Clearly, we were no longer in a frame of a polytheist regime. All other gods were declared false and their cult was forbidden. In the case of the Sigmarite-Ulrician war, only those two gods and their...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

There isn't any disagreement between us on that part. As far as I understood your messages, the disagreement is rather on the fact that a polytheist society wouldn't realistically forbid the worship of a god of its pantheon, something that you deny while I do not. Am I correct? specifically, i'm sa...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

In a polytheist society, things are simpler. Gods are natural phenomenons that we know and Khaíne wouldn't be considered, alone, as being "a positive part of the political system" more than the rain, the sun, stars, wind, birds, ageing, insects, illness, the moon, birth, air, sea, death, clouds, &c...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

i want to just lean over and point out that the sigmarite/ulrikan schism is entirely because the sigmarite church insists that sigmar is The god now and the other gods of the empire are subservient to him (with one source implying some splinter groups think that the other gods no longer exist havin...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

Alleging that "[p]olitics and religion not mixing well [would be] a fairly standard foundation of human behaviour" show that you adopt a pure Abrahamic monotheistic frame of reference on politics, religion or "human behaviour", which is simply absurd to considerate polytheist politics, religion or "...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

i understand you feel you should explore how khainite worship could work, but i want to make it clear that the lore outright states that the cult of khaine is outlawed, full-stop, throughout the old world. the cult itself is simply linked inexorably to ritual murder and anti-social sentiments and r...

Well, all societies -including non-genocidal ones- have or had cases of approved or tolerated murders...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

Two points I had in mind, but never took the time to share: khaine's cult is forbidden because the cult murders people as part of their faith. it's not a religious position it's literally most of the are murderers and considered incitement to violence. knowing what an edgelord khaine is he probably ...

Re: Is Imperial polytheism realistic?

that's just it, in fantasy the gods aren't magical in their powers . it's been fairly consistent throughout fantasy's history that miricles are not operating the same way magical matter does and instead are using a "divine" power source unrelated to the magic as we know it, diffused from the realm ...
