“We have bougth new wonders with the clay of the human flesh” – Robute guillaime lord commander of the imperium – Warhammer 4000 8 th edition.

Warhammer Community – Warhammer 40000

Sembra quasi un manifesto programmatico di Alien e forse questa è veramente l’edizione che mi fa venire voglia ricominciare a giocare.

Vedremo come proseguirà lo sviluppo e se veramente la GW questa volta ha intenzione di avere un approccio più vicino alla propria comunità di giocatori.

Intanto la copia di Shadow War Armageddon che avevo ordinato è arrivata al negozio e lunedì spero di prenderla finalmente in mano.

Culto dei Genoraptor, work in progress.

Pare che la Games Workshop stia cambiando la sua linea editoriale (prove oggettive starebbero nella FAQ) e ci prepariamo ad una nuova edizione di Warhammer 40.000 che sarà sicuramente una svolta, con tutti i dubbi del caso se sarà positiva o negativa. Per una volta la speranza è per il meglio sperando che in corso d’opera non sconfessi il manifesto programmatico.

Nel frattempo io sto risparmiando per la copia singola del nuovo manuale di Shadow War Armageddon e mi sto dedicando al culto dei Genoraptor. Shadow War è l’erede di Necromunda e contiene a detta di molti una buona revisione delle regole, sono quindi curioso di  vedere il suo contenuto.

Nel frattempo ecco una foto del lavoro svolto fino ad ora. IMG_20170425_110307.jpg

 

The Terrasse Estate

Dyson's Dodecahedron

One of the older estate houses in the city, the Terrasse Estate perches on a small rise, the highest point in the noble district. The grey-brown building itself is of quite old stonework and very small size for a noble estate -making it more interesting for its age than floorplan.

Terrasse Estate Terrasse Estate

The estate has been home to a number of noble families throughout the eras of the city, and for the last eighty years it has been home to the governor of the region. If anything, this is part of the reason why this governorship is generally viewed as a demotion or a hardship posting as there isn’t even enough room in the cold structure for live-in servants (nor is there a decent fireplace, as the building was planned by someone unfamiliar with the cold seasons of the region).

The current governor of the city has enough private wealth to…

The Reanimator’s Home

Dyson's Dodecahedron

Torsus Keld tries to remain unnoticed among the townfolk, but it is hard when you are the only person in the area with a background involving a significant amount of adventuring, spellcasting and magical research.

The Reanimator's Home The Reanimator’s Home

Mr Keld has specialized in the animation of the inanimate. While this normally is reserved to small homonculi and similar, his recent experiments have been towards building golems and in that process he has been finding himself working with corpses – and the town is becoming concerned with the recent spate of grave robbings…

Torsus’ home is on a small plot of land with a shared well between it and the next house. What isn’t known to the locals is that there is a whole substructure to his little stone house, reached by stairs secretly hidden behind a wall in his bedroom. Within this space is his magical workshop, his alchemical room…

Esperimenti su Warhammer Quest, come procede

La mia idea di creare una conversione per giocare il vecchio Warhammerquest in stile Necromunda prosegue a che se sto seriamente meditando di prendere in considerazione Hive City Acheron visto che sta per uscire Armagedoon Shadow War. Probabilmente finirò per tenermi aperta la porta ad entrambe le strade.

Anche l’idea di avere un mod ad hoc per heroquest non mi dispiace totalmente sebbene significhi una maggior dose di lavoro.

Per ora mi sono documentato sul sempre affidabile Warhammer quest museum alla ricerca di idee per oggetti e tesori.

Le tiles sono un altra nota dolente perché non c’è nulla di veramente adatto fra il materiale disponibile online gratuitamente e con licenza per l’utilizzo. Alla fine penso che ripiegherò per materiale disponibile per Dark requiem. Sarebbe stato meglio the World Before, ma le tiles sono troppo fantasy per un gioco stile quarantesimo millennio.

Il lavoro come ingegnere purtroppo esige in questo periodo un pesante balzello sul mio tempo libero. Una volta assemblata la mia nuova squadra di sorelle del silenzio di potermi adoperare attivamente su questo nuovo progetto.

Lords of the Aldeiron Peaks

Another very nice small dungeon

Dyson's Dodecahedron

On the highest ridge of the Aldeiron Peaks, looking down over the city of Samlein is the hold of those who call themselves the “Lords of the Aldeiron Peaks”. Cut into the near vertical cliff faces are caves on each side of the narrow ridge that lead into the lair of three mighty drakes and below that the small headquarters of the three lords who ride them.

Lords of the Aldeiron Peaks Lords of the Aldeiron Peaks

Not actual nobles, these lords are successful adventurers who trained the drakes years ago and have settled here where they can watch over the city and the floodplains beyond.

This was drawn during the Mapvember challenge. On the fifth day of Mapvember, Miska gave to me… Hangar.  I almost decided to be funny and go with Hanger instead. But then realized I had nothing better with that one except maybe a game of hangman. The final map was definitely…

Secret Codices of the Emerald Hawk Society

Dyson's Dodecahedron

The Emerald Hawk Society is one of those organizations that coins itself a secret society, but that is far too proud of themselves to keep it a secret.

Secret Codices of the Emerald Hawk Society Secret Codices of the Emerald Hawk Society

The “secret” headquarters of the society is a heavy stone building that was once a “small” guard post for a much larger estate within the city walls. The society has converted it into an exclusive clubhouse with dark wood furnishings, displays of minor artifacts and other goods they have acquired over the years, and of course their secret library.

That is pretty hard to keep secret when it is about fifty feet square and takes up a whole windowless corner of the structure. The library is impressive mostly because it contains the full libraries of several deceased members of the society back when it was truly a secret society more interested in treasure hunting and secret…
