sorry .. I'm in a giddy mood today .. a mixture of too much caffeine and sugar already and a fantastic weekend of gaming

a whole day saturday GMing for a new WoD group ... we has terror and suspense and monsters and chases and stuff
And Sunday was full of 40K and escalation and fun and frolics ...

The new Chaos Greater possessed were bought out to play... they were pretty meh to be honest ... but they didn't have another 1500 points of screening stuff ... who knew they were characters !! .. not me !

Yeah, they're basically Lieutenants.

with the master of blood or whatever his name is to buff them, not a bad little death star .. but same as everything else without a gun, they need to get across a busy table ... if the screens melt .. they get walloped pretty swift

Thank you @Mad-Spy
I do apologize for my lack of tenacity with upkeep of my responsibilities here lately -- I shall endeavor to make sure no one has to take up my slack any more
@Thairne here in the US calendars are usually printed with the names of the holidays in red ink
Hence, a good and/or important day is called a "red-letter day"
("Uncle Joe, was that before or after they invented the wheel?" "Shaddup, you whippersnapper! And get offa mah lawn!")

Probably also goes back to the tradition of in the Bible printing the “words of God” in red
Aka where god/Jesus was literally speaking because “gotta set it apart as special”

@CrusherJoe , no problem. Sometimes RL gets in the way. I am not looking forward to the next couple of weeks on the Chaos side...

I just got the Chaos half of my Shadowspear box split last night if you need anything from the book
Holy crap are the new Oblits MASSIVE

@GenWilhelm, get lost you WAAC bastard :grinning:
There's no way that the intent isn't that you get an extra power from a Discipline you know.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 18 15:40
i'm not planning on using it, i've just seen it discussed in more than one place today
if you dont like it, we can wait until an FAQ or w/e
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 18 15:41
It's the current RAW, so I guess we need to implement it.
Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 18 15:42
yeah, the RAW is clear
idk what the fluff is for the actual tome itself, so i cant say whether it's intended or not
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 18 15:43
TOME OF MALCADOR
Malcador the Sigillite was the trusted aide of the Emperor himself.
The most potent human psyker of the time, the tome he penned on
the nature of reality enhances the mind of the reader.
PSYKER only. The bearer of the Tome of Malcador knows one
additional psychic power from the Librarius discipline (pg 202).
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 18 15:44
Yeah RAW that means he gets 1 librarius
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 18 15:44
I don't believe there's any way that it wasn't intended to give a Libby access to an extra power from the Discipline(s) he has access to. They just didn't have access to others at the time. I've sent it to the FAQ address.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 18 15:44
/me is glad that’s a SM relic not BA
The BA Libby relic is useless to primaris Libby’s of both flavors

Will Pattison
@GenWilhelm
Mar 18 15:50
from that brief snippet of lore, it's probably not intended
but it's GW, so who knows at this point /shrug
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 18 15:50
hence why I've sent it to the FAQ-meisters.

aaaaaaaaand chaos ruins things again.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 18 18:01
Nope. Already fixed that one.
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 18 18:03
Our hero!
Still, a matter of time bevore chaos ruins things again.
Because that's how chaos do.
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 18 18:05
Yeah, I'm expected them to ruin everything in a couple of weeks when Vigilus Ablaze comes out.
tekton
@tekton
Mar 18 18:37
New rules for “fan favorite” chaos legions...that sounds like it’s going to be a lot of work
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 18 18:38
Yes, I'm fully expecting it to be a massive PITA.
Nikola Beo
@UrsinePatriarch
Mar 18 19:13
I mean, it’s basically an overhaul of the last codex as a whole; I can’t imagine it’d be anything other than a PITA
Also, hello from the other side; it’s me, a complete rando, here to try to help
Mostly cause AoS ran out of things for me to do other than overhaul older catalogs
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 18 19:24
Welcome to my home @UrsinePatriarch lol
Dirk Bachert
@Thairne
Mar 18 19:31
overhaul? Last I heard it is just the codex + ca + changes from vigilus in a single book. To reduce the clutter from carrying around several tomes (if you arent smart enough to use BS that is :P)
That seems pretty fair... Vigilus ablaze will just go on like vigilus defiant and add new units and a few detachment specific things I'd wager
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 18 19:34
Yeah not complete overhaul
I’m actually wondering if the ePub will be stealth updated for free
If so that means GW is actually doing it right
People keep telling me they update the ePubs with chapapp/faq
Nikola Beo
@UrsinePatriarch
Mar 18 19:45

not an overhaul
changes to codex, additions of CA & Vigilus (which changes several units by quite a bit)
new detachments, 2 new sets of Warlord Traits and spells, etc

Not a complete overhaul, but this is more than just minor changes
Semantics, I suppose

I mean, they’re even changing all of the different faction rules from what they’ve implied
New Legion traits and whatnot.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 18 19:50
The chart implied that if you have old C:CSM, all you need to do to be completely up to date is vigilus
So obviously not a total overhaul
Nikola Beo
@UrsinePatriarch
Mar 18 19:52
But they’re also re-releasing the old codex with a bunch of new updates that they haven’t specifically said will be in Vigilus unless I missed something
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 18 19:59
No they said you only need the new book if don’t have old
They did that with tau previously too
So it’s nothing new
So yeh
Nikola Beo
@UrsinePatriarch
Mar 18 20:00
Alright, fair enough
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 22:15
Kind of surprised they're not doing the same to Codex Marines
with things like the Crimson Fist WD stuff
Iain Launchbury
@Mad-Spy
Mar 18 22:20
I don't think it'll be long before they do.
Jon Kissinger
@alphalas
Mar 18 22:26
^this
I wouldn’t be surprised if C:SM is updated in 2 weeks with Vanguard and CFists
Sorry 4 weeks
Earl Bishop
@DrTobogganMD
Mar 18 22:30
Then I get to hear bitching about SM AND chaos in my local groups :/
