Checked all 16 pages. Time for a new one.

Yeah, sorry..Magic player.

Decent rules. Should be banned from even thinking about fluff.

Jealous your lame space elves, space aliens, space undead, space orcs, and space humans don't have a spiritual liege watching over them, and giving them the best, most fun, option-filled books currently being produced?

Magic player? No problem.

Imagine if someone nerfed planeswalkers so they weren't omniscient godlike beings anymore and made them average schmucks. Then that writer takes them and makes them into a nerfed clusterfuck of biomechanical politicians and by doing so made them the equivalent of a power rangers monster of the week villain.

And they fuck up the color pie again.

Matt Ward is a nexus of bad fluff design. All bad fluff decisions can be traced directly back to him.

Shadowrun Stick-n-shocks? Matt Ward. Neowalkers? Matt Ward. 4th edition forgotten realms? Matt Ward. A bad fluff singularity he is.

Makes me so mad.

As a Magic/Warhams player this makes double mad. All we need now is the 4rries to chant about how glorious and perfect D&D4e is and this thread will be over the legal limit of rage.

>> No.14551226

>>14551164

eh, planeswalkers as gods meant that you really had to up the power crazy to get anything that would kill them, and didn't really give them a real reason to dick around with non-planeswalkers besides GONNA FUCKING KILL THEM.

and the new Phryrexians aren't exactly a clusterfuck, and politics is much more interesting then LOL YAWG DOES ALL for shitty reasons.

... You haven't been complaeted yet, have you?

>> No.14551277

Matt Ward has never written about space marines abandoning the emprah for LOVE!!!
He's never written about ghostrider with a gushing plasmagun, wielding a throbbing demon sword, either.

Ward doesn't approve of putting handlebar moustaches on characters.

>> No.14551299

>>14551226
They should have at least let the planeswalkers keep some sort of immortality. like they can live forever as long as they aren't killed via violence. It meshes better with the game having a 20 point life system.

Basically I hate just about everything that Brady has done to the game and by extension Maro.

Not a lot of people realise that.

If anything, that makes it worse.

SUPERHUMANS, YES

BUT HUMAN

True. he/she is also LOL DRUGS.

And LOL TIT DEMONS.

And..... well, you get the point.

Given the rather pasionate nature for the zelots on either side of the order/chaos divide, shouldn't everyone be capable of love?

Love for everyone, loving everyone?

Not that I'm encouraging that sort of thing, but that just reads like 'only people of certain alignments can love'.

I still have a question about the Grey Knights.

Imperial Guard are not exactly pushovers, especially if said army just kicked copious amounts of Chaos Daemon ass. Then these Grey Knight guys come rolling in, swinging their dicks wildly, trying to purge them for doing their job.

Assuming the world is to important to Exterminatus...what happens when they lose? Because, just statistically, the Grey Knights had to have gotten their ass kicked by some IG or SoB or whatever at least once, probably multiple times.

Yet, it's never mentioned what they do on the occasion when some IG Commander Creeds-out, and kicks their sorry ass back to Titan. This is very confusing to me.

When grey knights lose, they bomb the place to pieces, no matter how important or special it is.
They'd bomb Macragge if there were demons running wild, and no one could stop them.

The codex talks about this 1982757 times, on average - unlike the old one, which didn't tell you even their organization.

>> No.14551539

well, there is but you don't get it free with the spark.

For example, Lilliana existed pre-Mending, and so did deals with the demons to maintain her youth.

Basically, Ward fleshed them out, added locations, skills, abilities, background that's not snips from one of Gav's bad black library books, erased everything Gav ever said about the inquisition, and folded them in with the grey knights.

Also, super-manly chaptermaster.

>> No.14551566

>>14551539
and I'm saying that's wrong.

The spark should give you SOMETHING other than lolnothing. and the ability to jump to other worlds with your lolnothingness.
