Us know-it-all's over at the Fluff masters Clan (check us out in the clubs & clans section) have got it into our heads to write a sort of fluff FAQ.
So im calling all LO members to let us know (in this thread) what area of fluff you would like to know more about. Or what area most confuses you. We will provide you with as much facts and info we can.
Do you find yourself wanting to know more about the Invasion of Terra? :huh:
Are you a little confused as to what happened to each of the space marine Primarchs? :confused:
Or maybe you'd just like to know more history of the eldar? ^_^
Just tell us what area of 40k fluff your interested in knowing more about! :cool:
Tell Me Everything My Lord!!!! I Am Your Servant!!!!
I AM THE THE ANGEL'S WING!!! FEAR ME FOES OF SANGUINIUS!!!
A bit of info on the primarches would be useful. What I would like to know more about is the two sleeping C'tan.
"DICE FOR THE DICE GOD!"
And the almighty Dice God said to his followers "Thou shalt not speak ye words "anything but a one" For thou whoever'st speaketh this blasphemy will be cursed with thy rolls being of one".
While I'm certainly no fluff master, Necrons on the other hand are my bag baby :p . The two sleeping C'tan are the Void Dragon, and the Outsider. The Outsider currently resides in a Dyson sphere in the eastern part of the galaxy. Driven insane from eating his fellow C'tan during he war in heaven, he dosn't rest so much as wait to be released back onto the galaxy. The other C'tan is the Void Dragon asleep on mars. Orginaly worshiped as the machine god by the tech priests pre-emperor, it lays dormant and is thought to be the most powerful of the remaining C'tan. Of course this has spawned much speculation that the next campaign will be the awakening of the dragon and the division of the Tech Priests on Mars.Originally Posted by Zed
Ooh, ooh. What are the economic natures of the different races? I.e. Orks bartering through teef?
Oh, I'd LOVE to write a breifing on the economic systems of all of the 40k races, and on their social systems and systems of government and all of that. Well, if I pass the test and get into the fluff masters I'll write one up.
Orks do indeed barter with human races, often in return for not attacking vulnerable settlements.
In terms of a FAQ, we were thinking something along the lines of a guide for those new to 40k or who have questions that can't be answered without some deep research. So, come up with some questions and we'll write them down and compile a set of answers for you.

Hey, what is the general History of the Orks, and if they are too stupid to have a decent souciety, why can they use advanced weapony like tanks, etc?
As Captain Angelos of the Blood Angels said in Dawn of War "Do not confuse simple-minded with brainless or stupid. The orks are possesed of a singular cunning". The orks are not stupid in the sense that they are witless or such. They are simply extremely focused on war. It is their entire purpose. And they do have an organized society....it is based on the strong ruling over the weak. The strongest and largest orks are the ones that command the most respect and thus the most influence. Major warbosses such as Orkamungus (from DoW) or Gazghkull (sp?) from the Armageddon campaign command such a level of respect they can get warring factions of orks to ignore their differences and unite to fight another goal. As far as weaponry goes, they are sorta scavengers, with a basic knowledge of how to work machinery and get it running. They take what they can find mostly off the corpses of their opponents.
Don't forget a good dose of latent psyker power to help them to actually get the weapons to work. Also, orks have a bad habit of "fixing" their looted weapons (Zzap guns are normally the end result of far, far too much tinkering around with las-weaponry, for example).Originally Posted by Lord_Wallace
What I wouldn't mind seeing is a quick list of some of the 'problems' the different space marine gene-seeds have. Such as the Imperial Fists not having the ability to spit out acid-laced death from their mouths, for example.
"Some days you're the Mekboy building the kannon, the rest you're the grot being blown up by it."
- Quote attributed to Sorkrates, before his much mourned death due to ingestion of Hemsquig Juice.
"Dis iz my choppa, and herez me gun. Dat's for killin' and so'z dis one!"
- Bloodaxe Kommando Warchant
