Hey - my name's Mike, I'm new here.
I've been trying to create a background for a Chaos army that I'm developing. I like the idea of them being rebels against Chaos who broke away and formed a rival group or faction that aren't really evil any more, since they saw how counter-productive that was (with all the in-fighting and the deaths and stuff). There are two areas I'm still thinking about right now - first, how would this come about, and second, what troops would be in that army?
I had a few ideas -
-they could have gotten lost in a forest while invading in Storm of Chaos, and as they became more distant from the Wastes, the taint of Chaos faded from their minds, leaving them in a bizarre existential predicament
-there was some kind of confrontation between the leader of a small force and the commander of the army, and they fled from his retribution
-a leading intellectual chaos warrior wrote a detailed theorem as to why people should work together for mutual gain and prosperity, and they rebelled in a Kropotkin-esque way.
What do you guys think?
Hello, and welcome to the forums! Let's see if I can be of some use to you...
Maybe it's the detailed theorem that's getting me. If he was more of an active demagogue or something, preaching his message to people rather than relying on them reading his theorem... I can see this working.
Some good ideas there, hope my opinions on the matter are of some use!
