Fluff Masters Clan

Fluff: For those super-noobies out there fluff is basically all the background and stories of the various GW hobbies.

Who We Are: The fluff-know-it-alls of LO. Between us we can answer any question about fluff you may want to ask. At the moment we are mostly 40K but we invite fluff masters from other hobbies to join and help out their own group of questioners.

Our Purpose: Inspire the discussion of fluff as well as sharing with others our knowledge. We the fluff masters will have an answer for all those "stupid" fluff questions that usually take up a lot of space in the fluff section without really being of any purpose to anyone but the member asking the initial question. A fluff waste-disposal if you will.

Grephaun said:
Being a Fluff-Master is more than a fancy title, it’s an obligation to go forth in the world and preach to others the necessity of proper, well-researched fluff. It takes a certain dedication to become a Fluff-Master; if you don’t want to be a part of the clan and its mission to save the forum from all bad fluff, then why take the test? If you merely wish to test your knowledge, there's a Fluff Competition in the 40k Army Fluff subforum that could need new input. No test will make you a true Fluff-Master anyway; only those willing to help others improve their fluff and share altruistically of their accumulated wealth of fluffy knowledge are truly worthy of the title.
Current Members: Numberofthebeastxxx (me, president/founder/fluff-know-it-all), Grephaun (super-mod/fluff-know-it-all award winner), Xerxes (fluff-know-it-all/testmaster), and ze_poodle (fluff-know-it-all).

And those members that passed the test to be fellow fluff master know-it-all's:

Warmaster Phthisis (1st new member to pass the test)
Astral Claw
Lord Yossanrion
Dark Lioness (1st fantasy fluff master)
Impending Slaughter
gingerninja (2nd and current fantasy fluff master)
Da Mighty Camel
Ebon Hand
crimson tears
Adrian MalSeraph (currently has the award for most fluff tests taken)

My Position: As president/founder I would like all current and future members to know that this position was accepted with very much humility. I encourage all members to speak their mind and disagree with anything I say in a democratic fashion. I will by no means be running the club; I want everyone to contribute to all aspects of the clan. ^_^

Member To Do List:
0. Let me know if I need to add anything to my above statements.
1. Figure out the base requirements needed in order to admit new members to in.
2. Over-All Rules and Regulations need to be established.
3. Figure out if we can make ourselves more than 40k oriented, or if to do this we should wait till we bring in fluff masters from other hobbies. (I myself am not comfortable enough with my warhammer fantasy knowledge to answer questions but I can answer for other hobbies such as necromunda and anything to do with 40k of course.)
4. Make a really cool banner all members may display.
5. Answer any and all incoming questions/concerns from members and non-members.

Numbers 0-2, and 4 have been accomplished. We still need more fluffers who specialise in other games (such as fantasy). #5 never ends of course... 8)

i also request membership. i know more about fluff than the entire contents of my local shop, despite only being in the hobby for a year, and thats not said lightly.

i'll take any test, and accomplish any trial you ask of me sirs
icons? like the ones under names that say "Member" and "Senior Member" and such? oh, goodness, that'll go straight to my head :p though i do like the thought of being Matthias the Prophet and Fluffmaster (nice ring, eh?)
you know, i'm really more of a "blood of Chapter in a golden chalice" kinda person, but under the circumstances champagne is ok. and i could help out a fair amount with the FAQ about Horus, just tell me what to write and it shall be so, but try and tell me before the 16th, thats when i get back to prison..i mean school, and i wont have much time to spare then
i agree with Dark Lioness, it would be silly if one of us couldnt tell someone the basic difference between the races of Elves, or who Sigmar was (crazy, i know, but someone at my shop asked me, and hes been playing for like 13 years)

we should ask people Fantasy and 40k questions, i'll even take a new test altogether if i have to
