  1. Hunters have too many 2" melee zones

    The disparity between the Sun Father and Solthecius isn't as great as you'd think...
  2. Dead Players **Fluff Spoilers**

    Probably a combination of both. I imagine the swarm explodes into a mass of biting and scratching fury, only for the live rats to skulk back when Graves calls them.
  3. Scholar's Guild Summer Challenge

    Sure, go for it. I don't see why we wouldn't have a Carpenter's Guild of some description or another.
  4. Dead Players **Fluff Spoilers**

    At time of writing, this is correct. For the sake of completeness however, several Dirge and Mainsprings have also died / been destroyed, and technically Velocity was destroyed in season two, before Pin Vice rebuilt her.
  5. [spoilers] Season 3 Brewers Fluff

    I like '#saveamber'. Don't worry, I'm sure it's not the last we've seen of her.
  6. Theron's Backstory

    Thanks guys. For those Athena fans out there, don't worry - I'm sure it's not the last we've seen of her...
  7. We'll be learning a little more about the standard in Part V. If you're looking to keep canon, Theron's coat is Red, and his trousers white, like an old English Red Coat. Hope that helps!
  8. Guild Ball Violence Levels?

    In the first Season Rulebook there was a short section called 'Of Life and Death in Guild Ball', which might be missing from the PDF sheets (I'd need to check). In this the Physician's Guild were discussed, and their mysterious and wonderful craft - crucially, how it may be that they are able to heal players who have been injured on the field. One of the vital things that they are capable of is 'magically assisted healing', which is never directly challenged by any of the other Guilds. It's one of the very few instances of magic in our world, and is definitely a secretive (and undefined) science, the treatments for which are as unlike the medical science of our world as Alchemy is to Chemistry. With regards to the Game Rules, player deaths on the field are definitely frowned upon, and extremely rare instances. Any time one occurs, it is a significant event, which is not commonplace in the slightest.
  9. Theron's Backstory

    To be fair, Compound has never been a particularly nice character...
  10. Theron's Backstory

    Really looking forward to discussing this series with you guys. It was a blast to write, and a story arc that I've always wanted to explore in more detail.
  11. Second wave - mascot +

    Actually, I think I said 'at some point in the future'... But I am really getting a kick out of seeing how much you guys are looking forward to seeing the new book, and loving the speculation. Keep going!
  12. Getting to the Fluff

    Don't worry. The Butcher's Civil War takes place during the events of the Season Three story arc, meaning Ox's release and the events behind it are certainly covered..
  13. A bit of a cold shower wouldn't you say? (S3)

    ..and her name is Skatha
  14. Stating for the Record

    It's okay, I didn't take offence at all - far from it, this is currently my favourite thread on the forums. I'm really enjoying reading how many of you guys are getting into the Civil War, and I'm sure that you'll like the new piece next week.
