Default Ęsir

I don't have all the kinks worked out yet, probably never really will, so for now I will just put up a basic overview.

Name: Ęsir

Founding Chapter: Space Wolves (Don't freak out quite yet)

Founding: 13th founding

Chapter Master(High King): Merovin

Home world: Tżr

Fortress-Monastery: Įsgaršr/Asgard (don't know which to go with)

Main Colors: Black, dark purple and gold.

Specialty: Psykers and combating chaos space marines.

War Cry: For the Wolf King!

Numbers: 1100

Yes, I am aware that the Space Wolves have no recorded successor chapters but since there are no records of the chapters created during the dark founding I hoped it would resolve the issue.

I think its fine. i'm sorry but i don't believe that a whole leigon can be reduced to only 13 or so 100 wolf companies without there being mass suicide or successor chapters.

Well I was under the impression that new chapters were created from the geneseed reserves held on mars which would be shipped to a the home world of the fledgling chapter along with a small group from the founding chapter that would include its first commander of the chapter who would then set up the necessary facilities. IOW the numbers of the parent chapter were close to irrelevant.

I wasn't refuting the the possibility of your chapter- I think it's very plausible that a 13th Founding Chapter could be drawn from Russ's geneseed- I was marvelling at Tuck3r and his reasoning that the Heresy/Scouring couldn't have accounted for that many Space Wolves' lives

Eventually, I recently changed the name of the chapter and decided to go with a different feel so I need to reconcile that with my current fluff, maybe in a week or two I will have it done.

I was thinking about changing the name of the planet. What do you guys prefer, Midgard or Tyr?
