Dafistofmork thanks for understanding vaz, and sorry, didn't think about copywrite. silly me.

Vaz No worries mate - seriously, this (Heresy as a whole) is a past time, and I'd rather someone spent more time worrying about their future than a past time. This was just something which I hoped could be used to create a bit of a background (hopefullly a full blown Wiki =O) for Warhammer Fantasy, but it's a Long way off yet - and there are NO deadlines =D

Still as a bit of a rider though, I DO mind if I find out that there is posting of copyrighted materials - this does include Scans of the page in the Dwarf Army book. I have the book myself, so will happily draw the Runes out for you, if need be, but there is to be no copyrighted material, in articles, or the like. If I find out, expect it to be reported, and no credit for any articles YOU WRITE, regardless of how much effort went into it.

I'm sorry it seems so harsh, but as this is going to be quite a large thing, I'm not going to have those who have spent so much work going into it dragged through the dirt, or the site risking closure due to such materials. This goes for any and everyone. If you're unsure, I'm sure asking any of the Staff who deal with the area (like squeek, or Ancient), or any of the super staff (Jez, for example) will be able to confirm. if they aren't available, Holla, and I'll usually get an answer ASAP. Usually though, if you're unsure, it's usually a sure sign of no, so recreate it yourself ;)

thats essentialy a simplified version of what i was going to type up any way-i have got it(filed away some where), if you can provide the aprroximate issue number/date for it that will make it easier for me to find, and all will benefit(apart from my fingers).


edit- i can guarante that the next segment will be up by wednesday at the latest, thanks for your paitence everyone.

Vaz Well, the intention is to have articles that are currently up to date with 7th edition (or last known information), but there is no harm in any articles including any retconned work.

So if the current fluff states that the City of Middenheim is a city in the Empire, then it's a city in the Empire. If it's a city built on the Tunnels crafted by the dwarfs, then that's what it is. If in the past it was a Dwarf City, then put down a Paragraph/Heading stating that the city was previously a Dwarven city.

This is why we need an Almanac...

1999 - destruction of Mordheim (Imperial City) - is that what you're thinking of?

2325 (or something) - current year in Warhammer timeline

Middenheim is an Imperial city, but in previous versions of the fluff it was a Dwarf city. I believe currently the fluff is that the Dwarves tunnelled under the montain, then abandoned it, then the Empire built a city on top. This is called "having your dwarf-bread and eating it".

:wise old cyclops that spouts tales no-one now believes:

Dafistofmork Right, the introduction to the Dwarf tongue is up, and depending on how you view it is either 4 days early or 7 hours late( i had to scrafice revision time for you guys, so if any of you dislike it then i will unleash the giant green fist of fury upon your worthless hides. if you do like it great.). by the way, as i dont have access to a scaner, could someone provide a copy of the runic script(found on page 60 of the current dwarf army book). just post it here for the meanwhile(im sure Vaz wont mind). thanks.

edit- i have found two on google, but they are both in german. it only afffects a small part of it, and i can work around it, but i would prefer an english one please.

Red Orc Can we incorporate some of the info from earlier versions that has now been bypassed in some way? As you know, some of that stuff is dear to my heart - Grom the Paunch being killed in an assault on the Dwarf City of Middenheim, the Lizardmen attacking the Dwarfs of Karaz-A-Karak - or 'Caraz-A-Carak' as it was called then, that sort of stuff...

"Otto Kleinhund's Apocrypha to the Almanac of the Brotherhood of Speculative Antiquaries" or something... please...

Dafistofmork sorry, i lied. i am free to go this morning.

you are not going to belive this-just spent 1 hour writing up the introduction to Khazalid, went to google to do a little spellcheeck, and the internet crashses. and now i have to start all other again. i feel ike crying.
right, so now that i am sane again, this little set back is going to mean that it may ne a while(possibly monday/tuseday) before i can put up the first post. sorry.
