Is this the proper Old World?

Recommended Posts

This is the real Warhammer world, yes?

 

Actual lore, the Empire, elves and orcs and ogres and dwarves and everything called by their real names, not the new ones? 

 

Not the SpaceMarine-infested garbage of 'Age of Sigmar'?

 

Count me in.

 

I played the hell out of Warhammer Quest back in the 90's.

 

Female Bright Wizard and Waywatcher.

 

Wow.

Wow. 

You are absolutely right...this is not the new AoS garbage that GW is pawning off as Warhammer Fantasy.  Glad to see FFG sticking with "traditional" Warhammer.  I'm hoping this bodes well for Diskwars as well, another great but underated product.

It mentions a city and touches on lore like Ironbreakers.

 

There's no such things in the new setting; it's just constant battles between godly figures like some version of Valhalla turned up to 11.

 

This looks very strongly like old world Warhammer.

 

I hope, anyway!

Upon review, I can see where you can have that hope.

 

I just think we do not know enough about AoS to make any assumptions.

But that is just me, I guess.

 

I, too, hope this will be set in the Olde World's universe.

Correct spelling is quality communication.

 

If he meant the past Warhammer schema, he should have spelled it right.

As is, it simply meant the Euro-area of our Eastern Hemisphere or the western portion of the Eastern Hemisphere.

 

Then again, I have found a lot of Americans never spelled it right - ever.

I did not take that into account here.

Sorry.

Me, an engineer - that is very funny, extremely funny.

No Doc, I am not an applied math dude.

Why would they care about correct spelling?

They are worried about correct & accurate mathematical proofs and stuff like that.

 

Me, I was an historian.

Specifically, a military historian specializing in Mid-Twentieth Century World Conflict and Hellenistic Era Conflict.

I was also trained as a clinical neuro-psychologist.

Combined specialty worked well as a military historian.

 

As an historian I have seen the errors made over the centuries through errors in spelling, punctuation and the like.

This is why I am a "spelling nazi" according to some.

Errors of this ilk really screw up communication which can cause serious problems.

Even so in this day of disposable electronic communication.
