Skaven Request -- In ProgressEdit

I can’t draw for shit, but is there anyway you could draw some of my original clans? Or maybe just their leaders. Just ask for anything specific if you are interested.~GreySeerCriak~
Just to let you know, I'm more of a "paintfag" than a traditional drawfag (as in, on canvas). Also, I paint in a kind of neo-expressionism/post-impressionist style, so it would be somewhat abstracted. However, I'd bite if you could give me some descriptions, etc. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 22:24, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
Ok, in that case how about Arch Warlock Zrach of Clan Salvedge. He's basically Peter Lorre but as a cyborg skaven. Zrach comes off as more awkward and paranoid than actually malevolent. His armor is a deep navy blue, like the depths of the sea, with sickly bone like fur. His preferred weapon is a large mechanical warpstone staff with one blade at the tip perpendicular. Almost like a scythe. You can read about his clan on my user page but feel free to ask me anything else. I didn't want to overwhelm you with all five leaders at once and thanks for everything, from the page editing advice to listening to my ramblings.~GreySeerCriak~

RaHoWaEdit

You should really make it clear to folks that you're a gay brown loser when you write shit like some of what I'm seeing coming out of you. -- /pol/fag

If you checked the logs you would see that I'm not the OP. I didn't write the article, and I don't get enough fucks about RaHoWa to fix the article right now. However, this wiki isn't for /pol/ bs, it's for tabletop games, and I'm trying to keep the page clean. I've already asked a couple of experienced wikifags for help, so if you're just trying to troll to point out flaws in /tg/, just fucking wait please. If you (using multiple IPs because you're a grounded 12 year old) or your friends (trying to conduct a semi-organized raid) continue trolling, I, or a more experienced user, will get the admins involved, will block all of your IPs, and will editblock the page. Please stop, you're wasting all of our time, so far mostly mine, and it's going to get you nowhere. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 06:02, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
This is the kind of response that only makes them more determined, it's better to either ignore them or mock them, for example this extra special contributor took a screenshot of your userpage and uploaded it to the wiki because they're too stupid to figure out how the view history tab works, that's pretty hilarious. -- Triacom (talk) 06:56, 4 December 2018 (UTC)

TrollsEdit

Have you tried not constantly responding the way you are to every halfway vandal and troll whose edits you're undoing? You're literally just encouraging them at best. --72.89.208.22 15:14, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

I egged on the RaHoWa vandals unintentionally, sure, but I haven't responded to the Guardsmen trolls any more than Triacom has, and only mentioned trolling once. If it pleases you, I won't comment at all, but I haven't made a big deal of these shitheads. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 19:41, 22 December 2018 (UTC)

TwilightEdit

The removal is perfectly fine, Twilight is old meme now, but I think I might be able to put some of that to use for the vampire page. What do you say? --LGX-000 (talk) 19:15, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

If you want my help, I might be able to pitch in a bit, the Vampire page needs some reworking as is. I only removed it because it didn't fit the rest of the page in formatting, dead or not. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 19:21, 8 August 2019 (UTC)
Sure, just take the bit you clipped off the RAGE article and we'll see how to make it more presentable. --LGX-000 (talk) 21:32, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

EisenhornEdit

Ok maybe I'm not the most funny guy but still I don't see how it's "not helpful" when the article was either written by someone that only read the comments on the novels or was 14 when he last read it.

The entire article is largely both factually wrong and doesn't stress any of the completely ridiculous points of the setting which is what I was trying to do. I mean I'm not even exaggerating the hobo-inquisitor that's so low profile he has to be borrowing money from his his ex-GF to buy food:

"‘We should eat,’ Eleena said. ‘I’d go and get something... but...’ None of us had any money. Crezia pulled off her gloves and produced a wallet from her coat. ‘Am I the only person who thinks practically?’ she commented sourly. Eleena took a credit bar from Crezia and walked down through the trees into the town. She came back fifteen minutes later carrying a styrene box in which were four tall, sweet caffeits in disposable flasks, hot pastries in waxed paper wraps, a loaf stick and some vacuum-sealed sausage meats."

I can't make that shit up.

At that point the guy has like 200+ years of inquisitorial service, with numerous interrogators (some that are even full fledged inquisitors like Ravenor) and could in fact succeed as lord of the Ordo Xenos in the sector if he wanted to. And when his small party left (they actually loot his office thoroughly) but none of them though they might need money? When on the run? This is beyond ridiculous, even without the stupid trope "let's not call the cops".

Even in Xenos he goes after a cabal of heretics that has at least a fleet and hundreds of soldiers, have put an entire sector in disarray, to a meeting an hostile Xenos world. Alone. So of course the soldiers have a change of heart because if not the plot can't progress. (This is what bad writing looks like BTW. And yes Dan Abnett is better than the average BL writer... but he's still one of them).

Eisenhorn really rather use the warp than calling for backup, even from people he should trust 100% (the local Lord of the Ordo Xenos in particular), because ultimately he only trust himself and his own power, which is the thematic of the series. Eisenhorn is from day 1 on his way to radicalism/damnation largely due to his lone wolf character and the way he approaches his office (and is warned against it by Commodus Voke both his senior and a recurring character whose action are truly heroic). The tale is not one of heroism or coolness or badassery, it's one about how Inquisitors themselves become prey to chaos.

The result of this is I have lost track of how many inquisitors get killed (a dozen) because of him insisting they go on foot with a handful of guys into a situation that clearly need more than a vodka martini and where there is utterly no need for subterfuge... and how many times shit get done because someone else than him had the idea to bring Space Marines/Kasrkins/a spaceship with actual guns with them.

Scoring chicks? He score with only one (in the last book) but went full batman "I'm too responsible to have pussy on d/l"... Sean Connery would slap the living shit out of him.

As for "no digi weapons"... suuuure, he gets only saved 3 times by one (ok it's only 1 per book on average but still, cf. my previous comment on Abnett).

Also his actual kill count of "big" heretics is hilariously low while I'm pretty sure he kills personally at least 2 loyal inquisitors in cold blood and as much as half a dozen in self-defense (and a shitload of people just doing their jobs, guards, arbites, frater militants, pdf, mercenaries. But that's par for the course for a murder-hobo/Inquisitor).

Maybe the way I wrote all of this isn't funny enough but I still think it should be worked in the article instead of just deleted...

For starters I absolutely commend you coming to the talk section, and I'll be moving this over to the Eisenhorn Talk Page so it can be a point of discussion. That's an immediate sign of goodwill and makes it clear that this is not meant to troll.
To address your points, my issue ultimately isn't with the information (although I disagree with some of it - even in Xenos we see loyalty inquisitors who are absolutely awful, Puritan and Radical alike, and the argument that getting women, James Bond analogy or not, is a little silly to me), it's with the presentation. Generally putting contrasting points in the same section as the original information, especially in a short article and especially in unbroken paragraph, both looks really bad visually and confuses the reader. In the same vein, the language used (Eisenhorn is a total badass vs Eisenhorn is a fucking dimwit) comes out sounding contradictory to a third party.
If you would like to do the edit, my advice would be to either concisely place pieces of it as counterpoints at the end of relevant sections, with some minor grammatical changes in the original article, or to put them all in a new section. Either way, this both makes it look much neater and makes it easier for the information to be read and changed by other editors. Thanks much. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 18:18, 6 December 2019 (UTC)

Friendly Non-Board DiscussionsEdit

Namefags only please. Anons shouldn't need to address me, they can ask me as an Anon on the board (yes, I know that wouldn't work). :Please format with :colons for every new question or comment

Here's a good book if you haven't read it before: https://ufile.io/dzvd7 (link expires in 7 days. No I'm not trying to 3l33t1y pwn you :)Based Tzeentch (talk) 18:43, 7 March 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for shooting this my way. I read it a few years ago, and I remember enjoying both the setting (I'm a sucker for feudal worlds, although it is more tribal as I remember in this case) and the way it portrayed Chaos (Magnus did nothing wrong, Papa Nurgle loves you too). I'll prolly reread it. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 19:15, 7 March 2019 (UTC)

MidHammerEdit

Do you mind if i ask your advice? I think i have a couple of MidHammer Short stories in different stages of finished. Where do you think I should post them? Should i create new pages here, FF.net, or /tg/? Still not used to how the system works here. Thanks! --Wammnebu (talk) 02:35, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
If they are strictly drafts and don't go anywhere else, you should make a subpage under your namespace. You can do this with: [[Your Username/Title of Article]], with added layers of slashes for more detailed categorization. Look at my clutter article for an example of how to do this.
If you want to publish these articles as MidHammer material, since it isn't a particularly popular setting, I'd suggest you post them on /tg/ first.
Hope that helps. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 04:37, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
It helps a lot, i took a look at how you set up your page, and I more or less stole your format, User:Wammnebu/Midhammer_40k_Stories_and_rds. The sub-pages is really useful, i did not know you could do that! So thank you very much. I'll probably try to edit them down before I publish them.--Wammnebu (talk) 18:41, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
It's not my format, there are plenty of users who do it on the wiki, especially those who write fan rules. It helps keep the articles clean and frees up space indefinitely. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 20:32, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
