PostSubject: Dwarfs   Thu May 22, 2008 4:49 pm

I was wondering if anyone would want to work on a fluff for creating space dwarfs. I have a few norse names to use. if anyone wants to work on it with me let me know.

yes they were but I would like to get a generated story line thats worth a damn and submit it to GW. Maybe its futile. The only way to find out is to try. Thats why I would like to work collabritively with people to try and come up with a decent story line for where they came from how they have been missed all this time, and what their whole beliefs are. I would figure with sticking to the whole norse theme, and then work off of that.

Talk to the storytellers. Don't know who they are, but it ain't me.

What i figured was that we could try to come up with a story line that didnt involve the squats, use places where exploration is dangerous so most people wouldnt be there. WE could use the density of a planet along with the spacial anomalies to explain why they are short and why they havent been seen.

If your going along those lines make their homeworld a sector or w/e thats gravity is so dense that only extremely tough rock and physice can stand it. Then talk about their crafting and what not and maybe how they remember old technology that mankind's lost...etc, etc....that kinda jazz

Yea thats what I was going to do. I figured we could work it in that their technology was a like the the space marines, say they were the ones who taught the humans how to craft their specialty weapons. Stuff like that. So who would want to get together and sit down and come up with a story. Also we would need someone that can draw really good to get a great story board.

I wanna move this story away from squats. That way people can see them for a new race away from the old western looking squats. I would really like to involve as much norse mythology as possible into creating this race.

The real problem you are going to have with using Norse/Viking is that you are getting really really really close to Space Wolves. Since they are all about that goodness! (It's the reason I play them!)

Thats not a problem that could help add some dimensions to the game. I could tie them in with how they were hidden. Like I said I want make it so it seems that in the older days of humanity they learned their ways from these guys but after a split they have gone their seperate ways but have things incommon due to this.

I believe I would like to tie in the story Awaking Angantyr. It involves the wakening of a fallen member to receive a mighty sword. I believe this could be away to add more depth into a story.

My contribution is this: Seeing as the IG has Valhalla already.. I would suggest something possibly originating from there... HAve the Dwarfs come from the eye of terror too, immune to Chaos schtuff.
But then the orks eat them all!!!
Casuse that is whats gonna happen! More meat on the Bone!!! LOL the dwarves will never survive in 40K I will personally see to it that every last stuntie created or thought of is tracked down and slaughtered by Orks!!!

Have fun creating dinner for the Orks lol lol!

just because your my brother, your a complete friggin ass. Though I do have to say that the whole idea does seem viable. But then one would have to come up with how they have managed to survive in the eye without being seen and being consumed.

IMMUNE TO CHAOS!!!
No one goes into teh eye of terror unless they are:
1: Chaos
2: Space Wolves
3: Stupid/Ignorant (orks)

Largely unexplored if I'm not mistaken.
Still gonna get eaten by Orks!

Unless of course you wanted to play along with the Dwarfs are hidden in plain sight. ie they have been away from their homeworld so long that they are no longer stunty. They were inducted a long time ago as a Marine like chapter or IG and just look normal now... But the calling has begun bringing their brethren home into the eye of terror and thats why they are now popping up.
A few "stunties" still exist here and there but the main force of the short ones is in the Eye.

So the Dverga, would be a race that live in the eye of terror a.k.a. Auga Hręzla in norse, who are immune to the effects of Chaos. We could call those brethren that are coming home Iotna's as that is the term for the giants in norse. They could be reinstated in the civilization. Having the runes of calling have started calling them back.

Its amazing how quickly this forum died out. I guess that explains why we cant see dwarfs in space.
