Oh, sheet... That's sad. I hope GW reconsider that, Ogor Mercenaries were unique.

Even if indeed, as far as we can tell, Ogors are not in the Mercenary business any more (because Ghur-savages-Gorkamorka) at least in their majority (notably, some Beastclaw Riders worked for Archaon, but that's not reflected in the rules), AOS is wide enough a setting to still have Maneaters equivalents. 

Also, in a recent (c. AOS2) short stories, there was a city with ORRUK MERCHANTS. So Maneaters are still totally possible in the lare scope of the Mortal Realms.

Yep. The sea along the Charwind Coast near Anvilgard is quite an interesting spot. There's plenty of others too. The Mordacious Sound has a heap of Idoneth

My army is a Fuethan enclave from the Moradacious sound, even featuring a tiger stripped Allopex :)

Not all Ogors are Maneaters/gutbusters.   There are Ogor freeguild, but they are not destruction.

Yeah as said above the setting have room for such combinaison and its great, but in terms of rules it kinda clash with the grand alliance system (like the Archaon serving Beastclaw Raiders I mentioned). 

But which book does the Freeguild Ogors come from, I don't remember ? One of those Mannfred Realmgates Wars stories ?

I can confirm it is NOT Hammerhal :)

 

The map will be highly detailed and will allow you to zoom in to see these kinds of elements yes

So what up with the  "Isle of  trysts"  is that going to be detailed? lol

If you want to play an Ogor mercenary, why not ask your GM.  It shouldn't be too difficult to adapt the system to suit.  That's the beauty of role-playing - anything is possible ( especially in 9 almost infinite Realms ).

I don't think we will be able to (or should be able to) play in the Realm Of Chaos - one would become instantly insane / mutated / destroyed in it (without the good godlike protections, that is :P)

Well, that's true enough, but at least one Stormcast Eternal has returned from the Realm of Chaos if memory serves.  Also, one of my most memorable role-playing experiences was playing Call of Cthuhlu which did involve going to another realm for the Grand Finale and did end up with my character going horribly insane and being deliberately left there for all eternity by the rest of the party.  I loved it.

I think post-'Plague Garden' there are now enterprising Azyrite tour operators organising weekend city breaks to the Realm of Chaos. You might need to check your insurance coverage but it's certainly not a guaranteed one-way trip...

Ohhh that's pretty cool (well not for your character anyway) ! And absolutely fitting the lovecraftian atmosphere Warhammer also shares...

I just hope the people of the Mortal Realms doesn't try to regularly  and casually enter the Realm of Chaos :P  ... stories like Gardus' should remain exceptional to mark the heroism and dangerousness of such a deed.

But as a GM I'd love to try to world-build a non Euclidian space to explore :D

I have to say that one of the things that fascinates me about the Realm of Chaos is that, paradoxically, the more one of the big 4 Chaos Gods controls a particular area of it, the more structured that area seems to become.  I think role-playing in the Realm of Chaos is best left for the individual GM to decide rather than having a game supplement, as that would, again paradoxically, only restrict the imagination.  I would say go for it! (You only have your sanity to lose :))

Since you are answering these questions, will we get info on Fulminax? dis currently imprisioned in the Great Parch I would like to know more about the nature and history of this Realmstone Elemental.

Maneaters are specifically stated to be the Mercenary Ogor faction.

I'm also interested to know where the current, AOS2-updated fluff, is about the Flamescar Plateau. 

In AOS1 Firestorm, the whole plateau belongs to the Agloraxi magocracy. 

In AOS2 Core Book, the region is fragmented and only the fallen (literally) city of Ahramentia is said to be Aglorxian territory. 

And yeah about Ogors, I was talking in terms of rules. There is currently no rules to represent ORDER Maneaters, even if they are there in the fluff.

 The point being that the RPG will (at first) only allows for ORDER characters...

I think that even in Firestorm the Agloraxi were an ancient, long-dead civilisation

Yes. But in Firestorm all the locations belonged to that long-dead empire.

In the Core Book (and other post AOS2 fictions, including the Malign Portents campaigns IIRC) its different. But that fluff was quite cool so I'd like to know what its the current situation, I hope the RPG answers that.

Hey Emmetation, I'm really excited for the Age of Sigmar RPG. I'm just wondering, will there be options for Wood Aelves and Sylvaneth specifically? I hope this doesn't seem like a repetition of earlier posts, but I've asked more specifically because I would like to know in advance. I'm really excited about how you said that the basic game would be below DnD 5th edition, because I assume something that simple gives a lot of room for storytelling and GM-ing. Another purely personal question, is there going to be a sourcebook dedicated to Ghyran? Again I hope I don't seem repetitive, but I would really like a treasure trove of information about Ghyran, my all time favorite realm. It would be great if it could include a Ghyran bestiary of sorts, or a few Prestige Classes (DnD 3rd Edition) themed centrally around Ghyranite rituals and fighting styles. My Wood Aelf ranger and Sylvaneth Druid are already waiting to be made, so if that is at all possible, I wood love to know. Excuse the pun, please.

Howdy,

We released a big update on our site here: http://cubicle7.co.uk/age-of-sigmar-cover-reveal-update/

This includes confirmation of Sylvaneth characters. The corebook will focus on Aqshy, but we will have information on Ghyran too. And each realm will be expanded on in future products.

When / if you do Chaos guys too, later in a future expansion, I hope you'll take a look at the Scourge Of Fate novel and that new Warcry game because it look narratively amazing and RPG-esque :D

Dear @Gaz Taylor, I think you should open an entire section for the upcoming AoS RPG (maybe not right now but close to the release date)  so that people can search for table, or at least can organise virtual tables.

Hello, sorry about delay but been a horrible few weeks in the real world and been distracted by it. Yes I think this is a good idea and something I want to discuss with Ben but not the best time for me at moment. I love the idea of being able to do some AOS RPG sessions at home as it would get some brownie points off my wife.  I'll get back to you ;)
