Qwyksilver Posted December 18, 2012 Share Posted December 18, 2012 The Faction books that started off during 1.0 gave a ton of background history and reasons for why certain factions were where they are and who they warred against primarily. Additionally, if you can find the old Apocalypse boxed set, or any of the books in there, you will find a depth of history for a lot of Adon and specifically some of the armies in Savage North. Again, this is not easy to come by material any longer, but it is worth looking for if background is something you crave. There is some consistency within the various armies to make them internally cohesive, but worldwide, no there isn't. And I wouldn't expect it being based on differing nation-states and cultures. Adon is a generic high fantasy land with notable characters in it's history. It's really not a whole heck of a lot different from Toril, Krynn, Middle Earth, etc. The only big difference is that those other high fantasy lands have had a ton more writing done about them to make them more individualized over the past decades. I would have loved to see the Factions expanded on with the splat books like the first 5. Personally, I got into Warlord because I had bought a ton of minis for use in D&D, and then found out there were rules attached. Most of the armies I have bought are ones I can cross populate between RPG and tabletop use. For instance, I have very few Nefsokar models, except for a few I find interesting, but I have a ton of Necro, Mercs, Crusaders, Overlords and [Orcs, Elves & Dwarves] (both 2nd and Savage North). I have some Bloodstone and Darkreach because I can use them for RPG and love the style of them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
