** Because people are hypocritical jerks who arbitrarily write off whole classifications of people from their positive philosophies, even when those philosophies do not support such, ''especially'' in a CrapsackWorld like this setting. The modern idea of chivalry goes back to the 1200s, but lets be honest here, even though it officially applied to peasants as well as the nobility very few knights actually practiced what they preached.



* Is it ever explained how the orcs reproduce? I mean we know how the [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 orks]] make more of themselves (spores) but we never hear of greenskin females and these orcs don't seem like the rapey type. On a similar subject does anyone mention ogre women because we hear about ogre children on several occasions?

* Did the Chaos gods always feed on emotion in Fantasy, or is that bleed over from 40k? I can remember there being some stuff about them being primordial and such, but I don't have access to the older editions now and it's been a while.

*** Nah, the Empire has witchhunting down pat. They're even pretty sure what their main weapons are - instilling fear and burning people.

*** NOBODY expects the Empire Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Grand Theogonist..... Our *four*...no... *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise... I'll come in again.

*** Perhaps Nagash or Archaon can become the Incarnation of Chaos Undivided and save existence from this vicious cycle, but ı am not betting on it.

** Chaos Gods are conceptions created and made real by the psyche of living. Khorne is honor. Tzeentch is hope. Nurgle is acceptance. Slaanesh is love. These are their basest forms. When they destroyed the world, they returned back to their base forms, and purged themselves of their own corruption. Homever, they couldn't exist without life itself, so they kept some of the living alive. Then, life started to multiply once more in the realms and their rampant emotions in the end caused them to turn back to their malicious selves, driving them to destroy the living. This troper believes that they destroyed the world once, and Old Ones were the survivors of that world. Then they decided to try to neutralize Chaos, while creating new races to fix the damn world. They failed. Then the Warhammer world happened. Same shit. Suddenly Age of Sigmar, with new gods, former mortals who were the survivors of the World-That-Was roaming around with the power to rival the Old Ones, who try to neutralize Chaos. Sounds familliar? Good, this means you were paying attention, and it also means you can guess what is going to happen. And it is going to happen. Forever.

** The current Emperor is the Count of Reikland, and bears its Runefang, but that doesn't change the fact that Reikland is simply a province.

* So why does ''Chaos'' want to destroy the world? For that matter, why do the chaos gods show such obvious, long term favoritism? It would seem more chaotic to keep the world preserved but not let any single force get too much of an advantage to keep change on it less predictable, more chaotic. In fact, no form of "worship" the receive, be it make sure someone is always bleeding, be as hedonistic as possible, spread lots of pathogens or mutate constantly are conductive to destroying the the world. Miserable existences but theoretically sustainable ones.
