Straight from the bowels of 4chan...

...excuse me, 1d4chan. The TG board. Y'know, the one that's actually constructive and, well, good.

Anyway, BrightHammer 40K is exactly what it looks like: a NobleBright version of Warhammer 40K.

Find it here: https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Setting:Brighthammer_40,000/2nd_edition


Tropes of the setting:

  • Adaptational Heroism: Most of the elements that made all of the factions of 40K evil one way or another (even humans' Up to Eleven version of the Spanish Inquisition) has been removed.
  • Adaptational Villainy: The Tau and their obsession with a Space Communist "Greater Good" mentality not only doesn't changes much from how it was in canon (the universe being Lighter and Softer now makes them a more crapsack option in comparison instead of a lesser one) but Depending on the Writer they have gone all the way to Flash Gordon-style mustache-twirling evil.

  • Lighter and Softer: Than the canon 40K universe, even being on the name.
  • Mirror Universe: To the canon 40K universe, with an emphasis in high adventure and less War is Hell.
  • Scary Dogmatic Aliens: Inverted with most of the other aliens in the setting, but the Tau remain Space Commies and without a World of Jerkass to provide contrast they are now definitely the villains of the setting.
  • Space Opera: The Lighter and Softer approach to the source material means a higher emphasis in this side of the setting.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: The God-Emperor of Mankind is still around, and so do many other canonically dead characters.
