anyone have any decent fanfics for this series? Trying to find them in The Pit is an exercise in futility due to its crappy search function.
From the Warhammer40000 Fanfic recommendations page:
Both by the same author, and both pretty good reads from what I remember of them.
Also, Poker Night is a pretty fun read with a hilarious twist ending.
ta muchly. If these are CC focused fics should they not be moved (or at least copied into) a fanfic recs page for this book series?
Here's my idea of a character list.
Also, is it possible to make subfolders?
That's a "no" on the subfolders, unfortunately.
The overall structure looks good to me. I've tweaked a few of your entries for grammar and fleshed out some of the bios. I'm planning on rereading the series again over the summer, so I should be able to find some more tropes for some of the more noteworthy and regular characters.
We can go as far as to write the thing from Vail's standpoint. The entire thing is filled with footnotes already.
Well, my grammar is really lousy because I am not a native and I do not proofread this, seeing as it's a draft.
Anyone think adding a character page might be a good idea?
Most certainly it would, there's just enough characters to make it interesting, any volunteers?
RE: last set of edits: Wow, that was rude...that's what edit reasons are for, especially when it comes to large moves and culls; if you'd said they were moved in the first place, this wouldn't have happened. Still, some of those need to stay on the main page since they apply to multiple characters; generally speaking, single character-specific tropes belong on character pages while tropes that cover multiple characters are better left on the main page for the sake of not repeating a trope. I'll work on this tonight if/when I get time.
Aaaaaaaaand my "This work now has a character page in desperate need of improvement" note in the article is where the frak, exactly?
Effing brilliant. I love it when my information just gets eaten.
(EDIT: This is why I should read the whole discussion before posting.)
That said, good job on creating the new page. It's been needed for a while. I'll see if I can't add a blurb or two for a few of the other characters myself.
I hate to nitpick but: Willbyr, is there a particular reason you're double-bulleting everything?

IT should be noted the latest Imperial Guard novel 'Dead Men walking' has a continutity nod towards "Caves of ice" on page 84 I believe. With a commisioner there recalling Cains (Heavily redacted) after action report on the battle at S Imia orichlae.
There has to be an explosion trope that covers the scale of the promethium detonation in Caves of Ice. Any ideas on what it might be?
EDIT: And a second one.
There's a line been added under Forgone Conclusion that states Jurgen survives past Cain's death from old age. What is the source of this information, please?
That's not correct- Cain specifically mentions that Jurgen's "long gone" by the time he's writing his memoirs. Can't remember what book that's from, either. It was either Last Stand or Traitor's Hand, I think.
Pulling from the old archived discussion:
Basically, it's a Continuity Snarl. I personally reconcile it by assuming that Cain was somehow separated from Jurgen for a long period of time without him being dead, although possibly he had been presumed dead.
It's worth noting, though, that from Amberley's comments in...For the Emperor, IIRC (one of the earlier books anyway), it seems that Cain's memoirs aren't written down in anything even resembling chronological order. Our favourite Inquisitor is cherrypicking stories from the Archive, editing them into a readable format (footnotes ahoy!) and publishing them depending on what she feels like at the time. It's entirely possible that what would become For the Emperor may have been one of the last things Cain ever wrote in his long life.
That's exactly what's happening. It's very possible that at the time what would become For the Emperor was written by Cain, Jurgen was dead.
Under Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu, someone mentions that there's an Imperial Guard drinking song about him kicking Khorne in the balls.
Er. Where can I find this. Sauce plz.

How well does it match the trope?
