What? I just told them it was for the greater good, and they let me kill them.

Imagine it, you and your sibling hanging out, playing a game, and your sibling continuely telling you your playing it wrong, that you have no idea what your doing and they know better. Then you shout at them, and storm out of there. Now imagine if you and your sibling had power armour, demi-god like abilities and the greatest combat weapons created by Man........I wonder if Guilliman's nose was continuely broken from telling his brothers they were fighting wrong?

At the end of the day, we know who our true brothers are. We watch the halls of Russ, and remember our days of glory whilst persuing ever greater ones.
We are the Sons of Russ, for the All-Father and the Wolf King. From now, until the End Days and the Wolftime. We play by our rules, and noone elses.

Yep. Kanazuchi has done some general ones here. Renik has done some ones as well, most of them character specific though IIRC.

I also made this one for them before Renik threw his hat into the ring as Junior Minister for Propaganda.

Let me get some other projects wrapped up (or running smoothly) and I'll see when I can get a new AoD running. As long as the Nestir's Fate AoD is running, though, a new one won't start.

Since you say it was ages ago I'm inclined to believe it was Luku you sent the PM to, alas his computer ventured into the darkest places of the Warp and never was heard of again, the same happening to his internet so he was out of the loop for quite a while, so to say.

Well, my hope is that once round two starts I can delegate a lot more work, getting the Nestir AoD wrapped up faster.
I am not willing to compromise on the story quality to make things go faster though, as I feel we have a rather good story going.

What we could look into is a roll-call for round two.
I believe a few people in the AoD may no longer be interested or even on the B&C, but I cant confirm that.
If a roll call leaves some characters unmanned, we could look at getting new people into the AoD to fill in the abandoned characters. – If everyone agrees.

As for the PM from ages ago, I checked my records of received and sent PMs just in case and I did not receive this one.
I have received a few other requests for people to join in however, but these requests have all been answered and politely declined.

I must again apologise for the Nestir V AoD going at a slow pace.
I was supposed to get the end of Battle 5 up last week, but alas a trip to the dentist where they pulled half my face of (ok, they didn't really), left me groggy for days. Couple that with a lot of paperwork due to my job loss (due to the economic crisis) and you have the recipe for yet another RL delay.
Still, Im going to the library to work on the AoD all day tomorrow and hopefully that means Battle 5 and Round 1 will finally be concluded.

I wouldn't want you to speed up the story of Nestir at all Graymantle, I love reading them. I can understand how difficult it would be when the Real World comes up and bites you in the rear :) I can be patient enough for the next war :D

i am about and free for while but if we lose to many people from them moving on i might think it be best to let it be as prob easier just to let it die and mods start up the mod arena of death

I really REAALLY like the stories in the AoD but.. where are the first battles? The earliest one I found was round 1 battle 05..
Is there a compilation of all the battles somewhere? I've tried search-fu but it only gives me errors even if i just type nestir V :( .. I would REALLY like to read the fluff as a whole instead of the pits and pieces I could find.

Just wondering, who writes all the fluff for the AoD - specifically the 1v1 fights? Is it the mods or the players?

Traditionally it has been the staff members since it's we who have been running them. However the Nestir V one is a bit special since it's been running with a Frater in the lead and thus it's pretty much anyone who want's to are allowed to. Proven they are able to convince Greymantle (he's in change at the moment) that they're up for it. :D
