"Cavan scott is a veteran, comics and novels author. He was hired by GW to do the Warhammer adventure novels (warhammer for kids)."

A guy who signed to do an idiotic piece of work genially surprised that there are idiots out there who take their things too seriously.   Oh an welcome to the modern society where delinquent degenerates think they can do anything they want because "they have freedoms" including denying the freedom of speech to their opponents.

That's upsetting.

Not engaging in harassment and threats is a low bar, and I thought we were better than that.

Is there anything we can do to support Mr. Scott? (Note that I keep a ten foot pole which I use for not touching Twitter.)

"Can't say I'm surprised, but I am disappointed. The fandom is a poisonous swamp. Every fandom is a poisonous swamp. Because that's what "fan" means now, not "someone who likes something" but "someone who has constructed their entire identity around that thing." When the thing changes, instead of going "welp, I guess I don't like new thing, time to stop giving it my attention and money" they lash out because they feel like their identity is being attacked. But they're the ones who were damn fool enough to base it around someone else's property in the first place. If you build a fort on your neighbour's lawn, don't be surprised when he takes it down."

Someone posted that in the comments, completely agree with this. Let's also try to not start the generational/ kids these days/ modern society thing here, that gets vicious and won't be any better than politalk.

I shot him a support tweet on Twitter.

Yeah, sure. His own fault and the books are "idiotic".

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.
- Sister Katherine Elysius,
Daughter of the Emperor (later Imperial Saint Katherine)

I'm not interested in the books therefor i'm just not paying them much attention. I'm sure there will be people who will find enjoyment in the stories. I hold no ill will towards the author who is writing the stories.

 

Seems that kind of thinking is lost on people.

Why does this topic need to exist here? I get bringing attention to the horrendous acts against the author, but at some point this thread will devolve into something far more ugly, polarizing, and vicious.

I don’t think there is anything to gain by leaving it open and I would put forward to the mods a humble request to close it.

There’s nothing ‘power armor’ related to discuss. The OP posted a story, and asked if anyone is surprised by it.

People will be surprised or they won’t be, and people will support the author or support the disgusting actions against the author. We are all experienced enough to know where that leads.

I fail to see how this is a positive discussion to have here.

Edit: very well, I’ll see myself from the topic. God have mercy and all that 😉

I am not surprised. Some people take forms of entertainment far too seriously. Threatening anyone for something to trivial is sadly the state of things in the world today.

There's a subset in every fan group that are like this and I'm sure it's not specific to ours after a guy I did a course with who was a fellow Star Trek fan also turned out to be quite a racist who apparently sent very cranky letters in to Paramount about the casting of Voyager. But most people I know in our hobby are far better than this regardless of their opinion of these books.

I though those books were a stupid terrible idea that devalues 40k, but threating the author is a no-go.

 

If someone does not like it don´t support it and express it to GW on their channels and that´s about it. There is always those who go mental about changes, nothing new. Saying that this only happens on the 40k fanbase is a flat out lie

I feel sorry for people attacking him like that, it's GW way of getting a new generation of kids into the world of warhammer and slowly bring them into it. I support Cavan fully in his new work and my son will most likely want to read it as he already paints his ultramarines army. I see it as a good way to reach new possible gamers into warhammer. Just no need for the death posts at all in anyway.

I'm not a proponent of the books, but this is stupid and ridiculous

Every fandom has a toxic component, some worse than others..

I figured ours was a little better than say Overwatch or Star Wars... guess I was wrong.

People should never harass authors for simply writing something that changes an IP they like in a way they dislike. I do not like the childrens books, and I am not shy of saying so, but abusing someone in this way is inexcusable.

Sadly, the internet is a cesspool. I cant imagine many of these idiots would say the same to Mr. Scott if they had to say it to his face. Few things are more cowardly than harassing people from the safety of a keyboard.

1. I wish I were surprised by this, but I'm not.
2. This is pretty much the extreme end game of how every other post on Warhammer forums get derailed by people complaining about XYZ changes obsessively.
3. This guarantees I'm buying a copy for each of my young relatives for when they're old enough to read it.

This is quite depressing... like people that offended Chris Pratt for the role of Star-Lord during Avengers: Infinity War...

Attacking an employee for a decision made by his boss is the most stupid thing ever...

Dear gods, the stupidity of some people on this planet is astounding. Time and time again, we demonstrate that our lives are so easy that we must find the most asinine things possible to be outraged about. May the desecrated sanctity of one’s chosen fictional universe be the worst thing that ever happens to us.

Seriously,I don't understand issuing death threats, especially for something so trivial. I generally am not keen on the idea of these books, so I just won't buy them, I'd rather introduce my nephews or nieces to the hobby by showing them the coil models.
