    She's goofy as all hell. But I am largely indifferent to her existence. I just think CA is bad at creating new lore. This was their first try, and it's pretty bad. I hope they get better.

    But seriously. Whoever thought Direfin up...jeez...take a creative writing class or something. Direfin is exactly what I'd expect from someone who doesn't do fantasy, to create for fantasy games/stories.

    WHFB is dead from a lore perspective. At least these additions are injecting life back into it, and expanding the universe. It fits with the wackyness of Warhammer and I wouldn’t mind other additions like this.

    OP is clearly joking.
    At least I hope so, he made me laugh!

    People seem to think WHFB was some form of high literature... It's always been goofy, cheesy and derivative and that's just how I like it. Cylostra fits perfectly and she is more original than a lot of generic GW characters.

    One thing is certain. CA has spend time and money to create this...character. By time I mean model, animations and voice because lore and backstory certainly weren't a priority. I still wonder how can Ursula suddenly become qualified to captain a crew just because she died in some accident, but hey, what do I know?

    They WILL NOT remove the creature no matter what we do. She CAN work in this setting not because she is fitting, but simply because the other LL from this particular faction are just as ridiculous/over the top.

    However, the fat lady makes me worried about something much more sinister. Remember the Rome 2 fiasco?
    Remember "not historically accurate, but historically authentic" nonsense?

    Is CA getting woke? Is this poorly thought out, kinda forced character one more step towards their idea of "diversifying" their games? Hope not.

    Go woke and go broke! Learn from EA!

    Fellheart, Darkblade, Ironhide, Goldtooth, Whitebeard, Grudgebearer, Ironfist, Ironhammer, Saltspite, ... I can go on.

    Yeah, the inclusion of an overweight female character surely means they are part of of the SJW conspiracy and they mean to take over the world.

    If you don’t like her mod her out. Seriously dude it’s really not as serious as you’re making it out to be in this post.

    Why remove it? Just change her model,lore and name and she fits perfectly in. The whole idea of summoning bretonnian knights as a pirate seems cool and a new type of magic.

    Except a true Brettonia would rather die than be a pirate

    Because Dge is probably taking some aspirine after modding this forum for the past weekend. Give him some time to recuperate.

    Cav on Command plus overall tankiness buff to her forces?

    I remember playing Dark Omen back in the day and nobody complained about all the OC characters in that game.
    I'm not sold on Clyostra, but an OC by CA does not bother me, just wish they'd come up with a better character. :/

    This forum must be rated 18+. Kids dont vote even in democracy. Find some purpose in your life and stop write evry day about cylostra.

    She reminds me of those disgusting One Piece characters, by the way **** anime just like the others. She must be removed to preserve the warhammer lore and to respect the loyal fans of the setting.
  • OmegaJakOmegaJak Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 71
    Anyone else finding it really, really weird that there's a ghost who surrounds herself with rotting corpses and massive rotting crabs and tries to slaughter the hated living and people are complaining that they don't fancy her? It's weird. It's just really puerile and weird.

    Why would it be weird? She has an awful model, bad lore and a bad name. The fact she is CA made could work fine if CA put some REAL work into it. Her mechanics seem rather cool.

    Tell me exactly how she is destroying the lore. Because I gurantee you can not make a logical argument about her somehow destroying the lore.

    If you don't know the lore, so no a warhammer fan, it is better to say nothing.

    I have just spoken to everyone and they all say they want her to stay. It's just you and at most a dozen others complaining.

    Also why do you want a good looking ghost? Do you spank off to this game? I bet you do and are scared of women.

    She is not present in the original setting or in any gw works, so she mustn't be in. Also bretonnian knights would never become ghost. In the end there was vangeist who was a far better and interesting character. Her lire simply sucks.

    Because she is really terrible, poor made and uninspiring.

    CA did put the REAL work into her. She's got great mechanics. Model, lore, and name really are secondary there.

    Is THAT what this is all about? The fact she's got great campaign/lord effects but people don't feel she deserves them?

    I don't know what makes you think I don't know the lore, I'm glad it's getting something new added to it now GW have killed off the old world. She's entirely in keeping with the weird silliness of Warhammer, your complaint seems to be primarily about her being unattractive. It's ridiculous.

    If Cylostra will remain, CA has to make skretch a legendary lord.

    I mean if this is CA putting real work in it, I would rather have them add existing LLs and add more features. More stuff that matters instead of Charlemagnes. Won't affect me either way, I'll have her modded as soon as possible and make sure she disappears from the ME map as soon as I start a playthrough.
