    Btw, Malus was pretty much solely responsible for saving naggaroth from a dark elf backed chaos invasion. The idea that there are people who know nothing about this guy acting like they do is sadly no surprise, but at least do your research before posting.

    He, a DARK ELF, saved Naggaroth from a DARK ELF backed chaos invasion.

    The comedy's writing itself.

    Right, because no other races have traitors in their ranks, sure sure. So...


    If you don't have anything productive to say, I'll call this here.
    The inferior races of this world will be crushed one by one, as our armies move from shore to shore, and hill to hill, and city to city-- and each of their cries will be as music to our ears, for we are the Druchii.

    "Traditionally, the Drachau of Hag Graef is also the general of the Witch King's armies."


    Saying that Malus has little importance for Druchii society is like saying Tyrion isn't important for Ulthuan in lore terms. They have the equivalent position in their respective cultures.

    So, please, as Seldkam says, do your research before making a fool of yourselves.

    The worst of this isn't Malus haters don't know the lore about him, the worst is they aren't even DE fans.

    No one gets to say who is and isn't a fan.

    This thread is about Malus's implementation. If you wish to discuss his lore importance it's the wrong place.
    Game 3 must have variety in its core races. Ogres, Chaos Dwarfs, Kislev, and Demons of Chaos in its full iconic, glorious, undivided glory.

    And that's why you can't make a thread talking about the possible mechanics of Malus. There's always people to say "BuT hE's GeNErIc" to ruin the topic.

    I don't think a Harkon insanity mechanic really fits him. With Harjkon it fits since his madness makes him act randomly and unpredictably, but this really isn't the case for Malus. While he and the demon want to get full control, they both have clear goals and desires, and as such a random boost modifier doesn't fit IMO. A kind of tracker like Hellebron has would be better, with one side being T'zarkan in control and the other being Malus in control. Unlike Hellebron though, this tracker would be central to the main campaign goal, with T'zarkan seizing control potentially being the end of the campaign.

    To be fair... You can't make a thread about any LLs without someone complaining and asking for/demanding something else instead. That is how this forum operates. Probably best to take it as banter or ignore it. For my part, I only tease.

    Malus's demon mechanic is unlikely to result in anything more than trait variations and dilemmas. Hellebron doesn't become younger/older and I don't expect Malus to go full demon either. That would kind of ruin the point of him anyway, right? Replacing him with T'zarkan would be a bit off.

    Oh, but you stated in the past that you hated the DE.

    I mean whether he is or isn't, his statement remains true.
