GW: ADB AMA, AFAIK
ADB took to Reddit to answer your questions and now it’s time to question his answers.
Or I guess, just read through them? That also seems reasonable. The man seems like a very nice, reasonable fellow who just wanted to answer some questions on the internet without you coming along four or five (or however many days later it is when you read this) later and question everything he stayed up so late answering. And it was a marathon session, going into the wee hours of the morning, 4:09am to be specific.
You can read the collected AMA here and find everything, but there are a few fun facts to read through which we’ve collected below.
There were a few questions on events, but by and large, the ones that I kept finding myself swept away by were the ones where he talked about the stories that he’d want to see. Moments that might happen in the future, if you will. So let’s take a look through some of these folks:
I too want to see more about the Demiurg and the Cell-Kin. But, since he mentioned it, I suppose we have to either reset the Squat Clock or confirm both them and Half Life Three.
I think you know which one we’ll pick. Every time.
Next up we have this beautiful bit on what some moments with the Chaos and T’au might look like, as well as how Tyranids might get seen in the future:
And then of course what he prefers to write about.
It was gratifying to read this–I’ve not read all of the 40K Novels out there, I mean, who has time for that–but the ones that really grab me have always been the ones that are more about what it’s like to be in the world rather than everything that happens within it. I wish it were easier to capture that feel in games/campaigns, but I suppose that’s the advantage of a novel.
At any rate, that’s just a small taste of what ADB has to say (well, a medium taste, he’s verbose in the best way).
Until next time, remember that dying for the Emperor is everyone’s duty, it’s just a question of how and when.
