Ilithyia conflict OOC
« on: July 09, 2011, 09:49:26 PM »
Hello. What you have just read, assuming you've read them in the right order, is the background fluff for the Autumn Conclave.

There is more to come of course - more hints as to the Corporal's true nature in the coming weeks.

Feel free to call me on any errors.
One thing that comes to mind is the Carthaxian Conclave thread initially lists "Pillarus Prime" as the home of the Carthax sector Conclave. I'm not sure whether that's supposed to have been retconned by "Tigguo Cobauc", or whether that's simply meant to be a less important Inquisitorial fortress.

You may also question my writing, if such a thing takes your fancy.
But if you do, cut me some slack - it turns out it's actually bloody difficult trying to write a believable saint, because a lot of the time it comes down to "Why weren't they declared a psyker/mutant/etc and shot on sight?". Particularly when you need actually need to leave that doubt in there, so players have got something to argue about on the day.

To answer your question about Tigguo Cobauc - in reality it's an old name for Nottingham (meaning Place of Caves), but in-universe I figure it's another Inquisitorial fortress somewhere in the Carthax sector.
I like to remember things my own way... Not necessarily the way they happened.

I'm not sure that Saints need to be "believable" - the defining power of an Imperial Saint appears to be that everyone who sees them believes that they are a Saint. Abnett uses that in the Ghosts books, to good effect. However, you've written one, and there's no harm in going for the believable :)

@Kaled: I knew it was an old name for Nottingham, but it occurred to me that the Spring Conclave election had been on Tigguo Cobauc, and logic suggested that the election would be at the main conclave fortress - evidently mistakenly.

@DapperAnarchist: Interesting point (and one that will crop up later). But the reader doesn't have the same instinctual belief, so events have to make sense in some fashion or other.

@ Lacerto: Nice.

It's not quite what she's going to look like, but one can certainly imagine that few illuminations of saints are actually representative, given that they're both being tweaked for "saintliness" and that the artists probably haven't seen their subject.

... sorry about the delays. I'm down to borrowing computers at the moment, so the data files for Ilithyia are going to take a bit longer than was originally intended. Hopefully, they'll be available by the end of the month.

(You may also note that the III has been dropped from the title - a mistake on my part, I was working from old notes.)
