Hi guys,

I'm writing up some fluff pre-tournament. Can anyone answer any of the following questions:

1. Is there any known family for Finubar?
2. Are the commanders of the Glittering Tower/Emerald Gate named anywhere?
3. What are the heraldic colours of Lothern?

That's it for now...

Finubar has two sons that are both presumed dead (see dreadfleet), and a daugther that is in the process of being rescued by Tyrion and Teclis from Mannfred Von Carstein(thanks to the worst fluff writing Phill Kelly ever did). The commanders of Lothern is not known besides Korhil and Finubar himself. The colours of Lothern are the same as those of the seaguard, red (the seadragon on the crest), white and blue. The colours of Eatainne are red and yellow.

Perfect, thanks - looks like I'm not going against any fluff yet. I think I need to demote the 'power level' of my characters - I was just taking what I could find from named places. Any ideas if there's a more detailed/fan map of Ulthuan/Lothern out there anywhere?

But a tad on the expensive side for what you get I think.

I watched a youtube video of someone 'unbooking' it - whilst it looks nice enough, it's pretty repetitive - archer and spearman with slightly different colour schemes throughout...if I find it cheap anywhere I'll snap it up but I'm not gonna pay much for what is a fairly unimaginative book IMO.

That's kinda the point of it, though - it shows the archers and spearmen of each of the kingdoms, the gates, and a couple of the overseas holdings, as well as the various elite units (including the distinction between WLs that directly protect Finubar - who wear Finubar's colours, being the white and blue we saw them with in 6E and 7E - and the others that wear the Chracian red).

There is a lot of good fluff in there - there may not be a lot of text in there at first glance, but they made good use of what they did put in, and there's stuff in there I haven't seen anywhere else on Ulthuan history and culture beyond just pretty pictures. I would agree that it is a lot of money for a relatively small amount of book, though, even by GWAus standards.

There are also lots of new runes and runes for gods. It is expensive, but for once I don't regret I bought it. It'll probably never come out of fashion. :mrgreen:

Lothern itself is the capital of Eataine. Eataine uses red and gold for colors, while Lothern itself uses Sea Guard colors. Now I imagine from all the poorly written BL books that Lothern is a Game of Thrones like setting only 1000000000x cleaner and prettier. So imagine many manors within the city are occupied by nobles and lords from other lands, so don't be surprised if colors from other provinces of Ulthuan show up in the city. It's the gateway to the outside world and the other races, any elf interested in a decent profit or collecting antiquities will be there.

A little late to the party, but since it was mentioned that Lothern's emblem is the sea dragon, Eataine's is the phoenix - which is why Eataine's colours are red and yellow.
