My thanks go out to those involved in the creation of this article.  It is clearly one of the best productions to come online in w-e to date.

I'm stunned!

Absolutely fantastic! (I have a wiz in there! I'm so proud!  :happy: )

I can't believe it looks so good!  :ph34r: Stunning, really!

But it seems some of the pictures are displacing some of the text, pushing it out in the margin. Perhaps it's Internet Explorer (wouldn't be the first time... ) or perhaps there is an enter missing or similar causes.

Well done!  :::cheers:::  :eusa_clap:

My appologies, it does seem to have some display problems in IE. I'll get to fixing that ASAP.

This is just what the doctor ordered! I know little to nothing about Empire Magic and how best to employ it!

Let the education commence!

This is fantastic! Very nicely done, and I like how the unique wizard pics help add so much character to this article. To all who contributed;  :::cheers:::

A particular highlight of the original thread was Rufas explaining why Midaski always pays his tab! Classic stuff.

Watch discovery channel and hope that they show some baboons?

:engel:

If I'm crossing the line, Shadowlord, please send me a PM.

Terrific work, Perambulator - that looks sooo pretty.

Terrific work, Perambulator - that looks sooo pretty.

You can attribute the prettiness to Powder Monkey's fantastic image manipulation and Calvin's compiling it to fit the War Room. I just played with the text. But thank you all the same.  :::cheers:::

Looks great so far. 

There have been a lot of contributions from a lot of members on here.  It was in reply to the virtually endless questions about which lore to take, many months ago that it was decided to collate all of the collective thoughts and uses from everyone.

It makes a change for me to contribute something useful from all my thousands of posts on here.  :)

We will have the best magic guide around on the internet :)  I couldn't and probably wouldn't have done it without help from everyone else.

I really enjoyed it, it's very good work indeed.

I was particularly interested in the section on Warrior Priests' Prayers, as I didn't feel that I had been using them very well, and now I know why.  It was also very enlightening to read about the tactical uses of some of the lores which I have Wizard models for, but never use.

I congratulate everyone who was involved with putting this article together.

Me being someone who really hasn't used magic since 6th edition, I'm very appreciative of this article and everyone who put their effort and advice into it.  I particularly like the bound items and Warrior Priest prayers sections.   :-D

Yeah, I liked those, too! I wonder who wrote them...?  :engel:


Calvin: Thanks a bunch for uploading! It sure feels good to see this thing officially published and having contributed in it, too! A gargantuan endeavour finally finished. Or is it?? (http://www.warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=19297.msg310176#msg310176)


Everyone: Thanks for the praise regarding the pictures, that's dozens of hours of work right there, including figuring out again how the hell Photoshop actually works, and also ripping pictures from the internet without permission and stuff. Nah, only joking, of course I own every image I used... really!

And just in case you need an excuse to read it all again, there's a little Powder Monkey hidden somewhere in the pictures. Medals for the first five people to PM me its location!  :icon_biggrin:  On second thought, we had that thing before, didn't we?  :roll:



Your hidden PM

More accurately, we got permission to use those images... :engel:

Just in case you haven't been typecast enough.
