I know the Claws is still a little way off having all its tiers/decent blow up date etc but there are a few Circle players around again and hopefully the new books may also increase the amount of Baronies characters played but given that if a member of the Circle, you cannot join professional guilds, do you think it would be possible to create Claws statuses?

Just an idea, but might not be possible. Thought it might make more players join guild if it was possible.

I'm not sure it needs it tbh mate - there's already the Circle benefits which are pretty strong, and both Ritter Ghrayve & Ritter Drachyul are already statuses. Possibly statuses for Ritter Dhambyer & Ritter Experditus as they were always a little unclear, maybe even Klosterkinde - but broadly people do their own non standardly.

I think he might have meant statuses like Knight of the Land?

Either way, let's get tier three back first tongue.gif

Yes, I was just trying to think what they might be eg. were you to have a status which focussed on supernatural power users of the Claws - well that's the Circle, militants already have the Ritter orders, possibly you could have statuses based on Ancestor, or maybe which of the Baronies you come from, but I think ones based on Character Class - like the Knights ones are sort of already covered with Circle or Ritter options

I quite like the idea of a status for each of the (published) ancestors, building on the existing ability. Possibly asking a bit too much given how difficult it is getting even a single guild special together, but possibly the hope of some tougher stats much draw in the munchkins.

This can also be achieved via a CC contract, which is probably more doable than a series of guild specials.

V good idea J.

To make the guild more popular it needs a campaign or 2 set in the baronies.

Now that baronies peeps can join some guilds it makes them more likely to be played.

I think the current circle abilities could be shifted to a status allowing southern peeps to join guilds freely?

Yep, I did mean like KotL statuses (and not Ritter stuff) but quite like the idea of Ancestor based statuses as they aren't really developed/fleshed out in current Circle book.

Cool idea, happy to put in CC contracts for this.

Anyone have any idea for specifics?

If we are going to do Ancestors type statuses then does anyone has any background/history on main ancestors? I don't really know anything about them bar brief bit in book and abilities they give you currently.

That might help with CC contract/specifics etc

I'll let you know once I've sent my Ulio multi class in. Broadly though Ulio seemed like a scout based, rhagrim was a defensive warrior (armour based), Wyvett Veil was an offensive warrior and Issalania Sorrowsmith was a priest/wizard

The board looks considerably less cool than I envisaged. Will be redoing it...

Thanks Will.

One Idea I had for possible status's would be ones that represented membership or association with the different Warbands that make up the Warhost of the Claws of the Circle (Baronial penal, armoured hob horsemen, light skirmisher hob horsemen).

Happy to paste some flavour for the 6 warbands that make up the host, or would people prefer to stick to the ancestor idea?

Don't forget Baronies Demonkind! I absolutely love the idea of ancestral Statuses as per KotL.

Just call me TC. I make too many characters:

Archimonde - Ebony Drave Wizard (30 points)
Caligula - Evil Pure Priest of the Church of Dead Heroes (Necromancy/Warding) (715 points)
Horus - Warrior. Smash. (8th)
