hello everyone !!!

Quick transcript about Alexander Tuxford interview, a fluff writer for "ShadeSpire skirmish"

ShadeSpire
-Warhammer underworld : Shadespire is a town.
-City of shadespire exist between light and shadow realm. but before that, it was a trading hub in the realm of death. A wealthy place with a new class of self made man "cataphran". They invented how to store soul so they dont depart (and could transfert knowledge too). Off course Nagash wasn't super happy about soul not departing to him and felt hungry and hangry. Then he goes all magical on them and boom remove the "soul from the city" it was in the age of mythe. The town was left to rot in the desert during the age chaos with no one knowing about it. It's because everyone was so scared of nagash curse, map were burned, messenger were killed and so on. Town is very very big with a bunch of artifacts, gems etc "stuff of legends"
-So now the city was rediscovered and warband goes into it to loot and be the next great warlords !
-Not everyone in the realm of death is a skeleton with a sword. There are free peoples in it (more morose?). So you can build warbands from any alliances X realms combination !
-The desert around is a bone desert with winds that suck your souls and transform you into skeleton. (killing around 50% of the person sent ^^)
-It's more than creating a city it's about conceptualise the whole realm of death.
-In the realm of death there are a few oasis with water and plant where living can survive.
-As ppl from the realm of fire have the "passion of fire". In the realm of death the "cataphran" (not sure about the writing) cheated death and this was the greatest achievement, so that is a defining point of them.
-Shadespire details : Hills of bones engulfing parts of the city, horrible spirit roaming around.

Blades of khorne :
-writer (alex) joke about : Difficulty to find synonym to blood ^^
-Some rambling about number 8 and some tribes that cut their fingers to get to 8 ^^
-Why number 8 ? : no answer.

Age of myth
-There was a lot of wealth and empire in the age of myth ! it's interesting to imagine how these nobles house crumbled so fast in the age of chaos !

that's all for now !

Prediction : pretty sure we are going to see an army or something with these "cataphran" (maybe a native english speaker could help me with the writing.)

/cheers.
