well, as was pointed out earlier, 40k isn't actually kid friendly so GW having to take a gak on it's own lore was to be expected.


It isn't? I wish you'd been around to tell 9 year old me and my group of friends that at the time we all started reading and playing

I think he means the setting not the game The game is clearly aimed at young teens and that rough age bracket. Heck I did a poll here a while back and around 13 or so was the biggest spike with the bulk of people starting this hobby being under 20 with a fast tapering off beyond that.

The setting itself is most certainly not kid friendly

"I saw Robocop as a kid. I loved it. Therefore, Robocop is kid-friendly."

Do you expect anyone to take this chain of logic seriously?

You've managed to avoid almost every RPG game right? The FIRST rule of adventuring is to STEAL EVERYTHING that isn't bolted down*! If you can carry it you steal it! Coins, gemstones, rubbish bits of armour. Anything you can lay your hands on you steal!

I mean, sure, Skyrim doesn't get referred to as Inventory Management Simulator for nothing - but then Skyrim doesn't preach that Tau confiscating barrels full of ravenous squid monsters is bad, but stealing from a market stall is fine so long as you're trying to help your freind.

And in the first book we learned that looting shops doesn't warrant passing judgement over, but selling space on your own starship makes you reprehensible.

Perhaps this is why we don't generally turn to pre-teens for lessons on morality.
