Regarding the COV virus and its effects: Things are frustrating, and confusing, and scary. People dream up conspiracy theories to help make sense of things. They're not helpful, though, and only serve to make the world more confusing and scarier. We're not going to have that here. And we swear to God, if anyone comes in here and starts spouting off QAnon bullshit about COVID or literally anything else, you are going to get permabanned so thoroughly that your grandchildren won't be allowed to post here.
Thread starter reptile2k1 Start date Sep 2, Being generally very interested in all things 40k, and looking for some background material to fuel my planned RPG campaign, I downloaded the so-called Warhammer 40k Fluff Bible. I took a glance over the pdf file and immediately realized that the complete abscence of layout makes reading this thing utterly impossible, so I thought I could revamp it and do a readable version.
While layouting the first few pages, I read some snippets here and there, stumbling over strange things like "Space Marines recruiting on Medieval Worlds" and the exploits of some strange female Assassin. This made me doubt the reliability of the entire document.
So here my question, wise people of OGO: Is the so-called Warhammer 40k Fluff Bible a good source for background information, based on actual GW publications, or is it just some fan-boy's lousy hackjob? Ivan Sorensen Amiga fan Validated User. Its genuine enough, but the majority of it dates from 2nd edition and Rogue Trader when the fluff was actually written.
I cant offhand recall anything I read in there, that was not from a 40K book. Validated User. Evilcorp Occasional Misanthrope. Most of the fluff-bible stuff is second edition and RT background, with the newer background pretty well represented theres just less of the new background in general.
Its very reliable, if you can keep track of what background has been supersceded. Thats a big if. Thx for all the replies. I glanced over some headers again and since certain topics seem to be adressed several times, I guess the information provided is taken from several books 3 to 4 at least.
With all that redundancy, it should be possible to reduce the page count immensely. Its way way more than just 4 books. I ran a spell checker across the first few pages and realized that most "typos" are typical OCR glitches Brother Tiberius Disgruntled Inquisitor.

Warhammer 40K Fluff Bible
The Warhammer 40K Fluff Bible is a really really long document written by fanboys that compiles all the information about the Warhammer 40, setting that isn't directly related to playing the tabletop wargame. It collects information distilled from the various WarHammer codices and issues of White Dwarf. This is like those "series bibles" that screenwriters get when they are hired to write an episode for a teevee show. It has all the info you need and all the stuff you shouldn't contradict if you're going to write a story in that genre. Any writefag that earnestly wants to make a WH40K novel should have a copy of this. It's pages long.
