Set your 40kLore flair
Set your 40kLore flair via the wondrous Flair Selection Page. Failure to do so may result in investigation by the Inquisition. You have been warned.
- Rule 1: Be respectful. Hate speech, trolling, and aggressive behavior will not be tolerated, and may result in a ban.
- Rule 2: No soliciting. Please don't use this as a platform to promote your blog, crowdfunding, or anything of the ilk. Posts featuring self-promotion will be removed.
- Rule 3: Please use SPOILER tags when necessary. This can be done with using code ["Spoiler text."](/spoiler) to appear as: "Spoiler text.". Also, no spoilers in post titles.
- Rule 4: No Memes, shitposts, or low-effort posts/comments. Leave those in /r/Grimdank. This also includes "who would win" and broad "what if" scenarios. There's /r/warhammerwhatif for that.
- Rule 4b: Do not post just links (YouTube, Imgur, Bell of Lost Souls, etc). While these are allowed, you must also provide a summary of the work, a specific reason you are posting, and credit to the original creator.
- Rule 5: This subreddit is for discussion of 40k lore only. Please do not post/discuss rules or tactics of the tabletop, painting, building, or miniatures. There are other subreddits for that. Please also do not post/discuss things that are generally off-topic to 40k lore.
- Rule 6: No real-world politics. Full stop. If you want to talk politics, go to one of the existing 50 million subs where you can already do this.
- Rule 7: Official lore and fan fiction/fluff are welcome, but posting screenshots of official Games Workshop and/or Black Library material is not allowed. You may transcribe the text, however, and we request that you cite the book it came from. Fan fiction must be labeled as such.
