An introduction the Lore Lair

Hello and welcome to the Lore Lair! We hope you enjoy your stay here.

We are a small (but growing!) group of 40k enthusiasts looking to share our experiences in all aspects of 40k (especially the lore). Warhammer 40k is a universe of titanic proportions, and as a result, there are a variety of people who gather in this community. There are people looking to start investing in the table top game alongside those who've played in three editions or more. There are people who only care for the lore and even people who only collect and paint. Here at the Lore Lair, it doesn't matter so long as you have an interest in 40k. Any questions are valid here and we're all willing to try and help with anything 40k related (we're not all knowing, but we do our best).


Characters on the Lore Lair

If you've seen any of the topics on the forum, or received any replies to your intro post (if you haven't got one, you should make one!), you might have noticed that some people here on the forums take on a character. Most of the characters we create are based upon the 40k lore and can be interesting to explore (see the Fan Fiction area for examples). There are several reasons people take on the various characters they do: favouring a certain faction, improving debates through variety, better character for role play etc.

But whilst many people on the forum decide to create a character through their posts, their profile etc it's by no means mandatory. There are many users who don't create a character. This is perfectly fine. No one on the relay judges other users on whether they've chosen to take on a persona or not, the decision is up to you.

This should explain why some of the topics on the forum are presented in the way they are, and why certain members write in the styles they do.


Forum Rules

You will be expected to follow this simple set of rules during your time on the Lore Lair. This is to ensure that everyone has a pleasant experience. They are as follows:



  1. Treat other members with the respect they deserve. This should go without saying, but treat others as you wish to be treated.
  2. Please do not post text in all CAPITALS since this is considered to be shouting and is not necessary.
  3. Please refrain from posting images larger than 800x600 without spoiler tags. This is considerate to members with slow internet speeds, and keeps the forum looking tidy. Also, if an video or GIF has rapid flashing, please keep it in a spoiler tag and a warning.
  4. Insulting, flaming and personal attacks will be not tolerated.
  5. Please be considerate in language you use on the forum, some of our members are younger than others. Swearing is not completely banned, just do not swear unnecessarily, and only use minor words.
  6. Please do not post inappropriate material. I think everyone understands what I mean by this. The policy goes that if you would not feel comfortable viewing it at work, or in front of children or parents, don't post it!



Moderator responses to rule breaking will depend on cirumstances and the rules broken. You won't get banned for posting a large image without spoiler tags. Serious offences will be taken note of. Users who commit a serious offence will be given a warning. After this, repeated infringements will be met with a temporary ban. Continued rule breaking could result in a permanent ban.
