Once again the lesser races quiver with fear as the Dawi Zharr march forth, this time with the 6th issue of the Word of Hashut ezine. Continuing on the great legacy of the past we hope you enjoy this issue of Chaos Dwarf lore! This quarter’s high rez is 76 megs.
Here we are again, and once again another late issue, grrrrr. As noted in the work thread this issue was supposed to be out on September 26th, but here we are on the 11th of October. If I have to sacrifice a billion slaves one of these times we are going to get this thing out on time. Maybe next time I’ll take away all of Sojourn’s boots, that should motivate her! (to her defense it wasn’t just her, I just wanted to pick on her).
Enough of that, herein you’ll find 96 pages of Dawi Zharr lore and a host of great articles and resources. This issue we really tried to do something a bit different with the layout as well as the article content. I really do not want to keep doing the same exact thing every time. Tell me what you think as going forward we are not adverse to trying out stuff and seeing what works and what doesn’t
As always there is always something to do, with that in mind Issue #7 is already in the plannings stages. If you have something you want to turn in please direct it to our Submissions Coordinator Maul He will take it from there and he and I will discuss the content and placement of your submission and any revisions that need be made.
As you can see the trend of great covers is continued in this mag with igorvet creating the great front page artwork and GRNDL contributing on the back cover.
As with previous issues there are a few more ways to view the Word of Hashut:
Heh, as always I noticed a few things after the fact: there are a few minor image shifts on pages 86 and 87, if there are any other ones or mistakes let me know and I’ll take care of them in the next few days.
Hm, Thommy as you didn’t respond to my PM on that matter I guess I just supposed you’re all fine with my designs. I for my part see no conflict between the text and the illustration. Their alphabet is described as a mixture of the angular Khazalid runes and the round Dark Tongue symbols, and that’s what I made up.
If you feel you can do it better then… well just go and form your own secret cult! g
That wasn’t really a criticism directed at you, Ishkur. Your work was fine, and I think my work was fine…it’s just that they have no relationship to one another! I did get your PM, but I wasn’t sure how to respond to it since, as I say, it seemed to be a completely independent piece of work. A good piece of work, but I don’t know if you read my article before doing it, or if Willmark just gave you a similar brief to mine. I’ve also been away and busy for large chunks of the last month or two, and I haven’t been giving CDO my full attention.
Essentially, I think that you and I could have done a good collaborative article on this subject - it’s just that what appears in this issue of WoH isn’t it!
I blame me not being around and not fully getting what was asked of me for it. It was very much Willmark’s baby that he kind of threw at me without me quite knowing how to feed it and change it and stuff. If everyone else likes it then that’s fine, but I personally feel like it was a bit of a misfire.
Nah Thommy it’s not bad, if anything it’s much like some of the criticism for Issue #5. Then you correctly pointed out it’s not like any of us are getting paid for this. look at the goof up for the Artisans, I know I had that right at one point but after working on it for months it got missed. Fortunately I have it corrected now. This one was a struggle to get finished and hopefully we will do a better job of it going forward. Having Maul in place right from the beginning of the next issue will help. On top of all this: I work 2 jobs, have 2 kids, wife, dog, a house to maintain, yard to take care of, etc this before I factor in any warhammer related stuff. Everyones busy, know I certainly am.
Another point we have stuff coming in from all over, it’s no small feat to even get this thing out.
Baggronor and all many thanks on the layout. I wanted to try something different this time around and see what did or did not work. Believe it or not a white layout is even tougher to do!
