    Nice piece - mostly based on Survival Instinct I think. Not sure where the bit about Melerva and Balthazar is from, it doesn't ring a bell. Perhaps it's new?

    I am finding it hard to come to terms with the hive being the Palatine and the enforcers being Palanite. I don't know if they're meant to be the same or if it's intentional :LOL:

    Dust Falls was an ORB campaign played in the GW studio that featured in a bunch of White Dwarf articles.

    The orb books make reference to van zep but melerva is new to me.

    Do we think there is any significance in an article on the setting?

    For myself, just a curiosity that this article, pulled as it is very much from the ORB/Reloaded edition of the setting as a hardscrabble cycberpunk Western frontier, doesn’t even touch on the new N17/N18 edition of the setting as a cyberpunk paramilitary battleground of conflict between the Houses.

    It could be a deliberate effort to make everybody happy. Or it could be easy and convenient recycling of already-created content.

    But the disconnect is a curiosity.

    It's a bit odd isn't it? I remember one of the seminars was talking about possible new settings/ideas such as narco lords and psyker slave traders.

    It's more likely though that I'm getting myself excited and it's nothing more than recycling.

    I welcomed the article - but then I am ignoring the N17/8 militia fluff and imagining a more old school setting. :)

    I think it's just recycling, but the nod is appreciated.

    As for the Palanite enforcers... Well you'd hope that's just a typo... Wouldn't you, but I'd not put it past them to try to claim it was intentional...

    I'm sure palanite is intentional, they've used it before. I believe it was in last year's seminar on the future of Necromunda.

    That doesn't necessarily mean it's intentional, I've seen simple mistakes like that persist for years. If it is intentional, it annoys me a bit :LOL:

    Hope they do more of these!
    Is there a necro wiki anywhere?
