EYE OF TEEGEE WEEK II SUMMARY
With the worlds of the Cadian Gate all but on their knees with the weight of internal strife and the so-called Plague of Unbelief, Abaddon the Despoiler has launched an invasion the scale of which has not been seen since the darkest days of the Horus Heresy. The Imperial Navy has been forced to engage with a force many times its own strength, and has been beaten back across a number of key sectors including the all-Important Cadian Sector.
The skies above the worlds of the Imperium have been turned black with innumerable drop craft as the dread Legions of Chaos begin their invasion. The Planet Killer itself, Abaddon’s flagship, drifts ever closer to the Cadian system. Terrible, mighty Traitor Marines tread the surface of worlds they have not set foot upon for ten millennia and their hatred and thirst for vengeance truly knows no bounds. The Emperor’s Children, led by the immortal son of Slaanesh, Lucius the Eternal, feast well upon the population of Belisar in unholy orgies of destruction and worse. Swarms of Daemons stalk across the battlefields of Amistel, the ground beneath their feet cluttered with the unquiet corpses of those who the Plague of Unbelief has consumed. In the wake of the Chaos Space Marine Legions come the hordes of the damned: traitors, mutants, cultists and fiends of the very worst aspect despoiling the domains of Mankind by their very presence. The acts of wanton destruction and desecration they have carried out have shaken the stoic defenders to the core.

I must admit that i am rather fond of the Tau Empire, both in terms of gameplay, designand fluff. It's nice have a race that is actually hopeful, progressive in the setting and is not constantly being evil due to constant bigotry (Imperium and Eldar), evil gods (chaos), being hardwired to fight everything it comes across (Orks) or all consuming devourers. Even if in the end they are still totalitarian and can be rather intolerant about people who stand squarely against the greater good. In any case, it's a nice twist on the Federation trope if you ask me.
Of course, people are free to disagree with me on that point and i can appreciate why some people might not like them. They are a new addition to a universe and were fairly divergent to what was established beforehand and how they have a more Asiatic feel in a universe more based in western fantasy tropes (even if the Eldar do have a bit of a Saumrai feel to them if you ask me). so i can see why some people might not like them. Oh well.
Tales of the Harem Knights

The Black Iron Tarkus, my deepest mark of shame as a knight, is a tale I feel merits a better telling than my earlier mention. He was a tragic case, one mentioned only in hushed tones among the brotherhood, and one I myself bear some blame for. He was once a symbol of what could be, but instead became a symbol of what to avoid.
I confess, I do not recall his name, something I can blame only on age and the fact that his adopted name, much like my own, overshadowed his past irrevocably. He was one of our recruits, one of many who joined in the wake of our brotherhood's initial rise to popularity among the people of this world. Many of them, I fear, came not for the same reasons as we, seeking wealth and glory rather than the quest of waifus and the joys of rubbing pointed ears and fluffy tails as many of the circle did. It was with his purpose that he, and many others, tried to emulate several of our number.
While he put voice to his request many times, I refused to teach him. Partially because I had my duties as sergeant of the guard at the time, and partially because I had taken more interest in my harem than I had in aiding my fellows. The young man showed promise as a warrior, besting most of his class in training, though he held a ruthless streak I can't say I approved of, to say nothing of his sense of disgust at the idea that we took subhumans, as he once called them, as our waifus.
How to do a villain

There has been too much of this one dimensional "MUHAHAHA!! I AM EVULZ! BOW BEFORE MY WICKEDNESS AND EVIL ARMIES OF PUPPY KILLING!" nonsense. Here are some things a villain should do and should not...
SHOULD DO-A number of things that can be described as evil and who's negative and can be strongly argued that they outweigh the net good they do
SHOULD NOT-Say that s/he is evil, unless she is specifically cast as insane or is being sarcastic. That is juvenile nonsense for people with only a small child's understanding of morality.
SHOULD DO-Things that benefit him/her or their cause with disregard for how it effects others.
SHOULD NOT-Do evil things for no logical reason (see Umbrella corporation).
SHOULD DO-If a course of action that is consider good can be used to further his/her objectives or to gain power, she should take it (such as recruiting young girls from brothels and street urchins to work in his/her factories because they are cheap and it gains him/her).
SHOULD NOT-If they make a deal with someone and the other party fills out their end of it, they should not just shoot him/her instead of filling out their end to the bargain. That will make it hard to make deals with others latter down the line.
SHOULD DO-Treat people as expendable resources to be thrown.
SHOULD NOT-Be randomly cruel and brutal to her/his men. This will not be good for their loyalty.
CAN DO BUT IS NOT REQUIRED-Evil Laughter, why not?
CAN BE DONE IN MODERATION-Dress in an intimidating manner. Applies to both minions and yourself. Black armor, a dark hooded robe, a black suit with a red tie, a dark grey military uniform. All can work. But when you get into piles of black spikes, chains, jagged knives, skulls everywhere, fanged faces and so forth, you become a joke
BAM! Back from the dead as usual, sort of Drawthread!
