Re: Setzer has died

Damn. Come on after Christmas and this happens.

Damnit I LIKED Setzer! We had some off-forum conversations about the politics of the BattleTech universe, and he was fun to discuss it with. I didn't know him better than that, but I LIKED him!

May he find Peace.

The Necrons won in the end, from the sound of it by sealing off warp-space from real-space - no warp-access, no psykers, and without psykers, the God-Emperor...

Re: From Out of the Dark - A Star Wars/40K Crossover

20 BBY? 21 BBY? So the bit with the Necron's temple takes place 20 years before the Battle of Yavin, and the two paragraphs with the freighter takes place one year before the temple scene?
