I'm not sure if this already has a thread but if so, please direct me to it and I will move my thoughts there.
I have played the first game and all of its expansions all the way through, having completed every campaign in the expansions and following the story very closely, and I have noticed a number of areas where the books differ from the games. A few examples include General Sturnn and the titan surviving on Lorn V, though that would imply Taldeer dies in the game, which is impossible seeing as she escapes to participate in Dark Crusade. Taldeer is also said to be a farseer of Biel-Tan in the books, while in the game Taldeer is a farseer of Ulthwe, and it is Ulthwe, not Biel-Tan, that is present on Lorn V during Winter Assault. Another two examples are that in the first book, Colonel Brom is killed, and Inquisitor Toth takes the God-Splitter from Angelos, while in the games Brom survives to appear in the end of the Eldar Soulstorm campaign, and Angelos carries the God-Splitter as recently as DoWIII itself. So, which is right: the books or the games? Or is there a hybrid between the two? I should hope it is the latter because, as much as I like the way the games developed the story for the most part, I like that Tanthius lived through the story to look over Ckrius, as well as the adaption of Isador's final moments. But above all of that, I like the presumptions made by Ahriman in Tempest that referenced the Blood Ravens connection to the Thousand Sons, and I hope this will be confirmed or denied in the next game or its potential expansions. Anyway, I'd like to hear your thoughts, guys! Which do you think is the more canon of the two?
