Talk:Bretonnia

"That said, it wasn't entirely a retcon, just more of a merge. Games Workshop didn't go completely balls to the wall retarded, and fleshed the 6th edition out slightly more over the years. They kept the lore of Peasants rising to become Knights, but made it crystal clear that these were VERY RARE occurrences. Of course, this is in part due to the fact that peasants are malformed, stunted individuals, and there aren't many who are large and strong enough to perform heroics worthy of knighthood. The other reason is that many nobles despise peasants entering their elite ranks, and will often try everything they can to prevent it (murder m8). Some of these poor bastards slip through though, too badass for anyone to do anything. Like Repanse de Lyonesse, a shepherdess who ended up becoming a Duchess."

This is still a pretty major retcon, because not only did it go from the status quo to only happening three times, but their children are still peasants. It's still changing it in a major way so "In 5E, the knight springs from the people. In 6E, the knight dominates the people. Aren't retcons nice?" Is a very good summation of what happened. -- Triacom (talk) 18:57, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
One more thing I'll say on this before taking it up for moderation, is that your defences for it not being a retcon, "peasants are malformed, stunted individuals, and there aren't many who are large and strong enough to perform heroics worthy of knighthood" and "many nobles despise peasants entering their elite ranks, and will often try everything they can to prevent it (murder m8)" are also largely retcons used to justify the major retcon. A shame you don't seem interested in discussing it, or listening to reason. -- Triacom (talk) 04:31, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
