Its kind of weird and dumb that the failure of the ritual to save the world sucked out the Incarnates powers, but then they just naturally got them back.

They could have portrayed the ritual as partially successful or the creation of the eight realms as an unintended beneficial side effect, but the End Times has them unambiguously portrayed as owned in every possible way.

Yeah the disconnect between End Times and Age of Sigmar is pretty huge. I honestly feel like the decision to blow up the Old World is retroactively justified a bit by Age of Sigmar being pretty interesting in its own right at this point (and the Old World coming back in a presumably less static way than it was stuck in before), but the way they handled the transition was still a huge loving mess no matter how you look at it.

Age of Sigmar will have to be a lot better than it currently is to even begin justifying the ungodly mess that is End Times.

Just think back to when you played with legos and action figures or whatever, and when you were done playing you decided to blow everything up for no reason. There's the reason and justification, writ large

Yeah I'm not saying it justifies the lovely version of it we got which was so poorly managed that different books didn't even do a good job of creating a coherent continuity for it. Just that I think that shaking things up was justified, and now we might belatedly be ending up with a best of both worlds in some ways, depending on how good the new Old World ends up being. If nothing else it's adding novelty by exploring previously unexplored factions though, so that's a plus. I think the experience also helped when it came to advancing the plot in 40k in a non-destructive way.

Alarielle, Teclis, and Alith Anar all own. Also CA really improved Imric by just turning the smug dickhead level to even more than how GW wrote him.

Eltharion's in AoS as a living suit of armor because every time he gets a new body it dies to Arkhan's curse again. It seems pretty weird sometimes who they decided to bring back and who they decided to leave behind.
