Ask @JoshMReynolds:

How do you feel about the maps provided in the 2nd edition AoS core rule book? Do you have any plans to use these locations in future books? Also would you like to see more maps of various Age of Sigmar locations? If so any particular places you'd like to see maps of?

I like them, and I already have. I'd love to see maps of specific cities, like the one we got for part of Hammerhal Aqsha. Greywater Fastness, for instance, or Tempest's Eye. And maybe a map of Azyrheim, or parts of Azyr?

Where does Gravewild get it's food? does it grow it?

Yes. The soil in the area is surprisingly fertile, and there are communal farms within the city, and on the heights above. There are also vineyards and herds of dusthooves (a breed of hardy, Shyishian goat). Too, the Corvine Gate allows for easy trade with Nordrath and Azyr.

What is Gravewild's economy like? I know it has a realmgate to azyr, so it can collect tariffs from trade. But what else is there? Any metal in the mountains? What are some the products does it produce?

Gravewild's economy is primarily predicated on trade. Damask, spices, and grave-silk are traditional trade goods. There are mines in the mountains, and a famed type of ceramic made from the dust-wastes that surround the city. The soil in the area is fertile, and there are vineyards on the slopes above the city, which produce a dark wine called Stargleam.

What do you know of the Great oubliette?

Not much, really. I know it's implausibly immense, and holds more than just mortal souls - daemons, monsters...there are even gods imprisoned in it. Basically anyone who attracts Nagash's ire in a big way gets punted into a cell, should they be captured by the Spirit Torments that serve as Nagash's jailers.

Is there an era where Sigmar stopped "picking up" souls to create Stormcast? I'm trying to create a narrative for my free city and I could like to make it so one Lord Cellestant was one of the humans who fight during the city creation and decades later he meets an descendant of his old best friend.

He's still picking them up, as far as I know. And that narrative sounds great to me.

Root-Kings, I like this idea. What’s the plan to these duardin?? In the future, can we read any novel with main characters Root-Kings?? Thank you

No plan, at the moment. They're just a bit of background flavour I threw in to a few different stories to add some variety to the Dispossessed. I'd like to do more with them (and with the Dispossessed in general), in the future however, if the right project comes up.

What are your thoughts on Endless Spells? Do you think they can be good villains by themselves as Rogue Spells, considering that they behave like automatons? Would the story about a group of Spell Hunters going after a Rogue Endless Spell be interesting?

Sure. I think there's an interesting potential there, and I'd honestly be surprised if there's not someone working on a Spell Hunter story (or stories) right now.

Any tips for describing what a person's voice sounds link? I have the general idea of what I'd like it to be but can never find the words at the time

Keep it simple, to start with. Is it soft? Harsh? Loud? Thin? I usually only make especial note of it when the voice isn't 'normal', i.e. Space Marines, duardin, vampires, etc.

Book about Collegiate Arcane politics when

Honestly? It probably depends on the faction release schedule. If GW have something planned for them for the near future (battletome, etc.) then not until around the time that comes out. If they don't, then probably whenever someone pitches one. I'm actually noodling with some short story ideas centred on them at the moment, because I suspect those will be an easier pitch than a full novel.

Have you heard of the Sons of the Phoenix? They're a primaries chapter that may or may not have Fulgrim flavored geneseed. Thought it'd be interesting to see you do a novel or short story on them. Your clone lord books are great

I have. Weren't they a fan-created chapter or something? If they were, I don't know that I could use them. Glad you enjoyed the books?

In Black pyramid, I noticed that there was a human that worships sotek. So he still alive? What is his relationship with Dracothion and Sigmar? Did he join Sigmar's pantheon?

All very good questions I will hopefully explore at length in that freeguild novel I'm hoping to write, as it'd be about the Gold Gryphons, Twelfth Cohort (the ones in the book).

What was/is Taltus going to do with the jungle under Caddow/Gravewild? And where does the city get is water(water source) from? there was mention of aqueducts but no mountains in the area.

He plans to turn it into a communal garden. And there are mountains (that's where the beastmen went), just not big ones. Most of the water was/is drawn from an underground aquifer, or from rain (which is where the cisterns come in). But until the aquifer is suitably purified, the city will import fresh water from Azyr.
