22nd Smoke Jaguar Freebirth Cluster
« on: 27 April 2019, 21:37:53 »
The 22nd Smoke Jaguar Freebirth Cluster is mentioned in the battle of Luthien scenario pack.

Later sources indicate the Smoke Jaguars didn't let Freeborns into the warrior caste.

Also, this was in the Luthien Scenario pack, and... well... it says a lot of things.

Did the 22nd Smoke Jaguar Freebirth Cluster actually exist? Might the Smoke Jaguars have experimented with Freeborn warriors and then ditch the idea because of how badly Luthien went? Maybe the cluster existed and was full of trueborns, but... like, trueborns the Smoke Jaguars really really didn't like?

Or was it just a case of the Luthien scenario pack said it and... well... the Luthien scenario pack said a lot of things...
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

So it turns out that according to the A Time of War Companion, the Smoke Jaguars actually did use freeborn troops.

Should the reference to the 22nd freeborn cluster still be considered an error?

Error. Troop listings in the Luthien pack are erroneous and non-canon unless supported by other information. The use of freeborn troops isn’t enough to substantiate that whole unit.
