Should the quotes on this page be deleted/moved to the Quotes Inquisition page? Apologies, forgot to sign in. Th232 06:27, 19 February 2007 (CET)

  • I believe that they should be removed in some form, although moved would be preferable. At least one is already in the quotes article. Also this article has no sources (wish you could do smilies here...) which is rather scary.--Jonru 10:24, 19 February 2007 (CET)

Deleted the two already in the quotes page, and moved the two that weren't. Hopefully I did it right. Th232 05:25, 20 February 2007 (CET)

The Thorian Faction Sourcebook contains a huge ammount of information, including the details of the creation of the inquisition. It may be worth condensing it for use in this article --Nikzbitz 14:02, 20 March 2007 (CET)


"Conclaves of the Ordos Tempestus" is a label given in the title given to the group Inquisitor Invixia was approved by. I believe that it refers to the sector, and that the "Conclaves" is how the ranking/leadership should be described as (it seems to fit in with the other books too). SanchiTachi 06:08, 2 July 2007 (CEST)

The Thorians[1] gives information on Conclaves as temporary meetings between Inquisitors. I don't know about higher leadership (if there is any, considering the eclectic and independent nature of Inquisitors), but Tyrus mentions the Grand Masters of his Ordo in the "Escape from Cephalon" battle report[2]. —Archlords 00:47, 26 October 2007 (CEST)
Further proof that I'm a dumbass: "The Inquisition does not have formal organisation, and therefore there is no system of ranks or command as there are in the Adeptus Terra or the military" (the very same page of the Thorian book). Individual cells and Ordos may have their own ranks, and there are Inquisitor Lords, but otherwise there doesn't seem to be any such thing. —Archlords 01:01, 26 October 2007 (CEST)


Sourcing would be very nice for the minor Ordos. Ordo Dialogus, in particular, looks suspiciously like a misreading of the Orders Dialogus. —Archlords 00:47, 26 October 2007 (CEST)

Removed the info about Nathaniel Garro and inserted a copied piece from the article about Malcador the Sigillite that better explins the founding. I also added the reference and edited the footnotes. Danwi 17:10 1 April

Thanks

Thanks for the tidy up on the Death Guard origin section. Wasn't sure of the best way to add it, and I'm terrible at setting links, etc. Hakster

no problem. it comes with experience, and if u ever are unsure again, just ask. ---Psyco 19:51, 18 July 2007 (CEST)
...and it would appear that someone has removed it anyway. Since the current Horus Heresy series of books are considered canon, I think it appropriate to leave the section in regarding the survivors of the Eisenstein being approached as the first members of the Inquisition (or at least, brought in to the organisation at its inception). Hakster

I've reapplied what you wrote, tis silly not to include mentions from some of the best 40k books out there...--Jonru 16:22, 25 February 2008 (CET)

Minor Ordos

As Archlord said above, citations for the Ordos Minor would be nice, in particular the Dialogus and the Militum. Also, if anyone has the WD number/article title with the one mentioned example of the Obsuletus, that would be good. Thanks! --Shard 02:15, 18 June 2008 (CEST)

I see someone has added the Ordo Militum back onto the page - I've put a 'cite this' tag on it, but since no one has ever been able to cite a source for it, I believe it should be removed. --Kaled 17:46, 26 March 2009 (GMT)

Links to Factions

I'm not the greatest at including links and could use some help in that regard, but More info about the Thorians and Amalthians have already been included in the database. Better Links to them would be nice. I've also noticed the factions pages are not linked, I can not find Monodominace, and could use some work. For example: The Thorian uses the Plural, while the Amalthian page uses the singular. Edit: found the Monodominant page, I didn't know what the singular form of the word was.

Sorry I'm not quite following you. I can move the pages so they are all singular or plural (I believe plural is the case here) but leave the singular links in. Did you have any other ideas for better linking? Cheers--Jonru 12:10, 23 July 2008 (CEST)
Yes.. the actual names of the faction which is in italics should be a link itself, instead of putting the name of the faction a second time as to make a link. I don't know how to do that, sorry.--Zigguratei 22:24, 23 July 2008 (CEST)
No worries :) I've made the changes and created a few redirects which should help. I'm in the process of updating the help files so i'll take a look at that section soon. Cheers--Jonru 11:01, 24 July 2008 (CEST)

For the Minor and Splinter Philosphies, can someone please put up some links becuase i have enever heard or seen anything about tehm in the canon. - T1868 - Janurary, 24, 2009

Sorry, a tad late replying to this! They are mostly from the 40K RPG, which is canon, though that's probably why you haven't heard of them. I've referenced the books, but I doubt there's anything online. --Phunting 20:27, 13 January 2010 (UTC)

I've just updated the sections on the formation of the Inquisition, it's organisation and structure using information taken mainly from the Thorian Sourcebook and Dark Heresy books --Kaled 12:22, 25 Jan 2009 (GMT)

Can anyone provide source for the two 'famous' Inquisitors below? Lord Inquisitor Gressil d'Angelus - current Lord Inquisitor Obscurus. Inquisitor Georgius Matejus - Ordo Malleus radical hunter - Accompanied with Brother-Captain Karl Ruben of the Grey Knights Chapter. --Kaled 18:22, 28 Jan 2009 (GMT)

Formation of the Inquisition

The founding of the Inquisition may be unclear from an in-universe point of view within the current timeline, but neither of the origins in the article are presented as mere legends or myths in their respective sources. Both seem to tell a "definite" story. Imo it should be made clearer that the Thorian Sourcebook and the tidbits from Flight of the Eisenstein (novel) + Collected Visions(irc) are conflicting fluff rather than conflicting tales. --Digganob 20:10, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Are they conflicting fluff though? It is possible that they are both true and that the Inquisition had more than one origin. The Emperor may have asked Malcador to gather a group of investigators but before the Inquisition was formally created, the two servants of the Emperor independantly created a similar organisation and the two were merged to create the Inquisition. Without further information I don't believe it is possible to say for certain whether it is contradictory fluff or whether there is an explanation that we just haven't been told. I agree it would be worth adding a statement to say they may just be contradictory fluff. --Kaled 20:22, 28 Jan 2009 (GMT)

i realy dont want to sound like a broken record but i havent seen anything in the canon supporting the splinter philosphies and alot of them sound like fan-fic.

They are all canon, they have been cited and as far as I can see all the sources given are correct - they're taken from The Thorian Sourcebook and the Dark Heresy books. Also, why has Inquisitor Obiwan Sherlock Clousseau been removed? As the first ever named Inquisitor in 40k (Rogue Trader) I don't see that his place was undeserved. Oh and thank you for correcting my typos. :-) --Kaled 06:20, 30 Jan 2009 (GMT)

Page Numbers

Inquisitor S., so... regarding page numbers, is the rule that all NEW contributions must have them, but anything legacy is just let slide? Because the convention on this particular page clearly seems to be that people are citing without page numbers. Piroko 18:42, 18 January 2012 (CET)

All information needs pagenumbers. In the case of novels chapter numbers. Old information has to be modified when touched. New information automatically has to be completely sourced to not add to the badly cited work. --Inquisitor S., Großmeister des Ordo Lexicanum 18:54, 18 January 2012 (CET)
