Question HeroScape background / lore

Hi,

I'm new to the game, and while I'm still slowly digesting the wealth of information on this site (and will be for some time to come), one thing I really can't wait to start with is reading up on the "official" background/lore of the game. Like who are the factions and their generals, what's their story, why do certain units fight for certain factions, how have the alliances shifted and so on.

But I'm having a hard time finding any detailed info on stuff like wellsprings, the planet (or universe?) called Valhalla, and pretty much anything in-depth. I was actually expecting there to be a series of novels, as the glimpses I do get of the HeroScape universe make me think it could be everything as rich as, for example, the Warhammer or LotR universes.

Am I simply overlooking this information, or is what we read in the rulebook (I only have RotV at the moment) all we get, and we need to make up the rest in our own minds? If I am indeed overlooking it, please point me in the right direction .

Thanks, Zeus

Re: HeroScape background / lore

There were some cartoon ads also.
Not much official-wise. There is quite a bit of Fan Fiction though.

A cloud can change its semblance, yet retain its will
With the intimacy of destruction, One knows what it is to be alive
The empty sky holds no reflection, for sorrow

Here's a cool site that @twilkerson made available a little while back, perhaps you could find some stuff there.
