Based on the other titles that people had, The War Lord for example, the name was probably more of a title given to him by the war lords.Icecreamdif 21:49, September 27, 2010 (UTC)
I think it's worth mentioning (in a behind the scenes box or whatever) that in the first appearance of the character 'Magnus' it's not made clear that this is in fact the War Chief - given the way the character is presented (both written, and drawn in a vaguely Delgado-esque way), the choice of name (Ma-----), and the point of the story (clearly an important event in the lives of both Magnus and the Doctor and the origins of a significant feud between them), I think it's fairly clear that the *author's original intention* was that Magnus was the young Master and this was later retconned by others for reasons best known to themselves. Turning Magnus into the War Chief sort of renders 'Flashback' incomprehensible in that on-screen in The War Games there's no implication the Doctor and the War Chief had a close prior relationship.
Mention in FASA that he is The Master Edit
Does anyone have a copy of the FASA Role Playing Game handy? If so, could they say exactly what it says about The War Chief being The Master? Thanks.
I have the relavent sections, and in all truth it mentions nothing of the Master being the War Chief, only that they were allies during an uprising and the Master helped the War Chief when he worked for the War Lord. It only points out that the Master and Monk were one and the same. I have heard elsewhere however, that the earliest editions were the ones that maintained that the War Chief and the Master were the same Time Lord. Whether this is true or not i can't really verify, but someone out there must know.184.108.40.206talk to me 17:19, July 16, 2012 (UTC)
FASA lists the War Chief as a seperate character Edit
I have all the modules for the FASA rpg and nowhere does it say that the War Chief is the Master, only another fellow renegade who teamed up with the Master on a few occasions. It even has a drawing of his newest incarnation! Is it worth keeping the sentence about FASA saying that he was the Master?TARDIS43 ☎ 14:00, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
Reverted edits Edit
I have reverted the edits made by user:220.127.116.11 to this page and Magnus, The War Games and the Master. Several months ago this user tried to make his point on several talk pages, but failed to provide convincing evidence per this wiki's rules. I reverted the edits and suggested he try the forums; as he did not do so, I've reverted his edits again. Shambala108 ☎ 16:19, January 29, 2014 (UTC)
