PostSubject: Heart of Darkness   Tue May 01 2012, 15:35

So flipping through my white dwarf this month, I notice towards the back of the catalog that is called a maginzine, there was some Games Day info. One of which was the 40k scenerio called the Heart of Darkness. From the little blurp given, it looks Like the story is Lady Malys is looking for some ancient artifact called the Heart of Darkness, which when found will give her enough power to topple Vect from his throne as High Lord of Commorragh.

So what do you guys think about this? I personally will not be going to Games Day (its just too far and too much cash to take a trip) but do you think GW will actually try and advance a story for once? I highly doubt it, but I would like some of your guys oppinion on this.

(I'm going to move this to News and Rumours)

Below is the complete text from the ad.

Quote :
“Hidden beneath their so-called “military complex” lies the key to my victory over Asdrubael Vect. With the Heart of Darkness, I could finally crush Vect and claim my rightful place as Supreme Overlord of Commorragh. Let the mon keigh pray to their pathetic corpse god for deliverance … By morning we will have crushed their insignificant armies and taken our rightful due in slaves and blood.

Return to me with the Heart, my children, or do not dare return at all ..”
- Lady Malys

Pit lasgun against wych blade in this epic battle between the valiant Imperial Guard of the Ultramar defence Force and the deparved Dark Eldar of the Cabal of the poisoned Tongue. Will Lady Malys succeed in unearthing an ancient and powerful artifact or will the servants of the God Emperor repel her armies and, in doing so, save their immortal souls?

Probably what will happen, if they decide to advance anything at all, is that Malys will get the heart, Vect will have known about her treachery for ever, and will be waiting on her when she gets back with it, and dispose of her. In the end, nothing will change...

More likely is that the heart just wont be there...

My own feeling is that it will stay at the level of a scenario for a battle and change nothing in the timeline. Still, it's a fun idea Smile Thanks for the heads up.

^agreed. I can only think of one obvious example where they've changed something like that, captain tycho, who they killed off during the third war for armageddon campaign. Can't see them getting rid of vect though, it's a bit drastic considering he's been in control for several thousand years

Exactly. Several thousand years and the fluff all hints to him being bored. However, I would love to see a change in leadership.

I would say this looks 99.9999% as a simple, Games Day US participation game with a bit of background to make it interesting. I'd love to be wrong but that's how I call it, I guess it is news for now....

I get the feeling the outcome will be something along the lines of: And the invincible ultra marines outsmarted the cleverest race in the galaxy and shrugged off all the weapons the pixies could hurl at them because poison just get's absorbed by them. All the guardsmen died.

Tha end!

I hope to Khaine the Dark Eldar wipe the floor with these mewling fools.
