Just listened to the audiobook Mortarions heart, Draigo does NOT best him via physical or even psychic means (i.e. Draigo does not overcome him through strength)

Please spoil us, I think a lot of us have waited to hear how that story would be handled.

Edit:
Found a spoiler bit on Warseer


My comment

Stumbled upon a very relevant blog post from L.J Goulding

"And do you want to know where Draigo’s destiny is actually taking him in the future? My gods, you’re in for a treat…"

Please let it be dark...

Anyone care to post up some spoilers from the audio?

If it's anything other than grimdark, then I will hate him forever. The only thing restraining me from the full on Draigo bashing, is the hope that it ends awfully for him.

How does one not know a name but carries it? Sounds like I'm asking a Yahoo! riddle.

And it's not explained or hinted as to why the GM refuses to share the name?

A grimdark possible ending for Draigo would be very good yes, but it shouldn't be a foregone conclusion that his end will be bad. Like the 13th Black Crusade it should look as if the darker ending has a far greater chance of victory, but the good ending has just enough possibility to be feasible. The spark of hope in the dark.

In regards to the Grey Knights carrying the true name of Mortarion without knowing it. Id speculate its somehow gleaned from their mysterious geneseed, that supposedly comes from the Emperor himself. Unconschious knowledge comming to the forefront of the mind as he faces one of the Emperor's fallen sons.

Hmmmm, not for me. If it ends anything other than horribly for Draigo, then he will go down as the biggest Mary Sue in history, to the point where I would say the term 'Mary Sue' be turned to 'Kaldor Draigo'. Sure it will take some work to get those who know nothing about 40k to get the term going, but I'm fairly sure if you showed anyone his fluff that comes with a good ending as well they would readily agree.
