How were you pronouncing Draigo before? Never thought of any other way to say it, are you going with 'Dry-Go' or something?

Janus is odd, I've always pronounced it in the traditional way the name is said, 'Yah-Nus' with the 'Ya' pronounced like it is in 'Yak'

Wait, wait hold on! Where has it ever been stated Sevatar survived to become a GK-founder? Haven't ADb planned all along to kill him off so that the traitors had some major players dead as well? Also Omegon seems unlikely. A Primarch would be noticeable.

But I think from the short summary that the story seems totally acceptable. That he

I totally missed that part! And I agree with CotE! ADB has said Sevatar is to die, so I assume that is still in play.

Even if ADB quashed that rumor he is yet just another author. Fluff is fluff pure and simple like it or dislike it as you might.

If you're implying what I think you are, then I doubt another author would go behind another's back and rewrite/ignore fluff he's established.

I'm just saying that authors are just that. Authors. You can regard of disregard their writing as you see fit yet more deranged fans would of course blast you for it.

the concept of dying is fuzzy (at best) in the 30-40K setting,
it would feel a little too stretched to have Sevatar become a GK,
but recent fluff has "spoiled" us with less believable scenario's
