This is exactly like what blizzard is doing with World of Warcrap, dumbing down the backstory to sellout to 13 yr old kids with an epeen complex (the game itself has pretty much been buttraped to shit now because of this).
Sadly to my knowledge it is true. I can believe the idea of a GK being cursed and stuck wandering the warp but not wreaking massive havoc within it. That is just to unbelieveable.

My god I for about ram- i mean sly marbo. That char. was such a cheesball

Uriel Ventris didn't defeat entire daemonic hordes on his own.

Here's a question. How exactly does one rise through the ranks of the GK whilst being stuck in the warp? Would not the constant battle for survival in a realm of pure madness make it a little difficult to co-ordinate anything? How do the other GKs even know he's still alive in there?

The whole story is just full of holes in you ask me.

They use email loaded on PDAs with windows 7. Bill Gates is after all an agent of Tzeench. Yes even in the warp the big 4 all have wireless connection.

Didn't you hear about the Khorne's new internet cafe chain Coff- Blood for the Blood God. Somehow anything that guy says winds up turning in to a blood for the blood god spill.

He was Supreme Grand Master before he was dragged into the Warp.

My bad then. I thought he got sucked into the warp fighting M`Kar which the GW page said happened when he was low level.

Nah, basically it went:

Banished M'kar (as a battle-brother) on Acralem and was subsequently cursed by the Daemon > Rose through the ranks to Supreme Grand Master > Returned to Acralem where upon the curse took effect and he was dragged into the warp.

But even so your point still stands. I imagine it would still be a little difficult to coordinate the Chapter when he is wondering through the warp, outwitting Tzeentch and generally just being stronger than Khorne and better than Chaos...

Unless of course the title of Supreme Grandmaster is now more of a respectful titular role (without holding any direct leadership role), not bestowing it on a successor considering Draigo is still (somehow) alive (in a sense).

He didn't have to, they ran from him in fear..

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

i liked it more when the GK only had a council of grandmasters, now they have a supreme grandmaster/chapter master like all the other chapters
