Default "Master of the First/The Long Night" Audio Drama Cover!

Well the title says most of it all. It's an upcoming double audio, much like The Dark King/The Lightning Tower and Thief of Revelation/Hunter's Moon. Thoughts on it?

Hate audios, but sounds like it could have some good fluff in there. So, thoughts on who we're looking at there? That's never Curze, and going from that, and the scale, i'd day that isn't the Lion. So Corswain perhaps? Or even Luther somehow? They're the only two who could arguably given the title 'Master of the First' seeing as they are both in control of large elements of the Legion. Still, it sounds like a title for the Lion more than anyone.

It's probably just a generic DA and NL. There's only one Master of the First.

Then again, just looking at the dagger the NL is holding makes me speculate wildly that it could be one of the splinters of the Athame, so it could be a named NL trying to stick it in the Lion. It just seems too stylised and central to the image for it not to have some significance.

I think The Long Night is about Sev being incarcerated onboard the Invicible Reason and talking to a dead warp ghost girl. I also want to think Master of the First is about Luther and the Fallen, but I could be wrong so dont quote me on that one.

The Dark Angels and the Night Lords fought one another to a bloody stalemate during the Thramas Crusade and, though the Lion eventually claimed victory, it left both Legions scattered and under-strength. Back on Caliban, those Dark Angels loyal to Luther begin to grow impatient for a return to past glories, allowing the corruption at the world's heart to spread. Meanwhile Jago Sevatarion, First Captain of the Night Lords, languishes in a gaol cell in the heart of Ultramar. Far from a spent force, both Legions must consider where their own personal loyalties lie, and what path they will take in the days and months to come.

How odd.

Quote:
“We are one of the last loyal Legions left at full strength in the Imperium, ...”

Excerpt From: Christian Dunn. “Age of Darkness.” iBooks.
That's Lion El'Jonson speaking, circa "Savage Weapons". What he says makes sense, given the fact that the Night Haunter and the Night Lords weren't so much fighting the Dark Angels over the past 26 months as they were drawing them into a interstellar game of Whack-A-Mole.

A scant time later, the Dark Angels use Tuchulcha to ambush the Night Lords. They destroy roughly thirty percent of their enemies, who in turn scatter to the four corners of the galaxy.

I want to re-emphasize this. It took practically everything going the Dark Angels' way for them to destroy a third of a Legion. Given this, I sincerely hope that the person responsible for the intro descriptions is taking massive liberties. Why? Because the idea that the Dark Angels are somehow all of a sudden understrength completely contradicts the events described in The Lion and the decisions El'Jonson made in that story and in subsequent events. That is, if he's not operating with a roughly full-strength legion, his already bizarre call to let Typhon and a Death Guard fleet go free becomes ridiculous. His notion that he'll be a force to be reckoned with precisely because of the intact state of his legion makes no sense.

Again, I hope I'm overreacting and this is nothing more than a poorly-written blurb. If that's not the case, though, it's going to be rather frustrating going from this point on. Gav Thorpe's been apparently given the helm since The Lion (he also wrote "By the Lion's Hand", in the Imperial Truth anthology), so it's not like it can even be said that different authors went in different directions!

Could also mean that they have the men, but are without weapons and materials to still conduct the war. Or slightly prior to Prince of Crows, that they took a heavier blow as well when they destroyed 30% of the Night Lords forces.

Sorry, forkmaster, but it's very hard to reconcile your first idea with "full strength".

Where the second idea is concerned... it's never mentioned. And if such a blow was somehow struck, it just robs the impact of the whole Tuchulcha angle.
