The only way this makes sense to me is if:
kharn the betrayer = ADB,
just admit it guys

I notice how many hear idolize him like he's a god.

Sir, I must object.





Abnett or death.

I did not mean to idolise ADB, for me he is one of the better writers, but I do not feel he is standing out, compared to e.g. Wright/Abnett/Sanders
as ADB gave the most mature personalisation of Kharn in betrayer....

I am submitting my summary and 500 word mini-mini-story. It involves the Alpha Legion.
Here goes. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

Im planning to go with a story about a temple assassin, preferably vindicare. Some bits on his chilhood, in what kind of environment he grew up, recruitment to schola progenium, and then training/later life as an agent.

I dont think there has been a book on a life of an assassin so I thought it may be worth a shot.

There has been at least two, to my knowledge. However, that does sound like a good plot!

Brother Emund: Anything is better than nothing. Far too many people worship the corpse emperor. They think they are the "good guys", however they are the ones who follow the hypocrit. The guy who decided it best to toy and betray the true gods! He took it upon himself to take the gifts that were given to him by the true gods, and then run away to hide them. Yet the petty, feeble minds have to have someone to worship or they would falter!!!!

Write about that, buddy.

Well I'm definitely looking to enter. Cooking up a story featuring an Arbite and a Cult of Slaanesh that doesn't do heavy metal covers or run brothels. They're more into "perfect silence" and drugs that make colors dance and shift wildly.

And lots and lots of ritualistic murder.

So not as much fun as Kharne's diary but I like the idea and its madness.

In any case, your story sounds interesting. Do you have a special like for Adeptus Arbites?

My biggest nerd crush is on the Sisters, but Arbites don't have a lot of fiction which makes it ripe for the picking with new stories. At least that's my thought anyways.

And metal has had LOTS of drug abuse by performers over the years. Cocaine being a popular go to back in the day too. Also it's got more kick ass guitar solos to make your ears bleed and skull melt.
