For Cadia, and the Emperor!
As the Chaos hordes of Luciver Anckor bear down upon the last settlement of Besana, only a thin line of Cadian Whiteshields bars their path. Led by the courageous Major Luka and supported by a single, battered Leman Russ, these heroic Cadians must hold out at all costs until reinforcements arrive.

If you look at the Advent Calender main page it actually already confirms what each story is about, at least the faction that it is about. From today;

Day 9 - Flesh Tearers
Day 10 - Death Guard (HH)
Day 11 - Inquisition
Day 12 - Tau
Day 13 - Necrons
Day 14 - Imperial Fists
Day 15 - Thousand Sons
Day 16 - Marines Malevolent
Day 17 - Mechanicus
Day 18 - Blood Angels
Day 19 - Dark Angels
Day 20 - Imperial Fists
Day 21 - Raven Guard
Day 22 - White Scars
Day 23 - Gaunt's Ghosts
Day 24 - Inquisition
Day 25 - World Eaters


Just a theory here, but according to the blog entry that was made a week or so ago, the 25th release will be a full novel. Now this calendar could only chart short stories, and that would mean that a short story and a novel will be released on Christmas Day. But I think that the calendar is telling us that the novel is a World Eaters novel, and on top of that the blog entry said that the novel was focused on a character from the 40k universe that we all know...

A Kharn novel perhaps?? I truly truly hope so. :biggrin:

The Advents + novel has been leaked and it appears that you were right with the exception of HH Death Guard. :)

Day 12: Brethren (MP3).


The Story:
Ultramarines sergeants Sicarius and Numitor spearhead an assault on a tau-held world. As their jump-pack clad Space Marines clash with powerful tau battlesuits, the two sergeants discover that the Tau Empire and the Imperium of Man may have as many similarities and differences – but does that matter when the xenos threaten the Emperor’s realm?
Listen to it because:
All stories have their beginning. In this tale, we see the Ultramarines first encounter with the Tau. As the elite warriors of both empires clash, the differences between them become apparent.

Along with a Kharn-related dataslate on the same day. Being the ultrapositive ray of sunshine that I am, I can only imagine the rules will be utter garbo, but they got me. My prediction for the cost of the dataslate? $9.99 USD.
Oh multiple nerdgasms! I truly truly do hope that we are about to get a Kharn novel, hell maybe my prediction from a few years ago will come true. When Ahriman: Exile was confirmed I wondered if the Four Avatars would get a series each; Kharn, Ahriman, Typhus and Lucius. Maybe I was right...

Day 13: The Word of the Silent King.

The Story:
The Blood Angels and necrons, locked in a long and bitter war for the fate of the Gehenna system, are both endangered by the arrival of the monstrous tyranids. When the Silent King himself makes overtures of alliance, Commander Dante of the Blood Angels enacts a dangerous plan that could rid the Imperium of the Silent King forever – but when the two leaders meet at Devil’s Crag, everything changes…
Read it because:
One of Warhammer 40,000's great mysteries is explored. Why did The Blood Angels ally with their Archenemy the Necrons at Devil's Crag? This story may have the answers.

This is then the answer to the event which made 40k-fans cry out in terror across the globe.

I'm just hoping it isn't limited to ebook.
I will buy and read it regardless, but damn do I want a print copy of that to sit next to my Ahriman books!

If this release follows the typical Christmas release, and there's no reason to think that it won't, it will be limited to an ebook for a few months. Ahriman: Exile was released at Christmas 2012 and wasn't available as a paperback until July 2013, and Straken was released at Christmas 2013 and has only been available for a month.

So don't expect Kharn to be sitting on your bookshelf until at least halfway through the year.

I hate this system. Release them at the same time and let the buyers decide for themselves which version they prefer the most.

Day 15: Ahriman - Gates of Ruin.

The Story:
Ahriman, sorcerer lord of the Thousand Sons, seeks the fabled Gates of Ruin, reportedly a safe way out of the Eye of Terror, far from the eyes of the Imperium. But when he finds the Gates of Ruin, he discovers that he has been drawn into a deadly trap. As daemons attack, Ahriman and his followers must draw on all their power and skill if they are to survive.
Read it because:
Misunderstood seeker of knowledge or diabolical Lord of Chaos? A bit of both maybe. Fans of the Ahriman series won't want to miss this latest instalment, as the Sorcerer finds himself snared in a fiendish trap as he and his followers seek to escape the Eye of Terror.

Released on the 15th day with a story about a former member of the XVth Legion. You really had me there Black Library. I'm currently reading Ahriman Sorcerer and I find it somewhat entertaining. No master-piece I'm afraid and I have some small issues with it. John French is a very nice guy though and always replies when I ask him stuff. He uploaded this list some time ago so I imagine this is the secret short story taking place prior to Sorcerer and I guess it ties in with The First Prince as that starts out with one of Ahrimans followers being struck down by daemons. It makes somewhat more sense then.

Day 16: Vengeful Honour.

The Story:
On the war-torn world of Armageddon, the Marines Malevolent and Black Templars come to blows once again. An honour duel is interrupted by the arrival of the monstrous orks, but when the battle ends, either Ballack of the Marines Malevolent or Vorda of the Black Templars will be dead… but by whose hand will the fatal blow be delivered?
Read it because:
The Marines Malevolent are a Space Marine Chapter you love to hate. Arrogant, inhuman, but no less deadly for that. In this story, they must set aside their animosity and fight side by side alongside their BlackTemplar allies, what could possibly go wrong...

Hey it's those annoying guys from that very mediochre novel! :)
