MALOGHURST THE TWISTED, Horus Heresy Commission.

O you proud Christians, wretched souls and small,/ Who by the dim lights of your twisted minds/ Believe you prosper even as you fall,/ Can you not see that we are worms, each one/ Born to become the angelic butterfly/ That flies defenseless to the Judgement Throne? Dante Aligheri The true power behind Throne.  Who…

For these sorts of live streams, I like to write up a few show notes. Markers to keep the discussion on topic and remind myself of flashing moments of insight gleaned while in the shower or walking the dog. I thought you’d like to see them, so here they are – the heresy aesthetic! Run…

Return to Isstvan. Phase 2.

The deadline has elapsed. The challenge is over. The dust has settled. Well, that’s what I thought. It seems if you roll a snow ball down a mountain, sometimes, it keeps on rolling.
