View Full Version : Aparently, Gork and Mork are embodied in the real world as Eldar...

Well, me and some people were writing on a white board in WH40k club at school, I, being Orks, wrote down 'GORK+MORK=BEST GODS EVAR!' and then the club boffin said 'You know they're embodied by Eldrad and *other guy*, right?' and then went on to say how Eldrad got Ghazghkull to attack Armageddon, basically by going
'Hey, Ork,'
'You know that's a crappy planet, attack Armageddon.'
'Er, ok.'

Well, I have two questions:

2. Who is the other Eldar guy, I forget his name, anyone have any idea?

I woud suggest that the simple concept of 'subterfuge' is relevant here. That is to say it is possible for Eldrad to trick the ork warlord in question without the being the embodiment of Gork or Mork, or something equally... silly, at least to me.

Erm. Rubbish, basically.

18-03-2005, 19:43
Oh, it is all ********, good.

Any ideas who the other guys is?

I'm just surprised that this thread didn't start off with:

"A redshirt told me that..."

Well, guess you've only got to like the game product, not the back story. It is, after all, 'fluff' for a reason... ;)

dunno, but the eldar farseers do look into the future to engineer whats best for their race, as eldrad did get gazghull to go to armageddon, its in the eldar book, and iayden knew the 'nids were coming, but chose to hold their ground

*closes down geek mode :D*

Eldrad got Ghazghkull to attack Armageddon, basically by going
'Hey, Ork,'
'You know that's a crappy planet, attack Armageddon.'
'Er, ok.'

There is a grain of truth to this. Eldrad basically manipulated events resulting in Ghazghkull attacking Armageddon. Basically, the Eldar intervened in internal Ork politics, removing a powerful Ork Warlord who was much more anti-Eldar than Ghazghkull. Then Ghazghkull took advantage of the new space at the top, and the rest, as they say, is history.

So the Ork attack on Armageddon was part of a deliberate Eldar policy to divert Orkish aggression away from the Craftworlds, but neither the Orks nor the humans suspected it.
