I will start out by saying that i have not read the Horus Heresy novels.

I would like to ask you, the Warseer community, on what your thoughts are on certain stories. I will use as an example the Horus Heresy, but there are others which may be under threat.

With the Onset of the Horus Heresy book series i have seen huge amounts of readers all talking about these books, what they reveal and other things of that nature.

Am i the only one which thinks that they explain too much?

I loved the heresy simply because every single player had their own version on what they thought happened. Sometimes it was a single terminator, sometimes a squadron, sometimes a guardsmen. One of these 3 distracted Horus to allow the Emperor to give the killing blow.

I think that having 1000 people read one story is nowhere near as interesting as 1000 people having 1000 different stories.

So what do you think? Should stories be explained in this way? Or do you prefer the Grey Area?
