    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,'
    'Yer?'
    'You know that's a crappy planet, attack Armageddon.'
    'Er, ok.'

    Well, I have two questions:

    1. IS THIS TRUE?!
    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.

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

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

    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.
    "Your presence does not surprise me, Assassin. I have known of you ever since your craft entered the Eastern Fringes. Why did I not have you killed? Because your mission and the act you are about to commit proves the truth of all I have ever said or done. I merely punished those who had wronged, just as your false Emperor now seeks to punish me. Death is nothing compared to vindication."
