For those who do not know it, Inspiration Friday is a (generally) fortnightly weekly event within its home in the Chaos Space Marines forum, in which a topic is set for members to write short (or long if the muse takes you) fluff/fan-fic pieces about their war bands, characters and models.
And here begins our eleventh challenge of Inspirational Friday 2018: Prophecy
The gods whisper into mortal ears and minds, all too often with promises of power, glory or other desires fulfilled, but also on occasion with words of guidance or warning. They would not see their plans (be they grand or trifling distractions from the greater game) foiled so easily, or they lend their guidance to mortals so those plots might flourish.
Even the Corpse-God, the God-Emperor of mankind has been known to give guidance to the faithful, via his tarot or visions.
Over the next two weeks I would have you write pieces on the subject of prophecy.
From what higher power do these visions come?
Who is the mortal or mortals blessed(? Cursed?) with this guidance?
Does the prophet succeed in interpreting divine will correctly?
And what forces oppose the prophecy?
Why am I posting such a heretical thread here?
Well, was it not the first of your number, your beloved Sigismund who was swayed by the words of a witch?
Is the Emperor’s champion not granted visions upon the eve of war?
...and Inspirational Friday has had some great entries from members of this forum in the past.
IF2018: Prophecy! runs until the
Let us be inspired.
The winner of IF2018: Prophecy! shall claim the Octed amulet:
