Gotrek has returned.
The Slayer whose shame turned him to seek his doom in battle has outlived the death of the Old World, after spending millennia keeping Chaos from the gate.
And it has broken me in a multitude of ways.
To start with, let me explain, I first came across the duo of Gotrek and Felix in September 1992, in the second half of a tale named The Skaven's Claw. Set beneath the City of Nuln, a rip roaring adventure full to the brim with grim bleak humour, and glorious gory swordplay. As I had been reading the dour, bloody (and oddly sexualised) Konrad series, or the hi-lit concepts of the swords and parody classic Drachenfels, finding something more akin to a fantasy Errol Flynn than the gothic grimness that was the GW/Boxtree output. It was not much past that point that I discovered both Wolf Riders and Ignorant Armies, short story collections that held yet more Gotrex and Felix tales, deftly penned by William King. Around there, I discovered Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay and thus, the origins of our heroic pair, how Gotrek and pulled Felix Jaeger from under the horsehoofs of the Militia after, as a young academic, Felix had been caught in the Window Tax Riots. How, Gotrek had once committed a deed so shameful, he had undertaken the Slayers Oath, and had set off into the world to find his doom.
