Today, the Black Library brings us an audio drama of a Chapter Master beset by enemies – can Gabriel Seth survive?

If you’ve been waiting to get caught-up on your fill of Black Library back-stories and lore then now is the time of year to jump in. Running from December 1st until December 24th, Black Library will have something to read, listen to, or just check out for all things Games Workshop. You can grab them individually or pick up the whole thing as part of the Advent Calendar Subscription.

Today’s story is an audio drama. In it Liam Neeson Gabriel Seth, Chapter Master of the Flesh Tearers is beset upon by “many enemies” which I assume means the whole thing starts with an “Almost Got ‘im” style meeting of Gabriel Seth’s very own Rogues Gallery that ends with an Eversor Assassin bursting in on the scene into what is surely a grimdark trap.

Look, I just want everything to be Batman the Animated Series. Is that so wrong? At any rate, don’t miss the previous advent stories, which you’ll find linked below.

 The Assassination of Gabriel Seth$3.99

 

Gabriel Seth, Chapter Master of the Flesh Tearers, has made many enemies in his long years defending the Imperium – and now they plot against him, planning his death. But Seth will not be taken down so easily…

LISTEN TO IT BECAUSE
It’s a new Flesh Tearers tale from Andy Smillie, and brings his usual blend of poetic prose and frenetic action to a very personal battle that will define the Chapter going forward.

THE STORY
For many long years, Gabriel Seth has led the Flesh Tearers to war. Master of a dwindling Chapter, he has made many enemies in his unceasing battle to keep his warriors alive – and now those enemies conspire against him, luring him to a remote world in order to end his leadership and life in the most violent and bloody way possible; Gabriel Seth is to be assassinated. But can even an Eversor Assassin kill one of the deadliest warriors in the entire Imperium?

Written by Andy Smillie.
Running time: 23 minutes. Performed by John Banks, Tim Bruce, Steve Conlin and Andrew Wincott.

I’m just saying, Gabriel Seth sounds like the name of a character who would have a certain set of skills.

  • SilentPony

    As a Flesh Tearers player, I fully admit Seth is a complete tool and the worst. But damned if I don’t love him!

  • Evil Otto

    Turns out the attempt just pissed him off even more.

  • Good story, expected results, but really well produced.
