I understand that the old ones either went into deep hiding or were destroyed after the chaos poles on the warhammer fantasy planet collapsed, but what I dont understand is how this new Old One Sotek seems to pop out of nowhere 15,000 years later?
What exactly is Sotek?
If he is an old one why dont the C'tan in the 40k world realize hes around?
to put it bluntly, i have no idea what the hell you're talking about

I think you need to stop smoking things..
40k and Fantasy are two completely different games. The backgrounds are not, in any way, linked, they simply use some similar races and ideas.
And, in fantasy, Sotek is the snake god.. this doesn't neccesarily make him an old one. He's a mystery.
Actually, I've heard somewhere that the Eldar were actually the old ones. They created the Slann, and created the lizardmen to be the servants of the Slann. That's why in Mordheim (if any of you play it), the amazon warband can get things called "star swords" and "sun guantlets". If you look at the new models, it's obvious that a star sword is actually a power sword from 40k, and that a sun guantlet is some kind of laser pistol.
However, I still don't really know what Marcus is talking about, because I haven't heard anything about sotek still being alive.
I really am great, aren't I?
there are two schools of thought,
A) they are diffrent games and are in no way connected
The WHFB world lies within a warp storm on the brink of the eye of terror
the reasoning behind B is that old models for choas had power armour and plasma Pistols.There are also Drawings of CSM in the New choas power books.It falls down when you consider that all of the races crach landed/travels to this world lost their technology and knowledge of who they are.Discovered how to weild chaos magic and have not be rescued by there race.Sigmar is in this instance a Primarch,which may well be true.Except one story makes out he was found by his tribe and another that he was born to the clan chiefs Daughter.It was the slaan and the old ones that build the warp gates,they redate the elves/eldar.
Does anyone know if the South Pole is a warp gate and if so does it have choas hordes?

Does to me. You know, Dark Age of Technology, resorting to feudalism....... just a thought.

I repeat ALL the races not just the humans,the orcs/orks should have there race memoies still and be constructing teleporters and ships,the elves/eldar are still there,the Squats/Dwarfs are running around the hills,and Dark eldar/Dark elves are simalur but also worship slannesh (sometime),not just the humans.Only the humans decayed in to Dark age Technology.Originally posted by LBellouny@Feb 10 2005, 10:57

int eh albion campaign some of the new war gear were blatantly,
the old world is in the EOT, how all teh races are the same as they are in 40k i dont know. The ELdar are not the old ones, though they are the closest race that knows/remembers them. The lizard predate all the other races on the old world though.
WELL SAID, NO MORE SQUATS THEY ARE DEAD GET OVER ITOriginally Posted by artificer
Well except for the Necrons.Originally posted by Deadly Nightshade@Feb 10 2005, 19:54
The Old Ones created pretty much everything including the Eldar
And the Tyranids.
Oh, and the Krell.
