I got a couple of questions about the ending of the SoC.
1) Firstly what happened to the Cult of Slaanesh. As far as i could see they wernt mentioned AT ALL. Seems a bit crap that a new chaos/dark elf army which heaps of people rekon is over the top and powerfull dosent even get mentioned ONCE.
2) How the ***k did Teclis get to the empire to defeat the daemonid legion? i mean, the whole reason that the CoS was formed was b'cos Malekith was landing a HUGE assult on the High Elves. If this huge attack was so big to scare Morathi into re-surfacinf the cult of pleasure then wouldnt Teclis have been busy protecting his home land rather then going off on a 5 second job of clicking his ****en fingers and watching lots of little things go *POOF*. And what happened with Malekiths attack
I don't know personally, but it might be contained with the Darkness Rising book from Black Library, which was an archive of fluff from the Storm of Chaos.
In response to your second question. Teclis came over to gift the chosen of sigmar with the Horse sired from Tyrion's steed and to help the Empire against the tide of chaos. He can defeat the witch king in a magical duel now anyway, as the witch king is weaker since their battle at the finuval plain, and Teclis is stronger.
Tyrion was put in charge of the defence, Ailssin in charge of the fleet and Teclis in helping the old world. Teclis only managed to defeat the daemons so easily because the flow of magic there would have been incredibly strong to give 10,000 daemons life anyway. This makes it easier for him to tear them assunder.
As to the attack by Malakith, nothing is mentioned, because it isn't terribly important. They are not going to conquer Ulthlan just because Teclis is away. The only things the High Elves sent where 300 Sword masters and 1/3 ish of their fleet to stop the Norse. The Cult of Slanesh was busy in Lustria.
Hope this helps

In the end, there was a civil war in Naggaroth between the Cult and the Temple followers, along with other participants including Tomb Kings from the Southeast, Lizardmen from the South, High Elfs and their mannish allies from the East, Chaos from the North, and Dwarfs and Skaven through tunnels in the West.
The Cult of Slaanesh eventually lost, small loss after small loss piling up into big losses. The favoured of Morathi and leader of the Cult forces went insane and was killed by Shadowblade when she stepped out of line too often, but eventually he acted as Malekith's messenger to stop the civil war, leaving the Temple in a dominant position but the Cult still alive and well.
Official fluff from the Druchii.net campaign approved by Gav Thorpe.
Are u saying that the part of the war was brought to Naggaroth, or was there ONLY a civil war there. The way i understand u the toTK's, Lizzies, HE, chaos and scaven were ALL in Nagaroth. Wernt they in the empire? That kinda sucks cos only 1 enemy army has ever gotten onto Nagaroth, and suddenly there were 5 more! I dont like the sound of that.
DURING the Storm Of Chaos the Cult of Slaanesh, led by Morathi, ventured into Lustria to find artifacts of power.
They were beaten by the Lizards and retreated into Naggaroth, with the avenging scalies hot on their heels.
AFTER the Storm of Chaos all hell broke loose in Naggaroth. The Cult fought against the Temple. Lizardmen came up from the South, attacking the fleeing members of the Cult.
The Dwarfs found a series of underground undersea passages into Naggaroth and used their newfangled submarine Ironclad ships to fight there in an attempt to avenge the many wrongs done to them by the Dark Elves.
The Skaven are pretty much everywhere, and decided to take advantage of the confusion by invading.
The High Elves counter-attacked after Malekith's attempted invasion, landing on the shores with allies from Brettonia and the Empire.
Tomb Kings... God knows what they were doing there, to be frank.
Chaos armies allied to the Cult attacked from the North.
then what happened?Originally Posted by Revlid
surely the dark elves where hammered into the ground by all these invading armys...?

What annoys me most with the whole of GW in these campaigns is the lack of progression. Obviously the Empire or any other race cant be utterly destroyed, so many gamers nwould be devastated and many models become worthless, but characters can be killed off, but do it in line with the results, so Archaon dies, keep him in the chaos book if you want (as Vlad Von Carstein is) no one will really care, but the SoC is pointless for gamers as the results dont match the fluff outcome. Which isnt fair to the gamers at all.
Valten should have lived, but I understand it would be hard to work him into fluff generally, as how would he fit into the future of the warhammer world? But at least have it OK, such as he ventured off to fight the fleeing chaos forces and was never seen again type thing. Much better than killed by the Skaven.
Archaon should have been killed by Valten! Another Everchosen can rise another time just as Archaon rose after Asavar Kul etc.
Mannfred should have not have invaded the Empire, too many invading forces if you ask me, have him return to full power, and build him up for a future campaign, or the next VC book, this is what gets me, even after the SoC the world hasnt progressed, everyone knows Mannfred is back, yet in the books he was still killed at Hel Fenn, grow a pair and progress with the story GW!
Grimgor, I dunno, he should have been beaten, if Crom can do it, surely Archaon should be able to, and the Orc book seems to have forgotten about his fight with Crom in its fluff doesnt it.
Karl Franz seems alright, he should have stayed Emperor
Crom should stay as a proper character, but he hasnt, I dont know what happened to him. IMO he should have killed Garagrim, but upon hearing of Archaon's defeat he should have returned to the the north.
