Just a quick question, whats the deal with Sotek. Is he an Old one? If so, did he not die during the war against chaos and recently returned, or is he an entirely new entity? Also, what happened to him after the war with the skaven?
Et imperator Invocato Diabolus Daemonica Exorcist!
Sotek is an Old One. And to us Lizardmen it is not clear what has happened with the Old Ones. All that is known is that they've left the world, whether they are dead or alive somewhere out there.
But the spawnings continue and there are signs of the continued existance of the Old Ones, especially Sotek.
Nothing happened to him in the wars against the Skaven. He himself wasn't physically present. He did arouse the Cult of Sotek and the lizards and snakes of the jungle to fight the Skaven.
Sotek IS NOT AN OLD ONE. He is a chaos creature the Lizardmen's thirst for vengeance created during the Rise of Sotek. In other words, Sotek is a real god, just like the Four, Sigmar and whatnot - spawned in the Realm of Chaos out of belief in something (like Sigmar's divinity), or by some basic thing (such as change).
The only gods not spawned this way are, to my knowledge, of the Elven pantheon. And Old Ones were not gods, but we all know that ^^
