The first Seminar I attended today was the Power Behind the Golden Throne with Chris Wraight and Dann Abnett.
This was all about the 40k Inquisitor series that Chris Wraight is currently writing, the first being Vaults of Terra: The Carrion Throne.
Chris started of by talking about the difficulties in writing about Terra. Even though Terra is the centre in a lot of stories in both Horus Heresy and 40k, there is not much actual details. As a result of this, Chris has taken inspiration from some of Dans novels like Blood Games, as well as in depth discussions to really iron out the details of not only what life is like on Terra, but also basic things like the landscape ie are there oceans etc. Chris also had a sit down with John French to make sure the Inquisitor series that they are both writing will not be basically same thing.
As with the actual Inquisitor, Chris did not want them to be the “ender of worlds” type, but really one who is truly trying to uncover some of the secrets in the depths of Terra. Dispute this evening seemingly an impossible task for a single Inquisitor, as the time of the Horus Heresy is like a myth to them. So this series will be kind of like a detective story, uncovering clues and really digging out long forgotten truths.
Stay tuned for more updates throughout today :-)
