What? Two posts in as many days? Yes indeed; once again, Games Workshop have surprised me with the release today of the audio drama Perpetual. The turnaround on this story has been pretty quick and I wasn't expecting it to be available so soon, but here it is in all its glory, complete with a synopsis and some great artwork:
A Horus Heresy audio drama
Escaping from ruined Calth, Oll Persson and his band of refugees are
trapped on a dark, forgotten world. But the enemy draws near, and
immortality may not be enough to survive...
Oll Persson stands apart from the rest of mankind. He is one of the old
ones, one of the undying. One of the Perpetuals. Now, fleeing from the
ruins of Calth with his band of fellow refugees, the vagaries of the
warp have brought him through the backways of time and space to a city
that rests on the edge of oblivion... and no further.
The path has ended
abruptly, and Oll's enemies are finally closing in. Will his
immortality be enough to save him this time?

In this story, I'm primarily playing a character called 'John Grammaticus' and here are some details about him which I'm quoting from the Warhammer Wiki:
was a human operative of the mysterious xenos
organisation known as the Cabal
, and had been genetically altered by them to become what they referred to as a "Perpetual
", a being who was capable of reincarnation and therefore was effectively immortal, much like the Emperor of Mankind
. Also like the Emperor, Grammaticus was a natural psyker
whose main psychic power allowed him to act as a powerful logokine,
a psyker who is able to understand any language, no matter its form or origin, and unleash the innate power of words"
...all for now, more just as soon as it happens!
