Yeah I hate this shit

The thought of 1000 people, hell usually 1/10 of that being able to pacify an entire planet is beyond ludacris.

I would have accepted if it was just 6-7k but for a far reaching chapter with crusades everywhere, 10+1 or 2 companies seems unlikely.

Salamanders are black dudes- the people of Noctrune have dark skin from the environment like Africa. It's just the gene-seed of the Salamanders mutates them, gives them cracked, thick skin, and turns it jet black.

They exist, yeah, but their empire of eternal 80's hair metal design became Tyranid food, and because GW insists that they were a major grimdark design clash (unlike Tau), they're just another Abhuman remnant that gets a pass with the IG, if only so people have something to do with their ex-Squat armies

Squats are the XFL of 40k races

Squats should have appealed to the manga crowd if they wanted to live.

The indicator of a good chaplain is how close you need to get to them before you realize they are a loyalist. That way they can get nice and close to any Chaos Space Marines before yelling "REPENT MOTHER FUCKER" and bashing them in the face

>>44904358
I feel like the black Templars have to be around 10000 astartes minimum for this whole eternal crusade thing to work

That "Tau is anime" shit needs to die out.

Yeah, sure, the Tau are all collectively running around in O-Yoroi inspired armor, wearing insignias that look a shit-ton like Japanese clan insignias, and fielding mechs.

However, in comparison to the fucking Eldar that is NOTHING.
The Eldar run around with katanas (Supernaturally sharp obviously) and shuriken guns doing crazy martial arts shit, have straight up manga-esque hair fuckery going on, they wield mechas that, unlike the Tau, also engage in martial arts dickery.

BL ruined everything. The Emperor, all the primarchs and the whole of the Great Crusade it nothing but a massive chaotic evil fuck-up, because if M41 is grimderp then M31 has to be grimderp too. Everyone has to do the most fucked up things and they throw in super good aliens and people to get killed just so that the Imperium would look extra evil.

If only someone would have realized the impact of 40k's grimderp if 30k has actually been enlightened and well meaning period of time full of progress and reason, brought down by a series of unfortunate events and Chaos fuckery, and finished off by 10,000 years of human nature taking its course.

For all the people bitching about Squats I expected to see 3rd party space dwarf armies all over the place. It's kind of funny how I don't, though.

Wow like every single item in this thread is a retcon I'm pissed about. Even the squats, who were before my time.

Shoutout to the oldcrons-- there are aspects of the newcrons I like but overall it was a major turn for the worse.

The retconned BT chapter size is another one. I don't even fucking like the templars. It's one more change that makes little or no sense as either setting fiction or as a game mechanic.
>>
>>44908359
Oldcrons can and do still exist in universe, and still work very well as a concept even with Newcron fluff. Newcron fluff allows for people to actually flesh out their armies and characters rather than being railroaded into having all the same personality builds. It also fleshes out how their society worked, which is kind of necessary when you're a major player on the galactic playing field. You can do "super-secret-totally-unknown" races well (like the Rak'Gol) but if they're a major part of your setting, you need to flesh them out and make them more than a one-dimensional boogeyman (like the Rak'Gol).
>>
>>44903875
Not a retcon but the whole citizens aren't allowed to know about chaos thing I get the reasoning behind it but I feel that after 100000 years it would be impossible to keep it a secret .

I suppose you might be able to hold the knowledge off for a while by isolating those planets where its widespread but that will only work for a few thousand years

Depending on the depiction of the marine, many times loyalists are so fucking scary looking and covered in skulls that you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference.

I would imagine that space marines IRL would be pretty intimidating, some chapters being so spooky to the average human that there's no real way to know if a given marine will rip your spine out through your ass and laugh or rip your spine out through your ass and laugh but only if you're an alien or heretic.

Although I guess it might be easier to tell legit chaos marines by them having auras of dark OH GOD WHAT THE FUCK and pestilent miasmas surrounding their equipment and daemons.

Give me more biomechanical horror than you can shake a stick at.

You need to read the books that happen prior to chaos. The first few books talk about the glory of the imperium, but nothing like that can last forever, equal and opposite.

Who? I dont know everything about the timeline, but I cant think of one instance of them adding a backstory to someone that fucks with the lore of another character?
>>
>>44907898
They started with good pirmarchs. But since they had stuff like "Angron is really the hulk" the writers had to do "We've got to flesh him out, distance him from that character. I have this idea for brain damaging nails." We've seen some of those flesh-outs handled good, like Magnus, and handled poorly, like Angron.
It can really take away from the balsy no-holds-barred state of a character who's supposed to be going full-throttle-ahead like a glorious madman that you can't but like to root for.
I like the angle of Emp making a deal with the RuinousP. He's a human, shouldn't a human be able to put one over on the matter of a crooked contract? Cheat the devil? Trick a trickster-god? Clearly it all went wrong, but the basis of the RuinP trying to cheat a cheater should still be something likeable.
>>
>>44912831
It does. we just joined the story after the good. The best falls happen from the greatest heights.
>>
>>44912903
The nails just added to me liking him. "I'm rage for rage's sake" is boring. "I cant help but rage constantly and im forever in constant pain so its a vicious cycle" is way more interesting. Plus Angron is King Beast
>>
>>44912968
It's more interesting, but it also doesn't make any fucking sense if you zoom out.

Why the fuck would the Emperor let a degenerative mental cripple exist, let alone make his entire legion of super soldiers just like him?
>>
>>44912917
So if there was ever an end times for 40k, the imperium of man would win to bring back equality then it would become another golden age and then fall once more so on forever? How is that an equal and opposite for the other races?
>>
>>44913000
nice trips. I think the explained it that the nails were tech he didnt understand? Or desu they are what helped shaped his son into an adult. OR its bc emps is a fuckboy who had the parenting capability of Casey Anthony.
>>
>>44913032
There isnt going to be an end times... And with a story that has multiple "main characters" the pendulum isnt always back in forth. Look at ASOIAF, some people never get back up and thats good for another character. An entire imperium full of Mary Sues would be the dullest.

you know it bae xx
>>
>>44913063
That's why it's part of the overarching problem of the HH.

None of those answers make any sense, especially him not understanding the tech. He engineered the fucking Primarchs, even with the help of the Ruinous Powers (which is dumb in it's own way but slightly more acceptable).

The whole thing turned Emps into a fucking retarded, and Angron is a sympathetic but completely nonsensical character.

The World Eaters were always described as doing the implant thing, since before the Primarchs existed - pic related. Angron's implants specifically, and his whole gladiator-slave backstory, came from Index Astartes:

>However it came to pass, it is known that Angron was discovered by a slaver who chanced upon the bleeding figure of the Primarch, surrounded by scores of alien corpses, high in the northern mountains. History does not record to what race these aliens belonged, but many Imperial scholars believe them to have been Eldar, perhaps attacking the Primarch with some foreknowledge of what the future held for him. Angron had been grievously wounded, but was alive and, seeing that all his wounds were to the fore, the slaver realised that Angron must be a formidable warrior. Taken as a slave, Angron was nursed back to health and bio-neural implants were surgically grafted to his cerebral cortex.

>Relics from the Dark Age of Technology, these would boost a warrior's aggression and strength in battle and turn him into a frenzied killer. Angron was taken to the planet's capital where his obvious potential as a gladiator was soon realised and he was bought by the largest and most patronised arena in the city. The cells below the arena were home to several thousand cyber gladiators, and Angron now took his place amongst them.
>>
>>44910835
Citizens generally know that there are bad things out there that will try to ruin them and corrupt their souls. A great many are aware of the general existence of Chaos as a concept, and the fact that faith in the Emperor can protect them from this unknown nightmare fuel.

They just aren't permitted to know what those things specifically are. They aren't allowed to know who or what the Chaos Gods are, how Daemons work (Daemons are generally known as a concept, as there are multiple famous artistic works that explicitly depict and Imperial hero fighting back and vanquishing a Daemon, including the famous portrait of Sanguinius besting and vanquishing a Bloodthirster), and what their symbols/cult tendencies are. They're just taught, "There is Chaos, it's big and horrible, don't inquire further or you'll get sent to Hell (And we might send you there ourselves)."

>Knowing how effective at boosting a warrior's prowess the psycho surgery could be, Angron ordered the Techmarines of the World Eaters to duplicate the process, using the implants in his head as a template. However, the art of this technology's construction had long since been forgotten and the early attempts at reproducing it were unreliable, often triggering uncontrollable and unstoppable psychotic episodes in the recipients. Eventually, the Techmarines were able to construct working implants that heightened aggression and strength, grafting them to whole companies of World Eaters Space Marines. Initially, the enhanced companies were highly successful, quickly gaining a fearsome reputation as terror troops. No mercy was offered by the World Eaters, only bloody death at the end of a chain-axe. The Liber Malum speaks of whole systems surrendering wholesale rather than face the wrath of the World Eaters. But it was only a matter of time before the Legion's use of psycho surgery on its recruits became widely known. Following the infamous Ghenna Scouring, where an entire planet's population were butchered in a single night of bloodshed, the World Eaters were censured by the Emperor and commanded to cease the use of implants.

>Angron paid little heed to this and ordered the work of the Techmarines to continue, until almost every Space Marine in the Legion had undergone the ritual surgery. Blood rites became an increasingly important part of the Legion's heritage as their slaughter continued across the galaxy, and it became common practice for Space Marines to compete in the number of enemy skulls they could take in battle. Many of Angron's brother Primarchs voiced their concerns to the Emperor, and now the Master of Mankind made a fatal error. He dispatched Horus, the most trusted of all the Primarchs, to confront Angron and bring him back into line. Horus was a master psychologist and, unbeknownst to the Emperor, had already been corrupted by the Chaos powers. In Angron he saw a warrior consumed by bitterness and resentment and it was a simple matter for Horus to feed that bitterness, emphasising the Emperor's betrayal, painting him as a weakling in need of replacing. He told Angron exactly what he wanted to hear and, when Horus eventually betrayed the Emperor, beginning the first galactic civil war, Angron's World Eaters marched beside the Sons of Horus.
>>
>>44913193
I dont get how Angron is nonsensical. They needed a chaos chapter dedicated to Khorne, so they created a character that would be the embodiment of Khorne to turn his marines into it. I think the overarching story of the Imperium is that Emp is a huge fuckup, he abandoned his real goals to achieve godhood and everything fell to shit when he did that(thats when he named Horus Warmaster)

RR Martins series is dog shit and about as grim dark and "equal and opposite" as a dog licking a lollipop.

Some people said WHFB would never get squatted (removed then reinstated in a much less pleasing form) and it did.

As it stands, nearly every character is a mary sue and that's because the plot is stuck in constant stasis.

Shit can't be equal and opposite if it only rolls one way. There was what, the age of Terra which was starting to look up, followed by the DAoT which saw our golden age then fall. Then we've got the reunification and great crusade eras which is great, then the heresy and eventual age of apostasy, followed by the age of the imperium. By my counting, that's 2-3 for positive time frames and the rest not, showing the "equal and opposite" views of the 40k universe as boulder dash concerning humans. It does fit in with 40ks grimdark setting though.
>>
>>44913434
I'm more pissed at the huge circlejerk over Thrall and the wholesale slaughter of EVERY single villain thats ever existed. Literally the only two left we havent killed are Aszhara and Sargeras. Beaten into retreat is a better story mechanic than murdering 3 main lore characters per patch. Plus the potention for warlords of draenor just squandered, its a shame to be honest.

>I dont get how Angron is nonsensical. They needed a chaos chapter dedicated to Khorne, so they created a character that would be the embodiment of Khorne to turn his marines into it.
Because it removes that plot point and the fact that he was human.
All the primarchs were human, albeit super/superior versions.
Instead of an unstable person whose life shaped and defined him and who ultimately chose to walk down the path of worshiping khorne because that's who he felt was an embodiment of, we've got some psychopath that was psychotic not for his own shortcomings and faults, but because he's got plot-device nails in the head fucking him up. They don't simply aid in him becoming a fuck up, they come across as virtually being the entire reason. Angrons entire lore is shit upon.

The ONLY primarch thats a whiny teenager is Horus (maybe Magnus). Everyone else either had severe mental issues (probably due to being abandoned on planets like Nostromo), were tempted by chaos and found wanting, or just liked their brothers more than their dad.

Horus - I'll give ya whiny bitch, but he did die and was brought back to life by chaos, so that amy have helped
Lorgar - Religious zelot that found out the REAL gods happen to be shitty, doesnt change the fact that they're the REAL gods he was looking for
Angron&Curze - Grew up in really shitty enviroments and it changed them
Mortarion & Fulgrim - Liked their brothers more than their father

>As for ASOIAF being dogshit, you're entitled to your opinion, but the vast majority of people disagree.
Nah anon, nah. The vast majority of people enjoy the television show which has taken liberties with the source material and now moved entirely away from them. A vastly smaller amount (which I'm apart of) enjoy the books, yet acknowledge that they're pretty weak as a fantasy setting. I'll alter what I said earlier and concede the setting is grimdark.

>How is a getting Terra out of the dark ages, conquering most of the galaxy and recovering his lost children just a "positive time frame?"
Because the events happened in a time frame that was one continuous line. He created his early SM, reunited earth, reunited the sol system once the warp storms dissipated, set off on his crusade and found his children. There wasn't any negative aspects/time-frames that transpired in between those events. That's all a steady rise upwards from the precipitous downfall, yet stagnates and barely reaches half of what the golden age achieved before it all starts to role downwards once more. If this were equal and opposite there'd be a fairly more-or-less equal set of pinnacles and declines.
>>

I agree, I feel like WC3 Sylvanas wouldve shot him in his mouth the second he got sassy. I do agree with her character development of raising dead bodies as new forsaken, but everyone should hate her for it.

I couldnt disagree more with you about ASOIAF, aside from him going overboard on the character descriptions a bit, I really enjoy them and think they're one of the strongest fantasy that's come out since Tolkien(which isnt really fair to compare any modern fantasy writer to).

There doesnt need to be hiccups during the rise for the fall to be great. The Golden Age wasnt supposed to be a benchmark, but a long ago ideal.Plus, you're forgetting that the Imperium arent the only characters in the 40k story. The Imperiums fall is a rise for everyone else. It's all give and take. We're literally watching the rise of the tyranids and the Tau in real time.
>>
>>44913841
Gonna have to disagree with you. Sylvanas is smart enough to know when to play servant, hell actual loyalty to the Horde being developed over a better written Wrath would have been ideal. Furthermore I'm not too fond of her raising new forsaken in general.

Also i'd argue that there aren't really good guys in WoW. If there are, it ain't the Ally or Horde and I don't think they ever should be outside of maybe the Spacegoats and Tauren and a few named characters.

A lot of the time, isn't it just the case of a new author being ignorant of previous lore?

They went from being a tragic race, cursed to be born on a living hell of a planet, betrayed by cruel gods and condemned to be metal husks appearing on battlefields and marching in unison towards an incomprehensible goal, caring nothing about losses, and disappearing for inexplicable reasons, regardless of whether they were moments away from annihilating their enemy.

looks like this is a case of a new anon being ignorant of previous lore. the black templars are breaking no laws. while on crusade a space marine chapter is allowed by imperial law to exceed the 1000 marine limit. the black templars are always on crusade (they legitimately are and arent just saying it as a loophole) so they are allowed greater numbers

BL books can be thrown away right off as trash. Rulebooks never refer to these "gods" as gods of Chaos or dark gods. Other races have their own gods and godlike beings.

>>
>>44916551
>proper discussion with carnac

Is such a thing even possible?

Where were all you faggots before BL decided the Emperor is shit and couldn't do anything before signing a pact with the dark gods? I don't remember anyone claiming he was a Chaos worshiper then. But now it's total proof that the fluff has always existed.
>>
>>44916603
I thought he only made a pact with them to help create his kids and nothing more. Is BL claiming otherwise now?
>>
>>44916559
So because an Abrahamic god doesn't exist in 40k, that means the Emperor became the Emperor of the Imperium because this nonexistent god, actually gods in plural, willed it so?
That's some SJW tier mental gymnastics.

>>44916603
But that never happened. It was only about the Primarchs.
Should we go back to the old fluff, where the Emperor almost got possessed by Chaos in the fight with "Horus"?

>he only made a pact with them to help create his kids
He never did that, new fluff is shit.
>>
>>44916603
You think BL just comes up with what they do? Ideas like Perpetuals and Omegon were ideas in GW's vault that they told the BL writers to write them in. HH has a tight grip on the HH and nothing enters it without their say.

So by that thought, the Emperor being a oathbreaker and a theft was always a GW idea and that quote refers to the Chaos Gods who elevated him to be the Master of Mankind.
>>
>>44904440

in which book did it say that?
>>
>>44916632
I bet anytime you read something that mentions "by will of the gods" you immediately assume it's chaos and a rip of 40k don't you?

>>
>>44916632
>because this nonexistent god, actually gods in plural, willed it so
Quite the opposite. This line simply reminds the reader that this world isn't related to his own. There are no gods familiar to modern man. It's fantasy version of our distant future. Given how fortune and good luck is often attributed to nameless gods or spirits, these gods are just a figure of speech.

You commit the CS Goto fallacy. A classic one.

1- Cs Goto does not write HH fiction. HH fiction is heavily monitored and edited by GW.
2-GW tightened its editorial grip on BL in recent years so you won't have authors breaking the canon like he did.

Gw in recent years used BL to recton the fluff in the setting when they were unable to do so in the rulebooks. For example, the cutting down of Black Templar numbers which GW ordered Guy Haley to do.

Does that mean C'tan being behind everything and then getting retconned to shards was alwso always their idea from the get-go? That Be'lakor not existing in 40k and then being behind everything was their idea all along?

I know, right? You tell them, anon.

Do these guys really think GW would let a freelance author change a crucial element in the setting wily nilly? Hell no. GW wanted the Emperor to be thief who robbed the Chaos Gods of their power, and they used that McNeil and his book to push that idea.

To claim otherwise is to concede that Graham McNeil has more power over the setting than the guys at GW.

BL hired Goto. Doesn't matter if he didn't write HH garbage. He still wrote for them, which is a stain on their track record and calls into question how much validity and control GW actually has over BL.

But the only gods the Emperor have dealt and interacted with before after the HH are the Chaos Gods. The other gods are dead, missing, or don't give a damn about mankind.

Considering that the retconning of the oldcron happened in stages. Yeah?

>That Be'lakor not existing in 40k and then being behind everything was their idea all along?

Outside Be'lakor helping Abaddon out, he didn't do anything much important. His appearance in 40K happened to push the model in both 40K since he wa going to be pushed in WHFB End Times too. It's a market decision that's irrelevant because.....

The Emperor being a thief has no market appeal and was done because it's an idea they liked.

It's a wonderful Promethean story in which the Emperor stole fire from the gods to give it to mankind. Back then and now, he suffered for it and continues to suffer.

No, the novel said he stole power and knowledge from the gods. The Chaos Gods made him a god in exchange he promised them something only he can deliver.

A True Perpetual like Alivia and Olly.

The Emperor and Alivia travelled to Molech to use the "Gateway to the Gods". He entered the Gateway and met the Chaos Gods and bargained with them. Their power and knowledge would he his if he submitted to their terms.

The Emperor "agreed" and took the power of the Chaos Gods. Alivia then guided him out of the Realm of Chaos into reality. The first thing he attempted to do was to seal the Gateway to the Gods but he failed because to draw close to the gods he betrayed would destroy him. He assigned poor Alivia to guard the Gateway as he left.

He returned many years later with the Great Crusade and fortified the planet. He mind erased the Primarchs that were with him on the planet and created the Fire Angel to kill anyone who attempted to learn the truth of this planet.

I admit I haven't read the latest HH books, but as far as I know we have no explanation on how Perpetuals actually work. Nor has BL expanded upon the Emperors origin.
Shamans could still be normal Perpetuals and they sacrificed themselves to create the Emperor. The Perpetuals in HH could be unique and stronger individuals who managed to keep their powers.
>>
>>44917312
Might be Shamans, might be the Cabal, or perhaps it might be Be'lakor.

>>44917312
In the old fluff shamans were reborn through the warp like all powerful psykers, like the Eldar (fuck off, Gav). They saw the coming of Chaos and knew this cycle would be coming to an end. They committed ritual suicide and pooled their souls into one body where they could live as long as possible and continue to guide humanity. Now you have perpetuals that can just regenerate/be reborn, so clearly it's not impossible, making what the shamans did seem a bit weird. And there's no reason for the shamans to pool themselves into one body if several exists.

If the Emperor is just a perpetual, then what's his mission and what's his goal? He'd just be a dude, even if immortal, who does what he wants. Why is he the top dog over all the other perpetuals?

In the old days gods could punish their followers by removing their powers or limiting them. Even Be'lakor in Storm of Chaos was punished by his hubris to forever crown the Everchosen of the gods and impotently rage over his plight. Now, by giving their power to an individual, they're basically signing it off for good and trusting the other person to hold up their end of the deal. Be'lakor fucked them over and they can't do anything to stop him. Emperor, apparently, took their powers and ran, and they can't do anything about it. So what threat are they, when anyone they give power to can just keep it and the gods can't stop them?

If GW wants me to take this new fluff hook, line and sinker, they better explain what the new rules and regulations are, because without having any idea what's going on or how anything related to anything, it's a mess. But they will never explain it, because market appeal and IP.

I refuse to accept the Ecclesiarchy took all it's teachings from Logar's daddy worship.
His teachings were throughly censored and destroyed. Literally nothing should have survived.
Coupled with the Ecclesiarchy would have been erradicated once the Marines and Custodes got wind of where the books had come from, not just ignore it.
And also again, the Ecclesiarchy wasn't anything special, there was thousands of God-Emperor religions popping up and falling down constantly. They were just the one to survive and thrive. Literally nothing about that suggests they Had help from a book that the Emperor personally saw burned like so many Harry Potter novels at a Catholic Church.

>99% of Perpetuals can't be reborn anymore
>kill themselves to create the Emperor

And the Emperor can fuck with the Chaos gods because he is the strongest psyker in the world. He is untouchable in the real world. Unlike Daemons or other Warp entities, he doesn't have to interact with the Chaos gods in the warp. That's why the Great Crusade was so rushed and that's why he clings on to life on the Golden Throne. The Chaos gods are too strong in the Warp nowadays. But humanity achieving their psychic evolution, creating the human webway and suppressing religion in the majority of humanity was his way to weaken them, so he could once again fight them in the Warp.

Apart from minor changes, the Perpetuals and the Emperor arcs don't contradict or entirely retcon the original Shaman Emperor fluff.

>the strongest psyker in the world

Who can't be the master of mankind without the will of the gods.

Still doesn't explain how Be'lakor is able to be untouched by the dark gods as well.

>Unlike Daemons or other Warp entities, he doesn't have to interact with the Chaos gods in the warp.

But all other mortal followers of the dark gods can be fucked over by the dark gods just fine.

>That's why the Great Crusade was so rushed and that's why he clings on to life on the Golden Throne. The Chaos gods are too strong in the Warp nowadays.

>>44917840
>Still doesn't explain how Be'lakor is able to be untouched by the dark gods as well.

How is Be'lakor untouched? They nerfed his power but couldn't take all of it or punish him further because he escaped into Real Space.

What's different between fantasy Be'lakor and 40K Be'lakor is that fantasy Be'lakor was banished into the Warp by the Elven Vortex shortly after he offended the Chaos Gods. Fantasy Be'lakor was then was tortured and denied a mind and a form. 40K Be'lakor escaped their wrath and wasn't punished (except for the draining of his power to ascend other mortals). He chilled in real space until the Chaos Gods forgot about him.
>>
>>44918070
>But all other mortal followers of the dark gods can be fucked over by the dark gods just fine.

Also is AoS lore permitted?

Because the Chaos Gods in AoS spent an entire age trying to destroy Archaon but their efforts failed. He is now as much as their enemy as he is their ally.

Archaon is the guy fucking over the Chaos Gods by turning their servants against them and turning his blade against his own patrons whenever it suits him.

So there is precedent to mortal servants of Chaos being headaches for the Chaos Gods.
>>
>>44918070
If the gods had any power, they would have stripped him of their gifts. If they can do it to mortals, they can do it to princes no matter where they go. You don't stop being a daemon just because you're in real space and you never lose your contact with the warp.

But the gods couldn't stop him and couldn't strip him of his powers. He was so beyond them that they decided to never make any other undivided prince ever again because they can't control them.

You do know that powerful daemon princes can become minor Chaos Gods in their own right? (picture related). They do that by severing their ties to the Chaos Gods. Be'lakor is powerful enough to hide himself from their wrath inside Real Space. Mortals (outside of Abaddon) can't tell the Chaos Gods to fuck themselves like Daemon Princes.

The Chaos Gods couldn't get at him directly so they took most of his power and spread to their newly raised daemon princes.

>He was so beyond them that they decided to never make any other undivided prince ever again because they can't control them.

The problem with Be'lakor is that he sworn to four sires. This means as long as the Chaos Gods are divided, then they have no direct control over him. However, they can influence him actions so much that he practically has no freewill. His actions mirror the Great Game of Chaos and he is blind to this fact.

I think the promblem here is that you thought that the Chaos Gods are omnipotent and omniscient.

You mean people worship them as gods, sure. Many princes and daemons rule worlds and are worshiped as gods. Even the C'tan were worshiped as gods. And the Emperor.

And your picture says "it said". I find it amusing that a god is being used as a mere vehicle upgrade.

>This means as long as the Chaos Gods are divided, then they have no direct control over him.

How so? Just take back what you gave him. One god doing it shouldn't require the backing of the other 3.

>However, they can influence him actions so much that he practically has no freewill. His actions mirror the Great Game of Chaos and he is blind to this fact.

And other pieces of fluff says he's free of the gods and beyond their control. So which one is correct?

>I think the promblem here is that you thought that the Chaos Gods are omnipotent and omniscient.

No, I thought the fluff that says the gods give and remove gifts from daemons and mortals was actually true, giving the gods power over them. But clearly they can't do shit once power has been given to someone, just hope the person upholds their end of the deal.

Because it's not just a matter of picking a direction and going there. The warp has mappable paths that are safer or calmer. These define where travel is possible and what locations are strategically valuable in the same way that trade winds and ocean currents defined it during the Age of Sail. Sure, you could not follow the safe paths and try to take a shortcut, but you'll probably end up in a warp storm or lost and blinded with half your crew missing.

There are no mere mortals. The Emperor id a god and Be'lakor, as the audiobook "The First Prince" says about him, is a being on the second tier of godhood.

It wasn't something they "believed" (unless there's another source of behind-the-scenes information on the tweest that I'm not aware of), simply an idea they had, which is easy enough to imagine. And maybe not even necessarily with Alpharius or any specific Primarch in mind; perhaps the concept was just lying around, unattached to a particular character, until Abnett came to suggest his own ideas for Legion and Merrett decided Alpharius was the best candidate for it.

So, help clarify this: is Perturabo genuinely autistic? Putting aside the compulsion /tg has with this word.

He ended up with the worst job of the crusade. He was well rounded enough to pursue a lifestyle outside of war mongering. Was a builder and statesman. Made a bizarre, almost uncharacteristic purge upon inheriting a legion. What's his case?

Nigger it's the same fucking story as with the shamans. Just replace Shamans with Perpetuals. As far as the current HH books are concerned, they retconed shamans into being named Perpetuals, thrown in a few stronger ones that can respawn on their own and explained how the Emperor created the primarch. You are just autisticly hanging onto every word I said to sperg out. Fuck you
>My mental dexterity isn't enough for these gymnastics.
These gymnastics are supported by the GW fluff. The Emperor was strong enough to fuck with Chaos gods in real space, but he is too weak to face them in the Warp.

Both the Emperor and Be'lakor fled into real space to escape the wrath of the Chaos Gods. Since he has no ties with them, he escaped unscathed. Be'lakor escaped but the Chaos Gods managed to drain the majority of his power since he was still connected to them because he is their firstborn son.

tl;dr The Chaos Gods have limited influence on Real Space. It's the perfect hiding place.

So, perpetuals are powerful psykers who can transfer their soul from body to body now?

But it was the dark gods that gave him the ability to do that.

I wonder why only some primarchs were made perpetuals and not all or none.

Nowhere has it been stated that all shamans are also psykers, only that they could reincarnate. The same thing Perpetuals can do

Translation: Fuck you, that's why.

I want to know why the dark gods can't sever their connection to the warp and just escape to real space. Surely they're even more powerful than the emperor or be'lakor.

>I mean the dataslate of Be'lakor makes it clear that Be'lakor spent the majority of his time in the galaxy trying to erase his trail and hide his presence.

Not him.

Alivia in " Vengeful Spirit" states that should the Emperor draw near to the beings he stole his power from, he would die. It's the reason he couldn't close the Gateway to the Gods.

>It's the reason he couldn't close the Gateway to the Gods.

So have someone else do it.

Can't wait to see how they explain him surviving the confrontation with Horus and the 4 gods backing him. I'm guessing they retcon him just getting his powers zapped and being nothing but a limp dick that Horus trashes about before Pius saves his life and then they cover it all up, putting him on the throne as a figurehead who actually has no power at all nor any bearing on the astronomican, astropaths, etc.
>>
>>44920251
>I want to know why the dark gods can't sever their connection to the warp and just escape to real space.

Because they are purely Warp beings? Daemon Princes retain their connection to reality making them manifest easier into real space and the Emperor was and is a material being.

Though in the WHFB End Times, Slaanesh herself attempted to exit the Realm of Chaos and walk on the Old World. Not sure if it's relevant though. A Chaos God leaving the Warp would have his belongings pillaged and trashed like what happened when Slaanesh went missing in AoS. His house and realm were seized by his brothers. What's left is a tiny spot where his greater daemons fight over its rulership.

>Do point me to the part where it says he's doing it to stop the dark gods from taking away his powers or that it actually had any bearing on whether or not they can do it.

Why would the most powerful prince known for his egoism and boundless arrogance attempt to erase himself from history? It makes no sense otherwise.

I am going to speculate.

Horus will beat the crap out of the Emperor. The Emperor would be powerless against Horus who is basically empowered into being the Emperor's kryponite. Horus, being all arrogant and assured of his victory, will hold back from killing the Emperor.

Suddenly Olly will teleport in using Anathme and stand between Horus and the Emperor. Olly will deliver a message to the Emperor. A single word.

The Emperor will cry out this word in an ancient and reality rending language. He will scream the word. MURDER!.

The utterance of the word will banish the Chaos Gods' power from Horus temporarily and render him vulnerable to the Emperor's attack. You know the rest of the story.

Yet the daemon primarchs have hard time manifesting, while smaller princes are more capable of it.

The Daemon Primarchs are busy with the Great Game and doing their own things. It's not about having a hard time manifesting, they just don't want to.

Be'lakor being a guy with vision and not giving a fuck about what the Chaos Gods want, manifests where he pleases.

Then why do you even care?

>One day Be'lakor will share the fate of the C'tan

Be'lakor is forever. Considering that he plays a vital role in the 40K End Times (HERLAD OF THE END TIMES) and Abaddon's chief daemonic majordomo (who is secretly behind his ascension), he will not be going anywhere soon. It's a sure thing that he will feature in more Black Legion and Chaos lore as the years go by. Get hype.

>So, it's all her fault then.


Yeah, but to be fair, drawing near the gate for her is extremely painful. Every bad and painful thought and memory are relived and made many folds more painful. She will die in agony and the gate will be sealed not closed forever.

Yes, carnac, I'm sure he is. Just like the four remaining C'tan.
>>
>>44920838
Only at the End Times/Age of Ending did Abaddon convince them all of them except Magnus to join him. He bribed them, impressed them, or threatened to join him. They did not join out of the blackness of their hearts.

This explained in the Black Legion supp and the Night Lords Omnibus also goes on how disconnected the Daemon Primarchs are from reality.
>>
>>44920875
Yes, join. But without weakening the barrier between real space and the warp, there's little hope of this daemonic host ever joining the battle. That's exactly the purpose of the Crimson Path.

Forget to add that the Crimson Path as overall strategy of the 13th Black Crusade. The daemon Primarchs just joined on board with the rest massive daemon tide at Abaddon's beck and call.

Previously, they Pert, Mort, Magnus, and Angron all managed to wage their own campaigns on the Imperium. But those only last until they are banished, get bored, or returned by the Chaos Gods to the Great Game.

The Emperor entered a pact with the Chaos Gods for forbidden knowledge (IIRC the creation of souls) to create the Primarchs. Whatever the deal, it was so good the Chaos Gods paid him with the knowledge in advance.

The Emperor then ran off with the power like the cheeky bastard he is, denying the Chaos Gods whatever he had promised them in turn and royally pissing them off.
