If Khorne hates Slaanesh so much, why doesn't he just go to her world and kill her?
too busy being a paraplegic sociopath
also if you weren't into all the hedonistic sadistic deranged cruel fucked up shit slaanesh was into would you want to enter her magical realm
The chaos gods don't exist in the physical world, and don't follow the logic of physical beings.
For Khorne to be able to "kill" Slaanesh, he would have to overcome Slaanesh by having more emotional energy in regards to pride, lust, ecstasy, etc than Slaanesh itself. And obviously that's not something Khorne would do. The only way for one of the current chaos gods to overcome another would be if they started absorbing emotions outside of their "comfort zone".
Chaos Gods can't die and by now all of them have feasted so much that they won't disappear even if all humans were wiped out so their emotions can't power them.
Gifts Slannesh gave to the Chaos Gods, the bird man and grandpa accepted them with grace but Khorne said fuck this and smashed it... then proceeded to rebuild it and then destroy it over and over again.
It got so bad I think Slaanesh took away the damn thing out of pity.
Now that we're talking about warhammer gods and shit, who the fuck is Malice? What even is his deal? His lore makes no sense is he even canon
Why is it that Humans are the only race the feeds Chaos Gods?
why are the only servants of Chaos humans and daemons? Why are the Dark Eldar their own thing instead of serving Slaanesh?
That's some major fucking heresy.
Malice/Malal was going to be the Chaos god of Chaos, enemy of all. His champions would've been few but an ungodly amount of strong.
He's not canon but references are occasionally thrown in. He's not canon because of a rights' dispute, basically someone left and took their fucking idea with them.
That is not how the Great Game is played. And something about not doing anything until X amount of blood is flown and X amount of skulls on his skull throne.
I heard that Games Workshop released a bunch of content, Mordheim and Vermintide included, as sort of a "end-of-days" event for the Fantasy universe.
Is this because Warhammer Fantasy simply isn't making them money anymore or what's up.
They are an overly emotional, easily corrupted and relatively young race.
But i still love them
Finished Space Marine and Necron campaigns on soulstorm. What race should I play next? First reply chooses.
Khorne has dreams about killing the other chaos gods at the end times. In particular he wants to choke the life out of slaanesh (who enjoys it right until s/he dies) and then break his/her back.
They overhauled the interface at least 2 times ever since it came out and most of the stuff has explaining tooltips ingame.
Of course if you want to know in details or need into on some of the things that aren't explained you'll have to read up on the wiki.
If that's complex, I wouldn't want to see you learn dominions. 300 hours to actually not be a total pushover, but far from good.
The Warhammer mod for it is silly.
that ain't a race
Not true, Khornates take no artful approach to killing, seeking only to slay rather than to inflict pain, because while the blood of their victims strengthens Khorne, their suffering actually empowers his nemesis Slaanesh.
The basics of Dominions are actually pretty damn simple to pick up. Actually becoming good with a single faction can take a longass time though since there's so much strategic depth when you combine faction units, foreign levies and magic trees.
Khorne hates and despises the Chaos God Slaanesh, the Prince of Pleasure, above all other beings in the galaxy. The self-indulgent sensuality of the Prince of Chaos is an affront to the warrior instincts of Khorne. The Lord of Battle dreams of one day wrapping his scarlet fingers around Slaanesh's soft, delicate neck and crushing it until the younger God’s depraved screams of pleasure become shrieks of agony and then finally go silent with a satisfying snapping of godly bone. The sense of duty, honour, and self-sacrifice that fuels part of Khorne's existence is an anathema to the followers of Slaanesh, and the very antithesis of their own philosophy of self-indulgent pleasure seeking. The daemonic servants of Khorne and Slaanesh often attack each other on sight, and their mortal followers are often no less eager to join battle. However, Khorne also has little respect for Tzeentch, the Arch Conspirator. Tzeentch's patronage of wizards and manipulators intensifies the antipathy between their respective followers and they are frequently in conflict. However, both Chaos Gods make common cause when the prospect for bloodletting is great and Tzeentch's unguessable schemes can be advanced through their mutual efforts. At such times the Star of Chaos waxes strong in the mortal realm as the two most potent of the Ruinous Powers temporarily join forces and send their legions to war. Such mercurial pacts seldom endure for long before Khorne's disciples, or Tzeentch's manipulators, inevitably turn on their erstwhile allies.
Public quests were honestly some of the coolest things ever.
You just wandered over to an area, and started doing shit like say - killing human villagers, then once enough shit happened you'd advance to stage 2 which was like "light all the houses on fire" and this was on a timer so if enough people weren't doing the quest it wouldn't happen. If you completed stage 2, you'd advance to stage 3 which would be something like "kill the big bad human knight that's here to try and stop you". Complete that and there'd potentially be rewards for everyone involved (because giant chest with a lot of loot bags and bonuses to rolls based on participation).
Of course I'm dramatically oversimplifying this and if you started the game later you could have a hard time finding enough people for 'low level' public quests, but I really wish blizz would try something like them in WoW... which could basically amount to open world raids.
Dominions has a pretty good UI though
Some things are unintuitive but you get it after like an hour tops
Then again after powering through DF most every other UI feels like cake
>...and he that went before now came last, and that which was white and black and all direction was thrown against itself. Grown mightily indignant at the words of the Gods, Malal did turn his heart against them and flee into the chambers of space...And no man looked to Malal then, save those that serve that which they hate, who smile upon their misfortune, and who bear no love save for the damned. At such times as a warrior's heart turns to Malal, all Gods of Chaos grow fearful, and the laughter of the Outcast God fills the tomb of space...
He's more hardcore than Necoho and Malal taken together..
Dawn of War looks fun but the big pile of expansions makes getting in seem confusing. Is the idea that you get them all, or is any one considered to be definitive? Are the different single-player parts worth it?
>So it's just intellectual property they can sell for video games?
That seems to be the plan. Kill off the miniatures to sell vidya because everyone knows that vidya won't make people buy miniatures and bring fresh blood to the tabletop...
They really should. But GW hates money.
Most people consider dark crusade definative.
Winter assault was the first expansion and remained a campaign driven 'story' type game that was pretty damn fun.
Dark crusade became a 'fight for the provinces' type game where story was only really available on the enemy bases.
Soulstorm was done by a third party... and it shows. There were a few quality of life changes, but overall it was a relatively 'poor' game.
Eldar are HILARIOUSLY overpowered in the dawn of war games. Your 'dedicated range specialist' squad can outfight some non-melee squads in melee. Your dedicated melee specialist squad can outfight almost anything that has courage. Your super unit buffs all your units and increases your supply cap. Your worker can kill guardsman squads all day long in melee.
>What the fuck is he doing to her?
Courting her because Papa Nurgle genuinely loves her. Also, because he's the god of disease, his courtship takes the form of designing ever more disgusting diseases to "bless" her with.
Oh, and the original dawn of war was a campaign story game too focused on space marines. Winter assault was Chaos, Orks, Imperial guard and Eldar in its campaign all with (mostly) their own story modes. Dark crusade added necrons and tau and became province based, soulstorm added SoB & dark eldar (both of which sort of sucked).
Dawn of war 2 campaign was very fun, chaos rising was also pretty good. These were focused around space marines and fun squad based tactics stuff. Retribution became sort of similar to dark crusade in how it was played, it was less story driven but offered multiple races in campaign.
No. It's because of how copyright works in britbong land. They have to aggressively control their property and be selective about how it's used or they could easily lose control of their property.
>copyright prevents them from selling their own amiibos
I don't see how.
>basically someone left and took their fucking idea with them.
Good. Fuck that someone who had that idea but thank fuck he's so autistic that he took it with him.
How else do you explain everything after THQ died?
>Why is it that Humans are the only race the feeds Chaos Gods?
They aren't. Any race with a soul and psychic presence can feed them.
>why are the only servants of Chaos humans and daemons?
They aren't. Back when GW wasn't so blatantly jewish, you could use almost any race with Chaos. Some are more resistant to the call than others though - nid hivemind and ork gestalt field. However, chaos cults used to use genestealer cults to help take over planets. They probably still do, but heaven forbid GW allows for chaos [non-dedicated model] units again.
>Why are the Dark Eldar their own thing instead of serving Slaanesh?
Because they have no psychic presence and are hiding in safe parts of the Webway. They essentially cannot be found, and are thus free to do their own thing. Also, they are pretty extreme when it comes to keeping it that way. Some famous deldar once wanted sweet far seer pootang and captured one. When he took her to the Dark City to be his bitch and the archons found out there was a psyker in their city, they attacked him, killed her (turned her into crystal), and would have killed him if he wasn't such a badass that they literally could not keep up with him and every assassin was killed. That guy carries the far seer's crystal heart around now or something like that.
Not anywhere official. They have their own gods, Gork and Mork. If Gork and Mork weren't real originally, they are by now.
Some people speculate if their bloodlust empowers Khorne, and on some level it probably does, but they don't follow him, worship him, or anything along those lines unless they fall to chaos (which, again, is hardly ever mentioned as happening anymore). Another example of the separation though is that one Waaagh! that went into the warp, got trapped on one of Khorne's worlds where they killed some high up. Khorne was so pleased by the battle that he resurrected both sides to let them keep fighting, which he does again and again, keeping them in eternal conflict. That was hardly a typical case though.
I don't think he's complaining. As with most thing in the newer editions, they really cut it down into a tiny little blurb that doesn't explain much. Pic related.
He used to be, back when he had his staff. However, things happened and the other gods took the staff and broke it into peices to even the playing field. Current Tzeench is rebuilding the staff (which is essentially done by making a book that contains every spell in existence, IIRC), but he isn't really close to succeeding yet.
Slaanesh is the current "strongest" god because she has power over all of the chaos gods - all of them live in excess, all of them have parts of her in them. There's a blurb somewhere that covers it, but I can't be assed to drag it up.
4th Edition did Tuska's story better. It covered two pages, but here's the part in question. In short, yeah, he loves it.
>some boyz just hauled in some right flashy lookin' sattilite space gubbinz, and just keep in on board their crooza and have some grot send fake signals back to terra through the transponder while the rest of the sattilite is already looted.
Just started the Chaos Rising campaign
Is there any bearing on the story by doing the corruption things
>there is no way X is stronger than the weakest chaos god
You wot m8? You do realize there was an STC that literally rendered Nurgle obsolete and was capable of curing any possible plague he could invent - some deldar lady took the STC before the Imperium could begin using it.
Also, fine, because fuck you, I went and dug up the reference. Notice that the phrasing here isn't "be stronger than." It's "eclipse." It's "so far greater than them that her presence blocks the sun from the sky."
Yeah, she's pretty intense in 40k. At least there are several prophesies that suggest she's getting an asswhooping come 40k End Times.
Also, in WHFB, some guys managed to capture and completely seal her away.
I personally use "she" and "her" because the people that literally fucked her into existence call it a her. It's their right, same as the people who give genders to boats and stuff.
I'm more of a codex guy. GW doesn't ever really explicitly reference sex or the like (just the family-friendly things, like torture or transforming women into giant, monster-producing wombs. You know, the clean stuff), but they use a lot of roundabount language for it. It's pretty obvious. Give me a minute and I'll screenshot the Fall.
Post some or tell me where to find some and I'll gladly cap it and source it. Also, if you know where to get Tzeench's staff, tell me that too. It's been missing from my folder forever.
I'm taking it from Dark Eldar 5E. It'll give you a better understand of the split too, if you're new. Here's page 1/2.
These threads are how I discovered Dawn of War, which stands as my second favorite RTS of all time. 40k has its place here as vidya, and if people also want to talk about lore (to better understand what's going on in the games, if nothing else), then that is fine too.
