Nurgle is about despairing over your eventual decay and accepting the inevitable, the futility of fighting back time and death. It's about the eternal cycle of life, death and rebirth, as much as Nurgle is about death, he is also about life. A rotting corpse gives birth the new life.

Because he's the kid poking the ant hill. He's the sick bastard pulling off wing from flies and kicking puppies. We are the ones who despair over our mortality, but Nurgle is immortal and therefore doesn't have to deal with that shit. Instead he's ecstatic about all the new ways he can torture mortals some more and bring more of them to his side, to spread new plagues and super aids.

Ever noticed how out of all his daemons, only the plaguebearers are somber and sad figured, droning on and on and keeping tally of his plagues? That's because they're made out of mortals. All the rest are born from Nurgle and share his jolly personality.

If by "as you are" you mean "fearing death, saddened by your decaying body and despairing over the misery all the new plagues do to you", then sure.

Tzeentch caters to people who stand up to fate and say "no!" People who strive to make a change, who hope for better, who desire something different.

And anger is not misery.

The fluff's really no different from GW in consistency, idiocy, etc. What's the problem is that they've done their own views on various things and led to various deviations from GW fluff and just confuse people. When ever you get an argument going and FFG is introduced as the source, it all goes to shit. Even better, when someone tries to argue FFG being the "right" source since it's the newest, even when an even newer GW publication (which is in line with the rest of GW fluff) refutes the FFG claim. Of course then the people just pull the old "everything's canon" and go silent.

FFG fluff is fine for its own setting, but I wouldn't start mixing it with GW stuff. It's the Amazing Spiderman to GW's Ultimate Spiderman (or something, I'm not into superhero comics).

To CSM, being inside a dread is suffering. Nurgle enjoys suffering, and anything he can do to prolong the suffering of his followers is just good.

Also, Nurgle is as much about life as he is of death. Death brings life. He's the embodiment of the cycle of life and the mortal realization of this grim fact.

>Crazy evil.

How does that differ from regular crazy? In the context of a grimderp universe?

>Nightspeat

Again, Eldar find Necrons to be the most despicable things around. And worse than Slaanesh? Really? Because last I checked, Necrons could kill you, but Slaanesh could rape your souls for all eternity.

>Nurgle loves us all!

But he loves us for our suffering while he upgrades your aids to super-aids.

And Khorne is the Blood God, but he doesn't get power from blood, he gets power from the anger that's associated with the act of spilling blood. It says that the moment the first sentient rose its hand against another in anger, Khorne has existed.

Realm of Chaos books say Tzeentch gets its power from the hopes and dreams of people wishing for riches, power, to help the poor and weak, to change the world and to become better. All this is change, powered by the hope for change, just like decay causes people to despair, which is Nurgle's domain.

Nurgle is not about despair of failing to uphold stasis. Nurgle is the god of life, decay, rebirth, etc. But it's an endless cycle, never ending. No breaking free from destiny, from your mortal coil, to watch it wither and die and having to live with that fact.

Do you people even fluff?

>The living know that they will die, and many know that they will live with disease or other torment, yet they drive this knowledge into a corner of their minds and keep it pinioned there with all manner of dreams and activity. Nurgle is the EMBODIMENT of that knowledge and of the unconscious response to it, of the hidden fear of disease and decay, AND of the POWER OF LIFE which that fear generates.

>Nurgle cherishes all life, be it mewling babe or a bubonic pox.

Nurgle? Nice? He's like the abusive husband or mother who hurts her kids so she can nurse them.

>gives you aids
>"Oh, it's ok, honey, let me kiss it and make it all better."
>gives you super aids

It's actually disturbing, that Nurgle, Nurglings and Great Unclean Ones are jolly, but Plaguebearers are somber drones that exist, which is appropriate as Plaguebearers are born from mortals that fall to Nurgle's Rot. So while true daemons of Nurgle are like him, jolly sacks of shit, his mortal followers and his daemonic legions made up of former mortals, are sad and tragic figures who just emo it out.

Nurgle is jolly, because he's like an abusive mother who hurts her kids so she can nurse them back to health. It's the natural dread of death and decay that attracts the attention of Nurgle and he keeps you alive and gifts you with flesh rotting diseases so you can live and see your once proud physique wither away and all you once held dear turn to ash. And Nurgle's there to wipe away your tears and be all "well, you still got me, sport."

Nurgle is jolly, great unclean ones are jolly and nurglings are jolly. You know who aren't jolly? Plaguebearers. You know where plaguebearers come from? From the souls of those that have been killed by Nurgle's Rot, mortal souls. Mortals who weren't very happy about contracting said disease in the first place.
