Slaanesh is kinda cool but only from the obsession and seeking sensation angle for me, not the 'look at them ass and titties' angle.

It can be very tempting, being able to taste or feel or smell or hear or sing or speak again, when you don't have that anymore (or never had that).

When you're a techpriest who has legs that can't feel and no mouth and no sense of taste I can see a moment of weakness being exploited.

Finding some fishy plans and going from there into chaos- trying to pretend this isn't heretical, all you want to do is smell the bellflowers of home, you miss it so much, you're so far away and it always reminded you of your family- is much more interesting than 'so yeah one day I fucked a daemon. Shit was so cash.'

I'm rereading Titanicus so the idea of a khornate princeps is also neat- you're not fighting the Titan anymore, you don't care- Khorne cares not where the blood comes, only that it does. And you make it rain.

blood, of course; khorne also cares not for cash.

You know, I don't hate WH40K. I don't hate the players. I don't hate the game or the fact that it spawns much OC and fluff in /tg/.

What I hate is that GW took an idea and several words which have specific meanings and corrupted them so much, that people have no idea what they mean any more. "Chaos"? The chaos gods using Moorcock's symbol of chaos are just as organized as their enemies - they have to be to work as an army system that the game is based on. "Heresy"? Yeah right. Heresy doesn't mean what WH40K players thinks it means in the slightests - with one exception, Hereteks. Everyone else accused of heresy (not including Horus who WAS a heretic, and probably the only damn one in the whole game) is actually not a heretic but just an enemy of the faith.

Those two things piss me off.

Order, sometimes called Law, is associated with civilization, authority, rules, protection, the status quo, tradition, and, when stretched to its most evil extreme, mindless obedience, fascism and xenophobia.
Chaos is associated with change, Tricksters, free will, creativity, individualism, and, to its evil extreme, madness, savagery, solipsism, and selfish overindulgence.

I don't see the problem.

Right - so calling chaos worshipers "heretics" is stupid, because they don't follow the same religion as the Imperium does ANYWAYS. That's an enemy of the faith, not a heretic.

'Apostate' just doesn't have that ring to it.

I don't see why you think Horus is somehow the only real heretic ever when the Imperial Cult didn't even exist at the time, just Emp's feel-good wishy-washy secular humanism, though.

>> No.12473161

>3. anyone who does not conform to an established attitude, doctrine, or principle
>1. a professed believer who maintains religious opinions contrary to those accepted by his or her church or rejects doctrines prescribed by that church.
I imagine you consider it in the sense of 1., the second strictest definition. 3. is probably what is intended to apply, but consider that the Imperium is totalitarian. It's not unreasonable that they consider 1. to apply.

If you mean heretic in the sense of Roman Catholic and baptism, consider that the Imperium probably has similar birth and/or induction rites.

So it's not really being used wrong.

As for Chaos? If you were to distil 40k down to its two most significant influences you'd probably end up with Dune, and Nemesis the Warlock. The latter's protagonist is a devotee of 'Khaos'. Could be worth reading, I suppose it's a British classic by now.

>> No.12473173

Alow me to clarify.

If I worship Tzeentch, how am I committing heresy if I don't worship the God Emperor? the God emperor doesn't figure into MY orthodox religious belief - change and power and secrets do, not some dead corpse. Heresy for me would be stating that Tzeentch doesn't ant change to grant power and that secrets should be shared freely. THAT would be heresy.

Okay, to further define:
>Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state, usually under the control of a single political person, faction, or class, recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible.
The Imperium is totalitarian. One of the reasons why 'heretic' even in a more specific definition may apply is because the Imperium recognises no limits to its authority, save for those it imposes upon itself or allows others to have. So they don't recognise your religion. Like, at all. To them, you're a heretic even in the strictly defined sense.

I see your guys' point, and don't feel it's an unwarranted assumption (regarding the sexual aspect.)

However, I think you may be missing the point. Slaanesh followers succumb to lust just like followers of Khorne give into their rage.

It's not really about sex, it's about being obsessed with it. Slaanesh is hedonism and indulgence, he's an aspect of greed and gluttony as much as lust.

Personally, I don't think Slaanesh would be a believable concept without the sexual aspect.

The man who collects stamps can fall to Slaanesh as easily as the whore. There needn't be anything sexual about Slaanesh.

It's just that it's so much more COMMON to fall thanks to sex, because /sex feels good/. It's wired into humans to like the sensations of sex- and to want more of it.

See, there's always been a problem with Khorn's followers in that BRUTAL HAND TO HAND COMBAT IS GOOD, and doing anything to avoid or protect yourself from combat is bad, but then what should be done about armor? Should a warrior of Khorne wear armor, something designed to protect cowards who don't know the glory of RIP AND TEAR?

So Kharn pondered this for a while and then realized that if he didn't wear any armor on his arm, then it technically wasn't ARMor, and he was good to go.
