You say that like it's a bad thing. One one hand you have hardcore, pretty bad ass knight templar. Full on sword, chain and tabard theme. On the other you have the wolfs, with nordic viking themes and all that.

Immature neckbeards-in-training and 15 year old /b/-types like to associate "wolf" with OMG FURFAGGOTRY. This is really a small minority that "hate" the Space Wolves.

The real hate for the Space Wolves, as far as I've gathered, is because they're not really BAD at anything. They're not bad at range, or close-quarter combat, or psyker powers (Even though supposedly they hate, just HATE, psykers). They're an imbalanced chapter.

The thing with Wolves is they're really point-efficient, and their close-combat capabilities are better-distributed throughout their army, and they can do a rather good all-foot army too. Vanilla Marines suck at assault outside of a few units (which usually can pulp most anything else, so it's a wash. Also, Null Zone), and they are pretty terrible on foot.

a) the planet was pretty sh%tty before Magnus in some regards; there was a reason as to why previous civilisation perished
b) It is Magnus who started developing psychic potential of remaining denisens. And he did it in quite orderly fashion
c) and by that i mean his subordinartes were trained in ways of Warp and how to use it without being posessed. Discounting when they were posessed, mutated and put down.

Pretty much this.

If the guy doing it is also being shot at by you, its sorcery.

>> No.13617577

>>13617520
well as far as I understand, you dont need to be a psyker to use sorcery. Sorcery is using/communicating/summoning daemons with the help of spells that are chanted, waving hands in the air and such, often with the help of books, artefacts, sacrificing people and such. Whilst normal psykery is using your mind to direct warp energy into the physical universe.

In DH, sometimes sorcery is associated with demonic/heretical pacts. Like in one prestige class out of the Radicals Handbook, a Cleric can gain sorcery.

It works a lot like psyker powers, but involves a lot of grimdark situational aid (like one spell has makes a magical flaming flail from skulls, which HAVE TO BE NEARBY or the spell doesn't work because there's nothing to make a flail from). This sort of sorcery, because it uses some sort of forbidden magic and not natural psyker powers, tends to incur Corruption.

If you're a psyker though, I guess being a "sorcerer" is just where you are standing with the rest of the Imperium, as to whether or not you're being a bad dude, or a living weapon.

etc. are forgetting that the Emperor told the Space Wolves to do it.

in Prospero Burns, there are a shitload of them hidden by the Sisters of Silence at Nikaea "in case Magnus doesn't take it well". which meant the Emperor had made his decision before the whole thing went down, held a mock trial to create the illusion of fairness, and had the Space Wolves (and Blood Angels and Emperor's Children) ready to RIP AND TEAR the Thousand Sons if they didn't say "yes daddy".

In light of Prospero Burns, the Wolves don't have a problem with psykers, they have a problem with those who go too far. Sorcery is too far. Honing your psychic powers in a safe fashion is alright. Hell thats even why the 13th company Runepriest used a teleport power in the SW omnibus, because he had time to master it fully before using it in a regular fashion.

Magnus and sons just rushed headlong, taking on new powers and new ideas before they had mastered the old ones. Its alot like the AdMech handles things. They research new tech, they just do it at a very slow and cautious rate.

So how the fuck do you even create a psychic power? How the fuck do the librarians/rune priests/whatever make the powers look the same all the time?

Lukas got caught the first time, was a random happenstance that he was on the ship that Sliscus raided. I doubt Lukas has the kind of time to hitch rides on transports in the hopes that ONE of the corsairs that will rape his ship MIGHT be Sliscus deciding to come out of Commorragh for his once a millennium anniversary raid.

>> No.13625006

>>13624959
Lukas is a pretty rebellious guy. If he decided he absolutely had to fight Sliscus again he'd go out and do it, regardless of whether or not he permission to go. Grimnar would probably let him leave, considering the Wolf Lords actively hate him and avoid having him around if they can help it.

>> No.13625071

>>13624959
Lukas was only once bested during an abortive attempt to cripple the flagship of the Dark Eldar Prince Sliscus, wherein his heart was cut out as a souvenir and he was set adrift in space - an ordeal that only Lukas could laugh about. Lukas later had a stasis bomb wired in place of his secondary heart so that when his primary heart stops beating, he and the one who finally bested him would be frozen in time as a gruesome and eternal monument to his own glory.
