I didn't think it was possible for a Nurglite daemon to get angry. I always imagined them as embodying apathy, despair and a sort of sick joy, rather like the people who post in waifu, furry and forever alone threads.

Oh well.

Nurgle is hard to characterize anyway. He's the god of despair and ruin, but his daemons tend to be jovial and friendly. He's supposed to embody humanity's positive reaction to doom without being an embodiment of hope - because that's Tzeentch's thing. He's supposed to embody stagnancy and rigidity, but by breaking everything down he's changing things.

Really, he seems just sort of messed up, like the writers didn't have a clear plan on what he represented other than "scary disease stuff."

He and Tzeentch and Slaanesh need a redesign.

It wouldn't be that hard, really, you just need to emphasize that all roads lead to Nurgle. Sure, he's "changing" things when he breaks them down, but it all is turned to junk, which isn't changable.
At the same time, all of his followers and daemons are jovial because, by the time you reach that point, you *are* Nurgle. His daemons are merely avatars, and his followeres are broken and torn apart at such a fundemental level that they simply aren't anymore, the void being replaced by the Plague Father. The end game is that everything will become Nurgle, from which nothing else may be created.

>> No.15425106

Pretty much, yea. Nurglesque Sororitas always made the most sense to me. For someone so faithful to turn away from the Emperor, they're going to have their faith truely broken, and for a Sororita that's pretty much going to destroy the foundations of their entire worldview. Seems that it'd be most likely they'd fall into the sort of crippling despair that Nurgle draws his worshippers from.

The problem is that Chaos gods are supposed to represent human emotions and behaviors. If they were representatives of concepts like Decay versus Change then that would work, but they aren't. Nurgle is supposed to embody despair and humanity's reaction to death - the "power of life." It's needlessly complex and contradictory.

>> No.15425142


In addition, Nurgle's mortal followers seem to be quite driven in their goals, Liber Chaotica says as much of the Norse nurglites, Chaos Warriors says this about Festus and Typhus of Death Guard as seen here behaves like any evil Chaos Champion.

The only difference between Nurgle and Tzeentch seems to be the imagery, and that other likes magic and other likes disease. Also, if you remove those differences you get the Horned Rat.

No, Nurgle is the dicotomy of fear of death, and the concious rejection of the knowledge of your inevitible death, so while he is rotting, he acts joviel. See >>15424563

Ah, but remember that to Nurgle, cries for relief and curses of his name while under the pain of his diseases sounds like the clamour of loving children to him, as per 4th edition Chaos codex.

I like to think that the rage of a Great One is brought to bear against the true enemies of Nurgle such as Apocritharies, as well, atleast in some rare cases, when a very special servant of Nurgle is taken from him before Nurgle wills it.
Vengence for a fallen champion.

>> No.15425211


Any kind of Sororitas makes sense to me.

The Nurglite Sister is the hospitaller who stops healing the sick and dying in a Hive and starts killing them instead, having lost hope that she might be making a difference.

The Khornate Sister is the militant who loses sight of WHY she fights and simply starts to glory in bloodshed.

The Tzeentch Sister is the sage who, in her lust for knowledge and power, begins to research forbidden Xenotech.

Really, the Slaaneshi sister seems the stupidest concept to me. Especially when you consider that sexually the Sororitas aren't that repressed, and are only celibate because they can't fit "dicking" into their busy schedules.

>> No.15425225

Besides the obvious "naughty nun" appeal (even the loyal ones wear corselets over their power armour FFS) there might be an in-universe reason for fallen SoB's being often Slaaneshi: according to FFG Keepers of Secrets are the most persuasive of Greater Daemons and most intent on corrupting mortals instead of killing them.

>The beguiled drops his weapon and stands dumb-founded in the midst of raging battle, his arms spread wide as his doom approaches. Those not dragged down in the cruel embrace of the Daemonettes that invariably accompany the Greater Daemons are crushed beneath its hooves, cut in two by its blade or blasted by its sorcery. The most unfortunate may meet another end entirely, and not one that sane men would dwell upon.

>Nothing is sweeter to a Keeper of Secrets than to deliver to its master the soul of one of Humanity’s greatest champions.

Then there's the issue of the most prominent Chaos Sister being Slaaneshi. Following is from short story "The Invitation" by Abnett.

>Where are you, Miriael? Karamanz wondered. That wasn’t the real question. The real question was what did they do to you?
>What did the vile powers of Chaos manage to do to you when they held you in their clutches? Verdicon. That’s where it happened. Miriael Sabathiel, >sister superior, had been reported as missing in action during the vicious fighting against the unholy Emperor’s Children.
>And then this. Back from the dead. Back, but changed. Changed in ways no other sister of battle had ever been changed.
>Miriael Sabathiel emerged from the darkness, sword in hand, and bent down beside him. ‘You’ll heal. You’re mine now. Daemon princes sing and my pulse quickens. Soon yours will quicken too.’

>> No.15425298

Oh, come on. You did so well with the first two.
Slaanesh isn't just about lust, but craving in all forms.
Greed, gluttony and pride are as much Slaaneshi sins as lust, and obsession is its hallmark: look at Noise Marines. It'd be quite easy to have a Sister who, sick of the strict military rations, bread and water, starts gorging on exotic, rich food in secret. Eventually, her desire for new tastes overwhelms her, and she secretly begins devouring the flesh of her enemies.

It's not too far a stretch from there before she falls straight int 'Nesh's arms.

Tzeentch would also be more scheming than xenotechnical, plotting how she can bring more hope to the people she protects- until she loses sight of actually saving the people, seeking only to make them hope (something that can't happen unless they're in peril), and subverts her own protecting innocents by deliberately drawing in enemies to fight.

>> No.15425311


Ah but Slaanesh not only promises sex, but the best sex in the universe...

Of course there are other perks, physical perfection, perfection in your chosen field of work a beloved hobby, supreme clarity of mind yadd yadda

Even though it's really Tzeentch's forte, even ambitious Sorcerers are drawn to Slaanesh because the god's nature ensures that he/she is driven to try and master the winds of magic/power of the warp as well, and can aid a disciple in that

>> No.15425365

along the lines of the Nurgle sister of battle.
I remember there was a very old chaos fantasy fluff story about a little girl who turned to Nurgle because all the other children called her ugly.
She prayed, and Nurgle gifted her after a couple days with maggots under her house.
She took the maggots, and hid them under the pillows of the offending children.
Three days later she laughs at them, their faces rotting off, as she was now more beautiful then they could ever be.

Nope. With Tzeentch, the ambition and drive comes from legitimate hope that things can change--or that you yourself can actively impose your will to change them--in a way that you consider better, rather than according to simple randomness and chance.

On the other hand, with Nurgle it's born from despair, from resignation to death. This surrender to the inevitable engenders a sort of exhilarated resolve to drag everything else down with you, to extend the gifts of entropy to all around you.

And then someone comes along, in your darkest time when all hope is lost and you have nothing left but pain and misery, and offers to bring an end to it. Offers to give you, if not happiness, then at least comfortable numbness. Would you say no?
