What's up with Nurgle? He's a fucking god of pestilence and stagnation; why would anyone want to join up with someone who doesn't want you to change? I mean, all the other chaos gods purviews seem to be enjoyable. Want to slaughter people and feel their life's blood showering you? Khorne will help you with that. Want extreme progress and backstabbing? Tzneetch will give you a hand. Want to be a paragon of debauchery and perfection? There's Slaanesh.(I know they encompass more than that but I'm just generalizing.)

tl;dr: Why the fuck would anyone join Nurgle?

>> No.15739850

Nurgle is the only god who views you as more than a tool, the only one of the four who actually gives you respect and attention, the only one of the four who isn't completely capricious.

>> No.15739881

Want to live foreever? Nurgle will give you the best chance of that. You are immune to all diseases and ailments.

>> No.15739886

People join nurgle because they're forced to join him. People with terminal illneses pray to him to take away the pain or to let them live. It's the fear of death through disease that grants him power.

Unless you're born on one of the worlds where the dark gods whole sway, then you see nurgle as some sort of fertility god who spreads plagues around which are good. These people are 100% crazy.

>> No.15739917

Er. I was led to believe that, you know, on top of Nurgle offering eternal life, most people joined up with him because he's the "nicest" of the Chaos gods -- ie: he sees his followers as being part of his family, not just things he can use to fuck people over.

The Beasts of Nurgle are
incarnations of the Plague Lord's own bountiful

Because Nurgle loves you, that's why.

Well, sorta. You still get diseases, and you're still contagious, but they won't kill you and the symptoms won't be such a bother.

>> No.15740039

So if a cultist gets an STD and goes around spreading that STD to EVERYTHING, what god would they be helping out?

>> No.15740055

Say you're chronically depressed. Say one day it get so bad that you decide to kill yourself. So you're standing there with the gun to your head, wallowing in despair, telling yourself things like "I might as well do it, what's the point of life anyway? I'm just gonna die in the end and nothing I do will matter afterwards, may as well end it now and get it over with."

Then a voice speaks to you.

This voice sounds like a fat, kindly fellow with unconditional interest in your well-being. He sounds avuncular, like a doting uncle, or even your favorite grandpa. He tells you that it's alright to be miserable, to feel the way you're feeling now, because it means you've finally figured it all out. You've discovered the truth about life once and for all: that it ends. Everyone dies, everything wears down and disappears, and there's nothing to be done. There really is no point to any of it. Unless...

>> No.15740075

That's still Nurgle.

It's not like Slaanesh is the only god with followers that have sex, you know. Anyway, STDs are aesthetically unappealing and imperfect. Slaanesh does not tolerate that sort of thing.

Where is the question?

>> No.15740139

What are some "gifts" followers of Nurgle would be blessed with? What would be some ways to praise Nurgle?(Rites, prayers, etc...)

>> No.15740140

Slaanesh is neutral to Nurgle.
If someone, say, had a fetish for diseases, Slaanesh would be down with that.

>> No.15740158

Gifts are generally mutations and toughness.

Rituals are spreading of disease.

>> No.15740164

Unless you can find a purpose in all of the pointlessness. Unless you can dedicate your life to spreading the great truth to everyone around you. Unless you can make it your driving goal to hasten the end of absolutely everything--clearly the only worthwhile goal in the face of the universe's overwhelmingly inevitable entropic decline.

But how best to embark upon such a monumental undertaking? Ah, says the kindly voice with proud paternal glee, I have just the plan for that. Stick with me, buddy, and I'll help you out. Trust in me, son, and I'll see you through 'til the very end. And when the end finally comes, I'll be so proud of all you've done.

Slaanesh is not about aesthetically pleasing forms. The daemonettes and some of the other daemons of Slaanesh are only appealing in the sense that they release a powerful musk that causes them to appear so, not because they actually are.

Other than that, what in God's name is appealing about the Emperor's Children form?

>> No.15740195

They use vials, actually.

>> No.15740209

Say some cultists wanted to summon high "ranking" daemon of Nurgle. Would this rite be strong enough to bring it forth:

People afflicted with various rare diseases are crucified around a giant symbol of Nurgle. All the excrement(pus, blood, urine, etc) drips down into basins underneath the sacrifices. The cultist are chanting praises to Nurgle the entire time this is happening until the last person expires. Then the cultist push the basins over so the fluids fill groves the create the symbol of Nurgle.

Because he is a song of salvation to those who would hear it, no more sufering, woe, or anguish. His kisses grant you life eternal, and a means to spread his blessed gift to those around you unable to listen to pety words. you see his works around you everyday, the sick and downtrodden, his cancerous boils mark every world, and ever space ship, for he is everywhere.
only the initiated realise what life truly means, his suffering shows them how to truey live. To Embrace Nurgle is to embrace the truth of eternity.
How vain you must be to think your flesh is more important than your should, how ignorant you must be to not spread the truth through the galaxy.
we weep for you

Greetings. It is me Azariah Kyras.

I have felt Nurgle's embrace and affection, and I have found it....lacking compared to the glory and might that Khorne gives his chosen.

How can you possibly refuse? Here's someone who will never judge you, never put you down, who--as sickly and cliched as it sounds--loves you just the way you are. He doesn't demand that you change for Him, that you be someone or something you don't want to be. He knows what you're going through like nobody else ever could. He raises you up from the ashes of your despair, wraps you in the warmth of His approval, and imbues your lethargic, pointless, random existence with purpose, vitality, and objectivity.

So you accept. You welcome His embrace with abandon, seizing His outstretched hand like a dying man clinging to a last hope. You surrender to the inevitable, and revel in the unexpected--yet glorious--sense of utter freedom that floods through you.You can't help but laugh joyfully, for the burden of terrifying, subjective choice has been lifted from you. You raise your voice in grateful praise to your savior, and his proud, satisfied laughter echoes in your ears as you take your first steps on the long road ahead.

There is much work to do.

Despair all ye Nations, deny not that we're sick,
For our blood is like water where once it was thick.
And our minds grown leaden, our bodies gone weak,
And venom pours from our lips whenever we speak.

Despair all ye Nations, for the time draws apace,
When the rot of the cynic shall steal our good grace.
And our sweetest of dreams shall fade to lost hope,
Our pride and our arrogance; Our noose and our rope.

Despair all ye Nations, see the years drawing on,
Our great cultures are fading and soon they'll be gone.
So conceited our Scholars, they jeer through their teeth,
With their theories so shallow - Quite soulless beneath.

Despair all ye Nations, for the ending is near,
When the Lord of Lost Heart shall govern us with fear,
Our weakness unfetters as we face this unknown,
And our faith trails to nothing; we stand here alone.

Despair all ye Nations, the Corruptor has come,
And the sad days of this world are nearing their sum.
For the shining ideals through endeavours we sought,
Grow sour as he passes and are coming to nought.

Despair all ye Nations, there's no hope for us now,
For we made this monster, placed a crown his brow.
He fed on our apathy; our pain made him swell,
We gave him Dominion, he gives us his Hell.

Nurgle is awesome. When you join him, your body carries a very unique toxin that he has created; no two Plague Bearers or Plague Marines carry the same contagion and each of them are capable of incapacitating a normal human or eldar even with a single touch. To serve Nurgle is to embrace acceptance and love for although each new concoction is his current favorite, picking a true favorite would be impossible. His warriors protect his gardens where all things are created. Truly there are fools who believe that Nurgle expresses death, but he expresses all things that is life! By spreading his germ to the masses he is combining the life of his poisons into the lives of humans and always trying to make the perfect brew in synchronization between mortality and immortality. Each time a human dies because of Nurgle's failure to create a perfect being, he or she is reincarnated as a Plague Bearer - as is the point of their name - and is granted Nurgle's love as a tribute to his own personal suffering that you had to suffer a pain more terrible than what Khorne or Tzeench could ever offer you. He doesn't want pain, he wants peace.

Other chaos gods treat their followers like total shit, lie and manipulate them, and get off on their pain and suffering as much as their enemies. Nurgle honestly cares for his followers, doesn't manipulate them, and is actually saddened by the loss of his followers. Sure, he makes them into diseased ugly-as-fuck freaks and infects them with horrible diseases that do some seriously messed up shit to people. But that's par the course for a Chaos god.

>> No.15740562

Nurgle is also the god of Despair. Through disease and stagnation you crumble towards his will. Basically as you become weaker from the plague and eventually become consumed to it, you'll beg nurgle for his "love" and he'll take all your pain away. Literally Nurgle is emo as fuck. There is a reason why he is the most "loving" of the chaos gods.

uuuh, no. Nurgle's diseases only shorten the lifespans of non-followers. And following is completely optional. Sure his followers will kill you if you say no, but they're just cutting out the middle man that way.
