So fa/tg/uys, if you had the choice between succumbing to one of the corruptions of Chaos, which one would it be?

>> No.18339228

We have the endless Blood lust of Khorne that's thrill becomes smaller and smaller until the all you can do is rage endlessly in a futile attempt to sedate your burning, infinite blood-lust. You are forever a captive of those you hate.

>> No.18339234

We have Nurgles Corruption, which might actually be one of the least terrible from the standpoint of pure pain. You are slowly infected with an endless amount of diseases until you finally succumb to the endless despair and decay of mortal existence and submit to Pappa Nurgle's warped patronage. You no longer feel physical pain, and feel a sense of acceptance so rare in the Galaxy of the 40k. But deep down your soul rots with shame as your loved ones view you as disgusting and wretched and your only company is as rotted and vile as you are. Your only solace is in spreading Nurgle's "blessing" to others to bring them down to your level.

>> No.18339242

Next up we have the corruption Tzeentch. Where your drive for power and knowledge is sedated by glimpsing small fractions of his grand plot for the universe. However, overtime the knowledge you accumulate begins to drive you insane as it defies mortal logic and reason, oftentimes completely eclipsing your original ambitions and rendering you an eternally terrified and broken being much in the sense of Lovecraftian horror.

>> No.18339248

To be free of pain, free of disease, even almost free of death... To be truly happy in a universe of pain and horrors. What better thing could there possibly be?

>> No.18339250

And finally we have the corruption of Slaanesh. While it may seem to be the best of the four at a quick glance, it's outcome is probably the worst of the 4. You gain a greater and greater sensitivity to pleasure and enjoyment in all it's types at first, but quickly find that things you used to enjoy become duller and duller causing you to find ever more extreme ways of finding pleasure until you are driven to committing acts of unspeakable violence and destruction, in an just feel alive. In the end, unless you you ascend to the title of daemon prince, you are eventually sucked down into the Palace of Pleasure and consumed, forever tortured for She Who Hungers.

Well, let's look at the practical side of things:

KHORNE: You become better at murdering things, and are intrinsically obligated to murder things. Your fellows will murder you if there's nothing better to murder. Not being psychopathic, I'll pass.

TZEENTCH: You gain the potential for power, and the hope to use that power for your own benefit. More likely, you will be used as a pawn to further someone else's benefit. He, in turn, is a pawn for someone else, all the way up to Tzeentch himself. Your fellows will betray you as a religious experience. No one ever wins but big T himself, and since none of his plots ever actually end, (other than feeding into some other plot)the schemes and backstabbing continue forever. Pass.

SLANNESH: Ultimate, unlimited pleasure, total dedication to the point of self-destruction. Obsession and addiction that invariably leads to ruining your life. You're damn happy the whole way through though, and your fellows either ignore you to focus on their own obsessions or share your ecstasy with you. Maybe.

NURGLE: You are infected with a miriad of diseases, which you feel no pain from. You are totally freed from fear of any kind; nothing can hurt you and death itself only brings you to Grandpapa's side (Plague Bearers are a direct soul-to-daemon conversion, rather than being fed by our created out of. They're an afterlife). Your fellows love you unconditionally and you live with them as family, coexisting with life of all shapes and sizes. Fucking hell yes.

What could possibly be more liberating then the feeling of endless battle for the rest of eternity in this mindless world?

At first you rage and hate and run and smash, but it goes away quickly enough, leaving just the skill and thrill of victory and defeat.

Die a thousand times and kill a million enemies for no other reason then to feel the rush of battle again and again and again and again... it is a feeling that never dulls, for it comes from the inside. It is not the feeling of blood flowing down your armor that you seek, no. It is the feeling of perpetual forward motion in the heat of battle, trading one blow after another and losing yourself to the rythm and heat of combat.

Thrue khornates have no intention of letting the world burn down because true khornates NEED enemies as they need the air they breathe and the water they drink.

Basically Nurgle is the only one who leaves you with the capability of leaving your mind intact, more or less.

I'd tend more toward Tzeentch personally if I could slow down or stop, Arihman-style after a while. Nurgle represents a bad time; I worked hard and diligently to smell nice, not quite ready to give that up. All that said, Chaos holds no promise for me, I'd prefer to build something myself with my own efforts. Maybe I'll go AdMech and try to make friends with a Techmarine or Cryptek.

Well, you don't need to, but they tend to be useless for anything else if you're in a hurry and they are readily avalible after a raid since most cultures protect their young and send the adults out to fight, and capturing sacrifices in mid fight is kinda impractical.

As far as I'm concerned, slaanesh is by far the worst. At first it looks like you're getting everything you ever wanted, but then it's not enough and the pleasures of yesterday grow dull, so you need more and more untill nothing can possibly be enough and every single moment is agony because you are not currently experiencing something you haven't tried yet and you can't try new sensations because your sensory organs are ruined and dull. And, then you get raped and tortured to death. When you die, slaanesh rapes and tortures your soul for an infinite number of eternities per second.

Have fun.

Also, Nurgle, Tzeench and Khorne were made mostly by humans, and slaanesh was made mostly by dark eldar who are deeply flawed on an emotional level.

Slannesh is not the god of sex. Slannesh is the god of seducing a forever-alone dipshit, bringing him back to your studio, fucking him, killing him as he orgasms, and mixing his blood, semen, and shit into your paints so you can finally paint the perfect sunset.

Good points, but I point out that:

is basically what happens to _anyone_ who's soul enters the warp. There is no "seat at the Emperor's right hand" for anyone, just the faithful clenching their eyes shut and covering their ears against the screams of the galaxy's dead.

The first Three existed long before humanity. Nurgle opposed Tzeentch, (stagnation vs change), Tzeentch opposed Khorne (subtlety vs straighforwardness) and Khorne opposed Nurgle (conflict vs acceptance). Do note that Slannesh was still capable of making himself known during this time; linear time and the warp really don't play well together.

The birth of a Chaos God is a momentous occasion. The entire galaxy was wracked with Eye-of-Terror level warp storms for thousands of years, and was spawned by a galaxy-spanning civilization of highly warp-tuned individuals focusing on a single Thing 24/7. Some pissy little conqueror (Genghis Khan; Khorne), precious little bacteria (Black Plague; Nurgle), or adorable little intrigue (Italian city-state feuding; Tzeentch) can't possibly spawn a Chaos God. I'll remind you that the fluff that it can is from the same era as Inquisitor Obi-Wan Sherlock Clouseau, pic very related.

That's just hedonism taken to its' logical end, though. Hell, it works like that anyway. People get bored easily, especially people with a naturally hedonistic streak.

>> No.18339818


The problem with that is that you can never reach perfection. You'll eventually destroy yourself seeking that ideal that just can't be attained. Hence the excess and sensational aspects of Slaanesh as well, you end up becoming a slave to seeking a new thrill, reaching a new high, only to find that it keeps getting harder and harder to do so as you become more desensitized to everything else.

That's not so bad, compared to the other gods.

With Khorne, the path to worship usually involves slaughtering everyone nearby, friends and foes alike. Fairly quickly, you end up as a mindless killer, until you are slain in battle.

With Nurgle, you're already dying of disease when you start worshiping him, and you only go downhill from there. You become a hideous zombie-like abomination that infects everyone near you with deadly plagues. Maybe you never die, but you're not really alive either.

With Tzeentch, you know from the start that you're just a pawn in someone's scheme. In that way, you damn yourself without gaining any more freedom than you would have had if you stayed loyal to the Emperor. Also, you go insane and usually end up as a Shoggoth-like horror.

With Slaanesh, you enjoy a lifetime indulging in every pleasure of the senses you can conceive of, and come as close to perfection as any mortal being can. After decades, or even centuries, of this you finally end up losing your sanity or killing yourself in the pursuit of ever more intense sensation. Of course, by then you probably don't care either way, and take pleasure even in the pain of dying.

Yeah... Slaanesh is totally the worst of the Chaos gods...

In each of the other cases you describe the person who falls to Chaos becoming something repugnant and shameful as a result.

Slaanesh is no different. When we say "sensation", we don't just mean "pleasant sensations" or when we say "perfection" or "beauty", we don't mean traditional aesthetics of those ideals. Slaanesh twists the pursuit ANY kind of sensation into horrific acts that should disgust any other normal person, and warps standards of beauty and perfection into a horrendous aberration that you seek out only for the sheer NOVELTY of it.

You have this image of following Slaanesh as trying to reach some sort of glittering, pure ideal and destroying yourself in the process. While trying to reach that ideal destroys you, the end you try to grasp in and of itself is something just as disgusting as what the other Chaos gods offer. It puts on an illusion of desirability at first, just like the other Chaos gods, again, but delving deeper into its trap reveals it for the sham it is.

>> No.18340167

either tzeentch or nurgle. on one hand with tzeentch there is the promise of power and knowledge on the other hand... tentacles and madness.
as for nurgle you get a sense of fulfillment and never have to fear pain or death again. But you also can say hi to desise, deformity and knowing that once it's all over you'll still be there you and your brethren will be unchanging, apathetic and stagnant.

nurgle is the safe bet but well even if he wins there isn't gonna be a whole lot to look forward to, tzeench is more likely to fuck you over but at least it'll be an interesting ride from beginning to end.

guess i'd go with tzeentch but i wouldn't be overly opposed to nurgle either.

I would love to live in a house with Slaaneshi cultists. Myself, I write music. I'm constantly experimenting, finding the perfect chord progressions, or the more intense beat, or a fusion of the two.
The next guy is obsessed with food, constantly trying to get the best flavours. The next one keeps the place tidy. The next person is always bringing people back for sex, which we all partake in. Everyone indulges in every way they can. Would be a blast. Might even stay stable, since if one person threatened the indulgences of another, the whole house would turn against them to prevent it happening to themselves... there'd be a balance, perhaps.

Since all I could ever lust for is knowledge, Tzeentch. Hopefully be useful enough to not get fucked over. And if hes the maser of justasplanned, then obviously he will eventually win. Also, the only way to experience true happiness would come from having all the knowledge in the world.

Oh I totally am.

Every aspect of Chaos has two faces, luring followers in with the inherent weaknesses and desires of human nature, and then twisting and corrupting them into something monstrous. They claim to follow one ideal and yet their pursuit of that ideal is constantly unattainable.

Khornates seek battle and vindication through attaining martial perfection, but Khorne cares not whether they win or are cut down. Nurgle claims to love his followers but leaves them wallowing in their own filth for eternity, and they find happiness in the fact that they cannot even remember what having a healthy, whole body was like. Followers of Tzeentch seek to manipulate the progress of the galaxy to their own end, and yet Tzeentch's own aspects of change and mutation mean that such progress in inherently unknowable and to seek to control it is futile. And Slaanesh promises her followers heights of perfection and sensation, but the closer they get to it the farther it eludes their grasp and the more desparate and ugly their means to attain it become.

And yet... Chaos is in our very nature for it is through our own desires and thoughts that such beings came into existence. It is a fundamental part of all beings that think and feel and live and die and dream.

Which is why it must all be destroyed.

The only path is the Folded Path. All beings of Chaos are expressions of an end mean, approached from hundreds of angles. Those who cling to these ideas of "Gods" are weaklings! How do they not see that we are the Gods?! Did not I create The Magus with my planning this speech to affect your souls? Or Khorne with the men whose bodies I left wrecked and broken? To take only one path to Apotheosis is not the way. See how each god fails itself? Think of Tzneetch, who ate Dead-God Malal one day. He consumed his foe completely, and became him, and now he fights himself in his own Great Games just as Dead-God Malal had.

If you're not a space marine or someone of that level of power, you're either going to wind up stopping a chainsword or a bolter shell or end up as a Spawn. Chaos cares NOTHING for almost all of its mortal followers. In order to wind up a Daemon Prince or something like that, you need millions, if not billions of deaths under your belt to even be considered. See: Deacon Mamon, IA5-7. The Lost and the Damned doesn't just refer to the Imperium casting the traitors and cultists and mutants, it also refers to Chaos itself not giving two shits about them.

You seem to forget that another big part of Khorne is the protection of the feeble. A warrior of Khorne throws himself against all threats, not just for personal glory but also because there are many who cannot do so. A Khornate fights; for himself, for the Blood God, and for all those who cannot fight for themselves. He is a Champion; he spills blood because it must be spilled, but only that which MUST be spilled. Those who cannot fight may not be fought, and any who would bring violence against one who cannot meet in glorious combat is a coward who deserves naught but to be cut down. The weak and infirm look up to the Champion, they glorify him as is his place and he defends them as is his duty.

Khorne is not baseless rage, he is heroism! He is honor! He is the overwhelming FORCE that cannot be surpassed, only bowed to or joined with!

That's the easy, but inefficient way to do it. The thing with the chaos gods is that they all have virtues of some kind, Slaanesh gives you pleasure, Khorne gives you valor and strength, Nurgle gives you endurance and joy, Tzeentch gives you hope and change, but they have all gone crazy. The war in heaven and the weaponization of the warp had something to do with it, but there were probably other factors.

Thing is, those virtues are still a part of them, if a minor one, so killing a worthy enemy in battle will please Khorne a lot more then killing a random orphan, but killing a hundred defenseless peasants is easier then killing a trained, armed and armored fighter, so in the end, it's a matter of "do I want to gain Khorne's favour by being a butcher" or "do I want to gain Khorne's favor by being a warrior".

The second option is far more difficult and far more rewarding

All the other aspects of Chaos are so concerned with their hypocritical goals and delude themselves into thinking that they can reach some kind of higher existence through their atrocities.

Hmm. Similar themes about the warp are mentioned in almost any book that describes travel through the warp.
In The First Heretic Ingrethel the Daemon talks about what the warp really is -the Sea of Souls.
In Battle for the Abyss a ship gets it's insides blasted open and exposed to the warp, and there's some fluff about the captain recognizing his dead brother's soul amidst the tsunami of the ravenous dead.
In Blood Reaver a CSM captain is caught outside a ship as it makes a warp transition and manages by virtue of sheer stubborn RAEGE to "survive" being eaten long enough to attract the attention of something that possesses him and turn him into a Nurgle Marine.

I can't remember offhand an explicit statement about What Happens When You Die, but there's no shortage of implications that at least you end up in the Warp at the mercy of various horrors that tear at your soul-stuff until it breaks down and dissolves.
The more psychically powerful the soul, the longer they'll last and the more sustenance they provide their consumer. Hence: Eldar and Waystones.
