I know the C'tan aren't exactly popular around here, but I'd like to see some fluff on the new ones Ward namedropped in his tactics article, in WD or online. Though GW would probably only do something like that to accompany a mini release and the Shard is just one unit which already has two different models to represent it.

The close weaves of dancing particles enthralled them and the deliciously focused trickles of electromagnetism leaked by the mortal bodies of the Necrontyr about them awoke a hunger in the C’tan quite unlike the one they had sated among the raging torrents of stars.

If something that big got that close to the sun you'd see a visible distortion of the sun's shape due to the gravity of the object. We're able to search for planets by measuring the gravitational "wobble" they cause in their home stars; and this is something that takes place one orders of astronomical units.

Probably the weirdest thing is that the C'tan got their massive powerup from a race that had been "pushed back until they were little more than an irritation, a quiescent peril clinging to isolated and forgotten worlds". And while I don't want to start yet more Ward-hate, the star-gods' powers being boosted to insane levels as a result of consuming the Necrontyr does seem to be something he introduced. Old codex mentioned that the C'tan feasted upon them, but not that they gained anything significant from it.

>The C’tan feasted upon their entire race, leaving behind only ghostly echoes of the Necrontyr. Only a few of the very strongest retained their intellect and even they were shadows of their former selves.
>The Old Ones’ mastery of the warp was now countered by the C’tan’s utter supremacy in the material universe, and the enemies of the Necrons suffered greatly in the slaughter which followed.

No, when they harvest you, your soul is left unmolested and goes to the warp.

Somewhere it was said that when the C'Tan began tho convert the Necrontyr, the warp was ablaze with their souls, or something to that effect.

>>18611111
It matters to people who retain their sentience as a spirit, and get raped by daemons. And it wasn't always like that, before Chaos the warp was like a revolving door for souls and resurrection was a thing.

I think you're referring to this quote, from a daemon commanded by Abaddon to reveal what's on Mars.

>“In the shade of Terra, beneath the mountains of mist, there is a new type of death. A sacrifice of men, but the precious souls are not consumed, they are cast adrift. Many are the daemons that wait like carrion to feast on the leavings from this rich table.”

>> No.18611327

>>18611245
Could be, though I remember the Necrontyr slaughter luring Enslavers instead of daemons (which did not exist back then).

But in any case, that too proves that souls are cast aside.

>>18611185
To be fair, in the old codex they were like animals, not bothering with living things, and the Necrontyr had to lure one into a necrodermis. The Void-Dragon could assume a form that could blot out the sun.

So they were always god tier strong, just didn't need to assert their power on mortals because to them they were just dist blowing in the solar wings and sticking to planets.

In the new one they were sentients, old foes of the Old Ones, and you know what sort of shitstorm people would have cooked up if they were left scattered across the universe in the god tier power level still on, feeding off on the stars for even more energy. There would have really been nothing to stop the C'Tan from flying off and fucking shit up.

So make them weak from their engagement with the Old Ones and left to lick the cold energies of the stars for sustenance, until they're once again introduced to the delicious cake of man-flesh.

I think feeding on bioenergy is quite fitting for an energy vampire thing. Isn't there some indication that they might have once been mortals like us? This is what some of the Necrons are after as well. Maybe they became energy, living energy, and found that only more living energy could sustain them properly.

The C'tan's war with the Old Ones might never have even happened. It's suggested that not even the Deceiver knew whether or not he was telling the truth. As for the C'tan's origins, the old codex describes their birth as follows:

>It is said that the birth of the star gods took place during the creation of the universe itself, formed of insensate energies unleashed in that churning mass of unimaginable force. In this anarchic interweaving, the sea of stars began to swirl and eddy into existence and for an age the universe was nothing more than hot gas and dust ruled over by the incomprehensible forces of billions of young suns. Long before planets had formed and cooled, the first self-aware entities emerged from the seas of plasma and mountainous flares of the suns themselves.

>In later eras these creatures would become known as the C’tan, but at this stage in their existence they bore little semblance to the terrifying entities they would later become. They suckled as monstrous parasites upon the uncaring parents that bore them, shortening the lives of suns by uncounted millennia. In time, these star vampires learned to fly on diaphanous wings of magnetic flux, leaving their birthplaces to drift to new feeding grounds and begin the cycle anew. They paid no heed to the hunks of solid matter which they passed in the void, the internal fires and pulsing electromagnetism of these new-born planets insufficient to even register on their monstrous hunger.

Goes on to raise the question of whether the C'tan were always colossal dicks, or if they were somehow tainted by gaining physical form. New book doesn't really have anything on how the star-gods came to be, though yeah, looks like Orikan wants to become one, as well as Szeras (who was equally as responsible for biotransference as the C'tan, yet only they were punished, but that's Szarekh for you).

>> No.18612237

It's impossible for the Deceiver to know whether he tells the truth or not.


Consider this:

The C'tan, at their height, had the power to shape reality. With a word, the Deceiver's lies could become true, and his truths could become fiction. Imagine what it would be like if you were to say something like "The Sky is blue" and suddenly, the sky has always been red throughout recorded history, and everyone, yourself included, remembers this to be so.

Well, that goes into the whole "If all the orks believe the Emperor is alive, he'll wake up" sort of stuff.

It says they had a mastery over the physical realm, but I doubt the can permanently change skies with a snap of their fingers. They could, possibly, alter the composition of matter and energy so that a world had red skies (like if there was a blue house they wanted to be red, instead of altering the wavelength of blue and red, they'd just change the composition of the atoms in the paint, so that they reflect red instead of blue). Or do permanent manipulation of reality, but after they leave the situation would revert back to normal.

Obviously they possess some kind of anti-inertia technology. For reference, that bubble of negative space (cloaking device? energy field?) is about the size of Jupiter.

It never says their power is unlimited, it says their power is only limited by their imagination.

If they can't think to imagine it, then they cant perform it.
The concept of a weapon able to harm them was so alien they never though about it and, consequently, it kicked them in the ass because of it.

I'm guessing the bubble is just an ordinary "shield" system, like you'd need in any large interstellar space craft.

Contrary to what sci-fi often shows, an energy shield would not be transparent. A field like this one that seems to be able to hold off the light/heat/plasma of the Sun would also inevitably bend visible light, distorting or obscuring the view of whatever spaceship was inside the shield.

>> No.18613981

But that requires them to have such limited imaginations that they never imagined saying "I Win."

Which is such a basic thing that if they could not imagine that, they have no imagination at all and thus are powerless.

But try to remember, they were more or less limited by the physical reality they possessed. It wasn't some Q shit where they just appear and take your ship inside a hydrogen atom or something.

Imagine them having the full knowledge of all formulas, all mathematical equations, string theory and theory of everything. While we have assumptions on how quantum physics work, they know exactly how it works, they could see it, feel it, they were it. They could see to infinity and beyond, count the particles of space, etc. They were the one-eyed men in the land of the blind.

If knowledge is power, then this be baaad mojo, man.

So now that they know all this, they have to put it into action. Look at the Orrery in the new codex. You think they just built that shit and it works on magic? No, they had to figure a way to hook it to all the stars, have a way to create all that technology with the knowledge the C'Tan possessed, etc. The idea can be simple, the execution might not be, but it's possible.

The "imagination" is the part where they have to figure out a way to use the knowledge they have to execute the plan they want to be made. It's those brain puzzles, where you got the pieces to solve it, you just have to figure a way to make it happen. I believe it was Richard Feynman that said that you need to have imagination to understand how things work.


It's not magic. If the had "unlimited power" in that they could ship up anything they wanted, why the fuck didn't they? Because they can't. Because it does not work with magic rules.

Obviously the dark filaments are containment/relativistic fields, the same as the spherical anomaly, which siphon material from the sun to the vessel. In the final hours of refeuling, the filaments combine, drawing more and more mass and energy, which may form a catalyst which begins the fusion reaction necessary to jump-start the interstellar drive.

I would guess that it was drawing up plasma from the surface of the sun via a charge differential between its shields and the plasma itself, and it took some time for the charge to build up to a point where a stable "tendril" of plasma was formed.

Think of it this way. A few massive tornados of plasma combined into one giant super funnel. The giant circular space was caused by the suction of said super tornado. I can't explain it in proper terms, or what exactly caused it, as I'm not astrophysicist , but I know that is somewhere in the ballpark to the basic mechanics of what was happening.

Amazing. And it brings new ideas on FTL travel in my Space Cowboy setting.
