Who wrote that piece of fluff? Or, since it includes Blud Rehvens, is it from a DoW game?

If yes, then it doesn't have to make sense.

In Dark Crusade, Grey Knights are introduced as a new playable unit for the Space Marine faction. While the Blood Ravens get up to some pretty questionable stuff in the campaign, the Grey Knights are never explicitly stated to have been there... until Chaos Rising, where their presence is mentioned in the description for a piece of wargear they left behind to the Blood Ravens. Which also happens to be one of several Grey Knight items the Blood Ravens own.

Well they did put noise marines in, but as for daemons. I don't see why it's a problem. Slaaneshi daemons are fast, high damage, fragile melee units. Add in abilities which cause them to reduce the effectiveness and perhaps suppress nearby infantry, and they'd work just fine.

I'm not saying remove Khornite daemons, just give the other gods a chance. Bloodletters are useful against armour due to their swords, combine that with slower speed than daemonettes but higher health, and you have two different units fulfilling different roles.

Violence = Natural

Sexuality = Unnatural

From the moment we are enter this world we are exposed to violence. From the horrifying experience of being born where the air painfully fill your little lungs to being beaten up by schoolyard bullies. Every human beings knows violence.

Sexuality is a different matter. If you get exposed to it in the wrong time and place it could mess you up both mentally and psychically. So it must be controlled.

Not sexy but perfect.

So just because you're a psyker, Khorne will not touch you? And Khorne is not anti-sorcery. SCIENCE! does not summon his daemons, bind them to machines, make his runes ward of sorcery, gift his champions with power and make his magical weapons and armour all magicy.

>> No.18922041


The point still stands that Khorne's daemons, gifts and weapons are ALL magical.

Also in Epic Khorne warmachines were some of the shootiest in the game, he wasn't all "durr rip and tear, rip and tear" he had a respect for machines that could kill hundreds at a time too, even if there blasts didn't leave many skulls intact.

>> No.18922061

At the end of the day Khornate demons still need a way into the materium. The only ways in are warp storms, sorcery rituals, or psykers.

In Dark Disciple, Marduk summons Bloodletters without a warp storm, ritual or any psykers. Likewise, in the previous CSM codex, a pack of daemons, again Bloodletters, are drawn out of the Warp to a battle between Space Marines and Chaos cultists simply by the carnage caused.

There ritual require sacrifices and chanting, just like oh say, an act of sorcery. Face it, it looks like a duck, it quacks like a duck, it swims like a duck, it a mother fucking duck. Khorne only uses sorcery to get his resources where they need to be, using them in battle directly is what he views as a tabo.

For a chapter that values knowledge so much, they can be awfully retarded at times.

I probably would have secured it far away deep inside a forge world for research and careful, cautious study. Inquisition you say? Heh, we'll keep them tied up in bureaucratic bullshit for a century. Plenty of time to figure out what we have on our hands....

Maybe Khorne makes a distinction between Psykers (rarely tolerated) and Sorcerers (KILL, MAIM, BURN)?

It seems like an easy way of solving this particular canon dispute.

It's the same thing. Psyker = sorcerer, sorcerer = psyker.

>> No.18922403

And what's his connection with Kyras?

>> No.18922406

Same thing basically, Khorne despises both, hence why none of his daemons or champions, besides DoW have psychic powers.

>> No.18922443

Psykers are an inherent mutation.

Sorcery can be learned.

>> No.18922451

The game is pretty vague about it, but here goes my attempt: at some point after the Black Legion attack on Aurelia, Kyras met Maledictus and allowed himself to be possessed. However, rather than Maledictus simply taking over Kyras's body, the corrupt Chapter Master was allowed to keep his own thoughts and personality. Kyras then went on to orchestrate the various daemonic incursions and uprisings in the sub-sector, drawing the attention of the Inquisition, who finally sent a fleet to enact Exterminatus upon the Aurelian worlds. Kyras planned to use the resulting deaths to ascend to daemonhood, without spilling so much as a single drop of blood himself.

>> No.18922522

Both are different means to the same ends, Khorne approves of neither.

>> No.18922660

I would suppose the problem is mostly in the minds of his followers, what with Chaos Gods only kind of making sense sometimes. Maybe.

'Khorne hates magic so we slay its users wherever we find them. That guy who uses magic to hulk out before battle? Oh no no no, that's not magic, it's a daemonic gift.'

'Khorne is the enemy of sorcerers and his minions must sift them as wheat. The shaman scrying the future next to Lord Bloodkill? No no no no no, that's not sorcery, he's a priest, he's reading the Will of Khorne.'
