Let's assume the Chaos Gods as a concept existed in the real world but had no real "army" or large-scale influence. No, the real world isn't suddenly over-run by spawn, spess maroons, Ahriman browsing the Black Library website screaming at the laptop for not letting him read the texts within etc. Just the Chaos Gods and their good/bad domains. There's also no Emprah or anything of the sort. For the sake of this thread, we assume it's more-or-less not a big deal that Chaos exists nor do they have the focus of fucking the universe.

Which would you feel fits your person?
Which God would you choose?
What kind of blessings do you think you'd receive?
How would they change your life?

I'd like everyone to think hard on these questions and give sincere answers, preferably not over the top. Remember there's still law enforcement, morality and all that present.

>> No.22010952

Also! You're welcome to pick Malal or Undivided as well, provided you give reasons as to why that fits your real-life character and personality. Go nuts!

Slaanesh would fit my personality most, but not in the tentacle-fuckery kind of way.
I like drink, good times and exess, and if id get a blessing, it would be the inability to feel hangovers (tougth i think this blessing belongs more to Nurgle ).
If the Gods are indeed "saturday morning chaos" and will not make me into a superjunkie, my life would be much the same, but with me in a lot better mood all the time.

Old thread concept is old - but always fun.

Slaanesh would eat my ass, puns probably intended. This isn't because I am like "lol boobs" or at all really overly sexual (at least, not to my viewpoint). However, aspects of my personal tastes and temperament already tilt me in the Dark Prince's direction.

- I tend towards the excessive and theatrical, but with a heavy focus on the details....I am told my wardrobe is rather impractical, for example.

- On the other hand, I have a massive (diagnosed) case of OCPD, which means I am constantly driving myself insane with neurotic levels of obsessiveness and perfectionism.

These combined factors probably would give Slaanesh an easy in, I'd assume.

>> No.22011174

Continuing from >>22011127

I personally think that the key to being a "successful" worshiper of Chaos (rather than soon-to-be-food) is that the individual probably already had that sort of personality in the first place, so they weren't overwhelmed when Chaos started turning up the volume.

And I'd totes be aiming for Demonic Princehood. In the meantime, I'd really appreciate the ability to maybe manipulate people into funding my access a little better. Shit costs money. (Or maybe I just need to lower my scruples a little more?)

I think Malal would definitely fit me. I consider myself generally Undivided though.

I'm lazy, I don't shower for days unless I'm actually going out/having visitors over, I REALLY don't take loved ones' deaths well, I'm impulsive, I value honour, courage and honesty, I covet hope, I'm always trying to better myself, OCD on my own brand of perfectionism, Severe anger-management issues, Bizarre habits and thoughts, Sex-maniac, very indulgent, narcissistic to a degree.

I think I would embody all the gods but as you can see, I'm a walking contradiction, which is why I think ultimately I'm bound for Malal but not by choice (which is actually fitting, him being the rebel god). I'd imagine the gift I would recieve is the ability to see through all kinds of deception and the ability to change them if I so wish, with each god's chosen domains waxing and waning at random times.

I don't actually see how most of these things are one god or another. "Lazy" could be because you're too busy indulging yourself, or because you'd rather manipulate minions into doing it, or because you don't think anything is worth the effort because you've got better shit to do, or because you don't think ANYTHING is worth the effort of doing. Not showering for days? Maybe you like to shock people, or are too busy with your "projects", or you like it, or you don't notice...all of which may or may not have anything to do with a personality trait that would be relevant to one of the Chaos gods. And so on. And, no offense, but this being the internet, I'm going to assume your descriptions of your "issues" as a bit exaggerated.

Doing normal variances of normal things that normal people do isn't enough to get the special attention of the Chaos Gods. You have to be off the bell-chart.

I am too disinterested in laws or, more correctly, too disinterested in breaking laws or being anarchic to please Malal. I am pretty neutral by my reckoning.
Khorne just won't work - i'm far and very much dislike physical activities. He'd look down on me and whine, but i don't care about that shizznits. Also, is this 40K Khorne or Fantasy? I do very much like honour and decency in battles, even in bloodbaths.

This is why i would not pick Tzeentch, unless i can somehow make him agree (Tzeentch doesn't straight out LIE in your face right? Just the underhanded does-not-mention-certain-bad-things type, right?) to a deal that will give me ONE boom/effect in exchange for ONE part. Like you said, poke an eye out to know what to go for on the stockmarket for the next week. However, if he subtly 'forgets' to mention that the stock market will collapse the second to last day, i'd be "ok" with that, as in that's technically within the agreements. But there's no chance i'd do if it if i can't get him to agree on very very specific effects on me and the people i care about.

The whole concept that they are emotions given form. Thoroughly corrupt and perverted and yet can still embody good wholesome traits, because that's how emotions are. You can hate someone so much you feel you can go insane, you can loathe their very essence yet you can still sometimes find yourself admiring them and seeking their attention even if you think they are beneath you completely. Fictional or not, they represent an umbrella for embracing the myriad emotions and traits that make us human. Worshipping chaos is embracing your humanity.

By worshipping chaos, you're not letting yourself indulge in negative things 24/7, you'd simply be embracing them, instead of avoiding them. Worshipping human nature, embracing the myriad of possibilities you are capable of. Don't shy away from decadence, from violence, from hate, from rage, from spite, from lust, from jealousy. Embrace them just as much as you embrace things like love, altruism, kindness, generosity. The negative emotions don't make you less of a human, they make you a COMPLETE human. If anything, by NOT worshipping chaos, you are denying half of your nature, staying an incomplete individual. Imbalanced by choice.

Holy shit, I never actually noticed. That was more of what I had gleaned from a previous thread a while ago entertaining the thought that the Chaos Gods exist in the real world and don't have any power but DO govern emotion. We came to the conclusion that you can genuinely worship Chaos as a proper religion, as it's completely based on faith like all the rest AND that it take cues from LaVeyan Satanism, in that you're not worshipping SATAN but merely using him as a figurehead for worshipping yourself. In this regard, you're using the Chaos Gods as figureheads to simply group emotions up and worshipping all the highs and lows of human nature, embracing your potential.

But yeah, I guess you can say I'm a Word Bearer.

But seriously. Depending on whether we are using 40k universe or Chaos-in-our-universe, changes whether this is true or a lot of crap. Arguably, any massive amount of emotion could amass in the Warp and coalesce into a God, including positive emotions. In 40k terms, though, the universe is a shitty place and those weak gods/emotions get swallowed. The whole concept of "chaos is humanity just being itself!" is a line of bullshit fed to some of the more philosophically-inclined human dupes.

In now-world, depending on how cynical your view of existence is, it could be reasoned there are strong "good"gods out there in the warp.

I think Slaanesh fits my personality best. I'm something of a hedonist (though more in the sense that I work to feed my numerous hobbies than because I like sex), I'm an artist by trade, and I'm told I'm a bit of a perfectionist.

All this said, I would choose Tzeentch over Slaanesh. I value knowledge and overall sneakiness, and I'm always looking out for how things could be changed for the better. If I were to receive a blessing, I think I'd like an eye that gives me the supernatural ability to detect any kind of falsehood. Spoken lies, written lies, forgeries, all that shit. If it was very good, I would hopefully be able to detect indirect falsehoods as well (say, when somebody's trying to lure me into a trap in a game). As for how it would change my life, it would at the very least make me a damn good appraiser. The downside is that knowing the exact extent of how much people lie to each other on a daily basis might well drive me nuts. Especially if I read something like, "There is no alien technology nor alien remains at Area 51," and my super-eye started itching.

That doesn't really address my point. My point is that it's simply not true that the Chaos Gods are reflections/manifestations/whatever of aspects of humanity....not in 40k anyway. Additionally, while it may or may not be true that "worshiping chaos is embracing your humanity", it does not explain why embracing one's humanity is a good thing. Many philosophies teach the rejection of the past, of the old, of the primitive, in order to make ourselves more pure, or to grow, or to advance.

Frankly, I don't think of Warp Entities as "gods" anyway, they're just beings be haven't evolved proper senses to experience. Like, there are fish born in the deep sea with no eyes - does that mean light doesn't exist, or that we're invisible? Of course not.

If the concept of humanity itself is static, as in we only consider how we behave now as the only definiton of humanity, we will come to a point when the "human way" becomes obsolete or out-of-date. Treating it as something natural only encourages stagnation.

>> No.22014538

>>22013235

Yeah, no. The thing is that all of the "evil" characteristics you so "violently and vehemently denounce" have flipsides. Khorne is the god of martial honour and righteous war, Slaanesh is the god of improvement and love, Tzeench is the god of hope and change for the better, and Nurgle is the god of life as much as it is the god of death.

You sir, are a narrow minded buffoon.

>>So you WOULD actually worship the Chaod "Gods" as in proper entities that govern emotion in the real world?
>>I'd love to hear you explain your views.

To be honest, I'm undecided, if it were real. If we're keeping with 40k concepts, it seems that all deaths are shitty and end in being soul-swallowed by warp entities no matter what you do. The biggest exception is if you are a "successful" worshiper of Chaos, which will keep you "alive" in some way, so you'll retain some individuality...and continue to suffer for all eternity. Neither of these seems terribly pleasant.

But, I know many people fear oblivion far more than they do an afterlife. Non-existence, the complete loss of individuality, scares the piss out of some folks. So it seems reasonable that someone might seek to guarantee that doesn't happen.

(Also, I wouldn't say they "govern" emotions in the sense of "control" them. I think they "feed" on them and are "powered" by them, and can probably influence a sentient being. But we're making our own emotions.)

>> No.22014618

Nurgle or Slaanesh

Nurgle

Not sure, immortality, immunity to pain, the usual. Likely at the cost of either turn turning into a bloated bag of puss or a spindly set of walking bones with my flesh coming off. (I'd prefer the latter)

Not sure, I'm on the path to becoming a pathologist so it could go either way. I might have a generally more in tune understanding of the nature of disease

>> No.22014685

>>22014586
Ahhh, I see. Yes, the whole non-existence thing really sucks for any non-believer. Religious people face death with a smile and a genuine hope of better things to come. Definitely the selling point of any faith.

I see, so you'd worship them as entities that simply make use of your personal emotions as a power source. In that case, what if the power each "God" had was dependent on the individual? A person who heavily leans towards Khorne's emotions would rarely if ever get aid from Nurgle, Tzeentch or Slaanesh. Perhaps in this way, someone who made use of each and every emotion would be classed as Undivided, having the support of all 4.

>> No.22014704

Continuing >>22014586

But anyway, like I mentioned above, it seems like the vast majority of folks don't have the....strength of individuality? Maybe? Not sure what to call it. Most people are on the bell curve. Most people who attempt to attempt to follow Chaos get stopped. That's why the Primarchs in particular were so uniformly successful, because they were some unique individuals with strong personal identities and wills, combined with the capability to make their wills reality. That's what gets the Gods' attention. Humans can do it too, but being an evil dick isn't really enough - there's plenty of evil dicks around.

So really, if I was going to worship Chaos, let's say Slaanesh, I would start making my will - which is coincidentally pleasing to Slaanesh - manifest in the world. Daemonic Aescention seems to take a massive generation of emotional energy (death works well) to power, but also must be a proper "gift" of devotion to gain the God's favor. (Am I rambling?)

JULIUS WATCHED WITH barely contained excitement as the blue haired composer crossed the stage and descended into the orchestra pit to take her place on her conductor’s podium. Dressed in a scandalously translucent dress of gold and crimson, the gossamer thin material hung with precious stones that glittered like stars. The cut of her dress plunged from her shoulders to her pelvis, the swell of her breasts and the hairlessness of her flesh clearly visible beneath.
‘Magnificent!’ cried Fulgrim, clapping furiously with the audience at Bequa’s appearance, and Julius was amazed to see tears in his eyes.
Julius nodded, and though he had no real memory of feminine splendour or any frame of reference against which to compare her, the composer’s curves and obvious womanhood stole away his breath. Julius had felt such stirrings of emotion when he gazed upon his primarch, heard a particularly inspiring piece of music or went into battle, but to feel his senses aroused by a mortal woman was a new experience for him.

Probably just super strength and magic resistance. But I'd like to think I'd get more as I start just saying "fuck it" and murder people.

>> No.22015228

>>22015218
Thick silence enveloped the audience as they waited for the magic to happen, the collective breath of nearly ten thousand throats held fast as the moment of anticipation stretched to breaking point. Bequa selected a mnemo-baton and tapped it on the libretto stand before launching into the opening bars of the Maraviglia’s overture.
Tremendous noise erupted from the orchestra pit as the first notes blared from the newly conceived musical devices, the sound reaching to every corner of La Venice with its wonderful instrumentation, romantic beauty and hints of themes yet to come. Julius felt himself carried on a journey of the senses as the music rose and fell, emotions he had never experienced plucked from the depths of his soul and brought joyously to the fore as the crashing beats and wild, skirling tunes wound their way through the audience.
He wanted to laugh and then cry, and then he felt a terrible anger build, before it bled away and a great melancholy settled upon him. Within moments the music had torn that loose, and a soaring elation asserted itself with the utmost lucidity and force, as though all that had gone before was merely the prelude to some grand design yet to be unveiled.
Bequa Kynska thrashed like a lunatic atop her conductor’s podium, jabbing and slashing the air with her baton, her hair a wild comet of blue as it whipped around her head. Julius tore his eyes from the magnificent sight of her and looked out over the audience to witness its reaction to this sublime, raucous music.

>> No.22015238

>>22015228
He saw faces rapt in stunned disbelief, eyes wide as the power and majesty of the dissonant sounds penetrated every skull and spoke to every soul of the sensations evoked. But not every member of the audience appeared to appreciate the wonder of what they were privileged to witness, and Julius saw many with their hands clamped over their ears in the throes of agony as the music swelled once more. Julius caught sight of the slender figure of Evander Tobias in the audience, and his anger grew as he watched the ungrateful wretch lead a group of his fellow scriveners through the crowd towards the exit.
Scuffles broke out and the recalcitrant archivist and his fellows were attacked, fists pummelling them to the ground where they were kicked and beaten. Without pause, the audience returned its attention to the stage, and Julius felt a fierce pride swell in his breast as he watched a heavy boot crunch down on Tobias’s skull. None remarked upon the sudden, bloody violence, as if it had been the most natural reaction, but Julius could see the bloodlust spread throughout the audience like a virus or the shockwave of a detonation.
The music swept onwards, rising and sweeping around La Fenice like a whirlwind, until at last it reached the thunderous crescendo of its climax, whereupon the curtain rose in a flurry of dramatic and spectacular sensations.

Julius rose to his feet as the peals of music drove ever onward, the overture continuing in an unbroken melody of sounds, and the sheer visceral emotions that filled him on seeing what lay beyond was like a punch to the guts.
The interior of the Laer temple had been recreated in painstaking detail, its eye-watering colours and dimensions faithfully recreated by the artists and sculptors who had walked within its magnificence.
Vivid lights flashed around the theatre, and Julius felt a momentary disorientation as more music blasted from the orchestra, a new piece with darker overtones and an aching sense of imminent tragedy. The waves of sound and harmony flowed outwards from the stage and over the audience, immersing them in the power and sensations he had first felt when he had followed Fulgrim into the temple.
The effect was immediately obvious, and a shudder of pleasure rippled through the audience as the powerful notes flowed into and through them. Dizzying colours flashed through the air, and as the music built to yet another high, a second spotlight stabbed onto the stage. The slender form of Coraline Aseneca, the prima donna of the Maraviglia, appeared.

Julius had never heard Coraline’s voice before and was unprepared for the sheer virtuosity and power of her singing. Her tone was in perfect, discordant harmony with Bequa’s music, reaching heights no human voice could possibly attain. Yet attain them she did, the energy of her soprano’s voice reaching beyond the realms of the five senses, all of which were being stimulated it seemed to Julius.
He leaned forwards, laughing uncontrollably as an intoxicating rush of emotions seized him, and he clasped his hands to his head at such overstimulation. A chorus joined Coraline Aseneca on stage, though Julius hardly noticed them, their intermingled voices allowing the soprano’s voice to swoop through even more unfeasible notes, which reached into the very hindbrain to pluck at sensory apparatus Julius was not even aware he possessed.
Julius forced himself to look away from the stage, enthralled and terrified by what he was seeing and hearing. What manner of being could hear music of such terrible power and retain his sanity? Man was not meant to listen to this, the birthing cry of a beautiful and terrible god as it forced its way into existence.

perhaps as far as using you as an example to other people. Let's take a very common example: Hitler. This man's afterlife glows with

I may favor tzeench, because distpite my fault, people tend to like(see begrudgingly tolerate) me. they also think i am a nice guy, so they almost never suspect it when i manipulate them.

mostly I tend to trick people out of self destructive action, but i am still playing off their character, emotions, and logical failings when i do it.

It wouldn't work as a religion because people don't "need" gods anymore, and they "want" philosophy. The philosophy of Chaos is fine, but you will never get anyone to accept personified emotions as something to honor or at least even accept. Draw poignancy from whatever you want, but don't make it sound like your starting a religion. Religions are outdated concepts to begin with.

Slaanesh was born when Eldar stopped needing gods.

If you'd paid attention, the religion proposed here doesn't really propose gods, it proposes philosophies to live buy using the framework of the Chaos gods as examples of human aspects.

Second, considering motherfuckers keep making up new religions all the time, I'd daresay the need for Gods has not gone away.

People fear change and people also need SOMETHING to believe in, much like how Atheists treat Science as a religion and Dawkins and other champions as their bishops. Regardless, it's not a religion of sorts, it's a belief system with a message rooted in modern thinking, more in line with non-believers than any antiquated religion.

When did Atheists start treating science as a religion?

>>22027385
I read what you said. My point is, it's all fine if you want to codify your belief system. Why the hell does it have anything to do with the Chaos Gods? You might as well replace the names of the gods with colors, or types of food. It's a silly exercise that simply takes alot of already existing ideas and sticks the word Khorne on top of them.

Well if you look at it from a practical point of view, Science totally blows every other religion out of the water. I mean its got reliable, reproducible miraculous healing for one. What has Jehovah done for you lately?

It's because people find it far easier to follow a philosophy or way of life when there's symbols and labels attached. Humans flock to such things, it's one of the reasons Christianity, Islam, Judaism and other things have gained such momentum, there's a figure. Buddhism doesn't really have a figure because Buddha isn't it. One can BECOME a Buddha because it's a title, not a being.

Beliefs systems don't need a figure but humans just plain find it far easier when there is one.

Have you ever met a militant Atheist or seen a few of those assholes on youtube? The hate they extrude towards religion and the bold defence they put up for science is pretty much just another brand of fanaticism.

And yeah, Science does have actual proof and abilities but we're not talking about that are we?

My bad, I apologize I worded it badly, I didn't mean it like that. I'm just saying Atheists CAN treat Science with the same reverence as a religious person might look to his beliefs.

We can even tie in other philosophies and religions fairly easily.

Hell, we can incorporate The Eightfold Path wholesale. Put in hooks and references to things like Gnosticism and the more abstract parts of Hinduism and you can have those, too.

Various animistic religions like Shinto could be tied in easily - just allow for lesser spirits, like those born of emotion directed towards a particular appliance.

We can solve the problem of evidence and miracles easily enough - just pronounce that the Gods work via coincidence and biasing propability towards certain outcomes.

As for the afterlife - the Warp is defined to work on perception - you get what you see, which is what you *are* - and coagulation of similar things - i.e. the law of sympathy - weak emotions will be stripped away, migrating to those more accomodating of them.
An angry man with a strong sense of compassion becomes a spirit of righteous wrath, losing his ambition and love, for exaple.

The various demons are aspects of the gods, which themselves are aspects of Chaos, which is the same as the Warp. Thus, the principle of Hierarchy is applicable - you are tied to those things you resemble the most, and become more like them.

Thus, the man from the previous example would, depending on his actions post-mortem, find himself drawn either to Khorne (Retribution), Nurgle (Benevolence) or Tzeentch (Answering Hopes and Prayers).

This would also nicely tie in with ancestor worship.

That is an amazing chunk of information. Please, feel free to write something on how you'd include it in the pdf and i'll happily include it. I admit I don't know much about most of the faiths you describe, only having a basic understanding.

Also, try to keep it as simple to understand as possible and keep the message. Those are really the only two rules. We must keep it streamlined so people can read and understand it and we want the message to be clear so there's no DEUS VULT bullshit.

>Which would you feel fits your person?
Probably Nurgle. I'm a depressed, lazy, apathetic procrastinator. And, to be honest, my hygiene isn't so great, either. A bit of Slaanesh, too, though. I like my drugs, I like "intense" music that touches me emotionally, and I love novel experiences. Oh, and I'm a total pervert. The things I've fapped to, mang.
>Which God would you choose?
Slaanesh. Definitely Slaanesh.
>What kind of blessings do you think you'd receive?
Well, I have no idea. But I'd LIKE to be able to trip at will. Any trip I want at anytime. Feces would be money. And probably something kinky, like tentacles, or something.
>How would they change your life?
I don't think I'd ever leave my house again. Not I do that much, anyhow.
