It's not all about sadism, torture, and related horror. There's also beauty, art, music. Pleasure of the senses. There is greed, lust for power, followers, love, and knowledge.

That's because people latch onto it without understanding it and start spreading misinformation. Case in point, Slaanesh is also all about extreme perfectionism and seeking new experiences.

Point of order, perfectionism is not inherently a domain of Slaanesh. That was just a thing from the Emperor's Children, which they turned into an obsession after getting Slaanesh'd up.

At its core, Slaanesh is about excess. Whether it's obsessing about one particular thing or never being satisfied with any single one is secondary.

Not at all. Excessive lust for anything is the purview of Slaanesh as well. Excessive lust for carnage is the weird grey area between Khorne and Slaanesh. Excessive lust for knowledge and power is grey area between Tzeench and Slaanesh. STDs are the unfortunate grey area between Nurgle and Slaanesh.

It's all about the expression of excess. On the one hand, music that's fucking loud and fucking crazy is taking the "some=good, therefore more=better" line of thought to it's logical extreme, so that's certainly a form of excess. On the other, spending decades working to ensure each minute portion of your soft and subtle masterpiece is perfect, to the point where, say, you work ten thousand slaves to death building a continent-sized perfectly soundproofed isolation room to work in, is also a form of excessive interest. The difference is that in the latter, only the composer is worshiping Slaanesh, as only the means of it's production is excessive rather then the end result, while in the former, both creator and listener are practicing excess, so naturally Slaanesh would prefer the ear-bleedingly loud shit.

Not necessarily that all people are greedy and selfish. But all people do desire for new experiences. It's what drives art, music, sex, culinary arts. It's why Crayola has more than 9 colors. It's why we meet new people, go new places, try new things.

It's why sky diving and bungee jumping are a thing we do for fun. It's why the X-Games exist, why gymnastics have evolved over the last 60 years.

Things get bigger, faster, louder, more extreme. Because we recognize that there IS more out there, and we are honest and open about wanting it bad enough that we risk our lives to grab it.

Well that also depends on how that soft and subtle masterpiece ends up.

Like, he spends so much time on composing that single song and spends his entire being on doing so that it ends up becoming some sort of song that once you hear it you yearn to hear it again and a again until that song doesn't satisfy your needs and you end up spending every waking our wanting more and more in the end converting you to Slaanesh.

Kinda like in Fulgrim where Bequa Kynska composes that opera, except it was for already depraved fuckjobs. So a depraved fuckjob makes a song that regular folks can enjoy that in the end makes them depraved fuckjobs.

I think that Slaanesh would love that.

All the chaos gods have a degree of overlap. The Slaaneshi sadist who gets off on inflicting pain and misery could be considered, from a certain point of view, to be empowering Khorne slightly by their taking joy in bloodshed. The sorcerer of Tzeentch who spends decades perfecting his master plan is indirectly empowering Slaanesh though his obsessive perfectionism. The berserker who reaches insane heights of rage is feeling an extreme of emotion, which could be considered to fall under Slaanesh's purview. Nurgle's worshipers experience change before they reach stagnation, and the love he bears for his followers also falls slightly under Slaanesh's domain. Slaanesh, meanwhile, inspires almost as much change as Tzeentch does, as gifts and mutations are given, experimented with, warped and used for every possible experience, and destroyed once they become boring to make room for the next.
It's foolish to say that each god's purview belongs to them and them alone, since Chaos at its base is raw emotion, and no emotion is ever so precise. But despite that, it's also foolish to claim that one god or another is more powerful then the others because "their domain covers everything", since that street goes both ways.
In the end, what really matters is the mindset behind the action. Killing for the sake of killing serves Khorne, killing for the joy of causing pain serves Slaanesh, killing to move forward a plot decades in the making serves Tzeentch, killing for the sake of stillness and stagnation serves Nurgle, and all of the above can serve anyone if it's dedicated to them.

They give blessings to followers who please them, and to please them requires that one have an emotional mindset that aligns with that god's sphere of influence. Physical gifts follow after emotional dedication, which is what the chaos gods are really after. People aren't rewarded with emotional changes because anyone worth rewarding already feels those emotions. For example, a Khornite warrior who enters a particularly great rage and slaughters a town may be given a daemon weapon by Khorne as a token of favor.

The wreckage of his aircraft had been left untouched once the homing equipment had been removed and was left as scrap – the Fio declaring that it would never fly again (and should never have flown in the first place!), yet it appears that the Ork was not only able to break his bonds, but to get his craft into the air.

And it's not that their emotions are random. It's that emotions are the opposite of rationality. Emotions cause people to lose control. That loss of control, for whatever reason, is what drives Chaos.

But then only one was ever an option for you.
For you liked it more than the others, when the others five were of equal (as far as we know) bad quality, which lead to you not ingesting them.
But if we imagine that all six were of equal quality, then would you not dedicate yourself to each one for the purpose of enjoying an appetizer.

It's not so much them granting the mutations though.

What happens is your body is filled with warp energy of their particular "flavour" or "stream". This energy, being effectively the raw matter of creation, flows through your body, shaping it randomly into bizarre shapes.
The fact the energy is associated with one of the four does lend some slightly stability to the shaping (khorne's energy being more likely to turn your skin into armour, etc), although there's always some randomness.

Of course, sometimes the body can't handle the warp energy, and can't shut down the innate gateway between the materium and immaterium (dubbed the "soul" by some), the changes then become uncontrollable, leaving the wretch a gibbering heap of constantly mutating flesh.

In this example, the Chaos God is NOT the restaurant, but is the person. They are paying for their food (emotion) with money (blessings and mutations) The Gods are not all about mutations (money) because they do not need mutations (money) to survive. They need emotion (food) to survive, which their followers (the restaurant) produces and serves to them.

Yeah but you see, the chaos gods ARE warp energy.

The whole anthropomorphising of them by cultists is a way of treating with things which are so far beyond them as to be barely qualifiable as entities.

Put it like this, a chaos warrior, devoted to Khorne, kills people and sacrifices them to Khorne. Khorne grants the warrior a mutation, this turns out to awaken his psychic potential, and thus Khorne seeks to kill him.
This is a perfectly possible situation. Gifts and mutations are merely rationalizations for the hand of some unthinkable essense which is part of a realm of unpredictable energies.

I never doubted or said that they don't need emotions, I said you need a proper mindset to get a blessing from a god (which makes the gods part in the deal majorly physical) while a cultist need a mindset with the proper emotions or will to serve a good (which makes their part of the deal majorly about the emotions).

I'm talking about the deal between cultist-god, you're talking about what a god needs. Different topics, same thinking.

I don't really want to delve into blabbering about the characters or setting-related figures, so I'll explain what I meant by the appetizers.
The appetizers were to be the options, they are equal in that they are equally available to the person seeking them, so that all will possess an equal chance of being chosen then.
The options are both good and bad, when considering the well-being of the person. The individual will most likely go through events that are alike in everything but their thematics or other fine nuances.

No, what I was saying is that Chaos Undecided is the fat person at applebee's who can't figure out what appetizer they want, so they order the sampler plate and eat all of them. The appetizers being the chaos gods.

If all appetizers were equal, then they'd be the same appetizer, just like if all chaos gods were equal, they'd all be the same god.

But this is not so.

The example in >>22972260 was in response to the guy saying that Chaos Gods only care about the physical because those are the form their blessings tend to take. I was explaining that he had it backwards because those physical blessings are what WE want, as physical beings. The chaos gods, who are NOT physical beings, have no need for physical mutations, but rather use them to trade for the emotions that they feed off of, the way a restaurant gives the food that people need in exchange for the money that people can't eat.

The reason the restaurant/customer analogy works is because of the symbiotic relationship between the god and the cultist. They each give and take from each other, and it's an easy way to get fat people to understand what I'm talking about.

>> No.22972426

>>22972366
Well no, I was merely meaning that a blessing may be from the chaos gods, but it is not necessarily to their will. They influence the mutation through their dominant stream.
A khornate getting a mutation is more likely to be martially focused, but this is not because Khorne wants them to gain, say, an axe growing from their arm, but because of the emotion of rage will bring out offensive aspects to their body.

I realise this is all rather chicken and egg though, and I appologise if I'm not making my self clear.
