you cannot have sex with the Xenos. They don't let you. You may be in their ranks but they find YOU to be an abomination. They will use you till you die. They will separate you from the main society. They don't care for you, they don't care if you exist.

The Imperium doesn't care if you life or die, but the Imperium cares that you exist. Afterall who does the Imperium fight for? the land? the trade? the wealth? Ultimately the Imperium fights to save humanities existence. A planet or two is acceptable to the ultimate cause of "survive" The Imperium is harsh the imperium is cruel. The imperium is this way because it knows that there is no better way to safeguard humanity from the evil that lurks in the galaxy. They don't care if you are happy or alive. You are one man, but as one man you have a chance to become something greater than yourself. Something that serves with a purpose in mind. To defend those who cannot defend themselves from monsters not even you understand.

The Tau may have the quality of life, but it is an empty existence, a selfish existence. The Imperium gives your life meaning, your death purpose. The tau trade you for a few more moments to get their soldiers out. The Imperium fights for humanity, fights for survival. They fight for the good of ALL mankind, not your happiness, but that you can even exist in this horrible wretched galaxy.

The imperium fights for the TRUE greater good.

I think 40k can work as a serious setting on a small scale

Like Dead men walking, that book was nails
But on the larger scale when not dealing with grunts it doesn't make sense to treat it as a hard edged serious setting

But then when they go to war shit suddenly becomes horrible

It's not that bad in the Tau. Sure you have to go along with everything like in the imperium, but in the Tau empire, if you go along with it you'll get a decent house and life, in the Imperium you're set for a shit life whatever so you might as well do some crime.

The novel had a picture of Cain fighting alongside the Tau versus the Tyranids. I thought we gonna get some nice Imperial and Tau action going on in the novel.

But No! All I got is Tau ambassador appearing in a few pages and then buggering off, and then the whole book turned into just Cain being chased around by Tyranids. No glorious Tau and Imperial alliance, just more boring Imperial shenanigans!

First book where they appear: They're mostly portrayed as incompetent idiots. One squad of Sisters recklessly charges alone and unsupported into a Tyranid swarm, and promptly gets nearly wiped out. And of course, that entire order is utterly duped by a radical Inquisitor and ends up commiting mass suicide.

Second book: We have a Sister Julien, a Sister who smokes, drinks, gambles and has secret affairs. To be fair, I can see what Sandy Mitchell was going for. A "too old for this shit" sort of character. It doesn't really work for Sisters though, they're all brainwashed at an early age into behaving in a very proper, disciplined way. Next, and entire order that literally exists to show off how powerful that mind controlling psyker Varan is.

Right. I think you've gotten a couple of terms mixed up here.

Pariahs are 'soulless', and their very presence and touch is anathema to psykers and daemonic entities. Fire a psychic blast at a pariah, and they will walk through it like it didn't happen. A side effect of this is a general aura of unease and mistrust aimed at the Pariah. For examples look at the Culexus Assassain (Although their wargear ramps these effects up to 11), the Daemon Huntress' little kid from Inquisitor, or the Distaff from the Eisenhorn series.

'Blunts' has two meanings in 40k.
1 - A derogatory slang term used by some psykers to describe non-psykers.
2 - A being/species which, while not a Pariah, is physically incapable of manifesting psychic abilities, shows -some- resistance to Chaos-based mutation/influence (although chemicals and radioactivity can alter the genome as usual, and the influence resistance is speculative), and is affected by psychic powers normally. In addition to this, their 'soul' is incredibly difficult for warp entities to detect. Where an Eldar Farseer would shine like a star, a regular Human would shine like a campfire, and a Tau would be an ember in the wind. They can be found, and spotted, but provide very little sustenance to Daemons, when there are much better prizes, for much less effort.

Actually, machines DO have spirits in 40K. Some do. Sort of. Either way, one time a tank crew got murdered inside their tank and the tank got so pissed it hunted orks all by itself for like a month before it ultimately killed their Warboss in a suicidal bumrush.
>>25794095
They really aren't though. They get incredibly impassioned about their machines. In fact, the Admech hates the Tau because they think they are abusing their machine spirits.

But they do need, it though. Sometimes Sisters are cast a little too far into the "raging lunatic" zone.

Soulstorm, for example, was quite a good portrayal. The Sisters are all very zealous and relgious, but at the same time they're protrayed as tactically aware and disciplined soldiers, not just a horde of raving zealots.

Also, pic related. Some Orders actually are fairly reasonable acting.

That, too. I just wish they would stop trying to "fix" sisters, usually because while giant shoulderpads and fending off giant alien bugdinos in nothing more than your Nazi fetish suit doesnt bother them, boobplate and battleheels are suddenly too unreasonable for 40K.
>>25794315
So what you're saying is that Sisters are perfectly fine as they are, its just that everyone has a shitty misconception of them because the only thing they know about SoBs is Ciaphas Cain, which is an utterly fucktarded representation of them? Glad to see we are on the same page.

Does someone have an mp3 of the audiodrama?
12 bucks is a bit high for an audiodrama in english imho due to most english audiodramas pulling out the worst of the worst voice actors...i'd buy it just like faith&fire if it's worth it though, black library sometimes gets a surprising spike of quality
