I'm running a Star Trek setting, so odds are the setting is fucked. I don't think technobabble or caring about principles is going to do much when what's necessary is bolters to the face and purging the tainted.

Something as the chaos would be readily studied by the Federation and they'd developt technology, psycho-technical tests to detect taint and experiment with cleansing. In warhammer, chaos is a big threat, and part of what makes it so awful is that the things used to fight chaos often feed it: Hatred, strict conduct codes and stressful living conditions (that lead people to go overboard when blowing off steam or trying to escape, feeding slaanesh, or conspire, feeding nurgle). Terrible sanitation that feeds nurgle, along with a great uncare for the average health of it's citizens.

I dont mean to say that teleporting demons with no will to negotiate wouldn't be a problem in a Star Trek setting. But I do believe the problem would be handle differently and perhaps, solved more easily for that.

tl;dr: The threat of chaos is, partially, a product of the enviroment of the warhammer setting. Doesn't mean it would, necessarily, be as invincebile and unending in other settings depending on how people act.

>> No.43838845

Easily, my setting is very well used to this degree of weirdness and already treats anything resembling magic like nitroglyceryn. It also basically fulfills all of world war two's most ludicrous ideas.

Do Unown count as Legendaries? I remember them being basically omnipotent once you get at least two or three of every letter, and then it's just exponential in range and affect the more there are, rewriting reality as they see fit as long as they can make the words and sentences with themselves.

>> No.43839712

In our setting we do this thing where if my character in particular rolls a 1 whilst flipping something off something horrific and deadly happens. Started as a one off joke roll whilst I was flipping something off and it became "a thing". Since the campaign started my character has caused two avalanches that wiped out numerous towns and a sinkhole that swallowed our Hub tavern and surrounding village.
Chaos could invade, but all I'd need is that one perfect roll. Then BOOM! Emps in the house or something.

>> No.43839758

They are not legendary, no. Game wise they suck all kinds of dick and are only good for spelling 'boob' in your storage boxes. Fluff wise they are pretty fucking strong though, I'm not sure how strong but I don't think they are as powerful as you described.

>> No.43839823

>Set in Endless Space
Good question, actually. Horatio would definitely fall to Slaanesh, and all his clones would follow suit. The Galactic Empire would likely also have a majority of its people fall to some god. Hissho are 100% Khornate worshippers, and the Cravers may fall to one god or another. The rest of the factions are okay, except perhaps some of the Siphons.
Really, how well they do is all dependant on if the Cravers fall or not as well as how much of a scientific development the Harmony and Vaulters have. If Cravers fall, the entire galaxy is stomped flat as Chaos has the three strongest militaries in the galaxy under its control.

>> No.43839828


Nah, he's right, Unown basically overlay reality with their own dimension where they get low-level omnipotence once they amass enough numbers.

Hell, they aren't even Unique when it comes to hilariously broken powerful when they Swarm, Beldums, Magnemites, and Klinks can do some pretty broken things if they feel like it. Though through psychic/technology, Eletrokinesis/Technology, or just Technology instead of reality hacks.

Vulcans deep down are emotional, they're just good at covering it up and keeping it down to focus on logic. And other species have been able to fuck with a Vulcan's mind and make them feel shit they shouldn't be able to. Like Spock crying in ToS, making Spock and Kirk fight, etc. So, a chaos god would easily be able to slip past those mental defenses.

First of all, by 'setting' you mean the totality of the civilized populations, or if anything in the setting could stand against the threat?

Also, Fantasy or 40k?

One of the most powerful and well-armed nations in the setting is much like WHFB's Empire, just without guns, magic, gryphons and all the crazy stuff. So, let's say the civilized races would be a bit more fucked than they are in WHFB.

On the other hand, the eldritch abominations that threaten this world are far above Greater Demon tier and many of their servants could stand against Archaon himself, so ... not as fucked I'd say.

Well fuck.

>> No.43841706

>unknown armies

Um probably not? Magic isn't absurdly powerful without burning yourself to do so, and it's modern day tech.

I mean I guess if the chaos minions were subject to the same rules as other adepts were in terms of spell casting, and the archetypes of humanity joined the fight, beating up the chaos gods from up in the stratosphere...

Still I think Chaos would probably win.

The setting as a whole? Probably, yeah. It's already thoroughly fucked, so all the surviving big guys are pretty strong and territorial. It might not defend itself, per se, but it'll survive.

Also it's got one guy trying to turn it into literal Hell on Earth, and another guy trying its best to turn it into the Far Realm. If chaos wants a piece of the pie it'll have to take a number and wait in the queue.

Shit gets weird when you have all the Elder Evils arrive at the same time and use that as the backstory.

Through the Breach/Malifaux. Essentially, the settinghas several Leaders with a similar power level to Abaddon, large numbers of necromancers who specialise in taking control of the undead from others, so Nurgle is going to loose alot of cannon fodder, or people who specialise in killing these people.

Probably. I my setting the world was cut off from the realm of the divine for a long time. A party of PCs could probably go on a quest to re-create the veil and cut the realm off from the divine, and by extension the warp.

At that point it's just a matter of cleaning up. Assuming we're keeping tech levels equivalent, this means WHFantasy chaos forces. Depending on the size of the army, I could name two or three forces that might be up to the job.

A chaos god could (but 99.999999999999999999999% of the time wouldn't) directly fuck over a vulcan, or an entire planet. ST has plenty of stuff along the lines of 40k nonsense (shit that drives you insane if you see it, psykers that may require entire worlds to be cordoned off or exterminatused, demonic possessing spirits, etc. etc.). In fact TOS became a pleasure to watch after I got interested in 40k.

>> No.43859144

The powerhouse factions would be largely unaffected, while many smaller societies are already prone to physical deformities. It could probably go unnoticed for a while, at least until larger cults started forming. The setting as a whole has lesser numbers than 40k (or even modern day earth) so the chaos powers would be considerably weaker as well.

It would be 'ok' for the most part, unless chaos can affect cthulhu-esque otherworlders, in which case everything would go to hell extremely fast.

>> No.43859201

I'd just assume they're as Chaos'd as they're going to get already and so it wouldn't do anything special to them.
