It's not going to happen. We had an Ork thread on here a day ago and one Anon or two brought a couple of points. >>39898171
Now what's this all about that the Eldar Gods > Chaos Gods? And that Anon is right. Do people actually think the other Gods won't intervene to keep Slaany alive?

The Emperor will still probably be alive because he's the Emperor, and I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to bring back some followers while he goes to fight the Gods. Maybe that would be great for a vidya game. $70, and who would Big E bring back? I'm thinking Cypher, Logan, Dante, and Draigo.

>> No.39954298

Wait, who the hell thinks that Eldar Gods are stronger than Chaos Gods?

As far as I remember, Slaanesh single-handedly wiped out almost the whole Eldar Pantheon upon birth, Nurgle took Isha as her personal sex slave, and Khorne piledrived Khaine across the heavens until it shattered in a billion pieces.

>> No.39954373

I recently read somewhere that even though the other three gods could stomp Slaanesh, they don't because (s)he would enjoy it. They're also worried that Slaanesh's domain of excess technically embodies all of them (excessive murder, excessive hope, etc) so if any of the big three fall they get added to Slaanesh, so they don't take each other out either.

>> No.39954743

The Eldar gods were weakened by their lack of worship by the majority of the Eldar, except maybe Khaine who was at the very least respected by the Eldar (the Dark Eldar to this day respect him). And Slaanesh was on a birth-high, and got into a tug-of-war with Khorne over Khaine, and it either tore Khaine into fragments, or he went "FGSFDS" burst into the Materium, shattered, and settled in the Craftworlds.

>> No.39955602

This is fine by the big 3, they all hate slaanesh or find heshe unnerving, plus then Eldar get respawns and Eldar are like 100x tastier than humans and slaanesh has been keeping them all to itself

>> No.39955660

Slaanesh was on par with Khorne upon birth, gorged on billions of fresh Eldar souls, so he tore through the Eldar pantheon and Khaine put up a supposedly decent fight against Slaany buying time for Cegorah to escape (some hints suggest nurgle helped with this while he was stealing isha, sweet in a sorta abusive husband way)
Khorne was infuriated with Slaanesh for confronting Khaine as he believed Khaine was rightfully his, so they had a tug of war over him, different fluff says different things but some say they ripped him apart into fragments, others say that khaine refused to allow of them to take him so he jumped into the materium and blew up into avatars

Don't the other gods hate Slaany? Pic related says they have a bad feeling he's the rising star of the family and Khorne and Nurgle in particular have a great dislike for him. Only one I could see doing something is Tzeentch, but he might get out used by Cegorach.

Also, remember the last time one of the Gods tried to interfere with a newborns feeding frenzy. Slaanesh told Khorne to go fuck himself. If Ynead is strong enough to kill Slaaners then Khorne will get his shit pushed in.

>> No.39957558

It's stated as a love-hate thing. All the Gods despise Slaanesh bastardization and theft of their own domains to give himself power, but at the same time desperately seek his attention and pleasure. This is shown most popularly with Khorne constantly shattering and reforging the goblet that he received from Slaanesh.

>> No.39957640

But Ynnead is just a legend, one that is supposedly going to be powered by all the dead of the smallest faction, population wise, in the game, and yet somehow defeat Slaanesh, a God who has feasted on the bulk of the center of the Eldar Empire as well as 90% of their pantheon of Gods.

Every time someone brings Ynnead up I just keep imagining some Scythe bearing Eldar Jebus walking up and getting his shit slapped, getting eaten, and then that giving Slaanesh the power to bust through the gates of Khaine and eat Commoragh.

>they all hate Slaanesh

Elf-spewed propaganda. The Chaos gods, when they're not actively playing against each other, seek the aid of the other gods in their own demonic incursion if something is messing with them.

Like when Nurgle asked all three gods to help him test out a new plague, and only Khorne would help him at the started. Slaanesh later wanted in, Nurgle figured "the more the merrier", and Khorne saw it as Nurgle saying "You're not good enough to help me alone", so he washed away both his brothers armies with a huge tide of blood. Meanwhile Tzeentch had himself a little giggle, because just as planned, etc.

The other 3 gods see Slaanesh, as well as each other, as frienemies. None of the 4 will sit idly by and let another one die, as it means one less player (or pawn) for the game.

In the previous example, by outright denying Nurgle assistance alongside Slaanesh, events conspired to see Slaanesh be the dividing force, but not because the other 3 gods "apparently hate him" but because it was just as planned.

Nurgle didn't get to test his plague.
Slaanesh didn't get to participate much at all.
Khorne didn't get skulls and praise because he did the chaos god equivalent of flipping the board over.

None of the other 3 will sit idly by and let some not-god from an upstart race mess with their favourite pasttime.

The entire point is to have your own games decide how it ends. Look at what happened to Fantasy. Is that really what you want? To lose the setting entirely? There is no way to satisfy everybody by ending the setting and it robs you any capacity to tell stories.

Thraka is trying to summon Gork and Mork, Tau are doing something that Tau do in their spare time, Vect is trying to kill his ex because she's ruining his measures to keep Mortartion and Fulgrim out of the Dark City, and the Ad Mech is trying to find a mother load level STC. That's some progression.

>> No.39958609

>despises slaanesh

>other two fear him as potential threat

Khorne has worked alongside Slaanesh countless times, in wars that have helped and hindered the both of them. If Khorne really was so impatient for Slaanesh's demise, surely every battle they every fought alongside each other would have resulted in some sort of "we killed the common enemy, now I'll kill you". Buuut it hasn't.

Tzeentch has proved numerous times that he is capable of manipulating his brothers into doing pretty much what he wants. If Slaanesh is going to get into a position to nom on his brothers, I'm sure Tzeentch would have a batman-style contingency plan to halt the process before it can happen.

Nurgle has no current issues with Slaanesh. The Isha story happened at the fall, when Slaanesh was done fighting Khorne for Khaine, Isha cried out for help when Slaanesh came for her, and Nurgle answered, fighting his newest peer. Nurgle won, Isha's his and since then (the fall) he and Slaanesh have also worked alongside one another, with no mentioned attempts at further warring for Isha.

Chaos is solid.

That's why I asked, pal. The Chaos gods have always been cited as not liking the others methods, because the four are each made of different emotions.

A story about the Chaos gods from 26 years ago, for instance, seems like a very thin straw for people to clutch at with the whole NUH UH RHANA DANDRA WILL HAPPEN EVERYONE HATES SLAANESH SEE THEY SAID SO IN THE FIRST BOOK EVER BEFORE THE ELDAR EXISTED WHEN THEY WERE JUST INTRODUCING THE CHAOS GODS

>> No.39958743

>Doesn't the lore state that Khorne is getting close to lose his temper and murdering Slaanesh.

That's Khorne's relationship with everyone. When actually in Slaanesh' presence it's pretty hard t keep your gusto for killing him going, what with his ability to turn into your idealized being. For Khorne I'd imagine she'd turn into some muscle girl with stylized skulls all over and a giant chainsword at his side.

It hasn't worked before, and Khorne is still stronger than Slaanesh. Tzeentch is actually worried about the fallout of Khorne's dream to kill Slaanesh would have.

I would also be interested to hear how old the chalice story is also

and if it was in fantasy or 40k

>> No.39959024

Which is sort of confusing. I don't see Khorne having an Immaterium wide ban on his soldiers being sloots, Bloodbrides are a thing after all, whatever they are, but psykers are absolutely out of the question. Then he somehow goes on to hate Slaanesh more then Tzeencth? I don't get it.

>> No.39959088

Slaanesh is hated more than Tzeentch because Khorne sees Slaanesh as degenerative scum which has something to do with them being them being so fundamentally opposed to each other.

>> No.39959174

Slaanesh isn't fundamentally opposed to anyone. That's the point. He's a mooch on the other God's domains. I think that's why Khorne hates Slaanesh so much more vocally, it's simple to tell why he hates the other two, but Slaanesh just has to much of an irking similarity to the exact same thing he does.

Tzeencth is hated for being a cowardly magioso just as much Slaanesh is hated for being a degenerate and Nurgle is for being a lard ass

>> No.39959177


He hates Slaanesh more than Tzeentch because Slaanesh is an arrogant, prissy, decadent motherfucker who mocks Khorne with his excessiveness.

Daemonettes beating bloodletters to a fight and desecrating the skulls with insults to Khorne before they get there.
Slaanesh cuts with elegance, speed and grace, not usually with the intent of killing, but more inflicting pain and causing sensations, rather than fighting for the sake of fighting.

The main reason I'd say he isn't a fan is because in a way, Slaanesh misrepresents Khornes love of war. Khorne demands bloodshed for the sake of it, but Slaanesh wants to get off on it.

Khorne doesn't want to enter Slaanesh's magical realm, but he won't stop asking. That's why he hates him more than he hates Tzeentch.

Also, the Blood Pact have Gore Mages (psykers powered by blood) and there's that Blood Raven Librarian who became a Daemon Prince of Khorne, if memory serves

>> No.39959237

One of us is wrong. Can someone clear this up? I thought that the Chaos Gods were fundamentally opposed to each other depending on the god.

>> No.39959351

No, lots of the God's domains overlap. War can be an arena of great technological progress in order to nuke the other side or it can be a slow slogging and constantly halting stagnant pit of disease. There are both simple and quick executions and long nights of torturing an enemy to learn his secrets. In that way Khorne's domain ends up being overlapped by all his brothers.

That's why in 40k where there is only war, Khorne is the storngest because his domain is directly on top of that, but all the other Gods still get their 2 cents during every battle for being associated with many other goings on.

>> No.39959476

Okay, but I still stand by that
>what with his ability to turn into your idealized being. For Khorne I'd imagine she'd turn into some muscle girl with stylized skulls all over and a giant chainsword at his side.
Wrong. The Laughing God fights Slaanesh over the souls of those murder clowns that get their souls eaten by Slaanesh unless their god saves them. Nothing has happened to him.

The entire Eldar prophecy doesn't work because Chaos Gods CAN'T die. Unlike other Warp Gods, Chaos exists on a conceptual level, and they completely ignore causality. The Eldar can't kill Slaanesh because Slaanesh is impossible to kill- it both simultaneously does not exist and does at the same time- a Schrodinger state.

And to top it all, Chaos is capable of time travel, and fun fact- those Chaos God "birthdays" are full of shit. The creature that started the hedonism cults that "created" Slaanesh in the first place was a Keeper of Secrets in disguise. She Who Thirsts has always existed yet never existed at all.

I didn't mention the gods dislike for each other because it's so established in the fluff it's common knowledge. I also mentioned how they are formed from contrasting emotions, hence their dislike for each other.

They do fight each other, but with daemons, because they're disposable. When they put Tzeentch down, they did it, not their servants. But they didn't kill him. Nurgle didn't, even though he HAAAAAAAATES him and had the perfect chance.

Age has a bearing on canon because this is a fictional setting, and things change. The Chaos gods have grown as characters, because they are alive.

I don't think you understand what I was asking for citations for.

The Hatred: Rival Daemons and Warp Storm zapping rival daemons, if that's what you're referring too, is more evidence that proves me right.

The minions of the gods carry out the personal vendettas of their masters, (ex: Daemonettes that reached a fight before some Bloodletters desecrated the skulls of the slain with insults to Khorne).

The Warp storm is the gods throwing shit at the enemy army and the rival servants of the god in question. It's not like Khorne throws a thunderbolt at Tzeentch. Khorne knocks over his pawns so Tzeentch can't have as much fun at the time.


>> No.39967324

You're trying to point out that they hate and oppose each other, and fuck with each other's plans, and in the case of Khorne is the personification of violence and murder, but they wouldn't actually hurt each other.
Because there are no examples of them as the Gods, trying to directly kill each other.

While at the same time claiming that they aren't simple beings capable of birth and death, but eternal concepts. But asking for examples of them acting as discrete beings with lives and thoughts like mortal beings.

What were you asking for then? The initial claim was that no gods hate or fear Slaanesh (>>39958167). This was quickly proven false with evidence. Then an anon, presumably you, gave pure unsubstantiated speculation about how they all love each other (>>39958609) and tried to argue that age effected canonicity despite that being wrong by definition. Bringing retcons like Squats and Newrcons has nothing to do with age and everything to do with stuff being outright rewritten. Not only was it wrong, it was a moot point because it wasn't old fluff.

Oh and one last thing to appease people saying that the three chaos gods secretly fear becoming consumed by Slaanesh would either:

a) not interact with them in neutral / friendly situations (4chaosgods vs something else, tzeentch / nurgle actively answering a request to fight alongside him) - Chaos gods have done this before, see 5th edition rulebook, daemons section
b) have some some sort of backup plan for if bad times do go down (changling, isha being used as a peace offering, etc)
c) gods are arrogant, so the "Fear" they felt was probably a passing notion, or recurring "what if?" in their heads. And if this is the case, please refer to options a and b.

Rhana Dandra ain't happening.

I liked that theory and hoped the ebon blade would turn out to be Anaris, the 100th (and mightiest) of the swords that Vaul, the eldar smith-god, forged for Khaine in the war in heaven.

So either:
1) Anaris is still missing
2) Farsight has it
3) Tzeentch may have spirited it away from Khaine when Khorne and Slaanesh were ripping him in half, as Tzeentch, the wizard who doesn't fight, probably wouldn't want his brothers to get hold of such a thing. The blade may have turned black due to corruption.

No concrete evidence, but some nice speculation. Shame I couldn't confirm it as the ebon blade, Khorne wielding Khaines weapon as a great "equalizer" is pretty neat.

>> No.39974724

I'm thinking it's two and three. What does Farsight's sword looks like?

>> No.39974906


It's pretty big. I'm fine with Farsight having it, I prefer that than him finding some random Necron weapon, which is usually the common theory about his wep.

But since the weapon is named Dawnlight, and the fluff cites it as existing before the chaos gods did (such as the war in heaven), so what if being held by Tzeentch corrupted it (changed it) from a blade of light to a pitch-black sword.

But I'm fine with either

>> No.39975020

Who knows? Tzeentch painted it black maybe? To say that is like saying if there was a lore in both the Imperium and Chaos codices that the Emperor couldn't even fathom the idea of making deals with Chaos, BL wouldn't have did that idea that he bargained with the Chaos Gods to make his sons. That still doesn't make sense to me. How would a 38,000 year old godlike man who has seen the pinnacle of human science not know how to make 20 clone sons using the same uncorrupted Warp he's powered by?

>> No.39975179


I think Farsight having it makes the most sense, all the Tzeentch stuff is pure speculation. Plus Farsight is pretty fighty and aggressive ever for the Fire Caste, so him ending up wielding the sword of the god of murder seems pheasible.

I also prefer the idea that the emperor made the primarchs himself, and the Chaos Gods just scattered em. Makes Big E look kinda shit, plus it tears open all kinds of plot holes.

Could he be turned into a fusion of weeboo communist and an avatar of Khaine? Not the Avatar, but Kahine turning him into something like a Living Saint?

My Anon. Not to mention it makes the Chaos Gods look bad. That means they made their greatest enemy. They're chaotic, not flat out idiots.

>can he be turned into a thing

probably not, he fights with it with his battlesuit, and it's too big for him to realistically wield. Still suits him though

>> No.39975532

Well can the suit be infused then?

Ah hell. The most recent eldar dex has explained the disappearance of Anaris but it's not in the hands of a named character, or doing anything at all right now. Goddamnit Phil Kelly, Farsight or Khorne should have it.

The Shard of Anaris is an Eldar artifact. When Khaine slew Eldanesh, he took the sword of Anaris and claimed it as his own. However when Khaine was shattered in battle with Slaanesh, the sword was also splintered. The shards of the blade have come to rest on many Craftworlds, and legend tells that the shard of Anaris was then crafted into a blade to be borne by the craftworld's mightiest warriors.


>> No.39975673

Can Cruddance consume his biomass too? Maybe the biomass of Chambers and Kelly might do something to him. So there is now a sword that is like the Avatar of Khaine?

>> No.39975739


Jeez, it's not even that, it's one of the army relics you buy for a HQ. Don't know how many points it costs, but it sure has rending and instant death. No AP or S bonus as far as I'm aware.

And that's supposed to be the shattered fragment of the mightiest weapon that Vaul forged? It should be on par (or better than) weapons like Drach'nyen.

Phil wolfdamn Kelly. Can't write for shit.

>> No.39975855

>And that's supposed to be the shattered fragment of the mightiest weapon that Vaul forged?
Maybe Khorne shattered it with his sword when Khaine tried to fight back?
>It should be on par (or better than) weapons like Drach'nyen.
There's only one sword I know of that is like that, and I think it's the sister blade of Drach'nyen.
>Phil wolfdamn Kelly
Sounds like an actual Space Wolf.

>> No.39975938


I'm mainly complaining about the fact that it's the fragment of the Eldar-smith gods most powerful sword ever forged, and yet in game it is a
>close combat weapon
>Instant Death

It should be better than that imo

>> No.39976002

I don't play the game. Wouldn't instant death make sense?

>> No.39976278


It makes sense but if the weapon doesn't have an AP value (I don't own the book so I can't be sure) it's really hard to pull the instant death off. You can get lucky with a rend, but it shouldn't be rending. It should have a good AP, and maybe also rending

>> No.39976313

But if it's shattered does that mean it only landed in Eldar hands?

>> No.39976497


The fluff seems to imply that either the eldar got all the bits, or some of them and the others haven't cropped up yet.

But Kelly also refers to it as a shard and shards, so who really knows? Not even him, it would seem.

>> No.39976515

Maybe this explains Farsight's sword.

>> No.39976556


It could do, it would explain why it's got a tiny smidge of Tau aesthetic to it, especially in the hilt, the main bit you'd need to make, especially if all you found of the original weapon is a bit of the blade

>> No.39976599

Right. So that's one mystery solved.
