    Avoiding death at all costs, I don’t want to come back as some fucked up warp spawn.

    I had this idea come up with a conversation with my brother. I personally would serve either Tzeentch or Khorne, possibly Nurgle. I would try to become a daemon prince by sacrificing those who defy my god. I have no idea what my goals would be.

  4. Matapiojo December 4, 2012 at 8:35 am -      #4

    Tzeentch!
    .
    Though I would be the most bloodthirsty Tzeentchian Sorcerer in the galaxy. There is much power in blood…

    Kyass Urdrvdd if possible.
    -
    But like Sg said, unless Ye Godz present me with an Uber new body, I probably wont live long enough to get anywhere near Daemonhood.
    -
    Maybe I’d set my ultimate goal as one day infiltrating the Imperial Palace and drawing a Moustache and stick googly eyes on the Emprah’s face.

  7. Lightning December 4, 2012 at 8:56 am -      #7

    Khorne

    Goal? Punch a Daemon Prince in the face. Fuck the consequences.

    “Who would you serve?”

    Nurgle, ofcourse!

    “Would you try to become a daemon prince?”

    You mean there’s any other reason to joining Chaos then becoming immortal?

    “What goals would you try to accomplish?”

    Besides bringing about the zombie apocalypse, courtesy of Papa Nurgle? Probably doing some plague-cultists farts all over those modern art museums.

    Grandfather Nurgle; while I used to be one of the generic Khorne guys (he’s your go to god for chaos newbies) I’ve grown to like the big bloated papa much more…
    -
    “Would you try to become a daemon prince?”
    -
    Considering the daemon princes of Nurgle I’ve seen in stories thus far they are nigh undefeatable by conventional means, so yes, I would very much seek dark ascension, as should all servants of the ruinous powers.

    I’d go Iron Warrior’s then. Chaos Undivided but I’d have as little to do with Daemons as possible. I’d spend a few decades fighting for turf and build a Fortress Base on Mendregard while slowly garnering favor with the Gods and allocating followers until I either make it to Warsmith or Prince.
    -
    This is of course making the grand assumption that I survive all of those years without cocking up something and getting mutated. After that I guess my grand plan would be to lead my warband in an invasion against Hogwarts.

    Do you get Daemon Princesses? I’d attain the highest rank I could.

    “What goals would you try to accomplish?”
    What any good agent of Chaos would. Vie for Universal Domination! Find a way to attain Godhood myself.

    The one with the green symbol cause green is my favorite.

    No princes are sissies.

    “What goals would you try to accomplish?”

    Become an overpowered Warhammer guy.

  36. Marcel December 4, 2012 at 1:59 pm -      #36

    I would go with a God that can grant me an incorruptible state of being. That way, I would not only be eternal, but I would get to do whatever I wanted!

  37. Crimson Sentry December 4, 2012 at 2:07 pm -      #37

    Who would you serve?
    Tzeetch
    Reason: If I were a Tzeetchian sorcerer, I could use magic, minimal mutations (for some reason Tzeetch sorcerers don’t get as many mutations as their none psyker counterparts a.k.a. all the sorcerers in the Thousand Sons). Plus then I don’t get Chaos herpes from Slaanesh, no bloated disfigurement from Nurgle, and no mindless blood letting from Khorne, it’d be….Just as planned
    -
    Would you try to become a daemon prince? and What goals would you try to accomplish?
    Damn straight I would, although to do this I would be biding my time being very careful and slowly gaining power and influence over time and never reveal myself until I for sure could take over a world, and I would only do this near the eye or another major warp anomaly so I could make a quick escape.

    @Marcel
    Well…that’s difficult. They manipulate their followers to accomplish their greater plans (ESPECIALLY Tzeentch). I would stick with Tzeentch because if I’m gonna be manipulated, I at least want the illusion of freedom :/

  39. Crimson Sentry December 4, 2012 at 2:10 pm -      #39

    BTW you realize the Emperor (Starchild) is essentially a chaos god now. You could serve him and become a Saint.

  40. The One Above All December 4, 2012 at 2:11 pm -      #40

  41. Crimson Sentry December 4, 2012 at 2:13 pm -      #41

    FUN FACT OF THE DAY:
    All of the Greater Daemons of Tzeetch have some type of foresight, but the reason why they occasionally fail and or die is because Tzeetch will give them an incorrect vision of the future to further his plans.

  42. Praetor Prefect (I Wear a Fez Now. Fezzes are Cool) December 4, 2012 at 2:13 pm -      #42

    @CS
    I Well they don’t get corrupted cause they have no bodies really. I would still prefer to be part of the Thousand Sons than say…the Death Guard. I figure as a sorcerer, I could earn some favor by battling Nurgle’s forces (with resistance to his corruption & diseases). Would be pretty epic.

  43. Marcel December 4, 2012 at 2:13 pm -      #43

    “because if I’m gonna be manipulated, I at least want the illusion of freedom :/”
    -
    Man, I wouldn’t want to roll with that, lol. I would want the REAL deal. No manipulation, just straight-up freedom from a God who is not scared to grant that to somebody for fear of not having control. Ah, well, I prolly won’t find it here…

  44. Crimson Sentry December 4, 2012 at 2:16 pm -      #44

    @Marcel
    As I said, go with the Starchild its a safe bet. Although being a daemon prince of the Emperor is shit tons rarer then any of the other chaos gods.

    Demon prince of teh Emprah? Heresy! (do such things even exist?)

  46. TrashMan December 4, 2012 at 2:26 pm -      #46

    If I HAD to chose:
    Slaneesh.
    Prince of pleasure and debautchery.

    Khorne would have me fight for eternity. Nurgle would “bless” me with horrible mutations and deseases.
    Tzeench would use me to practice his dickery.

    Also, no to becoming a demon prince.

    But my soul belongs to the God-Emprah!

    @Praetor
    Have you ever heard of sisters of battle or other people of the imperium suddenly gaining a golden aura with wings and an epic rape sword? These are people imbued with the power of the starchild (emperor). Look up 40K Saints on google.

  50. Crimson Sentry December 4, 2012 at 2:32 pm -      #50

    These are known as living saints, the difference between living and normal saints is that. Normal saints are given sainthood after dying (generally) but don’t have any powers. Living saitns are people who have been imbued with “special powers”

    He’s as much a Chaos God as Cegorach. Whom given the choice would definitely be who I’d want to serve.

    Pffft living saints can’t go toe2toe with the chaos deamon princes. Primarchs were the empras true deamon princes!

  54. Crimson Sentry December 4, 2012 at 3:00 pm -      #54

    @zom
    i dunno man Cegorach is a super troll, but to be fair you could get access to the black library and become a solitaire…..

  55. TheSorrow December 4, 2012 at 3:01 pm -      #55

    Who would you serve?
    -
    Tzeentch easily. Magic, shape shifting, and trickery. Right down my alley.
    -
    Would you try to become a daemon prince?
    -
    Of course, a true follower of Tzeentch most be ambitious, ever-evolving, and clever!
    -
    What goals would you try to accomplish?
    -
    To be the most deceptive and powerful magician.

    It would have to be on a much smaller scale because Halo has an overwhelming advantage with space faring technology.

    All of us will unflinchingly place ourselves between you and the war’s desolation. We are the greatest humans ever born – we are the flame of Humanity where the rest of the galaxy is just the spark. In centuries of warfare, against the vileness of the alien, the lies of the heretic, the foulness of the mutant, I have never known fear – but your silence terrifies me.

    Well, in a ground battle, Metal Gear wrecks Halo. Full scale war though, MGS doesn’t have Space Travel.

  66. The One Above All December 4, 2012 at 3:31 pm -      #66

    Halo Vs MSG would go like this
    MGS has better weapons then Halo<Orbital Bombardment.
    MGS has better land vehicles then Halo<Orbital Bombardment.
    Solid Snake is a bigger badass then Master Chief<Orbital Bombardment.

    “You gonna fight to earn that title in your real world state?”
    -
    Fighting is the way of Khorne, and it is far from being the only path to ascension.
    -
    Besides, unlike the other 3 chaos gods, Nurgle grants eternal life to all of his followers. All of his “children” have a place waiting for them in his garden (Plaguebearers are the only lesser daemon of the 4 primary variants that is not simply created by a god cutting off a fraction of his own power; all plaguebearers were once mortal creatures).
    -
    Whereas your decision, Tzeentch, casts aside all of his pawns at one point or another when it suits him best, for example, even his most exulted and trusted of servants, Kairos Fateweaver fears Tzeentch will cast him aside, what are you to Tzeentch compared to the daemon who knows the absolute future that Tzeentch himself does not?
    -
    No, eons after your soul has been burned to nothingness or consumed by the predators of the Warp (or if you are lucky you will end up as one of the ill-begotten Furies), even if I have not reached the status of Princehood, I shall be residing at my eternal position at the side of my Papa.

    “No love for Malice?”
    -
    No.
    -
    He is a traitor to traitors, who can trust such a being?
    -
    That and he is exponentially weaker than the Great Gods; he’s nothing more than one of the insignificant 4 prominent lesser gods (which admitedly is saying something, the uncountable other number of gods that are born don’t tend to last long, being foremost amongst the weakling is at least an accomplishment; although to quote the crappy movie Waiting: “Its like being the smartest kid with down syndrome.”)

    That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to stay in one form. Especially when are dealing with Tzeentch. I would infinitely prefer that over Nurgle’s rotting and decaying forms.

    Weak now, yes, but if the forces of Chaos ever prevail, Malice has potential to become the strongest Chaos Gods. Not to mention, his followers get to kill ANYONE! They can go one day from killing Eldar to please their god, the next they’ll be killing Tau, the day after they’ll be fighting the forces of Chaos. They get to fight anyone!

    as a psyker of Tzeetch, they tend to get psychic boons as opposed to to physical boons, as seen by the thousand sons sorcerers.

    Khorne is the patron god of War and Blood, if an assassin goes on a killing spree and kills thousands with poison secretly he would actually be benefiting Nurgle as the overall lord of death doesn’t care how something dies as long as it does.
    -
    The ironic thing with Malice is that his power increases with the wax and wane of Chaos so if chaos is stronger he gets stronger and so on, even though he exists to kill chaos.

    I guess an analogy is in order. Khorne is more like the Major from Hellsing (He loves war and bloodshed)
    Malice is like The Joker (He just wants to see the world burn)

    “That doesn’t necessarily mean you have to stay in one form.”
    -
    Unless you have already ascended to daemonhood, you have no say in the matter. If Tzeentch (or any of his daemons for the matter) decides to grant you a “gift” then that’s the finality of the situation; the only thing you can do in that situation is make a deal with a daemon to change your mutation, which will inevitably cost you far more than simply accepting what has been granted unto you.
    -
    Any changes to your form to remedy this are likely to be even more unfavorable than what you originally had.
    -
    To walk the path of the Architect of Fate one must simply accept change in all its forms, to go against that is to betray Tzeentch.
    -
    Also as far as I am aware none of the Factpilers have a deep or even basic understanding of Warp-based sorcery; the best any of us could accomplish in such a field (without being lucky to have found a true tutor that is) is what the majority of all the other insignificant mislead cultists in the Imperium: nothing (or alternatively something far more sinister than the desired effects).
    -
    @Cookie
    “Weak now, yes, but if the forces of Chaos ever prevail, Malice has potential to become the strongest Chaos Gods.”
    -
    Tzeentch shall eternally be the most powerful of the Chaos Gods, that is undeniable fact; all of Chaos, even that falling under the jurisdiction of the other gods is in the end Change.
    -
    That and GW does not even officially recognise him as a God of Chaos (the name Malal is even more meaningless than Malice in this regard), let alone one of the Great Gods.
    -
    Simply put, you saying that is no different than your generic “Blood For the Blood God!” lunatic.
    -
    “Not to mention, his followers get to kill ANYONE! They can go one day from killing Eldar to please their god, the next they’ll be killing Tau, the day after they’ll be fighting the forces of Chaos. They get to fight anyone!”
    -
    So Khorne doesn’t exist in this picture? You literally just described his followers to the letter (and unlike the followers of Malice (of which we can only officialy name a lone Space Marine Chapter), this is literally the Khornates’ prime objective, fighting anyone and anything is how they directly praise their god. (Not to mention that anyone that causes conflict, violence, etc… even in the name of another god still counts as fueling the power of Khorne, even if they abhore him.)
    -
    Along with that, killing Eldar actually serves Slaanesh more than any other god, he personally devours their souls whenever they die.
    -
    Malice is nothing more than a wannabe and that’s all he shall ever be.
    -
    @Praetor
    “Can’t bear Body Horror, couldn’t serve Papa Nurgle EVER.”
    -
    Then I hope you enjoy oblivion (and I don’t mean the game.)
    -
    Even as a space marine you’re chances of becoming a Prince are slim to none.
    -
    -
    Only through Nurgle can one attain eternal life.
    -
    (Even Daemon Princes can be “killed”, the servants of Nurgle shall never understand such a concept as oblivion, let alone succumb to it. Nurgle protects his family; the others have no family.)

    “as a psyker of Tzeetch”
    -
    Who says you will be a psyker?
    -
    “they tend to get psychic boons as opposed to to physical boons”
    -
    Not true in the slightest, your example of the Thousand Sons is so far from correct that it is indeed very funny, and I shall explain below.
    -
    “as seen by the thousand sons sorcerers.”
    -
    The Thousand Sons do not have mutations for a very specific reason: The Rubric of Ahriman.
    -
    In the early days of the Great Crusade and even after the Horus Heresy, the Thousand Sons had been mercilesly plagued by the genetic defect within them that they refer to as the “Flesh Change”; they’re psychic powers turned on them and warped and twisted the afflicted into unrecognisable abominations no longer even capable of thought. Their Primarch, Magnus, was not able to solve this problem with any amount of sorcery (it was a curse inflicted by Tzeentch himself), Magnus was only ever capable of postponing the inevitable fate of his sons through daemonic pacts.
    -
    Ahriman succeeded where his gene-sire had failed. With his studies of dark knowledge, he and a coven of the other most powerful Thousand Sons enacted the Rubric, to once and for all cure the Thousand Sons of the Flesh Change.
    -
    It succeeded, but at dire cost. It had the desired effect upon all of the most powerful psychic members of the Legion, rendering them immune to the effects of mutation. The rest of the Legion was not so fortunate. The marines were turned to nothing more than dust within their armour, having become one with the suits they once wore for protection. These “Rubric Marines” are little more than unthinking atomatons, slaves to the will of their more powerful brethren.
    -
    -
    And that, is why your example is flawed.
    -
    -
    @Cookie (again)
    “I guess an analogy is in order. Khorne is more like the Major from Hellsing (He loves war and bloodshed)
    Malice is like The Joker (He just wants to see the world burn)”
    -
    That’s an awful analogy. Khorne too wishes to see the universe burn, in fact, ALL of Chaos wants to see that happen.
    -
    Malice is nothing compared to the Great Gods, this is displayed alone by the fact that he can exist in the Materium: the Great Gods are so powerful that they cannot; there is no source of power great enough to sustain them in that realm; Malice on the other hand was summoned with something like what… 10 sacrifices or something like that?
    -
    He’s so far below them its not even funny.

    -
    Not true. It would benefit both Khorne and Nurgle, all death does.
    -
    Any act of murder falls under Khorne to begin with, death belongs to Nurgle.
    -
    -
    The “jurisdictions” of the Dark Gods often times overlap.

    @assassin
    good call assassin, for some reason I was thinking that the psykers were never affected even before the rubric of Ahriman, but that of course is false. I guess I’ll have to go talk to ahriman after I people a powerful enough sorcerer :P. And yes I realize me being a sorcerer is a what if, but this is all speculation lol.

  92. TheSorrow December 4, 2012 at 4:34 pm -      #92

    I’ll take my chances all the same with Tzeentch. Something about rotting for eternity, being mindless psychotic who can only kill, or being a lust-driven-god-knows-what doesn’t appeal to me in any way.

    @Ruliya
    “So even if I was to raze the Galaxy in Khorne’s name I wouldn’t attain immortality to be by my Gods side?”
    -
    All daemons of Khorne eventually “die off”, daemons can be “killed” permanently (their god can either destroy them and reabsorb their power, they can be destroyed by another god or equally powerful being (such as the Emperor) or alternatively the god can simply refuse them their continued existance upon their next “Death”), in a sense, this is most common amongst the servants of Khorne, it is simply a side-effect of their chosen way of life. Even the greatest and most powerful of his daemons eventually fall from grace and are of little more value to him than the hordes of meaningless Bloodletters; granted daemons being killed off once and for all isn’t the most common of events, though it does happen to all eventually.
    -
    The only difference is those of Nurgle; Nurgle will preserve them all no matter what; Khorne in particular however disgusts the failings of his servants, for one of his own to be bested in combat is nothing but the greatest shame and dishonor in Khorne’s eyes, for all intents and purposes he hates them after that. He will then reabsorb them, eventually, (this can apply to Princes as well mind you) and use their power to create a new daemon, hopefully this time one that won’t end as a pitiful failure. Simply put, the next time they are defeated after losing Khorne’s favor they shall simply cease to exist (there are special cases such as Skarbrand, but those are indeed special; in Skarbrand’s case, he had the guts and insane bravado to attack Khorne himself, while Khorne cannot possibly forgive him for it there is certainly a degree of pride to be taken in Skarbrand’s actions from Khorne’s point of view, what greater act of martial prowess could there be than to challenge the god of combat himself?)
    -
    So to answer your question; yes, it is likely that you would be granted Daemonhood (note however that not all succesful champions of Khorne are ascended to this status, Kharn for example is more deserving than any; however this is likely due to the fact that by not being a daemon, fighting is more challenging and he can prove himself to be even more superior to his opponents by not having the advantages that come along with being a daemon. This however is not Kharn’s decision, it is Khorne’s in the end.)
    -
    -
    Nurgle is the only one of the 4 that is portrayed as the loving fatherly type, though his servants might fail him, unlike Khorne he won’t cast them into oblivion for it, and unlike the other 3 he takes particular interest in the accomplishments of all of his children, even the most insignificant nurglings. He’s the nurturing patriarch when it comes to daemons.
    -
    @Sorrow
    Best of luck to you then.
    -
    @Crimson
    “Or we could all be douchebags and be like Abaddon and get all the gifts of chaos without any of the downsides ”
    -
    And yet look at the fate of his predecessor, apparently neither of them are worthy of immortality in the eyes of the Dark Gods.
    -
    Which of the four will vouch for him when he is inevitably struck down? I’d be willing to say not even Nurgle would; they each only truly accept those that identify as their own; so who then would claim the lifeless corpse of Abbaddon? Would it not simply be wiser to replace him upon his death with Lorgar, the true favored of Chaos Undivided?

    @Assassin
    The reason why Horus was not Resurrection was because the emperor purged chaos from him, and his essence as well. also you must be a daemon or achieve daemonhood to be returned to the warp and reformed.
    -
    on another note, there has never been a recorded moment in canon where a god has reabsorbed a daemon they have created it was just merely stated that they could in the canon. Also only extremely potent psykers can actually outright destroy daemons, and there has not been a case where a greater daemon of chaos was outright destroyed essence and all.

    Sooo, as long as I am never defeated in battle, or killed, I should remain a Champion (Daemon Princess maybe) and live eternally, slaying all in my path in Khornes name.
    __
    Or are you saying there is an inevitability that *all* Champions will eventually be slain? Do you age once you attain daemonhood?

    I think I’m going to stick with Khorne ^^

  100. Crimson Sentry December 4, 2012 at 5:18 pm -      #100

    I would hate to be in the same battle if Kharn and Skarbrand were there. They would kill everything with such impunity its would be ridiculous.
