The maisma of the warp encircles you. It nonsensical madness everywhere. You cry out for some anchor of reason before you are lost to the insanity when all at once your feet touch ground. Startled you now find your self confronted with 4 doorways, each imposing and unique. One ringed with skulls that bleeds from every crevice. One lined with festering corpses still writing in pain encircled in flies. One that is made of runes that shift and change and crackle with unfathomable power. And lastly an archway of half divine marble stonework and half spiked corregated metal, a symbol of beauty and hideousness combined.


You must bow before one of these doorways or have your soul cast into the warp to endless torment. But who will you choose? And why?

So that is the question. And forgive me if this has been done before but i couldnt find a previous thread like it. So if you had the choice and no alternative which god of chaos will you bow to?

Nurgle is regrettably my choice. I get ill alot and my immune system isnt exactly top notch. I used to get the flu 2 or 3 times a year when i was younger and i had a cold all the way through primary school that i couldnt shake. His minions are immune to it all, well the debilitating side of it anyway. I think i'm going to have to side with the lord of decay. Plus better than average resilience is pretty cool too

I'm a complete aesthete, as Alex will attest :) He's a good mate. So slaanesh is naturally my choice.

I must have constant motion and change, or else I start to go bonkers. I am also a bit obsessed with obtaining more power, or at least all of my dreams are. So, I must undoubtedly go with Tzeentch. The Changer of Ways is undoubtedly my preference.

Personally I think the gods should be celebrated in unity as a perfect concentratration of power. [[Word Bearers, woo!]]

But otherwise The Prince of Excess is extremely awesome and original, certainly if I was'nt in such a complete fundamental agreement with the Word Bearers I'd have Noise Marines and Lucious The Eternal leading the way,

yay for sxxy topless daemons! :drinks:

Sometimes overcome with unchecked rage over the smallest of insults, often making violent threats ("I will stab you... in the face."), enjoying bloodsports...

Mark me down as bowing before the Blood God.

Of course, now that my Bi-Polar Disorder is being properly treated... I'd be more of an Undivided kinda guy, I guess.

I still get wierd now and again, after all.

I would remain in the warp till I regained enough power to return to my Raithlord tomb then I would Bring forth the 11th on your false xeno gods


Glory to the 11th!! :threaten:

For the Changer of Way, the Master of the Warp, and the Architect of Fate, all things are possible and victory over all rivals eventually assured. Tzeentch for me, all the way.

I've been wanting to have some sort of Nurgle army for years, but I just can't decide on what kind of army exactly.

Nurgle appeals to me for a variety of reasons. One is for the sheer gross-out factor of it. I never grew out of my Creepy Crawlers stage. Another is that Nurgle is such a delightful paradox; he's a god of slow death and misery, but he's such a jovial fellow at heart. He doesn't see his plagues as BAD things. Nurgle's Rot is just Grandaddy Nurgle hugging you from the inside. Finally, what I like about Nurgle is that he's not just a god of grossness. He was created from feelings of despair, and he appeals most to the desperately miserable. He thrives on apathy. A prayer offered to Nurgle is pretty much a declaration to the cosmos that you don't care if you're a bloated, maggot-ridden man-zombie. It's a small price to pay to make the pain of living go away. And Nurgle, being an oddly benevolent fellow, waves his finger and removes that horrible pain. He takes away ALL the pain and unhappiness in one's life, and doesn't bother to replace it with joy. He just leaves an empty space, and apathy fills the void. He strips you of all ambition, and leaves you so indifferent that you honestly don't care if you spend the remainder of your too-many years a piece of limp, festering meat. I find that interesting, and I also think it's interesting that Nurgle probably sees himself (if he sees himself at all) as a force of mercy in a cold and heartless universe. Isn't that charmingly twisted?

Frankly, a god that promises a total release from want and responsibility, even at Nurgle's awful toll, is mighty seductive. A telling comparison can be drawn between Nurgle and Slaanesh, as unusual as that might sound. They're both "fulfillment" gods, the kind that offer contentment to their followers. The main difference is actually just splitting hairs; Slaanesh promises to fulfill his followers' wants, while Nurgle offers to remove their wants entirely. The end result in both cases is contentment.

The forces of the Blood God are unstoppable. Those who stand in their way will be brutally destroyed. There will be no mercy. Followers of Khorn will be rewarded with a life of war and bloodshed unending!

No friggin way would I go Nurgle.

I's rather get sick and die like a normal person than get sick and *never8 die from it.
Seriously, have you ever seen a follower of Nurgle who wasn;t hideously deformed and covered in weeping sores? Sure, you won;t die, but would you rather live in hideous, oozing agony for eternity?

Fuck that.

Khorne...meh, I like Disturbed and Rob Zombie as much as the next guy, but I don;t think I;d want that to be the soundtrack to my life. Kill, maim, burn, I get it, I get it. Rampaging, mindless roid-rage would get very dull eventually.

Tzeentch is very tempting (assuming youl;re going sorc and not mindless automaton). I mean, who doesn't want incredible power and swank glowing eyes? But when you devote your life to arcane research, you;re basically just a nerd who can turn someone into a pulsating monstrosity with a thought.

Scary, but a nerd.

Slaanesh all the way.
Sure, I won't be asking for handjobs from Daemonettes, but damn, man...sex, drugs and rock-n-roll without consequence for as long as you can stand it. Tear me off a piece of that. Get a whole harem built up for your off time when you're not out killing people with your massive boner or wailing away on your electric guitar in the middle of a battlefield

Plus it lends itself to dabbling in the other persuits.
You can give yourself over to battle-lust and skullfuck your way across the battlefield
You can research new and exciting ways to get off or get high
And I'm sure you can cultivate an extensive stable of new and exciting STDs in your free time.

Slaanesh has it all

And that is precisely why I WOULD go Tzeentch. I'm a nerd, and all the other gods seem mindless to me - in their worship of decay, of blood and violence, and of (largely physical) pleasure. I love the intellectual. Being called a 'nerd' (which I've got pretty used to given my real life nerdiness) is a small price to pay for limitless knowledge and power.
