People are like dice, a certain Frenchman said that. You throw yourself in the direction of your own choosing. People are free because they can do that. Everyone's circumstances are different, but no matter how small the choice, at the very least, you can throw yourself. It's not chance or fate. It's the choice you made.

Well, on the weekend, my Daemon Prince was taken out 'from behind' by a 'penal' legion.

The only thing missing was the benny hill music.

Sorry for screwing up the discussion table thing. Whoops.

Anyway, if you could hear Morgan Freemans voice. "I thought it would take 600 years for a man to chisel through a deamons skull, It took Jim 20..."

Decrepit Dakkanaut






Omadon's Realm

In the Inquisitor books, Jaq Draco has a sexual relationship with his pet callidus assassin, Meh'Lindi. Their feelings do develop over time till they visit a certain chaos planet and things go quite wrong for her and she starts getting abit more insane than she was.

It's been shown in old fluff that halfeldar were possible (one was listed in the WD article on Ultramarine officers), I would imagine this has been entirelly ret-conned from new background. Especially given the disgust with which the eldar now hold for humans.

hmmmm, SOME eldar.
As eldar pathfinders/rangers are outcasts/exiles/adventurers they may have different opinions as they have to integrate themselves sometimes with rouge traders or other human colonies.

How about Sister and Guard? C'mon like in a whole galaxy it hasn't happened...
I doubt the average guard would be lucky enough though, porbably someone a bit little up the ranks.

What about a guard regiment adopting and orphan? (Not in a sus way before anyone says anything) Like Creed, except mabye they make the child the regimental mascot or lucky charm.

In the book Wolfblade, Ragnar has something suspiciously like a relationship with a Navigator of House Belisaurus.

And then the poo hits the fan.

I don't think GW's fiction writers (with rare exceptions) can manage something so nuanced as romance without it coming off as hamfisted or too vague to be classified as such.

It's tough work, especially so when we're dealing with Grimdark srs bznss.

(Sigh) I suppose you're right...

But, remember! This thread need not be constricted to the unimaginative state of some GW writers. Any possible scenarios that you can come up with are always welcome.

I think the black library editor(s) just say no to anything an 8-year-old cant understand. Luckily, they aint so smart themselves, thus we get some stuff sneaked past them.

I collect:
Guard - 2k of mostly infantry
DA - 2k of deathwing, 2k of other bits (no vehicles)
Sisters - mostly converted/proxy because I'm waiting for therange to go plastic.
Tau - 2k with no riptides because I can.

So an 8-year-old can understand why a SoB has undying devotion to a dead guy on a gian throne?

He understands that kind of stuff?

The Sororitas do not take vows of chastity, IIRC.

Actually there can be "all-life vows" and "temporal vows".

Just as in Military Orders of Templars or Hospitaliers there were "core members" and "guests" - those knight that come to fight for a period of time or a particular campaign.

More than that - I think that Sororitas have a good record of educating daughters of imperial nobility. Say, from 8to 25 years old.

They can even be trained as Battle Sisters in time of need.

Strong-willed, pure, educated, knowing her duty, loyal to the Imperium - a perfect way to bred wifes for Imperial high classes.

I don't think 'breeding wives' was high on the agenda. Neither do I think that being a sister of battle was a temporary thing. (Sister Hospitallier etc mabye).

SoB is all about self denial, fasting etc, so that would probably include chastity. IIRC though, there is no solid info that says they must take any such vows.

I may be imagining it, but I think this comes up in Swallow's "Faith and Fire" and the answer is no vow of chastity. But I'm not reading it again to find out, either. Like other matters in 40k fluff, there is no perfect correspondence between made up religion and real life religion. GW has simply mined a lot of stereotypes of Catholicism (not surprisingly, as most of which were invented by English Protestants) to provide for their grim darkness of the future.

hmmm, I've read faith and fire and I can't say I remember much. Especially chastity. I do remeber pretty much every male charachter frothing over the sisters though.

Oh! this also links to the 'Evil Sister' post. In the book, a psyker broke one of the sisters mind and she became a repentia (freaky) instead of bending to his power/will.

I think all he did was render her catatonic not try and subvert her to Chaos. All the same, Ecclesiarchy official wanted her executed. Cannoness was angry but not bloodthirsty about it. The sister in question felt so guilty about the whole thing that she donned the sackcloth.

Apparently violence fuels one's libido. You have to relieve that stress someday.
