Meet the Cult

Friday, July 14th, 2017

This blog rises from the dead! Welcome to the first real new post, a weekly section where you’ll be able to get a glimpse into the personal lives and histories of the cultists in my Emperor’s Children army. Each Friday a new cultist will be featured.

Seanan Mac Phaidin

Rheatrivix and Khaslillie have created a fearsome host of Daemons and Chaos Space Marines. Their concerts, parties, raids and crusades are Legendary and have drawn many in, seduced by the allure of Slaanesh and a desire for pleasure and power. Perhaps least amongst the aspirants are the cultists. Yet each of them has a story to tell, and so over the next months these pitiful yet devout conscripts’ tales will be told.

We’ll start with Seanan Mac Phaidin, 1st Champion of Slaanesh. Seanan has been taking powdered silver as health supplement for decades, and in fact many others in the cult have taken up the practice, despite (or in some cases because of) the skin discoloration that results. Seanan claims it’s also lead to increased sensation, and resistance to las-fire.

Seanan joined Khaslillie and Rheatrivix’s Awesome Fucking Band soon after Khaslillie first brought Rheatrivix out of the Eye of Terror. His skill at recruiting new members into the cult largely stems from his enthusiasm, but is dampened slightly by his hideous mouth. His lower face was disfigured during a run in with some xenos that nearly wiped out his squad. Recently he’s acquired a demon mask, which he now wears constantly to hide his disfigurement.

 

Once More, with feeling

State of the Blog

So it’s time to resurrect the blog, starting tomorrow (Friday) I’m going to try and get back into the 5 posts a week rhythm. I’m going to change the format up a little however as it’s been four years!

Mondays will remain Let’s Play… I’m thinking X-Com 2, but I’m open to suggestions, and I’ll need at least a week to actually figure out what I’m doing if it’s not going to be a very short campaign.

Board Game reviews will remain on Tuesdays… though I might focus more on my favorite games, with occasional worst or new games as an infrequent occurrence as opposed to my previous “whatever was on the table” approach.

Media Reviews will probably go away, or possibly be used as filler when I’m behind on a regular feature. Instead Wednesdays are going to be a hobby focus. I’ve been gluing metal and plastic together for  more than a decade and know a thing about a thing.

Thursdays will remain “Rant” day where I talk about whatever.

Fridays are going to be a new feature “Meet the Cult” where I take a day each week to focus on one of the many otherwise unremarkables who have devoted themselves to my Warhammer 40k cult of Slaanesh. Usually you hear about the backstory of the movers and shakers, which often becomes a bit of Mary-Sueism. So of the conversions I’ve done have been quite fun and I already have bits of story about these guys in my head so I’m going to flesh it out. You might learn a little bit about the big name characters in my 40k/AoS Slaanesh army by extension, but that won’t be the focus.

Choose Your Own Post unless there is popular demand, CYOP is going on indefinite hiatus. Once I get my writing chops back I may work on it as a separate project or something.

 

Well that was an exciting 4 year Hiatus

A lot happened (details available upon request), but I think it’s time to revive this old thing. There may be some format changes. We shall see.
