[Excerpt: Tempest] Ahriman can and will seduce daemonettes

2021.10.15 23:17 Vezimira [Excerpt: Tempest] Ahriman can and will seduce daemonettes

Hi hello, I bring you some fun stuff on this Friday night. The Dawn of War omnibus gets meme'd on a lot from what I understand, and while I didn't find its contents particularly amazing, I considered it my duty to go through the one that features Ahriman as its antagonist. My digging has yielded some unexpected, dubious gems.

In truth, however, most of Ahriman's power came from the allies that he could enlist. Over the long centuries and millennia, the unmatched sorcerer had learnt the keys that unlocked many secrets: he could call upon the aid of daemons without exposing his soul to their thirst, binding them to his will and his purpose; he could seduce service from the lithe and terrible daemonettes, promising them pleasures that he would never have to fulfil; and he could speak the hidden words that stirred the warp itself, bringing the raw, depersonalised power of the empyrean into his service for short periods of time.
As for the rest of his appearances, he spends a whole lot of effort on being dramatic, extra and over-the-top, and also somehow better than Magnus.
Ahriman's eyes widened and burned. Flames of warpfire flickered and lapped from his eyelashes before streams of energy burst out of his eyes and mouth. The thickening, lashing tendrils of fiery power quested and thrashed like high voltage cables in a storm. They latched onto a shape in the unseen dimensions of the immaterium, grasping it and crackling around its form, digging roots into it like daemonic maggots into pallid flesh.
Silence fell, as though the desert wind itself were holding its breath. In his mind, Ahriman smiled: he knew that nothing was more glorious and suggestive of power than a dramatic, tension-riddled pause. He waited for a couple of seconds, and then completed his incantation.
But there came a day when Ahriman's knowledge challenged even that of Magnus, just as the power of Magnus had once rivalled even that of the False Emperor of Man: as prodigal sons are fated to overcome their fathers.
But Ahriman had always been a finer scholar than his primarch, and centuries of research had finally paid off. Since his expulsion from the Planet of the Sorcerers, Ahriman had taken his cabal on a rage of erudition, plundering ancient tombs, acquiring forbidden tomes, unearthing magical artefacts, and discovering the most talented of psykers. Even Magnus would not have thought it possible, but he had found Arcadia, and now he would find Karebennian too. After that, there was nothing that could keep him away from the Black Library, the impossibly ancient repository of the wisdom of the eldar.
The book also gives him blue ghost teeth, for whatever reason.
Without waiting to identify the mysterious assailants, Ahriman grinned, letting his mouth open to reveal burning blue teeth, like rows of warp shards. His eyes flared with the sudden thrill of combat. Taking his Black Staff by one end, he spun it around his head, letting a stream of crackling energy lash out into a circle around him.
'It is always good to ask questions, Obysis,' smiled Ahriman with menace glinting off his phantom teeth. 'Questions are the ground-spring of knowledge, after all. But it is usually unwise to question me. Do you question me, Obysis, sorcerer of Ahriman's cabal?'
And, uh, yeah. This part.
He knew that they could not see him - he was a phantom in the darkness, at one with the tempest of warp and space that roiled around him, just beyond visibility. He knew that the arrogant Space Marines would think the Phantom was little more than another chunk of space junk - they had neither the wit nor the intellect to understand or recognise his presence, let alone his scheme. Like the Emperor himself, all those millennia ago, his intellectually-stunted, retarded Marines knew nothing of the true power of the warp.
Atlas Infernal finally has a worthy challenger in terms of questionable content.

I did my best to make things concise and clear. I restrained myself from making personal observations or jokes as much as possible; I think there's only 3-4.
No, I don't have a PoB ready yet.

2021.10.15 23:17 Jamiefuckerdm Cool Magic item i made. Any advice?

Flask of Wild Prowess Aura: Faint Transmutation; CL: 3 Price: 5000gp; Weight: 1/2lbs
This dull hip flask looks plain and is usually covered in a thin veneer of dirt and vertigree. If scrubbed clean underneath is revealed scenes of 6 animals: a bear fishing, a fox hiding, an owl at rest, a bull charging, a cat ready to pounce, and an eagle soaring. Once per day the owner of this flask can drink from it (as a potion) and receive the benefit of one of the six following spells: bears endurance, bulls strength, cats Grace, foxes cunning, owls wisdom, or eagles splendor. Additionally 3 times per day the owner can drink from this flask a shot of the last type of alcohol they have imbibed. This magically created liquor has no nutritional value, will not alleviate dehydration, and lacks magical and alchemical properties. It will only assist the owner in getting drunk / hungover.
Cost: 2,500gp; Construction Requirements: craft wondrous, prestidigitation, bears endurance, bulls strength, cats grace, foxes cunning, owls wisdom, and eagles splendor

2021.10.15 23:16 amazonperson1234 It would be cool if your family doctor was allowed to set up people with social anxiety.

Think about it. If you want a therapist referral or drugs for anxiety, you have no choice but to see your family doctor. People with anxiety are unlikely to be on dating sites and most sign up for meetup groups but never go. But your family doctor knows them all. LOL

2021.10.15 23:16 HahaXDDxD Is she interested in me or hates me?

Hello guys. Sorry for my bad english. I met a girl on high school.
She is really good looking and really nice. She is from the second side of school so I didn’t even know what is her name. I didn’t know her but for some reason we got an eye contact whenever we met. Yeah, every single time I met her she was looking to my eyes and me aswell to hers. After few months when we were doing it I decided to talk to her. I waited for her after the school. We were talking about random stuffs but good thing is that she was holding the conversation, was really close to my body and looking to my eyes.
But then everything changed. Right now she does not try to setup eye contact like before. Whenever she spots me she looks into the ground. It looks like she is nervous. Anyway I told her: “Hi!” and she replied: “Hi!” and smiled. Legit I could see that she is really happy that I said hi to her but I am not sure why does she ignores me or waiting. I feel like she wants to show me that she is not interested to me…
My question is that: What do you think guys, is she interested or should I stop trying?

Wondering because if he got the rental with intentions to spin he must had been really certain he’d find a specific opp unless he was just planning to opp shop. Could it had been a drop given or did he still just get spotted.
