    Well now I'm conflicted. The "forget everything you thought you knew about the Deceiver" part makes me think he's probably more benevolent then his GW portrayal but having no soul is even worse then having a corrupted one.

    Well, fuck me. I can't even take a weeks vacation from this thread without you people going ahead and selling our anal virginities to elder beings from beyond the stars.

    I guess it falls to me to bring about the incline again. In case you people had forgotten, we're GRIMDARK and EXTREME here. That means no bowing to filthy non-human star-devouring entities. That means - when faced with the choice between a bullet to the brain and SELLING THE FUCKING SOUL OF HUMANITY TO C'TAN - bullet ALWAYS wins. The only valid answer here would've been never to use that idiotic ring. But seeing as SOMEONE couldn't leave well enough alone, we must cut our losses and vote:

    From roots entry about the star gods it seems the deceiver is not on the best of terms with his chums.

    How would the c'tan survive if all life got eradicated though, don't they need souls to survive?

    They "ate" star energy before, they can do it again. Souls are gourmet for them, stars are regular chow.

    Awww, fuck it, number 9536 flip-flops to B!!!1111111 After all, the only need for the Deceiver would be the role of a panic button. And we don't need those :rpgcodex:

    Flipfloopers... flipfloppers never change.

    Guys I know we would all like to decline his offer and go on our merry way.... but can we really win if we do that? Yeah, theoretically we can but considering it took us ~3 choices before we needed a deus ex machine to survive... do we want to take that chance? Is humanity not better off with a slightly "corrupt" Hax with a god by his side than a Filthy Malfian on the throne?

    This is politics and we need to be able to compromise if we are to survive. If we stick to playing only our own game we won't stand a chance.

    Funny you mention that, because wasn't the ice wasteland the consequence of this way of thinking? Never compromising and accepting the lesser evil?

    Or something, shitty memory and too much time since I played the game.

    That part seemed to me, like Geralt was taken to the future, and that enemy mage was actually the kid he found and sort of adopted. And those ice monsters what remained of humanity because of adaptation to the icy times and war and such.

    But I'm really dumb when it comes to interpreting stuff. Symbolism and metaphors and shit are mostly lost on me.

    So if you ask me my official non-dumb opinion of that ending part I would say that that made no sense.

    Malice should make an appearance and troll the other Chaos gods.

    Malal

    The you go :)

    I read it on Lexicanum as both, and it kept referring to him as Malice, but it is Malal and I will call him that from now on.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    EDIT: Double post eradicated.

    Hm, root, you changed the options and a bit of the text (hax winning vs making both of them lose; help deceiver / don't help -> compromise / don't compromise).

    Obviously our first duty is to the Imperium. No one is questioning that. Nor do we need to worry about falling to Chaos. We do have to worry about turning into a flesh eating Xenos, however (although grimmer, darker things have gained Imperial sanction, actually...). This choice as I understand it isn't about right/wrong or selling out the Imperium, but instead a puritan/radical choice. Much like many inquisitors make, actually. Given the current situation (Emperor dead, our sector is the last bastion of the order, Chaos seeking to reach the Golden Throne), it is clearly time to get RADICAL. Noble and satisfying as suicide may be, it is also the easy way out. The Imperium requires sacrifice!

    Malal is pretty much an "outdated" and thus inexistant Chaos God, I think it wasn't mentioned anymore on the latest chaos codex.

    That took a while, but I am proud to say I have read this magnificent thread through, and am now in a position to make an informed vote.

    I think we're focusing too much on the Tyrant Star, the Deceiver and the big conspiracy within the Imperium and forgetting about the motherfucking Emperor himself. He may have died, or maybe even murdered due to this whole conspiracy thing, but his spirit is surely gathering strength in the Warp.

    Consider that by turning down the C'tan god, we might be paving the way for another god to support us, one born of the Emperor himself.

    And now a pic to get you all motivated:

    Let me remind you that Deciever is very aptly named. Most likey Hax is going to end up a mindless slave to his will whatever he says now. For all we know he cannot stop the halo device and can control Hax, just making him believe...
    Don't be EMOFAGS, begging on all fours, to be raeped in the ass.

    Be like a true BRO and stand up any danger whatever the cost :bro:
    Vote B!

    Unit 3108 also stated that he's not playing the Deceiver entirely as GW intended.

    Also, root, you mentioned that you went for Baron Samedi look for the avatar Hax sees. Is it pure aesthetic choice or does the Deceiver have some of the baron's personality characteristics in this LP?

    See that guy on the throne? See how his hands fell off? How dry and drained he is? Too much fapping does that to you. Stop it and vote for greater good!
