6 Minor "LLs" for Slaanesh roleplayers

TheWattmanTheWattman Junior MemberRegistered Users Posts: 1,233
First off, this thread assumes that Slaanesh will recieve 6 lords in total and those being, other than N'kari, Dechala, Azazel, Styrkaar, the Masque and of course Sigvald. However, in the event that some of you wishes to cover the world in a glorious blanket of **** and humping of other purposes, I have compiled a list of some characters that you could look to include among your generic lords down the road. I know its still early, but hey lets do it anyway. Some of these might though necesitate a mod like that of the Dogs of War Cross-Faction Recruitment, made by prop joe, for WH2:

1. Baron Pleskai von Wallenstein - Empire General
Wallenstein is the ruler of the Ostland town of Wurzen, who is secretly a worshipper of the Dark Prince. He betrayed Boven and Zundap, both nearby towns, by allowing them to get sacked ( >:) ) by a Slaaneshi army. He's planning to make Ostland a haven of chaos under the pretense of a power-alliance with the Count of Talabecland against Raukov's Ostland.

2. Jharkill - Ogre Tyrant
This guy is an Ogre dedicated to Slaanesh (scary!) who helped Archaon on his quest to become Everchosen, eventually becoming his Master of Beasts. And if you happen to run across Vilitch the Cursling of Tzeentch, make sure Jharkill gets his revenge for being killed by Vilitch after the Siege of Brilloinne Castle.

3. Casimir Ghislain - Bretonnian Lord
Another of Archaon's recruits.

4. Issyk Kul - Sorcerer of Slaanesh
A torturer in the service of Malekith, a blonde human by birth. Really likes to torture Elves.

5. Dravik Vayne - Dark Elf Dreadlord/Fleetmaster
A former Black Ark captain who dedicated himself to Slaanesh while trying to claim the Altar of Ultimate Darkness for Morathi. Later recruited by Archaon for a time, among things a battle against the son of Valkia the Bloody. Later tried to kill Archaon.

6. Elrion - Asur Prince
A leader of a group of Asur pleasure cultists, who helped N'kari kill some of the Blood of Aenarion and was present at Tor Annan. Later was mutated into a freak lapdog for N'kari.

Happy humping everyone!

    A human who serves Malakith as a torturer? Really? Interesting, how did that come about?

    Speculated he is a Kurgan, just like Asavar Kul. Or some other northern barbarian.

    I'm also perfectly fine with Slaanesh getting an original character or two, just to preserve thematic and gameplay variety.

    Just because a character is named from the lore doesn't mean that they wouldn't be thematically repetitive or have stale gameplay.

    He was more of an ally than a torturer. He led an important warband which was used by Morathi as cannon fodder when assaulting Ulthuan.

    Also, @TheWattman I don't remember Elrion being a prince, to me he was a common folk elf playing with things he barely understood.

    Well no, but Prince as in a hypothetical cross-race recruitment generic lord for Slaanesh in game 3. Just like the Dogs of War mod that you can recruit lords from different races, like an Asur Prince if you are say Empire.

    Wow didn't know Valkia ended up having a son. Her book was such a boring read. Much preferred Sigvald's and Egrimm's dedicated character books.

    After further research, I should also mention the other named Keeper of Secrets:

    Sslivox - considered the most inept of Slaanesh's servants due to, if you can believe it, his wits having left him from having spent too much time in Slaanesh's palace.
