From the Warhammer 40k setting, Slaanesh lord of Hedonism


Last time I brought a Warhammer 40k thing it didn't get the slightest interest, let's see how it goes this time. The basic idea came to me from this page (Slaanesh (3.5e Deity) - D&D Wiki, then I expanded with all the mechanics and its sheer. Its class its the lust singer from this manual (Weekly Wonders - Archetypes of Sin Volume IV - Lust - Necromancers of the Northwest | Weekly Wonders |

Engage in sexual activity with another individual for only pure sexual pleasure. Pray aloud to Slaanesh before and after the act, and encourage your partner to do the same. If no suitable partner is available, engage in other pleasurable activities leading to excess, whether it is furious masturbation or gorging yourself until you feel nauseous doesn't matter. Gain a +4 sacred or profane bonus on Charisma checks and Charisma-based skill checks when interacting with an intelligent creature that could be sexually attracted to you. The type of bonus depends on your alignment—if you’re neither good nor evil, you must choose either sacred or profane the first time you perform your obedience. Once made, this choice can’t be changed.

Divine Gift
The character can cast quickened dominate person (CL 20th). If the target is someone that could be sexually attracted to her, she can increase the save DC of this spell-like ability by an amount equal to her Charisma modifier.

1: Kiss of the Excess (Sp)
unnatural lust 3/day, detect thoughts 2/day, or vampiric touch 1/day

2: Tempting Flesh (Su) You can shape your flesh into seductive forms. You gain the change shape universal monster ability, usable once per day as a standard action, allowing you to take the shape of any Small or Medium humanoid. Your natural form becomes beautiful and sexually appealing, and you gain horns, a pointed tail, and small wings. While in your natural form, you gain a tiefling’s darkvision and fiendish resistance racial traits as well as the prehensile tail and vestigial wings alternate racial traits of the tiefling. If you’re already a tiefling, you gain a +2 bonus to Charisma plus these additional alternate racial traits without losing fiendish sorcery or skilled racial traits. In any form, you gain a +4 bonus on Bluff checks to deceive or lie.

3: Deadly Caress (Su) Like with a succubus, romantic or sexual contact with you can be deadly. When you engage in an act of passion (such as a kiss) with another creature, you bestow one negative level upon that creature. You must grapple an unwilling creature to use this ability on them. Such an act of passion also has the effect of a suggestion spell asking the victim to accept another act of passion. The DC of this suggestion, as well as the DC to remove any negative levels bestowed this way, is equal to 10 + half your Hit Dice + your Charisma modifier. You can initially activate this ability only once per day, but once you do so to target a specific creature, you can affect that creature with this ability at will.

1: Chaos's Tongue (Sp)
charm person 3/day, eagle’s splendor 2/day, or suggestion 1/day

2: Stunning Touch (Su) When using the dazing touch power granted by the Charm domain, you can cause the creature touched to become stunned for 1 round instead of dazed. If you don’t have access to the Charm domain, you instead gain the ability to use the dazing touch power a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier, as listed in the ability; however, you only daze your opponents instead of stunning them.

3: Protective Grace (Ex) You may add your Charisma bonus to your AC while wearing light or no armor. This bonus applies against touch attacks. Any condition that would cause you to lose your Dexterity bonus to AC also causes you to lose your Charisma bonus to AC.

1: Killer from the Warp (Sp)
vanish 3/day, invisibility 2/day, or twilight knife 1/day

2: Movement of the Warp (Ex) For a number of rounds per day equal to your Charisma bonus, you can ignore attacks of opportunity you would otherwise provoke due to your movement. Using this ability is a free action, and the rounds in which you use it don’t need to be consecutive. You still provoke attacks of opportunity normally for actions other than moving.

3: Death Is But a Word (Sp) Your devotion to Slaanesh is rewarded with a single whisper from her lips to your ear alone, revealing one of the countless words the Prince of Pleasure knows to cause death. Each of her worshipers receives a unique word. When you learn it, you can use the word to cast power word kill as a spell-like ability once per day.

Antipaladin Code
Antipaladins of Slaanesh pursue their obsession in a maniacal way. Some go from brothel to brothel leaving behind a host of bastards, others are gluttons who devour whatever is in front of them, others are bloodthirsty butchers that can be found on the battlefields rolling in slaughter and blood. Their tenets include the following adages.
  • I devote myself to the pursuit of my passions.​
  • Life is made up of pleasure, I will not postpone what I can taste today until tomorrow.​
  • I take what I want, if someone objects I will consume him too.​
  • I will live my life as I want and I will not allow anyone to take away my freedom.​
Slaanesh is the youngest of the four major Chaos Gods (the other three being Nurgle, Khorne, and Tzeentch). Like the other Chaos gods, Slaanesh grew from a single survivalist emotion: in this case, the emotion was pleasure. Slaanesh is the Chaos god of passion, excess, and sensualism, also referred to as the Pursuer of Excess.

Slaanesh's gender is ambiguous; said to be neither male nor female, and yet both. In physical form, Slaanesh is perfection. A long-limbed, elegant, androgynous figure with a haunting, almost frightening beauty. Slaanesh's appearance depends more on the observer than the observed, changing eagerly to please and seduce the eye of the beholder--taking whatever form is most attractive to the mortal blessed by Slaanesh's presence. Rumor amongst man says that with one glance, you will forfeit your very soul to Slaanesh's every whim.

The correct adjective to indicate individuals and events related to this Chaos god is "Slaaneshi".

While the youngest and least powerful of the Major Chaos Gods, Slaanesh is still a crucial player in the incomprehensible game that they play. Although unable to stand alone against any one other Chaos God, garnering support from an alliance is often enough to swing the balance, allowing Slaanesh considerably more influence than innate power would otherwise allow.

Slaanesh's followers seek pleasure in every experience, and quickly become inured to more mundane things, including sounds and colours; thus they dress rather extravagantly. Followers dress in robes which are often opened to leave the right side of the chest uncovered, a requirement of many of the rituals involved in his worship. Pastel and electric shades are the chief colours, although white is often used as well. These colours are also sometimes carried over into everyday wear, although they may be modified to fit in with current fashions. Regardless of any considerations, all Slaanesh followers wear garb of sensuously high quality. They often wear copious amounts of jewelry bearing erotic motifs. Even Slaaneshi battle armor tends to have colorful fabrics draped over it, if it isn't completely painted.

Slaanesh bestows favour upon any who act on an interest for an art, whether the art is that of combat, of painting, of poetry or of passion, asking only that followers pursue sensual experiences and hedonistic pleasures, making this cult very popular indeed.

Clergy and Temples
As with the other Chaos Gods, Slaanesh is worshipped not by a single organized religion, but by hundreds of individual cults with their own unique practices and rituals. All cults of Slaanesh are pleasure cults, in which most rituals involve gathering in stunningly decorative temples to pursue all manners of arts and carnal pleasures; the enjoyment of each different sensual experience being considered a praise to the Pursuer of Excess.

Where their practices are frowned upon, Slaaneshi cults perform their rituals in secret, but otherwise interact with society just like anyone else (although they always wear more lavish clothing than the common citizen, even in public). In societies where their practices are accepted (or even merely tolerated), they have no qualms about performing their rituals in the open. Indeed, many of their temples are open-air structures, being architectural masterpieces but serving little practical function aside from aesthetic appeal.

When Slaaneshi cults go to battle, it is done not out of necessity, but out of desire for the many new experiences and senses that war brings. Worshippers of Slaanesh are known for their complete lack of fear, as they see losing a battle is a new experience to be enjoyed. While not interested in the dirty warfare of Khorne's narrow-minded berserkers, Slaanesh does enjoy combat of the artistic sort, taking pleasure in watching extremely talented gladiator battles, where the act of fighting is transformed from a means to an end into an art form all its own.

Dream Visitor (Su)
Slaanesh can cause a creature with which it is familiar to have romantic dreams about him. This functions as the spell dream, except that Slaanesh may also make a Diplomacy check to increase the creature’s attitude towards him. The target must be familiar enough with Slaanesh to be able to recognize him, or Slaanesh are unable to influence their attitude towards him in this way.

Divine Traits (Greater Deity) (Ex)
As a Greater Deity, Slaanesh gains a +48 divine bonus to: armor class; attack rolls; checks (ability checks, caster level checks, skill checks, etc.); difficulty class (for any special abilities, spell-like abilities, spells); initiative; saving throws and spell resistance. Slaanesh’s natural attacks or any weapons it wields, are treated as chaotic and epic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. A Greater Deity does not age, requires no air to breathe, no food or drink to sustain itself, nor sleep.

Energy Drain (Su)
Slaanesh drains energy from a mortal it lures into an act of passion, such as a kiss. An unwilling victim must be grappled before Slaanesh can use this ability. Slaanesh's kiss bestows 16 negative levels when she uses this ability against mythic creatures, or 32 levels against non-mythic creatures. The kiss also causes madness; this works as the Insanity spell except instead of the normal confusion effect, the victim irrationally believes the Slaanesh is its one true love. How this belief causes the victim to act depends on the victim and varies wildly from complete infatuation, to worship, to irrational jealousy, even to attempts to kidnap and/or force oneself on Slaanesh. Attempts at what the victim believes is a stable, healthy relationship are not unheard of and rather hilarious (for Slaanesh). The victim must succeed on a DC 208 Will save to negate the Insanity. The DC is 208 for the Fortitude save to remove a negative level. These save DCs are Charisma-based.

Forceful Presence (Ex)
Slaanesh uses its Charisma score as well as its Constitution score when calculating hit points.

Hermafrodite (Ex)
Slaanesh is a hermafrodite and is considered both male and female for purposes of effects, talents, and classes. It can put pregnant and get pregnant.

Mythic (Ex)
Slaanesh has Mythic Power (16/day, Surge +4d6) and counts as a 16th-rank Mythic creature. Slaanesh can use any of its Alter Reality and spell-like abilities effect as the Mythic versions of those spells (if a Mythic version of that spell exists), expending Mythic Power as normal. It can also expend Mythic Power to use the augmented versions of these spells.

Obsessive Devotion (Su)
Slaanesh can instill an obsessive devotion in a single creature within line of sight. By concentrating on the creature as a standard action, Slaanesh can force him to succeed on a Will save DC 208 or become obsessed with a single creature, object, or concept that he is currently exposed to. The object of the target’s obsession is determined by Slaanesh, but comes from the target’s immediate environment. It might be a specific creature or object, or something more abstract: a target in an average tavern might become obsessed with the type of music being performed, with beer, with all the various travelers and their comings and goings, or with tavern wenches in general (rather than one in specific). Using or invoking this obsession in some way as part of making a Charisma-based check against the target grants a +32 circumstance bonus on the check. Additionally, the target’s attitude towards the object of his obsession (and creatures related to the object of his obsession) increases to helpful. Many targets will actively seek out and attempt to interact with or possess the object of their obsession, but this ability does not strictly compel them to do so. An obsession inflicted in this way lasts for 1 day per HD of Slaanesh, although depending on the individual and the obsession, the obsession may remain after the compulsion from this ability has ended. Slaanesh can use this ability at will, but it cannot use it on any given creature more than once per day. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Perfect Copy (Su)
When Shaanesh uses change shape, it can assume the appearance of specific individuals.

Profane Ascension (Su)
As a swift action while in an act of passion with a willing mortal, Shaanesh may grant a profane ascension. A purple mark manifests somewhere on the target’s body. The target immediately gains a +16 anarchic bonus to any one ability score of its choice, a +8 anarchic bonus to any other ability score of its choice, and the amorphous quality though the energy of the Warp. A single creature may have only one profane ascension in effect at any one time. As long as the effect persists, Shaanesh can communicate telepathically with the target across any distance and may use any of its spell-like abilities through the target, manifesting them as if the target were using them. A profane ascension may be removed by a miracle or wish. Shaanesh can remove it as a free action, dealing 10d6 points of Charisma drain and imparting 1d20+16 permanent negative levels to the victim.

Steal Affection (Su)
As a standard action, Shaanesh can touch a creature to attempt to redirect its feelings of affection and kindness towards a specific creature to him. The target is entitled to a Will save DC 208 to negate the effect. When Shaanesh use this ability, it must select a single creature other than the target, that is known to both him and the target. The target’s attitude towards Shaanesh is changed to match her previous attitude towards the chosen creature, and her attitude towards that creature changes to match her previous attitude to Shaanesh. In addition to influencing the effects of Diplomacy checks, at the GM’s discretion, this may carry certain other benefits, based on the nature of the relationship between the target and the selected creature. This change is permanent, but can later be affected by further interaction with Shaanesh or with the selected creature. It can also be dispelled with greater dispel magic augmented to 10th level, and is treated as having a caster level equal to 106. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Suggestive Writing (Su)
Shaanesh can implant a suggestion effect in romantic or explicit writing, causing anyone who reads it to be affected as though by the spell suggestion, with a caster level equal to 106. Preparing a piece of writing in this way takes 1 hour and requires 500 gp in special perfumes and ink. Shaanesh determine the nature of the suggestion at the time the writing is made. While the suggestion can be anything, the writing itself must be romantic or explicit in some way, and the suggestion must be included in the writing at some point. The first time that a given creature reads the writing, he must succeed on a Will save DC 208 or be forced to carry out the suggestion. Once a creature has been affected in this way once (regardless of whether he succeeds or fails on his saving throw), he cannot be affected again by the same piece of writing. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Sweetest Shape (Su)
As a standard action, Shaanesh can alter his form with change shape, perfectly mimicking the ideal intimate partner of a single creature of his choosing within line of sight. The chosen creature may make a Will save DC 208, and if it succeeds on the save, Shaanesh instead simply transform into an appearance that is generally considered attractive, rather than catering to that creature’s specific tastes. If the creature failed its Will save, Shaanesh also gain a +32 bonus on Bluff, Diplomacy and Disguise checks involving seduction or romance, but only against that creature. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Lust Singer (Bard Archetype)
Lust singers are bards who turn their talents solely to the purpose of satisfying romantic desires. Obsessed with flesh and pleasure, these bards use music and magic to attract and charm potential mates and strip even the most prudish individuals of their inhibitions.

Gilt Tongue (Ex): Lust singers are skilled at lecherous come-ons and sweet nothings, using their golden tongues to convince others to do things they otherwise might only dream of doing. A lust singer adds 1/2 his level (minimum 1) to all Charisma checks and Charisma-based skill checks made to convince another character to take a romantic or lustful action. If the action is to involve the lust singer, this bonus is doubled. This ability replaces the bardic knowledge class feature.

Bardic Performance: A lust singer gains bardic performance as normal, but can use his performance to perform tunes that incite lust and illicit sensual desires from the listeners. This allows him to perform the following new songs.

Attraction (Su): At 1st level, a lust singer can use his bardic performance in order to make a character attracted to another character. He can target a single character within 90 feet when he uses this ability. At 3rd level, and every 3 levels thereafter, he can target an additional character when using this ability. When he uses this performance, the affected character must succeed on a Will save (DC = 10 + 1/2 the lust singer’s level + the lust singer’s Charisma modifier) or become overwhelmed with romantic and/or sexual desire for another character the target can clearly see. This infatuation remains for as long as the lust singer continues the performance, plus a number of minutes thereafter equal to 10 times the number of rounds the lust singer maintained this performance. The target is treated as attracted to the specified individual for purposes of spells and abilities relating to a character’s attraction to another individual. Likewise, for the purposes of abilities and effects used by the character she is infatuated with which reference the target normally being attracted to characters of a specific race and gender, the target is considered to normally be attracted to the specified individual while under the effects of this ability. This is a mind-affecting enchantment charm effect and relies on auditory and visual components. This ability replaces the fascinate bardic performance.

Sensual Sanctuary (Su): At 3rd level, a lust singer can attempt to use a target’s attraction for another character to prevent her from harming them. A lust singer can use his bardic performance to fill a target who is attracted to another character with lustful thoughts that keep her from being able to do them harm. The lust singer may target a single character when he uses this ability, and the target must be able to clearly see and hear the lust singer’s performance. The target must succeed on a Will save (DC = 10 + 1/2 the lust singer’s level + the lust singer’s Charisma modifier) or be so overwhelmed with desire that she is unable to attack or perform any hostile action against any character of a race and gender that she would normally be attracted to. If the target is attacked by such a character, the effect is broken, and she cannot be affected by this ability again for 24 hours. At 7th level, if the target succeeds on her saving throw, she still suffers a –1 penalty to attack and damage rolls against characters of a race and gender she is normally attracted to. At 11th level, and every 4 levels thereafter, this penalty increases by a further -1. This ability replaces the inspire competence bardic performance.

Suggestion (Sp): At 6th level, the lust singer gains the suggestion ability as normal, except that he can only use it to suggest romantic or erotic courses of action, and can only target a character affected by his attraction bardic performance. If the suggested action involves another character that the lust singer is romantically attracted to, the DC to resist the suggestion is increased by +2. This ability modifies the suggestion bardic performance.

Mass Suggestion (Sp): At 18th level, the lust singer can use his suggestion bardic performance to affect any number of characters that are affected by his attraction ability. This ability modifies the mass suggestion bardic performance.

Carnal Delight (Su): At 20th level, the lust singer can incite incredible sensual desire and lustful urges in a large group of individuals, causing them to pursue carnal delights, to the exclusion of all other activities. The lust singer can affect any number of characters within 60 feet who can clearly see and hear him. Each target must succeed on a Will save (DC = 10 + 1/2 the lust singer’s level) or take no action other than to pursue carnal pleasures with the nearest living character, seeking them out to kiss and caress until the beginning of their next turn. Each round, affected characters can attempt a new Will save to resist this ability, and a character that succeeds on its saving throw is immune to the effects of this ability for 1 hour. This ability replaces the deadly performance bardic performance.

Lustful Enchantment (Su): At 5th level, a lust singer can imbue certain spells to draw out the lust inherent in the target. Targets under the effects of a charm or compulsion effect created by a spell the lust singer casts fuel the magic of the spell with their inherent lust. Each round the affected character pursues a romantic or erotic action, the spell’s duration is not reduced. This ability replaces the lore master class feature.

personally i am not an expert on WH40k lore but this seems pretty legit. What status would be the other chaos gods be? still greater gods(Maybe just more buffed) or would you push one or 2 to elder one?

Good question. Warhammer has no concept of divine ranks and one cannot rely on power to understand rank because the powers of the chaos gods are almost unknown. The others I would put them as Greater Deity with a lot of esoteric abilities. Perhaps only Tzeentch for his foresight and magic control ability would put him as Elder One. Or following the canon "With the ebb and flow of psychic energy within the Warp, the power of a Chaos God expands and contracts, and their realm will shift accordingly. For long periods, one god may dominate the others, fed by its own success and leeching its foes' energy for its own growth.
Eventually, the other gods will ally against the dominant force, and through combined efforts reduce it in power until another of their number rises to prominence." There would be a constant shift in power, with three Greater Deities and one Elder One alternating like the tides.

actually that makes sense. 3 greater gods with esoteric ability would be able to take an elder one down if combined and through that another would rise. Thats a cool concept actually

"Allies: Prostitutes, hermaphrodite, pansexual individuals, libertines"

This made me chuckle more than anything else these days.

Thank you. :)


My personal feeling is that it can be done, but you’ve dialed the sex and non-consent thing up to 400% unnecessarily.

If you look at the fiction both in game and out of game for Slaanesh, it’s far more about temptation, pride, excess and confusion than actual sex. In the recent Total War game there are nine rings of temptation. Only one of which is about sex… and they all involve choice.

When you look at characters like Sigvald or Lucius the eternal, it’s generally overwhelming pride that defines them. Not how much nookie they have.

That really isn’t reflected in your character abilities. In fact they’re all just a bit rapey. Particularly the lust singer.

The actual rules for Slaanesh themself probably aren’t that important as they don’t interact with mortals.

Actually I reduced it a lot to be able to post it on enworld without breaking the community rules.

Unfortunately I couldn't make it all round without giving it another 5000 different abilities that made it even more broken. I preferred to concentrate between the various obsessions on lust and left the rest to the flavour of the description.

In the world of Warhammer Fantasy and 40k but here we are trying to put the gods on paper.

I see, I guess ‘whatever floats your boat’ as Slaanesh would say.

It’s a lot less useful to me if it’s mainly just about sex, but you clearly know your audience. Thank you for taking the time to tone it down this far.
