Related to your pic: why is it that that the Adeptus Mechanicus abhors virtually all xenotech (tau, eldar, etc) but are generally depicted as absolutely thirsting to get their mitts on anything Necron related that they can?

Is it classified differently from other xenotech for *reasons*? Did some Fabricator General in the past give Necron tech a free pass like the catholic church did with capybaras or something?
>>
>>60795939
It's Nyarlathotep.

>"I do not recall distinctly when it began, but it was months ago. The general tension was horrible. To a season of political and social upheaval was added a strange and brooding apprehension of hideous physical danger; a danger widespread and all-embracing, such a danger as may be imagined only in the most terrible phantasms of the night. I recall that the people went about with pale and worried faces, and whispered warnings and prophecies which no one dared consciously repeat or acknowledge to himself that he had heard. A sense of monstrous guilt was upon the land, and out of the abysses between the stars swept chill currents that made men shiver in dark and lonely places. There was a daemoniac alteration in the sequence of the seasons—the autumn heat lingered fearsomely, and everyone felt that the world and perhaps the universe had passed from the control of known gods or forces to that of gods or forces which were unknown. And it was then that Nyarlathotep came out of Egypt. Who he was, none could tell, but he was of the old native blood and looked like a Pharaoh. The fellahin knelt when they saw him, yet could not say why. He said he had risen up out of the blackness of twenty-seven centuries, and that he had heard messages from places not on this planet. Into the lands of civilization came Nyarlathotep, swarthy, slender, and sinister..."

Because after a certain point, imperial officials are more corrupt than Hillary Clinton. They do what they want. "Rules for thee but not for me." Some high ranking Magus wants that tech. Either for their own personal gain, or because they believe that it will help the Imperirum, that the ends justify the means, and that they're smart enough to make an exception to their own rules. If the underlings object, then they'll probably be suicideded by two gunshot wounds to the back of the head if they're not just outright executed in the open for insubordination. Most underlings just go along with it because they know that it's unhealthy to question your superiors in 40k.

Interactions with lower levels of other branches of the Imperium, like rank and file guardsmen, will write off the Mechanicus' hunger for the xenotech as being ok because "they're the mechanicus and they know more about this stuff than a simple guardsmen like myself." Higher ranking members of the other branches might report the infraction to the Magus' superiors or the Inquisition, or they might take matters into their own hands. The matter will then be resolved through anything ranging from punishment of the magus, an under the table deal to keep quiet about the magus' activities, or outright war against the magus.

>>60800046
You could be right.

>>60800197
The thing is, probably 85% of the AdMech all obey strictly the puritan scriptures. However, the 15% who don't are the ones who cause all the conflicts that you read about when Necrons/Tau/Eldar end up invading a world because the hereteks were poking around where they shouldn't.

Thus, you only hear about the ones that want to open up Necron Tombs and masturbate all over them.

Literally why the One Ring couldn't be tossed into the sea.
>>
>>60800957
Not just because of the inevitability of Sauron finding it, but also because they did not know the sea. What manner of creatures might be found in the abyss, and which, or perhaps HOW MANY of them could be servants of Sauron?
>>
>>60800994
Few if any. Water in general and the sea especially were strongly opposed to Morgoth and his servants and they could find little purchase there, because Ulmo hated him most fiercely of all the Ainur and dwelt in Middle Earth the longest (long enough to help Men instead of being a dick like the rest, in fact.)
>>
>>60801029
Gandalf himself says "There are many things in the deep waters; and seas and land might change." I see that as a clear implication that the sea cannot be trusted, now or later.
>>
>>60801090
Again, I said few if any. I did not entirely discount the possibility, but the sea itself is the most 'pure' thing in Middle Earth. Morgoth and Sauron both avoided it.

The site as a whole dates to the Ptolemaic era. Sarcophogus was found 16 feet below current ground level. Nothing that says the sarcophogus doesn't pre-date the site, that it wasn't transported there for guarding from some other place that was no longer safe from the cultists that wished to unleash what was sealed inside so long ago. Secreted out in the night, the soldiers who guarded it being illiterate and their tongues cut out so they could tell no one what it was. In time it's guardians died and it's origin was forgotten, laying under the cold ground, waiting in silence for the time it would know the touch of the sun and the darkness of night again. When the pillars of heaven would shake.

Given their new year celebration was a community wide, piss drunk orgy so they could dazedly commune with a statue in the morning? Pretty much everything we do today. Heck, kids conceived at the party were favored over legetimate heirs and invited to the priesthood without question. One lady even got a plaque for her tomb to brag about how after a hard day running her business she liked to come home, get drunk and ride her husband till he passed out, then have her way with the maids.
>>
>>60801740
I require a source on that woman.
>>
>>60801786
I bet it's speculation by a historian with a fetish (other than the plaque, perverts exist in all societies.) You run into that problem a lot, unsubstantiated theories based entirely on what got the theorizer hard that aren't all that popular in academia but really popular for laymen because of shock value.
>>
>>60801786
I forget her name but she was part of an article on the history of booze. Look up Egyptian drinking culture and the phrase "walking in the marshes" which was their euphimism for drunk sex. It seems though that in ancient Egypt, getting drunk means getting laid and vice versa, they were inextricable.

There are enough records and murals from the era that we can be pretty sure of what happened.

More like skeptical. Anyone whose dipped their toes into anything having to do with ancient history has seen a ton of theories like I describe >>60801847 .

>>60802127

>>
>>60802133
Depends. Generally it was more "Their gods are real but their myths about how those gods created this or that are bullshit. They're weak pissy baby gods and ours are the best." Cross and bleed over happened often though, generally from people living next to each other and with their most popular deities. They'd just up and get adopted. Greeks and Romans especially were infamous for how much they loved conflating everyone's deities for their own or, when that didn't happen, adopting any deity they could and worshiping them too. Only people that gave them a headache were monotheists.

No, the point was to pass out in the temple, so the priests could wheel in a giant Hathor statue before waking everyone up with drums. Then you get to commune with the goddess mid-hangover.

>>60802553
To be fair, he's not making any outlandish claims that would require some obscure citation. The festival he's talking about (Festival of Drunkenness) is so well known that asking for sources is ridiculous. Pretty much every book on Ancient Egyptian religion and life mentions it, even if details vary (was it dedicated to Sekhmet or Hathor, both, or Hathor as Sekhmet, for example).

The one making an outlandish claim here is you, by claiming that something commonly accepted by the academic community at large didn't happen. If someone claims something basic like "humans need water to live" or "Erathosthenes calculated the circumference of the Earth" in a casual conversation and you deny the claim, the burden of proof is on you.
>>
>>60802553
Look, I'm sorry I can't spoonfeed you a bunch of academic articles from my phone at work, but I did give some terms and events to get you started. If you can't just look up the Feast/Festival of Drunkeness, then fine, remain ignorant of an interesting bit of history and keep on trolling.

You want to use the weight of authority then you're gonna need that authority senpai. Hate to tell you, but that's how it works. The minute it moved from him making a claim and me being simply derisive to him telling me to google it, he brought that need onto himself.

The null isn't the one that needs to provide proof first, it's their job to provide counter-evidence of evidence is presented. If there's no evidence then there's no authority and it amounts to nothing. Which is what it should have been, he's the one who first started talking about sources and the like when I derided him.

Polytheism is a myth. No one in any culture ever worshiped more than one god, pagans are only thought to have worshiped a pantheon because when they were conquered it was easier for the empire that they were now part of to simply pay lip service to everyone's own communal god than force the issue, and accepting all the gods as part of one religion helped build unity.
>>
>>60803048
The festival being a thing is the accepted academic position. What you're saying is akin to saying "He's making the claim by presenting gravity as fact." Sorry dude, but the one with the controversial position here is you. It's your job to provide some evidence supporting your controversial position.

The Valar were total assholes to Men, abandoning them to serve and die under Morgoth and later Sauron, refusing to bring them to Valinor or assist them in any way. Manwe outright forbade Ulmo from interfering whatsoever, which Ulmo defied to try and help Men and the Noldor. It was only when a half-elf (Elf, the favored of the Valar) came to Valinor, all orchestrated by Ulmo, that they deigned to help, and then abandoned Men afterwards. Even the Numenoreans were treated as second class beings next to Elves.

I think the implication there was that Fucked Up Shit might be down there even if it's not serving Sauron directly. Dagon or an especially ambitious tuna finding the One Ring isn't going to be meaningfully different from an orc personally delivering it to Sauron or an elf lord using it for good.

If you're gonna make a claim, you should back it up when asked. I don't think >>60802009 actually gave a shit, though, because he didn't ask for sources or clarification, he just threw a bitchfit about somebody explaining something cool. The general premise is valid, the implementation is that of a man with forty-three dicks in his mouth.

See also: Impossible to prove anything. Technically correct. Usually brought up because you're an asshole. Great for circular arguments that don't go anywhere.
>>
>>60803199
I didn't ask him for proof because, as pointed out, this is not a formal debate or an academic circle. I merely expressed doubt. To do the opposite would be to actual morph this into a formal debate. On 4chan. Surely you know how stupid that would be.

>>
>>60803113
First, this is not an actual debate so I have no need to educate you on the basics. If this were an actual debate, you'd be expected to have at least some knowledge on the topic and the default academic position, because you'd be coming to overturn it, because it is you who is making the claim, namely the claim being "This whole festival thing is bullshit, didn't happen," thus you'd be expected to review the existing evidence yourself and prepare counterarguments for it.

Since this is a cool piece of history, I'm going to get you started: The World Ancient Egypt by Peter Lacovara, the section on Drinking Festivals.

No shit it's not a debate. I told him that a billion times. Blame him for bringing sources into things, stop white knighting and use your brain.

Also not all debates occur within context of an academic circle. Many debates are meant to contrast views or make the case for a view. This would be getting into philosophy a bit, but only certain facts can be assumed as common collective knowledge while others, specialized knowledge, cannot be assumed as the default unless the two parties are arguing within that same background or position.

His guns? Made from holy materials firing consecrated silver from church crosses tipped with mercury blessed in the same manner holy water is or explosives which are also blessed all with the churches rites.

It might be that the grave was actually set up and paid for by this guy's enemy(is). The Egyptians believed that your afterlife is directly related to your grave, and you can literally erase someone from the afterlife by removing their name and history. That's why there are pharaohs who we can't name, since their successor had all records of their name scraped right off the walls of their own tomb, and everywhere else they could find it.
Burying someone in a black box with no name and a busted face would mean deleting them utterly. I wouldn't be surprised if this guy got executed.

No joke, Vlad was a legitimate hero, bad rap or not. A lot of that was exaggerated or only targeted at his enemies, not the people. Spent his entire life defending his homeland from the Ottomans even after they raised him and put him in office, hoping for a puppet ruler like his shitty brother Ragul or whatever ended up. Speaking of, his life is basically like a novel. His greatest enemies were traitorous former associates and nobles of his father, and his younger brother, who grew up in the same situation as him but converted to Islam and became a die-hard supporter of the Ottomans and fought directly against Vlad several times.

It's very easy for the imagination to be captivated by a closed box. Dark, foreboding, mysterious, arcane. It's exactly what every researcher hopes to find. So much so that barely any mnestics above Class-B would be required for all of them to believe this is what they found. Except, of course, for the effectiveness of the Class-M amnestics administered so they forget about the open box they actually unearthed.

The boys at Site 63 put together the dummy box. It's amazing what they can artificially age, and with the library of preserved texts at their disposal, it was trivial of them to fill the container with enough goodies to
excite and mystify generations of Egyptologists.

No one would notice one additional truck among the supply vehicles that left that day, among all of the hubbub. Whether or not the open box could serve any future purpose was irrelevant at this point. It would be secured and protected, a vain gesture to the Director that something had been done, that something could be done in the future.

A closed box stimulates the imagination in an optimistic way. What could be inside? An open box stimulates nightmares and dread that would haunt every member of that task force. They knew exactly what was inside. The question now is: where did it go?

I don't know why they just use skeletons. Skeletons are instantly recognizable! Even if it's the skeleton of some weird crustacean that you've never seen before, you can usually tell "this is the remains of a dead thing", because it has that skeleton look. Any lifeform that might evolve after our demise, even if they're octopuses or something is still going to feel an instinctual wariness about skeletons and recognize them as a sign of danger. So they just need to surround the nuclear waste site with a fuckton of rad skeleton statues. Who's not going to understand that? You just need to make them out of something that'll last a few eons.

They could also throw in some painful but nonlethal traps. If you're trespassing in some ancient facility and a hidden switch makes tiny spikes shoot up through your foot, it won't kill you but you'll definitely get the idea they didn't want you there. If the traps are deliberately nonlethal they might even get the idea that the person who made it might have your wellbeing in mind!

There is no image to restore. It is the faceless king whose name is unremembered, buried where the gods can't see beneath the ruins of the river kings, last remnant of a nation that never existed, of a people that were never born, of a kingdom that never was. That box and all it contains is the last scar of a timeline erased by the gods themselves for unknown sins.

I wonder what would happen if someone were to do a human sacrifice on top of it.
You know, just food for thoughts.
Maybe we could also cast spells at it or something.

The romans didn't believe in foreign gods, they believed instead that everyone else believed in their gods, in their own primitive ways (except egypt. They had advanced ancient foreigner ways)

There's always the "just in case" stuff, and the "please don't lynch our legions" stuff, but overall they were quite assured of their own cultural superiority.
>>
>>60811592
Gotcha. My point was that normally, a cover-up job like this would be easy: Humans want so desperately to believe in finding mysterious and spooky hidden treasures that it would barely take any drugs to implant false memories.

However the event of the original unearthing was so traumatic and terrifying that the cover-up had to burn all of their memories of that day down (with high class amnestics) to the ground and start over from scratch. Hence the need for better mnestics to do the implant.

In my view the hallmarks of a good entry are: callousness towards humanity (casually having to erase memories), disregard for humanitys wish for order (cynically planting a dummy box because that's what they want to find), and feeling worse for having read the entry (knowledge that something *even worse* than something humans can imagine might be in a spooky box is loose). And of course, the banality and futility of the greater mission.

I want you to go back and read the Silmarillion and see how the Valar treated the elves vs. how they treat men.
>>
>>60811970
100% in character
>>
>>60813383
I think that the Valar took the hands off approach with men because they realized how badly they screwed up with the elves
>>
>>60813506
>Badly screwed up
Elves only very rarely fall to darkness, biggest issue was the Noldor doing some kinslaying. Elves are also far more powerful and 'technologically' developed. Meanwhile all Men have been corrupted to some degree and wallow in misery and ignorance, barely any of them are not under the yoke of Sauron and the ones who aren't are slowly dying off at the time of LoTR.
>>
>>60813589
And yet it is their age who is comming, not the age of the elves.
Trough the hardship of their lives, Man are tested and can build great things despite the limitation imposed upon them. Their is also the gift of death, gifted by Ea himself.

You must also take in account the Valar don't really want to interfer directly because they are not exactly sure Ea allowed them to do that. That's why they asked him about the Numenorian fleet.
>>
>>60813646
Their age is coming because Eru decreed it, not because of any innate strength or ability of their own, but because the world is slowly draining the elves and turning them into bodiless spirits. That has nothing to do with Men themselves. Eru's 'gift' is literally just the ability to go to the christian afterlife and has nothing to do with how the Valar act.

>They're not sure if they're allowed
Didn't stop them from helping elves without any permission.
>>
>>60813683
>Didn't stop them from helping elves without any permission.

It was an earlier age, don't forget one of the recurent theme is how magic is fading from the world and all that.
>>
>>60813748
That doesn't have anything to do with them helping men or not, anon.
>>
>>60813773
Kinda tough ? Men represent the "New Age". A time where they no longer must interact with the world, make sense they would put a distance betwen them, more than with the elves.
>>
>>60813867
No, there's no decree that says they must stop interacting. Hiding themselves away is their OWN discretion and was brought about by their own actions.
>>
>>60810813
The way Romans defaced statues was that they would just hit the nose off.
This thing looks like its face melted off.
Could be that the bust was just a regular bust once upon a time and then the elements came and fucked it up and now we, the oh so enlightened future people are scared of a big black stone sarcophagus and a partially melted bust.
>>
>>60814149
It looks like it was chiseled all over, not something the elements would have done.
>>
In my dreams, I saw that face, the pale, featureless white visage of a forgotten king.
It whispered to my ears, words that only we two knew of, and when I tried to answer it, the face grew teeth, and smiled. .
