"Alissa Henson was a sorceress and niece of famed sorceress Aurora Henson. She worked as dwimveandra and was responsible for the eventual downfall of the Vigilantes."

"The Vigilantes were a fanatical organization active in the Northern Kingdoms whose purpose was to track and eliminate witches, warlocks and anybody else who dealt with dark magic. The unit was commanded by the Hale family, in particular by Octavia Hale, also known as the "Witchfinder", and by Fabian Hale."

You're asking the wrong question. You should be wonderingwhose bird this is.

That's even being generous. At least Hammer was stylish and charming. Musk has the personality of a damp rag.

Thousand Sons get mind bullets.

Blood Angels are like...really pretty.

Space Wolves get the ability to completely ignore how terrible they smell.

Emperor's Children get nothing, because there's nothing redeemable about them.

The sub is called 40k lore but really it's for 40k AND 30k

It's mostly 30k at this point. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

It's basically Mechanicum wifi.

Machines equipped to connect to the noosphere can communicate through it to other machines and tech priests can project their consciousness into the noosphere to communicate to other tech priests, machine spirits or just convey or recieve data.

It's highly secure compared to other traditional networks and is resistant to scrapcode (essentially chaos viruses). This is most prominently evidenced in the book Mechanicum during the Horus Heresy when during the Schism of Mars, the traitors devastated loyalist forges with a scrapcode attack (known as the Loss of Innocence) but were unable to penetrate the systems of a few loyalist forges that had upgraded to noosphere technology.

There is a somewhat warp-like (but not Chaos aligned) element to it as it appears to relate to the Omnissiah's spiritual control over technology, and it's connected to the power of machine savants who have mysterious, intuitive understanding and control over machines.

If I remember in Know no Fear, scrapcode was able to infect Calth’s noosphere?

I think you're right but if I recall, the WB did kind of a Trojan horse attack by including it in seemingly innocuous data transfers, rather than the blunt force attack against a 40k version of a firewall that the Traitors used on Mars.

I've read most of the HH books at this point and can't think of a single interaction between the Lion and Magnus in the source material.

At first blush, it seems like they're uniquely poorly matched with Magnus being focused on ephemeral and esoteric pursuits and largely viewing conquest to be a tedious task undertaken out of necessity to uplift the conquered.

The Lion on the other hand is extremely driven by the moral rightness of conquest and unwavering loyalty to the Emperor's vision of a galaxy dominated by mankind. He abandons most if not all other pursuits in service to this ideal and is probably the most grounded in the practical realities of the GC.

To make matters worse, they're both amongst the most arrogant of the Primarchs which says something.

However, I wonder if Magnus appreciates the nobility of the Lion's dedication to the Emperor's cause. In the preamble of A Thousand Sons he declares the following:

“The ancient knights’ quest for the grail, the alchemist’s search for the Stone of the Philosophers, all were part of the Great Work and are therefore endless. Success only opens up new avenues of brilliant possibility. Such a task is eternal and its joys without bounds; for the whole universe, and all its wonders… what is it but the infinite playground of the Crowned and Conquering Child, of the insatiable, the innocent, the ever-rejoicing heirs of the galaxy and eternity, whose name is Mankind?”

It struck me that this passage could easily be referencing the different but highly correlated value of both the Knight (Lion) and the Philosopher's (Magnus) pursuit.

Does anyone have any interactions between these two that could help illustrate the relationship between these two before Magnus fell?

As much as i've seen until now, there's no interaction between those two primarchs. Yet, as Magnus was actively tryng to uncover as many secret he could find, and as the Lion is the exact opposite, trying to hide and keeping secret... it would have been hardly good.

I'm just wondering if there might have been some opposites attract kind of respect like Fulgrim and Ferrus shared.

12 points · 8 days ago

Ferrus and Fulgrim considered themselves the same. Superficially they were completely different but they were the only two that truly understood each other.

Both were obsessed with competitive self improvement and being the best. They went about it very differently. Fulgrim would master any obstacle and Ferrus would demolish any obstacle but their end goals were the same.

That's why Fulgrim is always trying to achieve perfection while Ferrus is always trying to prove he's the strongest. Different journeys to the same goal of being the best.

Great commentary, that's interesting. I wonder if Magnus felt any similar kinship with the Lion that others wouldn't readily see.
