*** That's another term for Blanks right? In 40k Psykers go ''both'' ways. As in: He could be an anti-Psyker, and therefore resistant to Warp effects (though any Librarian in the Ultramarines wouldn't enjoy being near him at all). See Gunner Jurgen in the Literature/CiaphasCain series for an example of a higher-level Blank

[[folder:Chaos Sorcerers and Bloodletters]]



*** To add on: Khorne hates magic not because of magic itself, but because a large part of what magic does doesn't jive with his theme. As a Chaos manifestation of martial bloodletting, he would obviously see the advantages of magical teleporation/speed towards the enemy, daemon swords, and even possessed bolters and cannons, but he'll roar his discontent at a sorceror firing off a bolt of chaos literally out of nowhere instead of getting his hands dirty.

[[folder:Smart Orks]]



*** Orks get smarter the longer they live. Since Orks are eternally young, a Warboss could become very kunnin' given enough time and gitz ta fight.

Added DiffLines:

** Remember, this is also a game made by Relic. They've had Khornate Sorcerers in almost all of the Dawn of War series. Though, as everyone above has said, Khorne disapproves of Sorcery in the manner of using ''only'' Sorcery to fight. Using it to supplement/increase your effectiveness in combat? A-okay in his book.

** The population of a forge world would be brought up to literally worship technology. The weapon shrines would be like an Imperial church having the finger bone of a saint.

** In a non-guessing answer, the game offers no answer. Maybe a sequeal will tell us, maybe not.

** Probably a mix of both, although your average ork is smart enough to know to use giant guns rather than loot them (unless they have a [[MadScientist mekboy]] with them. Orks would never waste perfectly good Dakka unless they thought they could make even more Dakka out of what they wasted (and given [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve the way ork science works]] if they think they can they usually can).

* I was always under the impression that the orks acting smart (using big guns instead of looting them, etc) was because they were being manipulated by Chaos. Is that the case, or are they actually smart (see GeniusBruiser for the warboss)?

** You know, the whole 'Khorne never uses Sorcerers' thing is ''really stupid''. How do you summon Bloodletters otherwise? Wave a sharp stick around until they just pop out of the air? Besides, Nemeroth seems to follow Chaos Undivided, and they tend to be more fluid about those things.
