i thought up some necron fluff for my army the other day and here it is.... during the time that the ctan were devouring each other there was one ctan that so feared for his exsistance, he abandoned his physical body and took the body of a necron lord. the bodies of the necrons were never made to house the essence of a ctan and so he was trapped, unable to escape the prison he made for himself or use any of his powers. so now he leads his necron army in hopes that he will discover an artifact or weapon from one of the worlds he destroys that would allow him to break free... what do you think..?
lol i like it :w00t:, poor guy has to feel pretty stupid... plus could be a nifty idea to work into any campains your friends and you do!
I'm not sure how sound it is. It's usually very risky to play with anything of the magnitude of a C'tan. And don't forget, the C'tan have pretty much godhood over the physical. They can do pretty much anything they want. Their current state, in necrodemis, is really one of the better forms they can have, so they have it.
But having said that, it sounds alright. But the sheer power of the C'tan might require a rewrite.
ya, im pretty sure the necrodermis is just living metal being shaped by the c'tan... and the necrons are also made up of the living metal...
and the c'tain wouldnt go into the body of a necron lord, hed change the shape of the necrodermis to be the shape of a necron lord (or atleast, thats how id do it)...
so theres a bit to be worked out there, but other than that, its a good idea
What about if he was tricked by The Deceiver into becoming trapped as a Necron lord. That sounds like the sort of nasty thing The Deceiver would do.

Been here nearly 10 years and still haven't managed 500 posts.
well, if he goes into a lord, vs becoming one, than he will loose hes ctan like power, and become a really srong lord
if he is trapped like one, than he is still a ctan, just a different dermis, so he is still god like, since he will still have his slaves, army, and power
No he will now loose his power because he is somehow trapped in a lords boddy (impossible they have no psychic powers of any kind, only energy) he would still be as powerful maybe not as resilient. And even if trickedn as soon as the lord is destroyed he would be released and go back into the necrodermis

I like the idea.
To make it more plausible - considering the massive size of uncompressed C'tan. How about having the C'tan split into many different Lords and other entities in the universe.
The Lord grows stronger and stronger, more and more C'Tan with each part of essence that he claims back for himself. How about it?
i really like that idea. his sentience is trapped in a necron lord and the rest of the energy that makes him up is spread across the universe in various, unwitting hosts. i also like the idea of the deciever tricking him into his predicament. i'm thinking since ctan have such immense amounts of energy that make them up that his would be spread so thin across the universe that it would be virtualy impossible for him to gather enough of it to reclaim god status. this insures that i can play with this army for as long as i want without anyone questioning it...Originally Posted by Karmoon

It's cool. There could be different versions of him depending on the point cost of the army. Ranging from Just a lord to be taken @ 500pt games, to big beefy Almost C'tan levels.
See what you can do with it dude.
