"Long before your ancestor species evolved from its protoplasm, we tore our Gods' hearts out and sacrificed them upon the plinths of our vengeance. We will do the same to yours."
Alright folks, I’ve wanted to talk about my Necron Tombworld since, like, forever, so here it goes!
The Necron Dynasty is Astekh’n, which is kind of just a placeholder name for right now. I want to explore ancient cultures that utilized pyramids other than just Egyptian, and South America immediately came to mind. However, I might be looking into some SE Asian cultures as well. The Terracotta Army, perhaps.
I know it wasn’t always the most popular of new lore, but I’ve always liked the idea that some of the Necron’tyr rebelled against the C’tan, and that they must also have a negative opinion of the gods of other races, considering their war with the Eldar. As such, I see this dynasty having a bit of a god-killer complex. Gods, false or otherwise, are to blame for the galaxy’s woes. The Chaos Gods thirst for all and the upstart humans dare to claim our ancient domains in the name of their god-king.
Damage sustained during sleep can turn this into a true obsession, something they are mentally unable to deviate from, even if in all other matters they have their full faculties. I’m certainly not suggesting they actually succeed in any way in their given task, no gods of the setting will fall to the Astekh’n Dynasty. Just that they have a particular feud with any of the setting’s faiths, and will make every effort to destroy shrines and icons.
Basically xenos Imperial Heralds, if anyone’s familiar with the Word Bearers’ original formation.
I'm still trying to wrap my head around how the Necron hierarchies work, but I like the idea of using Aztec gods and modifying them to be Necrony. Right now, i have Phaeron Mykhtlan the Everborn, the Crypteks Khotl and Ikhel, and Praetorian Tlalokh.
As you can see, it's not much more than a core idea. Its history and character needs work, but what do you guys think of it so far?
