Summary

While voyaging through the depths of the warp, the infamous blademaster Lucius the Eternal is challenged by a servant of another god - a champion of the old Death Guard Legion, no less. Keen to remain dominant over his preening and ambitious rivals in the Cohors Nasicae, Lucius takes up his sword without a second thought...but could an unfeeling daemonhost of Nurgle, or the voices inside his own head, be the undoing of his Slaaneshi curse?

A solid short duel between Chaos factions.

Check out Lords of Silence and Fabius Bile: Primogenitor for more nuanced explorations of Nurgle and Slaanesh.

Good short story / minor nit picks

Enjoyed the story and energy the narrator put forth but the background effects at times were too in the face at times washing over the narrator and taking me out of the experience. Overall not terrible for what was spent.
