Nephem Goldtongue - Chaos Dwarf Bard of Slaanesh - Matev
Air around him is suffused with a musk. Usually wears lighter armorunderneath violet and silver silken clothing. A cherubic mask covers his face, excepting the horns sharply protruding from his forehead, just before the curly brown hair tufts from his sca

Level 1 – Acquiescence
The caster reaches out and touches the victim’s forehead. The victim immediately enters a blissful, euphoric state for the remainder of the battle. All characteristics are halved. On each turn roll a D6, 1-3 the target is unable to do anything but stand and smile mindlessly, 4-6 the target can act but is subject to stupidity.
Special effect on servants of Slaanesh. Target is filled with a sense of well-being and a reassuring air of unreality. It becomes immune to psychology but Initiative is reduced by 2.
Special effect on servants of Khorne. Victim’s personality is subjected to an unwelcome but ecstatic pitch of voluptuous enjoyment, His nervous system cracks under the strain and his mind boils. Staggers in a random direction and collapses and dies of uncontrollable delight.
Level 2 – Pavane of Slaanesh:
Cast at a group of four or more creatures not involved in hand to hand. The victims can do nothing but dance lewdly to the sound of unearthly music that only they can hear. Any attack on the unit will break the spell.

Many were his days spent with slaves and variety of instruments to entertainment, with breaks only for contemplation of perfectly cut gems and feasts that would put high lords to shame.
Eventually, when given the choice of having to make something of himself or being cast out, Nephem chose to leave, but only he’d left his former companions and family cavorting until they died from exhaustion or bliss.
He traveled the highways and biways, using his skill with instruments to make sure he always had food in his belly, and someone begging him to stay one more night. He left strings of escalating parties in his wake, gathering to him a small group of loyal followers. He trudged towards the Chaos Wastes. There, he heard, he would find everything he wanted out life and more…..
