It's such an obvious line, it seems like it must MUST be from something. Just not something I've seen, read or played.

I think this is gonna be longer than the Raege one, but sporadic. We haven't seen the last of Raege snippets, either.

In case it wasn't been answered. The line is from Paradise Lost. It's Satan's attempts to rationalize why it's so much better for him to be ruling Hell.

This is still one of my most favorite quotes from this entire series, Paradise Lost or not! It gives it a new spin with Raege that gives me shivers :)

Culexus' shading has really improved. Adds a lot of depth to the characters. The patchy beard on Yellow Hoodie makes him look like a teenager, or Egoraptor or something, and Minhelm's face really looks like she's been smeared in dust and grease. And, of course, looking forward to more of his storytelling which is always god-tier.

I had not noticed that he looks like egoraptor, but I totally see what you mean. I can imagine him sounding like that, too.

Oh, the shit she must've been through.
And not by modern standards, I'm talking Imperium standards here.
From what I'm able to gather, the conditions on most worlds the Imperium (BY SOME FUCKING MIRACLE MANAGED TO KEEP) are hellholes at the top and damned near unthinkable near the bottom.

Mordia is meant to be a place of long lines, capsule has, food riots and gang wars just on the surface.

The iron guard aren't just the tithed army, they're also the local peace keepers.

Given the context of 40K the Milton quote is especially strong.  Considering everywhere in the Imperium you turn you're being told to bow down and not think, most people that have an ounce of individuality probably rebel against the system to the best of their power.  This in turn results in thinks like Chaos ideas sneaking through a society and rotting the guts out of it, eventually turning people who think like this into so much daemon chow.  A bit ironic....... especially since the original quoters were basically the lords of hell anyways and didn't necessarily suffer overmuch there or even have the potential to, but everyone else who apes the quote certainly isn't immune to the consequences.  I've used this line so much in Black Crusade that it must echo in my GM's skull at night, and you know what?  It works so well it's embarrassing.  Then occasionally you run into someone like Minhelm who knows the line is bull..... neither option is a good one, it's not an either-or proposition despite framing the idea like that.  You can rule a nightmare or serve an insane megalomaniac, but both ends of that spectrum are not so good for you in the end.  Serving is a lot more comfortable on the sanity though.
