    Pretty nice, but the treeview doesn't show all options on one sight. You have to scroll a lot pretty fast. In total its a valuable tool for sure, just not as comfortable as others.

    Actually no. Slaanesh is the god of desire, lust and pleasure. Sex and perversions are just one manifestation of that. But all kind of desires are meant.
