On a somewhat unrelated note, it also should not lock Eldar wraithbone shift. No other faction loses their combustion gauge while silenced and no faction is more vulnerable to movement impediments than Eldar. Losing you special order and access to skills and all (good) weapons is bad enough. Eldar have it way worse than SM vs mass Slaanesh.

A simple fix would be to make master of sanctity ability grant immunity to effects like this.

Better yet make the ability test the targets morale. This would make Space marines completely immune to it, and other races could at least offset its effectiveness. If chief librarian has to deal with this limitation, then chaos, who could have multiple slaanesh ships will be fine.

Too unoriginal. Fear of Darkness works like it should lore-wise, and Promise of Slaanesh also works just like MoS should.
It works just fine in the way it does, disturbing the enemy crew and drowning them in temptation, preventing special abilities.

All it needs is some adjustments to prevent perma-locking. Some reasonable immunity after exiting the locked state would probably be the best solution to keep the skill useful, prevent cheese and force players to actually use the ability wisely.
The sentence below is true

The sentence above is false

Maybe make the duration based on morale then ;it would still work on space marines but they would break out of it much faster than say orks.

And seriously, it is broken compared to librarians ability. They can spam it from multiple ships while the librarian only gets one, and they get a morale reducing passive aura while the librarian has to spend crew points just to make his skill reliable.
