How many years will it take for humanity to be completely composed of psykers?

Btw: ITT: Psyker image dump.

Assuming the status quo holds? Never. The high fatality rate of psykers keeps them from breeding true for any length. The mutation regularly crops up, but so long as they keep those with a recessive psyker gene or none whatsoever breeding and feeding manifesting psykers into a meat grinder, they'll stay a minority.

>> No.12170003

Not happening. Most worlds tend to be purged if they get above 3 in 1000000 people being psychers(the Blood Ravens killed off one of their recruiting worlds because of this).

If 40k timeline advanced at all, it would happen soon.

5th edition rulebook says that the entire human race is turning into psykers, and that this change has been tens of thousands of years in the making. Eventually it would be hard to keep the Imperium going because "No Sister, you are the witches".

Well, they did get mentioned in the core rulebook, however breifly

Imperium has been systematically culling psykers out of the gene pool to feed the golden throne. Vast majority of anyone with even the slightest inclination towards psyker gets thrown into the furnace so that their psychic pain screams can light the lighthouse.

If anything, becoming a psyker should becomming more and more rare.

>> No.12170120


Blood Ravens are also mentioned in the Blood Angels codex, as a Chapter which shares some iconography with them but does not claim succession.

>> No.12170130

So humanity's doom will be no more psykers?

What's happenin', Scruffy?

Did someone say psykers?

>> No.12170180


That's the logical conclusion, but is contrary to what the rulebook says.

Since 40k is about as scientific as Dr.Who, I suspects that the psyker gene, if it exists at all, the ability might be pure magic unlike being a Pariah which needs a gene, appears spontaneously.

Mass awakenings of psykers like The Night of a Thousand Rebellions become more common further in the timeline, this does not indicate that suppression of psykers culls their numbers at all.

>> No.12170196

Also in the Thousand Sons book

>> No.12170204

The psyker mutation among humanity is becoming increasingly common, presaging the emergence of a new, psychic race. Psykers represent humanity's future, the ideal creature into which mankind will evolve, a more powerful, intelligent and capable life form. This new race is still weak, its members lacking the mental strength needed to resist the dangers of the warp. They are both a threat and a boon to the Imperium. - Lexicanum

>> No.12170254

The psychic gene is not genetic its a mutation caused my warp. so More and more Psycers poping up, I think means that humanity is just becoming more susceptible to the mutation.

>> No.12170284

All hail the master race! Give praise to the mightiest among their ranks!

>> No.12170310

In A Thousand Sons they pretty much said the Blood Ravens were a successor chapter of the Thousand Sons.

Somehow their chapter master fell to a Nurgle deamon though, go figure.

Where we're going, you don't need eyes to see...

>> No.12170347

It's more that the warp has become increasingly active since the fall of the eldar started. More warp bullshit=more mutation=more psykers.

>> No.12170359


so basically we are evolving into a new type of eldar ?

>> No.12170374

Apparently it will take a lot more than 38000 years, since most psykers are killed or are emprah chow.

Hello, my non-pointy eared cousins...

Basically yes, except we're still going to be human.

Eldar aren't just super-psychic humans. Their biology is radically different.

Not to mention the Black Legion being involved

>> No.12170453


well I was referring psychically wise than so yeah

but it would be a pain to tame the warp powers and prevent every single new human with psyker like powers not to be devoured by Chaos gods.

I expect the Pariahs to go one way and the Psykers to go the other. Heaven or hell, let's rock.

Please explain.

Not that radically different. Humans can breed with eldar.

I've heard that if you drop a colony on a world, it might cause everyone else to develop psychic powers.

Our glorious God Emperor is a sand nigger(Anatolian), not a native of the Americas. You're thinking of the preheresy dark Angels. Who were somehow Arthurian limeys and red skins 0_o

I feel that the WH40k universe is moving inexorably toward having the Imperium fall and being replaced with a psyker run government.

I know he's supposed to be Anatolian.

Doesn't change the fact that he looks like an injun in a golden can.

Pre-Heresy Dark Angels were space versions of the Knights Templar. A crusading order that protected the people from the "Chaos beasts" that surrounded them, while steeped in mystery and symbolism.

Post-Heresy, after Caliban got blowed up, ONE of the many worlds they recruited from was a Native American reservation world.

In the evermore slightly grimdark age of the 666'thM mankind has become a glorious psyker race. However despite greater resistance to possession, the Psykana Republic still faces constant warp incursion. As well as political warfare.

It was the only world they were recruiting from at the time but the genestealer infestation taught them better. So now the recruit from lots of worlds.
