>The exact nature of the Terminus Decree is unknown as it's very existance in known to only a single soul in all the galaxy, yet rumors abound as to it's ultimate purpose.

>Some believe that it will sommun forth some ancient and terrible force to battle and defeat the enemies of mankind. Others think it will purge the warp of the Chaos Gods and their minions, and bring about a new age for mankind, free of their deamonic influence.

>Still others beleive that once read aloud by the Supreme Grand Master, it will perform its rite and bring to a halt the ancient and arcane machinations of the Golden Throne, ceasing their living-giving support of the Emperor's long dead body and freeing his soul to be reborn anew. (This is the most "likely" theory as it is said that the golden seal which rests upon the box containing the decree is but one of a matched pair, its partner found only in one place: On the Emperor's Golden Throne).

I thought the Terminus Decree fluff existed before Ward got his hands on the Knights. Could have sworn I read about it in an older version of the codex. Could be wrong, though...

That's the Golden Throne's "off" switch.

Upon activation it's a race between the fall of mankind and a reincarnated Emperor saving it.

>> No.16759645

It provides incontrovertible proof that the Emperor actually died 10,000 years ago in battle with Horus.

Revealing this will either crush the hopes of Man and plunge the Imperium into anarchy, or will free humanity from millennia of superstition so that they may form a glorious new galactic order.

>existance is known to only a single soul in all the galaxy

>Rumors abound

How can there be rumors about something that only one dude knows exists? I mean it's not even rumors about whether it might exist, but what its purpose is. That's stupid as hell.

>> No.16759681

>>16759645
Sorry, but the Imperial Creed is so entrenched in imperial culture that any huge shock will send humanity spiraling into chaos and civil war.

Because in 40k, the ultimate battle for the salvation of the human race and the galaxy was fought 10,000 years ago, and lost.

You can't have rumors abound about something no one knows exists.

>The exact nature of the Terminus Decree is unknown as it's very existance in known to only a single soul in all the galaxy, yet rumors abound as to it's ultimate purpose.

Rumors can't abound about something, the very existence there of is known to only one. It didn't say that its purpose is known to only one, but that its existence is known to only one.

ftfy

>> No.16760002

That's only because Creed used his tactical genius to hide some of his own tactical genius in Draigo.

If Creed ever really needs it, it'll come back in whatever way his enemies least expect.

>> No.16760015

>>16759952

is that because he cut out Creed's heart and ate it, in a demonic ritual to gain his victim's cunning?

>> No.16760035

If Draigo ever turns against the Imperium, it will deploy from within his torso and drown him in his own blood.

But nothing Grey Knights do can be daemonic, because the book says they can perform any sorceries without being tainted by the daemonic like usually happens when someone tries that stuff.
