I would like to point out that the Eldar Gods were once psychic constructs created by the Eldar as weapons against the C'tan and the Necrons.

When the Old Ones started dying out and became short of number, they couldn't guide the Eldar in controlling these weapons. The weapons evolved in the Warp Gods and took control of their creators.

What I am going with this is that the Emperor could evolve into a Warp God since his origin is more or less similar to the Eldar Gods.

>>28602051Basically a couple of things happen if and when Big-E dies
1) DAEMONS DEAMONS DAMONS. The Emperor dies and Terra is plunged into chaos because he's no longer protecting is and pacifying the warp. Daemons fall imperium dies off till all their planets loose contact with eachother and there are so few humans left that chaos withers and becomes stable. As per prediction of Alpharius

2) British Mustache of gods is a-go. The Big-E decends into the warp and simply overpoweres Chaos pacifying is leading mankind into a new golden age. Freedom from the Warp the Emps ( now an actual God) Takes mankind into a state of false peace where he guides mankind in a very close and limiting way. Emperor falls daemons die. Sceintific advancment is started up again, mankind conqures the Galaxy and wants to expand to other galaxies. The Emperor cannnot go there as he is tied to the warp in this Galaxy. As more dependence on the warp is severed the Emperor grows weaker.

Cue second Dark Age of Technology as Big-E is no longer able to spoon feed Humanity anymore. Chaos begins to grow and the Emperor exists only as a shadow of his formerself.

Basically a pendulum effect of Emperor and Chaos starts to happen around 50k

IIRC, DAoT humanity had functioning cloning tech, but it was mostly lost in the Age of Strife. Current humanity have cloning tech, but it's absolutely crap and they have less than half an idea of how it works. It's sometimes used to clone Space Marines from retrieved gene-seeds, but it can backfire horribly.

>His limbs removed, the third blank was grafted to Epimetheus’s back, one last failsafe should the emasculated Grey Knight slip his bonds and attempt to escape. The man was barely alive, the dull eyes set below a heavy brow barely open, and tubes protruded from holes bored in his torso through which flowed dark liquids, sustaining his hellish existence.

>Abaddon drew close to his captive, causing both Epimetheus and the symbiotic blank to flinch. The Grey Knight’s nostrils flared. Despite being deprived of most of his senses, he could tell that the Warmaster was near.

>Leaning in close to his prisoner’s ear, Abaddon whispered, ‘Soon, Epimetheus. Soon.’

>The breath being forced from Epimetheus’s nose became grunts, and he pulled and twisted more forcefully at his bonds causing the blank joined to him to murmur a plaintive wail.

>Exiting the cell, the Warmaster left the Grey Knight to struggle against his restraints, safe in the knowledge that he would never be able to break them no matter how long he hung there.

>Abaddon had waited ten thousand years to depose the Corpse-Emperor and claim the Throne of Terra. To break one of the founding brothers of the Grey Knights, to have him bend his knee in unswerving allegiance, the Warmaster could wait for all eternity.

It's actually not that super anti-demon.

They can be possessed, but it's very rare for it to occur. Only 1% of the Exorcists suffer some sort of Daemonic infestation after the initiation has been completed. And even then, only the really powerful Daemons can even perceive them. That's what having a pure, noble, incorruptible spirit nets you.

Fucking pussies is what they are. Seriously, their exorcisms are lame as hell.

And they still don't ace that shit every time.

The codex has one confirmed battle, and two possibles (it's not clear whether he actually fought M'kachen or N'kari).

>Atop the Blood Falls, where the acrid ichor of Khorne’s fallen champions tumbles endlessly into the void, Draigo slew the great Bloodthirster Kar’voth. With cleansing fire he drove daemonic taint from the beast’s great axe, and used the molten remains to reforge his sword, sundered in battle with M’kar the Reborn so long ago.

>At the gates of the Inevitable City, the Lord of Change M’kachen offered Draigo a path homewards, but in reply the Grey Knight smote the city walls and left the bird-Daemon entombed amongst the ruins.

>However, the mortal world was not yet done with Lord Draigo. When the Prophet of Jostero forged an alliance with the Daemon N’kari, he drew a portion of the Realm of Chaos into the mortal world, and Draigo was drawn through along with it. So was Draigo briefly reunited with his Chapter, for a Brotherhood had arrived on Jostero to combat N’kari’s threat. Draigo was clearly long adrift in time, for he knew these warriors not, yet they embraced him as brother, and fighting side-by-side they cast down the mad Prophet of Jostero and banished his daemonic allies.

In WD376 (Grey Knight release) he banished Fateweaver in the battle report, and I believe the 6th edition rulebook has him banish Fateweaver again after popping out of the Warp before he went in.

Lion El'Jonson

- Presumably dead, dealt with and expunged from the Imperial records under unknown circumstances long before the Horus Heresy.

- Currently a Daemon Prince of Slaanesh.

- Holed up with his traitor legion in an ever growing fortress on the Daemon World Mendrengard waiting for the Imperial Fists to strike back

Jaghatai Khan.
- Lost in the Maelstrom while hunting the Dark Eldar.

Leman Russ
- Lost in the Eye of Terror presumably searching for the Tree of Life.

Rogal Dorn
- Dead, his skeleton preserved in amber with each of his skeletal fists preserved in two separate shrines. Conflicting accounts draw many of the details of his death into question.

Konrad Kurze
- Killed by an Imperial Assassin inf fulfillment of the very prophetic vision that prompted him to rebel against what he saw as the Imperium's corruption.

- Slayed by Horus during the Horus Heresy. Presumably his noble half manifests as the winged warp entity known only as the Sanguinor with his darker side manifesting as the Black Rage and Red Thirst which plagues the bearers of his gene seed.

>> No.28634317


Ferrus Manus
- Dead, decapitated by the traitor Fulgrim. Though some argue his body was recovered and repaired on Mars where it remains waiting until the day it will be reunited with his chapter.

(Eleventh Primarch)
- Presumably dead, dealt with and expunged from the Imperial records under unknown circumstances long before the Horus Heresy.

- Daemon Prince of Khorne.

Roboute Guilliman
- Dead, killed by the traitor Fulgrim, his body perfectly preserved in a stasis field, some saying that the mortal wound that fell him is slowly healing itself slowly over the millennia.

- Daemon Prince of Nurgle.

Magnus the Red
- Daemon Prince of Tzeentch

- Dead, his very soul wiped from existence by the Emperor himself. His legacy continued by his alleged clone Abaddon.

Lorgar Aurelian
- Daemon Prince of Chaos Undivided, holed up in isolated meditation on the Daemon World Sicarus.

- Disappeared allegedly three millennia after the Horus Heresy leaving behind a tome listing 9 sacred artifacts spread throughout the Galaxy for his Sons to find. It is said when all 9 are found he will return.

Corvus Corax
- Set out to the Eye of Terror seeking absolution for his sins.

Alpharius & Omegon
- Omegon was slain by Roboute Guilliman while Alpharius continues to serve till this day as an agent of Chaos Undivided seeking to prove himself the superior stragiegan by challenging Guilliman's chapters.
