i read somewhere in another thread that there were factions within the Imperium working to revive the Emperor - even though it is still very very far from completion no doubt
just wondering what you guys have to say about that, wether its true, can/cant be done, and whats gained from it if so
ive always wondered what would happen if he was revived. i personally, think he should be put in some kind of ultimate dreadnought kinda thing or maybe an Emperor class titan? :p that would be fun lol, :yes:
anyway, hope its not a dumb Topic to post
In the name of the Emperor and for the Glory of the Imperium... Gimme Back My Girlfriend! :(
The point is, from the perspective of all the Administration on Terra he is far more valuable dead than alive...easier to control people.
But I digress. I'm sure there are people working in secret for ways to revive the Emperor to his full state, but if he was revived I'm sure they would do more than stick him in a Dreadnought(or a Titan for that matter). Also many people have claimed to be the Emperor incarnate, but have been hunted down by the Inquisition and proved false.
That's another thing, even if he were revived no one would believe him. It would be a giant "Ya right" scenario, and then what would the Imperium do. One more thing I've heard is that for the Emperor to be brought back to life he has to die completely, in other words be disconnected from the Astro, and the Throne. <<This makes sense if you read on Wiki how the Emperor, as a being, came to be.

Oh, I am the Emporer, yeah I know, pretty awesome isn't it? Is that foot steps I hear? *Inquisiton, drop to your knees Heretic!* Ahhhh! Run! The Inquisition is after me.
Now for the fun stuff, it would be pretty cool to run a scenario where the radicals have to beat back the Custodes to reach the Golden Throne (a box) and revive him before a set limit of turns goes up. That would be cool, and if your good at this sorta stuff model the Emperor on a stone tablet and encased by glass or resin, that would be soooo sweet, now where is that eBay listing for Ronin minis...
PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD LOOK AT MY BLOG!
Rep people if they help you!!!
*Grabs his defibillators* Everybody clear! im gonna shock this puppy up!
There are many theories speculating on how to bring the emporer back to life. But the only cult I've heard of actually trying to do so is the Star Child cult, and it dosent sound like they are getting any headway

Probably not worth the effort in doing really, I mean what you have to consider is that the Emperor has been sat in the exact same place for over 10,000 years, It would not be surprising if you where to move him that his body would simply just break apart into dust. Anyway, even if you did wake him up you would still have to help wake up his muscles otherwise he would generally be the same. Also afterwards he would be walking around again and as other people have said could the Imperium actually accept that the Emperor has re-awoken to lead them into glory. So another 20 Lunatics and Megalomaniacs raise their hand also claim to be the wise and powerful emperor and before you know it, the Imperium has broken itself down into more sides than it did with the Horus Heresy.
Awaking the Emperor is like bringing the C'tan Outsider into the Warhammer Galaxy, or awaking the Dragon back from its sleep on mars, or Chaos bringing the Blood God into the Galaxy or any chaos god. They are just things that are not meant to happen within the Galaxy because it would generally mess the entire lore up and well.. If the Emperor woke back up and Games Workshop brought out the model, how many times shall Heretics have to kill the Emperor?
I believe I'm the one who implied there were factions trying to revive the Emperor.
My sources are the Inquisitor Rulebook and Inquisitor: The Thorians, both of which can be downloaded free from GWs specialist games website (I'd give you a link but I'm doing a sneaky forum check at work.)
Firstly, the Inquisitor book opens with a little narrative of the founding of the Inquisition. Four powerful people in the Imperial hierarchy got together and realized that the Emperor was fully healed of the wounds he'd suffered from Horus. Two of them thought 'wow, he can be revived!', while the others feared that the Emperor's rebirth might bring social destablization. They went their separate ways, gathered their disciples and friends and started working on their own particular schemes, but they kept some kind of ties to one another, and thus the Inquisition was born. One of the two 'radical' Inquisitiors who wanted the Emperor restored was later killed by the others for falling to Chaos.
Essentially the whole 'puritan'/'radical' thing stems from differing attitudes towards the Emperor's resurrection, although nowadays most radicals don't really think about it much (and some puritans do, Thorians for example.)
There's a brief poke at the old Star Child fluff too.. At one point the 'cult of the Star Child' is described as a malignant cult which was exterminated by the Ordo Hereticus.
The Thorian book adds even more Inquisitorial fun by describing an extreme Thorian faction called the Revivicators. Revivicators spend their lives studying the workings of the golden throne (noone in the Imperium understands how it works) in the hope of one day reinserting the Emperor's soul into his body. They're more than a little odd, and do lots of spooky death experiments to try and determine what happens to the soul after death. They tend to apply what they learn to themselves, as well, so they live obscenely long lives by human standards.
But yeah.. Still a long way off.. The basic problem is that noone understands how the throne works, and also, noone can predict what would happen. What if some uber big-ass daemon came back in the Emperor's body? What if the Astronomicon shut down? What if the Emperor had gone crazy over the millenia? Not all the possibilities are good.
Like many posters have stated, reviving the Emperor would be a death-blow to other factions in the 40k universe, much like if the Chaos Gods were to fully materialize outside the Warp, Kaela Mensha Khaine's avatars being melded into his original form, etc etc and so on and so forth. The prospectus of the idea is very interesting though, fluff-wise at least.
The new coming of Emperor would no doubt hinge on how to bring him back to his full power. We all know that psykers are sacrificed every day to the Golden Throne in order to keep the Emperor on the verge of life and death (the very nicely phrased "veggie" state) in order to keep his undying image and his role as a giant psychic battery, for the Astronomican for example. Fully reviving him would at least need a tremendous amount of sacrifice, those Black Ships would have to work overtime! Also, needless to say that the Emperor's battered husk of a body would also have to be restored or at least cased into something that will make it functionnal, like many have stated the usage of a dreadnought or titan. Personnally, I think his "holy" image would be better portrayed if he came back as a Living Saint, much like Saint Celestine of the Battle Sisters. But hey, the whole "angel of the Imperium" thing is still hazy, so we can all speculate :shifty:.
What do Khorne Berzerkers say to Necrons after chopping some of their bits off? "BLOOD FOR... Eh? Come on! You just take the fun out of it... Scream! Yell! Awww... not even a trace of guts..." *sniffles and kicks dirt*
