Ok I was just thinking about this yesterday, what would happen if the emperor were to come back to the imperium IE. he suddenly leaves the golden throne or is reborn in another person. What do u think he would do and how do you think the elements of the 40k universe would react to it?
I have often thought about this and my theory goes as follows:-
Leman Russ, primarch of the space wolves returns from his quest to find the seeds to the tree of life (that will heal the Emperor).
He then 'feeds' them to the emporer and for the first time in 10,000 years he awakens.
The Emperor then proceeds to gather as many primarchs as he can, with the seeds he heals Roboute Guilliman of the ultramarines.
The Emperor, Russ, and Guilliman then head for the dark angels monastary so the Emperor can heal Lion el johnson.
With these primarchs they lead a second crusade and the imperium becomes as heretic-free as it could.
They then hunt for the other lost primarchs.....
and...errr...thats as far as I have got so what do you think?

You missed the part where he kills most of the administrsomething for changing things from what he actually wanted, makes people stop worshiping him and all the other things. Heck it says right in the Inquisitor rule book (cant remember which) but they could have revived him less than a year after his was put in the golden throne but didnâ€™t because it would render the astronomicon useless and the people in power after he 'died' didnâ€™t want to lose it.
If heâ€™s reborn into a new body he'll need to start a new crusade to uncorrupt the Imperium from the imperials, not heretics, the Imperium choose who and what was heresy, not the emperor.

There would no doubt be a second schism, and the galaxy would tear itself apart. People just wouldn't believe the Emperor had returned. Not to mention the High Lords and the Eclesiarchy being pretty hacked off at losing their power.
I don't think the Astronomican would stop working though, after all, it was running throughout the Great Crusade wasn't it?
No, warp travel was more dangerous but still possabile, but with the Emperor alive he could affect it. He is a Chaos God (well, powerful warp entity anyway).Originally Posted by Perturabo_The_Great

Ok, thanks for clearing that up, I wasn't 100% sure anyway.No, warp travel was more dangerous but still possabile, but with the emporer alive he could affect it. He is a Choas God (well, powerful warp entity anyway).
On topic, I remember reading the old Star Child fluff, which states that the Emperor could be reborn if his body was allowes to die, but that's defunct now, I'm afraid.
Outsider, your post about resurrecting/healing the Primarchs got me thinking, does anyone know what actually happened to Sanguinius' body? I know it was carried back to Earth, and I assume it's on Baal in a shrine, but does anything say specifically what happened?
I didnâ€™t think that the fluff ever really clarified what exactly happened to Sanguinius' body. The fact of the matter is that the background isnâ€™t really clear about anything that happened after the Emperors battle with Horus. All that we know for sure is that Rogal Dorn found Sanguinius' dead body and the emperor near death. It just says that Dorn took the Emperors body back to earth to be interred in the golden throne. No where does it say what happened to Sanguinius' body. He might have just left him on the ship. It doesnâ€™t even say if there was any other survivors from the boarding party besides Dorn himself.

I think the Emperor would be disgusted with what the Imperium has become and turn to chaos. Then of course he would naturally start tearing the Imperium apart.
If he was reborn as another person, he'd be deemed a heretic and killed. For example, the Thorians believe the Emperor can and will be reborn, other sects of the inquisition try and kill the person who might be the Emperor reborn.
I can read now!
There would of course be huge scism in the Imperium and the Emperor would come out triumphant (being the emperor and all) but it would take a while. After that he would of course resume his crusade destroying everything in his wake... The living loyalist primarchs would return and follow him of course, just adding more fuel to the unstoppable train the Imperium would become. All would die before him, just like it was before. I suppose at some point there would be no enemies left except inside the eye of terror and outside the galaxy itself (along witht he eldar hiding out and watching events unfold). Then a huge war between chaos and the new Imperium would begin (similar to the great war that put him in the chair to begin with). Of course the Emperor would have to devise some manner to effectively invade the eye. Abaddon would pull out all his tricks, the chaos Primarchs would get off their arses and fight, it would truly be a monumental battle... *drools at the thought*
Of course this will never happen.
1. GW will never let it happen, as I mentioned, with all these unavoidable events and the Emperor counquering all and what not, it wouldn't be a fun game anymore.
2. Fluff wise, the Emperor can't get up. Even he can't survive the blows Horus dealt to him, the only thing keeping him alive is the throne (that and his iron will of course). There is only the story of him dying and being re-born, or the one from the Draco Inquisition Wars novels, which is similar.
My theory goes like this -
The Emperor would awake, and be driven insane by all the torturous years spent in the golden throne. He woul smite all the Custodes and a large portion of holy Terra. After that he would go a massive crusade against all mankind for not listening to his word, and keeping him locked up for so long. He WOULD NOT ally with the other so called "Loyalist" Primarcs because it was they who btrayed him during the heresy and not the chaos marines, although he only learned this when it was too late(He was told of the loyalists betrayal by Horus on the battle barge, right before Rogal Dorn found them).
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it:tongue:
