    Souls

    A lot of people and aliens die in the 40K universe, but what happens when they die? If they are killed by a follower of the dark gods does their soul get sent to them? Or does it just 'drift' through the warp. What if you are just killed, do you go to 'heaven', 'hell'?


    Its been eating me from the inside.... All the killings that my berzerkers are commiting may be in vain:cry: . I was just wondering if anyone would be able to help me. Thanks in advance

    P.S I wasn't sure if this counted as a simple fluff question or not and decided to post it in this section instead of the fluffmasters section.

    Sorry mudvayne_lover, "No one who died in HIS service died in vain." The souls of the guardsmen you kill are dedecated to the Immortal Emperor, your foul master cannot have them.

    Actually.. I believe you're both wrong..

    Human souls cannot survive death at all.. Without a body, they are scattered by the roiling chaos of the warp and just merge into the background sea of energy.

    Only Eldar (and perhaps the Emperor.. perhaps..) possess the psychic integrity to exist without their physical bodies.

    The act of killing itself is what empowers Khorne.. It's not that he recieves the souls of those killed by his champions, so much as, by killing in his service, they empower him.

    I believe it's different in fantasy, as in fantasy, people actually have 'souls' in the conventional sense, rather than merely echoes of their being being projected into an alternate dimension.

    What if a certain daemon, like M'Kachen(sp?), or chaos god wanted someones soul? They could just pluck it out of the warp, right?

    Only while it was still in a body. And even then it wouldn't last long, I doubt a human soul is any more satisfying than a pastry vol-au-vent; it's itty and bitty and scatters everywhere when you try to eat it.
