:o What do u think would happen if GamesWorkshop killed off the Emperor(which they won't)?
Since he is a metaphor for Jesus, he'd be reborn as the Star Child. etc.
Doubt if it will ever happen
yep, the Emperor will be reborn. So, in actuality he is immortal and cannot die, even though his body may.
If Wolves were meant to fly, wouldnâ€™t the Emperor have given them wings?
What if Abbadon just like, bit out his throat.
Or even better, then nail him to a stick and then he comes back three days later to prove hes special and then goes to...er... 'murderer' heaven...
That's tough... but that's exactly why I invented the USSR!
World Eaters - 2000pts
Dark Eldar - 2000pts
Imp. Guard - 2000pts, 270 men
According to the old Star Child fluff (which although apparently abandoned still makes a buttload of sense and I think a lot of people follow).
The corpse of the Emperor still has a few living cells in it, brain activity and his hear has stopped some time ago so medically he is dead but the few cells left alive are a tether of sorts connecting the Emperors soul to the reality plane. If for some reason the Stasis Field in the Golden Throne freaked out and shut down the Emperor would truely die and then his soul would immediately go into some newborn kid.
Then it would be a matter of growing up and getting to Terra, I think the power he had would make people take notice.
In fact I think there would be a major cover-up if the Emperor was to die... The iron-fist stability that has come to hold the Imperium together would collapse if some kid came forth and took control.. The Inquisition would lose their power... It would turn everything upside down...
If the Emperor was to die nobody would be told and this new kid would be hunted down and caught to serve the will of the Inquisition and the High Lords of Terra...
I think that if the emperor came back as the star child then there'd be a repaet of the horus heresy. Imagine different fractions of the inquisition fighting. Imperial Guard and Space Marine chapters fighting. Not everybody's going to believe a kid who claims to be the emperor!
I adopted a cute lil' cow fetus
from Fetusmart! Hooray fetus! </a>
I think if he would be the Emperor people would believe him, I doubt the Inquisition would capture him and use him when he could knock out Primarchs with one punch and could probabaly throw a Baneblade a few miles for fun.
It would just be the matter of showing that the meatbag on the Thron is indeed dead as hell....
