As I was reading through the old 40k rulebook the other day I noticed in the section about the Emperor of man that he had extreme psycic (SP?) powers.
So my question is, how come he was unable to see that he would be mortally wounded in battle with Horus. If he's able to decide where to send his fleets and armies because of premonitions about enemy movements why couldn't he avoid being struck down by Horus and he'd be free to run around commanding the Space Marines still and basically kicking ass!
Am I right or is there something I've missed??
I think if he didn't fight horus, Horus would just go on raping everything else. Shortly after he died, I think he was also killed, either by wounds or another primarch. Either way, Horus needed to die, even if the emperor was to die.
For if one gave, he dared assert
He knew that man was repentant
For many a man is so hard of heart
He cannot weep even though he suffers sorely
Couldn't he just send his hordes of Space Marines and Imperial guard after Horus to destroy him, as is the case with most of the Chaos lords nowadays?
But Horus had several Traitor Legions with him, as well as shitload of daemons. How can you expect them to deal with THAT?
When you talk about why he could not use hit powers to know what happens I think it says somewhere that everything after the siege on the castle was unknown to him... let me check one second... Yes it does say that he could not see the future after the attack. I had a quote here but realized that it was copyrighted so I deleted it.
So I guess he could not see what was going to happen so he could not be uber neo super reflexes man. Also only three legions stood beside him and many more were attacking. He could not spare a man so he had to do it himself.

If he did know what was going to happon, I'm sure he did it for the good of mankind. He sacrificed himself so that the seige would not be lost. Just think what would have happond if he didnt teleport and win the battle.
A Promise to a dead man means nothing.
as someone said before i dont tink he was able to see past that point, but even if he could, horus still needed to be defeated. the emporer was the one who took the initive and beamed aboud horus's space craft.
