-on the first page of the 40k rulebook very faint behind the text you can make out a picture of the emperor on the golden throne. that's really awesome i had never seen that before. he looks like a skeleton or something, you can see a skull and ribs all covered in technology, and a big chair "the throne" behind his head there is energy or lightning flowing out, either that or he's constantly having a very bad hairday. i have a few question regarding this.
1.has anyone else seen this before, it's fairly obvious but many people skip the first few pages/fluff in general.
2.a related fluff question, can the emperor actually comunicate with the lords of the imperium, or even his guard. it seems that he can't because otherwise people would be getting "orders from the emperor" all the time, and the cult imperialis wouldn't exist since he didn't like being worshiped as a god. however, being almost god-like in psychic power, you would think he would be able to send his thoughts into others. also he is able to conduct complex psychic rituals where he binds his soul to others, but he cannot comunicate his basic wishes to them?
Dealing with the Emperor communicating with those around him...
It's my understanding that he could, for a while at least. However, as he spent more and more time upon the golden toilet, his mind began to break and crack, and he just sort of started gibbering and bubbling a bit.
So, now, they deal with a deck of cards instead. Much less likely to drool on your shoulder while you whispered your question.

In the 3rd edition rulebook, theres a full page picture of the golden throne
Life is too serious to be taken seriously
As fox and ozzfan have said its in the 3rd edition rulebook minus the writing over it. I never really liked the picture. But thats just me. See if you can get a BBB and its on the first few pages.........
