How does it all end? Will the star child be reborn? Everyone is eaten by nids? Armless Abaddon destroys Terra? Discuss

>>44737787
Emperor wakes up, sees how severely everyone fucked up the Imperium during his 10,000 year nap, says "fuck this shit" and kills everything with mind bullets. Chaos wins.
>>
>>44737787
Chaos rips the universe into multiple dimensions each with their own settings and then the game becomes even more expensive as well as points stop mattering, so everybody switches to Mantic shit again.
>>
>>44737787
GW goes out of business, and the 40k world is left without a concrete ending. All stagnates. Nothing moves.
So, Nurgle wins.
>>
>>44737931
I can see this happening
>>
>>44737994
Is it bad that I kind of WANT it to happen?
>>
Rowboat girlyman wakes up. Ultras are blessed with a new codex and their own rulebook. Gw sells a ton of spacemarines and rides of to the sunset

You see my children, if I die upon the Golden Throne, Terra will be swallowed into the Warp and will release an exodus of Daemons too massive to be described with words. The Imperium of Man will fall into anarchy and civil war, as all will attempt fruitlessly try to fight back the oncoming horde. The Adeptus Astartes, Astra Millartium, Adeptus Minostorum and Adeptus Mechanicus will abandon their posts to fight the new threat.

In addition the Adeptus Mechanicus will split yet again, as the C'tan, the Void Dragon will break from it's Martian prision and roam the Galaxy again. The majority of the Mechanicus will follow the C'tan, beliving him to be their Machine God.

The Psycic backlash from the loss of the Astronomican will most likely blind, if not outright kill every Psyker, Navigator and Astropath in the Milky Way Galaxy. If the loss of the Astronomican does not kill them, the trillions upon ontold trillions of souls from Terra would send the Immaterium into an overdrive of Chaos. Moreso than it already is.

The Eldar will most die from the backlash, as Slannesh will be able to reach into the realm material and snatch every Eldar soul in a fraction of a second.

The Necros, Orks and Tau will go mostly unaffected during the initial incrusion. However even if they all united together, they would not be able to stop the infinite army of Chaos.

The most horrifying part is that the Chaos gods will set aside their rivalies in order to rend the Imperium asunder. The Brutal power of Khorne directed by the infinite yet empty mind of Tzeentch will destroy the Adeptus Astartes. While the "comforting" touch of Nurgle and Slaanesh will turn the Adeptus Millitarium upon itself.

I will be turned into a new Chaos god, one of Order and Law. However I will be unable to act in the Material realm as I was able to in life, I would be powerless. Only able to watch humanity die by their own nightmares.

Then you remake the galaxy and we play Warhammer: Age of the Emperor.
>>
>>44737931
this
and for good, people will be able to use all this content to make new computer gaems and whats not
>>
>>44738452
How would Orks go mostly unaffected and unable to battle against Chaos when there are Orks that worship Khorne and their own Gods would also be able to break free into the Material Realm?
>>
>>44738452
cont...

After the Imperium dies the Chaos gods will turn their collective gazes upon the remaining xenos. The Tau and Orkz will stand no chance and shall fall before them like a ratling in the Eye of Terror.

Once the entire galaxy has been wiped away the Chaos gods will turn on each other and began a slaughter the likes of which the galaxy has never seen since the War in Heaven.

Khorne will kill Slaanesh
Tzeetch kills Nurgle
Khorne and Tzeetch shall begin and epic duels of the eons. Then the fifth chaos god shall erupt from the carnage. Malal destroys the remaining chaos forces and then, destorys himself in a mindless fury.

The resulting deaths of 5 major dieties will cause the Warp to destory the material realm. Ending the universe as we know it.

Then after many eons, it will start all, over, again.

tldr; everyone loses but Nurgle get a hearty chuckle in death.
>>
>>44738553
The Orks are not as psychically attuned as Humans are, so they would fall like wheat in a hurricane because the Daemons exists almost wholly in the realm material. Also Gork and Mork are not nearly as powerful as the big 4.
>>
There's those new books were orks get somekind of an interdemensional moon, and it shrecks all the imperial fists then they go to terra, and start shrecking that with their moon thingy, then something something eldar, something something some space marines find out how to stop all the orks and then to be continued?
>>
>>44738020
Nope, 40k has been dying for a looooooong time.

From out of leftious obscurous an Inquisitor no one has ever heard of figures out how to resurrect the Emperor. He is regenerated, awakened, and stands forth from his tomb to view the dreary polluted skyscape and lands that is now Terra.

"As Earth remains unchanged, so too have you corralled the traitors in a warp storm and done nothing since. Do not talk to me of crusades. I am the only crusade. This is what you should have done, BEHOLD!"

And with the donning of his holy loincloth, and not a stitch else, natch; he jets off into the Eye of Terror and proceeds to rape everything and everyone.

Slaanesh is satisfied. No one is happy, though.

The aforementioned Inquisitor gives chase to the edge screaming, "You forgot your nightlight, yo!" and tosses in the Astronomican.

The 'nids arrive in their entirety and follow that delicious beacon.

The Necrons revive and seal off the Eye of Terror once and for all. They proceed to kick everyone off their front lawns, and destroy Mars for good measure. They clearly state: "War is over. We win. Fuck off and leave us alone now." They go to their respective homes and chill.

The Elves and the Orks party like it's no longer 49,999.

The Tau unleash the ultimate weapon, a Tau girl pile. Humanity rejoices.

The Galactic Republic is formed, and the whole is renamed: "A galaxy far, far away."

>Emperor dies
>Imperium separates into smaller empires that desperately fight against chaos.
>Cadia is taken over by chaos.
>Terra falls to chaos and Mars soon after. Grey Knights are successful at defending Titan.
>Some empires are successful because they are not primary targets of chaos influence. Ultramar is successful because they have the Ultramarines!
>As the chaos gods see the "inevitability" of their triumph, the begin to fight among themselves.
>Star child is born but it takes a few centuries for him to develop and take over one of the small empires.
>The star child manages to eventually make a new imperium and sets his sights to reclaiming Terra.
>The main tyranid hive fleet arrives
>Many Ork clans unite
>The Silent King returns and begins to unite all necrons.
>>Eldar lose some minor craftworlds as well at Ulthwe, which was unable to escape the clutches of chaos after Cadia fell. As the last of the Ulthwe eldar fall, Ynnead is born.
>Tau continue to be irrelevant.
>>
>>44737787
The Necrons awaken en mass at the same time the main Tyranid hive fleet begins flooding into the galaxy. Realizing that reigning eternally over a dead galaxy is no fun, the Necrons mobilize to stop the Tyranids. Necrons and Nids neutralize each other.

The Eldar are caught in the middle of the fight as Necrons flood the web-way in their war against the Nids. Cegorach tricks Slaanesh into forcing her way into the web-way via Khaine's gate, to save the race which birthed her and still provides her most satisfying meals. Ancient psionic defenses around the gate rip Slaanesh apart, and the Ancient Eldar gods are released/reborn from her fragments.

Despite the power provided by their reborn gods, the Eldar are still no match for the Necrons. They withdraw from the web way almost entirely, fleeing to exodite worlds and the Craftworlds. Under the guidance of thier reborn Gods the Eldar begin rebuilding their civilization in real-space.

Cipher, guided by desperate fragments of the Emperor's consciousness, infiltrates the Imperial palace via the warp portal in the basement. He sneaks into the throne room and kills the Emperor with the cursed Blade of Luther. This snuffs out the last of the Emperor's life force peacefully, preventing a new Eye of Terror from being created focused on Terra.

This saves trillions of lives, but the Astronomicon goes out, and the Astropaths are now unable to communicate over interstellar distances and are all vulnerable to Chaos. Countless vessels, and thousands of worlds, are lost to the warp as a consequence. Long range warp travel and communications are crippled. Each Imperial sector is now cut-off from all external support. Humanity is at the weakest it has been since the Age of Strife.
>>
>>44739048
The forces of Chaos are shocked and unbalanced by the sudden loss of Slaanesh. Abaddon takes advantage of the confusion to rally the forces of Chaos undivided and declares the Final Black Crusade. He pledges to take Terra and seat himself on the Golden Throne, making himself the Dark Emperor and a new God of Chaos. Cadia falls to his forces and his fleet surges south into the Segmentum Solar. Soon Abaddon's forces are engaged with the Battle Fleet Solar in mankind's home system itself.

However, Chaos is nothing if not treacherous and self-defeating. No sooner are Abbadon's forces fully committed to the sieges of Mars and Terra than word reaches him that his holdings in the Eye of Terror are being raided by the Red Corsairs of Huron Black Heart. With his supply lines about to collapse behind him, Abaddon must withdraw from the Solar system having gained nothing. Abaddon swears vengeance against Huron, and the Dark Gods delight at the prospect of an eternal war between their two favorite pawns.

While the forces of Chaos fight themselves to a stand still, humanity rallies. Covens of radical Inquisitors have long anticipated the death of the Emperor and the failure of the Astronomicon. Daemons bound to navigation systems and communications arrays are used by some. Others have operated psyker breeding programs for centuries to provide psychic choirs capable of providing warp beacons and communications. These choirs are useful only over a few thousand light years, but it is enough to begin re-uniting Imperial sectors with their neighbors.
>>
>>44739048
With the Emperor gone the Imperium is lost and humanity fragments into smaller empires. Space Marine Chapters, Forge Worlds, Fleet bases; all become the power bases of new empires as the defenders of humanity rally around them. Many radical Inquisitors find their ability to travel and communicate over long distances makes them valuable to many regimes, while their methods cost them the support of others. Without the authority of the Imperium to back them up Inquisitors must play politics very carefully to survive.

In the Ultima Segmentum the baleful glow of the Hadex Anomaly provides a reference point for navigators to guide their ships by, but it slowly eats away at their sanity as they contemplate it. Ultramar becomes the basis of a major human empire, while it's Tau neighbors rapidly assimilates isolated human worlds into the Greater Good. The Fourth Sphere Expansion will double the number of Human worlds under Tau rule, but the defenders of mankind find this vastly preferable to leaving those worlds to the mercy of an Emperor-less galaxy. In time, The Ultramar Imperium and the Tau Empire will even negotiate a formal alliance.

The End Times for 40K simply kicks off an age of high adventure. Humanity is fragmented but surviving. Freed from the oppression of the Imperium mankind can embrace the power of the Warp, continue evolving into a psychic race, and finally update it's technology. New empires are being built and new alliances are being forged. Some worlds will fall to Crusades by fanatical Astartes who refuse to admit the Imperium is gone. Others will make allies of Xenos, or darker powers, to ensure their survival. The Emperor's final sacrifice will open infinite possibilities for humanity's future.

Also, the Orks keep fighting everyone, so for them this is a win.

Yes, this is good. There needs to be some indication on what happens with Ynnead though.
>>
>>44737871
That's ridiculous. Even GW wouldn't do something that stupid.
>>
>>44740060
Hadn't thought of that. I'd largely circumvented it via the rebirth of the Eldar Gods.
>>
>>44737787
>How does it all end?
It doesn't. Things go on and the "End of time" turn out to be crazy speech.
