Roboute of all the Primarchs knew the Emperor was not infallible, even if his ideals were very noble.

Father, why are you telling your most intellectually rigorous and rational of sons to abandon his culture on faith based trust?

I tried to take them out, you cocksuck. It would have killed you. I decided to give you the blaze of glory death you WANTED instead of wasting you.

His reasons were that he was racist against psykers. I don't like what the HH series has done with him.

Peace can only be if the galaxy bows to humanity. After that, you can have all the peace you want.

Oh fuck you Angron. Use the superior intellect I made you with just for once. I really didn't want my own son fall to some Chaos faggot, like your "brothers" already were. I mean, how can you not be thankful that you were saved? Instead of "Oh yeah, thanks for saving me from brutal slaughter and for giving me my own legion of superdudes" you were just like "Fuck you dad, all the other cool kids get to be brutally killed, only I don't! You don't even understand me dad!". Warp be damned, I was the one who actually cared for you! And if you had given me the chance, I would have found a way to safely remove the nails from your brain, because I am the fuckmothering Emperor!

I took that planet through nice and diplomatic ways, without starting another war that only leads to the death of humans. In exchange for that, I get to weaken Khorne a bit by taking out some of his cultist. Also, I get my son back into my custody, so he can be safe again and learn from myself. It's the perfect plan, except for the way Angron himself reacted to it. That was fucking groxshit.

Oh come on - one of his quotes has him complaining about constantly being forced to fight brutal war after brutal war against people who had no fight in them or would have capitulated.

Let's face it - Angron would be willing to change his story to whatever it took to justify the things that he did. The Nails made him into a violent killer, but he couldn't accept that and tried to blame everything and everybody but himself, and constantly found some new ideal to pretend to champion.

Thanks to Black Library, we now know the entire Horus Heresy could have been avoided with the Emperor having a few short non-dickish conversations with his kids.

But nope, the Emperor is Autisitc (the trait the Lion inherited) and can't understand why the Primarchs don't mindlessly obey orders.

Thank you Father for making me not totally perfect, but still greater than this bunch of crybabies.
>>
>>44952917
Well, I had good intentions for you. You would have been one of my greatest Primarchs, and under my tutelage you would have learned to control and use your powers in a nice and constructive way. But these Chaos dicks sent you over to Space-Gotham, were you grew up to be a total loner/terrorist. And when I finally found you, you had the planet under control and immediately remembered me as your father, so I thought everything was okay. But I saw you were a bit lonely, so I gave you a whole army of terran superfriends to cheer you up. Didn't help though, that you replaced them all with the guys from Nostromo, they were a bad influence to you.

>>44954251
I love you son, but seriously: I don't want to be worshipped as some kind of God-Emperor of Mankind. Man-Emperor would be fine though. Remember what I told you through the Imperial Truth: Religion is for dummies. You can go and build a temple for the glory of MANKIND though. Have fun, my son.

>>44955404
You are Alpharius, of course. Is that a trick question or something? I mean, it is very obvious.

>>44957105
Ah, yes Roboute. I made you all with special abilities and skills in mind, and you are no exception. In fact, you have proven yourself by taking over Ultramar through rather peaceful means, which is great. But stop picking on your brothers, remember: we are one big, happy family.
>>
>>44953556
It's worse than that. Not telling his sons about chaos when they were inevitably going to encounter it would have helped the astartes in practical, tactical ways as well.
>So, if you encounter green dudes with one eye and a horn sticking out of their head, switch to your power armour's internal air supply. There will also probably be some swarms of little fuckers trying to bring you down, so get your flamers ready.
But nope, let's let them learn this sort of thing through the deaths of many space marines, because they didn't have a fucking clue what was going on when they first met daemons.

>>44957201
Well Rogal, I needed leaders for the 18 Legiones Astartes. After all, I am a busy man and have better things to do than going into lengthy wars all over the galaxy. But I also wanted sons, a family that understands me and my motives. It can get really lonely if everyone around you just dies within the blink of an eye. But you wouldn't die that easily, no...You wouldn't only be my sons, but also my companions, the way Malcador was. But closer, with ties of family between us.

Also, making my children through artifical means gives me more control about how they will turn out as adults, as I can just make their DNA up as I want. Or at least it worked this way until these four warp dicks scattered my children throughout the galaxy.

pretty sure the codex doesnt say anything about primarchs
considering by the time it was written a third of them were dead and another third werent even apart of the imperium
>>
>>44959006
They were sort of friendly(ish) rivals before alpha legion went heretic - with rowboat thinking their doctrines were inferior, and alpharius/omegon thinking the ultramarines doctrines were too predictable. They would compete. Like, alpharion would show off how well they could destroy entire planets with minimal losses to the ultramarines, etc.
>>
>>44959054
Oh, and he killed Alpharius or not.

I am Alpharius
>>
>>44959006
Because Alpharius is a wimp and needs to be taught about the glory of the Ultramarines.
>>
>>44959155

The Ultramarines totally trust the Alphian Hydras. Of course, the Inquisitors have guessed the truth, and have dropped what they're doing to investigate. All according to plan.

If I were running it as an RPG, I'd have two plots prepared. One is where they are using the hydras to infiltrate the Ultramarines, one by one. In a chapter of a thousand marines, it only takes a few well-placed infiltrators before you can start intentionally recruiting more. One you have enough in leadership positions, you start using your control to start slowly eliminating loyalists. After all, some troops have to fall if the battle is to be won. It just always happens to be the loyal guys who do the sacrificing. Once only a few are left, you can simply bump them off. Hail hydra.

Alternatively, you subverted ONE guy, years ago. An assistant to a high-ranked adept in the Ministorum. His boss wasn't responsible for naming the Alpharian Hydras, but the clerk in the office across the hall was, and it was a simple matter to change the form. Two simple words changed in a form hundreds of years ago have sent echoes that distract the Inquisitors and sow suspicion in the Imperium.

I'll make the real one whichever plot the PCs think it isn't.

>>44959155
Eskrador never happened. It was a lie spread by Alpha Legion operatives.

It was for the best of the Imperium, but sadly, Roboute didn't think so.

>>
>>44961796

I don't know. Magnus seems kind of off the reservation to me. I suggest we repeatedly complain about him without explaining why him doing what you always do is dangerous. Then give him draconian rules to operate under without any way to make sure he follows them, and then leave him off to his own devices.

I'm sure that's a winning plan.
>>
>>44948593
>>44952906
I like my theory that since each of the primarchs were tampered with genetically, except the Lion (who was the control subject), for the second one the scientists were like "Well we got one boring normal primarch! Lets try something nuts with this next one!" then it back fired horribly so they toned it down for the rest.
