Default Will The Emperor Ever Wake Up?

I'm sure this question has been asked before, but I couldn't find any threads on it, and I'm interested to see your opinions on whether or not the folks at GW will make a drastic change to the game by waking the emperor up, or having him reincarnated (of course drastic changes would have to be made, books re-released etc., but that's not what I'm talking about right now).

I for one am interested to see what the emperor has to say on what has become of Humanity, none of which I imagine would be too pleasant.

Thoughts, anyone?

No GW won't ever make that drastic a change. Why would they? They've spent 20 years so far getting the background to here.

Why not try it for yourself though? I dunno, WH42K or something... fluff, 'futuristic' army list, rules for the Emperor - I'd be interested in your take on what's in the future for the Imperium (personally, I think it's all a nid's breakfast, but there you go!)

No, he won't. Abbadon the Despoiler will kill him and take his rightful place as Emperor.

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

My opinion is cypher will euthanise him. Then we'll all get to see if the reincarnation rumours are true.

I think this will happen; Abaddon and a bunch of sorcerors will use the powers of chaos to corrupt the emperor's soul and send the imperium into anarchy. Then the nids will try to have their "breakfast", but the necrons will attack the nids because they want to be the ones who harvest the souls of all of the galaxy's races. Then all the armies will fight each other until all the races are wiped out except for the eldar and the dark eldar, who will come out of the webway and have a massive "we won" party (with tons of snacks).

If my wife has to wake him up, he will. She's mean.

Soon as GW figures out how making him do so will make more cash.

Its easy, you release him as a 'Limited Edition' £50 boxed set, only say, 3000 in the country. You then make him brutally hard, and allow space marine players to field him as a legitimate hq choice.

Here's the real money maker though...

The fact that he's 'limited edition' will ensure he sells, along with harsh, effective rules for all the power gamers.

Then, later on, they release different variants on the emperor, all special limited runs, but with different rules...

See where i'm going with this?

If they wanted to, they really could make some easy money. Especially when they release limited runs of a reincarnated horus...
