I remember hearing somewhere that if the Emperor dies then he wouod be reborn and would destroy Chaos? I don't think this is true but I have heard it a couple of times.

Yes, the Starchild theory back from the rogue trader era.

The essence of the dying Emperor leaves a psychic imprint in the warp which is fuelled further by the feverish worship of the Emperor, by the entire Imperium.

When it grows strong enough it will be a force of order in the warp, a fifth god; And it will bring order that can overcome chaos.

These days anyways... Back in RT it was all happy-ending like. Now they focuse more on the implausability of the whole thing and the potential side-effects: If the twisted forces of chaos corrupted the new god of order, it could potentially destroy the whole Imperium!

I'm kinda curious as to whether or not folks would accept a spin-off universe in which GW says: "Okay, this is What If Land in which has no connection to the current 40k canon-lore. Consider it us trying some new stuff. Don't like it? No problem. Stay playing the stuff you've grown to love, we'll keep supporting it just as we always have. But we'll do this new stuff, just to offer something else." In that, they officially move the 40k story forward in however manner they deem appropriate.

They did this with Battletech, and... it died. Pretty much the entire fanbase retreated from the Dark Age stuff back to Classical. At least that was my take on it.

He would realize how hard he's been working, hand the reins to Calgar and go to the sunny beaches of Lear for summer vacation

For starters hes ganna need some skin! I know it sounds kinda stupid be you can't be the god-emperor of mankind without any skin! Not to mention way way more than just a six pack of beer, he hasn't drunk any in 10,000 years.

What do you think the Golden Throne does?
The Emperor has been kept alive for the last 10K years by Special Brew, I thought everyone knew that!
