Default Will the emperor die in OUR lifetime?

Horus Heresy is the 'background' of the game, pretty much a major event I would say, will there be events as such in OUR next few years of 40k gaming? I am interested to see what fiction will be written in the future.

Will the emperor finally die?
Will Corax reappear?
Will Robute Guilliman fiinally stop being a living statue?
Will Lion El'Jonson finally come out of the closet?
Will there be chapters currently existing completely wiped out?

There've been thousands of threads already about this. Honestly, has anyone even noticed what I've put in my sig, or the search bar? .

/rant.

I don't believe that GW will advance the storyline any time soon, and this is a widely held believe around this forums unless I am mistaken.

No. There will be a few changes to the story down the line but changes like that would change the 40k universe to much

There will be chapters currently exsisting that will be wiped out because there are books that mention chapters that were wiped out in living memory.
Why would they turn off Robute Guillimans stasis anyways?
Emperor wont die.
Corax wont show up, it isnt the end of times yet.
Lion El Johnson wont come out the closet, its a primarch thing.

Robute's wound will heal! He shall rise again! therefore stasis is irrelevant.
Isn't the machinery supporting the emperor's life starting to fail?

The Golden Throne has been starting to fail since 2nd edition. Ok, so maybe that is an exaggeration, but it feels like they always tease that the Emperor hangs on by a thread etc etc. They are never going to kill the Emperor or advance the story, they will just backfill.

That being said, I could easily see G-Dub publishing, through Black Library, an end of times series should the IP cease being profitable and interesting. In our lifetime though? I doubt it.

Um. Actually the Emporer has died. All that exists on that throne is a decayed body. However no warp portal has opened yet because his spirit is still tied to his body. Once that fails then the Imperium is truly fucked.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

Look who knows so much about Golden Thrones. It just so happens that your Emperor is only mostly dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive.

Today on the heresy show, we learn how to make good fluff!

Okay, we will need:

An Emperor.
A Warmaster.
Heresy.
A massive rebellion named after someone called Horus.
Some life.
Some death.
The Internet.

Okay, let's get cooking!

First we place the Emperor into our cooking bowl, don't worry about being dainty with him, he can handle it (Unless you're an Ork Warboss >_>).

We then place the Warmaster into a separate bowl. Remember, this is important. We then add heresy into the bowl and BAM!

We have our Massive rebellion (I may have lied about you needing that one earlier on).

Anyway, so now we simply add the two bowls together, add a sprinkle of life, a dash of death and essentially, that is what the current situation is and always will be.

Unless, of course, you added the Internet.

You really shouldn't have done that.

TLDR; The storyline won't be progressing. Be happy with the black library fiction and the smaller stories of the Night Lords, the Imperial Guard, the Ultramarines, the Iron Warriors, etc. It's all about the small things that are happening now, more than the Emperor. Honestly, I think they're just trying to avoid him and flesh out smaller players.

I'm ok with that for now though, just as long as I get my Night Lords fluff books...
