Returnoftheclown's thread reminded me of a conversation me and some friends have had too. Basically, if you could get put anywhere anywhen during the 41st Millenium (Terran Standard Time - From the beginning of year 40,000 to the end of year 40,999) then where and when would you go? What would you do? Assume that your appearance is literally as if you just suddenly existed, not like a mini warp jump or anything. You can have as much time to prepare before you depart as you wish.
The question might seem a little bland at first but take into account that fact that 40k nerds know a LOT about the 40k universe. Go to the Dark Angels and tell them you know about the fallen angels? Heck, most of the Dark Angels themselves don't even know about that. Tell people you know of the Chaos gods? Most imperials don't know about that. You know the names, deeds and histories of the primarchs? Historians would be picking your brain for knowledge. However... Show up on an imperial planet and profess knowledge of the universe which very few people know, let alone collectively all that knowledge? The Inquisition's gonna be on your ass faster than you can say "Golden Throne". You'd have to be careful. You'd be armed with all that knowledge... But that's all you'd have. You'd be labelled heretic and executed, most likely and you can't exactly stop them.
Personally, I think I'd go to one of the Space Marine chapters. They tend to not like the Inquisition and if I could prove my worth and that I could help them then at the very least I think they'd let me live. Alternatively I could just pick a nice planet and go live there and keep quiet about the dark truths of the galaxy.
