I find that to be a likely reason, I had not thought of that.

BlackGuard There is also the possibility that Lorgar, in his own mind, has not been gone the staggering ten thousand years that have passed. Time is nothing within the Warp, and it is almost nothing with the Eye. I would not be shocked if the moment those doors to the Templum Inficio were closed, that millenia swarmed by even as Lorgar first bent his knees in prayer.

It is likely that he may just emerge one day and be shocked at the spread of time. Though with him now being a Daemon-Primarch that would seem unlikely.

TheGoblin Perhaps, like the Gods themselves, Lorgar cares very little for the material universe now? After all the Gods don't give a shit, so why should he?

Good point...Though the Word Bearers stick pretty well to The Book(Aka the planet sized tomb) that Lorgar wrote/is writing. I am not so sure he would be ashamed, mabe angry. But that's what a leader is for, come back for a bit and lay down the law!

Though I see the others legion Primarch's shame for sure. Most Primarchs even the really twisted ones. Had some pride in the notion of honor, philosophy and art. (maybe exclude Angron there.) Most of the Chaos Legions no longer appreciate such things. So I can see how they would feel even as servants of the Dark Gods that their Legions have fallen too low and petty to be worthy of their Lords attention and guidence.

ckcrawford Casting the fact that Daemons have very little of their human side to them. Lorgar is much content writing scrolls for the Chaos Gods and meditating. It is very possible that through his meditation, his soul is somewhere else.

If any of the Daemon Princes put on the Primarch Yolk again, they would have to face their mortal failures again. Both due to the fact they lost the war against the Emperor, and the fact that their legions are ruined shadows of their great conquests.

LongfangFenrika93 Its possible that Lorgar has a scintilla of his former self and maybe regrets his actions to an extent. Much like the Cabal's idea for Horus. Shoot me if this is a daft idea.

EDIT: Obviously, not the same regret that Horus would feel, but enough to relinquish control of his Legion to his sons, perhaps?

Apostle Thanks guys, yea that makes sense. I just so badly want to read some post-heresy Primarch work....How about the question if he is in any way orchestrating any current things with his Legion? Does he still have contact with Erebus? Or is our fair Lorgar literally sitting there in a locked up tower somewhere? I mean that is a long time to study/pout/pray.

TheGoblin The Gods have a plan for Lorgar, I'm sure of that. If they wanted him to lead the Black Crusades he would, but we'll just have to wait and see what they want with Lorgar. Like tabbytomo said, it would be very cool for him to come back with the other Daemon-Primarchs and kick Loyalist Primarch butt in the end times.
