There’s a lot of dark corners in the universe. Here are just a few of our favorites and some possible answers.
What happened to the Brainboyz? (and what would the Ork race be if they returned)
Legend says the smallest amongst Orkoids created their larger brethren as a hardy race of survivors, they were wiped away in a great plague long ago, leaving the galaxy’s current Orks as their legacy. Other legends say the Old Ones make the “Krork” to be utterly self-sufficient and the galaxy’s best survivors – to endure long after their creators faded from history.
Who created a map of ancient Terra deep underground on the far side of the galaxy?
A tale emerged from early in the Great Crusade from a Luna Wolves legionary who bore witness to an event he described as something akin to fear. The Emperor discovered a long-dead world on the far side of the galaxy with deep subterranean structures. In the deepest chamber, the Master of Mankind discovered an enormous map of Terra as it existed many tens of thousands of years in it’s past. The Emperor studied it for some time before ordering it put to the torch and leaving without another word.
Were the Zoats scouting or fleeing from the Tyranid hivefleets?
Creatures described as matching the description of zoats were reported in Imperial space in M38. They were sentient, could communicate and said they were fleeing slavish oppression. Some say the Zoats were a slave race that broke free of the Hive fleets, while others speculate they are scouting organisms of a different mechanism than Genestealers who range ahead of the full Hive fleets. By the time of M39 there are no known traces of them left.
What happens If you put a Culexis Assassin in the Golden Throne? It’s probably bad.
Horus himself planned to use a daemonic anti-psyker to assassinate the Emperor during the Heresy. The mere concept of a Pariah entering the Imperial Throneroom is disquieting. A psychic null taking a seat in the Golden Throne that is the focus of the Astromonican will probably void all kinds of warranties. Of course getting past the Companions would be a challenge.
Are the Alpha Legion pulling “an inside job” on Chaos itself?
Alpharius/Omegon were shown a dark future of the Imperium where an ignorant mankind and mechanicus lived empty superstitious lives under the corpse of the Emperor – his great secular vision eradicated. To avoid this future he was offered a path to let Horus win the Heresy, allowing chaos to quickly rise to the heights of power, then consume itself in the flames of mankind’s death. Choosing this patch to destroy chaos didn’t turn out exactly as planned, but the Alpha Legion are enigmatic, secretive, plot and scheme in the long-term, and still use the battle cry “For the Emperor” to this day.
Are half of the Ultramarines descendants of one of the missing Legions?
It is noted during the Heresy that the vast Ultramarines legion was not always so large, and swelled dramatically around the time one or both of the missing primarchs/legions were censured.
Speaking of the missing Legions – I want ONE good reason the Traitor Primarchs have bitten their tongues?
While the Loyalist’s tongues may still be held by honor, exactly why would any of the Daemon Primarchs hold onto the secret for 10,000 years?
