    It is back!

    Guillichad is really showing his dominance there. Gotta put them knife-ears in their place.

    I'm choosing 2 because we will fight Traitor Primarchs at some point and we're really devoid of some psyker oomph. Really, Guilliman has tangled with Daemon Primarchs and lost each time. You can't always beat the material with the immaterial, somes you have to fight fire with fire. Eldrad is the closest thing to an Emperor-tier Psyker around right now, we won't get better training unless 30k Emperor, Magnus or Malcador drop out and teach us.

    Since i can't brofist, i will add that that is what the narration was referring to: Guilliman was shamefully beat up by Fulgrim and Magnus (twice defeated), and only somewhat evened out with Mortarion. So that's his current line of thinking.

    Though not necessarily the psychic alternative is the best one, obviously. He's just hurting from his clear inferiority to Warpforged foes.

    Mine own aside: This is one of the few points that i unequivocally enjoy in Black Library lore, which is Daemon Primarchs raping their materium foes. i always thought it was iffy that loyalist primarchs could go toe-to-toe with daemon-empowered rape machines (see Sanguinius, Vulkan and Corax), and I quite enjoy that guilliman failed when he tried. For all of his power, he is only, aha, human.

    1) While you were fighting Traitor Primarchs, I studied the Blade!

    Build strength upon strength. Explore the Vaults. Let the Eldar do their mind tricks if we need them.

    1 may make gullible man vulnerable to the emperor, while 2 might make him vulnerable to the eldar. Still there is much value in 2 but because of the risk I can't quite decide between 2 and 3.

    1 That blade is a part of the Emperor made manifest, it will be salvation. Only Abominable Intelligence lies under Mars, and worse.

    Did they ever find the Amber room?

    If not, the last three quakes have probably have ruined it.

    3) I like Cawl, he has brought a breath of innovation to time when change is Heresy. So anything he can do should help us in the long run.

    PS. Also, chaos players are butthurt about lack of chaos primaris marines.

    Look at the Emperor-cattle and technoheretics over here

    What we need is some good ol' Psyker Power to even the odds

    Roboute has a fairly powerful mind. Imagine Psyker Roboute, he could control and coordinate vast armies all the while destroying daemons with a hard glance. This is the power of the Anathema, and we must claim it.

    reminder that the emperor died like a bitch, religion is the morality of slaves, and eldrad can probably reprogram our mind like its a ti-84

    Publicly bitchslapping an entire race then letting them deep hypnotize you for months is a really good idea. Not like he will implement a "after the smoke clears, humanity are to permanently become eldar monkey serfs" trigger and turn us into a Manchurian Candidate no siree the eldar are content to be good little loyal allies for all eternity and definitely won't resent being reduced to second fiddle vassals
