    You will play as Guilliman throughout the entire prologue. After that, your choices and my own belief about what makes a better story may change the protagonist (or not.). But if it does, it will be human. I want this story to focus on the Imperium and the choices made to arrive at its present situation, and to continue on from there.

    There's plenty of interesting stories that could be told from the perspective of other races, but my focus here is on Mankind, and how too much of what it does and is has been determined by outside forces and lazy marketing directors. Hence using clean-slate Guilliman as a game changer.

    Also, thank you for voting. I am quite overwhelmed this got to 5 pages in less than a week and just one post.

    He may already be a Chaos God. He has his greater Daemons (Living Saints,) he has his lesser Daemons (the Legion of the Dead,) and he has a dark counterpart from ancient history who may be a part of him.

    As we know when She Who Thirsts was born and the Eye of Terror first blossomed, the decadent Eldar Gods were consumed, all but three: Khaine the Bloody Handed, warfare, discipline and dedication. Isha, fertility, growth and hope. Cegorach, anarchy, jest and recklessness.

    Why did they survive? Simple, because they are aspects of Slaanesh's elder brothers: Khorne, combat, rage and abandonment. Nurgle, rot, endurance and despair. Tzeentch, cunning, hidden meaning and change. Or they were aspects of the Eldar Gods, but that is neither here nor there.

    Now Slaanesh, of infinite sensation and self absorption has his counterpart in cold, unfeeling, deadly Ynnead. So we see reflections eternally echoing through the Warp.

    The Emperor is anathema to the Chaos Gods, true death and a feared enemy. There is another who can be said to be such a one, an ancient being who waxes and wanes as Chaos does. Old Malal, madness, malice and enmity to all. Perhaps he is the opposite of our God Emperor, who is wisdom, zeal and a benefactor to the galaxy entire personified.

    Or perhaps it's not exactly what we're choosing right now? ie from what Logos said, we're choosing the belief of Guilliman , not the mean he'll be able to use to achieve his goals.

    Again I am confused. From my calculus, either A, E or F has won. I am again at a loss. Does anyone know the actual proper result? I think I'm calculating it wrong.

    It would seem that E has the most first preference votes (eight) plus two non-preferred votes, so it ends up taking the lead.

    Its actually "Que será, será". Its being pronounced wrong, too.

    Also this is WH40k, so this is probably less whatever will be will be, and more like

    That's part of the fun. Sometimes Codex actually picks the wisest choice, sometimes Codex picks the worst possible one.

    5 pages of back-and-forth DISCUSS!!! and drama after one initial post. This is already promising.

    Sadly, because we aren't Dark Eldar, there isn't one. :(

    I'm more implying that I enjoy that the character creation drama is a time-honoured CYOA tradition, and that I have missed it greatly.

    Now flop to E.

    So you've resigned yourself to fate, realising that you can't change it? I'd take this as another vote for E.:smug:
