    The Emperor is dead. The Golden Throne is silent. The Astronomican has darkened. The Cadian Gate has been overrun by the Despoiler, and the entire sector has been lost. The Imperium has fallen.

    Warp travel has been disrupted, and the Eldar have fled to their craftworlds, fearful that without the God-Emperor's shield the Devourer will soon find them. The galaxy is in uproar. Sector-to-Sector communication no longer works; The Administratum has been fragmented. The Adeptus Astra Telepathica have managed to sustain local network communication-and-guidance relays, but they are erratic and most ships that venture into the Warp are lost to it. The Imperial Guard no longer serves a purpose; they do not know what they are guarding.

    The Imperium is at its knees, crippled, headless. The High Lords of Terra scurry around like ants without a queen. Many of the Astartes Chapters don't even know what is happening; their battlebarges too few, too far. The Inquisition itself has been dealt a deathly blow; without its information network, heresy runs rampant. The Tyrant Star has been sighted far from its sector of origin. The Techpriests in Mars have succumbed to holy fervor and now openly worship the Omnissiah as a separate entity from the Emperor, and say it lays in the bowels of their planet.

    In the gloom of space, there is no hope. No shelter. There is only war. But it is a war without form, a war amongst shadows. No-one knows where the first blow will hit, from whose hand it will come. The scattered worlds of the Imperium stand in dread as they await their destiny, the corrupting influences of Chaos already manifested en masse.

    Yet Chaos itself is weakened; something other than the Ruinous Powers roams the Immaterium, and the Traitor Legions have been battling a formless terror ever since the Emperor's demise. Not even the Gods themselves know what else lies in the coldest, deepest darkness of the dead stars that lie half in this world and half in the next.

    In the grim darkness of the 42nd millenium, there is only horror.

    ACT 1

    You have chosen to lead a Space Marines Chapter into uncertain glory and uncertain doom onto Cadia. No calling is higher than that of the Adeptus Astartes, the Emperor's Chosen. May your deeds live on forever.

    Against an enemy that could be negotiated with for our advantage, I would choose raising another Empire on our own planet.

    Without the easy pickings of the Imperium of Man already at its knees and awaiting the deathblow, I would choose to fight for the glory for the Chaos Gods.

    As things stand, our only option is to reforge our empire, just as the Emporer intended before he was imprisoned in the Golden Throne. For the Chapter, and for Mankind!

    The Imperium is strong only when it has an enemy to hate; only when it has unsurmountable odds facing it; only when everyone from the lowest ganger to the wealthiest governor fears the whisper from the outer darkness. When the Imperium is safe, it is divided.

    S-so it is for the sake of the Imperium, and not myself, that I pledge my service to you...Lord Tzeentch.

    The Necrons have resurrected the Emperor, and now he runs amok with a gauss-flail (don't ask how) in the warp, slaughtering demons and gods alike.

    There. Spoiled it all for ya. :smug:

    One vote for the insignificant little gnats, the Imperial Guard. For the lulz.

    A) The prophecy tells that once the first god-Emperor of mankind has finally served his final duty, and ITZ beckons within the Imperium of Man, in Continentum Australia of Holy Terra, deep within a bunker, rests the new god-Emperor who shall rise the Imperium of Man to its former glory with the support of the Adeptus Astartes, who obviously were genetically modified under the model of the Neanderthal ubermensch.

    His name is:

    Cleveland Mark Blakemore

    *Edit:

    And he shall start the:
