I think he's already dead, and that the IoM is wasting their time praying to what is essentially a 40k eqyptian mummy equivalent. However, I think it'd be awesome if he were somehow to be brought back to life. How? Future tech, recovery of STC's, chaos playing about, who knows, though itd have to be at the end of mankinds time, when the emperor & his loyal primarchs stand side by side once again

He's dying. He's not going to come back, just die and maybe maybe become a minor chaos god. Either way the Emperor is just a microcosm of the Imperium, barely alive and failing.

HE'S NOT DEAD YET! HE'S JUST RESTING! Primarchs and damnation people, you'll belive a fat musician in a white suit still lives but not The Emperor of Mankind? And the likes of kanelom see fit to attempt to judge Him? With a quote of John 3:16 as a siggy?

he shouldnt ressurect, as hes not dead, his mind and body are in the immaterium, as his worshipers allow that to happen by praying to him, also ressurecting him would stop 40k dead.

Going solely off of current fluff alone if he died he could theoretically come back as a god of some sort.
All of the gore-boners the Dark Eldar popped brought Slaanesh into existence. It stands to reason then that the countless worlds extolling his holy virtues and the untold billions that die (daily) in his name and service would kind of have the same effect on bring the Emperor back from the dead in an intangible/has own plane of existence/codex for creatures of said plane kind of way.
But he isn't dead yet. He's on life support.

Star child theory, the emperor will die and the imperium will be plunged into darkness for a long time( thousand years, hundred?) And then be reborn, either that or one of the primarches will return with whatever he needs to be healed, and gaks gonna get real as another crusade starts, humanity recovers its lost technology and former glory, and now the Emporer, being able to channel his physker power (which undoubtly has grown since his incarceration on the golden throne) he will destroy the chaos gods and pacify the warp.

Just to add to the grim darkness, he will completely die, man will once again be lost in the cold dark reaches of the galaxy.

Gods? There are no gods. Merely existences, obstacles to overcome.

No, he will stay static, just like the rest of the 40k universe. Killing/bringing him back to life would ruin the game in my opinion. It would tip the scale into Imperial favor too far and would just super cheesie. Dont like that idea at all. Same thing would happen if he died, the Imperium may very well crumble if he does. He will definitely stay static in my opinion.

I like the opinion that one Chaos player I met had ... that the Emperor was a false Emperor, basically the 5th Chaos God! 1000 souls sacrificed a day to keep him "alive?" Nah, he's a God, with a writhing mass of humans ensuring his existence, through continued strive with chaos.

Its malal!!!

i read something on throne of skulls recently that a guy had put, that when the emperor dies, he would join the 'emperor' entity in the warp and be born as, rather ironically a chaos god, and destroy the other four.

if he was a god though what would be his 'thing'? khorne has anger, slaanesh has lust etc...

their is always the terminus decree. that states that in the chamber of puritu rests a simple wooden box within this box written upon acient parchement is instructions known as the terminus decree. This artcifact goes unrecored in all the libraies in trhe Imperium and only the supreme grandmaster knows of it. it is a secrete so vast it culd brin gthe imperium to its knee or save it in its darkest hour. the only clue is the golden seal on the box. For their is only another seal that matches it in all of the imperiums far flung worlds. On terra on the Emporer's golden throne.

A top the tip of the endless spire

I believe he is dead already (physically), only his soul is tethered to his corpse still (by the golden throne) preventing him from being reborn or utterly dying. I think there was something like this in the inquisitor rule book. Hence the radicals and puritan sects of the Inquisition, one wants to get him reborn the other leave him where he is in case untethering his soul really does kill him. Or something like that....

Id like to see the story progress as the emperor dies, rise as a god who would wage war with the other chaos gods - which would continue to fight for man kind and also add new fluff/story and also make room to expand for a new emperor. Of course i have always been a rebel of the imperium as orks and rebel guard. The emperor no longer protects.

Well a few fluff options from the various codices in my possession

1. Russ finds The Emperor and Lion el Johnson somewhere in the Formless wastes and simply re-summons them (and himself) temporarily like daemons do.

2. Whatever that key thing that the Grey Knights were given that they were told to use only when the situation is at it's most grim, that either unlocks the golden throne, or is just another tool for summoning The Emperor.

3. Roboute Guilliman finishes healing gets of his lazy arse and becomes the new emperor

4. All of Vulcan's gifts are recovered and the final one somehow summons, you guessed it The Emperor

5. The entire sacrifice 1000 psykers everyday thing is attempting to do the same thing as the Eldar's, "once we have enough people in the infinity circuit our god of death will be born and kill Slaanesh"

The emperor is dying and will continue to do so until they find the vast majority of the technology lost. The ei banned all ai's whic hwill hurt them because I'm sure there is some old technology that allows you to transfer someone's mind and soul to an ai body. It makes sense if you think about it. Either that'll happen or like the previous poster stated leman russ will do some crazy stuff.
