So I was reading the fluff entry for Dark Eldar in the new rulebook, and noticed that it was a lot more explicit about the Dark Eldar's "hunger" (I don't know if this was previously expanded in the new DE codex?) and how it's basically caused by souls "aging"
I also read the bit about the Golden Thrones "appetite" for psykers increasing as time went on, and it hit me.
The emperor is in a similar position to the Dark Eldar, i.e. they both have bodies that have stayed alive longer than they should; so I wondered if the Emperor has the same problem - needing the suffering of others to rejuvenate his soul. After all, I would think that even the Haemonculi would agree that having your soul slowly sucked out of your body would count as a pretty good torture.
Am I crazy, or does it sound possible?
