The truth about Malal

    Alright Mon-keigh, listen up. I'm going to let you in on a little secret that GW doesn't want you to know.

    Malal exists (but not really) and is the chaos god of non-canon and ret-con.
    You see, when the Emperor killed horus, it is said that the glorious mind-pimp-slap was so hard that the Warmaster ceased to become canon. Non-existant if you will. GW has not realized it yet, but what is known as "The first ret-con" inconsequentially caused the creation of a new chaos god: Malal

    Malal lives in a universe that is even crazier than the warp. A mirror realm where there is nothing but races that have been "killed off" by GW and planets have mysteriously disappeared or destroyed. What exists in 40k does not exist in the mirror realm and vice versa. History and battles like how the necrons beat the ultramarines or that terrible 40k fanfic you've read on deiviantart are also real in Malal's realm as they are not in this universe.

    The only way to pass between our universe and Malal's is to have GW ret-con you, or to bring you back from being ret-coned.

    Malal is easily the most powerful of ANY chaos god. Commanding entire races like the squats and is even in charge of three primarchs: Horus, and the two missing primarchs. Whatever is ret-conned becomes under his control.

    Take this secret and guard it well. Don't tell anyone or you very well might join his forces.

  3. Malal is basically a Greater Daemon, the Sons of Malice were able to summon him without totally breaking reality in official lore. He's definitely not the strongest Chaos god, their daemon hordes are more than a match for any retconned race.

    Of actual Malal events that actually exist in lore, arguably the Tyrant Star of the Claxis System would be his most powerful expression, it's not officially tied to him, but it does cause planet populations to descend into self destructive anarchy, but even that passes and doesn't become a daemon world. Though that may well be retconned since FFG is discontinuing their Warhammer books.

    I don't know how to say this, but... the ending of "Ravenor Rogue" and a comment by a daemon in "Talon of Horus" both independently confirm that there are several more universes in WH40k than just real-space and Warp.

    And there is this dimension where the Flayed Ones reside. Don't know if that counts as a universe.
  5. Caentyr Caentyr Subordinate

    YES It all exists in Malal's rhealm.

    I rest my case.
    You fool. Malal is beyond the ways of fluff and crunch. GW has hid him from you so you would not give him more power as he feeds off of all that is not canon. Where chaos worshipers are beyond the comprehension of mortals, Malal is beyond the comprehension of chaos.

    Those discontinued books will feed him as will the concept of the Tyrant Star.

    Um ........

    If THAT exists in Malal's realm, how would it be Malal's realm? How can Malal control something that has all Warp Gods as mere extremities/talons of it's own body?
  7. Caentyr Caentyr Subordinate

    GW has not declared the creature canon, but the warp entities are. Therefore only part of the creature exists in the warp in the form of the warp gods while the rest is in Malal's realm.

    I see.

    But how does Malal control such an unfathomable horror? The Nex is, basically, the sum-total of Chaos and the Warp.
  9. Caentyr Caentyr Subordinate

    The nex is a powerful beast yes, but you forget Malal controls everything opposite and false from canon even the laws of physics. This gives him what appears to be reality bending powers of his own realm. Malal can "theoretically" make the Nex get on all fours and bark like a dog in a maids outfit.

    If it's not canon, It's under his control. Simple as that.
