>>29073226>The demise of the Necrontyr as their minds are transferred is enough to expel the souls out for the C'tan to consume them.
In the codex it says the Necrons harvested life force and fed it to their masters. Ergo they gotta have some sort of technology to gather up souls, store them, and them feed them to the C'tan instead of letting them trickle into the warp. Or are we suggesting the C'tan exist in the warp now as well, capable of feeding on the souls even within it? How many cans of worms does that open up?
Also, they did weaponize the "energies of the living universe" and blast the C'tan into pieces with it.>The Codex says that the C'tan received a massive power boost from devouring the ''life essence'' of the Necrontyr. The only thing that explains that empowerment is the soul factor unless you gonna try to reason that the life energy of a sickly race is more empowering than the stars.
Good that you brought that up.
How exactly does star energy and souls feed the same creature? Why don't the DE use all those stars they got stacked away to fuel themselves instead of having to bother with the whole soul sucking? Why don't they give the Emperor a Sun enema once in a while instead of bothering with all the shit tier psykers that aren't even good enough for the astronomican?
Can you explain how the electromagnetism of living things tasted better than star energy to the old C'tan. Or why fear and terror made it taste even better? Or better yet, explain how the souls of a non-psychic race was enough to give them powers beyond understanding, but all the untold souls of psykers during the War in Heaven didn't cause them to tear reality asunder with their awesomeness?
