1. With the appearance of Perpetuals and Daemons technology should have accelerated to an unfathomable level, like Dark Age of Technology civilizations during the Early Bronze Age or before that
-Sure you can Altantis and Bronze Age Collapse as viable explanations as well as other highly-advance nations decimated by the Emperor, Daemons and Perpetuals but it can't explain why every advanced nation disappears throughout history
-It would be interesting to have novels on Be'lakor the First Daemon Prince and how he connects with the Emperor/Perpetuals and the very advanced civilizations he built on Earth and in space. His journey from a Perpetual to a Power-hungry Daemon Prince and archenemy to the Emperor (Be'lakor should be able to hurt the Emperor and come very close to killing him. Causing the Emperor to be more paranoid and create the Primarchs and Custodes)
-Perhaps have some/most of these Bronze-Age-Advanced Civilizations leave Earth and the Milky Way Galaxy (Only to meet the Tyranids, Orks, Necrons, Chaos or another horrible fate. This is Warhammer after all)
2. All of Humanity should be worshipping Chaos (I know Khorne, Nurgle and Tzeentch 'awakened' during the Medieval Age but Chaos gives the middle-finger to time, space and logic all the damn time and get away with it)
-Entire civilizations, heck most of humanity, would jump at the gun to worship the Dark Gods as they are REAL AND PROVIDE MATERIAL BENEFITS!. In fact, Chaos should be the First-and-Only religion humans worship!
-Be'lakor's story should provide insight on how so many or all Ancient Humans worship Chaos. Make him the Vandal Savage of Warhammer
-Imagine the Ancient Sumerians using Possessed Soldiers, summoned Daemons and Warped Automatons to do their bidding. Germans using Warp Sorcery and Daemons during both World Wars. Aztecs summoning Skulltaker!
-People in desperate situations throughout Real Life history selling their souls to Chaos. Starving peasant boys becoming Possessed just to live longer. Ancient women becoming Sorcerers so they are no longer property in a male-dominated society
-I highly doubt the Emperor, especially back then, is capable or willing to wipe out humanity
These two things should be explored. I wished Josh Reynolds was still working for GW because stories like these would be interesting. He could do a Be'lakor Trilogy
ADB could do a Trilogy featuring similar grimnature like his Talos stories (Surprised he hasn't done any stories with Decimus post-Rift)
