Re: Warhammer 40k fluff thread VI: They see me Ward'en, they haten
Sports is always good filler - maybe take a Let's Play of a sports game campaign (bonus points if it's Blood Bowl) and write it in a shorter sports journalist style?
From the more advanced planets, socialite gossip is always good, as would be the latest traffic/pirate reports.
On less advanced ones, maybe news of bumper/poor harvests or new mineral resources found, giving rise to business opportunities/hooks.
On the more humorous side, you could do a column of Techpriest Aeolus' technical guide for laymen (substitute various Dilbert strips, re-flavoured for 40K and add more incense and candles).
Sister Kalama's (of the Adeptus Sororitas Order Hospitaller) agony column?
Bonus GrimDark points if the good Father has stumbled on a genestealer coven and is now infected. You could do a couple story sections of the Father's spectacular fall from grace and subsequent retirement into seclusion, then his coming back with a new reformed cult of the Emperor, with a message of the sinful to redeem themselves in the Emperor's light (the Father should know, right?) and has an amazing conversion rate of new followers.
