The magics employed by the Empire have been used to do things as absurd as hide planets in alternate dimensions to allow armies of sorcerer space marines to learn the proper way to combat Deamons in privacy
Add Dark Eldar to the list of effectively no psykers, though they have more magitek than most their psykic abilities are now relegated to feeding off of the pain of their victims.
And yes The Open Door really started to sag when the daemon was left on Forgotten Realms, nothing can make me really care about him and his ridiculous matter of conquest. And that went on and on and on. And besides that there were several sections that could have been read as TL;DR author fiat kills people he doesn't like. IE the whole accidental impact with the draka, and no I know that Draka fics are common, but it was essentially an added scene that stroked the authors favorites list. And on and on. Mostly that is because it was simple ol' fanfiction, and hell it was decently entertaining at that, but I wouldn't really recommend reading through it again or recommend it to others. The Re-read it is just not so good (and this is after getting into a lot of the stuff that tOD had in it's crossovers, what it did well was act as a gateway to all sorts of good and entertaining things*), but his other works are good.
(Note that the Killfrenzy that the expy's used wasn't built by them, but rather was stolen from normal Chaos, which was an more interesting story that didn't go anywhere.)
* Disclaimer: I never read Thousand Shinji and I rather much despise EVA. But stuff like MLGN is really good, yet I can't say that the part of the Universe that tOD uses is even close to the best even if it is the easiest way to crossover. In otherwords screw Strykers and I give A's only the barest of passes (the finale just can jump off a cliff along with everyone who thought that revealing the girls secrets to their friends and family in a clip show was a good idea.)
