It's not a big deal, but since when have we started citing Lexicanum? They're a middleman, as far as fluff is concerned -- they certainly don't make anything up on their own. --Not LongPoster Again 02:22, 8 April 2012 (BST)

Dunno. It's been there as long as I've seen the page. I've always thought it was kinda pointless and just cluttered the page. So would anybody be opposed to removing it? --dokfm

We only have one god of love, and that's Slaanesh.

should'nt Khornes Love interest be Valkia the Bloody?

The Box God[edit]

I know that I'm the one that put in the Box God entry in the first place but why is it almost at the top of the page despite it not existing in canon in any way and was created entirely out of a joke making fun of the METAL BAWKSES meme. ilniaj

Nature of the gods[edit]

First time poster long time lurker. Anyway, I read the part where it is stated that the gods power must be restricted to the milky way on accord of their supposed present inability to take over the galaxy and Im not entirely sure thats the case. Im going to present my understanding of the chaos gods natures and my purely theoretical extent of their power for discussion. I think that to present the gods as beings with objectives and distinction between qualities and will is a mistake. In my interpretation they are spiritual as opposed to corporeal, the very essence of emotion. In this sense we cannot abstract any mortal emotion from the gods themselves. Any feeling of rage is a participation of Khorne itself since Khorne is pure rage. Sentient emotion made manifest in the material world. As such any feeling of rage in the universe is a manifestation of Khorne and thus it (Khorne) is not limited to the milky way. The argument presente, that the gods would have taken over by now, can easily be explained as the gods not really having a motive other than themselves, the grand plan has no conclusion for an end is anathema to chaos. The gods dont win or lose because in any conflict they are made manifest in various ways. They are a constant of life tho im not sure wether to say life is because of them or they are because of life. Anyway. Sorry for the wall of text. If anyone is interested in this ill edit the page with this as an alternate take on the whole issue. Thanks.

I think the argument for the Chaos Gods being restricted to the Milky Way is based on the War in Heaven (the Webway of the Old Ones was only in the Milky Way), the fact that all four Chaos Gods were formed from human/Eldar emotion, and that when the Tyranids arrived, there was an anti-warp factor of their being which was alien to the servants of Chaos. If you want to post an alternative opinion note, I doubt too many ca/tg/irls would be opposed to it, but expect it to be debated and revised occasionally. --Kracked Mynd (talk) 17:45, 6 December 2018 (UTC) edit: The article also expands on this by mentioning that if sentient species outside of the Milky Way were also feeding the Chaos Gods, it would lead to them being immensely powerful. Plus, although it's not in the article, the Cabal's plan to destroy the human race to destroy the Chaos Gods would be fucking stupid otherwise.

Gork and Mork?[edit]

They're gods, and they live in the warp, so wouldn't that make them Chaos gods?Skadooshbag (talk) 17:29, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

Only if the Eldar/Elvish gods are considered Chaos gods (hint: they're not). --Kracked Mynd (talk) 18:19, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
The Eldar gods were psychic constructs who obtained sapience. How were Gork and Mork created?Skadooshbag (talk) 18:49, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
Gork and Mork are created through the energy of the WAAAGH! They are not chaos gods as that's as different to the warp as the Tyranid Hive Mind is. -- Triacom (talk) 20:18, 31 March 2019 (UTC)
