Hey everybody probaly my first post here
Well, I was thinking that within the warp there must be alot of gods just not as strong as the great 4?
I was thinking of a god of purity but in a chaotic fashion, like purity at all cost. I remember seeing the god of law (or order I can´t remember which) in The Elder scrolls Oblivion, he is the opposed form of Shograd (I don´t remember his precise name) the god of Madness. But a god/goddess of Purity most be a rather small divinity in the warp.
But what do you guys think?
It could certainly exist, but you're right it'd be the extremes of purity, so encompass things like racial genocide and pathological cleanliness (probably part of the rituals would be things like almost removing a being's outer covering (in the case of humans, skin) in order to make sure it was clean.
Although it sounds quite close to perfection, which is the domain of Slaanesh in many ways; excess in anything is his/her sphere, so perfect purity could be dealt with under his/her auspices.
It does sound awfully close to Slannesh, I agree..
GW has never really articulated the difference between a God and a daemon, so I suppose you could call a powerful daemon a God if you wanted to, it seems kind of odd though. The 4 chaos gods are meant to represent the most primal drives of the living beings which dominate the galaxy, which makes them an order of magnitude greater and more powerful than any lesser daemon.
That said, there did used to be Malal, who was kind of a God of calculating hatred and cannibalism who despised all the other Gods and sought to undermine them. There are occasionally still sneaky references here and there, but for legal reasons GW don't mention him.

Ive always liked the idea of other chaos gods inhabiting the warp that wernt the big 4 and as far as im im concerned its possibly i mean surely theres other emotions out ther to feed on that the 4 dont cover that could be fed on by other enteties.
