This is some fluff i created for my Chaos Space Marine army, but I still haven't worked it out completly.
My Chaos Space Marines are called Chaos Pirates and live on a planet in the Maelstrom where they keep all their treasures they have stolen. The Chaos Pirates arenâ€™t formed after the Horus Heresy but at the time when the Emperor, or the High Lords of Terra, decided to invade the Maelstrom with a group of Space Marines. They got trapped in some Warp Storms and most of them died. The surviving Space Marines crashed on different planets where they had to survive for years. But then they got help from a humanoid creature that called himself Mammon, angel of money and fortune. Mammon helped the Space Marines and brought them together on one planet. But as thanks for his help, the Space Marines need to steal and get gold for Mammon.
Not to rain on the parade, but the idea of chaos pirates has already been done. The Red Corsairs are chaotic pirates who live in the maelstrom.
Nice idea though.. Maybe you could tie it in. It just seems too wierd to have two marine-chaos-pirate groups living in the same place.

It sounds viable. The only thing is, I can't see marines, or warp deities for that matter all that interested in money.
It is possible. In our own history, there wasn't just one pirate fleet, there where dozens. And they all helped echother or fought each other. In the 40K universe they can fight against the Red Corsairs and be each others true enemies for life or something like that.Originally Posted by The_Giant_MantisIt isn't only money they are interested in, they more like the gold and artifacts with great powers whitin them. And of course they got hooked on to the freedom the now have of doing anything they want to do.Originally Posted by harlequin2262

If this deity/daemon isn't physically around leading the Chaos Pirates it could be that the nature of the ancient rites and offerings laid before him have become warped over time and there original significance lost.
For example originally maybe the daemon wanted only items embued with psychic resonances that could allow easier passage to the material realm but over time this goal has become forgotten and now anything of wealth is brought as an offering to him - This sort of thing seems very common in the 40k universe, where something is done but the reason why it is done is not known (e.g. Adeptus Mechanicus).
Just an idea anyway,
