These questions... They are a bit tricky, but must be answered. Fluffmasters, prepare to flex your heads painfully (I hope).
- What is Malal the Chaos god OF?
- Did any Harlequins enter the eye of for any reason?
- What are the names of anyone and everyone who has been banished to the Eye of or disappeared due to unknown reasons\\location?
- Who, in any race, could be considered to be a 'missing avatar"?
- What are the names of all destroyed planets that have been named and noted?
Post your army lists in the ARMY LIST section! Not that hard!
1. Self-destruction. Chaos' innate tendency to destroy itself through its own irrational actions. GW can no longer include him in the fluff because of copyright problems - they screwed over the artist who created him, so he retaliated by claiming intellectual property rights and preventing them from publishing his work - which included the whole concept of Malal as the renegade Chaos god.
2. Hmm...I believe their HQ is the Black Library, which is in the Webway, which is technically the Warp, but most Eldar consider the Eye of Terror exceedingly dangerous territory - tombstone of their lost civilisation and all that, home ground of Ancient Nemesis #1. Solitaires, who have been implied to be the Eldar version of a human pariah, may be able to go in since their soul is in no danger - it's not theirs any more - but they're all crazy anyway.
3. I don't think there's a list, but Uriel Ventris is a notable who was sent into the Eye on a penitent crusade. Captain Leonatos of the Blood Angels delved into a daemon world on the fringe of the Eye to regain the Bloodsword, eventually falling to daemonic possession himself. Crafts that go into the Eye of Terror are essentially flying in the Warp blind, which is why only servants of Chaos can travel safely - otherwise you're skating over Hell without pants on. Going on an Eye of Terror mission is a formal system of suicide.
4. Avatars of what exactly?
5. Again, there's no list, unless you mean maiden worlds specifically. Are these all Eldar questions? Umm...off the top of me head, Istvaan III, Prospero, Nocturne, Equixus (lost to Chaos) Medusa V, (and VI, methinks), Tyran, Prandium, Brontissa, Golgotha, ('nids), Mordax Prime (Orks, renamed Moredakka Prime briefly before being bombed) Adrantis V (Macharius threw a comet at it), Baal, Baal Primus and Baal Secundus (no atmosphere to speak of), Chaeronia (sucked into the Warp, purged by Grey Knights), Tanith, Dolumar IV, Cyrene, Stalinvast.

Come, sons of LO! Kneel before Poodle!
Mr_Wayne: "Some people believe that the World Eaters do not field any ranged weaponry. Those people often die at a distance."
There's some references to Malal somewhere as the God of Hatred (his followers hate everyone indescriminately, including themselves).. However, as poodle said, he's basically the god of cannibalism and self annihilation.There's an Inquisitor reference to a small eldar outpost in the eye with a functioning webway gate. However, if it exists, it's likely little more than a monitoring station. Eldar are smart about avoiding chaos.Originally Posted by ze_poodle
Also, Ordo Malleus Inquisitors sometimes try and go in using nullships to mask them from the warp.. Very few ever come back out again.As Poodle said, Avatar of what..Who, in any race, could be considered to be a 'missing avatar"?
Avatar of the Emperor.. Well, that depends.. Only Thorians and the Ecclesiarchy really buy into that idea. The title 'living saint' however refers to a suspected Imperial avatar, so anyone declared a living saint is a pretty good candidate (just bear in mind the ecclesiarchy are just normal dudes, there's no set way of measuring these things.)
Avatars of khaine.. Well, only eldar can become them, and only eldar would probably want to.
Avatars of the chaos gods.. As far as I'm aware, only Horus ever channeled the power of the chaos gods directly. That's some pretty heavy stuff..
4. Avatar of the Emperor? Well, its considered that Sebastian Thor was an incarnation of the Emperor. In fact, Thorian Inquisitors are still hunting for a new suitable body to act as the avatar of the Emperor.
