The answer to this is essentially, it depends on how far back you are willing to go in the game publications. I haven't read any of the new novels, so I'm not up on the current fluff. (I always preferred to relate to it as game history, not "game ongoing soap opera.) The Realms of Chaos books say this rather directly. They describe a number of other lesser gods though they only name one or two.
In those books the warp is described as a psychic reflection of the material universe. Matter cannot survive there, but the reflections of the emotions of sentient beings collect there. Given enough time and enough concentrated feeling other new gods could emerge.
Curiously, the original authors cast the warp entities as mostly evil but the original descriptions leave a lot of space for other possibilities. A god of tenderness, or love, or gastronomy, or interior decoration, or fast cars etc. etc. could all exist or be germinating in the warp. There was an earlier view that the emperor was in fact a positive chaos God. After he died, he lived on in the warp growing in power as the spirit of humanity. One of the major questions was, what happens when his body finally dies on the golden throne? Is he dead like all other humans or will he be able to be reborn again or will he be the apotheosis of humanity?
I hope that helps!

|Romanov77||I remember reading around that warp we know is only a fraction of that dimension and that there are many formless primordial "things" floating in its tides who barely acknowledge the existence of us mortals.|

I think the conversation got a bit off task lol
I would find it amusing if enough people believed if they did something bad, little deamons appeared in their milk lol

|Brother Lucian||Look at Celestine. Pretty much a daemon of the Emperor inhabiting a flesh puppet, with how she calls down the Emperors will to smite the enemy in a beam of light from on high.|

|ExaltedUrizen||Chaos furies used to be not aligned with any of the chaos gods. From the 5th edition codex: "Furies are made from the souls of mortals that could never decide which of the chaos gods to serve - not because of a genuine love for all fur of them, but from a continuous swaying from the worship of one chaos god to another... When their souls are finally released from their mortal husks, no power claims them - their tragic fate is to be forbidden from entering any of their realms... condemned to be buffeted by the whimsical currents of the immaterium, with no direction and no meaning..." Which makes it sound like you either worship the chaos gods or you don't, and there are no 'in-between' or minor chaos gods that you could worship.|

On top of this, regardless of worship, all mortal emotion feeds the Chaos Powers. So even if the Emperor is receiving some kind of power boost, all four gods are too.

Just look at the acts of faith from the SoBs and the long row of living saints.

|Romanov77||Shouldn't the trillions people worshipping the Emperor cause some massive feedback in the warp?|
