1. Can Chaos ships leave and enter the Eye of Terror at will? (Aside from the Imperium's defenses and whatnot) Or is there more to it then just flying in and out of the Eye to get from one plane to another?

2. Time has no meaning within the Eye right? Meaning if there were two 20 year old guys, one of whom went inside the Eye while the other stayed behind, the one on the outside would be dead from old age in a couple centuries while the one within the Eye would still be 20 years of age?

3. Aside from Chaos Marines and Demons, do ragtag groups of Cultist loyal to the Dark Gods also make their home within the Eye or Terror?

1. There is a pathway into the Warp through the Eye but worlds orbit it, mostly Chaos controlled. Chaos Vessels come out of the center and go through a narrow 'pathway' that allows safe travel, or as safe as Warp Travel can be.

2. Most likely. For the Chaos Space Marines that were in the Heresy, which is nearly all of them, only 100 years has passed in the Warp while 10,000 years have passed outside.

3. Yes, billions of Cultists are within the Eye of Terror however they are servants to the higher worshippers of Chaos.

1. The ships of Chaos are vulnerable to warp storms like any other race's vessels, to leave the EoT safely they've got to find a safe corridor to do so. The Cadian Gate just happens to be the largest and most stable.

2. Or the guy might go into the EoT for what seems like a couple of seconds in real space and return having aged centuries. Lord of the Night said only 100 years has passed from the CSM- that's incorrect, only 100 years have passed for the 10th company of the Night Lords but very different amounts of time have passed for each Marine and Warband.

3. There are probably more Cultists in the EoT than there are CSM (in fact it's almost a certainty that they outnumber the Marines by a great deal).

2. Hmm your right on that one Baron. Time is erratic in the Warp but most often time passes a lot slower in the Warp, centuries can go by there while in Realspace millennia can pass.
