because, as far as we know, they're the ONLY Chapter with traitor primarch geneseed.
If the practise of using traitor geneseed was widespread, then you'd have a point. However everything points to them being unique in this regard.

You do realise that psychic potential is a mutation right?

there's also the fact that we have absolutely no idea what happened to their chapter or geneseed pre 37th millenium.
I'm just going to go out on a limb and assume that somebody somewhere has fucked around with it.

Is this a very weak defence that relies on maybes and inference?

However due to the fact that the author of the thousand sons book actually apologised for making the connection too obvious, and all the repeated hints in the game/book series (like pre heresy TS colour scheme, the raven of blood prophecy, the corvidae shit ect ect) I'm going to just wait for Dawn of War 3 to explain how the stuff you pointed out was resolved.

>You do realise that psychic potential is a mutation right?

Is pyskism a mutation? Maybe. Is the pysker Gift the result of the Geneseed of the Blood Ravens? No.

The Blood Ravens make it a habit to recruit from worlds with large pysker populations such as Cyrene. This explains the high number of pyskers in their Chapter.

>However due to the fact that the author of the thousand sons book actually apologised for making the connection too obvious, and all the repeated hints in the game/book series

>> No.20657581

>Is the pysker Gift the result of the Geneseed of the Blood Ravens? No.
yeah, it really is.
It and their obsession with knowledge described in the backstory is something that has sparked the interest of the Inquisition.
If it was the planet itself that was producing the Psykers, it would have been blown the fuck up long before it did. Which brings me to my next point
>The Blood Ravens make it a habit to recruit from worlds with large pysker populations such as Cyrene. This explains the high number of pyskers in their Chapter.
forgive me if I'm wrong, but it's never stated anywhere that Cyrene has a large psyker population
and that's a moot point, it got blown the fuck up and it hasn't stopped the high proportion of psykers in the Magpies.
>Red Herrings all of them. You're being mislead!

first off, that doesn't mean that it was the only reason for psychic potential, plenty of other librarians were recruited from other planets.
Jonah is from Calderis (I think) for example and he's ridiculously powerful.
>After that planet was blown didn't you all notice a decline in the Blood Raven Librarian numbers? Only Kyras and Jonah were librarians, the rest were just normal Marines.
that was for two reasons
A) gameplay and story segregation, A fully leveled Jonah was a gamebreaker in Chaos rising. Granted Cyrus and Thule were as well, but can you imagine AN ENTIRE SQUAD OF JONAHS?!??! that would make tzeentch himself shit his pants, even if they had half of Jonahs abilities.
B) we only saw 2 strike forces in Dawn of War 2 (hairgels and Diomedes' and Diomedes' one comprised mostly of hairgels), that's hardly indicative of the Blood Ravens full complement is it?

I think it's less resisting the corruption and more just not being around when the shit hit the fan.

Considering the Corvidae cult got up to all sorts of shit, it might not be unfeasable that a detatchment of 1000 or so was isolated in some ass end of the galaxy and forgotten about.

>Blood Ravens
They are descended from loyalist Thousand Sons who weren't on Prospero with the rest of their brethren when Magnus surrendered himself to Tzeentch. It's not so much that the Blood Ravens were ever founded, but renamed to distinguish themselves from their none loyalist brethren.

But Baldeale was bestest Spase Mairun commander. He used transports and drop pods to get his men close to the enemy instead of making them run across miles of open ground from their stronghold, didn't make all his reinforcements reliant on a single building, built his orbital relay inside his base instead of on a remote hill where anyone could walk up and take it, and knew how to contact his own ship, unlike Thule.

Just as some bonus info, this is from our friends over at Lexicanum. The quote is from Thousands Sons. Oh, Horus Heresy novels...What fun.

>>The psyker Kallista Eris had a vision concerning the fate of the Thousand Sons shortly before the Burning of Prospero. Among other things she mentioned "The Ravens. I see them too. The lost sons and a Raven of blood. They cry out for salvation and knowledge, but it is denied!"12b There are several possible interpretations of these words, but the language used is clearly pertinent to Blood Ravens speculation.

true, they do have the whole
"we're Grey Knights, we ain't gotta explain shit"
thing going for them.

So if the Blood Ravens are descended from Thousand Sons, what other loyalist chapters might trace their geneseed origins to traitor chapters?

Minotaurs are World Eaters.

>> No.20658054

none that we know of, though the Minotaurs might be World Eaters.
It's highlighted with the Ravens because they inherited the TS obsession with knowledge, meaning the suspicious black hole in their history is brought to the forefront quite a lot.

If there are any others out there, they probably were either
a) hunted down by their parent legion.
Even if the Thousand sons are aware of the Ravens, most of them probably don't care, can't do shit or are like Magnus and prefer trolling the Space Wolves.
Hell Ahriman's positively friendly to them.
the World Eaters are just too batshit insane/fragmented to care about the Minotaurs

b) Not possessed with an obsession with knowledge. So they're just another nondescript chapter that everyone puts down to being Ultramarine or, in the case of the minotaurs, Dark Angel/Space Wolf descendant.
You can't really see the (possibly) world eater descendants giving much of a fuck about their heritige can you?

>> No.20658066


Nope. Minotaurs are too busy being the High Lords of Terra's attack dogs to care about anything else. MAIN KILL BURN! MAIM KILL BURN!...For...The Emperor. Yes. That.

What evidence is there pointing to Minotaurs being World Eaters? Just rumours?

They're another Chapter that doesn't know the identity of their primarch, according to Avitus, this is incredibly fucking rare.
They're also Batshit insane melee centric combatants that practise similar tactics to the world eaters, and treat their neophytes in similar ways (though they don't go as far as lobotomizing them) without the expected mutations you would expect from a loyalist primarch that shares similar traits.

Read Rebirth from Age of Darkness. They're the Thousand Sons 4th Fellowship.

Imperial Fists or Raven Guard.
>Crimson Fists
>Black Templars
>Space Sharks
Dark Angels also have some pretty bitchin' successor chapters, but nowhere near as accomplished as those.

>> No.20659153

Rumors, plus IIRC, there were decent sized remnants of loyalists from many of the traitor legions (namely the World Eaters, Emperor's Children and Luna Wolves).
While the Blood Ravens - Thousand Sons thing is a bit far-fetched IMO, there were a large chunk of World Eater loyalists who could have very well formed the Minotaurs post-heresy.
