  1. What are the rules for the alternative heresy?

  2. The Kasper Hauser thing you're missing is that the Thousand Sons did nothing to him. Leman Russ suspected they were using him as a spy which led to the scene where Russ thought he was speaking to Magnus in Prospero Burns through Kasper. In fact he was speaking to no one.

    If it's not explicitly stated in that book, it is heavily implied that chaos was responsible for Kasper.

    The scene in Crimson King supports the fact that the Thousand Sons had nothing to do with Kasper as they didn't even know who he was.
