Default Just a little fluff question...

Since the Tau have no reflection in the Warp, and only skim around the edges making quick jumps to get from place to place, would it be fluffy for a Tau ship to be sucked up by a Warp Storm and dropped of somewhere else? I need it for my faction in the Alliance of Tet Krom.

I don't see why not. It seems like a legitimate happening. Whether or not the Tau can sense it individually, the Warp exists.

After all, we are talking about a universe with chain swords, a machine worshiping cult, humans with redundant organs, and sentient fungi. Why not? :P

Fox is right

The warp is still there whether the Tau like it or not ^^
And if I remember correctly the Tau can turn a little chaotic themselves.
But based on warp science yes they can start in Tau space and end up right in front of Terra itself
*Mind wonders into the possiblities :P* If only ^^

Actually, it is in the Codex that the Tau have little to no warp presence, and as such do not contain psykers in their species.

Given their limited exposure to the Warp, the Tau found it difficult to comprehend the hallucinogenic effects it had on other races and the terrible threat it could represent to psykers. Such talents were a mystery to the Tau as they had no psychic abilities whatsoever, their mind barely even registering in the warp at all.
The Por'la Kais Inquisitor rules even go so far as to give the Tau 'Psychic Null/Blank' rules, mentioning that daemons would have an extremely hard time seeing them as clearly as they would, say, a human or Eldar.

Regarding the Tau's warp presence, they do have one, it's just very, very tiny.
