IĀ“m curious about what happened to the eldar because they where such a big and wealthy race and suddenly they actually disappeared in the big lines of history. What I heard in my gaming shop is that the eldar are gaining there previous wealth again and can become the biggest treath of human in the next 1000 year.
DonĀ“t mess with the dicegod
Basically, the eldar used to be the most powerful race around, but became increasingly decadent. Basically, they built a society where every whim or desire could be satisfied in an instant. After a while, they got so kinky and excessive that their highly psychic minds began to leave an impression in the warp, which gradually formed into Slannesh.
The 'birth' of Slannesh tore the centre of the eldar empire apart in a massive warp storm, creating the eye of terror. Slannesh consumed the souls of the vast majority of the eldar race, and staked a claim on the souls of the others elsewhere in the galaxy, ensuring that they would be in eternal agony after they died (eldar are, unfortunately, psychic enough to linger in the warp after death.)
That's why the craftworld eldar wear soulstones to capture their souls after they die.
As for the eldar comeback.. I don't think it's going to happen. They're a dying race, and they live long and breed slowly, so their numbers, as I understand it, are still falling.
Well, the Eldar of Biel-tan (one Eldar craftworld) would like to see a return to the days of the Eldar mastery of the galaxy, and are very militant about it. But their numbers are dwindling the same as all the other Eldar, and I very much doubt they'll do much for its cause.
For being a "dying" race the eldar are appearing in larger and larger numbers across the galaxy. Remember that the Farseers are trying to remake the eldar empire. But also, they see that humans will become the most powerful race in the galaxy, eventaully.
I shall destroy all who stand in my way. The Emperor shall be reborn in me, the Primarchs shall be remade in me. I shall cast down the Dark Gods, the Star Gods shall be consumed just as they consumed their brothers. Those who fell shall be redeemed, those who remained pure shall be rewarded. The Imperium shall regain its power and the Dark Age of Technology will seem like nothing. For I am the Numen and I am coming
the Eldar hope for the future is the birth of the god of death Ymgeath, this consists of the combined phycic presence of the wraithbone cores of all the cradft worlds, the hope is that the god of death will be born in the warp (much as Slannesh was) and destroy the Eldars enemys
As long as lace doilies exist, so too shall the Eldar! :lol:
Actually I'm kidding. I would love to see the Eldar make a stake at returning to their lost glory. Unfortunately for the reasons stated above, I would find it unlikely.

For the last time, there are
NO FEMALE SPACE MARINES!!!!!
deversnik and Imperator, what sources back up your claims there? I haven't heard anything of the sort.
I dont know that the eldar numbers are getting bigger. I would also like to know where this info is coming from because i believe that all of Eldars enemies, which is everyone else is keeping there numbers in check.

urgh, the eldar gods were there before the war in heaven i.e. if he is mentioned then he will not be born... The Eldar are a Dying race, but then again they are not an extinct species as most people tend to think, they just have very small numbers compared to most of the other forces in the galaxy. I mean theirs Craftworld Eldar, Exodite Eldar, Dark Eldar, Harlequin Eldar, and Pirate Eldar... so I mean there are still quite a bit of them floating around the webways...
It's in the Eldar Craftworlds codex, and a number of criticalhit articles that are now, regrettably, unavailable, and therefore unprovable. If it sounds suspicious, it is probably due to the fact that it is mostly outdated, and refers in small part to the Necron C'Tan. Perhaps Deversnik was referring to the Eldar hoping that the Necrons will wipe out the Chaos Gods, which is possible, although exceedingly improbable.Originally Posted by Xerxes
As for what happened to the Eldar? They blew up.
