I've been hearing a lot of stuff abotu dark elf fluff, and it's pretty wierd. Are dark elves really THAT evil? Like im hearing stuff like their favorite smell is fresh blood...and yeah.
I know they are are undeniably evil to other races, but what about to each other? I kow they'll kill a disobediant soldier without thinking twice, but are they capable of marrying for love or do they do it just to make more babies and get higher in the social ladder?
So, 1to10, 1 being raise a homeless child yourself and give him all your care and love, 10 being cut off said kids fingers and skin him alive while making jokes about it, how evil are dark elves? (lets say the child is a dark elf)
I need to figure this out for myself. Thanks to people who help.

Only if it's spicy. Humie blood is really great for putting on spaghetti.I've been hearing a lot of stuff abotu dark elf fluff, and it's pretty wierd. Are dark elves really THAT evil? Like im hearing stuff like their favorite smell is fresh blood...and yeah.What, you know somebody? I suppose yes but being a lord one could only imagine commoners marrying for love.I know they are are undeniably evil to other races, but what about to each other? I kow they'll kill a disobediant soldier without thinking twice, but are they capable of marrying for love or do they do it just to make more babies and get higher in the social ladder?One, duh. For me, but some REALLY cruel Druchii lords would score 11! Mostly Dark Elves would not randomly torture gutter dak elves alive but there are always exeptions.So, 1to10, 1 being raise a homeless child yourself and give him all your care and love, 10 being cut off said kids fingers and skin him alive while making jokes about it, how evil are dark elves? (lets say the child is a dark elf)Obviously you are no druchii lord. This should all be quite obvious to you at birth.I need to figure this out for myself. Thanks to people who help.
On a serious note, the dark elves are as cruel as they get. Malekith thinks that strife strengthens his people and Menghil Manhide once ate his best friend over an arguement. We even developed a siege cauldron that pours boiuling blood. And where do we get the blood? Unwilling victims, of course.

Just confirming my thoughts. Oh, trust me, I am a Druchii lord. For fluff my Reaver captain feeds a highelf noble and his children cooked high elf mommy, telling them its just meat. Then tells them the truth as he sells them into slavery.
**edit** so i guess you average Dark elf would score about 7.

Evil is a point of view, Sin is a matter of opinion. They think they're good, others think they're bad. Me? I can justify about anything if you give me the time. Killing a fleeing soldier? Its disobedient, its bad for morale, and its a blatant affront to the honor of the commander. Assassination of another elf? Politics, business is business, or for the glory of Naggaroth. I can give you more if you like. I'm a devoted son of the Hag, a follower of Slaanesh (shhh...don't tell anyone), and I do enjoy the taste, scent, and feel of blood. Sight depending on the situation. Point is, I don't think they're evil, they're just who they are.

I would say Dark Elves are as evil as they possibly can be. But it isnt evil in the same sence as Hordes of Chaos, they are mindless, vicous monsters bent on death & destruction. Where as Dark Elves are intelligent beings and a 'civilised' race. Against eachother, they use evil when & where it benefits them, in any amount neccisary. Against the enemy, they use evil not only because it benefits them, but also for fun..
A quote in the back of the army book is a good example:
"We are the most civilised race in the world. We have more exquisite ways to kill than any other." ... next to the picture of the noble with his little collection (pile) of High elf heads

Ok, thank you for your replies, just makin sure. If a moderator sees this he can close it.
Hmm.. Are the dark elves evil?
I mean. Were the Romans really much worse?
Or the Mongols..
Dark elves are pretty merciless, but hey, their society works, doesn't it? All those slaves keep everything running. Their leaders are despotic and power hungry, but that just means the stupid or weak get weeded out quicker (not like those inbred high elfey nobles.) They have a brutally efficient army and a state religion which keeps everyone in line and whose priests and priestesses make amazing battlefield soldiers as well.
Who cares about good and evil. Dark elf society probably isn't nice to live in, but hey, it works.
Sorry.. Didn't notice you'd finished and wanted it deleted. Now I can't find the post deletion button. :tongue:

Naggaroth is highly organised and militaristic society, they ask what gods like Khaine and Slaanesh can do for them rather than resorting to blind worship. Human slavery is vital to their economy and the High Elves denied them their birthright as masters of all Elves.
-Children are desensitised to violence at an early age by festivals such as the â€śHarvester of Soulsâ€? and that time of quintessential murder and mayhem â€śDeath Nightâ€?
-Dark Elves are clearly indoctrinated by propaganda (see the army bookâ€™s Founding of Naggaroth section)
- Most Dark Elves do some form of millitary service and they appear to have social stigma against breaking a promise. Though telling a lie to save one's skin is a different matter.
Malekith and Morathi are evil, your average Druchii lives the lifestyle that the Witch King created!
Ok, thanks. Please, no more advice guys.
