The dark eldar don't worship slaanesh, they fear him right? They kill people for slaanesh so slaanesh doesn't kill them right? I was just wanting to make sure. Also what is the relationship between eldar and dark eldar? Do they hate each other, don't care about each other, allie with each other? Relating to the above question, if eldar were fighting chaos, what side would dark eldar choose?
After the fall, slaanesh promised the eldar that fled through the webway (dark eldar), not to eat their sould when they died, if they in return were grusome enough. Thats the whole reason why dark eldar raids for slaves, simply th torture them to death hoping that slaanesh find them grusome enough not to eat their soulds when they die.The dark eldar don't worship slaanesh, they fear him right? They kill people for slaanesh so slaanesh doesn't kill them right?The eldar hate the dark eldar, because they fear that the actions of the dark eldar will lead to another fall, creating another chaos god. Forthermore, the eldar finds the actions of the dark eldar distasteful, to saythe least. The dark largely sees the eldar as uncollected slaves, flying around on craftworlds. Especially psykers is in high esteem amongst haemies, so the eldar might even be targeted more by DE raiders if they left their craftworlds. However, DE and CWE is able to work together, if under harliquin leadership.Also what is the relationship between eldar and dark eldar? Do they hate each other, don't care about each other, allie with each other?The dark eldar would lurk behind a hill nearby, and attack whoever is left after the battle. But if the DE had to choose side, I believe they would choose the eldar.Relating to the above question, if eldar were fighting chaos, what side would dark eldar choose?
U think dark eldar would ally with the eldar? Don't u think that would piss off slaanesh? :confused:
Also i just thought of something. Isn't abbadon supposed to be some kind of prophisized warrior. Perhaps the other chaos god to be created will be abbadon?
i doubt that highly, considering abbandon is (said in codex) going to become a deamon prince. he only hasnt become a deamon prince yet becaues he wants to (not quite sure on this) destroy the imperium. im hoping a fluff master can clear this up. my memory of chaos warrior fluff (basically regarding there characters) is very sketchy...
I thought that both the eldars hate the chaos god but especially slaanesh and that CWE want to kill him while the DE kinda chickened out and decided that if they could please it then they would be allowed to survive or something like that. At least thats what it says in the old codex (not exactly but thats what I remember from it.)
And wasnt slaanesh created by the evil desires of man?
http://uk.games-workshop.com/darkeldar/torturer/ It gives an interesting perspective on the entire affair.
Both the Eldar and DE fluff indicate that Slaanesh was born out of the hedonism of the Eldar. I don't know if the story is consistent with other fluff, but it almost sounds as though the DE are trying to be hedonistic and vicious enough for Slanneesh to be satisfied leaving them alone while they enslave and kill the lesser races that are more easily corrupted. I gather the hope is that once the lesser races have been subjugated or destroyed, that they will be able to defeat Slaanesh.
Actually, both Eldar are cursed with She Who Thirsts (aka Slaanesh) slowly eating away their souls. Most of the Eldar were wiped out when She Who Thirsts was born, but there were two groups which survived. The Eldar are those who had forsaken the old ways of the Eldar and flown off on craftworlds to become interstellar prudes. They now avoid the hunger of Slaanesh by following rigid codes of conduct and using Spirit Stones and the Infinity Matrix to keep their souls away from Slaanesh's thirst. The Dark Eldar have continued killing, torturing and generally being evil, and they found a rather different way to protect their souls from Slaanesh - they reside in the Webway, which seems to very significantly reduce the effect of Slaanesh. They also keep their soul energy high by consuming the souls of others.
I think that the Eldar and Dark Eldar are kind of comparable to followers of variations of two different subsects of the same religion. They hate each other and would kill each other gladly, but I think there is some degree of mutual respect underneath all of that. I don't think the Dark Eldar would particularly care about Eldar fighting against Chaos in general, but I think they would be quite quick to come to the aid of the Eldar if given a chance to strike against Slaanesh.

Going off topic for a second, Abbaddon chooses not to ascend to daemonhood because he wants to do what Horus failed to do. That and if he kills the emperor then he ascends to a daemonlord greater than the current chaos primarchs.No, the eldar created Slaanesh. The final catalyst that brought about this was the final sacrifice of lust. (The sacrifice is ironicaly asdrubal vect himself, he half-proudly bears the scar.)And wasnt slaanesh created by the evil desires of man?
Between the eldar and de, the de hate the eldar (includes all craftworlds and harlequins) and would see them die before ever helping them. The de view them as weak because they fear that which they once indulged. Of all the normal eldar, the Saim-Hann (sam-hayn not same han) hate the de the most since they remain the only craftworld that follows most of the codes of old.The de made a deal with Slaanesh, if they torture and cause enough lust/pleasure in their lives then Slaanesh will not devour their soul when they die. Since the de were looking for a way to not have their souls devoured and at the same time not be like the eldar, they agreed without a second thought. They fear Slaanesh only for as little they have done as far as the pact goes... :cool:The dark eldar don't worship slaanesh, they fear him right?
