Welcome to Librarium Online!
The absurdity of this decision baffles me. I leave for a few days and suddenly we have become allies with the dark kin!! Who do I get into contact with in order to reverse this decision and save my beloved race from needless betrayal and embarassment?!

Relax pirate; (and welcome to LO)
The decision was based on two main arguements;
1. Fluff; The Empire wipe out exodite colonies anywhere they find them. Their aim to to wipe out all "xeno Scum" which includes us. They attack us whenever they are able. They are in no way a more desirable ally than the Dark Eldar. In this campaign they are worse. The DE have to defend the webway too, they live in it. Yes they are Evil, yes they are untrustworthy, but not so evil and STUPID to lose their own home just to spite us or raid us. The Portal is in imperial hands. To trust them to give us open access leaves us far more open to betrayal than anything the DE can do to us. Better to take the gate, drive out imperial forces and leave them to defend the other provinces. Are they really going to leave 3 provinces to Orks/Necrons/Tyranids to save one province from us. If things went well for them, they'd deny us the gate and we'd have to fight them anyway...
2. Real life; How many people you know with Tau, Necron, Chaos, Dark Eldar or Ork armies. How many people you know have Space Marines. Who the feck are we supposed to fight if were allied with 80-90% of the opponents?
Well said, Gallowglacht.
Dark Eldar are just our psychotic cousins. Great to have on your side if you ask me. The Harlequins work fine with the both of us, I see know reason why we can't work together in a direct alliance. After all, the domination of our race is our common goal.
Thanks for welcoming me guys. I guess I would just rather us stand on our own two feet than subject myself to cooperation with our lesser siblings (the dark eldar). Well Im gonna go play a game with some freinds right now (both imperium) and hopefully take some names and kick some ash. FOR ELDANESH!!
Think of it this way..never mind the pirate prince is Iyandan not dark kin...

I am so going to start an Iyanden army with the next codex... Not that I like wraith units, but everything gets cooler with pirates I kind of hope that they will loosen up on the whole wraith theme though... I would really like to avoid getting any wraith units at all, and just go for the pure pirate goodness.
And on the CWE/DE alliance, it almost happens daily in the universe. As long as the harlequins are in charge, no one is betraying the other. Not even the DE would dare to do such a thing, as they know that the ways of the harlequins are the only way that leads to long term survival.
they might of made the alliance so they don't have to lose all there men in a battle instead the DE act as a meat shield they run in guns fireing will the Eldar stay behind once the gats taken back kill the DE
or one of the farseers say that this would alter the future in there favor
I suppose that since the Dark Eldar main objectives are obtaining slaves (which the Eldar care nothing about since they are Mon Keigh scum anyway) and defending the Webway (which the Eldar cherish and are utterly dependant upon) the circumstances mean that it makes perfect sense.
Just for future reference can we please keep all medusa V discussions inside "Into the Storm".
For your information teh_pirate the Medusa V eldar voted on the matter so we arent attacking DE in Medusa. Look through the various posts to find the reasons.

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
