"Stranger, I bid you greetings in the name of the Tau.

If you are reading this then you will have encountered one of our messengers drones and therefore a spacefaring race. Soon you will see more evidence of us, this is no cause for alarm.

When you encounter one of our ships or outposts then welcome it. We have much to offer a faithful friend. We are five castes, one people. The earth caste build and manufacture, the air caste pilot and navigate, the water caste liase and arbitrate, the fire caste guard our holdings and defeat our enemies. All are bound to the dream of bringing a new way to the universe.

I hope you will choose to share the culture, technology and protection of the Tau empire.

The one constant in the universe is change, the wise adapt.

Believe in our destiny. "

>> No.11449226

Ours is to be an empire of worlds, not merely of castes or nations, or races or peoples. To simply control the worlds which we claim as our own will not be enough – we must control the paths between them also, or be divided, and so fail.

How ironic it is that as fast as we spread progress and hope throughout the galaxy, the Tyranids spread death and despair. Only united can we hope to stand against them.

"Our tanks were useless. As soon as we broke cover, their battlesuits' heavy guns were locked on to us. I swear it was as though they had someone nearby aiming for them before they shot.

A thousand fibres connect each of us with our fellow Tau and along those fibres our deeds run as causes which come back to us as effects. Everything we must do must be in furtherance of the Greater Good lest we return to the Mont’au, the Terror.

"One of their light walkers carried a weapon of lethal effect. It fired a form of ultra-high velocity projectile. I saw one of our tanks after having been hit by it. There was a small hole punched in either flank - one the projectile's entry point, the other its exit. The tiny munition had passed through the vehicle with such speed that everything within the hull not welded down had been sucked out through the exit hole. Including the crew. We never identified their bodies, for all that remained of them was a red stain upon the ground, extending some twenty metres from the wreck."

You misunderstand, this is Tau space, despite what the Gue’la may claim, and you are welcomed to it as friend. We too have suffered difficulty with the Or’es’la, since it seems they wish no unity.

High INT and WIS would be Craftworld Eldar. They're very clued on on the horrors of the galaxy, and intelligent enough to avoid, imprison, or manipulate them rather than asking if they want to be friends.

Dark Eldar would be high WIS, low INT. They know the same things as the Craftworlders, but their violent, impetuous nature, combined with a desperate need to take slaves and secure themselves a steady supply of souls, leads to them into making poor decisions.

>> No.11449603

Tau have shit for WIS.

Trying to reason with Tyranid. Beating one daemon and claiming to have slain Slaanesh, etc. They simply have no insight in the way the universe works and not a shred of intuition when it comes to the big things. They're all "lol logic and science" (high INT) even when it doesn't make any fucking sense in context (low WIS). Also, weak tiny souls.

Elsar are arguably the highest WIS race around. High-ranking Chaos daemons probably out-WIS most Eldar though.

>Implying the Tau have any idea of the vastness of the stars and the horrors that await them while they are trapped in a tiny subsector fo the galaxy.

The race of man has slaughtered thousands of tiny xeno empires like yours to achieve its destiny. Now we stand alone against an all devouring swarm that has consumed at least one other galaxy, a tide of undead automatons that destroyed this galaxy's first great empire, the immortal legions of the Hell itself that tore the beating heart from the second great galactic empire, and we beat down the forces of rebellion that destroyed the original twin empires of Terra and Mars.

Who are you to speak of vastness to we who number beyond counting? Even if the Tau continue their technological advancement what will it gain you? You will either become like the Necrons who we already battle with, or more likely your machines will rebel against you and drag your fledgling empire down into anarchy. Once we were like you, but we are now much wiser.
