Citadel Journal character from 2e. Eldar bard, leaves craftworld, returns and finds massacre.
Puts on suit of armor, gets memories of his ancestors, flies around on a sonic jetbike with a cool sword.

We know that not all phoenix lords are the founders of aspect shrines. We know that all phoenix lords are warriors whose identities are in their armor rather than their bodies.

>> No.17128112

Isn't the eldar rune for dire avengers the alchemic symbol of sulfur? Or is it gold?

>> No.17128163

It certainly sounds that way at first. But Eldar who take on the mantle of a Pheonix Lord become that Phoenix Lord in entirety - name, persona, and all. Yrrthilien here seems to retain his name and the grief over his dead Craftworld flavours his persona in the suit, which doesn't fit what we know of Pheonix Lords.

I'd say it could be an early idea or proto-concept of what would eventually become the Pheonix Lords, but the Eldar's fluff was already pretty solid by 2nd edition, which you say this dates from. So I'm not really sure.

>> No.17128189

Yea, Sulfer. But according to Wikipedia, at least, that symbol also stands for "omnipresent spirit of life".


>> No.17128213

Being citadel journal it's on the fringe of acceptable fluff.
Is it possible that donning that armor created a new Phoenix Lord?
We see a similar thing to the Phoenix Lord armor in the Exarch spirit stones, maybe this sort of thing isn't that unusual at all.

>> No.17128235

that's because it triggers the first stage of refinement, the spark of life or something.

>> No.17128237

>Is it possible that donning that armor created a new Phoenix Lord?

Possibly. I mean the first Phoenix Lords had to come from somewhere, there had to be some act that was catalyst which fused their souls and personalities into their suits. Something that traumatic could well be it.

To be honest, it's just a sad, tired joke on the idea that Elves are all weak, useless things because they aren't ridiculously, garishly hyper-masculine. So of course, Elves/Eldar men are either non-existent, or feminised to the point where it's impossible to tell them apart.

Varies. For the most part they (rightfully) believe that all he cares about is the Imperium and would gladly exterminate all other life in the galaxy if he thought it might serve his interests. As far as they're concerned, he's an enemy whose minions can occasionally be useful in that they can be pitted against the other enemies of the Eldar.

Walking time bombs. Lots of power, no control, so for the vast majority of them it's only a matter of time before they blow themselves up or get possessed. Unless they die first, of course - so it's probably no bad thing how brutally the Imperium treats its own psykers. I'd say they're viewed rather contemptuously, though with a degree of caution.

>> No.17128564

why is it so hard to resist chaos if your psyker?

>> No.17128576


Your mind is a beacon in the warp, and all matter of things will be clawing at you. Some will have more willpower than you and you'll be fucked, others will just wait for the one moment you let your guard down

>> No.17128578

Having a gateway to the warp in your head means you're more liable to be noticed by Daemons that dwell within, and also makes it easier for them to get into your head through said gateway whenever you open it to use your abilities.

>> No.17128581

Because there's a little door in your head that leads directly into the warp. There's a big, neon sign on the other side of it saying DAEMONS PLEASE EAT ME. Every time you use your powers you need to open that door to some extent.

>> No.17128591

>> No.17128594


That's why you open the door SO wide all the daemons try to get in at once. They get stuck, nothing can come through the door, and you are invincible!

>> No.17128603

So how can a psyker resist chaos?

>> No.17128606

I'm pretty sure that's the exact philosophy Chaos psykers use.

>> No.17128615

to answer the question
>does a nova cannon hit destroy a craftworld?

fluff-wise: who knows, probably immune due to NO FUN ALLOWED

According to battle fleet gothic rules: A rough estimate of 10 direct hits is needed with the nova cannon to destroy a craftworld (no official model where released except for a journal with some horribly broken stats and ofc I'm using those). This is not taking into account holofields, which would quintuple the hits needed. Taking into account stupendous luck yuo'll still need a minimum of 4 nova cannon shots.

On the other hand, using a chaos fleet you could always fire a linked pair of blackstone fortresses or a planetkiller. Both of these instances yield a shot that "completly obliterates any ship they hit".

>> No.17128618

By only opening the door as much as you need to and having SeƱor Willpower standing inside with a large bludgeon.

>> No.17128624

Well yeah, if something can blow up a planet it can trash a craftworld.

>> No.17128625

Do you have any more stuff from Citadel Journal? They're damn hard to find.

>> No.17128631

Being well trained, and having strong willpower. The former is necessary to avoid drawing the attention of Daemons in the first place - not tapping into the Warp too deeply or for too long, both of which leave the metaphorical doorway to the warp open for long enough that you'll attract attention. They second is necessary should a Daemon attempt to attack and possess you - with enough strength of will, you can force it back through the door and slam it shut. Or at least retain enough of your mind to kill yourself before it manages to get all the way into your head and take over.

>> No.17128635

>> No.17128649

>> No.17128654

So I can assume Khornate daemons are left out of the fray, so it boils down to the other 3 gods ( especially the Lord of Fate) to pssess your body

>> No.17128659

A bolt pistol round to the back of your skull is sufficient resistance.

Eldar Psykers are naturally tuned to bend warpspace and realspace, fiddle around and do lolwarpmagic. Farseers also wear Ghosthelms, which hide their soul from the boogiemen in the warp. A decoy soul of a dead farseer safely inside a soulstone trolling daemonettes to run the other way while the living farseer takes a peek at possibilities where the enemy is going to shoot so that squishy Eldar know when and where to duck and cover.

>> No.17128667

well...uh....good point

funny thing with the bfg rules: the planet killer shot didn't blow up planets, it just exterminated all life on them. Fluff mentioned it making a sun go nova tho. I imagine that's a bit hard to survive without flawless emergency warp out.

>> No.17128668

>> No.17128671

Nope, not at all. Khornate daemons are still made of the warp and they'll grab whatever body they can. It's just that whatever poor bastard ends up being a host for one won't be using their powers again and they'll likely reform into some hulking juggernaut of slaughter.
