[ERROR] No.21373786 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

The Eldar 'end-game' scenario is the awakening of a new god, Ynnead, to destroy Slaanesh. This is done by collecting souls into the Infinity Circuits of craftworlds. Eldar don't reproduce fast or well due to various reasons.

What's stopping the Eldar from using the Dark Eldar as fuck factories to produce babies, who they can then kill for additional souls. Both Eldar types win big time and it doesn't involve extinction.

>> No.21373811


Because Mystic Mumbo Jumbo. At best, you'd end up with a God of Baby Factories, who would be eaten by Slaanesh.

>> No.21373833

Babies have tiny souls barely worth making. It takes a long, rich, cultivated, or fanatical/pure/powerful/destined life to get big souls.

>> No.21373874

Well, the Eldar will naturally be turned of by the idea as soon as they hear the words "fuck factory" due to ethical concerns. Plus, they still won't reproduce fast enough, can't capture enough DE to start the rape industry, and I'm pretty sure a soulstone is needed to transfer a soul into the circuit. Generally, the idea will just go nowhere.

sounds like mary sues have delicious souls

>> No.21373925

Even if soulstones can't be used by Dark Eldar, the normal Eldar could simply copy the Dark Eldar's cloning techniques. Or is there something I'm missing?

>> No.21373929

Recycling! They should re-use soul stones.

This is a big business opportunity. Industrialize this whole god-thingy process, streamline it, full-time R&D on this. Find what is the most effective age/soul power ratio. Get the backwater exodite rednecks in on this too. Invent new drugs to make fucking more pleasurable to entice more Dark Eldar into the business venture.

>> No.21373988

The invitro techniques used by the DE are fueled by pain much like their regeneration tech. The CWE are very against this as it feeds Slaanesh and is very immoral.
Unfortunately, Eldar can't even produce soulstones, they only get them from croneworlds. At that point they won't even need DE though. Plus, they can't into capitalism. Fuck, now I want a rogue trader to actually try this.

/tg/ ~ killing babies

>> No.21374012

soulstones are incredibly difficult to make
you'd need to waste incredible amounts of efforts creating millions of soulstones, each of them only containing either an immature, useless soul that doesn't give a fuck about killing Slaanesh (making Ynnead much less effective) or plain fucked-up dark eldar souls.

>> No.21374023

dark eldar souls are shitty cuz slaanesh is constantly licking them so that's why cuz they need to torture people cuz it invigorates their little black souls

>> No.21374051

they should just make a new god for shit and giggles, doesn't matter what they create

Still doesn't solve the problem of long gestatition and slow maturation.

>> No.21374087

Wouldn't it be kinda pointless to awake this new god? By now slaanesh has mindraped the vast majority of the eldar AND countless other mortals.
How could he be more powerful when all you feed him with are the souls of the few remaining eldar?
That is assuming the other chaos gods do not give a fuck and are all like "Slaanesh plz go".

>> No.21374108

Mostly because the Dark Eldar are exponentially more powerful than the Craftworld Eldar and have no interest whatsoever in the whole Ynnead outcome.

>> No.21374266

they're exponentially more powerful on a strictly military and economical scale.

They're much less powerful regarding all things psychic and magical. Their psychic engineering is limited to weaponry and rejuvenating stuff, as far as we know. Practical stuff.

Human souls can survive inside soulstones, right?

Because that's human thinking OP.

we don't know.

The fluff suggests that each soulstone is designed to work on only one person.

>> No.21374353

The average Dark Eldar has turned into a kind of psychic vampire over the millennia, so I imagine that would have an effect on any babies made.

>> No.21374430

We know they can temporarily survive in Wraithbone.

Because Dark Eldar souls go straight to Slaanesh - and I guess the same would go of their kids?

What if you used Dark Eldar cloning devices to clone Craftworld Eldar? Then used those souls to go into the Infinity circuit?

They arent clones theyre tube babies. Pesumably if you were to give them a soulstone they could be raised as regular CE instead of being reared on death and suffering.

Presumably, the god who's sole portfolio is "Fuck.You.Slaanesh." is going to have an advantage over Slaanesh- think a wedge splitting a log, the log is a lot more impressive in many ways over the wedge, but the second splits the first in half with no damage to itself.

>The Kabalites of the Last Hatred have a morbid interest in the forbidden arts. Though they outwardly seek to master the transition between life and death, their aims are far grander than those of petty necromancers. Some say the ‘Haters’ seek to transcend mortality entirely, others that they wish to exterminate the Eldar race and enslave whatever entity is born from the ashes. Madness this may seem, but any who have looked into their eyes will never truly dismiss their ambition. Certainly they prosecute their kin-strife against the Craftworld Eldar and their Exodite kin with unmatched fury.

>Originally famous for their pain-farms and a talent for keeping their wretched captives alive indefinitely, the quest to drain every last drop of suffering from their ‘clients’ has led them into infamy. In recent decades the Kabal have mastered the technique of permanently binding a soul to the cadaver from which it would usually depart at the moment of death.

>The carnival of corpses that accompanies them to war is merely a distraction to draw attention from something far more sinister, for down in the pits under their stronghold, the Kabal practices ever more complex rites. Here the Kabalites unpick the tapestry of life, studying the nature of mortality in gardens hung with wax-skinned undead arranged in artful but unnatural poses. Should they ever succeed in their quest, the lines between life and death may be irrevocably blurred.

Haters gonna kill everyone.

'Parently not.

Slaneesh represents one aspect of sapience. The drive for sex, food, perfection, the will to achieve skill and mastery.
Ynnead represents doom.

Though he's established to hate sorcery of the biggest defining bits of fluff about khorne is he doesn't care how the blood is spilled or who spills it, only that its spilled in the first place. Using sorcerors to kill people would probably piss him off a bit, but more skulls is more skulls

The Dark Eldar are, pretty much, a different species all together from Exodites.

While Craftworld Eldar keep warlocks and psykers, Deldar have shunned them for millenia. (Attracts Slaanesh's attention)

So, the Dark Eldar have evolved into a more physical version of Eldar. Posessing reflexes and strength far greater than vanilla Eldar but from stunted to almost none psychic potential.

So it's possible that Deldar souls just don't "function" with soulstones.
