Truth is not trolling.

FFG material is pretty clear on what happens to the humans under the Tau.

I'm aware of that. I'm also aware there was no TRACE of their grimderpiness in the first codex. It's changed over time, it's true. And yes, in any other setting, the Tau would be the Evil Empire. This is 40k though and by that standard, they're the good guys, mostly.

The biggest thing I hate about 40k is that IF there WAS a 'good' race (as the Tau originally were), they are either hated by the fanbase, until they change, or they are stamped out by everyone else because, "LolImperium."

>>24436737
TIDF is an idiot. I'm fully aware the Tau are a grey-area race. Next to the rest of 40k though, who would make black holes look like slightly dim evenings, they're pretty damn good.

I've never seen JACK from FFG about the Tau; last I checked, they were still busy wanking off over the Imperium of Man. 'Brainwashing' is a relative term; according to the latest codex, the cultural assimilation is gradual, much like how the Roman Empire assimilated its conquered territories. The Greater Good being 'garbage' is a matter of opinion, as on its base level, giving a fuck about others before yourself, isn't such a bad thing. It only gets iffy when you are chosen to be sacrificed for the greater good, as opposed to choosing it yourself. This DOES happen in the Tau Empire, but not nearly as much as you might think, as the line between choosing and having it chosen for you is often blurred (this IS 40k after all). Sterilization is NEVER mentioned in the codex and it is EXPLICITLY STATED that the Tau don't use 'cannon fodder', not even their DRONES. Humans are adaptable, so it's most likely they are used as auxiliaries by the Tau, in areas they need more numbers. If they're seen in danger, it's likely because the Tau took the losses FIRST and thus, need the backup from the human auxiliaries.

The only thing the Tau do NOT trust humans with, is facing the Imperium. Which is completely justified, as if you've turned coats once, there's little to say it won't happen AGAIN.

I'm tentatively accepting of the new fluff... It still feels like the Tau for the most part, just pushed to extreme measures. It's never stated if the students VOLUNTEERED for stasis, or if they were forced into it and the Earth Caste are stated to be frantically working on better containment for the ion weapons and such, especially as it's still made clear the Tau don't like losing valuable troops un-necessarily, but it seems likely they needed the extra firepower of the new weapons NOW, rather than having the luxury of waiting for the development to reach a point where they are 'safe'.

Also, it's interesting to note that all the pieces I've seen that mention cross-caste breeding say it is 'strongly discouraged' by the Ethereals; not forbidden. I mean, that's as-good-as, when it comes to the Ethereal Caste, but still, it's not forbidden. Think of it like a mixed-race couple during the 50s or 60s; you'd be treated like scum, most likely, but there's no actual LAW against it...

All in all, I kind of like the parallel drawn between the Tau now and Humanity during the Great Crusade. Both races are steam-rolling all before them with little real resistance that they cannot overcome with some effort; both are UTTERLY CONVINCED of their destiny and righteousness; both have leaders they follow without question... Like the IoM, they could end up as a real hell-hole, but Eldrad's endorsement of them (1st Tau Codex, page 61) makes me think they could be better... What they really need, I feel, is tempering and humbling. With the IoM in the galaxy already, that could well happen. If it does and they survive, then the Tau might actually have a chance to become a truly 'good' race.

And that chance is why I play them. Dim though it may be, they represent one of the few, flickering lights of hope in the 41st millennium.

Confirmed for contradictory. There are at least two other sources, including White Dwarf and the Tau codex that state (without propaganda, in the case of the Codex) that the Tau allow religion and local custom to continue un-impeded, so long as it does not interfere with efficiency.

With this open contradiction in mind, we have to take all OTHER evidence presented in the same segment, with a pinch of salt. Dissidents being 'disappeared'? That's confirmed, so I'll admit you have a point there. That's not good, but see my comment here >>24437207 regarding the Tau needing tempering and being forced to extreme measures by the universe they live in.

Sterilisation is not mentioned within the codex, or anywhere else I've looked, thus until evidence is presented otherwise, the Tau have to be considered innocent. Lack of contrary evidence is not proof, after all.

Kindly note that I've read MOST FFG books, but not Deathwatch, as I have never entertained the idea of playing a Space Marine-focused game.

Imperial religion is very inefficient if you ask me. So I don't find it surprising that the Tau decided to suppress it. It's not very contradictory. The older fluff about the Gue'vesa has them on separate colonies and not directly under the influence of the Tau and it was told by an in-universe witness.....very reliable. The segment I presented are about Gue'vesa living directly under Tau authority and so they are handled more strictly.

>Sterilisation is not mentioned within the codex

Doesn't need to be. The Codex does nothing to dispel or support the claim. Deathwatch on the other hand gives examples of the practice and it is enough. They are guilty case closed!

>but not Deathwatch, as I have never entertained the idea of playing a Space Marine-focused game.

Then read it. It's one of the few sources that explore the Tau dark side. You're missing out.

>Eldrad's endorsement

Eldrad believes in them. Seriously, it makes him as naive as them.

Unlike Eldrad the Inquisitor in the Tau Codex knows where the Tau are heading.

>the Tau might actually have a chance to become a truly 'good' race.

Becoming what they hate and fought against is their destiny, Look at them slid on the Grimdark meter. Eventually they will be the Imperium. That's very fitting, I say.

What exactly about it is so inefficient? The religious practices involve venerating the Immortal Emperor in all things, trusting in him and only him, abhorring the alien, the mutant and the heretic... I guess the 'abhor the alien' thing kinda gets in the way, but the rest of the IoM's inefficiency comes from the utter DISASTER that is the administratum, as well as not understanding a damn thing about their own technology; not to mention the sheer SIZE of the Imperium makes it IMPOSSIBLE to govern centrally, which is what they are trying and failing to do.

>Doesn't need to be. The Codex does nothing to dispel or support the claim. Deathwatch on the other hand gives examples of the practice and it is enough. They are guilty case closed!
See >>24437485 The prior contradictions throw the rest of the testimony into doubt. One statement is contradicted, one is supported, one is neither contradicted, or supported and thus should be ignored. This is legal practice 101 here.

>Then read it. It's one of the few sources that explore the Tau dark side. You're missing out.
Duly noted; I'll give it a flip though when I can borrow my friend's copy, but keep in mind, it's not an official source, but a licensed one; thus, contradictions therein are superseded by official codexes and the like.

Pic related. That's opinion and nothing else. Eldrad has got a few millennia on the inquisitor, in terms of experience, so I'm more inclined to go with his testimony. If you insist though, both should be discarded.

>Becoming what they hate and fought against is their destiny, Look at them slid on the Grimdark meter. Eventually they will be the Imperium. That's very fitting, I say
Do you write for Games Workshop? If not, then you're in no real position to say what the Tau's 'destiny' is. This is all opinion-based, yet again.

>Seeing that flickering hope crushed would serve the Grimdark well but not before revealing the rotten lies behind it!
More opinions.

I'll fully admit I use opinions too, but unless I am very much mistaken, I at least point out when they ARE opinions, or at the very least, don't try to present them as facts, as I do with my ACTUAL facts.

>>24437896
I admitted that was propaganda. The new Tau Codex however, makes statements regarding the Tau treatment of local religion and custom, without the filter of propaganda.

Again, I don't hold up the Tau to be 100% good and pure and noble; I only say they are, in comparison to everyone else. See my early remarks about them needing tempering and humbling, before they can be considered objectively 'good'.

Maybe it makes her feel uncomfortable? Maybe there's some trauma in her past that she hasn't been able to confront yet? Maybe it just makes you feel wrong inside to go down on a girl and you can't explain why?

Sex is such a personal and fluid thing - it seems shitty to make these sweeping statements like "If you don't let your partner fuck you in the ass then you are a bad and selfish person". Life doesn't work like that, dude.

>What exactly about it is so inefficient?

It stands in the way of them fully embracing the Greater Good and keeps a door open form to return to the Imperium. That's why the Tau hesitate to use them against the Imperials.

Getting rid of it is very efficient for the purposes of the Tau and so they did.

>See

I will see nothing!

There is no contraction. Alien customs and traditions that are not in the best interest of the Tau are removed. That's the case with the Imperial religion.

The only evidence we possess that the Tau tolerate Imperial religion, comes from a traitor. Very devious and THIS should be taken with a grain of salt. Deathwatch material which is told by the omniscient narrator should be seen as more credible because that guy has no reason to lie no gun pointed at his head.

>Opinions

Just my opinions to respond to your opinions. You think the Tau will become something, I think they will fail miserably.

>I admitted that was propaganda. The new Tau Codex however, makes statements regarding the Tau treatment of local religion and custom

It makes mention how the Tau remove those customs that they deem inefficient. As I said before, Imperial religion is very inefficient and dangerous.

>See my early remarks about them needing tempering and humbling, before they can be considered objectively 'good'.

They need hardening and to develop harsh(er) ruthlessness.

Or else they ain't gonna survive. Nothing good in this galaxy can survive.

So why does society get so up in arms about a man who doesn't want to lick a pussy? For various reasons it's pointed out to be not hygienically equivilant to giving a blow job (actually it's more dangerous to GET a blow job than give one).

I still see a LOT of opinions here and not a lot else. The Tau deal with the risk of re-defection by removing Gue'vessa from areas they may encounter the Imperium, wherever possible. This also serves the purpose of splitting them up and weakening the chance of forming cohesive rebellion cells.

Likewise, the Tau Codex evidence is ALSO told from an impartial narrator's point of view and as I said, it is an OFFICIAL source, rather than a licensed one.

Come back when you can produce something conclusive, as opposed to a single, third-stage source that is demonstrated to hold a contradiction.

I like that they scaled down Tau tech. They had diesel powered battlesuits during 2nd sphere expansion, V-model suits use fission power and as of late M41, their military fusion reactor prototypes are still a little wonky and Earth Caste is looking into radioactive materials for power sources, so it's likely fission power is still common. Their ion weapons subject the user to ionizing radiation and can prove fatal in months.

They lost their jump drives and utilize sub-light transports and can't figure heads or tails about Imperial warp drives. 1st sphere expansion took 1500 years, 2nd took 3000 years.

The list goes on. They're not the "give a few thousand years and they'll rule the galaxy", they're the sorry little empire with wonky tech that fights tooth and nail for their place in the sun and the price of this struggle is their individuality, which is sacrificed to the Greater Good.

>> No.24439235

>>24438874
Actually, they still have their jump drives; that's what sparked the third sphere of expansion, iirc and I'm pretty sure there was an implication that the XV8s have a safe power source... Not sure on that one though. I'll have to re-read the codex.

My personal theory is the next logical step for the Tau is something like superstring theory, insofar as FTL technology goes. It'd suit their nature as a tightly-packed empire, with a dense star cluster at its core.

Right. Though in the old fluff they got them from an alien ship orbiting their world, so they had jump drives from the get-go, but now they expanded slowly. As I remember it, before warp drives invented in M18, humans spend generations to travel to the furthest colonies.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=1oiom7L3Uj8#t=16s

I don't know about Tau FTL. Necrons didn't have large scale FTL until they invaded the webway, and they expanded across the galaxy at sub-light speed. Then again, the Tau got access to warp drives early on, so it's possible they find a way to make something workable out of them. Maybe, by implementing Necron null field style tech, they could strengthen the barrier between real space and the warp ahead of the ship, meaning the ship can lunge faster and with more force towards it and gain more distance.

>> No.24439949

>>24439633
There's mention of 'impulse engines' in the new codex, which is what sparked the Second Sphere.

Personally, I'm still a proponent of superstring manipulation; slipping through the fractal, gravetic pathways formed between stars, in some kind of slipspace. Not as versatile as the warp, as the pathways are eternally set in the structure of the galaxy, but faster than what they have...

Well the question's academic anyway, as for now, they're stuck with jump drives. And personally, I am still hoping their Third Sphere of Expansion leads the Tau into a tempering, humbling defeat and forces them to take a look at themselves, hopefully finding their flaws in method and spirit and purging them, before they try again. The Tau were envisioned, after all, as a young, hopeful, 'good' race in 40k's blackness-so-dark-it-makes-black-holes-look-simply-'a bit dim'. I'm hoping for a return to that design ethos; a hope, but one so faint that it's almost laughably pathetic and naive. Call me crazy, but I kind of liked that about them, regardless of people bitching how they 'don't fit the setting'. Without a pinprick of light, I kind of can't bring myself to give a crap about 40k. Caring about a setting where the very rules of the universe say, "Lolno you lose nothing good ever triumphs EVER stop trying to have any kind of hope drown in the ocean of grimdark shit," seems rather pointless to me.

> I am still hoping their Third Sphere of Expansion leads the Tau into a tempering, humbling defeat and forces them to take a look at themselves

According to ze fluff the Tau are rarely slowed and not truly stopped. If there is gonna be change in the Tau, it's gonna be from the inside because the other faction are pretty tied up with the Black Crusade.

I could be wrong. Imotekh's warpath could ravage the Tau. His forces is already moving towards them, But it's unlikely. The great Phaeron has a bone to pick with the Ulramarines.

So in all probability gonna put Farsight as the agent of change in the Empire. Eldrad said that the Tau will conquer the darkness within them. Who represents this darkness? Farsight or the Ethereals?

£15 says it's something less definite than that. The Ethereals DID save the Tau from mont'au, remember? The 'darkness' Eldrad speaks of is likely a perversion of the Greater Good that the Tau seem to be falling towards. If they're not brought up sharply, they may fall into the whole 'the ends justify the means' trap of sacrificing morality for the 'greater good'.

The Tau WERE stopped once. That's why they brought O'Shovah out of stasis; in the wake of the Damocles Gulf, there was a lot of concern and doubt about their until-then-supposed manifest destiny to unite the stars. Aun'va made the choice to bring Farsight out of stasis, to give the Tau people a hero to rally behind, to re-gain their confidence. It was probably too soon for their setback to have the required effect and it was just a setback, not a true defeat. The Tau aren't Orks though; they CAN be beaten. But yeah, it's going to have to be internal AND external, to truly make a difference.

Perhaps if Aun'shi was to become Master of the Undying Spirit..? He certainly seems like the type to be able to make the necessary changes. After all, in his own words...
>I have taken great pains not to laugh at the actions of aliens, nor to weep at them, or to hate them, but to understand them.

>Doesn't that sound like the words of someone humble and wise enough to keep the Tau on the path of righteousness? The Greater Good, rather than the Lesser Evil?

Sounds exactly like the Sio't meditations the Tau abandoned after encountering the Orks and Tyranids. Aun'shi seems stuck in the idealistic mindset that the Tau themselves have outgrown.

>The Ethereals DID save the Tau from mont'au, remember?

Or did they?! The Tau are still as violent and aggressive as they were before. The Ethereals are just holding back the darkness the so called ''Mont'au''. Without them, the Tau regress to their warlike and savage nature.

Kin strife, savagery, and meaningless bloodshed this what the Eldar would consider darkness. Manipulation of lesser races, ''the end justified the means'' mentality, and ruthlessness are things natural to the Eldar I doubt they would consider it darkness. If anything they will consider it maturity.

Sometimes idealism is what is required. Tau are short-lived; is it better to fall and hope to endure at the expense of your very soul, or to burn half as long and twice as bright?

Personally, I'd hold onto that ideal. But then, I've always been an idealist. Besides, the Tau kept their 'idealism' after meeting the Orks; they were one of the first races they encountered! It took meetings with some of the other races of the galaxy, such as the 'nids, Humans, Dark Eldar, Chaos and so on to force them to re-consider their position.

I'm still a great fan of Aun'shi; he represents the Tau and the Ethereals at their very best, in my honest opinion and if he IS headed for the Farsight Enclaves, whatever happens is going to be EPIC.

Sure, but they were still sub-light speed. Even with jump engines it takes a long time to travel from system to system, so much even, that troops are transported in stasis. As far as I remember the codex.

Though through stasis and drugs, they can live thousands of years. And I doubt average Imperials live that long either. It wasn't long when a person in his 50's was old as fuck and even living into your 30's was commendable. Depends on the planet, sure, but plenty of people live in hive worlds, where space is tight, nutrients aren't exactly up to code and toxins are everywhere. Imperium also has plenty of worlds in low-tech feudal status. Life in such places wouldn't be easy either.

I see new Tau as more of a "only way for us to survive is to expand far and wide, so even if we lose 99% of our worlds, there's still Tau out there somewhere to continue our legacy." Thus serve "the greater good", individuals are just parts of the machine, the whole must survive.

I don't got the book, but by Lexicanum they're capable of interstellar travel without the warp, not that they're capable of FTL travel. Many races travel between stars without FTL, it just takes a very long time.

Even Necrons have capability to cross great distances in the blink of an eye, but these methods are not viable as a starship drive. They can't move fleets reliably at FTL speeds without the webway.

Their basic guns are up to part with most squad support weapons of other races (Imperial/Chaos HB, Ork big shoota, etc.), carbines have auxiliary grenade launchers, they can use markerlights to order missile strikes and having specialized gear makes the not so tough and protected troops more viable targets. Better to keep the enemy shooting at your mobile and though battlesuits and tanks instead.

But on the other hand, not having like gun drones with missiles, plasma, fusion blasters and burst cannons to give fire warrior squads options is a pretty dick move. But then again, 30" of S5 ain't too shabby either, considering it costs less than 2 guardsmen.

Personally, I would use an internal problem with integrated races. But not a "hurr revolt and betrayal durr", we had enough of this shit everywhere in the setting already. I'm thinking of integrated race going actually further than tau in their ideology. In a future where tau aren't the majority any more, other races would want to play a more decision-making role : human and kroot because numbers, Nicassar and other psychic races because expertise tau can't have, some of the advisor races ... The important thing to make it interesting would be that they wouldn't ask it because of some boring power greed (which can have a place of course) but because they really think they are greater good enough now.

And tau have to answer those expectations. Was greater good just pretty words ? Even if they were pure lies, they have been told so many time that they have really became truth.
