Dark Elves thread.
>>80443881Describe your setting's Dark Elves.
>>80443881Sexism to the degree of the Roman Republic, except in reverse. Female/female love is the only true love, and men are just for breeding stock. A woman being submissive is "being manly".
Do you actually play a dark elf somewhere or is this just another waifudump?
>>80443977There's nothing that inherently sets a dark elf apart from a light elf, it's entirely cultural. When humans ended up colonizing the land the standard elves tried to maintain what power they could and stay peaceful, while the dark elves became goth and try to undermine human occupation.
>>80444126Not OP, but I just started a Dark Elf army. Only have some witches, bolt throwers, corsairs, and sorceresses at the moment, but I'm placing an order at my LGS tomorrow.
>>80443977>Describe your setting's Dark Elves.Angsty brooders who cut themselves to feel anything at all.
>>80444155Nice. I run the rpg 4e, don't know how I'd feel if someone comes to me wanting to play a druchii. Although the laurelorn elf in our group uses some dark elf blades that he took from an khainite assassin that they defeated.
>>80443881Nagarythe Shadow Elf Chad here.Dark of mein but loyal of heart.Dr*chii fags BTFO.
>>80443881Drow are worst dark elves.
>>80443977Dark elves is what other elves call uneducated and poor elves, who have to work for a living under the sun.
>>80444233They'd have to be pretending to be a high elf, or you'd need to run an evil campaign. There are HElves who have dark hair, and the player could pretend to be from a colony somewhere.Also, there is at least one regiment of Dark Elves running around as mercenaries.
more like fart elves.
who's best; drow, druchii or dunmer?
>>80444848Dunmer > druchii >>>>>>>> some shitty fapbait art not related to any setting or system > drow.
>>80443881I love Morathi
>>80444946All Hail Morathi, The Shadow QueenConqueror of Har Kuron, Oracle of Khaine, and She Who Kicks Sigmar's Balls.
>>80444918That is some serious drow hate. But why?Was it Drizzt? FR faggotry? Spiders? Became too popular? All the fapbait coomers?What broke you?
>>80445047Not him but they're just boring.
>>80444968How will Sigcuck ever recover?How will anyone stop her from winning?How has she single handedly made AOS interestng?
>>80445047Boring, dumb, illogical, overdone, lewded and flanderized into one-dimensional waifus by this board, and the attempts to make more and more good drows and good drow societies only makes it worse.They were cool villains in earlier editions, but you see less and less of that.
>>80444968Not really a fan of AoS but I do like the new Morathi stuff.
>>80445051Could you compare and contrast them against some other sort of dark elves that you do find interesting? Like where drow suck, but other dark elves are awesome?
>>80445064I hope we get more of Morathi in future broken realms.
>>80445064>How has she single handedly made AOS interestng?I wonder.
>>80445097That's one reason.The other reason is that she successfully tricked SCE a few times and it's really entertaining seeing SCEfaggots seethe.
>>80445097>>80445117This.Also all the other gods either lucked into godhood or were born as gods.Also she has actually shown character development.She's not just a 2 dimensional character like Sigmar/Nagash/Archeon/Teclis etc>>80445082Same, want to see where he story goes, highs and lows.
>>80444848COLD BLOODED KILLERS
>>80445201Go away, furfaggot.
Dark Elves are always cooler than High Elvesthis rule is universal across all settings
>>80445117>Stormkeks actually managed to take Morathi to court in BR: Kragnos>A FUCKING DWARF GOD, Grungi, bails her outYou know if nothing else, it's hilarious to see how badly Sigmar gets fucked over by her bullshit. Either he and Grungi pulled this dog and pony show to save face, or coincidentally the Stormcast got fucked out of vengeance because a DWARF god decided to simp for her at the worst possible time.In fact, Age of Sigmar lore is good for unintentional comedy if nothing else. Pic related.
>>80445325lol that court was a farce, Morathi could have destroyed all of them easily.
>>80444091Those are the greeks.
>>80443881So like, do Delves do anything besides raid, rape, and torture? Do they have culture? Are they're any of their kind reknowned for their singing, or culinary skills?
>>80445541Of course they do, but art that is not related to decorating weapons, armor and buildings is considered weak, they are very practical.
>>80445361This guys books worth reading? Was cleaning out my closet the other day and I found volume one in a stack of other books I'd gotten at a garage sale years ago.
>>80445541They still view themselves as cultured people with everything that entails. Menial jobs are largely picked up by slaves, so they have time to do whatever pleases them. A lot of them do military stuff because they like it.
>>80445571If you like pulp. The last one is supposed to be pretty bad.
>>80445591I can appreciate some fun fantasy pulp once in awhile. Cheers.
Speak quickly outlander.
>>80444968>>A FUCKING DWARF GOD, Grungi, bails her out>>80445064>>80445325Literally Sylvanas-tier character development
>>80445792Sylvanas is on a whole other level, because at least Morathi is consistently depicted as a despicable bloodthirsty monster. Sylvanas-level character development would be Alarielle personally declaring her alleigance to the Daughters of Khaine and telling Teclis and Tyrion that everything they've done since AoS began has contributed less to the world than everything Malerion, the TRUE PHOENIX KING, and Morathi have done.
>>80445792Dwarfs don't have godstheir is only The Emperor
>>80443977Originally used to describe drow, when humans conquered light elf territories the term was later used to describe light elves who violently resisted forced assimilation with slight physical differences, just like this question >>80444139. Fast forward several centuries and dark elf terrorist organizations have started to gain more power with one group assassinating the human king controlling the region. Kickstarting this world’s WW1
>>80445969They do in AoS. Literally, some of their ancestors ascended into godhood because of bonding with Winds of Magic.
>>80445920>because at least Morathi is consistently depicted as a despicable bloodthirsty monster.Just as Sylvanas.It's pretty much simmiliar precedent>angry elven bitch queen goes on murder spree>everybody kneels in respect
>>80446070How is Morathi not sexualised?Gives me more boners than any other GW character
>>80446093>How is Morathi not sexualised?She is ugly
>>80444223D&D 3E's Shadar-kai?
>>80443881Khaine bless this thread.>>80443977Kind of like Warhammer fantasy dark elves, actually, but more OP and less edgy against one another (but not to other races). Some of them would be demigod tier. I do play around with idea of the time skip form story though, so by that time most of the dark elves would be gone (in another plane of existence or something like that), but few powerful stragglers would stick around.I could go in depth but anyway.
>>80446118those where humans back then
>>80443977they're gray-skinned elves with white or silver hair and red, gray or blue eyes.They mostly live in their own nations or settlements or mixed with light elves and humans. Some also live in the colonies mixed in with brown elves.Like the other elves they live for about 250-300 years. They have, like the light elves, a lot of shared history with humans since the three races look and behave similar enough to cooperate
>>80445969Sure they do
>>80445047I don't hate them, but it depends on what kind of drow we talk here. Different sorts of FR drow that Wotc is sweeping under the rug, or maybe Eberron drow.>>80446080Morathi is more of a Queen Azshara and then something else. At least WHFB wise. Smegmar lore is whatever, they had opportunity to make cool dark elf factions without pointless edge but they split it up in some nonsense way. Fuck gw.>>80445541Well, some are beast trainers, so I assume some crafts are taken up, when it relates to domination of others (beastmasters, taskmasters) or warfare (smiths, maybe poisonmakers?)
>>80446189>Morathi is more of a Queen Azshara and then something else.In details of the story yes, but I was more talking about pattern of character's development
>>80444848Druchii > Drow >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Anything ever featured in Elder Scrolls media
>>80446217>Drow >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Anything ever featured in Elder Scrolls media
>>80444848I don't get the appeal of dunmer. Sure, they are interesting enough, but TES wise altmer seemed more to my liking, with their gnosticism and xenophobia.
>>80443881Warhammer Fantasy Dark Elves, the Druuchi. Won't look out of place in a JRPG or an outright Final Fantasy setting wouldn't they?
>>80446203>Morathi gets turned into a vaguely Slaaneshi medusa thing >Disrespected by literally every god, including her own son, despite contributing to binding Slaanesh and is deeply ashamed of her snek form>Spends thousands of years seething about it, developing a literal self-hatred powered gaze>Even upon attaining godhood, Morathi empowers Slaanesh-the being she hates more than any other now>Poses as a god of battle, still relies heavily on a fringe cult with loose, distributed cells and very few heavy hitters she needs to forment infighting within to ensure her supremacy>Azshara gets turned into an ursula octopus woman with multiple eyes>Summons Sargeras for what amounts to a booty call, fucks up, STILL gets N'zoth simping for her>"FUCK YES LET'S GO N'ZOTH, THIS EMPIRE IS GODDAMN MAGNIFICENT?">Never stopped angling to backstab N'zoth, shrugs off being tortured by his minions and gets the WoW PCs to go to the job for her while she moves on with life>Is a sorceress that has probably never thrown a punch in her life, has the undisputed loyalty of an entire massive empire of sea snek-elves and continues to have no problem charming people after becoming an octopus womanIt's kinda funny how through sheer lack of effort on Blizzard's part, Azshara comes across as the Chad Virgin to Morathi's Virgin Chad
>>80446272Dunmer as a race have enough depth to the point that they could actually exist somewhere, in some dimension, despite how fantastic it is at times.Altmer have some cool stuff as well. Muh Talos memers had the opposite effect on me and I looked more into them, understand their position a lot better.
>>80446295>Slaanesh-the being she hates more than any other nowMorathi worships Slaanesh
>>80446135Were they, really?
>>80446402Used to, back in based 6th edition lore.
>>804464606th ed was garbage
>>80446295I love Azshara. I can recognize that she's written about as deep as a sheet of paper, but it works for an insane narcissistic elf queen that's only supposed to be a irredeemable villain
>>80446402Yeah um, Morathi has about-faced on that ever since Slaanesh chewed her up and she had to claw her way free of his gullet in AoS >>80446504Same. It's such a simple, well-executed formula with a good aesthetic.
Dark elves are American, High elves are British.
>>80446460>>80446522DoK first Battletome
>>80446295>STILL gets N'zoth simping for herNever made any kind of sense, example of shitty Blizzard writting
>>80445251What if he gets thirsty during the battle? How would ge drink?
>>80443977They're the elves who stayed and weathered the apocalypse instead of fleeing to the feywild. They travel far and wide and are famous for their craftsmanship. They're also the only ones who have an accuracte (if biased) oral description of the end of the world.
>>80443977They descend from a group of wood elves who wanted to build cities and forge metal, and were persecuted and forced to an exodus by their contrymen for their 'heresy' against the 'ancient ways'. They could only head north, to a cold and inhospitable peninsula populated by dragons and monstrous reptilians; in time, they managed to tame that land, and grow as a stoic and hardened people. The wood elves kept vexing their southern borders, and their attempts to colonize past the seas resulted eventually in a rebellion of their colonies and the birth of the high elves, so overall they're not very fond of the other elven cultures.
>>80446504reminder that Azshara was queen for at least 2000 years before summoning not!Satan, during which time the night elf empire grew from a regional power to controlling most of the known world and being the most technologically advanced society to ever exist. Azshara was also widely loved and the most powerful mage to ever live (when she had access to one of the largest sources of magical power at least).So in other words she had to be a good ruler or at least good enough for her magical power to compensate for the rest.Helps explain why she considered herself more powerful than not!Satan and wanted him to kneel and help her create a new world to her liking
>>80444848Dunmer is best all aroundDruchii have solid aesthetic and are best in setting, but lack proper depth to surpass their superior dark elf cousinsDrow are hot but aside from the fap fuel, they only have the cool spiders so they're the lowest
>>80443977They're an all female race of elves with dark skin who steal males from humans and their non-dark cousins as sex/breeding slaves. Sexually, almost all of them are dominatrixes. Interestingly enough, mating with them causes humans to take on an elven aspect and outside of public sexuality, a male can outrank his mistress in non-sexual hierarchies though when a orgy happens to fuel a magical ritual or even just for a celebration happens, he'll still get dommed silly.
>They're an all female raceTrash and pornpilled.
>>80448371Feanor is a worthless bitch. "Virgin Feanor vs. Chad Fingolfin" would be more appropriate. Also, virgin morgoth should be paired with chad Sauron, it's just logic.
>>80443977The original loyalists that lost the civil war against the now high elves. My epic twist is that compared to any other setting with this backstory they were actually in the right all along and the high elves now take the mantle of the evil elf race, being imperialist assholes. The dark elves aren't really evil, but cast out of their homeland to shithole village they become gloomy, with a dark humor, a culture based on lost honor, celebrating death and struggle, relying on stealth and dirty fighting.
>>80443977A race of created underground by a completely different god from the creator of the elves, as a mockery of elves. The women eke out a living using mushrooms, ores, whatever they can get from butchering their males, and the cooperation of other underground races
>>80445047>>80444918I actually like Pathfinder's drow, Lolth and Drizzt are just baggage that keeps them from being interesting.
Great, we have a bumpfag in here too.
Druchi >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> everyone else >>>>>>>>>>>>>> dr*w
>>80443977Pretty standard drow, but the setting's magic is toned down to a level where the flintlock equipped armies coming through the dimensional gate are a serious threat. They've secured a political marriage with the not!Prussians on the other side and are working on taking over their entire world instead of just the underdark. And they can be split into two main sub-groups: australian drow and vaguely eastern european drow.
>>80446473Warhammer Fantasy has been garbage since 3rd. What's your point? Shit even capta is calling it gayos.
>>80449097how different are Pathfinder Drow from D&D Drow?
>>80443977>Losers of a brutal civil war over the matter of succession between a pair of twin princes after the elven king had died without naming an heir. >Their royal family can directly trace their lineage all the way back to the Elven God-King that laid the foundation of elven society.>Political structure is fairly similar to how it was back before the civil war: Loads of Noble Households that vie for dominance in a particular region of their kingdom.>Dark Elves are so notorious for outpacing rabbits in terms of population growth that roughly 85% of their population was under the age of 30 ever since a few decades after the civil wars' end.>Inter/Intra-family conflicts got so bad at one point that the Dark Elven royalty had to draft a ban on inter/intra-family killings/warfare and enforce the newly created law by essentially sacking a large number of the "Old Households" in order to get everyone to stop.>This then led to the rise of sea-borne raids that brought wealth, fame, and glory to anyone who came back alive. >Now the nobility just fights one another through economic warfare/political intrigue instead of killing each other.>Believes Polygamy to be the "civilized" form of how to conduct marriages instead of monogamy. >The individual households can be divided into two categories in terms of who rules them and how their line of succession works: Patriarchal or Matriarchal
>>80453709They don't have Lolth to worship so the spider theme is downplayed to non-existent and that's about it.
>>80453709There ancestors were a group of elves that decided seek refuge in the darklands/underground during earthfall(huge meteor call by aboleths to destroy their pet human civilization that got out of their control). The impact temporarily woke up Rovagug a primordial evil trap in the center of the world, a combination of Rovagug reaching out with his mind, their resentment for other elves apparently abandoning them, the strange radiation of the darklands and the likelihood the they were already the asshole kind of elves change them physically and mentality into the drow we know. They have no monolithic religion and their noble houses have different patrons among the demon princes.
>>80454450I like really it, can you tell me more? I might steal it for my on use.
>>80454901What exactly do you want to know?

>>80458608You're the one who's projecting mate.
>>80443977It was governed by the High Matriarchy(the heads of the Eight Noble Houses) with the Empress(always called from the weakest house Zauviir) until one day the seer daughter of one of the houses had a vision that there would be an Empress that would disrupt the balance of the world, so she had Empress Opal assassinated. Opal's firstborn daughter was an archeologist by the name of Esparax who got the job, but fucked everything by being the one Empress to actually do thing, like make peace with the Dwarves and Goblins to fight off an invasion of Gnolls. The Seer panicked and made plans to remove Esparax from power to be replaced by her twin sister Kalexi, but then Kalexi wound up assassinated and when a meeting of the High Matriarchy was called to investigate, a bomb went off and full civil war erupted. The war lasted about 40 years and caused 2 backstories. The Imperial faction won, partly because they invented chemical warfare and partly because Esparax is secretly the high priestess of a partially forgotten goddess of chaos and change. Now the players are caught between the Imperials who they work for (especially the Drow player who is trying to put the moves on Esparax with his 4 charisma) and the Seer who claims to have evidence of Esparax's guilt in some nefarious scheme. Esparax killed her own twin and seized absolute power because she wants to marry her brother, the only positive influence in her life.TL:DR Formerly underground North Korea, now closer to underground Syria.

>>80461193Why do this in an otherwise fine thread?
>>80459864That was never an elf.
>>80461230Because this is an elf thread. People that don't give a shit about this fictional race and will never once play any of them still come here to masturbate and shitpost.
>>80461230>otherwise fine threadScroll the thread and look at the OP picture
>>80443881semi-undead infused with shadow and death magic illusionists and insane manipulators
>>80461316>People that don't give a shit about this fictional race and will never once play any of themLike you?
>>80461326>Cold IronGives me an idea for my next campaign where "dark elves" aren't really elves at all, but it's just a colloquial term for the original denizens from the Fae realm that evolved into normal Elves. "Dark Elves" are just capricious, precocious faeries that exist to sow discord and mayhem for their own amusement like elves in real legends.
>>80461331I will make sure the next character I play, if given the chance, will be an elf. Last time the faggot GM made us roll races, and currently I'm playing CoC.
>>80461119It's canon, Warhammer doesn't even have elf males in lore now

>>80461386Are you alright?
>>80461399He is kind of dead
>>80461387In due course, Brox was captured by the Moon Guard and brought to Suramar for safekeeping. Though the night elves treated him like an animal, the novice priestess Tyrande Whisperwind was kind to him, giving him food and healing his injuries. Brox called her "shaman", believing that the powers of healing she used were granted to her by the spirits. >when even time cannot stop power of BGC

>>80461398didn't Broxigar travelled to the past?>>80461371imma be honest i just wanted to post the cooler Malekith.My dark elf lore is that the term dark elf reffers to elves who have commited heinous acts, ie: serial killer elves, sorcerers and wizards who bring horrors into the world, those who desecrate tombs and disturb the ancestors and those who private others from their freedom.I use the shadar-kai from 5e as shadow elves, they live on the shadow of the world because the sun disolves them, they can only resist it for a time with the use of magic tattoos and charms. they steal, kill, torture and more just to get their rocks off, the material realm is like an LSD trip to them. you can hire one as a guide to the shadow of the world if you manage to arrange a price but it's always something fucked. they are called dark elves only by non-elves. dwarves also get called dark elves because both a race of sadistic psychopaths that die in the sun, but dwarves turn to stone instead of disolving in smokethe PHB drow or the purple skin-white hair ones in general i just relabeled as night elves and are hardcore isolaitonists because high elves almost genocided them during the elven schism

>>80445070If you try to imitate Drizzt's alignment, nobody is gonna' take you seriously.
>>80444091Romans were a lot more equalitarian toward women, as long as they came from a wealthy family, than most other contemporary societies. Check the differences between marriage contract "in hand" and "out of hand", for example.
>>80461521Found the FOB Chigger
>>80468078>were blatantly copied from whfb and it`s glorious.It's kind of a tradition in the serie some H3 factions were basically a guy who opened the D&D monster manual and put some monster together and H4 magic system was inspired by the MtG color wheel.
At the end of the day, Tolkien's depiction of Elves is religious canon imo. Tolkien's Dark Elves would be Eöl and his son Maeglin as well as (more like Fire elves) the Sons of Fëanor. Druchii are closest to Tolkien's vision, but of course everything has to be cartoonish and exaggerated in typical GW fashion. Drow are some kind of bastardized offshot.But yeah, read the Silmarillion and find out about how fucking insane (but also sympathetic) Tolkien's Elves were in the First Age.
>>80445591>>80445651lol there wouldn't be a /tg/ if it weren't for fantasy pulp.
>>80469200So as I suspected, pedo shit. Cool, you'll be getting a visit.
>>80445571I loved them. He also has a comic series that goes past the books. Some of his most fun adventures happen there but the books are good too. The end times book is shit but what else is new.
>>80448371This so much. I actually grew to dislike the book because it felt like the obvious heroes (Feanor and his sons) were being shit on by these stupid Mary Sues who just showed up and won due to plot and some random shit. Evil in that book was more or less the underdog as well to the point where I was sorta rooting for them to win just to spite the stupid gods and their snarky servants. Once they started shitting on Feanor too I just lost my interest.
>>80443977I was going to have their women have twins or triplets every pregnancy. Then because of er population troubles they would have orgasms when pregnant. The orgasm would be due to the babies eating one another. I realized this was a degenerate magical realm that no one EVER would play or tolerate. So I abandoned the idea. What do you guys think, is it too magical realm?
>>80472723I think it's not working as bait. Not sure where the problem is. Too long? Chad-Zak premise too stale? Dunno, but still needs work. 2/10
>>80469736>first age elves insaneI’ve been seeing more and more people talk about First Age elves being basically fae or druchii and it’s absolute bullshit. Only the Fëanorians ever commit kinslaying or do anything that isn’t reflective of their perfect Catholic virtue (except for the House of Fingolfin at Alqualondë on accident). And even then most the Fëanorians are basically noble, except Curunir and Caranthir. They just have jewel autism. They’re nowhere near being mindbendingly capricious or cavalierly sadistic like I’ve seen anons pretending. And that’s a good thing; keeps the Eldar unique among modern fantasy elves.
>>80472990>CurunirDidn't know he was elf.
>>80473131Whatever. You know you I meant.
>>80444946why?btw new captcha sucks

>>80443977The genetically assigned demon slayers of the elven race. Originally the punishment of elves who displeased their patron courts, the Golden Emperor rounded up all drow 1000 years ago and made them into their own racial caste. With the fall of the Golden Dynasty, the drow continue to live apart from the other elven subraces, clustering in areas where demons are known to live for the purpose of exterminating them. Their primary "homeland" is a desert mesa that was used as the Golden Dynasty's main jail. They dislike the assertion by the High Elves that Feykind are entitled to the world; resulting in them preferring the company of humans and hostile to elves on sight. Due to their desert origins, they covet fruit and will literally go on long journeys simply to taste it. It's customary to give a drow a piece of fresh fruit as a sign of goodwill.
