Eldar

The Eldar are one of the oldest races in the universe. They stand at about 1.9m to 2.7m tall and weigh between 40kg and 70kg. Their body structure is long and lanky. They have very sharp facial features and pale skin. Their hair varies in colour from human standards to other stranger ones, and varies in length, though most of the time, long hair is worn in a high ponytail.

Psychologically, the Eldar are quite arrogant. They tend to think that they are above many other races as per their heritage and connection to the Warp. They have a very large psychic footprint and the entire race is somewhat psychic, though not all can conjure powers. They have a deep correlation with the fate of the universe and believe that they are the ones that need to protect it, interfering in Imperial matters when they decide it’s best.

The Eldar of the Koronus Frontier, however, are a bit different in demeanor. Many are Exodites, Eldar that have forsaken their Craftworlds before the Fall and the birth of Slaanesh. These are much more peaceful and do not have technology as advanced as their Craftworld brethren. Other Eldar that have settled are mostly the last remains of a dead Craftworld, left without a Bonesinger. Then there are those on the journey of the Outcast and wish to spend their time within the Imperium before making their journey back.

Eldar characters are created using a modified version of the statistics on the Dark Trader Wiki.

Racial Traits, Skills, and Talents

Gain Peer (Eldar), Linguistics(Eldar, Low Gothic), and Common Lore (Eldar) talents. Treat Psynicience as a Basic Skill. All Eldar have a Psyrating of 0 and cannot utilize powers unless it increases. All Eldar have “Brook No Insult”. All Eldar have Unnatural Agility (+3) as long as they are wearing armour crafted for an Eldar and are never mistaken for another race as long as they are observed in motion.

Non-Imperial: -10 to all Common Lore, Forbidden Lore, and Scholastic Lore tests relating to the Imperium. All Medicae tests done by non-Eldar on an Eldar recieve a -10 penalty, though Scholastic Lore (Eldar) negates this penalty.

Soulstones: The Eldar psychic presence, or their ‘soul’, is many times more powerful than a humans. And with the threat of Slaanesh always on their minds, they have taken the liberty of making sure they will not let her win. At birth, an Elder is crafted a small gem in which their soul is infused into. This way, Slaanesh will not get their soul when they die, as well as aid in stopping the effects of Corruption upon their soul. They still attain corruption as normal, but follow the Path of Damnation (pg73 in the Radical’s Handbook) as their character degenerates into utter madness, though they reroll any result that gives a Mutation. But should an Eldar loose contact with their Soulstone, they are driven into a mad frenzy to obtain it. They gain the effects of Hatred and Frenzy when applicable, and suffer 1d5 Insanity points for every month of separation. A new one can be crafted for a hefty price at an Eldar colony or purchased at auction or on the black market.

Any Eldar wielding a weapon not crafted for an Eldar to wield suffers a -10 penalty on all associated tests and do not benefit from the advantages of quality ratings.

There is also a list of specific Eldar Traits. Each description includes the Rank and Experience Point cost required to purchase them.

Careers

Careers: Rogue Trader, Arch-Militant, Psyker, Seneschal, Void Master, Mercenary, Assassin

Altered Careers:

  • Astropath Transcendent → Farseer: Those Eldar that gain the psychic prowess much greater than the majority of their race often times have it appear through visions of the future. As such, these Eldar are called Farseers. Once they have been discovered, they learn to control and utilize their powers for greater means, eventually evolving into much more grandiose visions and even other powers altogether. Eldar Farseers are built following the Astropath Transcendent, but do not gain the benefit of Sightless Vision. Instead of the Telepathy Discipline and Astrotelepathy, they start with the Divination Discipline and two powers from it.

All other Careers without Psyniscience and Resistance (Psychic) on their lists add them at Rank 2 for 200 Experience and Rank 4 for 500 Experience respectively.
