Why do we ride atop these elegant craft? The better to hear the screams of our prey as we ride them down, to savour the fear etched on their faces, to taste the tantalising tang of their blood in the air as an appetiser before the feast. But most of all we ride them so that the slaughter may begin as soon as possible.
       - Dariaq Bladetongue, Kabal of the Pierced Eye [taken from 5th(?) edition rulebook]

I remember reading this quote and thinking to myself "Kabal of the Pierced Eye sounds pretty nasty so I think I'll go with that."  Anyhow, the story so far:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kabal of the Pierced Eye


Dariaq Bladetoungue, once a lowly Sybarite, has now dueled and deceived his way into the position of Archon of the Kabal of the Pierced eye.  Under his leadership the Kabal has grown considerably in size and strength.  What was once a gang too small to even dare call itself an actual Kabal is now powerful enough to bring defeat to the likes of the Blood Angels and the Necrontyr.  Dariaq loves challenging himself both physically against duelists and tactically, and the Blood Angels and Necrontyr provide both in great measure.  Still, if he continues to pit his kabal against military forces, his luck and resources may soon run dry...

Wych Cult of the Infinite Silence

For all their bravada, the Wych cult of the Infinite Silence would have surely been destroyed at the Hands of the Blood Angels were it not for the intervention of the Kabal of the Pierced Eye.  As price for keeping their near-defeat a secret the Kabal has pledged it's loyalty to Dariaq and taken an oath of silence, the only exception being their indistinct shrieking battle cries.  So famous has their uncharacteristic self-imposed silence that several Incubi from an unknown shrine have joined up with them to attempt to find any links between the Cult's practice and Drazhar's famous silence.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I play as Blood Angels and against B.A. with high frequency, and my best friend plays Crons so we have that friendly rivalry going.  Hence their mention in the story.

I love 8th edition, and I love Dark Eldar in 8th, but I still can't wait for fluffy Kabal rules to drop in our dex.  I have written multiple Dark Eldar fan codexes (3 and a "mini-fandex" which was totally ridiculous), the latest of which (for 7th edition) can be found here.  I also created a Blood Angels 7th edition fan codex, and I have used the Age of Sigmar Kharadron Overlords battletome to create a 40k Squats codex complete with a bunch of Stratagems.

There are some great ideas here!

The Dark Eldar Codex sucks. You probably won just because your enemy loaded his dice to loose. Never forget this mantra and spread the word. Mention it in every discussion possible, people can´t get enough of that valuable information and need to be reminded regularely.

The Nightsworn

Before the fall House Al'demar was known for it's affinity with the warp and it's psychic prowess. But that all changed with the fall, while all of the Eldar were rocked by the loss of their psychic powers, for the Al'demar it took more then just their psychic might, it took away their position in Commoragh, their power. Their houses powers dwindled, while frantically searching for some other means of power. Years passed on, and the House was considered a lesser house at best forgotten by their peers and potential enemies...

When Vect took control of Commoragh, House Al'demar was left untouched as it was no threat whatsoever and they quickly assumed the Kabal structure for fear of destruction, and they finally found their means of power after centuries of searching. For when Vect took control of Commoragh, he encouraged raiding to a degree the Noble houses had forbade, and House Al'demar changed forever. The Newly formed Kabal lacked a name, they lacked something that made them great until Sevran took control of the house leading raids that would shroud entire worlds in night causing fear, panic, and loss of everything on many a world, and from the screams of the Mon'Keigh they finally gained their name... The Nightsworn.

Uner Sevran's leadership the Kabal was regaining power and earning position within Commoragh their ancestral home ripe with slaves and wealth. Brokering deals with Craftworlders, creating Corsair fleets, and trading with Exodites all increased the Nightsworns power and connections, a chance for the Nightsworn to reach the upper echelons of Commoragh was once again in their grasp. But as seems the fate of the Al'demars they fell yeta gain. In fact they were betrayed. The Haemonculus Verix in their service had found patronage with a more "bennficial" doner the catch was to make sure the Nightsworn fell, and fall they did for Covenite and Kabalite alike attacked their Citadel and Sevran lead a mighty defence and repelled the invading forces, but that is when Verix made his move and killed the Archon... sparking rage in Sevran's son Rhvan he hunted down Verix but to no avail. Causing in the Nightsworn's fall once again, but also a fear.

After his father’s death, Rhivan developed an intense fear of his own death. But he couldn’t turn to the haemonculi for they’d betrayed his father… He needed to find another way to bring him back from death. He began to experiment with soulstones, twisting them and corrupting them, until something new was created. The Soulstone had absorbed his soul… well a portion of it, Rhivan wasn’t dead, but neither was he fully alive but it made him stronger, and now there was something new within his grasp. Something forbidden dancing in his mind.

Through experimentation with his new existence he discovered he could imbue others with his gift, by doing so their soul’s were tied to his, this transformation made the newly raised Undead with loyalty to him while still retaining intelligent thought. Though not all of his creations were capable of such as Rhivan was able to animate skeleton’s to his whims, and raise undead abominations to join his ranks...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'm still working on the lore especially with the new Ynnari rules coming this way, I love how I was making a Necromancy based Kabal and now I have rules to go with it (Originally I was going to use Coven units converted to be Undead but now...)

The idea that a cluster of Incubi trying to find out why Drazhar is so powerful ended up chasing after some completely unrelated Wyches who also happen to be silent is greatly amusing to me.
