Can Realspace Raids Be Commoditized?
Every Dark Eldar should have access to the thrills of a realspace raid with all the comforts of home....provided they can pay, of course.

Marketing realspace raids as luxury cruises is a stupid idea.

Hi All:

So, I recently had a re-imagining of my Kabal. I thought about it and decided that there was a niche in the market: affordable realspace raids. The codex makes it clear that only the strongest Kabals get to enjoy the spring human hunt. That is all fine and good but Commorraghians are thrill/experience seekers to the core. I figured that enterprising individuals could easily turn an otherwise incredibly expensive/risky raid into something more manageable by marketing the raid as a space cruise.

Is this idea too asinine?

More importantly, what sorts of activities/attractions be staples of a realspace raid cruise?

Love the idea! I could see an archon doing this then backstabbing them. Actually going through with it in good faith? not sure.

Price of the Raid cruise could be a certain amount of heads and/or prisoners to go to the hosting Kabal, the patron would only get to keep a couple. Price for failing to meet whatever price the Archon demands, or maybe the Archon doesn't like the prisoners they presented, or maybe he is just bored...the patron's life is forfeit, the Archon gets his kills or slaves no matter what.

Hehehe. I think there must be some clever archons out there selling tickets to their raids and offering a free resurrection as a bargain for anyone who can pay.

I don't think this is that unimaginable.

Look at the arenas, hundreds/thousands of Dark Eldar sat watching, sating their thirst.
The Dark Olympiad takes it even further, taking the spectators through a webway to watch the Wych Cult in action first hand.

There are, but you do need to pay to play.

My idea was to develop a system that wasn't so much a Kabalite cash cow as an alternative means to power. I envisioned Dying Sun Cruises as being a purely for-profit entity that has the feel of an Enron boardroom as opposed to a warlord's throne room. I do not think that there would be much of a need to use sticks when the entire cruise is a carrot. You probably would not need to rip anyone off either. In one stroke, you've turned a huge cost (labor) into a huge source of revenue.

Returning to one of my original questions: What would such a cruise entail? What DO Dark Eldar do while on vacation?


I would like to quote Sid Meyer's Mwabudike Morgan as my inspiration: "And when at last it is time to make the transition from mega-corporation to planetary government, from entrepreneur to emperor, it is then that the true genius of our strategy will become apparent. In former times, the energy monopoly was called the power company. We intend to give this name an entirely new meaning."

I imagine they would bring some slaves along, some for service others for personal entertainment. Depending on who all is on the cruise/vacation there may be some match fighting, possibly a tournament, don't think they'd be too concerned if there was a death in those. If they have wyches, hellions or reavers I assume they'd have them compete and just enjoy the show, just like back home, but this time from a Raider or something and likely in realspace. Some light raiding, see who racks up the most kills and prisoners seems right in there too. Lets not forget leisurely time spent doing drugs and freaky stuff.

lets see.... I picture a dark eldar vacation to be something like an archon on his pimp-mobile riding through the webway with a Disco ball hanging from the weapon racks. Along with some Eye of the Tiger playing as he watches slaves having an all out 1v1 to the death, and then the last slave is beaten to death by the archon, and then the archon decides that he wants to do something else and so he goes back to his kabal and attacks the black heart before dieing horribly.
