Wondering which side some you stand on as conflict continues to rip apart this once-beautiful city; who here supports the rule of Vect, and who among us have embraced the teachings of Yvraine?

I'm drukhari and care for little beyond my own addiction to extreme thrills. That being said, Vect brings our people some semblance of order and cohesion, and I'm completely against that. Plus Yvraine is a better dancer.

Not that it matters, as long as we get plenty of agonised screams. Do we even get a choice, though? How exciting!

See, as (one of ?) the last of the 3rd edition Archons, I literally have no idea what's happening in Commorragh any more. I come back to find that there's been a massive Dysjunction and now civil war has broken out between the old establishment and... a bunch of religious puritans? I don't even  know what the Followers of Yvraine want.

Are they going to shut down the theatres/arenas? Make us stop raiding realspace? Eliminate the Kabal system and/or overturn the the Thirteen  Vengences? Because, I've heard a bit of their "preaching" and all I see is the total annihilation of our way of life.

Which I guess makes a Vect supporter...

The followers of this 'Yvraine' are little but mad, and not in the fun way. If ignoring them was a possibility, one would. They claim to worship a god of death and present the annihilation of She-Who-Thirsts. A noble goal, but one that would see us all destroyed.

So... you're "team Vect" then, Sarcron?

I am always on the side of the True Kin. Wouldnt say I am on the side of Vect, but I really wouldn't shed a tear if the Ynnari got the Squat treatment.

Pfft! I'm a simple gal. Give me untold depths of agony and torment and I'm happy. I'll go with the death witch.

Most certainly. That said, I would hardly disparage the destruction of The Great Enemy; I simply refuse to aid them

I do wonder though, if we were able to defeat the great enemy then our souls may very well stop leaking like old buckets. If that is the case would we get such rapture from the agony and torment we cause? I know that before the Fall the Eldar were prone to a nice session of depravity, but would it feel as satisfying when you arent gaining the same level of restoration from it?

The Witch doesnt like our fleshy monsters for some reason.

I, for one, want the exclusivity of all. No discrimination against surgically altered pain beasts!

Also, only a fool would openly go against Vect. We all know at least 2/3 of those listening to this conversation are reporting back to the Supreme Overlord

Getting a bit ahead of ourselves, aren't we? But I would delight in the freedom to inflict pain and misery out of the most pure love of cruelty, unmarred by necessity, and to show every prey how deeply and truly I love them as I make them scream and scream until their souls rip from their throats. Unlike perhaps some of my kin I have never felt hatred or contempt for the lesser races. I love them. Just love them to pieces.

It's a good question, though. I don't like good questions. Please stop it.

Too much?

Sorry. Please be reassured that I'm not actually mad, I'm nice to everyone I meet, and I have never deliberately made anyone scream except perhaps with joy. I own an adorable labrador that I walk around the neighbourhood twice a day, stopping to say hi to everyone on the street and giving them lots of sloppy kisses -- from the dog, I mean. I don't do that myself, as that kind of behaviour would probably cause comment.

I did kill a scorpion that got into my living room the other day by smashing it with my shoe, but I felt bad about it.

I'm just playing at being fey and cruel, and maybe I get carried away a little, but please don't look at me like that. Smile

Covens provide more than fleshy monsters - they provide medical services like cloning, regeneration, and face-stretching... cosmetic procedures. If the covens get shut down, we will not only suffer true death, but leave ugly corpses as well.

No, it's simply unacceptable. Supporting Yvraine means opposing 10,000 years of True Kin tradition.

Quite right, I am not foolish enough to believe that we can go on without the resources of the haemonculi.
And, Agatha, if they are simple enough as to stop after a simple disagreement from yourself, they obviously do not have the right to this sort of debate

Or there was nothing else to be said, but whatever keeps your raider aloft Razz I take my pride from being told it was a good question, and I really didnt think there was any need for apoligies on Agatha's part.

However if continuation is so badly desired Razz if you want to be in the side of these new fangled Eldar with their dashing character models then cool, but our pantheon died to a god that has yet failed to kill me. Every year I exist is sticking the proverbial finger up at Slaanesh. Naturally I am also too good of an Archon to experience true death, so I dont see the pain I cause as neccessity rather than mocking a god that still cannot claim me.

I'm 100% on the side of the Ynnari. None of them are asking the True Kin to give up torture, mayhem, and slaughter. The only thing they have to lose is the devouring teeth of Slaanesh.

The Coven of the Shattered Helix would never accept the actions of any who might destabilise the harmony of the Dark City. Especially those who would consider our own affairs and legitimate business interests as unacceptable.

The True Kin have no need of gods.

Anyway, "civil war" is a very dramatic way of describing what will be a brief but enjoyable purge of a handful of deluded religious fanatics.
