- When you write cult of Nurgle...
Can you please explain what this entails for Eldar lol
What I essentially mean is that it's literally a cult of Eldar Nurgle worshippers. While this doesn't particuliary have anything to do with the list, it's the fluff I'm associating with them.
To delve deeper into the motivation behind that:
During the fall of the Eldar, Isha was claimed by Nurgle as his little "plaything" of sorts.
I set out to expand on that idea and take the following ideas in mind:
-Eldar are a doomed race, "struggling" for survival.
-Eldar fear being consumed by Slaneesh.
-Eldar experience emotions like despair to a much greater degree.
-Nurgle and Khorne stand opposed to Tzeentch and Slaneesh.
-Nurgle's tenets are generally based around decay, the inevitable.
-Being allowed to the realm of Nurgle in the afterlife means reuniting with Isha... Possibly.
-Nurgle is the nicest and probably most accepting god to his followers out of all the Dark Gods.
Based on this the idea spawned to have an Eldar cult that believes that by following Nurgle, their bodies are kept immortal, but if they are to die their souls are "saved" by Nurgle, hence being allowed to reunite with their lost godess. Aside from that the cult has already accepted the fact their race is doomed, but instead of fighting this, they'd much rather spread the same despair and decay they are experiencing with anyone that has not embraced Nurgle's Rot yet. However, like most Eldar they do not believe in causing unneeded bloodshed amongst members of their own, unless required by Papa Nurgle. They may sound hypocritical in ways, but in my belief it makes them all the more interesting! ;D
