When you are ceremoniously wedded by the hundreds to a single man, what are the chances he will see you, much less more then once? The reason for that little tradition is so that Malekith can keep tabs on magic users in Naggaroth. They're all wedded to him. They're not strangers. Given the paranoid...

Thanks for the feedback! I think Malekith is one of my favorite characters to write about. I've always pictured Druchii as total power junkies, so most of my portrayals of Malekith center around how he manipulates his subjects with absolute impunity; but to add insult to injury, he's bored while he ...

Homecoming

I was doing some spring-cleaning and noticed many of the links in the FAQ stickies don't function anymore, so I went ahead and tidied that up a bit. I also added a couple sources that I've been using for a while now that some users might find useful. However, I was a little upset when I saw that not...

But in the end I stand by my idea. Morathi is the true leader of the Druchii and Malekith is only her puppet.


That's part of why I enjoy reading your posts. I have pretty much the opposite interpretation. :)

He was the one who brought the fruit to Malekith.

As far as religion goes, he's such a powerful sorcerer that the warp entities would probably mean very little to him.

Just for the record, all elves used to speak Eltharin. After the Sundering, Malekith did design a new language that came to be known as Drukh-Eltharin. The language of the Asur eventually evolved to Tar-Eltharin. I've read somewhere that Druchii will speak Eltharin in high-class settings, can't quit...

Average lifespan of an elf I would count in around 1000-1200 years old, with 1500 and more being an elder (80s in human years).


Add another thousand years to that estimate and you're right on the money.

The Grey Elves are the elves that decided to stay in the old world and try to get the Phoenix Crown back from the dawi. There are a few elven enclaves left in the old world that aren't entirely Asur, that's who they are.

They don't serve any real purpose as far as we gamers are concerned. They are just different ways/outlets for dark elves to worship the God of Murder.

An easy solution to the manticore idea is to just have a beastmaster ride it. That way you can incorporate it into the fluff without worrying about it gamewise.

Nagash deserves to be in his own category in my opinion. There was a time when he was nigh invincible, but he keeps getting chopped to pieces :P . You cannot get rid of him though, not until Chaos eventually swallows up everything including itself.

Nope, and probably wouldn't ever happen. What would they have to gain? The Asrai are sitting on some serious raw magical energies that may/may not be valuable to the Druchii, but that's about it.

We have no idea how old they can actually live to.


Warhammer elves tend to live for about two thousand years. Beyond that they'd need some sort of magical assistance to keep going.
