Eternal Crusade Description
The last remnants of a proud and ancient civilisation, the Eldar are deadly foes. Inhumanly swift and highly skilled, they are armed with advanced weaponry far beyond the ken of mortal men, and their mastery of the psychic arts is unparalleled.
The history of Eldar goes back to long before the dawn of man, and thus they have had a secret stake in the fate of Arkhona since pre-history. As the warp vomits forth its corrupt spawn, the Imperium musters its greatest warriors and the savage greenskins descend upon it, the Eldar know all others must be prevented from gaining control of this world.
An engimatic race, they are divided into numerous Craftworlds - giant, planetoid-sized spacecraft, each with their own unique character and culture.
The Eldar race is one of the most ancient of the galaxy.
Proud and disdainful, they possess a very advanced technology and count some of the most powerful Psykers in their ranks. But they are on the verge of extinction. Their Psychic abilities and natural connection to the warp are a blessing as well as curse, with Slaanesh (the Chaos God of lust, greed, pleasure, and pain) always watching, eager to devour their souls. They can foresee their own inevitable destruction but they defy this fate, fighting desperately and courageously to prevent it.
