Eldar: the Whining

This is mostly a placeholder. It's going to get a lot nicer and fancier over time, with stupid amounts of bullshit text that nobody ever reads.

Creating a Character:
Name: you should have one of these
Virtue and Vice: this is bullshit, but I guess it's compulsory
Aspect: your school of combat. Kind of like Vampire Clans.
Craftworld: the place you come from. Kind of like… the other stuff in WW games.

Attributes: 6/5/3
Skills: 11/7/4
Specialisations: 3
Merits: 7 (plus "Aspect Equipment" 1 for free)
Superiorities: 3 (1 from any, 1 from Aspect or Secondary, 1 from Aspect)
Discipline: 6
Willpower: 3

Power sources:
Psykers have a maximum Smug pool equal to double their dots in Psyker. These are spent to use Psychic Powers.
Everyone has a maximum Sad pool of ten, plus one for every Aspect they "master" (reaching Discipline 9 and swapping out).
Sad can be used to power Superiorities, and can also be spent to negate the Perfectness of a Perfect roll.

One of each is regained every morning. Additionally, any time a Psyker gets a Perfect Roll, he gains one point of Smug. He can also, if empty, tap into the Warp for more Smug, automatically reducing his Discipline by one but refilling his Smug. Every time someone suffers a Dramatic Failure, they regain one Sad. Spending a point of Willpower also grants another point of Sad - the more they use up their inner reserves, the less will they have left and the more sad they become.


Discipline:
It's the equivalent of Humanity or Wisdom or whatever

10: Locked in forever as Exarch
9: Chance to change Aspect (drop to 6 again)
Sins: Existing (weekly test), looking at self in mirror, getting angry
8: Sins: Having sex ever, taking combat drugs, feeling smug
7: Sins: The Gay, entering a rage, trying new experiences just because
6: Starting Point
Sins: Hurting an Eldar, taking recreational drugs, going a week without moping
5: Sins: Killing an Eldar, sexual experimentation
4: Chance to swap to Harlequin
Sins: Bathing in blood, torture, wild orgies
3: Chance to swap to Harlequin or Dark Path
Sins: drug binges, self-mutilation, not blaming someone else for your troubles
2: Chance to swap to Dark Path
Sins: Perfect rolls, slaughtering/massacring groups, cannibalism
1: On the edge – test daily to avoid dropping to 0
0: EATEN BY SLAANESH


Perfect roll: any extraordinary success with no 1 rolled. (You're so perfect that Slaanesh gets a little bit closer to owning your soul and/or anus)

Harlequin Change:
Contacted if: no Skill or Attribute is under 2, Dex must be 4+, Pre must be 3+, Expression must be 4+

The offer will be made - if it is declined, they might never again make the offer. Or maybe they will, when they think you are ready.
If accepted, they put three tests before you.

First test: fight a group of armed humans, unarmed, and win

Second test: disguise well enough to not be recognised by those closest to you

Third test: bring an audience to tears with a production/play/song/performance

If successful, your Soulstone is shattered in sacrifice to the Laughing God and you completely ignore the Discipline part of the character sheet.
A Harlequin does not hold to such things and is at no risk of being nommed by Slaanesh.

Equipment Gained: Mesh, Power Sword or Harlequin's Kiss, Splinter Pistol, bright colourful spandex, masks, ancient scripts, a musical instrument
Access: Grav Maga (Fighting Style)

Dark Eldar Change:
Generally requires finding some Dark Eldar, and convincing them you are depraved enough to join. This should be hard, and frankly, is usually just a way to write your character out as a villain. Discipline gets replaced with Depravity (or Edginess), and they can no longer gain replacement Aspect gear or take dots in Aspect Equipment. Likewise they cannot take any more dots in Craftworld-Eldar Superiorities, but instead get access to new Superiorities. They must make a choice for their new path: Kabalite, Wych, Hellion

Note that there is no going back - although a Dark Eldar can still become a Harlequin.

Edginess/Depravity:
10: Magnificent Bastard -tier. Forever safe, you actually get a free pass.
9: Sins: not torturing someone who is under your power, not having sex with something that is right there for the taking
8: Sins: Thinking a pleasant thought, not beating the shit out of your underlings
7: Sins: Going for a day without sexual gratification or taking drugs
6: Sins: Killing someone without enjoying it, having Consensual, non-bondage sex
5: Sins: killing a foe you could instead capture or disable
4: Starting point (or point-of-conversion)
Sins: Not taking drugs that are right there for the taking
3: Chance to instead become a Harlequin
Sins: Showing Mercy (including a Mercy-kill)
2: Sins: Showing Compassion
1: Dangerous ground - without effort, you must test every day to avoid dropping to zero and being claimed
0: CLAIMED BY SLAANESH, OM NOM NOM


Eldar Opinions:

Humans: hey caused all our problems, and they are not important or useful at all.
Mages: look at those pathetic little Psychic powers, ours are better!
Vampires: they are not as beautiful or tragic as us. Our romances are better.
Werewolves: they are ugly, easily angered and servants of Khorne. Stupid dogfuckers.

Aspects:

A starting character automatically gets the first dot in "Aspect Equipment" for free. Additionally, most of their starting Superiority dots depend on their Aspect. If a character reaches Discipline 9, they may undergo a transformation, involving paperwork, poetry and a week of meditation. At the end of that time, they drop to Discipline 6, but change to a new Aspect - they can no longer advance "Aspect Equipment" for their old Aspect, and cannot increase their old Aspect's primary Superiority until the new one is at the same level or higher. However they don't actually lose anything, and gain a free dot in "Aspect Equipment" for their new Aspect.

A character who reaches Discipline 10 cannot do this, as they are locked in as an Exarch forever.

All Aspects come with an optional Flaw. You may elect to take it (unless the MC says "No Flaws, they're dumb"), in which case any time you play it up and it inconveniences you, you get an extra XP. They are intentionally derpy.
