Default Who you callin' dark?

The dark elves - so called for their evil and barbarous nature, but what drove them to this...
The elven kingdom of Ulthuan could have remained with one less enemy than their dwindling race now has if they had not been so foolish during their persecution of the cult of slaanesh. The cult was kept in check to a reasonable degree at that time that is until the nobles unfairly refused Malekith of his rightful position on the throne through underhand ways, his crime; being born of the cults leader and being a general rather than a court noble, is it any wonder then that when Naggarythe was cast to the bottom of the sea that he banned the cult of pleasure and turned to Khaine and the cult of murder to get his revenge!?!

If anyone has the right to be called 'dark' it is the conniving nobles of the high elves!

The Kith-meister was burnt by the eternal flame, ergo, no crowny for him.

But them High Elves aint squeaky clean either. They should have just slapped Morathi with a big dose of Anti-Chaos medicine (handily administed at the end of a sword) and sent the little bugger off to live with the gribblies at the bottom of the ocean. But no, they have to keep the little brat and his *ahem* questionable mother *ahem* alive and cause their own downfall...

So neither of the pointy eared freaks should be able to judge... because they are both judged equally inferior and pathetic in the eyes of the Slann ;D

Fluff is intereting. You can actually use scientific process on it reliably. There is Primary sources (Army entries, written by the games designers from an unbiased view) and Secondary sources (Fluff written through the eyes of Fantasy characters, therefore biased).

Now in the Secondary fluff from the Dark Elves it is true that they tell of the Flames of Asuryan being tainted and manipulated.

However, from the Primary source, Malektihs own army entry, it says he "stepped into the flames of Asuryan to prove himself worthy, but the flames would not accept his polluted body."

yep...because he had become a ruthless general 'unworthy' of the position of pheonix king - due to his enemies at court voting in Bel-Shannar in his place making him bitter and causing the flames of Asuryan to reject him

The problem is that there are two different versions of this story: the High Elf version (where the Dark Elves are evil), and the Dark Elf version (where the High Elves are evil).

Overall, however, the Dark Elves are at fault. They caused the War of The Beard, and Malekith (rightly or wrongly) was rejected by the flames. He also poisoned his rivals, which is clearly not the "elven" way of doing things.

Default Re: Who you callin' dark?

When the dark elves became the dark elves, their perception of what is good changed completely. They are evil, their is no question about that, although from their perspective being evil is the right thing to do. They probably think that the high elves are good, and hate them for it.
