Unironically, humans and eldar are not compatible and cannot produce hybrids. Trying is ill advised and carries a death penalty.


Fun is also heretical.

Actually there was a Human/Eldar Hybrid named in a Rogue Trader Book. And he was an ultrasmurf :P

But then again canon is all sorts of fucked (*hears slaneesh hissing in pleasure*)  So I guess its more up to what you want at the moment/for the setting :P

That is no longer canon alas, like much of Rogue Trader it was dropped in later editions as they figured out the setting. At that point it wasnt 40k so much as WHF IN SPACE!

The current canon is that not only do human and eldar have wildly different genetics (you have more in common with a jellyfish than a eldar), but also things like the specifics of conception (humans fertilize and done, Eldar make several distinct contributions to produce a viable fetus) and the fundamental materials that make up the body (eldar teeth are not enamel, their bones are not calcium, etc) mean that a human would have have about as much luck trying to crossbreed with a quartz deposit, even in a lab experiment.

Now... if one wanted, one could certainly ignore canon and do what they want... 4chan certainly does, but the canon is not ambiguous on the subject.

*throws arms up*  Canon? Where we are going we don't need cannon.  8-)

(Not like the Chaos God Matt Ward ever let canon stop him from his acts of heresy, why should I? X3)

Seeing as how we're all writers here, has anyone else considered putting in a submission to Black Library's Open Submissions Contest? 9 days left to the deadline.

http://www.blacklibrary.com/Home/write-for-black-library-info.html

I wrote a blurb-sample for a short story about a Munitorium supply clerk whose workplace gets invaded by criminal thugs...essentially Die Hard starring Melvin from The Office.

You only need to write a pitch and a 500-word sample for the deadline. If they like it and want to pay for a full story, then you get to write the whole thing.

I must admit, I'm very tempted to write something for the submission window. I wouldn't know what I would do as an idea though. Salamanders might be fun to write about, that or maybe an Assassin.

Rejoice Brothers, for today we bring glory to the Emperor
We are his Angels, the sons of his sons.
We are his hammer, his fist, his sword and his shield.
With faith unyielding we shall prevail.
Faith and Service is reward onto themselves
Steel yourselves Brothers!
For the Imperium! For the Emperor!

We may be few, and our enemies many. Yet so long as there remains one of us still fighting, one who still rages in the name of justice and truth, then by the Allfather, the galaxy shall yet know hope.
- Ragnar Blackmane -

We are the wolf that stalks
The stars in the sky
And swallows the star-fire
We hide amongst the night
When light is gone
The Light is within us
We run the ruin of Fire
In the darkness
Foes burn in our passing

Everything is canon, especially when it contradicts other canon.

And when in doubt, go with the bigger cannon.  (spelling intentional)

I hate that depression inducing kludge.

I went through hell IRL and came out from the other side. One thing I look at for in fiction is hope. If you have ever played a Good Karma character in Fallout, you've seen how even the wasteland can become a good place to live if the right person with the right skills bothers doing things.

WH40k is absolutely devoid of this hope. No one to root for, nothing to hope for.

I'm just not interested.

About the canon contradictions... All WH40k material is canon. Most of it is In-Universe propaganda from one faction or another.

Why did you bother posting in a WH40k thread if you're just going to blast the setting for personal reasons?

Also it's like everyone nowadays on the internet 'went through hell IRL'. What, how many buddies did you lose in the 'Nam?
