So, I'm not sure where I heard this, but...
A long time ago, I heard that Eldar sometimes (canonically) keep captured human POWs as pets. Likewise, when Imperial Guard regiments fight Eldar forces, the guardsmen are known at times to partake in raping Eldar women.
Can /tg/ confirm either of these?

>played netrunner, ascension, catan, flux for 7 hours straight until 2am
This is so much more fun than video games, thanks /tg/. We didn't get to play ascension with the expansion since it didn't arrive yet but it was still bretty gud.
Netrunner is probably my favorite card game right now, so feel free to turn this into a netrunner general.

How do you deal with characters who have abstract, reality-warping powers?
See, I offered to run a simple, rules-lite game for some people at my FLGS (new in town, never played with them before). I picked Magical Burst since I got to talk to them a bit and they liked Madoka. They found it cool.
Then, after some planning of characters, they all decided to take reality-warping powers. They said that the rules stated that their character's signature special power could be anything they wanted, and that the rules didn't stop them from choosing godly powers.
There are four characters each with one signature power, and these are the powers:
- Ability to steal anything. Steal someone's heart (literally or figuratively), steal the moon, steal the planet, steal someone's time, steal colors, steal loyalty.
- Ability to eat anything. Eat gravity, eat time, eat the world, eat someone, eat the concept of death.
- Ability to cut through anything. Cut time, cut the moon, cut space, cut someone's emotions, cut someone's thoughts, cut the concept of death.
- Ability to manipulate the boundaries between things. Manipulate the boundary between day and night, boundary between life and death, boundary between "this guy hates me" and "this guy is fanatically loyal to me," boundary between existing and not existing.
Magical Burst also entitles each of them to a single element of their choice. Which can be anything the player come up with. So they decided to distribute Fate, Matter, Mind, and Time between themselves.
I said "I'll think about it" because I couldn't afford to turn them down and say no as a first impression.
The game is in two days. What in the world should I do? I just wanted a game about magical girls fighting monsters of the week...

Some six weeks ago I showed up and went on a big spiel about WHH high, and how it could be seen as a deconstruction of WH40k. I've taken the time since then to write up my own attempt at bringing that idea full circle. What follows is the first part of that attempt.
Thanks to Eversor for the pic.
WARNING: This story is far, far darker than any presented in WHH before, and possibly one of the darkest things to ever grace these boards. If you don't want a healthy dose of chems, violence and criminal investigation mixed with your light romance, then tread carefully.

Time again for young warlords to futilely attempt at greatness in Cossack’s Most Glorious Nation Builder
“It is Glorious time to live in world young childs. In East great winged beast was born of fire form the Sun’s ever burning fire. An Alliance, very big and strong like ox has formed on weak and honor-less principle of money. A Commissar is viewed as almost-god by his peoples who can imagine him doing no wrong. In Western lands a mighty empire forms slowly regaining the lost glories of old. To the south another is shaping automatons in a forge of unimaginable heat as Life itself is being shaped on the islands in the Northern Seas. New nations arise to try hand at luck, other crumple to barbarian hordes that try and fails horribly to rival savage greatness of Most Glorious Cossack Peoples. Surely these times will be greatly interesting.”
The game will start when the map is posted.
New people welcome.
