Character Classes for Dark Elves, Witch Elves, Disciple of Khaine, Sorceress

Arrogance and bitter hatred drive the followers of Malekith, the Witch King, to war against any they deem inferior. To these raiders, compassion and restraint are viewed as weakness, while cruelty and deceit are held as virtues. Countless victims have been claimed by these vicious and warlike people, taken as servants or sacrificed to their blood-thirsty god, Khaine.

Witch Elves

archetype: Melee DPS special mechanic: Blood Lust

class details: An offensive melee career, Witch Elves favor ambushes and quick attacks. Once they close in on their victims, Witch Elves become filled with a joyous and terrible Blood Lust, ultimately unleashing in a vicious Frenzy. Their dark blades can also absorb and corrupt the victim's own blood, briefly turning it into a deadly weapon in the Witch Elves' cruel hands.

description: The Witch Elves are the sanctified brides of Khaine, the Lord of Murder, and they serve their patron deity with savage pleasure. Wielding long daggers and prowling across the battlefield, the Witch Elves will sacrifice anyone and anything in their path as an offering to please the Bloody-Handed Lord.

mechanic: With each strike of their weapons, the Witch Elves drive themselves deeper into a furious bloodlust, until they finally sate themselves in a horrific frenzy. Using their Khaine-blessed weapons, a Witch Elf can slice into her enemy and then corrupt their very blood upon her blades, briefly granting even more power to her attacks.

master classes:

Carnage   A Mastery path focused on toe-to-toe combat.
The Path Of Carnage is mainly concerned with quickly and directly slaughtering anything that presents itself to the Witch Elf. Eschewing subtlety, a specialist in this path prefers to confront her enemies face-to-face...or at least, face-to-what's-left-of-their-face.

Suffering   A Mastery path focused on poisons and weakening effects.
The Path Of Suffering focuses more on effects that linger for some time, and a master in this path takes pleasure in leading her victims into a false sense of security. While her attacks may not seem dangerous at first, it's only moments later that the Witch Elf's enemy suddenly realizes that their death is imminent and there's nothing they can do to stop it.

Treachery   A Mastery path focused on surprise attacks and positional combat.
The Path Of Treachery appeals to those Witch Elves who prefer to stalk their prey, attacking when the target is unsuspecting. A master of this path performs best in the thick of large, chaotic combats, where her victims are kept busy and unsuspecting, and she prefers to strike the enemy at their unprotected flanks.

Disciple of Khaine

archetype: Healer special mechanic: Soul Reaping

class details: A front-line healer, Disciples use Soul Reaping to gather Soul Essence from their foes, striking them down in the name of Khaine. The Essences can then be used to invoke divine gifts of mending, healing, and support for their allies. In order to ensure that they have a steady supply of Essence available, Disciples must be active members at the front lines of the battle.

description: Dark priests of the Bloody Handed god, The Disciples of Khaine can be found on the frontline of any Druchii assault. In combat, the Disciple is a master of shifting the balance of a fight, for what they reap from their enemies they give to their allies - what was once your strength will soon become their own. Disciples must be watched carefully and their fell magic countered in short order or you will find your very essence trapped in servitude to Khaine.

mechanic: Using wicked ritual blades, a Disciple harvests the essence of their enemy and offers it to Khaine in exchange for blessings and dark powers. These dark gifts allow the Disciple to tend to the needs of the Dark Elven host, mending bones, suppressing pain, and even raising critically injured warriors to fight again.

master classes:

Dark Rites   A Mastery path focused on healing and restorative powers.
The Path Of Ritual is focused on the healing gifts that Khaine grants to his faithful priests. A master of this path will be able to focus more power into the essence that they tear from their enemies, greatly empowering their healing abilities.

Torture   A Mastery path focused on melee combat.
The Path Of Torture is a pious Mastery focused on worshipping Khaine - of course, Khaine demands this worship at the edge of a knife, and hears prayers only when bolstered by the screams of his enemies. A specialist in this Mastery has practiced long and well with their brutal sacrificial blades, and has trained themselves as deadly warriors.

Sacrifice   A Mastery path focused on siphoning power from your enemies.
The Path Of Sacrifice is a deceptive Mastery that simultaneously damages enemies and strengthens allies. Instead of focusing quite as much on either building or consuming essence, a master of this path favors attacks that not only damage the enemy but also momentarily steal away a portion of their strength.

archetype: Ranged DPS special mechanic: Dark Magic

class details: An offensive ranged attacker, Sorcerers and Sorceresses pull power recklessly from the Winds Of Magic, unleashing devastating magical attacks but putting themselves at risk as well. As Dark Magic builds up to greater and greater levels, all of the Sorcerers' attacks become much more powerful, bringing a correspondingly higher chance of causing a painful Backlash.

description: The Sorceresses of the Druchii are the true power of the Dark Elven armies. Blades may be turned aside and shields may be crushed, but what soldier can stop a flow of living shadow and darkness? Tearing the Winds Of Magic asunder, the Sorceresses bring forth devastation on an unimaginable scale, raining destruction down upon their helpless foes.

mechanic: The weak High Elves teach that the Winds Of Magic must be used in balance, through precise and careful craftings, but the Dark Elven Sorceresses scoff at their foolish cowardice. Every Dark Elf knows that when you want something, you simply take it - all of it. A Sorceress uses her Dark Magic to pull power indiscriminately from all the Winds Of Magic, driving her magical potency to levels that her weak High Elven cousins could scarcely dream of. The Winds themselves fight back against such overwhelming use of power, however, and reckless Sorceresses will find themselves facing a Backlash against their unnatural use of power, but such is the price of victory - and surely, any Dark Elves clumsy enough to be destroyed by their own Backlashes would clearly be too foolish to live long in Druchii society regardless, yes?

master classes:

Agony   A Mastery path focused on immediate damage.
The Path Of Agony is mainly concerned with slaughtering individual enemies in the messiest and most direct ways possible. This path contains a somewhat equal mix of volatile Dark Magic spells and more stable magic.

Calamity   A Mastery path focused on longer-duration effects.
The Path Of Calamity is favored by the more subtle and insidious covens of Sorceresses, and is primarily focused on longer-duration effects. A Master of Calamity prefers to hinder and wound their enemies over time, until the effects have built up enough that their foes arealready dead, and just don't realize it yet. This path has fewer Dark Magic abilities, andrelies more on a steady pace of destructive stable magic.

Destruction   A Mastery path focused on wide-area effects.
The Path Of Destruction is for the Sorceress who believes that killing an enemy is nothing but a waste oftime that could be much better spent killing ALL of their enemies. Spreading vast, sweepingswaths of darkness and death across the battlefield, the Masters of Destruction gamble the most heavily on numerous Dark Magic spells.
