HistoryEdit

Elswyr 2.jpg

Along the southern heart of Tamriel lays a land eroded, but stubbornly standing before the passage of time. Known as Elsweyr, the desert-ridden kingdom once bore the capital off all Tamriel, and stretched across a huge swath of the continent, even before the rise of the eldest of mer. This period of strength and unification has long since passed- now the sandy peaks and hills only bear eroded husks of cities destroyed by locals and disease. In many ways Elsweyr is a land of conflict, of confusion and uncertainty. The land itself changes from gentle, lush forests to moisture-sucking desert as one moves along it's length. More importantly, it is home to the beastmen Khajiit, who are primarily to blame for the regions undiluted chaos. Power-struggles among the locals are innumerate and bloodthirsty, racial conflicts threatening to thin out the Khajiiti people each passing of the moons. Only by the careful guiding hand of the Mane, the holy king, does the region survive.

Before the widespread Khajiit kingdoms, before the harmonious cooperation and control of all Tamriel, the Clan Mothers speak of the deities that gave the Khajiit life. Before the dawn of time, there existed only two gods, two litter mates- Ahnuur and Fadomai. These two beings gave birth to the first cat, Alkosh, who was given the guardianship of time. Pleased at their creation, Ahnuur and Fadomai brought forth more life into the world. Thus Khenarthi was created, to watch over the winds. Magrus, guardian of the son was too born, as well as Mara, and S'rendarr. Time once more slipped by and the liter-mates bathed in the happiness that was family. Still not satisfied they gave birth to a further litter- this time bearing Hircine of hunger, Merrunz of destruction, Mafala of the Clan mothers, Sangiin of blood and life, Sheogorath of insanity, and countless others. Growing tired of all these new beings, Anhurr decided to stop having children; further offspring would only dilute their own happiness and blood. The young beings convinced Fadomai that they need more brothers and sisters, so a final third liter was given birth, to the land and sea, the dusk and dawn, and the Moons and their motions. Anhuur caught wind of this, and angered, struck out at his liter-mate. Fearing for her children and life, Fadomai fled with these beings to the Great Darkness and hid, finally giving birth to Lorkhaj and Namiira. Growing old with age Fadomai realized that her time was soon over. She bid the Moons to be set into motion and guide her children, and protect them from their father's wrath. To her favored daughter Azurah, she granted her a grandchild who would become the Khajiit, blessed with many boons and gifts. Fadomai then passed away, and left these new creatures to live and prosper before Azurah.

So it passed that some Khajiit were led to the forests by the goddess, those fitted to climbing and moving about the foliage. Others were placed within the graze-lands to lead simple lives, others into the desert, where their strength and harsh mindset would most befit the wastes. Slowly as time advanced these new Khajiit prospered greatly, creating villages and farms, towns, and even later magnificent cities. In the early first Era the kingdom consisted of more than sixteen kingdoms, each holding countless cities and territory, spread out across most of Tamriel. All seemed well for the beastmen, united and prosperous as they were, until the sickness came. Angered at their homelessness, and loss of land, the slugfolk of Thras let loose a vile contagion onto all of man and mer. The sickness rolled across all of Tamriel, destroying civilizations and kingdoms as it went. Populations were decimated and cultures forever changed. For reasons unknown it struck the cat-people the hardest- nearly destroying their entire race over a period of few years. Where before the Khajiit had lived easy specialized lives, the survivors were forced into roles they never had chosen, polarizing their culture and changing the kingdom into only two separate states. Living in two very different regions, and bearing radically different mind-sets, Pellitine and Anequina were set for dire straights.

For centuries and centuries the Khajiit people became embittered and unhappy, forced to work for the very survival of their race. The northern desert-men were forced to live among now-empty deserts, striking out a living beneath sun and upon sand. Those to the south focused upon farming and trading with the kingdoms of man and mer, living easier and complacent lives. Time and time again the northern barbarians would congregate and plunge the region into war, opposing the soft and decadent states of the south. Two hundred years after the Great Sickness, the respective leaders of the territories came to a conclusion- the lands would have to unite or forever be doomed to death and conflict. Keirgo of Anequina and Eshita of Pellitine thus agreed to marry and attempt to congregate the two kingdoms- and for a time it succeeded. Mere years after the unification a great class struggle occurred, each clan and house fighting for dominance of the new land of Elsweyr. Vicious and heated conflicts became common-place, the nearby provinces nearly jumping in to try to stop the bloodshed. It is within this self-hatred a Khajiit appeared, bearing the name of Rid-T'har-ri'Datta. Moving through the land as a holy-man, the strange khajiit spoke of a way to grant all the clans and different cities power. This Mane thus created the pact of the bi-lunar shadow, granting power unto the north and south in a rotational power base. It was decreed that the southern city-dwellers, and nobles, would share power with the nomadic tribes and their chieftains, each in turn, based upon the phases of Masser and Secunda. Since this fateful day the holy Mane has been reborn upon the alignment of Masser and Secunda, to continue to lead the Khajiiiti people in all his wisdom, collected over his previous lives.

During the Fourth Era the moons of Masser and Secunda vanished, plunging the terrified Khajiiti people into chaos. Without the moons they were not able to see to it that the bi-lunar shadow be monitored, let alone enforced. Despite the Mane's best wishes Elsweyr teetered on the brink of new power struggles, new infighting and war. Two slow, agonizing years later the Moons rolled back into view, and the Thalmor announced they had used magic to restore them. Bolstered by this magnificent act, and growing support for the elves, the Khajiiti people over-threw the Imperial-backed government and did away with the Mane's leadership. For the first time in millennia the independent kingdoms of Anequina and Pelletine were reformed, and subsequently placed under the stern guidance of the Thalmor.


The Land of ElsweyrEdit

Elswyr 1.jpg

Pellitine:

The southern expanses of the Khajiiti Kingdoms are tropical rainforests and deep lush foliage and called Pa'alatiin to antiquity. Here glades and groves supporting sugarcane plantations have fostered a diverse and fertile sedentary agrarian society. The principle industries revolve around the cultivation of sugarcane and saltrice plantations. Despite this agriculture the south is also highly industrialized and urbanized with a strong tapestry of mercantilism. In fact, the Khajiit are said to have been amongst the very first widespread traders and had a well established system before the Atmorans had came to the shores of Tamriel in the late Merithic era. Perhaps as much because of the Tenmar forests in the far south this leads to a very different nature of the Pellitine's which is antithetical to the desert roaming nature of the Northern Khajiit. These people are said to be eminently civilized, niceties and pleasantries are paramount and they look to their northern neighbors in Anequina as barbarians. However, they are widely decried as decadent and depraved in the North, and there is some truth to this in that Skooma and Moon sugar have taken their toll socially in places such as Rimmen.


Anequina:

The term Khajiit is said to have come from two principle words, Khaj meaning desert, and iit which is the suffix meaning 'one who does'. There is an old saying for them that there is nothing to do in the desert but walk, which allows them their name Khajiit, 'desert striders'. The Khajiit that live in these straits are typically nomadic though a number of cities exist, generally along the Cyrodiil and Valenwood borders. The northern cities tend not to be quite as inhabited as the sedentary south but this has made them centers of trade and travel not habitation. Despite this close proximity there has been no more of the Khajiit of Anequina to take advantage of chaos and expand their holdings into Cyrodiil at any time. The people are warlike and barbarous yet their mentality and legacy have ensured that they have never been externally conquered but dealt with by treaty. This has fostered a distinct independent and warrior like culture. Yet the expansionist ideals are minimal, allowing mostly for defense of their realm against slow encroaching aggressors like the Bosmer. They are derided in the south for being uncouth barbarians and the title isn't seen to be far wrong given the higher disposition of the more aggressive breeds as well as frequent raiding of neighboring areas. This may very well be a drive to survive given the nature of the harsh desert sands.


Khajiit Sub-SpeciesEdit

Tes moons.jpg

The Khajiit are bound to the mystical force called the Lunar Lattice, or ja'Kha'jay. Depending on the phases of Masser and Secunda, at their birth, a Khajiit will be marked and fated to grow into a particular subrace. At birth all Khajiit bear an uncanny resemblance to kittens. Over a mere few weeks they begin to grow and change rapidly, at the end of this time clearly showing their subrace.


Ohmes: (New Messer, Full Secunda)

Ohmes are short and wispy, greatly resembling the Bosmer of Valenwood. Because of the easy association, and the Khajiit dislike for Bosmer, the Ohmes frequently tattoo their faces to resemble a feline-aspect. They are the most common form seen outside of the province of Elsweyr, taking advantage of other races' preference to their appearance to serve in positions of ambassadorship and trade.


Ohmes-raht: (New Messer, Waxing Secunda)

Ohmes-raht are potentially the most man-like in physiology and temperament, their only physical difference that of a short wispy layer of fur. Because they so greatly resemble man they are often mistaken for such at a distance.


Suthay: (New Messer, New Secunda)

Suthay are similar to Suthay-rahts in all respects, save that they are slightly smaller.


Suthay-raht: (New Messer, Waning Secunda)

The most common breed encountered in Cyrodiil, Morrowind and Skyrim, the Suthay-raht is man-like in size and strength, and for this reason make suitable warriors. The coloring of their fur varies wildly, in various different shades, some with or without spots and stripes. Suthay-raht are often referred to as "Ja'Khajiit" (meaning "kitten") by those of other races; this appellation often strikes the Khajiit as odd, said title being one of their names for Mehrunes Dagon. Like nearly all forms of Khajiit they walk upon the balls of their feet.


Cathay: (Waxing Masser, Full Secunda)

Greatly resemble the Suthay-raht. They are somewhat larger in stature and strength, and much more heavy set, comparable to a large Orc or Nord.


Cathay-raht: (Waxing Masser, Waxing Secunda)

Standing in at more than eight feet tall, Cathay-rahts are the most beastly and huge bipedal form of Khajiit. Their fangs and claws are much more prominent than their brethren, their body much more solid and heavily muscled. All Khajiit greatly value this subrace as bodyguards and heavy attack infantry, their sheer bulk and strength nearly unmatched by any man or mer. Other races have dubbed these Khajiiti 'Jaguar Men' for their signature morphology and frequent spotted fur.


Tojay: (Waxing Masser, New Secunda)

Live in the southern marshes and jungle regions of Elsweyr, as well as the Tenmar forest. Further study is required.


Tojay-raht: (Waxing Masser, Waning Secunda))

Probably a larger version of the Tojay. Further study is required.


Alfiq: (Waning Masser, Full Secunda))

Greatly resemble housecats in size and shape. Although rather diminutive they are just as intelligent as the other forms of Khajiit, if not more-so. They are unable to converse with their brethren but can frequently make their will known, in usual house-cat fashion. Alfiq are able to manipulate magicka and cast spells.


Alfiq-raht: (Waning Masser, Waxing Secunda))

Much larger than their Alfiq brethren, this subspecies weighs in at nearly sixty pounds. They are more lean and shorter haired than the Alfiq, giving them a skeletal appearance, and have something of a more man-like face. Alfiq-rahts are part magical in nature, which leads to them all being powerful spellcasters. Their magical might is only matched by their laziness.


Dagi: (Waning Masser, New Secunda)

A less-common form of Khajiit, Dagi live in the trees of the Tenmar Forrest. Due to their smaller size and light weight, they are able to dwell in the higher branches which even the Bosmer cannot reach. The Dagi have a natural affinity for magic, and are known spellcasters, a characteristic often taken advantage of in Khajiiti battle-tactics.


Dagi-raht: (Waning Masser, Waning Secunda)

Similar in all respects to the Dagi, while somewhat larger, however not overly so as they are able to dwell in higher tree branches, like the Dagi. It can be assumed that, like their smaller cousins, they are naturally skilled in the use of magic.


Pahmar: (Full Masser, New Secunda)

Greatly resemble tigers in morphology, though they frequently weigh a bit more. These loyal beasts are unable to speak, like the Alfiq, but like the tiny Khajiit are intelligent. Among the Khajiit it is thought there is no better companion then that of a Pahmar- not only for their devotion but also their immense strength and speed.


Pahmar-raht: (Full Masser, Waning Secunda)

Larger than the Pahmar. Stronger-set and weightier, but rather short-limbed and slow. Their ursine-like morphology makes them unsuitable as mounts. They probably prefer it that way.


Senche: (Full Masser, Full Secunda)

Seven feet tall at the shoulders, and weighing as much as twenty men, the Senche are the willing steeds of the Khajiit race. Though temper-minded the Senche's minds are slightly dull- they are not nearly as bright as the other subraces. This is not to say they are dumb- these Khajiit are well smarter than horses or dogs, or nearly any animal. Senche are very warm and protective toward their bipedal cousins.


Senche-raht: (Full Masser, Waxing Secunda)

Undoubtedly the most massive breed of Khajiit, Senche-rahts can grow to more than twice an Altmer's height, and weigh more than fifty men. They are built much more stocky than other Khajiit, with short front limbs, greatly resembling a bear in morphology. Their minds seem to have regressed as their bodies flourished leaving the beasts rather dim-witted. They are gentle in disposition, making them ideal beasts of burden. During wartime they are frequently armored up and used as war platforms.


The Mane: (Moons Aligned)

A Mane can be born only under a rare alignment of Masser and Secunda when, according to legend, a third moon appears in the sky. In olden times, the Khajiit would shave off their own manes in deference to the Mane, braiding them into locks that he would incorporate into his own, gigantic mane. Over time, as the population grew, this ritual became impractical. Thus, while all Khajiit continue to remove their manes in deferential respect, they do so largely as a symbolic sacrifice, disposing of the shorn locks. The current Mane, however, continues to wear the braids of his own tribe, as well as those of his Warrior Guard, which encompasses hundreds of Khajiit. In fact, so weighted down by the hair of his kinsmen is he that the Mane cannot move without aid, and travels about the countryside by means of a Cathay-raht supported palanquin.

ArmyEdit

More than any other race, or Kingdom, or provenance, the Khajiit are raiders and skirmishers of utmost excellence. They are a terror to match in combat, for the beastmen hold no concept of a fair-fight, nor any shred of resemblance to orthodox fighting tactics. Nor can one approach them in a wholly usual fashion- with the twenty-some subraces fighting in their own specialized fashions. Small house-cat like Khajiit glide across the ground silently, hurling fireballs and arcs of lightning, disappearing into oblivion in the blink of an eye. Great tiger-beasts as large as mammoths roll across the sands, laden with quilted canvas and wooden shields, biting men in half with casual ease. And beneath all this chaos comes the real threat- the vicious and hard-hitting Cathay and Suthay, striking hard with throwing weapons and spear, darting around the enemy and striking wherever weakness shows. The Khajiiti people don't believe in wearing heavy armor, not at all- within the uncaring, moisture-sucking land of Elsweyr it is hardly intelligent. Instead they garb themselves in boiled leathers, thin-lacquered plates, or stride into combat with only their silky garbs covering their chest-fur. Their armament and weapons are only further bolstered by their physiology- each and every subrace of Khajiit can see in the dark perfectly, blessed by Azurah. Under the veil of night they are able to strike when other forces are helpless, only seeing the glowing, flashing eyes in the blackness, heard by the cracks of thrown weapons. Within the cover of darkness, where they were born and raised by the gods themselves, the Khajiit are without equal.

This book contains the rules for fielding the Warriors of Elsweyr in games of Scrollhammer.


General RulesEdit

Khajiit Racial Traits:

All Khajiiti have Eye of Night (do not need to roll for night fighting). Most of the subspecies have Claws (open hands are considered Hand Weapons, duel wielded if both are open), sans for Ohmes and Ohmes-raht, both of whom are nearly human in form. Any bonus attack for having claws is not included in unit attributes unless otherwise noted.

Note that all Khajiiti that have a Beast unit type are Fleet of Foot.


Reserved:

Some units are reserved and cautious- they are not required to pile in to engage in close combat, only to remain in coherency. If they are Characters, they cannot take part in Challenges in any way(a Reserved model not fighting in a Challenge does not count as refusing the Challenge). So long as there are no enemy units adjacent to the reserved unit it may use ranged weapons and cast spells as though a separate unit, also being able to draw line of sight through the unit it is joined to.


Moon SugarEdit

At the start of the Khajiit player's turn they receive a DRUGS token for each Hero unit alive, deployed on the battlefield. Clan Mothers instead provide 2 tokens. At any time these tokens may be spent to increase the power of a Khajiit unit. For each token spent you may grant a target unit or target character one of the following bonuses. These effects last for the rest of that turn-

  • +1 Weapon Skill and -1 Leadership
  • +1 Strength and -1 Leadership
  • +1 Initiative and -1 Leadership

While multiple different bonuses can be granted to the same unit the same modifier cannot be applied twice in the same turn. A khajiit player may also spend 3 DRUGS tokens at the same time on a single unit to provide a more powerful effect. If this is done the target Khajiit unit has a permanent -1 Ld penalty for the remainder of the game and gains one of the following special rules for the rest of that turn-

  • Counter-Attack
  • Feel No Pain

Unspent DRUGS tokens are lost at the start of the Khajiit player's turn, then new DRUG tokens are granted based on surviving deployed HQ units. Note that units that are not Khajiit (i.e. War Elephants) may not receive any bonuses from DRUG tokens- in this case only the crew would be effected.

HeroesEdit

NobleEdit

The Nobles of Elsweyr are the politicians, diplomats, and leaders of the southern Khajiit cities. Nobles are not necessarily born to nobility, as it is more of a honorary title for a financially and politically powerful Khajiit. The paths to wealth are many in Elsweyr- trading, fighting, or even smuggling goods. Because they frequently have questionably legal methods of financial backing, these 'noble' are all-to-often targets of backstabbing and power attempts by rivals. Still, the common Khajiit look up to these men and women, to a degree. For they too were once part of the common rabble, only to claw their way up onto the top of the heap. It is only fitting that these opportunistic scoundrels form the high ranks of the Khajiit.

ChieftainEdit

Khajiit chief.jpg

The far north end of Elsweyr is home to warbands and nomadic tribes. Basic daily activities for these folk are a great strain, sometimes even a literal struggle, leaving many bitter and harried. Rival tribes are fought, wild-life hunted, and goods scrapped from the decaying husks of the once great civilization of Elsweyr. Within this realm these Khajiit are led by their chieftains. Born and raised to be warriors and leaders to their clans, these men and women fight for well-being and glory of their people. While not leading their men into war, or settling disputes, chieftains are able to be challenged by their clan-mates. This is normally a rare occurrence due to the high amount of respect chieftains command, but as a result these figures are only the most grizzled and capable of Khajiit warrior.

Clan MotherEdit

Where the Nobles and Chieftains see to the bodily and mental needs of the people, the enigmatic Clan Mothers provide spiritual support for the Khajiit. These elderly women easily hold the most power among the Khajiit- for not only do they whisper of the teachings and lessons of Ahnurr and Fadomai, and of past myths and legends, but also see to the production and manufacture of the beloved Moon Sugar. Not even the Mane, or leader of the Khajiit is above the Clan Mothers in power- should they widely voice disapproval over a Mane's action it is immediately redacted. Beloved and immensely respected by the Khajiiti, the words and teachings of the Clan Mothers are regarded as law.

While not a warrior per se, Clan Mothers are fully capable of marching out with their Khajiit clan. During battle these elderly Khajiit compliment the mainstay infantry with spells and commands, also providing much needed leadership.

Alfiq-rahtEdit

Alfiq-raht.jpg

Similar to the Alfiq, the Alfiq-raht is an immensely rare and uncommon form of Khajiit. In stature they are very similar to their smaller brethren, and equally intelligent. The main difference is that of their size- while the smaller Alfiq might be as much as twenty pounds, this particular kind weighs easily thrice that.

In the presence of an Alfiq-raht it quickly becomes apparent that the beast is somewhat otherworldly. A mage might note the crackling nimbus of energy surrounding the thing, a warrior the intense glint in their eyes. Both observations would be acute- while the Alfiq-rahts are laziest among lazy forms of Khajiit, they are also surprisingly powerful spellcasters. That's not to say their services are easy to acquire - to beckon the beasts into combat or servitude they must first be heavily bribed by other Khajiit, doted upon with Moon Sugar and trinkets. When they are actually convinced to enter battle they are a spectacle to behold- gliding along the ground with graceful ease, silently dishing out impressive feats of magick, even hopping between Mundus and Oblivion seemingly at will.

CoreEdit

WarriorsEdit

Khajiit spearman.jpg

The mainstay bulk of Elsweyr Forces, most frequently these warriors are the race of Suthay-raht. While on average slightly less imposing than some Orcs or Nords, the innate ferocity and natural claws easily make up for this. The armament and gear of Khajiit very greatly by clan and region, though they normally wear light leather armor and use curved swords, spears, or their claws. The Elsweyr Warrior's preferred tactic is to hit hard and fast at night when other races are at a disadvantage.

6 pts per model. Core. Fight in Ranks, Infantry, Khajiit. 10-30 models per unit.

KhajdarEdit

Khajiit desertwalkers.jpg

The Khajdar, or Desert Walkers, are the warriors of the deep desert. Dwelling where no other man or mer can live, the Khajiit live off of the inhospitable land, carving out an existence in the dunes and flats. It is there they live an excruciatingly difficult life - slaying monstrous beasts for food, trawling the sands for precious water, and occasionally fighting opposing clans. These Khajiiti are also naturally exceptionally skilled desert warriors. Often they appear out of the howling sands with little to no warning, striking down interlopers that tread upon Elsweyr. During large incursions the Khajdar will form a warband with their Chieftain and besiege enemies under the cover of night.

8 pts per model. Core. Skirmish, Infantry, Khajiit. 10-20 models per unit.

Ohmes SkirmishersEdit

Ohmes.gif

Due to their natural agility and small size, Ohmes make ideal skirmishing infantry. The nimble Khajiit are able to dance around larger forces, peppering them with stones and arrows. Their strongest skill is not straight-up fighting however but trap-laying. Ohmes are masters of hiding themselves in foliage, laying wait in ambush for enemies to pass by. Upon receiving a signal they are than able to sprint out of cover in the ground and take foes by surprise, often outflanking them entirely. This ambush role can compliment Cathay or Suthay-raht well- once the initial lines meet the Ohmes can sandwich the unsuspecting foe, or simply attack first to set up a charge for allies. When used well they can throw enemy forces entirely into disarray.

7 pts per model. Core. Skirmish, Infantry, Khajiit. 10-20 models per unit.

On a success, the unit is deployed at the position of the token and may still perform all actions as normal this turn. On a failure, the ambush goes wrong and the unit is destroyed.

Ohmes can only Ambush with joined characters that are Alfiq, Alfiq-raht, or Ohmes.

EliteEdit

Cathay.jpg

Jaguar MenEdit

Dubbed Jaguar Men by the Imperials, the ferocious Cathay are among the largest and beefiest bipedal Khajiit. Each stands nearly seven feet tall and are heavily muscled, their claws and teeth more prominent than the other subspecies. The Khajiit favor them as personal bodyguards or shock-and-awe troops, frequently giving them heavier armor and great weapons. When properly equipped the Cathay are a force to be reckoned with - and it's for this reason that the Mane favors them as Warrior Guard.

13 pts per model. Elite. Fight in Ranks, Infantry, Khajiit. 10-20 models per unit.

Khajiit hussar.jpg

HussarsEdit

Rather then using horses Khajiit instead use the Senche- massive tiger-like beasts, for transportation and warmounts. Each Senche is staggeringly massive, some larger than draft horses in both size and weight. The beasts intellect also makes them perfectly suited as steeds. Despite their bestial stature they are equally as intelligent as their bipedal brothers and sisters. On the battlefield their handlers can whip the Senche into a frenzy, carried forth by them across the battlefield on large hops and strides. There is no more frightening cavalry then the senche- claws and teeth flashing and tearing apart foes with alarming ease. The so called Desert Riders also make fine anti-cavalry units due to the beasts very scent frightening horses.

20 pts per model. Elite. Skirmish, Cavalry, Khajiit. 5 to 15 models per unit. May only be joined by Independent Characters who are also riding Senche.

Pahmar.jpg

Pahmar PrideEdit

Smaller than the Senche, Pahmars greatly resemble lions and tigers in shape and size. Though they may not be ridden as mounts by the Suthay-raht, or similar Khajiit, they instead form large packs and act as a fast-attacking infantry unit. Their ferocity is unmatched by the other subraces- the Pahmar are bestial enough, and mean enough to let their instincts wholly take over in combat. It is on battlefields that they pounce into enemy infantry amid feral cries and howls, teeth and claws searching for weak spots in armor, exposed vital points. Nearly no infantry can stand before an angry pack of Pahmar and not be torn asunder.

16 pts per model. Elite. Horde, Beast, Khajiit. 5-15 models per unit.

Alphas may take up to 15 pts of magic items where appropriate from the armory, but only rings or amulets.


DosEdit

The Khajiit have long been captured and traded as slaves by the other races, torn from their homes and forever placed into servitude. As a result the felines take the topic of self-defense very seriously. Complimented by their natural claws, Khajiit have mastered forms of martial arts over centuries of worry. Many styles have been created, including Goutfang, Whispering Fang, and Rawlith Khaj.

In various places within Elsweyr there exist monasteries of monks, those that practice and teach the use of these martial arts. It is somewhat uncommon for the warrior monks to leave the monasteries. Under times of great need or cajoling they might set out to join another fighting unit. The most common battlefield style is that of Goutfang, which teaches how to make short work of infantry, either by tearing open vital spots or transmitting force through armor.

Though less common, Whispering Fang and Rawlith Khaj are equally as lethal as Goutfang. Whispering Fang teaches the art of making sudden and viciously fast attacks from a stand-still, striking down an enemy, hard, before they can even react. Rawlith Khaj is more of a self-defense style than the others- normally it teaches the non-lethal subduing of a foe, pinning them or deflecting oncoming attacks. Although this one is mostly passive it can still be butchered into an offensive style by breaking joints and limbs.

Regardless of the style, Dos warriors are able to form an impassible line of infantry, shielding weaker portions of an army with expert fighting skills and stubborn toughness.

20 pts per model. Elite. Skirmish, Infantry, Khajiit. 8-20 models per unit.

SupportEdit

DagiEdit

Dagi2.jpg

Dagi are small and nimble Khajiit native to the Tenmar Forest. These Khajiit are able to swing from tree to tree, flinging themselves between cover with surprising alacrity. The beasts are somewhat unrefined and uncivilized, sharing many quirks and personality traits with monkeys. Still, they are natural at using bow, throwing weapons, and even rocks from the canopy. Dagi are also naturals with a few schools of magic such as Destruction and Illusion. Many a foe has suddenly had fire reigned down upon them from treetops by until-then unnoticed Dagi.

Alfiq JosEdit

These are the mainstay magick artillery of the Khajiit forces.

For a long time believed to not exist, Alfiq are a small subspecies of Khajiit that greatly resemble housecats. Despite their tiny size, and inability to speak, these beasts are remarkably intelligent. All of them are able to understand spoken words, though they seldom give any acknowledgement or attempt to communicate with the other subraces.

What is most remarkable about the Alfiq is their ability to use magic. Small as they are, contained within each is a mind comparable to any man or mer sorcerer, though much more lazy. When hired on to fight during wartime the tiny Alfiq follow around a unit of larger Khajiit, using their bigger brothers and sisters as literal meatshields, casting magic as needed.

45 pts per model. Support. Independent Characters, Fast Beast, Khajiit. 2-5 models per unit.

Name WS BS S T W I A Ld Mg Sv
Alfiq 2 4 1 1 2 4 1 7 8 5+

Wargear: Claws

Special Rules: Reserved

The Second Barrier (an Alfiq's armour save may not be made worse than 5+)

Fight Another Day: At the start of the Fight sub-step of any close combat phase you may have the Alfiq attempt to disengage from the unit it is joined to. Perform an initiative test for the Alfiq- on a success it immediately leaves the unit and moves 6" in a direction of your choosing, potentially joining a different unit in the process.

An Alfiq may take up to two spells from this book's spell list as follows:

  • Any Alteration Spell +5 pts
  • Any Destruction Spell +15 pts
  • Any Illusion Spell +20 pts
  • Any Mysticism Spell +10 pts

  • Summon Dremora (cast on 9+) +20 pts
  • Summon Clannfear (cast on 11+) +30 pts

An Alfiq may purchase 20 points of magic items from the armory where appropriate- though it may only purchase rings and amulets.


BattlecatEdit

The Senche-raht is the largest of all the sub-species of Khajiit, easily weighing the equivalent of fifty men. Wildly different in form than other Khajiit, they stand nearly twelve feet tall and are very heavily muscled, more reminiscent of a gorilla or bear than cat. Their front legs are also somewhat longer than the rear, giving them a plodding shuffle of a walk. The massive cats are surprisingly lax with their brethren- frequently serving as beasts of labor and muscle for odd jobs. It is in the battlefield, however, that the Senche-rahts truly shine. For in wartime the massive Khajiit are laden with wooden shields, thick quilted canvas, and ridden upon as mobile war platforms. From the height the litter-mate, or master, is able to goad the beast into viciously attacking any foes. Other riders balance along the rear of the Senche-raht with bow or spear, picking off stragglers that escape its wrath.

Senche-rahts have something of a history with fighting the Imperial Legion. After the very first encounters commanders became wary of the beasts, not only for their fighting prowess, but also because of the effect on horses. Native Cyrodilic equines seemed to nearly go insane at the sheer scent of the beasts. This, in addition to their ferocity, has led to the Imperial Guard to give them the moniker 'Battlecats'.

120 pts for Battlecat and riders. Support. Skirmish, Monstrous Creature, Khajiit. Single Model (1 Senche-raht, 1 Litter-Mate, 2 Riders). (Monstrous Fast Cavalry).

Name WS BS S T W I A Ld Mg Sv
Litter-Mate 4 2 3 3 (4) 1 3 0 9 1 5+
Rider 4 4 3 3 (4) 1 3 1 7 1 5+
Senche-raht 4 0 7 5 4 4 3 7 0 5+

Wargear: Riders have Shortbows and Battle Garb. The Litter-mate has Battle Garb and is unarmed.

Shields: The Senche-raht is protected by thick canvas and shields along the flanks. This provides it with a 5+ armor save.

Special Rules:

Supreme Predator: The Senche-raht causes Fear. Against horse Cavalry, it causes Terror. The Senche-raht has the movement speed of Fast Cavalry, while retaining the other rules of a Monstrous Creature.

Handler: If the Litter-Mate is slain the Senche-raht gains the Frenzy special rule.

War Platform: Attack and ranged hits are randomly distributed among the types of models- on 1- they strike the Litter-Mate, 2-3 the riders, and 4+ the Senche-raht.

The entire unit of Riders may upgrade their weapons to

  • Glass +3 pts per Rider

The entire unit may be upgraded to

  • Support, (for free). One of the riders is removed to make room for extra shields. This allows the unit to deploy a wooden platform once per game, after deployment or during your movement phase. The unit may not move or charge the turn the platform is deployed. Deploy a 5" long barricade within 3" of the Senche-raht. This counts as difficult terrain that provides a 5+ cover save for the remainder of the game.
  • War, for +20 pts. The Senche-raht's, rider's, and litter-mate's armor are upgraded to Banded Mail, upgrading the armor saves to 4+. One of the riders may replace his shortbow with a Lance.


War ElephantEdit

In addition to the Battle-cats, Khajiiti have also trained and tamed local Elephants. Much like the other beasts, these creatures are used for construction, safe travel, and for war. There are two different kinds native to Elsweyr- the larger desert ones and smaller, more intelligent ones native to Terromar and the northern grazelands. The massive Elephant's size rivals the weight of other similarly-used animals, such as mammoths and silt striders, making them terrors to behold in combat. Clever, tough, and immensely strong, they are quite able to carry a handful of Khajiit upon their backs in addition to heavy armor. Thick pocked hide covered with maille sheets makes them nearly impervious to harm. More often than not War Elephants are simply thrown into enemy formations with almost reckless wanton.

160 pts for War Elephant and riders. Support. Skirmish, Monstrous Creature, Khajiit(rider). Single Model (1 Mahavat, 3 Riders). (Monstrous Cavalry)

Name WS BS S T W I A Ld Mg Sv
Rider 2 3 3 3 (4) 1 4 1 9 1 5+
Elephant 4 0 6 6 5 2 4 6 0 4+

Wargear: Riders have Bows and Battle Garb. The Mahavat has no weapons and wears Battle Garb.

Implacable: The Elephant is naturally durable and is armored with both quilted canvas and maille. This provides it with a 4+ armor save.

Special Rules: Causes Terror, Stubborn

Handler: If the Mahavat is slain the Elephant must automatically take its Monster Reaction test(see the Scrollhammer Rulebook). The Mahavat may not make any attacks or fire weapons while he is alive- all of his attention is spent on keeping the beast under control.

Tamed Monster: War Elephants have the Bestial Instinct special rule, but while the Mahavat is alive, they may make any Leadership tests (even those required to be made on their own value) on the Mahavat's value instead.

The entire unit of Riders may upgrade their weapons to

  • Silver +2 pts per rider
  • Glass +4 pts per Rider

The War Elephant may

  • Upgrade its armor to Banded Mail for +20 pts, increasing the armor save to 3+.
  • Replace one rider, and all bows with a mounted Ballistae for +20 pts. This weapon fires with the following profile- Move And Fire, 36” range, S6 AP6, Multiple Wounds (d3), rolls 3d6 for armour penetration against buildings. For each unsaved wound(before multiplying) caused by a shot, resolve a hit at -1S -1AP against the closest model(randomly chosen if tied) in that same unit that is directly behind the wounded model(from the perspective of the shortest distance that can be fired between the Ballistae pieces and the unit being shot at). The Ballistae requires one rider (ignoring the handler) in order to fire.
  • Add wrecking balls and chains to the tusks, for +20 pts. When charging(but not counter-attacking), the War Elephant automatically inflicts an additional d3 hits against the enemy. This occurs regardless of whether or not it is allowed a charge bonus.
  • Upgrade to petulant, for +10 pts. When rolling for charge distance Petulant elephants roll four dice and select the three highest. When charging through cover simply roll three dice.


Special CharactersEdit

J'zargoEdit

Jzargo.jpg

A powerful and arrogant sorcerer of rare caliber, J'zargo was a member of The College of Winterhold during the Skyrim crisis. Something of a complex fellow, the Khajiit was at times humble, mostly arrogant, and shared many outlooks of the dead Dunmer house of Telvanni. In his own words, J'zargo felt that he needed to prove himself, due to Khajiit not being known as wizards. Whether or not this was true, he recklessly perused all forms of magic power available to him. Everything short of rituals and forbidden magic tests were used in his quest for power. In addition to his overbearing confidence, J'zargo was also highly competitive, using less-than-honest methods to rise in rank. For a time it seemed as though he would rise to become Archmage of the College. As luck would have it this turned out not to be the case.

210 pts. J'zargo can be taken as a replacement for an Alfiq-raht, or as a replacement for a Court Wizard in a Holds of Skyrim list that contains the Dovahkiin. Independent Character, Skirmish, Infantry, Khajiit, Single Model.

Name WS BS S T W I A Ld Mg Sv
J'zargo 3 5 3 3 3 4 3 10 7(9) -

Wargear: Magick Robes, the Fulmination

The Fulmination: Is a staff that causes all electric-type Destruction spells to strike at +1S.

  • J'zargo may replace his robes with a personally enchanted suit of Ebony Plate (3+ armor save, 5+ ward save) for +40 pts.

Spells: Lightning Storm, Lightning Bolt, Flames, Lower Resists, Magicka Drain, Silence, Ward, Flame/Frost/Shock Shell.

Special Rules: Claws (Already included in profile), Fleet of Foot, Guardian Stone: The Mage

Great Scholar: While mages frequently carry ambitions of political power, J'zargo greatly eschews such practices, instead only wishing to grow in magical might. J'zargo is meticulously trained- he has +2 to his spellcasting rolls and worn armor does not give him Weakened Magicka.


The ManeEdit

The mane.jpg

The Mane is a holy king of the Khajiit people, only born under the rare occurrence of an aligned Messa and Secunda. History tells that the first Mane to appear united class disputes among the Khajiiti people, prevented war, and instituted the two-moons-dance. All of the Khajiiti people look to the mane as a nearly divine being, and hold him in deepest regard. Such is their reverence for him that the Mane dwells within his own palace-city, known as Torval- a massive bastion made up of palaces, grown of Valenwood trees, surrounded by meadows and sugarcane gardens. Holy as the city is outsiders are not allowed to walk upon its streets.

Astronomer, prophet, and king, the Mane sees to it that Elsweyr prospers and the peace is kept. Since the coming of Rid-T'har-ri'Datta, the Manes have been the ones to measure and enforce the bi-lunar shadow of the two-moons-dance, or the seasonal passing of power from North to South. As can be expected this grants the Mane great political power- if need be a simple word could remove a noble from power, or shut down a clan. Naturally the Mane's words might be vetoed by large disapproval of the Clan-Mothers, but even then, the Mane holds great military power as well.

It is tradition among the Khajiit to shave their manes, and for the holy king to then braid these into his own massive hair-locks. Since time immaterial this has become impractical- though personal manes are still ritually shaved, the prophet now only bears the hair of his own warrior guard. Many hundred Khajiit in size, this clan is made up of only the most gnarled and physically strong Khajiiti. Sworn to serve him unto death, the mane's warrior guard are nearly warrior-slaves, possessionless, fighting for and protecting the Khajiiti with mindless passion.

Though the Mane seldom exposes himself to the rigors of war (Or his people would allow him to), there comes a time when the holy king himself must be called to battle. When such a thing happens his entire warrior clan marches into action. Cathay-rahts, Pahmar-rahts, Senche-raht, all are laden up with sacred gear and doted upon with many enhancing drugs. The mane himself is carried upon a massive stone Palanquin by countless Cathays, garbed in lacquered plates, bearing the sacred crown of Ja'Khajiit. Though no fighter by any definition, his personal guard are countless and unmatched, his mere presence able to whip the army into a fervor.

Symbols of Office: Count as two silver close combat weapons.

Mantle of Ja'Khajiit: The Mantle of Ja'Khajiit is an ancient Elven headrest that confers great powers upon the wearer. It provides The Mane with +1T, a 5+ ward save against Magick, and allows him to make a special shooting attack once per turn with the following profile:

Great Palanquin: The Mane's palanquin is supported upon the backs of countless Cathay-raht, or jaguar men. Foes that come too close can be pawed and bit at by these Khajiit, and it also offers protection from its sturdy construction. These following rules apply-

  • The Cathay-raht attack 2d6 times in melee and cannot gain a bonus for charging
  • The Cathay-raht ignore the Critical Strike and Multiple Wounds special rules.
  • If the Cathay-raht suffer an unsaved Wound from a Blast, Large Blast or Template weapon, each unsaved wound is multiplied to two unsaved Wounds.
  • Marching is not allowed due to the extremely heavy Palanquin, and charge range is only 1D6", whether through cover or not.
  • The Palanquin grants +1 toughness to its carriers and to the Mane himself

Leader of the Khajiit: The Mane is the official leader (As official as one can be, with the Clan Mothers) of Elsweyr, and as such holds the absolute loyalty and faith of his peers. All units within 12" may re-roll morale and tests to march within 9" of the enemy. Each turn the Mane also provides 4 DRUGS tokens instead of the usual 1.

Warrior Guard: Purchasing the Mane allows his Warrior Guard to be purchased. These units use the profiles of Jaguar Men, save that they cost 17 pts per model and are Core. Warrior Guard have +1A and Ld over the listed profile. Should the Mane be slain in combat, all Warrior Guard units gain the Hatred and Frenzy special rules for the remainder of the game.


Keirgo of AnequinaEdit

In the northern deserts of Elsweyr, there exists little but ruins and sand. The harsh lands of Anequina are home to desert wanderers and nomads. Only but a city or two remains in the land of Anequina- trade hubs that allow the spread of culture and goods to the otherwise barren region. The natives of the northern reaches are warlike and barbarous, stubborn and proud. Time and time again they have expanded outward to take land from the fringes of Cyrodiil and Pellitine, each time undefeated but pushed back by diplomacy.

In the early third era, the Khajiit of Anequina were united under a single warlord for the first time in centuries. Originally an unknown son from a small clan, Keirgo soon took control of his people and led them in war against his neighbors. Slowly at first, but with tremendous speed, the man forced all to join him or have their clan subjugated and disbanded. Stories abound of sacking entire clans and leaving but one survivor to spread the news. It became common for warrior bands to simply lay their weapons at his feet, or cities to surrender upon hearing of his arrival. By terror and clever stratagem the Cathay soon held all of Anequina under his control. After engaging in war with Cyrodiil and Pellitine for decades, the Cathay grew weary of the war between Khajiit, and formed a revolutionary plan with his enemy Eshita. Together they agreed to politically marry, in order to mend the strife and unite both kingdoms.

Upon looking at the Khajiit one would think nothing of a loyal leader, or clever strategist. Appearance haggard and scarred, motions fraught with twitches and after-effects of combat drugs, Keirgo looks more like a rabid gladiator than any form of king. It would not be remiss to assume he prefers it this way- his enemies only see the hulking scar-ridden form of a large Cathay, riding upon the back of an even more hulking Senche. Those that know the man personally could speak of his ambition, sense of duty, and bond made with fellow clanmates.

190 pts. Hero. Skirmish, Cavalry, Khajiit. Single model.

Eshita of PellitineEdit

A polar opposite to the Northern Wastes, Pellitine is a lush and fertile land ripe with mercantilism. Lush with jungles and airy soil, the land's primary industry is that of sugarcane and saltrice plantations, grown along one of many powerful rivers. It is widely held that the region has been trading since before even the Atmorans had came to the shores of Tamriel in the late Merithic era. As a result of this quiet plantation life, and past of trading, the people of Pellitine are said to be wholly pleasant and civilized. This is equally true, especially when casting a blind eye toward the abundance of skooma and non-ritual moon sugar.

In the early third era, the normally peaceful lands of Pellitine were again shadowed by coming war. For years a band of warriors, led by Keirgo, had begun to amass and congregate into a massive warparty. In the upper nobility of Pellitine, this had long been ignored or looked down upon as an ignorable issue. Barbarians would kill barbarians like they always had, after all. Only one voice cast doubt to this outlook- that of the young Eshita. While she had a less distinguished past than other nobles, the young Ohmes-raht's voice rang true, and she had no trouble swaying others to prepare for war. As an ally and practitioner of Rawlith Khaj, the noble called upon the monasteries, and all able-bodied, to pick up arms and assemble for the inevitable. Soon her fears turned out to be correct- northern forces had mobilized and appeared before Corinthe, where they were soon met upon by the combined forces of Pellitine. Wild barbarians broke upon the ranks of calm Dos warriors, Khajiit killing Khajiit in a massive bloodbath. After this act the remaining nobles hastily agreed to name Eshita war-leader of Pellitine. She would go on to defend the southern cities from the north for decades. After growing weary of the bloodshed Eshita masterminded a plan. Meeting her enemy counterpart, Keirgo, they eventually agreed to marry politically and unite both kingdoms. For a short period of time the newly formed kingdom of Elsweyr knew only peace.

Fair-skinned and of Ohmes-raht build, Eshita is easily mistaken for a mer. A natural diplomat and leader, the female had a knack for politics and even fighting- from a young age Eshita had been given lessons in Rawlith Khaj. With discipline granted by training, and with lessons from Dos and parents, the young Khajiit was ingrained with an unparalleled sense of justice and honor. Soft-spoken and graceful, she was a beloved leader to the southern cities for nearly half a century. During wartime Eshita would often be joined by masters of martial arts, who looked to her as a pronouncedly benevolent figure, one worth giving their lives for.

180 pts for Eshita and Retinue. Hero. Skirmish, Infantry, Khajiit. 5 models (Eshita, 3 Dos, and a Cathay).

The bodyguards adopt the unit size and formation of the unit Eshita is attached to.

Katanas are 2-handed weapons that strike with +1 Strength, and have the Critical Strike special rule. If a Weapon Quality upgrade on a Katana would grant it additional Strength, it grants it additional Initiative instead. If a model must have an item type available (as a class of weapon as default wargear or an upgrade) in order to purchase item, upgrades or artifacts of that type, Katanas as unit options are available to models that can take either Katanas or Greatswords(assuming that the unit can take a particular Katana as an upgrade, that is).

Hand Crossbows are 1-handed shooting weapons. S3AP1, Fire and Charge 1, Range 6". If a Hand Crossbow is fired, it becomes Move and Fire 1 until the end of the controlling player's next turn, to represent the difficulty of quickly reloading it. They count as Hand Weapons(dual wieldable) in close combat.

Magic ItemsEdit

The Magic Items available to Warriors of Elsweyr are sorted into several categories. Classes of weapons, staves, light armor, heavy armor, and shields may only be taken by a model which is holding that type of item, and replaces the one he is holding. A model may take up to 3 consumables. Other items can be taken freely. Certain items may be further restricted to a particular model. Daedric Artifacts are included in the Artifacts supplement of the Core Rules, and are taken wherever specified for a model.

Items listed as upgrades are enchantments that may be taken as a bonus on a weapon that has not already been enchanted; their cost is in addition to any other costs for the item.
