I have no idea who malal is, that's why I assumed he/she is a loser.
The Golta have fought a few small wars with other races, but nothing on a very large scale.
The Golta penisular is very well defended with forts and garrisons and patrolling rangers and since the Golta are so insular, they don't really provoke invasion from others very much.
The Golta generally see themselves as under a lot more threat they actually are, especially since they tend to think of all other races as one big group that plots against them (using tolpish as a collective term adds to this sense of everyone else against us.)
Malal is the forgotten (by players) god that represent's chaos' tendency to destroy itself. He fights Chaos because it is his nature to want to destroy them all, and the other Chaos gods really hate him... but so does everyone else, because he is still a chaos deity.
But were those 'small wars' acts of aggression on the Golta's part or the other party?
You would think that their technology would be reason enough to invade.
So they are like eldar to an extent, but think the plotting is against them instead of being the plotters. Interesting.
