And remember, We have never gotten a good handle on how many Exodites truly exist, the Craftworld and Commoraugh Eldar may not even know.

This is the same universe where the merciless 4 great gods of chaos have allowed one man 13 failures. Lazy recruitment.

Fairly certain the Harlies can have a few bites at the apple of hope

I like the hope they are giving the eldar, before hand it was to certain and nothing is certain in the 40k galaxy.

One man has had 12 successes, its just a shame the 40K background is written using the 'Secret Orders' rules.

What fluff am I missing? Where is it implied that there's some larger plan that the Harlequins are part of?

Wealth is created when we use new knowledge to create new things or improve efficiencies.
This technology, along with people pondering applications using type three levers is literally a new mechanical revolution in waiting. There are going to be many patents, from people who're curious and can tinker.

Novel Valedor, it was a book released with the apoc expansion that featured DE and Eldar. There's a section in the book where the Harlequins perform the dance without end but instead of it going the normal way the last act has a new ending, (Ironic for a dance without end huh?)

Basically it implies that the laughing god is distracting slaanesh and is able to save eldar souls from her, meaning that there's a slim chance that slaanesh could lose her influence over the eldar giving them the chance to come back.

The ending of the book also implies that there's is a possible future the eldar are on now.

40K is about the death of allot of civilizations, but as history proves things do rise from the ashes, so exactly what the chance entails is best guess.

There is also new fluff emerging that the Laughing God has a plan that could destroy Slaanesh. There's a book in the Black Library may hold the key to this.
