isolational eldar
« on: October 17, 2004, 10:10:18 AM »
I've finally got round to make up fluff for my eldar craftworld, but I'm not sure if some of the things are entirly possible or not. Here goes anyway.

I want the craftworld to be bustling with life ( a kind of opposite to Iyaden) so to do this, I thought that they maybe could have been isolated in a warp storm, but I wanted to know if that was possible for Eldar due to their space faring ways.

Also I really wanted them to live on a planet that sends out craftworlds as aid to other eldar. Is this a little bit too far-fetched?
Thanks to Rasmus, for all his help

Err, as far I know Eldar are not affected by warp storms since they travel via the webway.

And Eldar living on planets isn't that far fetched, my Craftworlders have settled five planets.

But sending off Craftworlds?

It ain't a kit-car you get in the mail and just assemble.

Well 'modern' Eldar craftworlds, like the big 5, are formed from many dozens (hundreds?) of craftworlds that joined together over time.
Perhaps this planet just has a strong fleet of 'original' craftworlds, which are more like space faring caravans than continents.

Sounds like a good idea. The location of the planet/solar system should be very heavily guarded though, as Eldar do that very well. Especially with something as static as a planet, if orks or chaos or the Imperium found its location, it'd be unable to just slip into the webway to flee.

I'm still developing my craftworld fluff, I'm thinking more of a coalition of smaller craftworlds+colony planets than a huge space faring nation.

Eldar don't really need to physically send out ships for aid though, most of the time they use the webway. In the Fall of Iyandin fluff, Maugan Ra brought an army of Reapers via the webway.

Perhaps your Eldar's planet/solar system is situated in an old 'crossways' of the webway, allowing large scale vessels to quickly reach other craftworlds in times of aid.

Ah yes, my Craftworlds home planet is still blocked off because of the collapsed webway. There's...no hope of reaching it, no hope at all!!

*Breaks down and cries*

*Sniff* Well, if you want your craftworld to have been blockaded (sp?) then you could say that the section of webway they were connected to was unstable at that time and they didn't want to attempt anything that could possibly harm it until it finally stabilised itself once more.

Or summat.

Well I'm not going to quote anything, so...I'll have to hunt down my old sig again.

How bothersome.
