  1. Hello! Thats a great inventory on the Iyanden's temples and characters! Could you give me the source where did you get it? Or is it from your own invention? Is there the same information for Ulthwé? :D thank you fellow Aeldari friend!

    1. A lot came from the codex or novels I have read over the years (like the path series and the Ynnari books). I feel like a lot of temples are transferable between Craftworlds. But I am not 100% sure on that fact. Thanks for stopping by do you have a blog?


I hope you enjoyed the post? I would love to hear your thoughts and start a conversation on the topic. If you have time please do hit follow.

Thank you for stopping by.
