Aeldari Encyclopedia

As is well known by now I am a big fan of all things Elven, especially those of the Games Workshop Aeldari arc. As part of my gaming and collecting, I enjoy coming up with backstories for my characters/units/vehicles. The best way I've found to go about this is to lift ideas from literature mostly Black Library, HP Lovecraft and Tolkien. With so much info I decided to compile as much info as possible from my personal collection. In no way is it complete, official, purely GW or even nicely laid out and neither is it my goal to form a fully working dictionary (so please don't ask for English to Eldar or what the Eldar word for potato is other blogs can tell you this). When I remember to write down the sources I will add it to the list below.

Please remember this is purely for my own benefit and enjoyment. It may even include words of my own making, words from AOS or Lord of the Rings or D&D or any other source I feel dits. If it is elven enough for me it can make the list. Disagree with something written do let me know in the comments and let's chat. Feel free to use it and suggest words to add by dropping me a comment below. Thanks, and enjoy it.



"We have made battle in this place before. We have fought and won. Fought because we knew that we must. We won, and brought upon ourselves glory that will not fade as long as Ulthwé thrives. Now we are called to battle again. Must we perform a duty which we have already accomplished? If we fight and fail, are our former victories tarnished?" - Farseer Caerys of Ulthwé

"We are like echoes in a cave, or waves upon the water: performing our part every time we are called. We who have glimpsed into the flow of time see that it is exactly such vast confluence, paths crossed and re-crossed. All are swept along. And we Eldar, masters of hindsight, insight, and foresight are bound that much more tightly to our duty than the ignorant, the belligerent, the blind.
When one truly understands fate as it is, myriad branching paths, then one can truly see that duty is cleaving to a particular fate, and glory is the accomplishment of duty’s ends. When we are true to the nature of the Eldar, we cannot fail." - Farseer Caerys of Ulthwé

"Since the time of The Fall, our race has been haunted by what we, in our reckless pursuit of hedonistic indulgence, gave birth to. Though our dreams once overturned worlds and quenched suns, we are now but fitful shadows clinging to the edge of existence. All the stars in the sky cannot blot out the hateful glare of the Red Moon's Eye. The birthing place of The Great Enemy pulses with all the malice of a daemon that is dreaming, casting its shadow over all we have ever done and all we ever shall. Every twisted strand of Fate and casting of the Runes leads me to this time, to this place, and it is clear that the final battle awaits me at the ancient Crone Worlds. A conflict the likes of which has not been seen since the Mon-keigh warred amongst themselves, and their corpse of a seer fell to his traitorous son, is coming and all my steps lead towards it, no matter that I walk other paths. I see the stars stained red with the blood of the Mon-Keigh and, though their wars do not concern me and I would gladly let them destroy one another, I know that to avoid this fight is to condemn my race to inevitable doom. And though all I see is darkness, I know that I will not flinch from my destiny" - Eldrad Ulthran

May the Blessings of Asuryan protect the children of Asuryan from abomination:
Shea nudh Asuryanish ereintha Asuryanat

If the truth were hidden, perhaps a lie would be told.
Da gceilfi an fhirinne, b'flieidir go neosfai breag.

It was so dark that we thought night had come.

Black Library- The Black Library is spoken of by Eldar as a dark Craftworld existing within the Webway, far beyond the reach of the Imperium. Within are collected tomes and writings describing the Eldar's studies of the warp. These writings describe all aspects of Chaos: its perils, promises and horrors. The Library is enclosed within a nearly impenetrable psychic barrier, and is watched and maintained by its Guardian-scribes, who collate and transcribe the knowledge of the Library, a task they have carried out since the Fall. It contains not just Eldar knowledge of Chaos; any knowledge of Chaos is taken and kept within the Library, such as a copy of the Book of Magnus. It is as much a source of knowledge for those who fight Chaos as it is a vault to keep dangerous knowledge hidden and protected from those who would misuse it.

"I hear the song of the celestial heavens, and the music is cacophonous. It is strange but I find comfort in its dissonance. Righting the discord of the universal opus is what’s given my people purpose when, by all rights we as a race should have collapsed in upon ourselves. It is in such moments when species find their greatness or settle back into the muck that spawned them... For myself I have purpose if only to correct one particular stray note in a symphony ran amok. Win or lose, this battle is already my victory, my triumph. It is now fate which decides whether I am there to celebrate that fact or not" - Farseer Taldeer, Craftworld Ulthwé
