The topic basically, but I mean, is there anything besides war or territory that everyone wants? Some mineral, gem, or some kind of energy source that races are looking for?
Well, everyone wants to know the secret of Necron technology so they know what to fight it with
Aside from that however, the Imperium wants technology and STCs, the Eldar want more Eldar, the Dark Eldar want pain, Chaos want nothing other than to desecrate the entire galaxy, Tau want more of everything, Tyranids want to expand, Orks want to fight and Necrons don't want anything because they are nothing but automatons, pawns in the great plan of the C'Tan. But there isn't really any precious materials or anything to my knowledge.
promethium, adamantium, relics, hulks, large amounts of resources, "lebensraum" (and all the connotations that go with), trade routes, planets, large populations, strategic planets...
a lot of stuff
Terminator armor going critical would be like Three Mile Island only very, VERY angry, and carrying a hammer.
LO rules in a nutshell: Don't post unit costs, be polite, rep posts containing of win.
Ya, that is a lot of stuff, and more stuff if you count the individual wants of the races...dang, ok.
I suppose the Imperium is the only race that really cares about 'holy relics' and all the materials you mentioned, all other races follow their own agendas - the Eldar, for example, have no need for such mortal trappings...
Habitable planets are what everybody has the most interest in. They are the easiest places to live without having to terraform the place or create a sealed enviroment. These places also give the chance to spread an multiply. It is almost always these planets that races fight over. Not everybody absolutely requires them to survive, Necrons exist on dead worlds usually and Tyranids can live anywhere. However both of these types have a huge interestin these planets for conquest or food.
