I have just bought the new Eldar Codex!
I have just read the bit about Exodites, what are they in relation to rules and the "bigger fluff" in 40k?
Also, how many Craftworlds are there?
Exodites are like feral eldar, they live the old life, on a planet rather than on a craftworld.
I don't know how many craftworld are about, I guess 10 or so? maybe more..
I'm sure wiki may have more info.

Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
Exodites live on worlds that either escaped the Fall altogether or came to fruition after the Fall. They left some time before the Fall itself, I believe, although don't quote me on that.
They live fairly simple lives, adapting to the Maiden Worlds on which they settled (Maiden Worlds being those that were terraformed by the pre-Fall Eldar but were never settled until the danger became apparent or were just never settled at all). They don't use as much tech as Craftworld Eldar, and don't use spirit stones. Instead they use the "World Spirit", which as said is a collection of ritual stones and the like which draws the souls of dead Eldar to itself somehow. I can't remember exactly, I don't have my 2nd ed codex with me.
They still maintain contact with their Craftworlds, with some having Webway gates on their worlds. Biel-Tan in particular maintains close links with exodites, protecting them as they see them as the future of the Eldar empire. They also tend to live on worlds where dragons flourish as a species, and ride them into battle. The last time Exodite Dragon Riders appeared in the rules was 2nd edition.
Brilliant! Cheers guys!
Can anyone name all of the Craftworlds? And tell me what i could do to create my own Craftworld?
The Craftworlds in the official fluff so far are:
Altansar (destroyed in the events of the Eye of Terror campaign, I believe)
Dawn of War adds:
And from multiple web-based sources that don't explicitly say they're player-created and so maybe official somewhere:
If you want to create your own, just distort the name of a Celtic festival. It appears that Samhain, Beltaen, Umbolc and Lluggsdannah (sp?) are already taken. As to the style however, you'll have to ask someone else.
I understand that an Eldar will follow the path of a Dark Reaper, then next week follow the path of the Banshee. Do they ever stick with one Aspect? I know that they can get lost on the path, thus becoming a permanent Exarch of that Aspect, but wont they ever just stick with one Aspect? What do they do after they have travelled all paths? Do they then choose which one they liked best?
Sorry but the Codex doesnt specifically say! And its annoying because i want to know all about the stuff they dont explain!
It's hardly "Banshee one week, reaper the next". Eldar stay on one particular Path (any path, not just that of the Warrior) in a particular way until they feel they have mastered it and/or cannot go any further along it. This can take years, decades or centuries depending on the Eldar in question. They will then move onto another Path. They will not stay in a Path they feel they cannot walk further down and are not locked into.
And, given the current warlike state of the galaxy, it's incredibly unlikely that an Eldar will ever complete all the Paths available to him or her.
Secondly, those 3 craftworld at the bottom ARE official in GW fluff, they are in the current eldar codex as example craftworlds and they have their own colour schemes and paragraphs of fluff.
In addition, the craftworld Il-kaithe is also in the Eldar codex now, not just dawn of war. Sorry for picking, it's an obsessive compulsion. ^_^.
About the craftworlds, they never say exactly or even roughly how many there are but I'd guess around 50-100... remembering not all of them are big, main ones like the named ones.

Sorry about the lack of detail on Il-Kaithe and Altansar, I've not got the most up to date information on this stuff.
Oh, and just a thought; wouldn't Zandros also be a Craftworld? There's a one-sentence reference to an obscure warrior aspect (the Slicing Orbs of Zandros) that is confined to one shrine on one craftworld. While it may also be the name of the aspect founder, it may also be the name of the craftworld.
