Legend of the Elves
| Let me tell you
about the elves. The Elves never were part of the human
world. While they resembled us in many ways, they are
taller, leaner but most importantly they are immortal
or so it is claimed. It's believed that they were created
by Logos when finally turned his back on humanity which
he viewed as incorrigible.
It is also believed that the Elves whose image was modeled
after humankind lived in very much the same way as did
our ancestors. They lived simple lives hunting, gathering
and farming. The only difference was that they preferred
to live the dense forests of Carnac rather than the wide
open plains favored by their cousins.
While real, Elven kind hovers between myth and legend
within the tomes of human understanding. Only a few have
ever chanced on meeting an elf for their forest home is
well protected by Logos and none knows of its location.
Some even believe that the forest "El Lura Lastach" or
"the forest where the Elves sing" exists not on El Morad
but somewhere between reality and inexistence. In layman's
terms the forest resides on Carnac, yet it does not. There
are many theories regarding this phenomena but this concerns
the realm of priests and wizards not those who are more
interested in listening to a good story told.
These remarkable creatures are again divided into two
groups or so legend tells. The Iladhel and the Vladhel.
The Iladhel are their spell casters, our own wizards believe
them weak for they only delve in the power of nature.
But weak they are not, our magic users have obviously
never experienced a year without winter and yet the forests
of the Elves remain in perpetual spring.
The latter are akin to what we understand as rangers.
They're tracking skills are unmatched and darkness do
not impair their sight. They use long bows of the like
we have never seen. Their bows measure a height of a man
and their bolts can hit a target at 300 yards.
It is also believed that the Elves live in harmony singing
and dancing throughout the night not having a care in
Not much more is known about these eternal beings and
some of what we do know may even be tall tales spun for
the amusement of little children. But perhaps one day,
we will know more about those who are different, yet not
so different from the rest of us.
