    In the mists of time, they rebelled against the en-igmatic Saurians to become guardians of muchof the world, while the ancestors of the Dwarvesheld the rest. Once they were a single race, yettheir united rule could not endure. Even thesemost graceful of beings are not immune to in-fighting or betrayal. The details are veiled in alle-gory and myth, but it is clear a great schism rent the Elven peoples asunder, resulting in the three powers we see today.

    Some argue they represent the oldest and truest of the Elven civilisations, closest to the primordial Fae.
    Their fate is entwinedwith the forests they callhome, and the spiritsdwelling within, bothnurtured by and alliedto the Elves beneaththe canopy. Thosesame spirits aremurderous whenroused, and Sylvan archery is feared across the earth.
    Since the withdrawal of the Highborn across theseas, they are what remains of the Elves in Vetia, occupying the forests of our great continent.Their disregard for human borders often causesstrife with their neighbours; many a woodsmanhas met a grim fate and every missing child is "lost to the fairies".
