Legend of the land:
In the old days , the land was in throes of conflict , as Dwarves, Elvon, and men sought to carve a place amidst Goblins, trolls and dragons.
King of the Elvon , Utheri, climbed the Pyron mountains and there built the city of Evelon. With time, he set out to pacify the land. Driving the
evils of the world into hiding, he at last , after many years, found a measure of peace, to raise a family.
To him and his wife were born twin children, Artron, a son , and Morgania a daughter. Naming Regents of the North and South, he clearly noted the
lands they would rule from an early age. At his passing at a ripe old age, his children took up the task of expanding the lands under their
protection as wardens of civilization.
Morgiania’s followers met humans on the southern plains and quickly came to admire and friend them, oft times intermarrying freely. The Elvon of
the North kept more to themselves, and while not illegal, by any means, mixed marriages here are frowned upon. The tanned skin of the warmer climes
sets the Southerners apart at a glance. Unfortunately, there were issues with the migrations outward from the capital city.
A group of the Elvion people, having no desire to scale mountains, had broke off from Utheri, and gone into hiding. Rumored to have become creatures
of the night, they became known as the Drow. Tales of vampirism follow them, though no proof has ever been found. They are said to live in the buffer
zone between the Dwarven hills to the east, and the Elvon settlements to the west.
Dragons, the size of Mastiffs roam the hills of the Elvon home city. Contrary to legend, not as hostile as we are led to believe, and certainly not
so ferocious to fight, though the fiery breath they do have is fearsome when they are angered…
Hill trolls are a common night time threat, as are rogues of all the races. Gnomes, not so small as we are led to believe, are remarkable for one
trait: they consider Elvon and Humans a food, of great desirability. Goblins are, of course, a threat to all, as are the great bands of barbarians
across the southern seas who practice cannibalism and slavery with abandon.
