The Rage Curse
Elves are a mystery. About three hundred years ago, when men were scouting forests in the southern Wildlands, they came across a group of elves hunting. This led to many quick but decisive conflicts wherein humans were handily defeated by the more advanced and civilized elves. After some diplomacy, elves soon took on the role of tutor, kindly showing humanity how to better work within this now wild world. They were instrumental in The Western Sea Accord which saw the dwarves freed.
Elves have integrated themselves into society in some ways, but not fully. Most elves are detached and aloof, and spend extended periods of years or decades out of the realms and cities of humanity. This is more true lately, and populations of elven communities within the kingdom’s borders have begun to dwindle in the past few years.
