Elves are not often seen in Tunwic but are more common in other parts of the world.
The Elves are humanoid creatures standing anywhere from 5’ 8” to 6’ 5”. Their ears are pointed and longer than most others, though the length varies from elf to elf. Elves also tend to have slimmer and longer faces than most other races on Adarl. Their skin tones can range from pale to dark with most resting at a fairly tanned middle and their hair colors are only slightly less diverse than a human’s.
TAMING THE WORLD
The elves were among the first humanoid creatures created on Adarl and were placed along the plains of Sabalaein. They quickly spread along the fertile twin rivers that run through the land and built mighty cities. It was many years and many conflicts before they united themselves under one rule. However, once united, the Elves proved to be a superpower able to assert itself even beyond the confines of Sabalaein. Exploring new lands and establishing multiple new cities, the Elves also looked across the mountain range known as Grumbar’s Spine and saw easy conquests amongst the Skloan lands. They built a mighty highway, known as the Emerald Way, through the largest of the mountain passes and defeated any and all threats to their rule, including mighty dragons.
An average Elf can expect to live anywhere between 200-250 years, at least twice as long as most other races on Adarl. Many Elves see this as a chance to live two lives, one adventurous younger life and a calmer, more refined life afterwards.
EXPLORATION AND ADVENTURE
Elves are fond of adventure, often exploring new things and places. It is not uncommon to see younger Elves taking up the life of an adventurer or even signing up in large numbers to colonize distant cities.
Elves have a love of the natural world, especially the trees of their homeland, cedars, palm trees and glarion trees especially. Most Elven homes will have at least a small garden, lovingly tended to. Elven emperors during the height of the Golden Empire were known to spend obscene amounts of money on gardens amongst their various palaces and the like.
