History During the first five centuries the Elves were constantly attacked by the Orcs. Because of this the Elves formed the first alliance with the Hlaflings and Gnmoes and laid waste to the Orcs practically eradicating them. A crusade that few are willing to accept as immoral. They also assisted the Humans in carving out a huge swatch of land from the Dwarves. Because of this they have fought almost constantly with the Dwarves and when the Half-Orcs emerged from the shadows the Elves were on their hit list. Despite their standoffish attitudes the Marenallians have formed secure alliances with the Humans and Sylphs when they assisted in stopping the Vishkanya’s attack on the Sylphs. Alliances that the elves were in deep need of when the greedy Dwarves of West Calum began another assault on Marenall.
The Elves of Terra Belli reside mostly in the deep forest of their homeland Marenall situated in the center of the country. The elves can also be extremely territorial viewing any outsider that wanders into their forests as an intruder. As such it is said that anybody who walks into the land of the elves never walks out. And while they don’t have any dealings with the other races even the Fairies they are entirely self-suficient.
Marenall is ruled over completely by the three wisest members of their species, the current rulers are Minao, Narphenee and Amidraphen.
The pride that goes along with having elvish blood is often a cause of conflict as they often look down on other races.Humans are typically tolerated by the elves but the Sylphs graceful nature and intuition have won them favor with the Marenallians. Besides the Dwarves the Marenallians are bitter enemies with the Half-Orcs. The elves are currently at war with the Dwarves of West Calum who want to regain land that they see as their own and the Half-Orcs who seek retribution for the attempted annihilation of their ancestors.
