Sky Riders of Fayador
The Elves of Fayador hail from one of two distant, ancestral lands far to the East. Aryvandaar, land of the High Elves and Grey Elves, was the larger of the two. Ilefarn was the smaller, home of the Wood Elves and Fire Elves. Both were overrun by legions of Orcs and black dragons, all under the banner of Gruumsh. The Elves fought valiantly, but eventually had retreat westward – following rumors that the fabled Misty Island, the first Elf land in existence, resided there.
When the Elves arrived in Fayador they found it sparsely inhabited by Humans and Dwarves, with the occasional appearance of a Halfling or Gnome. They established two separate kingdoms, which have grown and prospered since. To date Elves are the most populous race in Fayador, and are involved in every aspect of society from the farmers to the monarchs.
