Elven Race

The Elves have always been a part of Sosaria, tied inexplicably to the health of the world itself. The ancient tales and the bards that sing them are definite about that fact. Elven beauty is renowned, elven valor unsurpassed, and elven artistry dazzling in its brilliance. The songs tell us, so it must be true.

There are skeptics, of course. There always are those who do not believe and cannot afford to acknowledge mysteries in their lives.

But the stories are true. The Elves do exist and serve as the caretakers of Sosaria, linked directly to the world itself, their health tied directly to that of the land. Perhaps not quite as beautiful, valorous and brilliant as legend tells us, but real nonetheless.

This is the second Playable Race in the game, introduced with Mondain’s Legacy.
