History

When the elven races diverged, the Erlkings travelled north to claim the central taiga and northern marshlands of Ecíos. Blessed with royalty they called themselves Elf Kings. Unlike the other elves, their blessing was not as clear, beyond drastic physical changes they're chnages were unclear for many generations. They now know that they are kings and queens of their own lives, and so the land they settled they called Land of the Free Monarchs. The Erlkings built grand cities yet they never created kingdoms, each individual is responsible for themselves, there is no rule, and justice and crime is war. Despite their chosen way of life, there is very little anarchy within their land, an achievement only they could accomplish.
