Elven Purge

A dark tale of times of terror and war, it tells the story of how the humans tried to wipe out the elves, tried to 'purge' them from Tellus.


After a war of many years and great loss of life, the human armies returned home from a long journey, and settled in to enjoy their victory over the troublesome Kobolds. Reproducing as humans do, they began to expand into the arboreal forests around their ancestral home in the east of the East. It encroached upon an elvish sanctum, and the whole jesus works exploded into a bitterly fought war.

Historical Basis

There are subsects of the long-lived elves that truly believe this story, and approach interactions with humans as life threatening, like having to co-exist with a wild animal.
