After the Awakening nothing was the same with the Elves and over time they started to break apart and form their own groups. The Wild Elves or by some the Wood Elves took that to a whole new level. The renounced the ways the Elves lied by for thousands of years, believing that this was what they deserved by forsaking the old ways as they were driven from their homeland and had been slaughtering each other for power that was magic. Thousands were to have said to have just left their homes with entire settlements being abandoned over night. Many of them began to live in the forest and began praying with their old gods and spirits that lived across the land. They stay cleared from the High Elves that started to settle across the land across the new Kingdom of Vilneria. Both sides minded their own business for a time, but eventually the kingdom wanted to convert to the House of Sun and Moon or leave. The chiefs of the tribes gathered together to see if they should do and gether their shamns to see it their gods and the spirits of what would be the right choice. The Shamans told them that they saw many visions of they saw of things of what to come if they chose to stay. They spoke of death from their distant kin and of a war with the Dwarves that lived in the mountains. But the greatest of them all would a dark force that would come from the great seas and when it came fire and death would follow it their wake. None of them would survive if they stayed in these lands and spoke of lands of Asult were it had remained untouched by all. Only there would their people survive the storms to come.   It was decided, a great migration began as the all of the Wild Elves from across the land sought out to find their promise land. It was there at the cliffs of Demur that they were told that their salvation would arrive. They prayed for days to have there salvation to allow them to cross the sea as they had no ships to do so. Then after many long days and nights an unexpected event transpired that would carry them to their new home. A massive glacier came from the deepest seas and parked itself right on the cliff and they quickly bordered it. Once on the water took them to the land of Asult and they rejoiced at its beauty and abundance that it had to nurture. They had a place to call their own and lived happily.   For many generations, the Wild Elves lived in peace and harmony in their lands without the notion of any threats that would befall them. They had heard of the War of Stone and Wood as the shamans had foreseen, but it did not reach them and they carried on with their lives. But after several decades the second part of their visions came pass as well. As the Orcs had landed in the southern plains and brought fire and destruction to all. With many of them landing in Asult as well and war had come to them and they were unprepared. Their lands and homes were torched as the Orc invaders took advantage of them. But oh did their anger grow as they pillaged their home and burned their lands. As they fought back they realized that war was a much like a hunt and they knew these lands better then their foreign foes. Their counter attack as swift as it was merciless as none of the Orcs were spared and their head were mounted upon the cliff that they came upon to deter anymore outsiders from coming.   From that day forth no one was allowed to come to their lands
