Camor is the High Elven capital city made entirely of gold. Due to the high population of Elves in its limits, Camor is the most densely populated city in the world.  

Major Locations

Being such a major city, built out of gold for others to envy, Camor has many prominent locations. First, it has three walls that separate the major districts. In the outer wall Hal Tas, or "Weak Wall," is the commoner district. The middle wall Ix Tas, "Strong Wall," houses the noble district, and the inner wall Za Tas, "Royal Wall," is the royal district.

The Royal District

The Royal District is a place that few are given entry to. It is a location where all the royal family, their guards, servants, attendants, and close confidants are allowed to roam free without worry.  

Camor Keep

Camor Keep is the golden castle of the royal Nerifir family. It is a grand location with a throne room, along with barracks for guards and bedrooms for the royal family.   There is a red carpet that leads from the entrance to the throne. It is said that visitors to Camor Keep are not allowed to take a step off of this so as not to ruin the gold.   There is a grand ballroom here, decorated with rich tapestries of the royal family's history. They hold balls with the nobility of Camor, but sometimes they hold exclusive balls for all royals around the world. It is one of the few times Dwarves are allowed inside of the Keep. Some say it is done to gloat their wealth.   There is also a room featuring paintings of all Nerifir royals, beginning from Meiriris and even including the Half-Elven usurper Fleat Pteethtack, though Fleat's frame is not gold like the others.  

Servant's Quarters

A home off to the side of Camor Keep where all those who serve the royal family stay. The Nerifir royal family makes sure it stays in great condition, not wanting those who serve them to be unhappy.   It is said that the ruling monarch asks their children to clean the Servant's Quarters as a sign for them to remember that while the residents of it serve the royals, the royals serve the people.  

Statue of Meirirs Nerifir

There is a statue at the center of the Royal District of the first Queen, Meiriris Nerifir, made entirely of gold. It is one of the many golden statues of the Holy Rebellion that one can find around Camor.

The Noble District

The Noble District is where the rich Elves live. It is filled largely with mansions and fancy dwellings for the Elven Nobles, but also serves as a commercial district where high quality goods are sold and expensive restaurants are.   There are some few minor districts in this ring where commoners live, but they are only the ones who can provide the goods and services the nobles need. Otherwise, the nobles would not afford them the right of housing there.  

Gilded Camphor

The Gilded Camphor is a bar owned by the Valhana family, a commoner family of Elves. Imvis Valhana started it to spread the stories of his heroes to the people.
Meiriris Nerifir by Jarhed


Camor was initially created by the two Gods Asmodeus and Vecna using the slave labor of the newly created species of Elves and Orcs.   Asmodeus, in particular, insisted that it should be golden. He wished both to flaunt his wealth as well as to taunt the other Gods, like Tiamat and Sehanine.  

The Holy Rebellion

Meiriris Nerifir, an Elven woman, began preparations for rebellion. She gathered the Elves together, spreading her plans to them.   She gathered people like Tavzion Mossense and Galgeon Lusisce to help her. However, she needed the Orcs on her side.   Eventually, she gathered the support of Amukk God Breaker, who rallied the Orcs, and the joint force of Elves and Orcs defeated Asmodeus and Vecna, taking Camor for themselves and freeing the two species from their divine shackles.  

March of the Orcs

The March of the Orcs happened not long after, as Galgeon Lusisce led a group of nobles to drive the Orcs out of Camor.   Many of these nobles wished to just kill the Orcs outright, but Amukk protected them, standing up to the Elves and deciding on his own to lead his people away. He knew he could take them, but he wanted no more blood to be shed.   It was through the March of the Orcs that Camor came to be what it is known as now: the City of Elves. Prior to this it was a City of Gods, and then a City of Elves and Orcs. Only due to the actions of the nobility did the Elves take it over completely.
The Gilded Camphor Bar is where one can be taught the stories of the greatest heroes, like Meiriris Nerifir, Head Priestess Amara, Captain Commander Narkard Leran, Shatt Gunn, Nalrik Tilrak, and Hugg Gguh.

Statue of Galgeon Lusisce

The statue of Galgeon Lusisce is a statue of a controversial figure in the noble history of Camor. Galgeon Lusisce aided against the Gods in the Holy Rebellion, but when it was over, he was the one to drive the Orcs out of Camor.   Some nobles look up to Galgeon as a paragon of Elven virtues, while others consider him a horrible racist individual who slaughtered their sister race, committing the first genocide in history. Any insignia of him has been removed from the Commoner District.  

Dale Ward

Dale Lionrage, owner of McDales, bought out an area of the Noble District. It is unclear how or who sold it to him, and many still live here. However, there is a McDales here in the area known as the Dale Ward.   Alongside the McDales, there is grafitti of Dale's face all over some of the walls, which is said to be very disturbing in its portrayal of Dale as a God, an Angel, but also a Demon and a Devil.  

The Commoner District

The Commoner District is the largest district, home to the common, poorer High Elves, as well as some Wood Elves and Dark Elves. The perception of it to outsiders, created by the nobles who are more able to travel outside the city, is of a dirty place where hard labor is done.   Blacksmiths and other craftsmen are common to find here, even if the professions are more associated with Dwarves. Some say it is because of Dwarves that these professions are considered low-class for Elves.  

Statue of Amukk God Breaker

One of the statues from the Holy Rebellion, the Commoner District features a statue honoring the Orc Chief who united the Orcs to help the Elves. It is one of the few places in Camor one can find blatant honor towards non-Elves, and thus is considered a national treasure. Many nobles ask for it to be taken down, but they never succeed.   Often the commoners who lobby to keep the statue argue that if the Amukk statue should be taken down, then so should the Galgeon Lusisce statue. This gets the nobles to shut up.  

Scholar's Row

Scholar's Row is an area on the edge of the Commoner and Noble Districts where the best libraries in the city are. Many Nobles have tried to extend their wall to allow it, but the Nerifirs have insisted that it stay there to help allow the poorer folk of Camor to be just as educated as the wealthy.  

Goldenhome Market

Goldenhome Market is a market towards the southern edge of the city where Wood Elven traders often come with wares of their own as well as outside wares from those who have traded with them. One can find many wares that would otherwise be difficult to find here. At least, they once were.   Now, goods from Goldenhome Market are often either sold elsewhere after being purchased or are replicated and sold as Elven wares. The most notable of these are a series of toys on historical figures that were then turned into Elven propaganda tools, where the toys were Elven figures and allies like:
  • Kidcad, Chief of Childhood
  • Narkid, Captain Commander of Fun
  • Amara, Head Priestess of Love and Hugs
  • Etcher, President of Playtime
These are fashioned after people like Village Chief Kicad Bavul of Yirthum, a Draconian who worked with the Elves, or Captain Commander Narkard who led the Elven army as its great hero. They were ideas stolen from other nations that had similar toylines.  


Camor is run by the High Elven monarchy, which has been the Nerifir family since the Holy Rebellion.
Orithea Nerifir by Jarhed
  For a few generations, this was the women of the family, who ruled as Queens. There was the Founding Queen, Meiriris Nerifir, who passed it to her daughter, the Blessed Queen Holara Nerifir, and then her daughter the Promised Queen Orithea Nerifir.   Orithea then passed it to her daughter, the Queen of the Scarlet Mist, Macvara Nerifir. However, Macvara was assassinated and overthrown by her brother, Arazion Nerifir, who began a patriarchal line of Kings instead of Queens.   Ever since then, the Kings of the Nerifir lineage have ruled over Camor, and used it as a seat of power to rule their Kingdom.  

Elven Guard

The Corps D'armée are based in Camor as well, and therefore another important and influential figure in Camor politics is the Captain Commander and the other Captains of the Elven Army.   Generally the Captain Commander is in charge of all forces, so they deal less with the people, but as one goes down the chain of command to Captains of the Corps, Sous-Captains, and especially Aspirant Captains, they find more amicable soldiers.   The Captain of the Third Corps of the Elven Guard is one that often deals with the people, as it is something they are assigned as a special duty. The Captain of the First Corps of the Elven Guard, on the other hand, will also be well known by the people because they are the one that recruits them. The First Corps, after all, is the bulk of the army and where any citizen who registers is placed at the start. Therefore, if one ever sees a Captain around Camor, it will most likely be one from the First or perhaps Third Corps.  


The population of Camor is almost entirely Elves. In the Noble District, it is 100% High Elves, save for the scarce amounts of non-High Elven workers, normally Wood Elves or Dark Elves, that are employed around the district, though most non-High Elven workers in the Noble District live in the Commoner District.   The Commoner District has a makeup of mostly High Elves, estimated at about 70% High Elves in the district. 20% of the remaining population is Wood Elves, 5% are Dark Elves, and the remainder are some others who have managed to get into the city: Draconians, Humans, Secci Gnomes, Korvians, etc.   The Royal District, by virtue of being a smaller district, is said to be the most diverse due to the outside guests that stay there on invitation from the royal family. Foreign dignitaries, entertainers, mages, scholars, and other outsiders staying cause the Royal District to seem more varied in who lives there than it truly is.
