The Onyx Throne
To outlanders, elves may seem content to live their long lives out in quiet contemplation and relaxation, but in fact many elves grow tired of long stays in one region. This truth, plus their innate attraction to the supernatural, sometimes draws them to distant lands. Elves abound in the Mierani Forest in Varisia, though many are disheartened by their inability to reclaim the ancient elven city of Celwynvian and may seek to escape the land that reminds them of what they lost. Those unfortunate Forlorn within Varisia may seek refuge from their own lives of sadness by joining a caravan on its way to distant lands and thus removing themselves from surroundings that have grown too intimate and allowing a glimmer of hope into their otherwise drab existences. With their affinity for nature and its sometimes mysterious inner workings, elves are highly sought by traders and other caravan leaders to keep an eye out for anything seemingly unnatural or out of place on the often overgrown and rugged trade routes north of Varisia.
