Crossroads in Cain
Elafal – High Elves
This haunted wood, formerly a nation of High Elves, was defeated by the Drow to the south. There are still High Elves here, but they wander the wood in mourning. The Drow sacked the High Elf capital of Vellardin — a once beautiful city of art and magic — and killed the King and Queen of the White Iris Court. The wood is now populated by giant spiders, hill giants, ettercap and other wild beasts.
Oranas, The Lord of Autumn, is the last surviving member of the White Iris Court. He rules in mourning as his wife and children were cruelly slaughtered by the Drow. He is a paladin of the High Elf god Polaris, but does not have the will to fight for what is right, worried that more of his kind will die. Therefore his noble retinue is known as the Court of Fallen Leaves. Most of the elves follow the lead of their lord. However, there are rumors of other factions who seek revenge against the Drow.
