Heroes of Ribhus
The Elves of Ribhus were one of the first races but their time of great power has passed and now their once vast empire has been reduced to a few pockets of woodland sanctuaries. Fearing for thier very existence and unable to put aside thier abject arrogance, the Elves are fighting a cold war with the humans of Ribhus. Much of thier culture and positive attributes are slowly being eroded by this war.
High Elves are arrogant, aloof and can often be downright difficult to deal with. They feel they are superior to every race, specifically humans and dwarves. High Elves are tolerant of Gnomes though they tend to patronize them and this sometimes causes some friction between individuals. Halflings are well liked and High Elves feel a need to protect them from the evils in the world though this is seldom required.
Sylvan Elves, or Wood Elves as they are often called, live in the deepest parts of remote forests. Their communities are often vast and complex high in the treetops. Sylvan Elves have chosen to distance themselves from all other races. The constant warfare, expansion and disregardby these races have made Sylvan Elves reclusive and suspicious. Sylvan elves are extraordinary woodsman and guides and terrible opponents in battle.
