Rise and Fall of Arela
The long-lived race of Elves has its highest population concentration on the subcontinent Adweld, which the Elven nation claims in its entirety. Elves did not venture the seas to the east, and therefore never came upon the continent of Arela until long after its discovery by Man. Even after its discovery, for near 200 years the Elven nation and the majority of the Elven population expressed no interest in exploring or visiting the Arelan continent. The only current Elven inhabitants of Arela are almost exclusively soldiers or descendants of soldiers from the failed Elven invasion of Arela.
