The Fair Elves of the Golden Glen

Five Customs

  • Academic and magical pursuits are more important than physical ones.
  • Manual labor is for lesser beings. The Fair have magic.
  • Leadership and wisdom are the most prized virtues.
  • The lives of all Fair Elves are precious. Killing or murder of a Fair Elf is a most heinous crime — even the state is forbidden from calling for the execution of a Fair Elf. Killing other sentients is… frowned upon.
  • A proper Fair One does not debase himself or herself by succumbing to the animal. Blatant flirtation, extremes of emotion, and indulging in excess are unworthy of a true Fair Elf.

Critical Events in the History of the Golden Glen

The Milkwood Campaigns in which then-High Marshal Imadriel led a legion of the High King’s finest into the heart of a corrupted woodland and ousted an alliance of Scourged Ones and Goblins led to Imadriel founding the city of Golden Glen and being recognized as its queen by the High King himself.

A shameful moment in their history occurred when Queen Imadriel had to make the difficult decision to turn away a tribe of lunar elves who had asked for sanctuary and protection from night elf raiders. The place in the Milkwood where the tribe was finally hunted down and slaughtered or enslaved is known as The Last Song of the Children of the Moon. It is haunted by tormented spirits to this day.

But other significant events includes establishment of The Blue Road, a waterway through the wooded lands that was widened to allow river traffic and trade with (approved) traders from the outside world. The Tragedy at White Tree led to Queen Imadriel’s ban on all fire arms within her realm.
