The Shattered Lands
Once controlled large portions of the world, and had a large population. They grew haughty and believed themselves better than the Gods and paid the price for their hubrus. The Gods set a Plague upon the Elves, decimating their numbers and forever changing them. Some of those that remained found solace in the depths of the Woods, becoming Wood Elves and losing all arcane powers, but becoming great Druids. Those that call themselves the High Elves, seeing themselves as above the rest of their race, and in fact any race, deny their own faults and blame the Gods for what happened to them, forgoing all Devine powers, they are Arcane users and artificers. Wood elves are rarely found outside of their territory. High Elves are the most likely to venture past their high walls, usually seeking great Magiks.
