The Shattered Lands
An Ancient Elven stronghold, abondoned by the elves when mankind began to encroach too close. The Elves had warded the city, strong enough they believed to protect it till the time Mankind left and they could reclaim it. However a group of heroes needed a relic the city contained. Utilizing all their resources, they breached the mighty wards and sacked the city. Leaving the gates open for others to follow and lay claim.
The Elves came forth from the woods to reclaim their city, but were sopped by the same adventurers, sent packing back into the woods. Over the years the city has been repopulated by Mankind and other humanoids. While the Elven nation has attempted diplomacy and negotiations to reclaim their lost city, their attempts have so far failed them.
