The Elven Kingdom of Elarin
Elarin is the forest continent of New Arcadia, north of Lothros and east of Kind dur Tera. The nation is shrouded by mystery due to the thick Forest of Ela that extends over most of the island. To those not of elven lineage, the forest is hideously unsafe, being near impossible to navigate outside the cleared paths, and the ferocious monsters and fey spirits that roam the forest. The only known city to outsiders is the Elven capital of Ela Shadarin, the center for commerce, study, and politics in the nation.
The nation is ruled by the Council of Ela, made up of elves elected by their clans. Eladrin, while occupying the forest do not partake in politics as a unified group, preferring to live among the wild. Half-Elves, while allowed to possess elven knowledge of the nation, are not permitted by the clans to be representatives in the council.
