A Plane Scarred
To the east of the lowlands of Shandaria lies a great, untouched forest. Within this forest live many people, most significantly of which is the alliance of elven city-states. Called the “Eldrathian Alliance,” this loose gathering of peoples was originally founded out desire for mutual defense. Over time however, the Eldrathians grew pleased with what they could accomplish united, and they formed a great city-state near the center of the forest. The Eldrathians were very committed in their dedication to the primal spirits of the forest, a commitment that eventually brought the local Shifter populations under their sway as well. While the Elrathians never committed to an invasion of a foreign power, their forests were oft-fought over resources for both the Averians and Karzarkiks, and both nations quickly learned that their rangers and their primal warriors were to be feared and respected, especially when defending their home turf. Many Eldrathians worship Meloria and Sehanine, and the Elves especially worship Corellon as well.
Today the Eldrathians concern themselves with keeping Alrane in balance with nature and managing the island’s natural resources. They also call to both Melora and the primal spirits to calm the seas when expeditions set sail.
