location Most commonly found in Perrillion but are known to travel all over the continent.
The oldest and proudest race of Caelora*. They arrived millenia ago when, according to their lore, the gods pulled back the veil that separated the Feywilds from the mortal realm to allow the elves to tame and cultivate the world. This blessing came at a cost, as the elves exchanged their dominance over Caelora and its magic for their immortality. Elves are tall, graceful, and agile. Their delicate builds should never be mistaken for weakness.
Elves age much slower than any other race with a broad lifespan of 300-450 years. They reach maturity at 100.
*Though the dwarves claim the same, they make less of a fuss about it.
info In compairison to elves, humans are a much younger civilization, dating back only 3,000 years. Their origin is shrouded in mystery, as even the elves aren't entirely sure where they came from. All they know is that they weren't there one day and the next they were. Human lore claims they fell from the sky, sent to Caelora by the goddess Helst. Elves and humans originally enjoyed a propserous, peaceful relationship. However as their numbers surpassed the elves', who reproduced at a much less rapid rate, tensions over borders and resources began to rise. Since their first skirmish the kingdoms of men and elves have warred perpetually throughout history, with the current era of peace being the longest stretch in modern memory.
Humans are hearty but fragile compared to the other races of Caelora. Their lifespans are also shorter, averaging 80-120 years. They reach maturity at 20.
info Goliaths are a hearty race, taller than any other on Caelora, built with strong, solid limbs, broad shoulders, and unrivaled strength. The average height of a Goliath is 213cm (7'). Myths of their origins indicate they are likely distantly related to the elves: The first Goliath is said to have been born when an elf maiden laid beneath the tree of a Teru-- the wild, mischevious gods of the forest -- and the spirit fell in love with her. The two were wed and from the tree emerged the first Goliath.
Goliaths are another long-lived race, with an average lifespan of 250 years. They reach maturity at 80.
