Kingdom of Riddel
The elves origins are so cloaked in the mists of time and the secrecy of all the elves that it is unlikely the truth shall ever be laid bare. All that the races know is that the elves, along with the dwarves, rose to prominence after the fall of the dragon-ruled and giant-dominated realms of the past. In this dim time millennia before any human empire rose under the sun, the elves carved empires of which songs are still sung today. Only legends of this time remain, and they talk fancifully of Creator Races that establish the races of the world. In at least one source, they are called the .Iquar.Tel.Quessir,. Though no one knows if this was a title of theirs or some piece of text mistranslated by human scholars or the original half-elven author. To this day, it is unknown what the connection is between these so-called Creators and the elves. During this era, many of the gods rose to their stations, dragons and giants were new races flexing their muscles across the new world, and most of the other races huddled in caves high in the mountains or nestled within the deep forests. The world, at this time, is dominated by dragons far more powerful than those on today. Isolated pockets of territory fall under giant control, and these grow toward the end of this age. This is the first epoch that mentions any of the smaller humanoids, since the first mentions of the elves trace back to this time. These legendary epics and songs sing of elves overthrowing and slaying dragon and giant overlords, and carving nations for themselves.
