Here’s another post on Durth. This time the Elves. While Durth isn’t your standard fantasy world, I wanted to keep the standard races but make them a little different and since they’re Elves they should feel a little alien (without changing them mechanically). That way GM’s can easily use whatever rules they want.
The Elves of Durth make their home on the 13th Moon where they use their arcane talents to create ornate castles from the living stone found there. Elves who are found on the surface of Durth are usually exiles, fugitives, or explorers. Most Elves never set foot on the surface of Durth voluntarily.
It is easy to tell the difference between Elves who willingly travel to the surface of Durth and those who are exiled. Exiles have all their fingers. The elves believe that to maintain a connection to their natural arcane abilities, they must have a physical connection to their home. Since their home isn’t even on this planet technically, they have to leave part of themselves there. Most travelers and explorers will sever the little finger of their left hand before they travel to the surface and leave the finger in a specially prepared shrine in the Elven city. Exiles have been know to sever their own fingers in an attempt not to look like an exile.
And for those of you who passed the reading comprehension part this test, yes, Durth has 13 moons. But more about them later.
