The Chronicles of Corcia
The Kingdom of the Elves
Before the war the elves were a peaceful race. They dedicated themselves to the preservation of nature and respecting mother Gaia. When the war broke out the elves were ill prepared. They mustered up what fighting force they could but their king was no warrior.They lost countless battle until a young elf soldier took command of one of the units during a great battle and managed to win the fight. The elves had never won before and the people were filled with a new hope. The king Promoted this young elf soldier, and he quickly lead the elves to victory after victory. As this young elf solider began to win more battle for the elves, he gained support from the elven people. The king was worried he might lose his standing to this young elf warrior, and began to join the soldiers on the battlefield himself. During one of the most important battles between the elves and the dwarfs the elven king was slain, and the elves were forced to retreat. Chaos ensued as the elves no longer had a leader, and they believed that this was the end for them in the war. The young elf soldier stepped up and took control of the army, stating that even though their was no king he would still fight for his people. It was during this time that the young elf soldier met the Grand Cleric, who was able to convince the elf to put a stop to the war, even though the elves had a deep grudge against the dwarfs for killing their king. By cooperating with the Grand Cleric the young elf soldier was able to work with the humans and the dwarfs to put a stop to the fighting, an act which allowed the young elf soldier to become the new elf king. The new Elf King runs a militant monarchy, which has a disdain for using the machines. The Elf king feels that these machines are born from evil, and are a blight upon nature. With the war over the elves have began a campaign to get rid of all machinery, and they have the military might to back it up.
