The High Elves
Noble and intelligent, if even a little haughty, the High Elves of Faydwer have reason to be proud of their race. Brothers to the Wood Elves of the Faydark, they were created long ago by Tunare and ruled an ancient elven empire known as Tunaria - now Antonica. The empire was destroyed by Solusek Ro long ago, forcing the remaining elven refugees to flee across the Ocean of Tears, named for the exodus, to form their new city of Felwithe. They find themselves constantly at war with a neighbouring clan of Orcs in Crushbone who hold a tenuous alliance with the Dark Elves of Neriak.
The High Elves of Tunare are both wise and intelligent, and as such many serve their city as Clerics, Enchanters, Magicians and Wizards. The forests of Faydwer can be a dangerous place however; orcs abound, and so a few brave High Elves may choose to become Paladins in defence of their race. Whilst not particularly strong, their wisdom and charisma tend to see the High Elven knight through the day.
The High Elves have no particular innate racial abilities aside from infravision, allowing them improved vision during the night.
