The Salderine Empire
The Erinewilds is an ancient elven realm of primordial trees and glistening spires. The Salderine Empire was formed when the human Prince Cador of Salder and the elven Princess Yintressia were wed in a marriage of convenience after the Battle of Somraw. The resultant alliance grew into what would become the most powerful nation in the known world. Most Imperial elves live in the Erinewild’s age old cities or in small tree top villages. Like most races, the elves have their own pantheon of gods, known collectively as the Seldarine. The proud elves were not keen to be forced to worship the Imperial, and continued to follow the Seldarine in secret. However, brutal Inquisitions tried to stamp out the ‘false elven gods’. Some of the atrocities were so heinous that the most Imperial citizens were appalled, leading to a general climate of religious tolerance and eventually an official degree of total religious freedom. The Imperial Order of Elven Rangers routinely patrol their lands, slaying any evil humanoid that try to encroach. However, the Erinewilds can still be a dangerous place, as many beasts roam the forests. The Erinewilds border Salderon, The Hinterlands, and Veredale.
