Heroes of New Canton
Thornreld is an elven kingdom east of New Canton, situated within the Amber Vale and Silver Spine Mountains. The elves are extremely devout to their religion and are ruled by a theocratic form of government. They employ and sell slaves and are known to have dealings with Archon. Twelve years ago the elves began a conflict with clans of shifters from the south, including the Crescent Spires Clan. The shifters had settled in southeastern parts of the Silver Spine range. Even though the shifters weren’t occupying elven territory, the elves expected the clans to pay taxes and observe elven sacrificial rites to their deity. Hostility between the elves and the shifters began because a blight struck elven agriculture shortly after the shifters arrived and because the shifters refused to pay taxes or make sacrifices. Over two years, the clans were killed off or enslaved by the elves with the help of Archon and his mercenaries.
