History

They were originally an kindred of Elves who dwelt in Athel Loren, they depended on the Wythel trees to provide food and craft equipment from. [1]

Sadly for them, the Wythel began to disappear despite the magic and skills of the kindred and when in -700 IC, Warhawk Rider’s returned with evidence of a flourishing grove in the east, the Kindred decided to find and protect it. They crossed the Grey Mountains, fighting Orcs & Goblins and Skaven as they made their way through the forests of the Black Mountains until finally they reached the grove. [1]

Almost half of the elves perished during the five month journey but on arrival at the groves the survivors held a huge banquet for Isha and [Kurnous]] before the mages began rituals of tree-singing to protect their new home and create dwellings. [1]

The Ranger Alayor encountered the Dwarf Innkeeper Olaf Greybeard gathering berries in the woods and who managed to negotiate with the elves. Now they supply him with ingredients for Olaf's Gaff, an Inn on the road to Karaz-a-Karak and in return he supplies the Warriors with equipment as well as acting as the representative for them. [1]
