Secrets of the Taroc Valley
Elves are native to the continent of Telerann. Thousands of years ago they were slaves to the Haolkar Empire. When the Empire disappeared, the Elves of Telerann formed the Shining Nation, a highly developed magical nation. In time the Shining Nation became the Shining Empire., and then a terrible plague struck. In just a few short months the elves abandoned almost all of their communities, retreating to islands, cutting themselves off from the mainland for hundreds of years until the plague died out.
