Brothers of the Tor
The last vestige of true elven culture, the island state of Haven is a wonder seen by few humans. It is a land that lives in perfect harmony between civilization and nature and provides all the elven populace requires to live and thrive. The population of Haven is quite small, numbering less then 10,000 and is ruled by a council of 100 of the oldest elves, known as the century. Haven was founded after the ascendancy of humans on the mainland became apparent, and the elves needed a place to hide. They decided on Haven for it was the only island the elves knew of that was of temperate climate and large enough to support a sizable population. The island was already populated by humans before their arrival, but the elves made short work of the humans and established a beautiful new realm. While the rest of the elven world withered back on the mainland, Haven flourished. The elves of Haven hold their brothers back on the mainland in disdain, believing the elves who remained to have muddied blood that has been tainted by humanity.
