Lords of the White Isles
To sail the oceans of the world is to risk encounter with the self-appointed masters of the seas. With mighty fleets protecting their island home, the Arandai Empire rises and falls with the tides of time, but its reach is always felt across the continents. By the gleam of silvered armour, or by ordered cries from grand warships, you may know of the approach of the Highborn Elves.
Though the Highborn have retreated from many of their former conquests, they continue to hold outposts on islands and coastlines across the globe. Marshalled by the government of the Pearl Queen, Arandai galleons dominate the seas and control much of the global seatrade. Well-equipped garrisons display the deadly grace of the elves, honed over centuries of training and coupled with powerful magic. Highborn towers are circled by wondrous beings of legend, while inside, great minds apply themselves to dreams of splendour and glory.
The forces of the Highborn Elves army can be played based on mighty winged dragons, elite infantry, a defensive army where forces are split between shooting at range and selective combats, or as an aggressive army trying to overwhelm the opponent with many fast and hard-hitting threats. Highborn Elves are well armed and armoured but have little toughness behind their plate and mail.
Lore of Highborn Elves
Do Elves have beards?
• Do male elves have beards?
It seems the barber community has finally taken an interest in my work - perhaps in a hope to earn my custom. Unfortunately the unkempt beard is something of a status symbol for a Sage.
I have never observed an elf with a beard. Nor with other obvious bodily hair, apart from that upon their head. Unless clean shaven is a common style choice, this would lead me to believe that elves are not afflicted by the same grooming requirements as we men.
