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
The Arandai Empire
The Arandai Empire is not what it once was, but it remains exceptionally potent, with awe-inspiring naval power. Its territories on every continent are growing, along with control of maritime trade. Colonies garrisoned by the Pearl Throne include the icy northern citadel of Nedarac, where precious Phoenix eggs are found; the strategic stronghold of Gan Dareb, in the Middle Sea; and Celed Ryman, a fortress monastery scarred by pursuit of magical knowledge in the southern part of the Great Ocean. Additionally, there are outposts in Sagarika, Taphria and around the Sea of Thirst that remain loyal to the Arandai, among other locations.
