The forest is not just home to the elves, it is their soul. An elf that strays too far from Deepwood will eventually wither and die. So it is with the centaurs, hippogriffs, elks, bears, and dragons that fight under their banner. During times of peace, all of Sylvan embrace a proud sectarianism that rivals the separation between factions themselves. During times of war, all of Sylvan unites against those who would encroach upon their verdant domain. Three elvish sects lead their army: the Tethir, whose deadly archers claim the bow as the quintessential elvish weapon. The Norfang, who prefer swords, knives, and glaives to deliver their silent attacks. Lastly, the Deepwood, who remain loyal to the life-giving magic at the heart of their heritage. The combination of their powers is a force of speed, stealth, and cunning, causing the heart of every enemy to sink when Sylvan warriors appear on the battlefield.
