Akara: Lands of Chaos
Quel’Thanas, nestled within the Gilded Wood, is the homeland of the elves of Akara. Here they have protected their forest for eons without number. It is a rich land, fecund and gentle. It’s heart is A’uld Ruhn, the elven capital city. Here there is peace, very few occurences of Chaos incursions are reported. Those that do try are crushed by a massive and fleeting standing army of fully 50,000 elves. Queen Aglanna of House Sellanon rules the realm, her husband long dead in the Rift Wars.
The queen is a fair and just ruler, governed by logic and reason. So it is in her land. A traveler, if he is possessed of no ill-will, will find comfort and shelter aplenty. There are many outlying villages situated in the forest and in clearings. There are even some in the hill-lands just oustide the forest.
It is rumored that of late these outlying villages have come under attack by a horde of goblinoids.
