d100 Elven Ruins






































Elves ruled the world in the dawn age after dragons and giants and trolls. Elves tell man was created at the end of the dawn age so elves no longer had to make sacrifices to the gods.Humans and orcs have thrived and are no longer under the shadow of the elves. Elven ruins are everywhere.

These might be good for Swordfish Islands too
