Ellriendi Elves

The river Grunnthraesir divides the Ellriendi Forest into two halves: the Groennendr (east) and the Elding (west).

The elves must protect the forest, maintaining a perimeter guard at all times.

The Elf King may lead a contingent outside the forest in extreme circumstances—say, to fight in a climactic battle against Chaos.

The Elf Queen’s Court does not move. The Elf Queen and the Court defend the Groennendr’s center hex, where they guard a secret, with their lives.

On the strategic map, the three Elf Regiments are divided into two battalions, 17 elves each, identified by their regiments and the “North” or “South” designator.

Arkthark’s regiment consists of goblins, hobgoblins, and bugbears augmented by an ogre and three flyers—wyvern, griffon, and hippogrif (roc types). The elves are led by an elf-hero-wizard accompanied by two elf-wizards.

Elf Strengths

  • Many Heroes and Super-heroes.
  • Many Wizards.
  • Many enchanted items.

Elf Weaknesses

  • Must remain within the forest.
  • Few fantasy creatures.
  • No mercenaries.
