Back in the days of the True Elven Kingdom, Verenmar stood as a rock upon which her enemies broke like the tide. Verenmar stood through the Mortal War with the humans, the Dark Skirmishes with the orcs, the Blood Soaked Decade spent fighting the Dwarves, and the War of the Stone that ravaged the land, burnt cities, and killed history and secrets, never to be seen again. Through all these battles and more, Verenmar has stood and never fallen. Countless elven generals have distinguished themselves at this fortress and had their names etched into its stones. But no general has earned more glory, or scorn, than General Kinnea Morrowe, first Queen of Verenmar.
p. In the last days of the True Kingdom, the elves of Verenmar fought in a Nameless War against the newly corrupted Drow. After many bloody days against them, they were pushed back, and their mark was felt across the land. As a means of placating the other races, the Elven King Meravai the Just, resolved to surrender Verenmar to the humans. Furious, General Morrowe protested the decision and rallied her people. When King Meravai tried to force the issue, Morrowe and her people seceded from from the True Kingdom, solidifying its downfall. Those that disagreed with the King’s decision and sympathized with Verenmar left the Kingdom and joined the elves at the fort, turning Verenmar into the city it is today. Those elves that live outside the rule of the King call themselves Free Elves or Verenmar Elves, though outsiders usually call them wood elves, even though most elves hail from the woods, while the elves of the remaining elf kingdom call them Gofgoh, or those that abandoned their duty.
