ABOUT THE ELVES (& Others)
The elves in this story are not the ones you may be familiar with from mythology, or even Tolkien. While they do share some qualities with such creatures—pointy ears, long lives—they are also parts of very distinct clans within the Blue Kingdoms milieu.
According to the Blue Kingdoms Sourcebook…
Nyarri elves are hedonists. (Fansuri, Faye, Wendi)
Astiri elves are starwatchers, dreamers. (Brandi)
Drow are an offshoot of the Yndari (underground) elves who delved too deep and became enmeshed with dark powers. (Ragnara)
Orks (not to be confused with the orcs in other fantasy stories) came into existence only recently, in the Tournament of Death 3, when they were created from a lesser, goblin-like race called jenrats. (Torika)
Of course, like everybody in the world, each of our characters has her own personality, distinct from the qualities of her people. Tori, for instance, is an ork who doesn’t like fighting, and Ragnara, a former drow assassin, would just as soon fuck someone as kill them (most of the time).
