The Elder Races were the 5 oldest races in existence, most scriptures suggest that the 5 were chosen by the gods to look after the world.
The Elder Races were given areas to look after by the gods:
- Dragons: given the sky
- Giants: given The Frozen North, Northern Halcann and the hills
- Genies: given places of elemental power, volcanic islands and fertile lands (fire - Efreet), the mountaintops (air - Djinn), the south pole and the sea (water - Marid), the desert and the deep underground (earth - Dao).
- Elves: was not given a place, but instead served in the Higher Planes and wherever their divine masters were in the World.
- Dwarves: given the Serpentspine Mountains
Fate of the Elder RacesEdit
By modern day all the Elder Races have passed their zenith and are often seen in decline.
- Dragons: was wiped to near extinction and most reduced to low intelligence
- Giants: wiped to extinction by the Precursor Empire, legacy continues through lesser variants like trolls and ogres
- Genies: banished to the Elemental Planes during The Dissipation
- Elves: global empire destroyed through civil war, the race divided into subraces
- Dwarves: vast underground empire destroyed by the orcs, regaining it fully is near-impossible
