For many centuries, the forested land of Staude has been torn my civil war. Within its borders, two types of elves battle for dominance, the light and dark. There are only slight differences between the two pointed eared peoples. The fair skinned light elves are more elegantly dressed, preferring to use the mind rather than fist. This fits well with their skill over light based magic. On the other hand, dark elves are renown hunters. Unlike their relatives, they are experts at hand to hand combat using their aura based abilities. Their skin has a purple hint or pitch black skin which gives them the ability to camouflage with the dark night. At one time these two people were once one, but the history has long been forgotten.
