The Felling of Nortlend
The Golden Principality is an elven dominion that was in the heart of its reign in the year 1450 SER under the rule of Elurin. During this time the humans to the north and north east lived in peace with the elves. In the year 1550 SER the 800 year old Elurin was assassinated by his second cousin; the young Alahir. During his rule the humans came to fear his rule. While the northern provinces including modern day Havern decided to submit to his rule, the humans in the east refused his authority. They rebelled officially in the year 1583 marking the beginning of the Gold Rebellion. Since Alahir’s defeat at The Battle of the Fifty Slain the elven dominion has slowly had to rebuild, but this time as a democracy. The would be queen, Nimrellye is believed to hold much contempt with the dominion but has not been seen in many a year. Many believe she is plotting revenge on the city, while others think she was assassinated before she could inflict harm.
