War of The New World
The Human Encroachment
Legends of humans circulated throughout Elven history for centuries. At first they were only beings that traveled from across the great sea, and arrived in the Northern lands only to reappear attempting to poach the small wildlife for their skins. The northerners never believed them much of a threat, and even made contact several times with the beings. They didn’t appear hostile, but there were stories of some that were more untrustworthy than others. It was only within the last hundred years that the Green Arrow tribe of Elves learned just how hideous these humans were. We saw them land on our shores. We attempted to make contact, and make peace. The first thing they did was decide that we were unfit for their “God” if one can claim such a heinous being can be anything short of a demon.
Of course we retaliated believing we had driven them out for good we went back to our peaceful way of life. Suddenly months later their sea traveling vessels blotted the horizon with their pristine, and unnatural banners. They landed, and quickly we met them with spears. Unfortunately their weapons sounded of thunder, and we were quickly broken. Fleeing back into the forest our fate with decades of war was sealed. They attempted to storm our forests many times, but failed since we know our forests more than they ever could. The spirits guided our hands in thwarting their encroachment. Unfortunately it was not enough. They eventually did manage to destroy our main body of hunters, and have even set up a large stone structure in the center of our forest. We were forced to flee to the surrounding mountains, and unfortunately we’re on our last stand. Our scouts report that it is not only our tribe that suffers, but every Elven tribe along the coastline is facing these humans. We may only have a few more months of survival before our tribe has been completely wiped out, but we will give the humans a fight that will be etched in song and tale for the remainder of time!
Our hunters may be strong, but even they fall before the human thunder sticks.
