Tower of the Greater Gods
A form of high Society, so to speak. The Noble Elves are usually obsessed with knowledge, power & magic. In fact, they tend to be greedy for it. Hording it away up in their expensive homes within the big cities. The Noble Elves were once a simpler race, much like their cousin the Wild Elf they valued nature and the feywild. Consumed by their lust for knowledge of the world, most Noble Elf began to value gold and artifacts, and lost their touch with the feywild. Gold and knowledge gave them power over many. So they left humble beginnings and populated the big cities, rising up the chains to become the elite, rich, high society. Attempting to oppress the poor and uneducated they look down on many, especially the humans. Not all Noble Elf are this way, however. Some do feel a stronger connection to their ancestral roots, helping the lower classes and living amongst the wild. Many Noble Elf rule over small cities and town, but luckily one hasn’t yet taken the throne of any of the three kingdoms. Although it is rumored that many Noble Elf Advisors have tried.
