Elves in Agon

Elves are assholes. This is just sort of a truism in my campaigns, and probably has been for the last 20 years or so. They might be assholes in different ways or from different circumstances, but they're always assholes. In Agon, this is no different. 

Elves are not from this world, but from another world that humans just call Elfland. (They don't have time for this strings-of-consonants-and-apostrophes bullshit.) At some point in the past, Elfland was directly connected to the world of mortals- Elves could freely enter this world, transferring between this mortal world and Elfland as easily as a human passes into or out of a building in town...so of course, when the Cataclysm hit, elves peaced out. The gates to Elfland vanished, and with them, most of the elves. 

There are still some elves on Agon. Many of them are impetuous elven youths satisfying their curiosity. Some are elven exiles, banished to the mortal realm. Some claim that they came here to help mortals, but nobody in their right mind would believe in an altruistic elf.
