Will of The Mark
Aerenel is an island continent inhabited by elves that lies to the southeast of Khorvaire. After the fall of the giant civilization in Xen’drik much of the elven race fled to Aerenal. Here they have established their own nation where a court of Undying rules over the living.
The island is infused with magic. Manifest zones allow astral and shadow energy to flow over the land creating a center of power unique in the world. The island’s nature and elven religious beliefs combine to allow Aerenal’s inhabitants to distort the line between life and death.
On most of the island, the honored dead walk among the living, and the living revere them. Worthy elves gain immortality among the undying. Whether sage or soldier, benevolent undead aid and advise the living in the hope that such service will one day qualify them to join the powerful undead elves that make up the Undying Court.
