Age Of Trials
It is not known if elves actually die of old age or not. As the end of their days approaches, elves sail beyond the western sea and do not return. When elves die unnaturally while still in this world, they are buried underneath a newly planted tree. It is said that the spirit of the elf merges with the tree, and over the years becomes a treeman, who the gives his accumulated wisdom in the service of the elves. As their numbers have dwindled throughout the centuries, elven gods have vanished from the world; mayhaps they too have traveled beyond the western sea. Only one elven deity is known to remain in this world.
