The Ari'ilden Saga
The Elves of the East Continent (Yorélië in Elven) are the most culturally distinct of the four known races of Verden. Worshiping Úatar, the Elves exist in scores of tribes throughout the Eastern Jungles, believed to be constantly warring and feuding with one another. Their culture heavily emphasizes pain and sacrifice as a means to both spiritual and temporal improvement, and the warlike reality of their civilization supports this emphasis.
Invasion of Tarras
In the autumn of SA 1341, a large force of Elves, highly organized, has crossed over the Black Sea, Icewind Isle, and Sea of Storms to invade the North Hold. This army bears little resemblance to the feuding tribes reported by the Seer of the East, and has sacked many small villages, as well as Antaly and likely Markand. The army laid siege to Avalon from October 28th to the early hours of November 23rd in SA 1341. See The Battle of Avalon for more detail.
