Yeah, I was going for Forlorn with the character. Thanks for the advice!
Are there elven enclaves in Taldor?
Taldor seems, at least on first glance, to be relatively stable, in the sense that villages aren't wiped off the map every other week due to things like war or monster activity. Are there instances where stuff like this happens? I tend to get the impression that the big nations of the Inner Sea, like Taldor, Cheliax, Andoran, Qadira and Osirion are "peaceful" in the sense that the kinds of tragic backstories like villages burned to the ground by marauding armies of insane cultists generally don't happen.
I'm trying to figure out why the elf I'm working on would be orphaned and thus become Forlorn, yesee.
Also, what happens to Ulfen who fail the Ulfen Guard? Are they executed because given their close proximity to the emperor it's kinda like treason, or would they just be fired?
All of the Inner Sea is relatively stable, but you can have bandits or monsters or the plague or whatever swoop in and destroy small villages or towns anywhere therein. That can happen pretty much anywhere. It's what happened to Kyra, for example. Galt's probably the best nation for you to have this happen in, I suppose, and it's right next to Taldor. But it can absolutely happen anywhere in the Inner Sea.
Failed Ulfen Guards... dunno. Haven't really put much personal thought into them at all. I suppose they'd be exiled and/or shunned at best. WHY they failed would influence their fate.
AND Galt is right between Kyonin and Taldor! That's perfect!
I'll work on the Ulfen Guard thing myself, I guess. I want the failed guard to survive for this story, after all!
It's all starting to come together! Thanks James! :D
And now to ask a question that DOESN'T have to do with this train of thought:
Who's cooler, Visigoths or Ostrogoths?
