Foyis

One of the oldest established regions of Fortuna Terra.

Foyis is a decadent, forested region, the center being the densest. With crowds of trees, hills, the two lakes (Hiru and Nuln) and the rivers and waterfalls between them. Foyis is three times larger than Veros, with five somewhat larger settlements within.

Nadol, is built on the shore of the larger lake, Hiru. the town extends onto the lake surface, supported by many beams and rafters. The people there are as calm as the waves (but could easily be swept into a “typhoon” in battle), the elves that live in Nadol have a slight blue tint to their skin and hair.

Kimji, the sky town. The elves of Kimji are considered strange by the rest of elf society (though the feeling is mutual). Kimji was built in a peculiar part of the Foyis Forest, an ever-autumn glade. The red and orange leaves reflect the fire these elves feel for life. Kimji elves also show an ingenuity and desire to take flight.

Doso, what kimji elves call “dullso”. These elves take root in the oldest part of the forest. They show great patience, and reflect it in their amazing discipline. They live in a clearing that they determine to be the very center of the forest’s origin. Their respect for nature goes as far as only making shelter with rocks and fallen wood, surprisingly sturdy though.

Gaja, the Town of Silk and Marble, is just that. These elves have accepted control of the world around them, and have tamed it as they see fit. They live in luxury, with little work required by menial labor done through magic. Other elf societies frown on Gaja, calling them “petty” “superficial” “lazy” “wasteful”, but they bear it all with a grin, believing their cushioned way of life is the best. Gaja is situated closest to the border to Veros, and does much trade with the Verosians, despite protests from the other elves.

Norjin, the hidden elves. Although they do not have a settlement to live in, the Norjin elves are still distinct from the rest of their kin. Lives of nomadic secrecy, they oath unto themselves to experience each elf tribe, and through that, understand them as a whole. Norjin are one with the wind (in a way unlike Kimji elves), although seldom seen (even in plain sight), they are revered among the elves, even Gaja, when matters are serious.

obviously, Foyis is heavily populated by elves, despite efforts of other races. Many people attempt to come and live in elf settlements (if only to see if the rumors are true), but are turned down, by force if necessary. The Norjin are always patrolling for warbands from any region who dares en-roach onto Foyis. The borders outlooking the western plains (which soon turn to the Wasteland) for any orc forces on the horizon. The elves covet their beautiful land, with a strong conviction, but many tribes will allow other races if they have something to offer, or are truly “like them”.

To the southwest are the border-walls to Veros. To elves, these walls represent the trickery of humankind. In very early times, humans were good allies with the elves, but soon showed they only wanted the wood that came with the forest. For destroying much of the land they hold dear, many elves have shut out requests for trade from Veros, except Gaja, which derives joy from the wealth experienced.

There is no true established leader of Foyis, although the Norjin come very close, being the wisest and protectors of the land. Each tribe is expected to take care of their own affairs, with war being the exception. The elders of each tribe are usually the leaders, but again, Gaja does things differently, with the wealthy leading.

Foyis views magic as a piece of nature, and that it will always be, so why not simply live with it? Some tribes exercise discipline with magic (Doso and Norjin), and others like to do with it what they want (Kimji and Gaja). The tribe of Nadol stays in between, using it blatantly at some times, and other times knowing not to.
