Return of Twilight
One of the two races of elves encountered by the first party, The Misinkii elves were once part of a massive elven empire many thousands of years ago when a great Misinkii King united his people with the hardy Kontauran elves to the west. After a time of great prosperity, their nation began to decay, which quickened when man became less nomadic and settled in the fertile valley between the Misinkii Forest and Kont Swamp. This led to some friction with the young humans.
Beset by both internal and external strife, the Misinkii nation weakened further due to attacks from the beastmen, wild half-animal humanoids from the southern parts of their forest. Most of the time, these disorganized marauders were just a distraction, but several hundred years ago rose up in a great horde that threatened the Misinkii elves and humans alike. They formed an alliance to stop the threat, but the Kontauran elves declined. Luckily, the elves and humans prevailed and the beastmen were driven back.
More recently, the beastmen threat returned, but was defeated again thanks in part to the first party. Shortly after, the Misinkii elves rode to aid the distrustful humans of Tyris in their battle against the beastmen in the battle of the southern hills, raising hopes for a new era in peaceful relations*.
