Region & Society

Regions in which the race is found, including regions they have divergent behaviors or statistics.


The majority of High Elves consider Arcadian to be their mother tongue. As it is the root language of most modern planar languages, their fluency in Arcadian affords them a degree of flexibility and confidence in their interactions with Outsiders and those descended from them, such as the Faerie. When dealing with the other races of Lorithandar, they may switch into Common to avoid miscommunication.
