dark sun, dark times
The Elven people of Athas are known primarily as desert nomads, but as with most races on Athas live in city-states as well. The desert dwelling Elves tend to be territorial and unpredictable. Roving Elven raiding parties are a common threat along trade routes, and deep within the desert. In the city, Elves have a reputation as thieves and charlatans, nearly every city-state has an Elven market place. However the authenticity of the baubles and artifacts sold there is often questionable.
