Age of Ballads
The first of the two Elf Kingdoms, Nencelduar has been at war with the splintered Thuledim-Ortorath to the North for several Human generations.
When the Fey came to the world and magic was gifted to humans, some of the Elves of the nation of Nencelduar embraced the Eladrin as ancestors, while half feared the power given to humanity. These ideologies formed a schism and the rift turned into the war.
The Elves of Nencelduar have rejected the ways of the Fey and have changed their behaviors to suit. The belief that the Fey have enchanted the minds of the Elves of Thuledim-Ortorath makes the Nencelduarians reject outward shows of emotion and have made public displays of feelings illegal.
