I too noticed the lack of any mention of majestic Felwithe, I certainly find it curious if nothing else. Indeed this could possibly bode ill for the glorious home of the High Elves. Especially seeing as there is clear mention of two of the other major cities on the continent, those being Ak'Anon and Kelethin of course. This brings to mind another good question though, why havn't we heard any mention of Kaladim either???In my mind, there are only two possibilites...SOE is purposely not mentioning Felwithe (or Kaladim for that matter) in hopes of releasing a trickle of information in bite size bits in hopes of keeping us guessing and holding our interest until this Winter when we can step on the wooded shores of Faydwer again.-OR-They havn't mentioned Felwithe (or Kaladim) b/c the cities have been totally and utterly destroyed, or otherwise lost to us. While it might be neat to explore the ruins of both cities and cleanse them of whatever foulness inhabits them, I would MUCH rather see them whole and standing. Aged a bit, maybe even falling into slight disrepair, but hopefully they at least still stand and are inhabited by the races that called them home. Felwithe was home to my first, and longest played, EQ toon and I would be sorely upset to see that it has fallen. I have visions (or maybe dilusions) of striding proudly through the gates of Felwithe again, a long wayward High Elf finally returining to the home he has missed so much in the last few hundred years. We can only hope....<p>Message Edited by teddyboy420 on <span class=date_text>05-24-2006</span> <span class=time_text>09:34 PM</span>

Yea, I don't think the lack of mentioning implies that we'll never hear of or see it again, if fact I think it implies the opposite.And, though my main in EQ1 was a Dark Elf, I absolutely loved Felwithe and Kelethin.<div></div>

<P>Felwithe is gone. While Faydewer as a whole escaped the shattering, it did not escape the War of the Fay.</P> <P>Kelethin was scarred, having some of the trees supporting the city chopped down, but Felwithe was completly and totally sacked. The King was killed (Theris Thex). If the highelven king died in that battle, the city had to have taken alot of damage.</P> <P>Overall, the Darkelves main target was the highelves. They left the Woodelves and Kelethin to the Orcs, and admist that distraction they took Felwithe. I seriously doubt the city will be livable.  It may even be in a worse state then Neriak/Fallen Gate. (At least Shintou hopes so). </P> <P>Also, you have to remember who was left back in the Faydark. Not the Elves, not the Highelves, the Fay creatures remained in the forest (Ok, I think it did say that some woodelves remained behind, but I'm pretty sure all of the Highelves left for Qeynos).</P> <P>Now, with no highelves in the Faydark after the War of the Fay was over, guess who didn't rebuild their city. Kelethin was rebuilt because of the Fay creatures. They like the outdoors, a tree city is perfect for them. A City of marble is not. Also, which city is hardest to rebuild, Kelethin which is just an overgrown treehouse I used to play in as a kid, or Felwithe, the city of complex design and Marble, carved out of the mountainside.</P> <P>Felwithe is gone. If you are lucky, it will be a duengon filled with the undead. As for Kaladim.. who knows. They only helped with defending the Faydark from the elves.. I didn't read anything about Kaladim even being attacked, but that is a possibility.</P> <P>ALSO, this raises a question about Kaladim:</P> <P>IF the Butcherblock mountains, like the rest of Faydwer, was spared from the rendering/shattering, [expletive haxx0red by Raijinn] did they leave? If their home was unhurt by war, why would they depart? Could it be that they were so caught up in helping Qeynos in the Battle of Defiance that they forgot after the battle was done to go home, or was the sea too unpassable? Or Could Mayong Mistmorre and his vampire minions have a part in driving them away?</P> <P>The elves left because of the War of the Fay.</P> <P>The Gnomes left because their Clockworks showed them who really was boss.</P> <P>The Dwarves left because ? I don't know, maybe they just like following pretty elves.</P> <P> </P>

<P>Woah, obviously Shin has some pent up hostility towards the High Elves, or he believes very much in the power of the Dark Elves.</P> <P>Some strategical analysis worth mentioning:  There was only one way into Kelethin, and that was a tunnel going under a mountain.  The city itself, therefore, was amazingly defendable, not only was it defendable, but it had its own water source, who knows how long they could have stayed under seige.</P> <P>We really have no clue what happened to Kaladim or Felwithe, since NOTHING has been mentioned, including if it had been conquered by the dark elves.  When I read that they had successfully killed King Tearis Thex, I took it to mean that he had fallen in battle.  Just as Naythox traveled to Faydwer with his troops to wage battle, I would not be at all surprised if King Tearis also fought along side his troops, as was common in a bygone era (perhaps if the leaders of countries still waged war from the trenches instead of thousands of miles away, there might be a few less wars, but that's a different topic altogether).  Also, I have heard no tale in Qeynos of the dispersion of the Koada'Dal because of the destruction of their home city.  HAD they come to Qeynos for that reason, you would think that they would mention such things.  Actually, I was sort of under the impression that a large majority of Qeynos' population came from adventurers of all races, cultures, and creeds who sought refuge during the Age of Cataclysm, or perhaps asylum while the Rallosians were on their compeigns.  We know that the dwarf mentioned in the Tome of Destiny, when talking about the Rending, was in Qeynos seeking refuge during the Rendings, before this, he had made the Karanas his home.  Similarly, there were several dwarf families living in Qeynos during the Age of Turmoil.  I seem to recall several elves in and around Surefall and Jaggedpine, as well.  Who says that those who helped to reconstruct the two cities of Freeport and Qeynos were sent directly from their home cities?  In fact, because of in passability of the seas, and the lack of teleportation, adventurers all over Antonica would have been forced into the remaining cities, planning, of course, to only stay there until passage home was available.</P> <P>I think that Felwithe, while possibly suffering some damage from the Rending and the Shattering, could very possibly still exist in some fashion, perhaps still under construction.  Could it have been laid waste by the Teir'Dal?  Sure, anything is possible.  But until specific information is released regarding anything on Faydwer, we really have no clue what the state of things are.</P> <P> </P> <P> </P>

I don't think that Felwithe will be anything more than a dungeon zone when Faydwer goes live. Simply because if it were an actual city zone, it would have been mentioned in the list of features in the expansion pack. Which it isn't. It's a shame, because if Felwithe were intact, it would get all of the stuck up High Elves from Castleview out of Qeynos where people don't have to listen to their xenophobia anymore.

in the Highelf lore book it say that Tunare came to a bunch of Highelfs in there dreams and told them to take refuge in the city of men(I think it was in the lore book I remimber reading it ingame somewhere)

<P>I suppose I should take my own advice, and research before I open my mouth <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></P> <P>King Tearis Thex WAS killed in Felwithe, but he was killed by a Teir'Dal assassin, it seems.</P> <P>Although obviously not without its bias, there is no mention that they were successful in their campeign to destroy Felwithe, and they do take credit for routing the Teir'Dal.</P> <P>It seems the Koda'Dal were sent to Qeynos as aid during the war with the Rallosians, and many stayed to help rebuild, and then as the Rending began, were forced to stay.  It was not until after the Battle of Deffiance that the Koada'Dal received the whispers of Quellious to stay in the cities of men.  Who knows, maybe so that they wouldn't be traveling the seas when the Rending began.  Whatever the reason, many stayed, helping with the repairs, and thus, were stranded as the Rending began.</P>

<P><STRONG>i agree shintou does have some hostility towards high elves... </STRONG></P> <P><STRONG></STRONG> </P> <P><STRONG>honestly i dont think during the age of cataclysms a dark elf army could work their way over to faydwer and destory felwithe... even if they got there someone would have noticed and if any dwarves, gnomes, or woodelves were still around they would aid in the battle... if 2 gaurds in eq1 could handle crushbone orcs i think they'd have plenty of backup troops to send to felwithe. An assasin killing their king is much more likely, and i think if felwithe is still around i hope it will at least be a zone like the hidden refuge in TT or something. I think a large portion of highelves prolly are still around in felwithe trying to rebuild while the others were off to help kill orcs but due to the closeness of kelethin and felwithe the surrounding area will prolly be a newbie zone like antonica so maybe in the future felwithe could also become a starting city... on the other hand it would be impossible for halas or rivervale to ever become good starting cities <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> it would be nice to see though! maybe once all of norrath is back to its former self we will see some order come into the world and rivervale, halas, neriak, that one erudite city, and sebillis will come back and be starting cities!! its a nice thought but then eq2 would pretty much be the same as eq!</STRONG></P> <P><STRONG>-Riruk Lightningblade</STRONG></P> <P><STRONG>58 guardian of nektulos</STRONG></P>

<DIV>There will come a time when you shall know all the movements of war that took place on Faydwer. For now, I will tell you a small bit about the grand city of Felwithe and its darker days.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>... A massive force of Neriak dragoons sieged the city of Felwithe. For many weeks the siege held, but the evil horde was too overwhelming and the gates of Felwithe were soon forced wide. In a bloody battle the dragoons defeated the ravaged Koada'Dal defenders and claimed the city of Felwithe as their own. In the wake of the battle, in a final skirmish in the palace, King Tearis Thex of the Koada'Dal fell to the daggers of Neriak. The dark days of Teir'Dal occupation began as the War of the Fay raged on in other regions of Faydwer. ...</DIV>

Please let the Teir'dal who would still be loyal to their previous king in to the new home of old stink town.  At the very least, a series of quests.  And on top of that, please make all pale elves KoS.

<P>When I first entered the Willow Wood as a young wood elf, this is one of my first memories, it was a quest to seek out a monument/graveyard to pay tribute and remember the lives of those lost.  There was a wood elf female there who had a story to tell of the War of the Fay and her sister's death.  She mentions at the end of her story that Kelethin and Felwithe were restored, was she misinformed?  Something I am not aware of happen after that event?  Or do I just need to pay more attention to the lore books in the game? lol</P> <P> </P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “So kind, yet so naïve to the horrors of the past, tragedies to be repeated no doubt.”</P> <P>You say, “The cataclysms have passed.”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “I do not speak of trembling plains and torrential seas, I speak of the bane of elfkind, the eternal struggle between light and dark… between above and below.”</P> <P>You say, “You speak of the dark elves?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “Yes, the elves of below… the Teir’Dal.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Their hatred for the elves of the sun is a plague upon all of Norrath.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Many have died in defense of elfkind, and I believe the bloodshed is far from over.<SPAN>  </SPAN>It is an eternal war that burdens my heart.”</P> <P>You say, “Then do not fight anymore.”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “I wish it were that easy, but I am Feir’Dal, a wood elf, and I am sworn to defend the Laws of Tunare and her children till my final breath passes my lips.<SPAN>  </SPAN>That is a day I look forward to with great rejoice.”</P> <P>You say, “Who is Tunare?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “Tunare is the Mother of All, the goddess of the forest realms, the one who gave life to all who dwell within, including elfkind.<SPAN>  </SPAN>She is growth and preservation.<SPAN>  </SPAN>We elves of the sun are her soldiers and wards.<SPAN>  </SPAN>We live to serve her laws and we die to preserve her children, flora and fauna.”</P> <P>You say, “You would die for this goddess?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “In my days, I have seen a multitude of my fellow treefolke give their lives in defense of Tunare’s laws.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Many were my family.<SPAN>  </SPAN>I am haunted with the visions of battles of yore.<SPAN>  </SPAN>I recall my beloved sister slipping from life while I wept with her in my embrace.”</P> <P>You say, “When did she die?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “She drifted from this realm more then four-hundred-years ago in the Age of Turmoil.<SPAN>  </SPAN>It was the great War of the Fay, the war of the elves.<SPAN>  </SPAN>The elf empire of below and their allies challenged the combined nations of elfkind.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Armies of Teir’Dal, orc, troll and others crept towards the Faydark hoping to extinguish the elves of the sun.”</P> <P>You say, “What is the Faydark?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “The Faydark was one of the last of the great forests of Norrath.<SPAN>  </SPAN>It rested upon a continent far, far from here, taking up most of the land with its billowing evergreen canopy.<SPAN>  </SPAN>It’s grandeur was unmatched.<SPAN>  </SPAN>It’s within this sprawling majesty that we Feir’Dal built our great city in the last of the towering Elddar Trees, the city called Kelethin.”</P> <P>You say, “You fought for this forest?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “I was but an adolescent, barely able to string a bow, yet I fought.<SPAN>  </SPAN>My sister was in her prime, and she was a highly skilled scout, an elite soldier of the Scouts of Tunare.<SPAN>  </SPAN>But even her skill could not prepare her of the tree city of Kelethin for the onslaught from the nother coasts and the orc hordes from Crushbone.”</P> <P>You say, “How did it begin?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “It happened quickly.<SPAN>  </SPAN>The forest empire of my people was greatly protected.<SPAN>  </SPAN>No branch was left without a lookout, the tall masts and far reaching ballistae of the Koada’Dal wave jumpers patrolled the coasts, but still, we couldn’t prepare for the arrival.”</P> <P>You say, “Where did they come from?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “From the depths of the burning wastelands of Crushbone, came the orc hordes.<SPAN>  </SPAN>As we directed our efforts at repelling this force, an armada of war galleys of Neriak breached the coastal mists.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Some say they arrived via a titanic transport ark built by the dark elves deep in the uncharted seas of the Ocean of Tears.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Yet, still, they struck from an unexpected front…”</P> <P>You say, “Where else did they come from?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “Near the heart of the Faydark, the most dangerous of the evil hordes arrived in a portal opened between the underworld and our forest, a portal bound by the ancient teleport spires.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Wave after wave of Teir’Dal dragoon marched from this portal, a juggernaut marching towards the Koada’Dal city in the clouded mountains, Felwithe.”</P> <P>You say, “What about Kelethin?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “The tree city was no target of the dragoons, the orcs of Crushbone kept us under siege, setting much of the Faydark on fire!<SPAN>  </SPAN>Within the raging inferno, the dragoons marched to seize Felwithe.<SPAN>  </SPAN>It is there that the legendary King Tearis’Thex fell to the dark blade.”</P> <P>You say, “Then you lost the war?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “Defeat seemed certain, but as we fought the futile battles on many fronts, the horns of war were heard along the borders of the Faydark!<SPAN>  </SPAN>The brigades of the dwarven empire Kaladim marched in from the western mountains, and from the east came the gnomes of Ak’Anon with their ticking and puffing clockwork army.<SPAN>  </SPAN>The elves of the sun would triumph this day.”</P> <P>You say, “What happened to the evil horde?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “Greatly outnumbered, the dark hordes repelled.<SPAN>  </SPAN>They retreated to the shadowed realms from whence they came.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Some unfortunate ones fled to the Loping Plains seeking a safe haven on the moors of Mistmoore, never to be heard from again.”</P> <P>You say, “So the war was not long?”</P> <P>Thayare Faystrider says, “Don’t let my short tale confuse you.<SPAN>  </SPAN>This war raged on for more than a few seasons.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Blood stained the forest floor, green turned to ash.<SPAN>  </SPAN>It was in the final defense of Kelethin that my sister sustained a mortal blow, dying within my arms, her last breath gracing my tear-soaked face.”</P> <P>You say, “How did you end up here?”<BR><BR><SPAN>Thayare Faystrider says, “Kelethin and Felwithe were restored under the guidance of the princess Queen, Lenya Thex, but the scars remained, both on the land and within my memory.<SPAN>  </SPAN>I departed the Faydark in search of a new life that would bury my visions of war, but as I learned, war is eternal, and it is far reaching.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Since my days in the Faydark, I have traversed much more bloodshed.<SPAN>  </SPAN>It is inescapable, yet I live on to defend the Laws of Tunare and to honor those that have fallen, such as my beloved sister Geeda.”</SPAN></P>

Could it be that they were so caught up in helping Qeynos in the Battle of Defiance that they forgot after the battle was done to go home, or was the sea too unpassable? Or Could Mayong Mistmorre and his vampire minions have a part in driving them away?</p> <p>The elves left because of the War of the Fay.</p> <p>The Gnomes left because their Clockworks showed them who really was boss.</p> <p>The Dwarves left because ? I don't know, maybe they just like following pretty elves.</p> <hr></blockquote>I don't think you are entirely correct.  My Koada Dal wizard is cureently reading about his people's history.  In the book it states that the high elves and their allies managed to defeat the dark elves in the battle for Felwithe.  However, they did leave their city because Quellious (Sp?) contacted many of them directly and informed them that they should take refuge in the cities of man.  After the rending the oceans would be impassible. So the elves that left could not return.  In any case, we don't know what happened to Felwithe.  We don't kow if all elves received the warning, or if all who did took heed of it.  We certainly don't know what has happened in the 500+ years since the rending.  Felwithe may still stand, or it may lie in ruins underwater just like Halas. Ok well now that I have read Vhalen's post I have to wonder why the "History of the Koada Dal" and the wood elf in the Willow Wood are wrong.  Have the elves in Qeynos just deluded themselves?<div></div><p>Message Edited by Iagan the Swarthy on <span class=date_text>05-31-2006</span> <span class=time_text>03:59 PM</span>

<DIV>Thank you Vhalen for clearing that up.  Its as I hoped it would be.  With Faydwer being spared, for the most part, from the rending, does that mean the mighty Teir'Dal still occupy New Neriak?  Its rumored that if Queen Cristanos ever surfaces with her horde from Neriak that she will not be friendly to anyone, even dark elves since they would have been corrupted by the lesser races with being out of her influence.  Would the same hold true for King Naythox?  If he survived on Faydwer, would he and his troops hold to past grudges and philosophies?  Being isolated so long from the rest of the world...well Antonica anyways and more importantly Neriak, would he regard other dark elves from Freeport suspiciously?  It would be nice to see New Neriak prospering.  I would love to see another city in which players can call home but I wont get my hopes up on that one.  I would settle for some quests and non aggro culture.  Maybe even force players to raise faction to enter New Neriak.  I love the sound of that...New Neriak...don't you? :smileyvery-happy:</DIV>

It is not surprising that the others have long been jealous of our place in her heart.  It must be difficult to realize that one's own mother has a clear favorite.  Still, we endeavor to work with the ones that came later, no matter what their issue.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>Jealousy caused the twisting of the Teir'Dal, those pitiful straw-haired children of the dark who mock and challenge us.  They claim lineage to our first royals, in a sad attempt to legitimize their claims to elven blood.  They are truly pathetic.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>The Feir'Dal fawn over us, jumping to do our bidding.  And yet, they manage to fumble all to which they set their hands, and then come begging us for assistance to make things right.  Yes, it is sometimes difficult to be First.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>Through time, we have built many cities of great beauty and grace, which only incited the lesser beings of Norrath to further jealousy.  They assaulted us, able only to tear down that which they are unable to produce themselves.  One finds that our history is filled with such accounts, of the lesser beings taking out their rage and frustration upon the Koada'Dal. And, of course, when someone who believes in good is attacked, they call first upon us to rally to their cause. The pattern becomes a bore after a while.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>Though many have attempted to strike us down, it is the accursed Teir'Dal that are simply too idiotic to realize they can never win.  During the War of Fay, these cretins allied themselves with numerous unspeakable beings to attempt the destruction of Felwithe.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>Part II<BR>=====</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>Not surprisingly, the Teir'Dal fought without honor or plan.

Of course, honor is not something that is within the grasp of their simple minds.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>Tunare did not abandon her First Children.  She gave us insight into the ways of the Teir'Dal and we were able to rout them.  Naturally, they had left their rear unguarded, no doubt expecting reinforcements.  Instead they were abandoned by their own leaders; such is their way.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>Through the Age of War, we sent assistance to the forces defending Tunaria, though the humans called it "Antonica." That an upstart race of the barbarians should remove the name of Tunare and replace it with the name of another human fills us with such annoyance. In the end, Tunare alone sent help to her First Children while the other gods remained silent.  While she did not appear directly to us, we could feel her guidance flowing through our veins.  Faith such as ours is always rewarded.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>Part III<BR>=====</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>The Battle of Defiance ended and many of us remained near Qeynos to direct the repairs necessary.  Qeynos has never been a beautiful city, like Felwithe, but for the work of human-kind, it is tolerable.  Our aim was to inject some grace into its stark design.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>We received the Word of the Tranquil in our dreams.  It is said that very few others received the Word directly, but it is obviously no surprise that the majority of Tunare's First Children were visited directly.  The Word was troubling, however.  Troubling, for it conveyed that we should seek refuge in the cities of men.  The cities of men, not Felwithe!  It was as though our faith was being tested.  Would we heed the Word or would we remain at Felwithe?</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>Some of us chose to remain in Qeynos rather than return to Felwithe immediately to retrieve our art and treasured heirlooms. Alas!  We did not know that the doom foreshadowed in the Word would follow it so quickly!  When the Rending was over, the shape of the lands was forever changed and the seas impossible to cross.  And for once, Tunare was unable to guide us home, though we could sense her sympathy for our loss. Were the gods punishing the others for their war-like ways?  Many scholars believe this is the case, for they lost faith in their creators and set out to destroy one another.  It was through their mischief that Luclin shattered, though we know not how.</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT color=#ff6600>We are the First Children and continue to keep watch over the rest of the world on Tunare's behalf.  The task is difficult and our charges do not appreciate our assistance.  Still, we do what we must for we understand the responsibility of being First.<BR></FONT></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>So, it seems, Vhalen has filled in some of the darkest details, but one can hope, that the historian who write these words, wrote true.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Felishanna.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<P>Nope, not Vhalen, again, I point to Gaed's post on the conversation with Thayare Faystrider, you can find her yourself in Willow Wood, near the grave yard.  She sits there and prays for the soul of the sister she lossed in the War of the Fay.  The snippet you remember is below:</P> <P> </P> <P></P> <HR> Thayare Faystrider says, “Greatly outnumbered, the dark hordes repelled.<SPAN>  </SPAN>They retreated to the shadowed realms from whence they came.<SPAN>  </SPAN>Some unfortunate ones fled to the Loping Plains seeking a safe haven on the moors of Mistmoore, never to be heard from again.” <HR> <P></P> <P> </P> <P>From the research I've done on the Loping Planes, it's mostly populated with Kobold Clans, and Mistmoore's werewolves, with a few orc camps thrown in for flavor.  If the place shows up in EoF, it sounds like it would be a fun zone!  When I think about it, the image of Commonlands on steroid comes to mind <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> Kobolds and werewolves and orcs, oh my!</P> <P> </P>

<STRONG>so basically when we get back felwithe will still be inhabited with the most stuck up of all high elves that refused to leave our grand home of felwithe? since the dark elves got pushed back i imagine theres still some elves there but by the sound of things felwithe is prolly in beat up shape. O well nothing new high elves are used to losses and they will probably rebuild an even better city, lol new neriak, u wish dark elf scum <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></STRONG>

As long as there's no blueberries in it. I'd rather see my home in ruins then see it owned by Darkelfs.but I'm praying to Tunare that it still stands.

in the very earliest of preview pictures for EQ2, there were screenshots of part of Felwithe that looked awesome.  Dig around on the internet and find them.  Hopefully that means it's been worked on for some time.   <div></div>

<P>I don't remember who posted it and I don't feel like scrolling back to quote, but I definately agree with the fact that Mistmoore has played a roll in whatever the current state of Felwithe is.</P> <P>All through EQL we know that Mayong had been trying to reach god status. Now of course in EQL he has already attained that, but it isn't the same in EQII. But just because the time lines between EQL and EQII are different doesn't mean that Mayong's attitude has changed. I have a feeling that after the War of the Fay, ole Mistmoore decided to play some cards from his hands.</P> <P>I likewise remember reading something to the extent of 'After the invaders were pushed away from the light elves, an even stronger and darker threat made it's move'.</P> <P> </P> <P>If anything this could promise to be an extremely entertaining storyline.</P>

And if for some reason that Felwithe became "New Neriak" I would lead armed revolts to restore it back to its former glory.Maybe the Devs could give us a screenshot of Felwithe. All I know is that I am taking my High Elf back to faydwer into Felewithe immediately! Plus if it is taken over, maybe there will be a live event to take it back over... Sort of a war to get it back. <div></div><p>Message Edited by Josgar on <span class=date_text>08-02-2006</span> <span class=time_text>06:41 PM</span>

<div>ahhh a home of marble for my Dark Elf... how fitting.<blockquote><hr>Vhalen wrote:<div>There will come a time when you shall know all the movements of war that took place on Faydwer.

For many weeks the siege held, but the evil horde was too overwhelming and the gates of Felwithe were soon forced wide. In a bloody battle the dragoons defeated the ravaged Koada'Dal defenders and claimed the city of Felwithe as their own. In the wake of the battle, in a final skirmish in the palace, King Tearis Thex of the Koada'Dal fell to the daggers of Neriak. The dark days of Teir'Dal occupation began as the War of the Fay raged on in other regions of Faydwer. ...</div><hr></blockquote></div>
