History of Danen

The elves originated in the world of Magic. A separate dimension from the three mooned world of the humans. In time, much to the chagrin of the elders, the Magic started to die. The elders couldn't figure out why it was dieing or how to restore it and they had to make plans of escape, for if they were caught in the Magic when it died, being a magical race they would die too . The elders took what they could of the Magic and put it into crystals taken from the Royal's palace walls and opened the door to the dimension of the humans emerging into a valley deep in the mountains. These Elves, using the Magic of the crystals to supplement their own magic shaped the rocks of the mountains into a temporary home for themselves and named it Landing. Deciding there had to be a better place to live they sent groups of elves, designated the Honored Ones, out into the world to interact with the humans and find a better place to live. Again, using the Magic, they picked different parts of the world and sent the Honored Ones there.

Each group was designated a different terrain and area of the globe to study and learn about, with everything they would need including Honored Ones with abilities suited for that particular terrain, A Rock shaper or tree shaper, a Healer, an astronomer to lead the way and a history keeper to keep records of their travels...

The largest group stayed at Landing to wait for information from the others. One went to the Savannah to learn about the land and it's inhabitants; one to the woodlands to learn of it's trees and seasons; one to the ocean to live on the beaches and learn about the waters of this world; a couple of different groups went to two different mountain ranges thinking they would find a large enough place to house all of the elves; one group to the plains to learn of the animals inhabiting the tall grasses and open places; One to the frozen realm to see if it was possible to live in the frigged snows; one group to the Jungle to learn of it's plants and layers; and one group was to be travelers, traveling between all of the tribes and delivering news and information to each other and Landing. All elves on this world are full blooded and immortal, with exception to a choice few in the Woodlands and Plains. (But that's another story.)

Through time, some tribes disappeared due to humans or dangerous living situations and the Travelers eventually lost track of them all, and eventually ,through generations, forgot their duties. All tribes came to believe the "other tribes" were just stories told by their Honored Ones. The traveling elves still traveled the world of Danen but split into two groups. One was called the Star people, all of which disappeared leaving no real trace of themselves. The others learned to live amongst the humans as a group of gypsies and tinkers, living from human town to town, and putting on acts for the gullible humans, who on this world were easy to get along with but not all excepting.

This is my world, I hope you like it. There are many tribes with different ways of life to chose from. Maybe someday they will all be reunited again?

If any of these tribes sound interesting feel free to visit my site. We have plenty of tribes and elves to be adopted. Every so often I will highlight an elf of the week here that is up for adoption so check back.

She was born with silver eyes, but after the attack, she changed her one eye to red in anger and mourning, and later kept it that way as a reminder of her hatred of humans.

She used to be so easy going, loving, and sweet natured, She was called Carefree, but after the deaths, she became withdrawn and quick to anger. Snapping at everyone, the others started calling her Longfang. Her temper has mellowed over time, but when she gets around humans she goes into a rage.

She agreed to let him travel with them, so long as he did all of the dealings with humans. When they crossed the mountain pass and into the human territories she was terrified. Not only could she not stand humans, these humans were so different from the ones she was used to. They wore clothes, lived in homes made of wood and stone! She kept her temper in check as Icarus got them passage across the Great Waters at Demon Passage.

I want to welcome all of my new players! Plus invite new ones. We are still active and excepting. We have 4 tribes excepting player created elves; Floating peak - Mountain elves, Frost Bite Lake - Snow elves, Moon Canyon - Savannah elves, and Draco Hall - Dragon bonding elves. Please feel free to check us out and ask questions.

Honorary elf of the month - This is Tale- The chief of the Deep Dwellers while Tynami was away. Will he stay chief now that she is back? Or will he step aside and let his sister take the mantel?



He doesn't have a CIS at the moment and I will let who ever adopts him create it. All I ask is that he is patient, a good leader and a story teller (hence the name). When his sister (half sister Tynami) left the tribe he took his place as chief not sure where she had gone or if she would come back. Who ever adopts him will get an email from me on the family tree between him and Tynami.

I want to officially put Danen on Hiatus. The site will be going into Wrapstuff so work can be done on it. People of late have not been posting, not even the people that have been with me since the beginning in 2003. I hope all of the people on the site will come back and play when I open her up again. It will be starting fresh, in the future about One Year (storyline time that is). In the Rainforest especially there will be major changes and I hope my main players will join me in this...
I will also be making it so people can sign up as reader members or players, there will be monthly challenges and themes and a yearly calender. I have put a lot of time and tears into this site. I love it almost as much as Elfquest and only want to make it better. Thank you.   With Love
