AIS - The Cyre Job
The ancestral homeland of Eberron’s elves, Aerenal is a realm that is alien to most of Khorvaire’s inhabitants. Thick jungles and exotic flora cast deep shadows across the land, shrouding a society steeped in a fascination with death. Aerenal is open to travelers and traders, although the Aereni rarely offer a warm welcome to foreigners.
The Undying Court, a council of religious and noble leaders from prior generations, rules the elves of Aerenal. Death fascinates the Aereni, and it informs their fashions and arts; they also have a propensity for the study of necromantic and planar magic. Some Aereni even undergo alchemical processes and mystic rites in order to appear dead. Most elves of Aerenal are members of vast extended families, called lines, that have ties to counselors of the Undying Court.
The Tairnadal elves of Aerenal’s northern plains have a warrior culture similar to that of the Valenar elves. Tairnadal family divisions are called warclans, and they are less devoted to the Undying Court than are other Aereni.
