The Order of the Dancing Goat
The Eldreth Veluuthra is a secret group of fanatical elf supremacists who have vowed to remove the human (and half-elf) scourge from the face of Faerûn. Having seen how humans treat each other, elves, and the plants and animals of the world, these extremist elves see no other way to preserve their chosen land than to commit genocide. To this end, they gather in small cells and make deadly ambushes on human settlements, scouts, and other folks who stray too near elven territory. Though their attacks have done little so far to deter human expansion, the Eldreth Veluuthra (the name means “Victorious Blade of the People” in Elven) are undaunted. Its members operate throughout Faerûn, particularly in ancient elf homelands as well as in those forests largely abandoned during the Elven Retreat, including Ardeep, the Border Forest, the Chondalwood, Cormanthor, the High Forest, the Moonwood, the Neverwinter Woods, and the Winterwood. Wherever human civilization threatens elf interests, the Eldreth Veluuthra works to slow or halt human encroachment—by any means necessary. Members include Laucien Ardulith, Taeghen Sin’dorei, and Respen Nailo.
