Defense of the Empire of Henniswyyr
The Heartland Elves
The Elves of the Heartland are incredibly studious people, most devoting their lives to the study of magic and the creatures of the world. There are many that choose instead to study alchemy, and they are responsible for the many varieties of poisons and baits that are used for luring and trapping monsters. They are also the source of the potions and salves used by most of the healers throughout Henniswyyr. The Alchemists of the Heartland are known to give a high price for rare herbs and samples of poisons from special creatures.
However the keepers of the Ancestral Library are also known to accept ancient tomes found in ruins and sealed vaults. They pay a fee for any item of questioned origin, and especially of obvious magical properties, but will pay a higher price to those who wait for the item to be researched or the tome translated.
