Starfolk, Unosis, Starians.

A hundred thousand years ago, before the coming of the Phoenix wars, and after man had attained knowledge, it is known that strange rocks fell from the heavens.

It was during such a time that these shards fell upon the forest that was home to the elves and their lost realm of Terion. When the elves went to investigate they found, the strange rock deep within the earth. They could not get close due to the heat the strange matter gave off.

So the elves waited until the matter cooled, when they went back, they saw strange red crystals embedded within. They were in the shape of eggs, and red in hue. The elves gathered the rock and the eggs and brought what they found to their kingdom. It was several months later, that the elves first witnessed the eggs hatch and strange gray-blue creatures come forth.

     This elven nation is called Floral'lanthus the elven name for Twilight, it seems that the elven nation is at the peek of it civilization.  The elves of the world retreated to live in peace in harmony in the great elven wood.  Through great magic, and the blessing of the gods, a mist of grey white encircled their lands, barring entry to those who the elves command, or proclaimed them as elf friend, or Eliath Felween.  
It is this magic, and the seemingly disappearance of the Elves from the world, that the mention of twilight arose.  
The famous Explore, Ablethan Swiftluck but it best,  
'It will be a sad day in deed when the world weeps for the elves, the twilight of these fine folk, are the twilight of man, dwarf, and tooks .'  

Of the ten-elven clans that once hailed from Floral'lanthus, only two remain.  House Lunarim, and House Solarim.  Each clan has more than a thousand members, and continue to branch off into smaller houses.   Of the other eight, there has been brief documentation.  Many elves headed southwest towards the Shattered Sea, some near what has become known as the Frontier.
Many Florian elves traveled west as well, setting up communities in what is now known as the kingdom of Varanguard, as well as a small community in the Frontier.  They headed south as well aboard winged ships, along with but nothing more is known of them, supposedly heading further south pass the reaches of the Coradan, and toward the Glacier Sea.
As a society the elves are beings of nature, and thus are tightly bonded with the preservation of the their lives and ways.  Most records of their communal life have been lost, but what is known shows the elves as a race to have a great bonding to nature, than all of races of Chalice.

These Gnomes are cousins of the Kragians, and expert builders.  During the time of the epoch of spells, these dwarves in the search of knowledge fell in with the sorcerers of Kar'Mageus.  

       Working along with the sorcerers, the gnomes took to the casting of magic, and invention.  These Gnomes became master craftsmen crafting many magical items during the war of spell against the great kingdoms of magic.  When the Phoenix Empire Hysoril fell in a climatic explosion, the dwarves went into hiding.  
For many years Kragian dwarves had a disdain for their cousins. During the Divine fall, when a god death weapons wounded their god Krag, it was Frohelm that aided them, until their god recovered his strength.

Machine Smithing, the secrete skill of creating constructs, and automatons, was created long ago by the sorcerers of Kar'Mageus, in their battle with flying mages of Hysoril the Phoenix Empire.  Even though few practice the skill due to the fact most dwarves find it distasteful, a select few dwarves have continued the legacy.

Quote :
Abyssal Elves: Balsair, Maliath Felor:
Their dark reddish skin as well as their facial tattoos that resemble tiger markings can be recognize by any upon Aerbor.  
Bane Elves are unique, and the markings upon their flesh bear this fact out.  The Abyssal Elves where once kin to the Skyrasidien elves , but the great rift sundered that relationship when they joined with the human mages of Hysoril.  
It was during the Epoch of the Phoenix and the Great War between empires that the Abyssal elves turned on their cousins, capturing many Dawn Elves,  and giving them into the hands of their tormentors, Daemon princes from the lower hells. This betrayal was so great, the Dawn elves gathered arms and went forth, bringing blade and death to their kin.  Few Abyssal Elves escaped with their master the daemons, but those that have, now swore a blood oath against their cousins.  
Abyssal elves may stand at least six feet tall, and are known for their strong but compact frames.  They are expert swordsmen, and many higher themselves out as mercenaries.  Those Abyssal elves that worship gods, worship the evil serpent queen Kali-Ka, and her consort Talronan the ill fated.
In terms of magic they are innate masters of the art.  They learn early the wonders of the magic, and the high potential of casting it.  They gain a +4 to all saving throws.
Abyssal elf also, can summon a familiar and are known to do so early on in their lives.
They have the ability to create an elemental of blood, and will usually carry a cask of such from a prior victim.  The elemental resembles a fairy that consists of coagulated blood.
Abyssal elf can turn magic, back at his or her attackers, by rolling a percentage of 40% should she roll under the spell rebounds back towards it's source, attack roll not needed.  The person that cast the spell then must make a save against his own spell.
They are suited, to many pursuits, and are as gifted in making enhanced limbs much like the Frohelmian dwarves.  Most elves consider this blasphemy, but many Abyssal elves disagree, and are ready to replace a limb if need be.  Like all elves they have a hate for iron thus there weapons are fashioned out of Abyssal Steel.  A dark alloy named such due to its ebony color.  When merged with Silvaril, Abyssal steel radiates with a purple light and gains a +1 bonus.  It is known that no good aligned person can touch it and cause 2d6 points of damage to any good aligned characters.

Fey,Dael Felween
Lost in the ancient record of Elfdom, is spoken of a race of elves unlike any ever seen in upon the known world.  It is said, while Nieblung Krag, smithied the first of the races, that Talronan tricked the mighty forger.  
As Krag worked he grew tired, and asked the god to fetch him water.  To Krags folly he could not know the evil that would be worked that day.  Talronan tricked the mighty smith with a drought of water that held a potion of sleep.  While Nieblung Krag slept, a Talronan along with his daughter Daelvoth stole several of the Elves.  
As a gift Talronan, allowed his daughter the Queen of night and shadow, to give them life.  

Thus the Dael as they were once known as awoke to the light of the sun for the first time.  As their eyes fell upon the radiating orb, they cried out in pain, and scampered for the nearest shelter deep beneath the earth escaping the suns rays.  Daelvoth fumed, why had this happened?  As she gazed upon the other elves that awakened to the skies above, she saw the other creations of the gods revel in the light.  Daelvoth would never guess that the elves Talronan captured were incomplete, and would suffer from the light above, and dwell in the dark below.  

The tale of the Dael is a tale of woe and suffering.  In hate of the other races, they fought many battles against them, and gained the name Dael Maliath Felween, meaning dark enemy of the elves.  The Dael would twist it and renaming themselves the Fey.

In Anem 1112, the Heroes of time accidently, returned the Dhrow, to common day Chalice, and the Epoch of Discovery 1445.  
Doing battle in the past before the Dawn War against a large colony, of Fey , the Temporal Chronometer, engulfed both the heroes and the whole society of Fey returning them to  present times.  
As of the Epoch of Discovery, the Fey have kept a low-key approach seldom appearing above chalice.   They are still acquainting themselves to the present, and are readying themselves for the day when they will show their might.  The Fey have all the abilities written down in the player's handbook.

Quote :
The Heralds are the gods power  upon the world.  After the climax of Divine Fall the gods were sealed upon their own planes of existence.  Fearing that their avatars would be destroyed and locked from Chalice, they sought out individuals to become vassals to their beliefs, and agendas.  Thus the Heralds where created.  
The gods made contracts with mortal for their services, thus the god would still have a voice upon the prime material plane.  There can only be one Heralds to any one god at one time, due to the immense power he or she possesses.  Those who chose to serve their god or goddess in this way, serve as vassals to their deity's power and agenda.  The Heralds can also pursue her own life, since he or she is not an avatar of said god.  Those who have made this agreement have gained great bonuses, such as long life, increased abilities, and power.  Each Aeon has a hidden weakness, and if he or she is killed, then the god they served will offer the same deal to another.
Heralds during  the time of the Epoch of Discovery are quite powerful and are the messengers, and agents of the gods.  Yet each Heralds has his or her agenda.   Heralds can only be of tenth level class or higher; most deities will not seek anyone of lower power or stature.  Heralds gain many benefits from their alliance with their Herald.  Heralds are blessed with long life, can teleport anywhere twice a day with a mere thought.  They gain a +2 benefit to all their primary stats such as strength etc. Any weapon in their possession gains a +4 enchantment.  Magical aura cancels all enchantment spells such as charm, and command.  
Heralds can also cast cure moderate wounds once per day.  It is said the only thing that can kill a Herald permanently is Iron wrought weapon, of +3 or higher.  Steel will not work because it is not true iron but a composite.

+4 divine magic bonus to all weapons and items
Limitations: (Iron death) Heralds can be killed with a Iron wrought weapon of +3 weapon or higher.
