The Freeholders stand as a bonded force of Elven, Centaur, Troll and Faerie eco-warriors armed with the powers of nature, the elements, and the fury of the storm unleashed. By the will of the Spirit of Tezla and led by Prophet-priest Tremelen, they will triumph over all that stand before them.
Throughout the long history of the races loyal to the Elemental cause, never before has the Trolls, Elves, Centaurs and Faeries suffered such a time of darkness. With the forces of the Dark Crusade setting up siege camp outside the Elemental castle of Roanne Valle, many outsiders believe it is only a matter of time before the Necromancers deliver the final blow to the defenders of the Land.
For more than a hundred and fifty years, the warriors, mages, priests and priestesses of the Elemental League stood devoted to protecting the Land from those who would pollute or destroy it. However, with the massive invasion of the Elemental homeland in 434 Tz, and the hasty recall of all the Forest Elves back to the capitol castle of Roanne Valle, there is a great deal of dissent in the Elemental ranks. While the Forest Elves, loyal to the Spirit of Tezla and devoted to his every command, quickly marched back to serve the wishes of the Circle of Nine, many of the non-elven races took great offense at these actions. For the Forest Elves to retreat and hide within a stone coffin during a time when the forests of the Wylden are filled with torch-wielding invaders is viewed as an act of treachery by Centaurs, Trolls, and Faeries of the Wylden. But as many Forest Elves believe that the Spirit of Tezla ordered the castle built more than a hundred and fifty years ago to weather this very attack, there is little dissent within the Elemental capitol of Roanne Valle. Every day, even when faced with the seemingly endless tide of the Crusader siege armies setting up camp outside the main walls, many of the defenders of Roanne Valle are bolstered by a growing sense of faith that Tezla will allow them to persevere through the destruction and chaos that will arise in the months to come.
Provided that the Elementals survive this great attack, they will re-establish their place as the defenders of the Land, and fight any force that would pollute, destroy, or use the Land selfishly for their own means. By calling upon the forces of nature, the druids and priestesses of the Elemental Freeholds will stand against all odds. They still have an unknown number of Dragons under their control, and are likely waiting for the right time to unleash the fury of flame and claw against an evil enemy that needs to be purged from the Land without mercy.
