We are a group focused on recognized Elven culture. We seek to enjoy the time with our people in social settings, to educate on a variety of subjects including but not limited to social and courtly etiquette, history and lore, and to share this knowledge with all races.

History

The Alliance of High Elven Society was originally founded by four elves: Nihrvanah, Ayvah, and Fealoke of House Vaalor and Silima of House Illistim. The premise was simple: offer a venue for fellowship amongst the Elves while simultaneously creating a way to educate the other races on Elven culture and lore. At its inset, membership was limited exclusively to full blooded Elves only as agreed upon by all the founding members, with exceptions granted to Sylvankind or half-Elves in a case by case manner.

With the Alliance's recent promotion to a distinguished organization, Nihrvanah updated the membership requirements to fully include Sylvankind and half-Elves for eligibility.
