The Southern Elves
The elves are all dark skinned and tattooed. They live in small villages and mountain cities. In the mountains they build cites like the big one in the game of thrown world where mother of dragons is now.
Powerful oracles (mostly women) foresee the gods whims and declare a high priest to be the next god emperor (pharos). The farther south you go the weirder it gets. The are the biggest most powerful force in the world.
They practice human sacrifice (but never elven) they have recently ( about 80 years) been on the war path. They send forces north with the powerful navy to begin the conquest of the contantan you live on. The word is that they are recalling every ship they can to begin a full scale invasion soon.
They use slings, those weird spear throwers, kopeshes and long daggers with long chains with curved blades on the end. They are based on the Ebberon Xendrick drow but mixed with Egypt
