Created by the Dragon Priests, this humanoid race is known mostly for serving Sorrow in the war where he attempted to establish his Empire and harness the power of the Standing Stones.

Appearance

Elpalzi are a humanoid race. They speak a language of the same name and most were fluent in Common. In a crowd, they would stand out due to the short, coarse fur that covers their bodies and the way that their hair seemed to grow out of their face in a peculiar fashion. Generally they wore their hair pulled back away from their faces. Their body fur has markings similar to domestic dogs; spots or patches.

History and Current Whereabouts

During the early conflicts where the Dragon Priestess Dzree was attempting to make her own Empire starting with the city of Riverhaven, one Lord Sorrow offered his service to the woman. Eventually, the Dragon Priest beliefs were too much for him to agree to, and he left Dzree's service on amicable terms. In thanks for his service, Dzree gifted to him a warrior race that her people had created through magics unknown. These were the Elpalzi, and along with Sorrow disappeared into obscurity shortly after leaving Dzree's service.

They resurfaced along with the Dark Lord when Sorrow began his quest to raise his own empire many years later in what is known as the Sorrow War. Much smarter and more powerful than the low-intelligence S'lai, they were the vanguard of many of Sorrow's attacks on the mainland cities. For the time of the war they stayed with him in Sorrow's Reach (see RanikMap9b). After Sorrow's demise, Parnore led the Elpalzi back to their homeland. According to him, this was a land north of Sorrow's Reach, on the other side of the mountains.

There they remain to this day, with one exception. The Elpalzi Commander Shartug is still at large.

Renegades

In recent years, a splinter group of Elpalzi under Alret have begun attacks on the Crossing, including taking Court Scribe Iazen captive.

The Elpalzi renegades typically have two types of invading troops, melee and ranged. The ranged attackers are typically more challenging due to their missile attacks. This list is an approximate comparison of their combat skill from weakest to strongest.
