Fables of Ellorien
The Liaathan Collective
The Liaathan Collective is made up of 4 major cities with a shared heritage and goals, named for Liaatha, the first pixie to appear in Ellorien. These cities formed an alliance before the great war in order to preserve their societies. The people of the Liaathan Collective settled the great forest millennia ago around the mysterious, magical Lake Adoness. This mystical lake seems to be the source of a primal magic that sustains the lush forest. It is said that the lake is home to The Blue Fairy, often called the lady of the lake, who sometimes appears to lone travelers and grants their wishes. The races who make up the collective chose The Blue Fairy as their patron as they believe she is truly Liaatha.
No one person is in charge of the Collective, instead the ruler of each city forms the Liaathan Council which works to serve the good of all. As the races who make up the collective live very long lives, most of the members of the council have held their seats since its inception. The Council does not issue laws or control a central military, instead they work to ensure that all 4 cities work together and contribute to the common good.
