An Tuath, also known as the Silver Kingdom, is an eladrin kingdom within Arianna Forest. The capital city is Ionad Túr. It is the last of the eladrin kingdoms to be created in Nora.

The kingdom is shattered and is in danger of invasion by the trolls of Trollebotten.

History


The silver eladrin are the descendants of those who battled the front lines of the drow elves.

The Nightwar

A major coup/regime change happened 800 years after their arrival. This sparked a 200 year civil war separating the Shadras and Mabhsaol regions culturally forever.

Ten swords of immense power were crafted for use by the royal family.

Drow Invasion

Sudden attack by the drow 4,000 years later.

The Time of Falling Leaves

see Time of Falling Leaves

The madness of the Erlking brings down Siobadh Tur. The city waits for redemption for nearly twenty years before a failed coup drives in the final nail. Ionad Tur is renamed the capital city of An Tuath and the deathless, its leaders.

The most dense part of the forest. Light rarely penetrates through the canopy. This is also where the most dangerous creatures of the forest dwell.

Trees in this area seem to "chime".

Rituals

Coronation of the Silver King

The Silver King, or Ri Airgid, wears a flowing silver cloak and a large mithral shield as a symbol of office. The coronation ritual is for the heir to stand outside the thresh-hold to the royal palace naked. Then servants would dress him is his cloak and shield and he would enter the palace where the clan lords would swear their allegiance. The new king then reads a lengthy arcane rite binding him to his regalia and the palace. He is then presented with the crown by the Baelnorns and all in attendance hail to his glory.

This is usually followed by a feast or other celebration of the new king's design.
