The Nemesis Campaign
Sylvan, both the name of the forest that is the homeland of the elves of Ouranos and the city-sized temple complex within it, is one of the oldest settlements in Ouranos. The Sylvan forests, which once extended into the Northern Frontier, now sits within the mouth of the Spine of Ouranos.
Sylvan, Temple of the Dead-
Sylvan is a city-sized temple and home to the largest population of elves (both alive and dead). Thousands of elves live in the outskirts of the city, while the dead are housed in a vast mausoleum complex in the heart of Sylvan. The gathering of deceased elves, who far outnumber the living in Sylvan, created the god Sylvia some time before the 2nd Orc Purge. Named after the elven settlement, Sylvia became self-aware just before the resurgence of Man, and has since become the patron goddess of the elves.
