Bonded Elven Kingdoms
The very first, and to this date the most powerful of the known space powers (although the Dwarves would argue that…). Today they face a threat of such magnitude which has not been seen for ages. Not since the Age of the Plague have their fleets been decimated in such numbers, has so many of their worlds been lost, nor has their realm of influence been so steadily pushed back. Indeed a dark time has come upon them, and this time their elders do not see a self-destructive outcome in their enemy’s strands of possibilities.
In defiance of a fate which many claim a tragic certainty, the Bonded Kingdoms took it upon themselves to gather the various races, even their darkest of kin, to find safety in numbers against the encroaching threat. They convinced the Dwarves to once again join as allies with them, they gathered willing members of the Minor Factions, and even convinced a handful of Vampire Counts to see the Elves’ reason. With this alliance formed the various powers worked together to defend each others’ realms and swore to always come to aid of their neighbor’s fleets. This slowed the progress of the Illithids greatly, but this was not the main goal!
Within the safety of a little known sphere, on an ancient and dying world, the races began work on what could be their last hope. With the Elves leading the charge the last of the planet’s lifeforce was channeled into the creation of the Illithid Uath, our greatest of hopes.
