The Ballad of the Melting King
Xoliads or The Forgotten Ones
The oldest race of humanoid beings in Edelstein next to the Dwarves, apparently the story is they came to Edelstein from a far away land, years away from there home. They had there own language, which to speak was very easy but there writing was a completely different system of symbols and marks. It is still the most complicated language to understand in the world.
These beings haven’t been seen for tens of thousands of years, and mysteriously vanished from Edelstein, few remained, any more that may exist are now rumors or legends. Many people that are not mages, historians, or nobles, do not even know they existed because of the severe lack of education in Edelstein.
They are described as being very skinny, grey skinned beings with Dark hair, huge pointy ears pointed straight up, unlike elves which are pointed to the back of there heads, and they have big black eyes with no sclera visible. They looked very Alien and have been known to use much greater magic naturally then other races, however they were the weakest physically and did not engage in physical confrontations.
Many have said this race was the progenitors of the elven race, and that may be true, but there is no evidence other than there similarities.
Many tombs, ruins, and relics still exist of them, they are very valuable to historians.
They were also known to be far more advanced in terms of magical devices then even the Elves, but were far more secretive.
There are a lot of people who do not believe they existed in the first place, and that they were just another tribe of Elves.
People call them “Xoliads” because of there interest in something called “Xol” in there writings, however there true name is unknown.
