Tor Yvresse is a metropolis of Ulthuan as beautiful and grand as any of the Elven cities of old. Even to the present day it shines like a beacon against the dark rock of the landscape and the green shawl of forest draping over the mountains behind it. Sadly, its glory days are long past. Once considered the jewel of Ulthuan, many of the old mansions are uninhabited, and the great amphitheatres are silent and empty. The walls of the city are mighty and deep, but there are never enough warriors to man them, and many wonder if the city could withstand another serious invasion.
It is in this city where Eltharion the Grim rules, one of the greatest heroes of the High Elves. He was chosen as Guardian of Tor Yvresse after defeating the horde of Grom the Paunch, and although he is a strict and severe governor, the people of the city appreciate its guardian.
