    I`ve been working on an Oriental Adventures BR campaign and I`ve got most
    of my human races. I`m going with a few non-human races as well. Not
    those in the OA text, but a humanoid lizard race and a humanoid race kind
    of like the thri-kreen. I`ve also been considering the traditional D&D/BR
    races. OA has it`s own version of dwarves, and it seems to me that
    halflings should exist in a BR-OA campaign since they come through the
    Shadow World, but what about elves? Should there be non-Cerilian
    elves? If so, what should they be like? Anyone have thoughts on this?

    I had some ideas about Thaele, the continet north of Cerilia and Aduria,
    but I had no time to work on it. Somone started working on Thaele
    expansion, so I gave him my ideas, and never heard from him again. I
    hope he has the time to finish the expansion in future.

    My idea is that part of Elves fled Cerilia when humans came, and went
    farther north, to Thaele, where they met new races, some hostile, some
    friendly(good spot to insert some cliché races like Orcs and Gnomes).

    Once there, the Elves reestablished their great Empire, leaving the
    other races alone and defending against aggressors when necessary.
    However, the day came when Thaele Elves, keeping watchful eyes on
    Cerilia, realized that Humans are bound to try to settle Thaele sooner
    or later. So, they gathered the Council of highest-ranking nobles,
    greatest warlords and wizards, to decide what to do.

    Unspeakable happened on the council. The Elves nearly started fighting
    each other, two factions arguing wether it is better to offer friendship
    or war to Humans. When it was clear that friendly faction is overvoting
    the aggressive one, they left the hall in protest, and started the first
    civil war in the history of Elven Empire. After years of warfare, the
    Elves lost a lot of territory to other races, and the factions were
    separated from each other, on to the west and one to the east. However,
    the other races soon learned of Humans from their Elven enemies and
    allies.

    As the time passed, two Elven kingdoms gained their supporters and
    allies among the native races of Thaele, forming to great blocks of
    power, ready for another bloody war.
