I've recently become very interested in ancient Aryvandaar and its ruling house, House Vyshaan. I've been interested in them for awhile, but now it's really been fired up.

So far, I've been reading up on their lore in Cormanthyr: Empire of Elves and Lost Empires of Faerun. That's about as much information as I've been able to unearth. If anyone else has any lore to share (especially in the fiction books; I DO have The Last Mythal, thankyouverymuch :P) I'd be very much pleased.

Also, for those fans of Aryvandaar and House Vyshaan, just drop by to say hi and goo and gah over ouor beloved Gold Elves!

Check this out

"These things also I have observed: that knowledge of our world is
to be nurtured like a precious flower, for it is the most precious
thing we have. Wherefore guard the word written and heed
words unwritten and set them down ere they fade . . . Learn
then, well, the arts of reading, writing, and listening true, and they
will lead you to the greatest art of all: understanding."

Wow, that's a lot of work there.

There will be a small bit of ancient elf lore gleaned in SHADOWBANE: EYE OF JUSTICE, specifically about a certain sun elf house that gets up to naughty things with demons. I'm not sure it'll be relevant to what you're doing, but hey.

Cheers

Love reading about the vyshaan, of course you probably figured that out from the username.
