In the absence of a helpful answer ...

Evermeeters are boring elves punished in the afterlife by being forced to stand in an endless greeting line, shaking hands with each and every elf that ever lived.

That is absolutely awful Eric . . . and yet I smile. Living in the midwest I can also picture such Evermeeters wearling little blue vests with Smiley faces on them as well . . .

Elves.

I don't think Elves of Evermeet ever gave us a proper regional name for them -- not like C:EoM and how the elves there are called Cormanthyrans.

Still, I do like Eric's suggestion above .

Regardless, perhaps you should try pinging Ed or Elaine about this...

Yeah, when I first read this I scanned my copy of Elves of Evermeet, and at least a cursory glance failed to yeild a specific name for Evermeet elves. You know, the page in Forgotten Realms adventures that mentioned what various regions called themselves was one of the first pages that made me appreciate the little details of the setting.

Ed says:

Evermeeters are the elderly blue-vested folks who push a shopping
cart at you just inside the doors of every Elf-Mart, so you can carry off the elf maiden of your choice (and that have to frisk you if the Voice of Doom tells you, on the way out, that you forgot to pay for her).

:-)

And then Ed sent a serious answer:

They are "Everaer." This means "elves born on Evermeet who choose to
remain there" (not counting brief forays to the mainland), NOT "anyone who visits Evermeet from time to time." (So Florin and Dove weren't "Everaer.")

Hmmm... I'd like to buy an elf maiden or two!

Thanks so much to masters Boyd and Greenwood.

(I'm running an online campaign involving Evermeet and Evereska. The game may suffer an early death if I have the Evereskans meet the Evermeeters.)

Considering some of the other Realms adjectives, I figured it would be something like this... I just wasn't quite sure what it would be. I was thinking something more like "Everaen", myself.

Heh... I'd been thinking just a basic "Everan" or "Everar"... or even "Everite/Everyte".

I always just called them "citizen of Evermeet, resident of Evermeet, or True Elf." I just figured that it was like Washington DC. (Are they DC'ers? Washingtonians? Capitolers?) The news anchors always call them "Citizens in our Nation's Capitol" or "Residents of Washington D.C." Ed's answer however makes sense. Its very Greenwoodsian... Ed-ified... Greenwoodite... Edaer... ummm... maybe Greenwooderersianation...

...sigh...

very Realmsian
