This is the book that was given to me by Mistress Jaeta H'arn of the Order of Nektulos. She says this book is from long before the Cataclysm and is one of the first books all Teir`Dal children read
The Teir`Dal were once the rulers of the entire surface and beyond of Norrath. We ruled all the lands and all the peoples contained within them. Even the trees bowed to us. But, we were betrayed and left to suffer.
The evil, vile Koada`Dal and their cousins the Feir`Dal, in their weakness, called upon their frail and cowardly Gods. They banded together and directly attacked us. They broke all traditions of the Gods and came for us because they knew they could not overcome The Prince of Hate.
So good was the Gods' cover up of their actions that the Father never took action to aid us directly...but oh did he punish them. They were all imprisoned in his plane and made to suffer for eternity. The Father again did not aid us, but instead, to strengthen, us we were given the responsibility of punishing those who dared threaten us!
Now we hunt those elves and their allies. Vengeance will be ours and we will reclaim the lands that are rightfully ours! For the Prince of Hate we will fight! For our honor we will fight! Never will we stop in our pursuit! Take arms young warrior and fight the battle for your ancestors and all Teir`Dal.
