History – The History of Denallifa
From time immemorial there have been hostilities between the Drow and the other elves (namely the Grey elves). Until recent history this hostility never resulted in war.
The Grey elves resided in great mountain side cities. The High elves lived in the plains, Valleys, forests and hills. The Qadi resided in the badlands and the mines, the Sylvan lived in the deep regions of the forest. They had little contact with the other elves unless they could avoid it. The Drow lived in caverns, tunnels and deep into the Underdark of the world. It was in this dark world below the surface that the Drow gave in to evil magic. With this power they built an army and returned en mass to reclaim the surface.
118 years ago the Drow lead a massive offensive against the Grey Elf castle town Formenya. For many years the Drow were held off. The Drow lost many of their men in battle and the females took up the leading roles in society. No one knows who she was, but an evil Drow sorceress tore a hole between this world and another. Then came into this world Spidrens, Kakkuu, Spithriku, Phisarazu, and other abominations of this kind. With these monsters on their side the Drow overtook Formenya and set their sights on Ondo Mindon. It was a far more formidable Grey elf city. The attack of the drow and their allies destroyed the plant life in the valley. To Ondo Mindon came elves from all around (including Droegil) this would be the last stand off of the surface elves against their blue enemies. Needing a greater power to breach the wall, the Drow Sorceress pulled through an amethyst dragon. Using dark magic she forced the dragon to attack the Grey elf citadel. After attacking the wall top defenses for a while the Dragon was able to regain her mind. She turned on the Drow and wiped out their forces. After making some preparations, the Amethyst dragon went to attack the Drow sorceress. Nothing is known of her fate except she did not return.

History – The History of Denaldreconus
From time immemorial there have been conflicts between the Dragons (namely the Chromatics and the Metallics).This constant conflict has always stressed the ecosystem, but it had always survived. The Chromatics arranged with the Metallics to make a peace treaty. In this treaty they bared out right attacks and conflicts. The primary Chromatics used the time of the treaty’s writing to obliterate all plant and animal life from the Metallic’s holdings. They did not know it then, but at that point they doomed their world to death. The Metallics did not retaliate because by the time they knew what had happened the treaty had been signed, and the Gold dragon was not willing to break it. So in this decaying world, the species did what they had to do to survive. Many beings went to a diet of mushrooms and other subterranean plants to survive. Dragon adapted to eating stones for nutreance. In a small out of the way corner of the world the Spidren were attempting to make it off of the world. With the help of extra planetary magic they opened a hole between their world and another. They passed through the portal and abandoned Denaldreconus. News of this transportation traveled quickly. Most everyone wished to leave the world. Many looked to find the means that the Spidron used to escape but no answer was found. Eventually a knowledgeable wizard determined that the only way to cross over was to have another force on the other side pulling you. Aloof to all this was an Amythist dragon. She had recently lost her mate and was in the woes of sorrow. Suddenly, there pulled on her this power from the other world. She attempted to resist it but soon gave in. She entered the other world. With this pulling,. the hole between the two worlds became greater, and the mesh that separated them was lessened. With enough power any being could force its way into the other world. Whole towns at a time pushed their way through.
