Book Text:

High Elves are often seen
as snooty and aloof by
other races. They are also
perceived as beautiful and
strong-willed. These
volumes explore the truth
of these perceptions, which
appear to have remained
constant throughout the
ages. The cities, art,
weapons, armor and even the
animals they domesticate
share this same aloof
beauty. These books
examine that beauty along
with the underlying
strength that is seen in
all facets of Koada'Dal
life, but focuses primarily
on the symbols, styles and
colors that represent them.
Specifically, it examines
the use of symbols and
insignia on armor. The



author finds these symbols
in all forms of
architecture, art and
religious symbols,
including sketches and
descriptions of things
thought long lost to time.

This volume focuses on the
most ancient symbols of
Koada'Dal society. It
describes or has sketches
of symbols that pre-date
the destruction of the
Eldarr Forest, symbols
thought long forgotten. It
unfurls ancient battle
standards, reproduces
military insignia and
describes murals from long
destroyed churches. As you
read through this volume
you are reminded of the
power of the past, of the



legends that built your
society. You feel them
watching over you and
accepting who you are.
These images give you
strength and confidence in
yourself and your people.

Among the pages of
discussion about these
symbols is a pattern. This
pattern combines ancient
symbols with the symbols
discussed in earlier
volumes to produce a symbol
that holds all of the
history of the High Elves.
You know that you will be
able to reproduce this
pattern many times before
the book becomes worn and
you must replace it.

To create a pattern for



tailoring armor templates
based on these patterns you
will need this book, a
large bottle of ink, a roll
of superb vellum, a quill
and a compacted backpack to
hold the patterns you will
make. You'll also need a
book binding to do the
work.
