Prifddinas' history, or The Creation of Prifddinas, describes some of how Prifddinas was founded and the very origin of the elven race. Information about Seren, the goddess of the elves, is also available. It can be found in the bookshelves of Lletya and in the Grand Library in Prifddinas.

Transcript[edit | edit source]

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Prifddinas' history.

It is told that the first elves to come through the World Gate found a world full of beautiful woodlands and terrible beasts.

It was Seren who told the eight clans that if they were to survive in this hostile environment, they must form a single community for mutual protection.

Seren proceeded to showed them all to a clearing in the forest, where she had already created the Tower of Voices, a place for all elven kind to congregate and the future home of the Assembly of Elders.

Over the following days, Seren imparted her idea for a new city, a city where all elves would have access to hear her words, a city where all elves would live in peace, a living city made of the very same crystal that she herself was comprised.

It was decided that the city should be set out in an octagon. Each of the eight clans would have their own segment of the city.

Each segment would be edged on one side by a city wall with its opposing corner at the city center, where the Tower of Voices was located.

This would give each of the clans equal access to hear the words of Seren and equal responsibility for the city's protection in the case of a siege.

Seren then provided one special seed for every clan, telling them that each seed should be planted in the center of each clan's segment of the city.

The eight clans did this, and found that the seeds grew into great towers. Before long, there were nine crystal towers in the clearing.

And so, the city of Prifddinas was born.
