    Hey all, :)

    a question to the Elf specialists here.

    I believe, there's some poem about Corellon and Eilistraee. It's linked to the banishment of the latter. In the end there is the phrase "May your path be green and golden"

    Does anyone know, where i can find that poem in full length?


    Dude!?! This is a glossary thread... Perhaps you would get more traction if you started a thread in one of the general subforums.



    First off, i'm not a dude, second i'm new herem so a bit more patience, please. Third, please be a bit more polite to a lady...


    Righteous lady dude!!! Or would you prefer "dudette"?

    I think you might be a little bit sensitive there dude. I gave you some solid advice (seeing as you're new here), didn't try to be mean, and had hoped I had shown genuine confusion with the emoji. Clearly, that didn't help you not to have your jimmies rustled.

    Have a nice day dude and I hope you find your poem.
