Poll Question:
If your favourite one hasn't been listed, just describe it and why you like it.

My favourite is Aryvandaar. Something about this ancient empire just fascinates me. I'm so hungry for information about it, too. I really love how it was a kingdom of Gold Elves who thought that it was their divine right to rule all of the Elves of Faerun (and they believed were doing good).

I've been toying with the idea of starting a "Returned Aryvandaar" thread about a possible reconstruction of the ancient empire (plus Siluvanede).

I really do wish there was a sourcebook series on the First Flowering like there was with the whole Arcane Age series, like the books on ancient Cormanthyr.

Choices:

Aryvandaar
Siluvanede
Shantel Othrier
Miyeritar
Ilythiir
Eaerlann
Cormanthyr
Synnoria
Aryselmalyr
Syorpiir
Illefarn
Keltormir

Illefarn, mostly because of what I read about the ancient realm in Lost Empires. It's one of only few fallen elven realms that I'd consider running a campaign through.

illfern and cormanthyr


wish the poll was multiple choice

why is being a wizard like being a drow? both are likely to find a dagger in the back from a rival or one looking to further his own goals, fame and power

Aryvandaar because what's not to love about an empire of xenophobic elves ruled by Godwin's Law... and where the police force is essentially the Eldreth Veluuthra.

Cheers

I love Illythiir, mostly due to the awesome unofficial sourcebook on DA about it...
