When it comes to the Latari Elves in Runewars, they don’t need a Lorax to speak of the trees. The trees are perfectly capable of expressing themselves on their own. Which means woe to those that would try and do harm to them or those that protect them. They are the Aymhelin Scions, and theyR...

Armies are big, unwieldy sorts of things. They don’t exactly turn on a dime, either, so you’d better know where you’re headed and what’s coming up by sending out scouting parties. The last thing you want is for your entire army to be surprised by what’s ahead and getting...
