Keeping the peace
Elven-Meet is a village deep in the heart of a primordial Forest. The village is simplistic with no advanced magic or technology. The reason for this is that the woods are owned by Sylvan (wood elves) who abhor modern advancements. No airship is allowed to fly over the vast forest which is bad for The Kingdom of the Dragon who lie just to the north. As such they have to travel through the forest. For this reason Elven-Meet was founded.
The Villages founders struck a deal with the Sylvan to allow them to live in the forest under the protection of the Sylvan, in return the Sylvan ask only they live simpler lives.
