Noted Lore: - Following a terrible earthquake, a small group of elves was washed out to sea. Adrift on the ruins of their former homes, they called out to the gods for help. Their cry was answered, as a great beam of light shone down from the stars and transformed the survivors of the catastrophe. Gifted with a newfound intelligence, they used the remains to build a great ship, and sailed to land on the shores of an unfamiliar land. Upon their arrival, Herisil descended from the heavens, a brilliant being of pure light, and declared his support for the fledgling race. As long as they called upon his name, he would reward them with designs, inspiration, and imagination.
Conventional lore: - The story of Herisil is considered to be one of the most accurate of all origin stories, as the star elves are known for keeping meticulous and duplicated records. To this day, artists and scientists across the world travel to his altars to receive inspiration.
