Hi there,

I know that when you are talking about the races eg humans, elves, dwarves, Brownies etc, only Brownies get capitalised.

What about things like Artyrhón elves? or Blessed Sea Elves?

Does the Elves in Blessed Sea Elves get capitalised, because it is part of that title, or it is Blessed Sea elves? I think that first one looks better to me ... but not sure if that is consistent with what else is done throughout the site.

Many thanks

Dek

Maybe it's not consistently used, but it should be "Blessed Sea Elves", simply because when used as a proper name this is the way to write it. All three parts of the tribe name make that proper name, so all three should be capitalised.
