OK, I have been working on these for so long I guess its probably time I start perfecting them and getting them up. They're kinda may way of pulling parts of Santharian History together. Intended them as a sort Santharian version of Bede's History of the British Peoples. I'm still researching style and trying to decide how Elves would address such a document (any suggestions very very welcome!) but I'm at least ready to give you this overview.

The Quealhoirhim Tomes

The Quealhoirhim tomes, housed in Elving, are one of those extremely odd documents that history turns up every so often. An ancient script, written about 400 b.S, though possibly compiled over hundreds of years (one page is thought by the Elves to be over 8000 years old) it is part description and census of the Santharian world at that time, part detailed history, part literature and poetry and part lore and myth though its descriptions of events prior to and during the First Santharian war are considered to be some of the most accurate existing descriptions.

The title is possibly a misnomer, the tomes may well not have been written by the Quealhoirhim at all. Some believe that it is one of the few surviving documents from the great Allenrhim Library that house the Odosia, the everlasting books. Thus, it may well be Allenrhim in origin. It was possibly a gift to the Quealhoirhim in freindship, or it may be a later amalgamation of many rescued documents from all over Santharia. Certainly one chapter concerns Ylfferhim propesy, which suggests that many books authored by many different elven tribes have been compiled into this two volume work. Though, by whom and when is still hotly debated. Certainly parts have been very badly damaged, for exaple several important pages reguarding the origins of Mengoth's Blood have been written over with details of a possible tactical assult on the Fores, perhaps that during SW3. The Elven script underneath is sadly barely legible, though the overlying human penned details are facinating in their own right.

The Tomes were copied by Quealhoirhim Scholars in Elving into a more legible and more sturdily bound volume which was later given as a gift to King Santhros by the elves as a mark of continued friendship. This second volume is now housed in New Santhala, and rarely viewed, except by those most most esteemed Historian who are given express permission from the highes levels in the establishment.
