The ELVES are an ancient race, and many of them live to be several hundreds of years old. This is exactly why they chose to make the ancient trees at the heart of ARAKON FOREST their home. During the time of the MANA REPLENISHMENT CYCLE, ARAKON VILLAGE is easy to find, due to the lack of MANA in the air. However, most of the time, the MANA is so thick, ARAKON VILLAGE is impossible to locate. This is why many people believe the ELVEN VILLAGE is a mythological legend. The ELVES aren't particularly hospitable to outsiders, either.
