This commission is part of a series for a D&D 5th edition game set entitled Fading Embers: A Frozen Age created by Valiant Fox Gaming. Click the button below to learn more about the project and all the artists working to bring Nyth to life.

Originally domesticated by northern elves in an age before The Great Frost, aelfdier are a type of sylvan elk that flourished as the world froze around them.  Their hides come in a variety of colors and patterns, but most are shades of white and grey.  All aelfdier have pale silver antlers stretching treelike from their heads, with extremely sharp edges.  Aelfdier herds can be found almost anywhere in Nyth but Shalanar, Talos, and Bacau Gara.  They are especially numerous north of the Covasna Mountains, and the powers in Satu Amanar are said to keep vast domesticated herds.
