Below and Beyond Kyvid
Ibynur was once covered by a massive forest, but since it was taken over by the Utaro Empire, it has become quite urban. The primary race in Ibynur are elves who once lived in the forest, but now live in small logging towns spread out through the territory. The land was sought out by the empire due to its large natural resources and the elvish tribes of the time were no match for an organized army, so instead of fighting the elves struck a deal. In order to prevent the humans from stripping the land bare, they agreed to do it themselves so they could control the loss and regrow the portions of forest that were cleared. Since that time, the elves have grown accustom to urban living and have formed many large lumber guilds that provide the empire with wooden goods of master craftsmanship.
