fantasy reframe, fascism
One thing The Elder Scrolls got right is fascist elves. To reframe the traditional role of elves in fantasy:
- high elves rule much of the "civilized" lands, either directly or by controlling human leaders with intrigue and magic.
- ethic cleansing drove the "evil" races underground or to the wilderness
- drow and svirfneblin were not created underground, orcs were not "savage" tribes; they had nations on par with the humans' until the elves came to power.
