Of Men and Mer
The people who inhabit the land of Mereth, as Ysgramor called it, which later became known as the continent of Tamriel, are divided firstly by race. All races (that is, those which might be encountered in this campaign) are descended from the Ehlnofey which are also called the Earth-bones. The Mer are the elves. The elven peoples are divided by both cultural and physical differences. The kindreds of men are divided in similar ways, though their physical differences are less pronounced.
