The next morning, Diane led the group through the forest. Each was carrying a pack, though luckily most of their gear was now loaded on the horses. Diane led one horse, and B'khee led the other, bringing up the rear.
Suddenly, Oberon found himself under a huge net blanket! A black elven warrior had just lept from the tree, capturing him.
Soon everyone was captured except Diane. Her horse had spooked and dragged her away. Other black elven had come from the trees, with ropes and nets, and worst of all, clubs.
The brigands began beating the captured group with the clubs as the dragged Diane could only look back in horror...
The Elven is a fantasy fiction webcomic set in the fantasy world called Theelven (Thayl-vehn). The plot takes place on the lost continent of Valdeterra (aka Thevalde, /Theh-vahl-day/). 7 races of elven explorers, two from each race, are split into three groups, searching Valdeterra for good places to colonize. While they are exploring, they face the dangers of the unknown, potential saboteurs, the elements, and their fears.
Each is under the influence of a translation spell which allows them to understand the languages of their fellow explorers. Each is also responsible to their separate home nations, and must not build any structures and above all must not get emotionally or romantically involved with each other.
