Gift of Eomar
The Conglomerate is a spiritual and magical bond that ties all elves of Aelostrian both to one another and to the natural world around them that they cherish so deeply.
Elves are almost always born in Aelostrian, among the warm embrace of The Conglomerate; to bring a child into the world otherwise is a harsh taboo and considered a crime against elvenkind. Young elves periodically venture forth into the world from Aelostrian seeking worthwhile knowledge or power to return and strengthen The Conglomerate. Those elves cast out of Aeolstrian in exile are severed from The Conglomerate; a highly traumatic event and widely viewed as the worst punishment to be placed on someone by elven standards.
