    The world of Black Desert is extraordinarily detailed and complex —where many fictitious mythologies, religions, and cultures mix and clash. Unfortunately, the story's presentation is shrouded in obscurity, inconsistency, and biases similar to what modern anthropologists and historians also struggle with in the real world. To shed at least a little more light upon the most recent expansion(s), members of the Black Desert Roleplay Community have worked hard to compile this lore document on Kamasylvia and Elves.

    After three, almost four months of revisions and additions, the Kamasylvia & Elf Lore document has finally reached near completion for all things related to Kamasylvia Parts 1 and 2. Huge thanks to Maevynn, Saerenne, Rynley, Nerinne, Sasiria, Meldarmiriel/Rilma, Docile, and annachibi/Rheara for all of your contributions for the rework —and a very special thank you to Maiden/Syrrune, Maverick/Raeji, and Mordum/Ric for initiating the effort.

    [Disclaimer] There are bound to be errors, given the inaccuracies and changes made between official English translations and rough translations of KR lore. These will be corrected/added to as releases are made.

    The contents of this document are now open for review and feedback in case there are any details, typos, or other mistakes that were missed and need to be addressed. If you have any suggestions, questions, or comments, I encourage you to please post them here!

    Once the Draft Review stage is complete, I'll work on formatting/partitioning the information for the roleplay Enjin site (and here for the official forum site, as well, if there is enough interest) to perhaps move out of Google Docs. I know that, due to the sheer amount of text, the loading and scrolling can be very slow and/or jittery.

    Helped @Nasche out with this somewhat! (She did like, 99% of the work though, so all props should go where they're deserved!!)

    Really great write-up on the lore of Kamasylvia that we know so far—Perfect thing to read up on with Kama 2 coming out on Wednesday, if it's your thing!

    (Maevynn, you're too modest.) Update! We're always in need of more knowledge & lore hunters. There's a lot to sift through, now that Kamasylvia Part 2 is released. Please feel free to share your findings here. Discussion is also welcome!

    Current Update Plan & Changelog:

    ❖ The name Oggier has been changed to Okiara.
    ❖ The entry regarding Krogdalo under Mythos Figures shall be revised and expanded upon to reflect Krogdalo’s position within the mythos as the Legendary Dream Horse.
    ❖ A new entry, Audria, under Krogdalo has been added.
    ❖ The name Sikrua has been changed to Secrua in the Arduanatte entry.​
    ❖ New sections will be added regarding Gyfin Rhasia and the Pact of the Forest between the Tooth Fairies, the Spirits, and the Gyfin Rhasia.
    ❖ To avoid story spoilers, this section will be added at the very end of the document after EXTERNAL RESOURCES.
    ❖ 90 days after Kamasylvia Part 2’s NA/EU release, this section will be moved up between Mythos Figures and Ethnicities.​
    ❖ More details will be added to Ganelle under Ethnicities as well as Acher and Ranger under Factions regarding their dispositions and attitudes.
    Modern Figures will be updated to include the many new figures of Kamasylvia Part 2.
    ❖ More details will be added to Kamasylvia Martial History under Magic, Customs, & Ethics.
    ❖ New sections will be added under Magic, Customs, & Ethics on the governing system Grandir and architectural style Kavik of Grána.
    ❖ A new section on Entry to Grána shall be added under Magic, Customs, & Ethics.
    Tooth Fairy, Ronaros, and other entries will be added under Spirits, Fauna, and Flora.
    Western Kamasylvia under Geography will be expanded upon.

    Thank you very much for this really excellent work. This tells the story of Kamasilve beautifully in a single document.
    Since I have the next few days something to browse <3
