Most of the bright world is sparsely populated by the Drys, who live as scavengers and hunters. Most Epiphyte islands are too small to support even one humanoid so the numbers of these wild elves are few. They are almost always rangers and druids, though some become clerics or adepts that serve the god of this realm, Krystallos. They live a simple life trying to survive in the strange floating forests. There are few conflicts with tribes over terrain because they accept that their tree-world is evershifting and unclaimable. A single Epiphyte or even a group are always slipping away, and not enough to support a family.
They do hold to the legend of Krystallos, and the glowing shards are sacred to them. To cover one is to cut off the light giving life and destroy all the epiphyte trees that are sustained by it’s rays. They understand the balance that keeps the world alive.
Drys only ever fight with the Vinea, but often lose to the more warlike and better organized elves of the Blight.
