Revision as of 20:35, 13 May 2018

No beings rule the chaotic and changeable plane known as the First World, the home of the fey, but its most powerful residents are the mighty beings known as the Eldest, sometimes known as the fey-lords or the shapers.[1] They each pursue their own mysterious goals, and have little interest in the doings of lesser creatures.[2] All command great respect or fear from the other inhabitants of that strange realm,[3] and as demigods can grant spells to their worshipers.[4]

Powers

The Eldest are extremely adept at moulding the substance of the First World to their will, so their domains are oases of stability on that constantly changing plane—albeit oases that move around with their masters.[2]

History

The Eldest were responsible for creating the fearsome living weapons known as the Tane, and could unleash them once more should they feel the need to do so.[5]

The Eldest Known to Golarion

Presumably there are many Eldest spread across the infinite plane of the First World, but Golarion has only felt the influence of the nine whose realms are, or were, coterminous with this particular part of the Material Plane.[2] The father of all linnorms, mighty Fafnheir, claims that he only left the First World after slaying three of the Eldest at some point in the misty depths of pre-history.[6]

References

Eldest are described in The First World, Realm of the Fey.

Instead the courts of the Eldest replace this concept. Please see Fey Revisited for more information.
