the Eladrin

A term used by Timberporters to refer to those Eladrin, out there, where sensible people do not tread. Timberport’s only regular contact with the Eladrin is their resident trade factor. Their White Ships appear at Timberport twice a decade (or so; the Eladrin appear to have only the vaguest grasp of time), and their resident trade factor arranges well-received deals. Conversations with the eladrin Eladrin sailors (and, so far as anyone has ever seen, no Eladrin sailor is not a member of the eponymous race) tend to brief, unless discussing sailing, which is about all that Timberport and the Eladrin have in common.

Capitalizing the word Eladrin indicates the polity which owns the forest surrounding Timberport, rather than the race.
