Hello! I am new to LotC server and I just made my character
I am in a bit of a pickle though, as I am not entirely sure if they should live in the Silver City of the Elves or in another elf nation that is less 'xenophobic' to the other races
I have good arguments for both, but I guess I would rather get a community opinion rather then try to make it my own due to others having more experience here.
The High Elf in question is named Maehir, and is a scholar/mage(?)/studier of history, magic, and all things unknown. He, like other high elves does believe in the idea of purity. However he is not a super purist at heart. He has a fondness for the 'lesser' races of the realms (mainly humans), and seeks to mimic them in the ways they peruse goals in their short lives and isn't a bigot towards them, nor is one to look down at their inherit 'inferiority'. Due to this conflicting ideal he has, I have been rather stuck on where he should live. Should he have home in the Silver City? Or should he live in a different elven realm (do know he was born in the Silver City to begin with, and does follow many High Elf customs depending on what they are)

I agree that you should probably choose to live in the Silver City as I think it would fit your character, definitely shouldn't let the fact the character would be conflicted about it stop you from choosing what makes most thematic sense. However I suggest at least visiting the others as it makes sense if your character has such a conflict that he would investigate the other cultures. But I imagine that's part of the fun, experiencing that conflict of values in RP, not deciding before hand.
Regardless, have fun Roleplaying on the server! And if you're a scholar, I suggest talking to the Remembrancers, they're an international scholar guild that has quite the history ;)
