Rucien-Xan was a hidden elven realm allegedly located somewhere in the Chondalwood. Supposedly, it contained only one city, also called Rucien-Xan, that served as the capital for both it and the nearby realm of Nikerymath.
No explorer or adventurer has ever found Rucien-Xan, though stories exist mentioning it that date back to the time when Jhaamdath was founded. Following the Retreat, finding the lost elven kingdom would be that much more difficult.
However, the Moonstars did have an agent in Rucien-Xan, though obviously this was a closely guarded secret. Nuvian Eyes-Ashen was their regional agent for the Vilhon Reach and Shining Plains regions.[as of when?]
