Rucien-Xan was a hidden elven realm allegedly located somewhere in the Chondalwood. Supposedly, it contained only one city, also called Rucien-Xan,[1] that served as the capital for both it and the nearby realm of Nikerymath.[citation needed]


No explorer or adventurer has ever found Rucien-Xan, though stories exist mentioning it that date back to the time when Jhaamdath was founded.[citation needed] Following the Retreat, finding the lost elven kingdom would be that much more difficult.[1]

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?]
