The Death Knight Chronicles
Though they had gods, when the Elves suffered the sun there was no afterlife waiting for them. As such, their departed were left to wander Antikthon. As the Elf-dead grew in population, so did a shadowy new Elven civilization; Erindo – the still heart. The Empire of Erindo stretches from one end of Skerv to another. Its Emperor,Taskarni has claimed dominion over all of Vesper’s dead. Since the Theists, that has come to include every death on the continent since the gods are no longer able to claim their faithful (if, indeed, the gods have any left).
