Not much is known about the mysterious Elder Council of Norjord. They teach the majority of those Norjians possessing the gift of Shapeshifting. It is rumoured they are the oldest 'Clan' in Norjord, springing from deep in the Jotunheimen Range. The Council comprises humans and goliath, but the latter far outnumbers the former. Rumor and speculation through the Clans brings up the name of Ásta the Elder of the Direwolf Clan but little is known beyond the name. The Elders keep to themselves and squabbles between the Clans do not concern them.
