HMMM Who are the Snow elves? The Ysgramor invaders hunted the Snow Elves almost to extinction at the tail end of the Merethic era. With the race purged, their was a final round up to exterminate the remaining stragglers by the Nords- Battle of the Moesring. The Nords were a fearsome race that cut great furrows in the Snow Elves ranks. The tales tell of the snow churning red down the Moesring slopes.
