Elven extinction

General Discussion
Why do all movies/games seem to put this race on verge of total extinction? I personally have never come across a story that started with *elven race is at its prime* its always x
thousand year old empire on the verge of collapse!

Anyone else feel the same?
I hate to tell you, but elves aren't on the edge of extinction.

The Night Elves are, after the events of the War of Thorns, true.

And the "high elf" faction obviously is.

But the Nightborne are breeding like rabbits (you've been to Suramar, right? Kids everywhere!) and I'm pretty sure that after 14 years in an intact, peaceful city with a restored Sunwell, the Blood Elves probably have a whole new generation growing up right now.
What kind of kid would you get if you bred a nightborne with a blood elf?
Who wants to see ten thousand years of elven empires...?

Says the Gnome whose city was destroyed by their own. At least our city was destroyed by an unstoppable army of the dead.

I mean, I'm pretty sure elves breed with each other all the time. It never made any sense to me that the "high elf" faction preferred to breed with humans than kaldorei. Like, why would you go across species like that?

Pretty sure there's a lot of troll half-breeds out there too.

Nah, put him in the basement. I heard they make good cloth workers in a tailoring sweatshop.

I suggest The Elder Scrolls series to solve this problem. Three main types and like eight plus minor sub races of elves only a couple of the minor ones are failing or extinct.

a confused one
Tolkien, I think. All modern High Fantasy follows Tolkien as a guide.

I have to say out of all of them Elder Scrolls for a game feels like it deviates the most from his work.
