The Bridge

The bridge spans shallow water. The road winds through the country beyond, even to the mountain, your objective. It seems odd, here in the wilds, this bridge, but maybe its best not to get your feet wet this late in the year.

The Shelves of the Mist

Elves dwelt there. In their glory. But the cruel Winter brought war & death. Such tragic loss that the weight was as a stain. Now men call them the Shelves of the Mist, but still, they beckon, offering redemption and adventure. ~ The World of Aihrde

Fortifying the Hill

They set the castle upon the hill and fortified it with high walls and towers. Many barbicans were set upon the singular path that led to the berg, and these were made such that one could defend the other.

The Mariner's Ship

Little remained of the mariner's ship. The surf and time had ground much of it away. But still, lying there in ruin, it captured the evening's light, cupping the stars in its cavity. It held a magic of the old world. ~ The World of Aihrde

Sun Bleached Towers

He built his tower upon a high cliff and fortified it with walls and bastions. There it stood,white stone set atop sun-bleached cliffs. A tower of some noble lord.
