Her Gossamer Threads

So she gathered many of her strands together and wove them into a form of her choosing, and she hung there in the heavens as a ball of silvery light. She was named Ea-Raena, that is "the beauty of youth,' who the dwarves called Dunareu, though in after days she was called Mailahm, the Maiden of Night. ~ The Codex of Aihrde

Meadows for Borders

The forest gives way to an open meadow, perhaps a farmer's field. But there is little sign of furrows in the earth, only a fog settling over all. Somewhere in the distance a voice bellows, deep and mean, filled with a hunger that makes the coming night seem all the more dark. ~ The World of Aihrde

Like Old Trolls

The trees stood like old trolls, straight but gnarled. And it the truth that trolls become rooted to the ground over time, weighed down by the life's evil work. Entering the forest seems reckless, but it is the only way forward. ~ The World of Aihrde

Beyond the Valley

Steeped in mist and the shadows of the early evening the valley seems wide and the trees to yield no easy path. Beyond lie the western slopes of the Voralbergs. Somewhere in that wild country stands the Witch's Tower and the Ring of Athaile. ~ The World of Aihrde

Chambers in the Woods

You stumble on the door quite unexpectedly, hidden away in a moss-covered cleft beneath the tree line. No path or trail leads to it, nor any sign that any save a few wild beasts know of its existence. The door is stout however and little weathered by time . . ..

Beneath the Cold, Cold Ground

His was an inhospitable soul, and the old dwarf left all behind and wandered into the high mountains where stood the lonely peak of Iseldrim. There he hid his treasure in a deep hold. There it lies, lost, in the valley that bears his name. ~The World of Aihrde

The Mad Tree

He dwells in a tree of a house, or a house of a tree, however you choose to look at it.  In quiet. The years have been unkind to him and he is mad. His speech is constant, like an overflowing cup. But it does not matter, for he possesses the knowledge you need. ~ The World of Aihrde

From the Dark Water

They are found south of Gurthop Falls, where the two rivers converge. There the land is forever flooding and bogs become small ponds and ponds become lakes. There the beast dwells, for it finds comfort in the cool waters. ~ The World of Aihrde
