Ring of Shadows
Averdel Reach is nestled along the western edge of The Spires. According to legend, the Reach was once the home of the eldar’muroth, the eldritch keepers of the One Tree. Men and elves tended sacred gardens and learned and worshiped at the feet of the elven goddess Lantheir, whose disappearance during the Time of Ascension resulted in the varath’muur, the Long Walk. As the elven protectors of the Tree retreated into the mists, the Druids of Chandleir took charge of the sacred glades and groves.
Today, elven seekers and pilgrims of the old faith follow the Averdel River up to the Reach to serve the Circle or meditate in the sacred places of the vale. Those who understand the nature of the veil between worlds recognize that it is possible to cross into the mists of Ellindi in the depths of the vale and enter the Feywild.
It is within the wilds of Averdel Reach that a young minstrel by the name of Tobias secreted the precious Talis Stone.
