    In the heart of the Falwood, trees towered higher than some of the tallest buildings you might find in other realms.

    The night was cool, but it was calm and quiet. It felt right. She was alone now, her former companion having brought her as far as the city's borders before departing. Or at least, that's how it seemed. His ways were so... interesting. But what was certain was now she approached the gates of...

  12. Diedrick

    Fable - Ask Men at arms

    He looked forward, knowing that the weather didn't fancy him. In truth, Diedrick hated rain with every fiber of his being. It was wet, unwelcoming.

    Private Tales A Thirst for Understanding

  20. Arianrhod

    Private Tales A Walk In the Woods

    The Falwood was the true home for elvenkind. It was far more welcoming than the harsh cold in the north. Arianrhod felt more at home in these warmer woods than she did the pines that scattered the lower foothills of the Spine. The predators were less fierce, the forest was more forgiving, and...
