The Destiny Of Dunsany
The forest to the west of Dunsany is sparsely populated by a mix of elves and eladrin. While technically within the bounds of the human Barony of Dunsany, the elves in the forest answer to no one but the holder of the Throne of Ivy, Diurna Vastes.
Due to an interesting quirk of geography, the elven forest lies very close to a very nice river that leads all the way to the Albinese ship-town of Southport. Now, with a war with Columbia brimming (as these things happen every now and again), certain interests will look to the forest for easy old growth lumber. This is a bad idea, for two reasons
- The elves are mighty. Don’t go looking for trouble on their turf. Imagine if the Lorax was Gandalf.
- Dunsany has made it a policy over the centuries to always be ‘somewhere else’ when lumberjacks from Albion come calling. In other words, the Baron (and his grandfather, and his great-grandfather) will not and did not aid any of these tree-chopping attempts.
