A tall elf clad almost completely in whites and grays can at times be seen sitting outside the entrance to the Blightwood. Almost unmoving in his actions, he appears to be keeping watch for something...

Among the resident elves recovering from a mysterious ailment, rumour spreads that one has now begun coughing up blood. Sounds of harsh and persistent coughing echos in the Autumn Grove.

Since the ailment emerged, a slight elf, white of hair and dark of complexion, has been working tirelessly in the Autumn Grove. He performs household chores. Preparing meals, laundering the linens and garments, hauling water, and stacking firewood for the hearth. Any errand the afflicted are too weak to perform, he seizes upon without complaint. The stress, however, is clearly taking its toll on him. He has shed a lot of weight, and dark circles underscore his eyes.

In the wake of the tremendous storm and commotion over Degannwy and the southern woods, a dark-haired half-elven youth in a white and gold tabard likewise works around the Grove. Often at the side of the dark-skinned elf, he appears to have turned much of his attention to washing stained, torn, and bloodied linens and clothing.

Just a few days back, macabre crimson lightning broke the sky around the Refuge Of Degannwy, and crashing could be heard through the forest, both phenomena apparent from miles away. Sounds of war-cries and of battle and of the massive use of offensive and defensive spells sounded through the night, and afterwards word came out of what happened, much of it fragmentary. Those who had investigated before the battle reported defenses built over a sizable area in front of the ravine which normally forms the main barrier, and that inner zone around the village of Elves and fey beings was protected by a glowing mystical defense. Despite the building turmoil parties of adventurers braved the woods to add themselves to the ranks of defenders. Others arrived merely to investigate the growing cataclysm only to become caught up in the confrontation.
The ingredients necessary for a cure of the recent terrifying contagion had been obtained, but the cure also required a long ritual, and stopping this was the aim of the creator of that contagion.The renegade Avalan's power had grown far beyond what anyone could have anticipated, and his forces threw the defenders back several times only to have them rally and regain their positions. Despite the defense, the outer layer of works was broken a little more in each rush, so that the defenders finally retreated to avoid being overwhelmed. Avalan took to the field as an enormous treant, and he tried to mystically breach the barrier while the ritual neared its completion, but even with the defenders cast back their line held even with many barely able to stand.
Finally the ritual finished, and Avalan's power broken, and his form shattered. Those afflicted by his contagion at the site were treated directly and quickly showed signs of recovery, while messengers were sent to carry it to anyone afflicted not present. Despite the victory it seemed like it would take the woods near the refuge some time to recover from the battle which rocked the heavens themselves.

In the southern forest a sense of normal begins to emerge within a languid atmosphere of loss. The wounds of a prior threat, which once loomed like a guillotines blade over the outpost, begins shaky steps towards healing. Yet there are those who remain shadowed in every turn, taking to vigil over the old night, unearthing new grave tales for their hearts to bleed for.

With the Southern Forest finally at peace, a snow-touched druidess could be spotted between the tall trees, tending the injured land. Wooden animal feeders filled with herbs and nuts were placed around the forest as winter lurked behind the corner. New saplings were carefully planted in place of old trees that were used to build fortifications or died from the blight itself.

Various intricate symbols glowing with faint, green light would start appearing around the forest. One of them resembling a pair of stag antlers.

Within Degannwy, two elves clad in white were seen spending some time near the waterfall at the grove's western borders. After some time, a memorial could be seen erected. A weeping eye on a red shield depicted in its center, and an epitaph engraved upon its surface

Here lies Mishandra, the valiant elven hero. Whose spirit soared high, like an ethereal fire. She kindled hope in hearts, inspiring all, with relentless courage that made the evil fall.

Through trials and perils, she stood tall and strong, a faithful guardian of the elven kind, with purpose lifelong. Her battles were many--her victories renowned, a testament to her spirit, forever unbound.

In her footsteps, many found solace and light, for she guided us through the darkest of nights. Het legacy lives on, in the hearts she touched, a testament to a life that mattered so much.

In the forest she defended, where spirits reside--Her presence forever, in nature's eternal stride. Farewell, dear Mishandra, forever adored.

In our hearts, your spirit shall be forevermore

[A man in purple and gold knelt down by the memorial to Mishandra Peinfalaben after leaving a golden flower and stayed there nearly motionless for an entire day.  The wind and rain and kneeling seemed to not bother the man.  He was later joined by a short elf who then also knelt down with him after leaving their own flower by the memorial.  The elf left in the night and the man left in the morning.]

[Once again, a man and purple kneels by the memorial of Mishandra Peinfalaben for multiple days in a row, unmoving.  Once again, a short elf joins him.  This time, they both leave in the morning, multiple days and nights after the man first arrived to the site.  Two flowers are left by the marker.]

[On a third day of vigil, the man in purple and gold is once again knelt in the rain at the memorial.  Some people come by occasionally, and leave soon after.  Following a few days, the man says a quiet prayer at the memorial and then leaves the grove.  He looks noticeably thinner and haggard.]

In a room at the upper floors of Nant Gaerwyn in Degannwy, the silhuette of a corpse remains on the floor.
Tracks are leading away from it towards the door ...

A familiar draconic snow elf could be seen within Degannwy, tending to the memorial near the waterfall. Hushed elven words offered to the memorial, before he placed a flower at its base. The white-clad elf spent some time lingering about the autumn grove afterwards, before eventually taking his leave. Carrying a few bags of fruits, nuts and herbs alongside a small stack of wood.

The patrols of an elf, who at times has shared the tale of the blightwoods, grows erratic as he paced in his plate armour. Today something had them vigilant the light of the afternoon, counting the Feu Follet and sending concerned looks to the Giant Owl, which roosts all its days and nights without departing the Autumn Grove.

A message was recently discovered posted to the message board in Degannwy.

The messages reads as:
Quote
It is because of your idle ways that the vile stains upon our bloodline continue to breed.

You are unfit to rule over the land that you have stained with the blood of our kin.

How many more must die before you truly understand the sins of your ignorance?

I will lift the veil you have smothered our kin with for ages.

Consider this a declaration of war.

I will cleanse what is left and start anew.

The message does not seem to be signed.

Immediately next to the previous hostile declaration, a call for aide with a list of tasks and jobs to be accomplished for Degannwy village in preparation for anticipated hostilities. It instructs readers to consult with a Guardian, Librarian, or Marquessa for further information on tasks to be done.

Recently a new arrival have been seen entering and coming to Degannwy. His blue-gray skin indicates being a moon elf and he presents himself as Anyndur. He often investigates the announcement board and ask elves he meet about the Guardians of Degannwy.
