Campaign of the Month: April 2012
If it were not for the source of the material, I would have considered the book to be a work of fiction more than what it was: a true account attested to by the very leadership of the Church of Light and Dark.
The Millennium Tree and the Glade that surrounds it are much vaunted in popular mythology, at least of the region surrounding said tree, but the mythology does the truth but little justice. The tree is miles across and many hundreds of feet tall. It is truly an entity of arboreal splendor.
I said entity, for entity it is. It chooses who can approach, and grants boons to those it allows into its embrace. These boons can take the form of the only thing that the tree has to offer. It offers pieces of itself to travelers.
From leaf blankets that heal the sick to staves and wands stripped from its living arms these gifts are truly magical and bring with them a piece of a truly magnificent being.
Those it chooses not to allow will find themselves prevented from approaching the tree.
While the exact nature of the tree is not known, there is much speculation about its coincidental appearance at the time when the Old Ones were sealed away from this plane. It is said that should the Millennium Tree fail, that the prison of the Old Ones shall fail also.
