Dysvoll Ellecran Forest
Home to the lost ages
The mild weather, the overgrown paths and the gleaming ruins in its midst make for a most enchanting forest. However, not many lay their eyes on it anymore, as it is no longer anything but a forest on the bank which traders have to pass when travelling by boat.The Dysvoll Ellecran Forest is commonly referred to as the Ellecran Forest by everyone who lives around it. The only people who always adds the distinction of "Dysvoll" are those who know, that part of the forest no longer remains in the human realms. Those people are the Fae, and they call the stolen part of the forest the Alahon Ellecran Forest as it is tucked away safely in the pocket dimension known as Alahon.
History of Ellecran ForestEllecran forest has seen both hordes of visitors just waiting to get past the trees and into the forest, as well as times where no one even dared to go near.
Once the center of high societyThe forest used to be home to one of the most influential nations in the northern parts of Dysvoll, however, this once great city-state no longer stands. The final court leading Neklian disappeared without a trace, leaving the citizens to fend for themselves. Over time, the Ruins of Neklian have been long forgotten, left to crumble deep within the forest with only the critters around inhabiting its overgrown houses.
Travel Destination for the FaeEllecran forest as well as Neklian was not only popular with the Humans inhabiting Dysvoll, but also with the fae. Many fae traversed the human world for the first time to come see the forest and the beautiful city within, though they did not disclose to the humans that they were not one of them. One fae who was fond of the forest was Yleen Ikliass, the architect of Alahon. She loved it so much that she brought a part of it with her to Alahon, so she could always have it close.
