Black Oak Tree

The Black Oak was a beautiful tree that used to grow in the elven groves of Glen Groudle. They were all destroyed by fire when King Valour Wingedstar conquered Dnul as he feared the magic they possessed could be used against his army.   There is only one item remaining that is made from Black Oak, and that is a royal staff that is currently held in the vaults of Transway. Rohan Dragonstar was the last person able to wield it. His brother Lemayne has tried, but it would not recognize him as the correct owner.
