Yil'enoth Tree (Yihl-eh-nauth)

The Yil'enoth witnessed the founding and fall of the Galvii' Kingdom and the formation of the I'll Dorei. The tree has long been a sacred place for those who live under its canopy. The roots spread far into the surrounding forest, building a large network of banyan-like offshoots, creating a tall and intimidating network of roots and vines. Within these vines, The city of Galvinora, for example, uses the labyrinth of vines and various natural defenses as a way to stave off unwanted visitors. The Elven druids of the Selenar Wood help to maintain the ecosystem both spiritual and physical, much like how the tree helps to maintain those who worship and care for it.

Purpose / Function

Throughout history, the Yil'enoth Tree served as a neutral ground, even within troubling times. Currently, the tree sits in the center of the city of Galvinora. The inner walls of the tree are lined with rare herbs, flowers and roots which can be ground up or ingested to perform a variety of healing effects.


The architecture within the Yil'enoth fits within the general realm of wood elf architectural styles. The sharp arches and natural materials complement the original form of the tree as more rooms and bridges are built. Neutral colors also help to maintain a sense of camouflage within the city as the various homes blend in to the landscape.


Meshed into the history of the ancient tree are various tales and myths. One such myth involves a champion of Izmus who, upon their travels, befriended the druids of the tree. undefined

This festival is known as The Fey Moon Festival and is.
