Careful where you step, sien-grisso. The first seeds of the royal greenhouse came from here, and these flowers mean the world to us. If I see you plucking even one petal, you get a one-way trip to Irisport in a crate.The Whitebloom plains are at the southernmost part of the Great Forest, where trees get scarce as the sea gets close. It is said that it was one of Nelandra Aigleran's favorite location on the continent, but also her birthplace and homeland. The plains take their name from the unique flowers that grow there: the Nélandrées. "Whitebloom" is, in fact, the former name of the plant before it was renamed as it became the symbol of the Nelandrean Cult and the Menicean Royal family. There, the climate is perfect for the flower to grow; wild Nélandrées are found nowhere else but in the Whitebloom plains.
Pilgrimage spotAs Nelandra's homeland, the area got a lot of attention from the cult. A small division of guards patrols every day along the border with the forest to make sure no one is deteriorating the place. The crown also funds a small crew of gardeners to keep the flowers healthy and the place good looking. Each year, young pilgrims make a stopover at the coastal village of Hiarennel. They spend a few days exploring the area while listening to the local Dove's history lesson.
HiarennelAfter the place was deserted during the , as the Aigleran clan followed their leader Nelandra, people went back during the first century of the . The clergy was in a massive need of Nélandrées after Kelyeran Asturac revealed that he wanted the altars to have a flower for them to be authentic. Since the White Castle did not have the greenhouse at that time, they rushed the gardeners to the plains to get the whiteblooms they needed. For a few years, gardeners would make the trip each spring before some finally settled more definitively there as the spot became touristic.
