New Lands and Species Discovered by the Elysium
""My Queen, the Crystal Wood is a never-ending cascade of the wondrous. There must be something here to help our cause. Though the trees present a vertical thicket so dense, even daylight fails to touch the ground, the forest is alive with light. Everything here emits it's own luminescence as the fantastic glowing fish who swim the darkest depths back in the Green World. Crystals sprout from trees and the very ground emits an ever-shifting multi-colored glow. So complete is the Wood's assault on celestial light, only one species I've encountered here so far has even seen the Sun or the Moon. The Moon Sprites make a vertical pilgrimage up the tree trunks every month to witness the Full Moon. I suspect it is a spiritual thing for them since once they reach the upper branches of the Great Trees their bodies begin to glow and they sing......"
Gorgeous warbling tones from pitch-perfect voices fill the wood. All night long they'll sing up there in the tree tops. The denizens of this Wood add their own vocalization to the Sprite's music. Their clear voices carry all through the forest inciting the crystals to resonate; the very rocks join their chant. The entire night is filled with melody and light. I suspect the mystical energies generated by this kaleidoscopic ritual ripples across the dimensions reaching even the Green World. I shall have to attempt measurement once I return. A more serious scientist, I, myself have never been moved to such frivolity as midnight singing. Yet I find myself, oddly inspired, indeed almost compelled to add my admittedly tragically off pitch voice to theirs. As my song completes I feel somehow diferent......Odd............"- Silas Granville Windlass, Fifth of the Elysium
Mr. Windlass has discovered a way to send willing Sprites across the Veil. Moon Sprites season will begin in March. A few Sprites have been thinking it would be a grand adventure to pop on over to our world. (and they need to avoid being hunted by the Unseelie Queen). A handful will manifest for only the full moons of March, April, May, and June. More will be revealed about them in the coming months.
Specimens from the Crystal Wood
"Everywhere in the Crystal Wood light pours from flora and fauna alike. The more time I spend here I can feel old ailments fading, old hurts loosening their grip. Though there is no light from sun or moon, I feel somehow lighter, optimistic. I have come to believe the living stones that sprout from the trees and the ground have healing energies. I am sending some samples across The Veil for study.. They should arrive with the first flight of Moon Sprites with the March full moon...."
