That Which Escapes Us: The Siege of Eroewan

June 21 - June 23, 2019

Site was Creathorne Farm - Grafton, NH.

Event Holders were Benjamin Lacasse, Kelsey Miranda, Michael Zajac.

Event Description
A strange breeze has blown through the ancient groves.  The forest itself has begun to stir in a way it has not done in millennia. In the night while the village sleeps, the ground rumbles as an old and malevolent neighbor scurries from their mounds and a long forgotten corruption is felt running deep beneath the roots.  From the villages to the castles, seers' heads' pound in agony as the same intrepid frequency domineers their visions.

As more animals flee their dens, and the forest's residents begin to stretch their limbs, the phantasms become more and more clear. A shimmering figure speaks a foreboding warning  that echoes in tunnels untouched by man.  Wriggling in the darkness, through villages, forests, castles and wasteland something rotten through our land treads.  Over tundra, cities and grassy plains a discrete and powerful force moves by night leaving ash, plague and rot in their wake. 

Mova, The Mother Tree, has cried out to all her children, for she knows all, and she knows it is her that this foul presence hunts.  She is ours to protect, and the Grove of Eroewan would see itself lain to waste before they let their mother be torn asunder.  Strong as we are, we cannot withstand the tides of evil alone.  

Blackwood calls for aide. To its Provinces, To its Allies and to any warrior brave enough to stand against the horrors to come.  We cannot assure you'll live, or even that we'll win this battle, but we can assure that if we do nothing, Eroewan will not be the only victim. Stand with us now against the deep unknown.  We are the last and only front. Godspeed.
Event Wrap-up
IC:

The dust settles in the ancient grove. The malevolent skittering of the Meenlocks has dwindled into silence as they retreat into deep into their holes. The Illithids have seemingly vanished, leaving behind only black stains in the dirt where their corpses once lay.
  Towns were reduced to rubble, surpluses have become shortages and families were rended asunder. The denizens of the forest have suffered a great deal, but thanks to the brave heroes of the Realms, they’ve been given the chance to rebuild. Eroewan, though reeling, is not broken and that is solely thanks to the valiant efforts of those who answered the call, and its people will never forget that.
The Ents are awakened, and for the first time in almost a millennia, the earth rumbles with their steps and the woodlands are alive with the sound of creaking bark and long, low voices that babble in brightest day and darkest night.
  In this time of victory and miracles, Mova the Mother Tree reminds us that this eruption of violence and havoc is but a foreboding shadow of what lies beyond the confines of our mortal minds. Far in the west, a shadow looms over a defender long forgotten. The sounds of falling trees and snapping branches like broken bones echo across the unknown expanse. She knows we must recover, but urges us to make haste lest a much more terrible fate befall us.

Tonight, and for many nights to come, the tavern bards sing to a host of homeless civilians. The brave soldiers speak of valiance and victory, but the minstrels sing a familiar hymn, and the people dare not let its truth be lost to them.

Home is behind, the world ahead,
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night,
Until the stars are all alight…
