While flying to the Elven continent, Theodore asks Shadow how he deals without his parents being around. Shadow explains that its through his deity that it helps him through the day. Seto however overhears Theodore’s trials and offers to make him stronger and show him the ways of the dragon shaman (shay-men), Theodore agrees to it.
The first place the party lands upon reaching the Elven continent was Barkwood forest. They were being watched the whole time, but no one questioned the party being in the forest. Elderon greeted the party upon arriving to the forest village. Nothing impressive, a working village, gathers of food, makers of goods, many many warriors, and merchants as well. Quite a small forest for the number of Elves inhabiting it. After talking over the course of action, Elderon points the party to the direction of Tanwood forest and gives his name and emblem. The party travels over to Tanwood, and before they could even get to shore, they were targeted by archers of Tanwood. The party mentions Elderon’s name and the Tanwood Elves show the party to Silvawood, the primary diplomat and ambassador for the Elves. After some blunders by Dacian Gabranth, as far as being diplomatic, Leoben Battleheart steps in to try to talk. Meanwhile Seto “Rockcrusher” Thuliga is being a big blue giant this whole time. Laughing Shadow would be in attendance, however he stayed out at the bar late, came back and slept. Hasn’t woken up since, lily has been with him the whole time. Silvaworm is not convinced and believes that the man who calls himself Gabranth that stands before him is an immature child. He sends his elite warrior guard to test Dacian and put him in his place. After some critically placed strikes by the warrior, Dacian was bloodied immensely within 6 seconds. Leoben uses his healing skill to restore Dacian unnaturally well. And then Leoben turns around and states that by Dacian submitting, that he shows true discipline of a leader. Silvaworm is swayed by these words, and agrees to help the party.
The party, Silvaworm, and his 4 elite guards fly to Lightwood forest. Upon landing on the outskirts, Archers are prepared to fire. Silvaworm steps out first and tells them to stand down. They are guided, with the party being in the center of all this, to the heart of Lightwood forest.
Upon arriving, they witness some of the most beautiful, the most well dressed, the most impressive Elves they had ever seen. There were such a small amount of Elves, unlike Barkwood and their overflowing forest. Silvawood guides them outside the chamber. Gives them harsh warning for the party (Dacian) to watch their tongues. He then steps into the chamber and one by one, calls in each individual member of the party, and proclaims great things (some details exaggerated) in their name as they enter. The party then speaks to Tolrendo Fulleron, the leader of the Elves. After some civil discussion, Tolrendo reveals that Garland, was the only human to ever set foot in the chamber before they did, and Garland left a good impression. Tolrendo asks them what can be done. The party asks that Elves ally with them and support them in their quest to restore balance to the world. Tolrendo agrees and orders Silvawood to allow them to use Tanwood forest as a base of operations and to reward them for good deeds done for the world. Tolrendo also gives his name as a token of what other world leaders would recognize, to ask them to join the cause. As a parting note, Dacian asks about aquatic creatures and where some might be found. Tolrendo informs him that Crescent Lake might have what he is looking for.
