25.12.18 Scidve

Nestled to the southwest of the Tree of Life, in the Vashnars, the Valley of
Scidve is an area that once contained a small village of Xorani which traded
peacefully with the city of Thera.  Historians of Thera claimed that one day
traders with the valley no longer felt safe on the journeys and that a foul
curse had fallen over the valley.  The creatures that once inhabited the
forests became dark and sinister, and the villagers slowly were transformed.

The historians are also quick to point out that the valley was protected by a
number of woodland folk, including a festive satyr and the daughter of Slyphe,
the Goddess of the Seas.  Since little has been heard from either in recent
years, it is uncertain if they still inhabit the valley.
