A Rule With Teeth

“Know, O traveler, that you pass through dedicated lands; these places are sacred to the Blue and the Purple, and to them alone.”

“Drink deep, eat well our fruits, hunt for your meat; but light no fires, claim no holds, and harm nothing that grows. Those who pass freely may reap the forest’s bounty; those who despoil shall fall to its claws. Blood for blood, sap for sap, to transgress is to be our prey.”

“Thus speak those who acquiesce to Sylithandríël Leafcloak, the Twilight Mother; thus speak those who clarify Sylithandríël Leafcloak, the Twilight Mother; thus too speak those who acquiesce to Gáldabar Wildlord, the Red-Fanged Hunter; thus too speak those who clarify Gáldabar Wildlord, the Red-Fanged Hunter.”

– translated from a pre-Winter runestone, excavated in modern Veranthyr
