WOODLANDS OF TRAKAY

Once tranquil and serene, Trakay forest was the sanctuary for every traveler across Amyrion. Being a true source of nature and possessing a calming aura, the forest was a beacon throughout the ages. Nations consistently sought to take pieces of the woods back to their homes. As with everything that is beautiful, Trakay was threatened by the hands of the greedy and the minds of so-called progress. After many years of being pillaged by intruders, Trakay closed its pathways, and any who dared venture inside were not seen again.

The desert tribes of Sahar were the last foreigners to occupy Trakay during their last effort to expand their lands and gather more valuable resources for their growing army. The treefolk of Trakay made sure that the roots of the forest were drenched in the occupier’s blood.

From time to time, the greatest shepherds of the forest rise to protect what is dear to them. Reaching the tallest treetops of every wood, Strongbarks are the largest among all the residents of Trakay. Don’t be fooled by their slow pace, as soon you will feel the might of a tree stump crushing you.

Mushrooms are typically seen as stationary beings that wait for drops of rain to sustain them. But, when blood mixes with the essence of nature’s wrath, it makes even the smallest of fungi a dreadful sight to behold.

Not all flowers and shrubs have thorns – some of them are simply bigger and sharper. Evolved to protect, Thorn Guards are steadfast creatures made for slowing even the swiftest of enemies.

Trakay forests hide one of the deadliest plants of Amyrion, the infamous Sting Bud. This creature’s dangerous flower contains a potent toxin inside. Fragile by nature, but when positioned right, it is capable of obliterating even the sturdiest of armies. Not all weapons are made from the best metals or the highest levels of magic – some are grown from nature’s need for retribution.

“Tiny, yet quick and cunning “- those are the words used to describe the beautiful but deadly Fairy. Sometimes travelers mistake her gentle frame and colorful petals for a large flower.

Centaurs are a noble breed of sentinel, protectors of the forest. An old myth exists of their origin. It says that during a noble knight’s search for his royal steed deep in the woods of Trakay, a forest Nymph appeared. She would grant him one wish: to be taken back to his home or to stay here forever as one with his horse.

These silent predators are difficult to be seen around the forests of Aymrion. Always watchful for their prey, they stalk and prepare for their kill.

If you stumble upon a mystical glade full of tiny grass hills, don’t be frightened. It may just be a herd of gentle Grove Keepers, deep in their everlasting slumber. But nothing lasts forever, and when they hear the call to battle, their hooves will be on the move. Be wary of a thundering sound resonating through the forest because when the stampede begins, there is no stopping it.
