The Sacred Grove
The Sacred Grove is an ancient wellspring of natural power. The Guardians of the Sacred Grove have been protecting it since the time of pre-Roman Britain, in one form or another. The Guardians conduct a number of rituals at the Grove throughout the year to keep the natural and supernatural worlds in balance.
The Grove has a strong tranquil resonance, bringing peace and calm to all who reside there. Despite that, the Guardians will fight to the death to defend the Grove, if called upon to do so. Fortunately, the remote location and strong enchantments of the Node means attacks upon it are rare indeed.
Tass in the node accumulates in the form of honey which is collected by huge, enchanted bees. The Guardians make fantastic mead from the honey.
The Sacred Grove has the following effects upon it:
The Beguiling Path: A strong mind effect that causes people who enter its radius to turn around and forget where they were going; if anyone is able to resist the first part of the effect, the Guardians of the Sacred Grove will be mentally alerted
Balm of the Seasons: The weather at the Grove is always pleasant and mild – even in winter it is possible to comfortably sleep outside
Nature’s Wrath: As a last resort of defense, the trees of of the Grove to rise up to defend it
