Fantasy Faire - Shop at Gaalthyr - April / May 2022
The sea holds great powers: healing, sustenance, shelter (for many creatures!) and cleansing just to name a few. It hasn’t always been this way. In the earliest of ages the sea was strictly fraught with dangers: poison, drowning hazards, corrosion of the lands… and a merciless firmament as impregnable as the Fade for those Elves who desperately pushed westward to escape the devastation of their homes by the encroaching lava flows from the mountain of Darkfire.
Unable to find refuge from the devastation any longer the Elves labored to deconstruct their dwellings and create a vessel that they prayed would carry them across the sea to a land they could build anew. One hundred moon rises into their journey the pilgrims hearing the testimony of the doomed tribe Mythal wept.
The pilgrims made landfall on the eastern bank of the continent they named it Gaalthyr and many came to live there far from any forest, mountain or canyon. The monument to Mythal became a place for the residents and visitors to give thanks to her for her gesture of empathy. The Elves would humble themselves at the base of the statue and offer their own tears back to Mythal, believing that the statue would send them upward into the Fade to replenish those that were shed for them in their moment of greatest need. It did not matter from what source were their sorrows. Those who visited the monument and wept with Mythal claimed to feel her embrace
