Wilderness Locations of the Regifting

Last January, I gave away a copy of The Gnomes of Levnec, if people commented on my post with a description of a wilderness location. I never collected all those descriptions into a new post. So, I'm remedying that now.

Wilderness Locations


  1. The trees parted to reveal a golden meadow, glowing in the light of the stars.
  2. A jagged boulder rising out of the bushy landscape, on top of which is a pool of rainwater that never seems to run dry no matter how long between rains, where on magical occasion sprites and pixies can be seen at play.
  3. In the center of a lush valley laid an enormous rock the likes of which have never been seen heretofore.  The sections of the rock that are not covered with vegetation gleam like the eye of a lusty old man in shades of violet and yellow.  Signs of worship can be seen around it and small altars have been set up that appear to crush sacrifices to death.
  4. Near an overgrown orchard of pale and mottled fruits floats an ornate mahogany door that rattles in the wind.
  5. Under the dark boughs, against the rough bark, upon the needle-covered sward, the flesh-withered skeleton sat and smiled.
