Paths of Gaeda
Valley of the Ancestors
Near the winter camp of the Eagle Tribe of the Kashwa, is a secluded ravine/valley. At certain times of the year a golden tower appears there. The valley is guarded by the spirit of a long-dead Kashwa shaman, and was at one point a sacred burial site for the Kashwa. The valley also contains the ruins of an old temple, and looks to have been at one point the site of a meeting-place for the various houses of the Storm Elves. The temple complex includes a large tunnel that goes deep into the earth, largely blocked off, which remains unexplored. Victor freaked out when this tunnel was encountered and claimed that it led to something terrible.
There is also a mechanism here which raises a large brass obelisk (the golden tower) to reflect light down into this tunnel at certain times of the year.
Iolar’s researches have revealed that this site was where the various nobles of the Storm Elves had neutral meetings, and also where they met with a previously unknown house: the House of Shadow.
