    I have a question about a province in Markazor. The one with no stats on
    the Anuire map that is in the upper left hand corner of the map and looks to
    be a Forest/Mountain province. I vaguely remember something about it maybe
    in my Tuarhieval Domain Book; but someone stole it from me a couple years
    back. Does anyone have any in depth info on this?

    Thanks for any help.

    Tony

    I think the Gorgon`s Alliance computer game named it the `Lost Realm`.
    The province you`re thinking of from PSoTuarhievel is Sideath, the
    province that was overrun by the Gorgon`s army and then blasted into
    quasi-shadow by an elven wizard.

    Skyewode
    Alignment: Neutral
    Provinces: Skyewode is controlled by Arwen Laokorn. His domain is
    constantly threatened by the goblins of Markazor, but the Laokorn`s magics
    are at least enough to protect this small realm.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ----

    Province
    Law
    Temple
    Guilds
    Sources
    Loyalty

    Skyewode (3/8)
    AL (3)
    RGE (1)
    AL (3)
    AL (7)
    High


    Abbreviations: AL = Skyewode (Arwen Laokorn), RGE = Redwood Grove of Erik
    (Gwenheivar Hjalsone)



    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ----

    a.. Law: Laokorn controls the law in Skyewode, he does not allow the
    Ghellie Sidhe or goblins to hold any sway. While Laokorn does not suffer
    any direct opposition, the Gorgon remains a constant threat to the small
    forest realm.
    b.. Temples: Elves do not commonly worship gods. However half elves and
    humans who live in Skyewode occasionally visit the Redwood Grove of Erik.
    This small sect of Erik is allowed inside this realm by the Laokorn, who
    does not believe in the god, but recognizes the power of his priests.
    c.. Guilds: Laokorn dominates the trade in Skyewode. Weather it be trade
    of elven manufactured goods, rare woods and plants from the forest, or
    metals unearthed from the Stonecrown Mountains by his goblin slaves.
    Laokorn also trades with Tuarhievel, and has a trade route to Cwmbheir.
    d.. Sources: Laokorn controls most of the source holdings in Skyewode.
    None oppose his control of the mebhaighl, but in the tradition of the elves,
    he allows elven mages access to his source holdings when asked.
    Regency Generated/Accumulated: 19/35
    Treasury: 15 GB
    Army: Skyewode maintains a small army, relying on the Laokorn`s magic to
    protect this realm so close to the Gorgon. The full forces are as
    follows:

    a.. 1 unit elf archers
    b.. 1 unit elf cavalry
    c.. 1 unit scouts
    Regent: The ruler of Skyewode is Arwen Laokorn. The King of Skyewode (ME;
    T/M 7/8; Ma, Major, 43; N). Laokorn won this province from Markazor some
    decades ago, and has somehow managed to keep his lands safe from the Gorgon
    and the goblins. The king does believe in elven superiority, but is also a
    supporter of human/elf relations. Skyewode was the only elven realm to
    demonstrate any support of Fhileraene`s marriage. The king believes that by
    working together everyone`s lives will be more prosperous, and lesser races,
    such as goblins, should be returned to their ancestral heritage as slaves.
    Arwen disapproves of the current incarnation of the Ghellie Sidhe, as it is
    disruptive to the harmony of the Aelvinnwode.

    a.. Lieutenants: Arwen Laokorn has two lieutenants which help him
    maintain his small realm. One is Faoiltiarna Laokorn (FE; M7; Re, Minor,
    25; CN), she is not only the wife of Arwen, but also a powerful wizardess in
    her own right. Together they can deal with most threats to the realm. And
    the other, Logan MacIver (M1/2E; B8; unblooded; LN), was raised the the
    highlands of Mhoried, but found his elven blood ever calling him to the
    woodlands. He has proven himself loyal and able to deal with many
    problems.
    Important NPCs: Being a small kingdom, Skyewode does not have extensive
    noble families like Tuarhievel. In fact Skyewode is very young for an elven
    kingdom, having been in existence for less then 20 years. Being a small
    kingdom, Skyewode must be vigilant against any threats, one man is primarily
    responsible for the non magical defense of the realm. He is the son of a
    Khinasi warrior who helped Laokorn liberate this land from the control of
    the goblins. Having inherited his father`s position as general of the
    armies of Skyewode, Eamon abTreague (MK; F7; unblooded; LN) works tirelessly
    against any who would cause harm to another inside Skyewode. The next most
    important person in Skyewode, Gwenheivar Hjalsone (FR; P6, Erik; Br, Minor,
    17; CN) has convinced the king to allow her temple inside of an elven
    kingdom. While the tenants of Erik do not offend the elves, and some half
    elves even have turned to the worship of him, the elves themselves respect
    the magics that the priests can call upon and not the Power itself.

    Description: This kingdom lies at the border of four other realms;
    Mhoried, Cariele, Tuarhievel, and Markazor. Skyewode is a land of dark
    forests and jagged peaks. While the forest of Tuarhievel seems to hold a
    haunted beauty, Skyewode`s forest seem meerly haunted. When the goblins
    ruled these lands they cared little for the results of their actions, and
    caused much damage to the forest. While much of this ruin has been
    repaired, there remains many reminders of the goblin`s stewardship. Groves
    of stunted trees, and corrupted woodland creatures can still be found.
    While rare, it is still possible to find all manner of skeletal remains in
    left in the wilderness, some of which are more lively then one would hope.
    In some remote areas, the Shadow World presses uncomfortably close, allowing
    all too much traffic in both directions. Roads lead into Tuarhievel and to
    Mhoried, but travel to and from Skyewode can be difficult at best during
    winter.

    a.. Capital: The capital of Skyewode, Gannemyr, is in the north of the
    province. Roads from Torien`s Watch in Mhoried and from Bhindraith in
    Tuarhievel both come to the main center of Skyewode`s population. Elves,
    humans and half elves all interact on a reasonably friendly level here,
    trouble makers are shown to the eastern borders of Skyewode and told to
    never return.
    b.. Trade Goods: Items of elven manufacture are always sought after in
    human lands. Skyewode creates finished goods well known for their beauty
    and durability.
    Allies: Skyewode`s allies include Tuarhievel and Mhoried. Laokorn
    understands that humans are not as skilled at using the resources of the
    land as elves are, but he abhors the way that Cariele treats their lands.
    The willingness of the Laokorn to deal with humans prevents the Sielwode
    from being more friendly.

    Enemies: Markazor, being the most aggressive nation on the border of
    Skyewode, is clearly the biggest threat to the kingdom. Cariele and Mheallie
    Bireon have worked hard to prevent the Laokorn from expanding his trade
    network into the rest of Anuire.

    Special Conditions: Even more than any other area of the Aelvinnwode,
    Skyewode has been the site of much bloodshed and other foul deeds. On cold
    nights it can be very easy to wander into the Shadow World unknowingly.
    Travelers who have returned from such, have reported that Laokorn is
    recognized as regent on both sides of the veil between the worlds.



    hope it helps

    Arjan

    Is that something that is Canon or made up? I`m looking for any Canon
    source material produced by TSR/Wizards. Thanks for that though.

    No it's not Canon, but it is a pretty good write up.
