Wy'rded Tales - Stories of Zyathé

Cheers and greetings!

 

Hail my friends, and welcome to the Wy’rded Tales! Here you may find short accounts and stories from my own extensive travels across Zyathé, as well as those from other prominent wanderers, all transcribed for your perusing pleasure. From time to time you may find new tales here that explore the interesting people, fascinating objects, deadly monsters, peculiar happenings, and other oddities across the world. They should make for a pleasant read, or perhaps they will inspire you to set out and explore the Wy’rded World for yourself. In either case, I hope you enjoy these intriguing stories.

Cheers and greetings,  my friends!  Come, join me as I rest from my travels. There is a wayshrine of Davodandalus not far from here, and I happen to know that the attached tavern and inn run by its quiescent priests offers some of the heartiest ales, finest pipeleafs, and softest beds for many miles. Besides providing a fine hearth where you can take your ease and put up your feet, there are few better places to sit and listen to the fascinating tales of your fellow travelers. Whether you’ve been exploring Zyathé for many years or have just set out from your homeland for the first time,...

Blessings of Davodandalus “Welcome, traveler, to the Smoky Hearth! I am Sir Rudy Dobrindle, Knight of Repose, and barkeep for this fine establishment. I trust the food and drink are to your liking, and I assure you, you will have the best night’s sleep you’ve ever had tonight on one of our magnificent beds. If you partake of the noble pipeleaf, we have many of the finest Zustrenian and Sundestian blends, but also a number of quality local varieties. I would recommend Andvallan Gold against any of the imported foreign leafs, and you can trust a Paladin of Davodandalus on such things! Should...

The Trees Have Eyes   “Gather ‘round, no sense in sullenly staring into your mugs when there’s a tale to hear and wisdom to be imparted! Now, even the most sheltered nobles will  have heard tales of the Bramble Creepers that stalk the woodlands of Zyathé, but few have seen the wicked monstrosities for themselves. Or so they think! If you’ve ever encountered one of the monstrous Creepers, you know there’s no telling them from the surrounding branches and briers until they start moving and open those wicked, glowing eyes. Now, with the hateful fury that usually defines a Bramble Creeper...

Ancient Days   “Did you see those stones on the side of the road just outside? Strange, aren’t they? Seem out of place. Well, that’s cause they are. You couldn’t tell it anymore, but long ago, before the Woe, before the Etherns, before whoever came before them, those stones were a temple and the town that surrounded it. The Halflings built them, can you believe that? They were here in Verdestia before any of the rest of us, and it seems they were more ambitious without taller folk around. You have to go nearly two hundred miles south into Andvalla to find other stones like those; the...

The New Queen   “Such a shame about old Queen Altrena, she was like a mother to all of Andvalla. Best Queen they’ve had in decades, really restored the trust of the common people in their rulers. Nothing like her daughter Altreva. Some say it was her that did in the old Queen but bad as she is, I don’t think she murdered her own mother. Truth is, Altrena was getting on in years, and I heard it was an open secret among the royal servants that she was fighting a number of conditions. Apparently they had to use a lot of makeup, and sometimes even body doubles, to keep up appearances at the...

Blood in the Streets   “You ever been down south, young’un? ‘Tis a strange place for being just across the border. Old, real old. The current monarchy has reigned for over three hundred years, but it’s only the latest that’s claimed the land called Andvalla. There’s been such a place for almost a thousand years, going back to the real bad times right after the Woe swept across the world. What’s more, many of the noble houses down there claim descent from the Ethernic governors that ruled that area for, well, who knows how long before that, and some of them even have the proof to back...
