Scosglen is the name given to the region of untamed wilderness in the far north of the eastern lands. It is bordered by the forbidding Frozen Sea to the north, and the sprawling Dry Steppes to the south. These thickly forested, verdant lands are the home of the druids, a people who departed the lands of Mount Arreat long ago, and for ages a culture devoted to oneness with their natural environment.
This oneness is manifested in the druids’ near miraculous ability to take on the forms of great bears or wolves, and also to bend the very forces that shape the world to their will. It is because of the druids’ bond with- and mastery over- their environment that they were able to remain free of the influence of the mage clans, even in elder days when the power of the clans was feared by all.
The druids disdain for the ‘civilization’ of other lands can be seen in their settlements. Dwellings in Scosglen consist of ancient stone towers known as druid colleges, which are scattered throughout the dense forest. The greatest of these towers, called Tur Dulra, is the heartland of Scosglen’s druidic culture. The druids here, beneath and amongst the boughs of a magnificent oak named Glor-an-Fhaidha, have perfected their bond with the natural world.
