The black trees of Mourningvale Thicket tell a dire story of death and decay, the whole forest is dark and mostly lifeless, only the occasional red splatter of life in the trees or flowers drawing in the eye of the wanderer.
They say the trees drink in the blood of the unwary traveler, they say the blood red skies are visible only to those with eyes to see such, to see the vision, to see the truth beyond the darkness.
And yet there is life, hopefully clinging to rocks, entwining with the black trunks, trees themselves drawing in what sustenance they can, fighting on despite the conjured darkness.
Conjured, for such darkness is not natural, such complete withering not a part of the Circle. Someone or something is responsible for it and that something might still be present in the Thicket.
Unless of course looks deceive and what might seem as a conjuring might in fact be a cure. Sometimes it takes dark measures to battle the darkness, harsh energies to bring light to the dark red skies, destruction to clear the disease.
Mourningvale Thicket is of course a part of the Fairelands in Fantasy Faire, where most of the look is also from. The dress by Senzafine and the jewelry by House of Rain can both be found in the same Thicket, the collar, headdress and feather hair by Unzipped are located in Asperatus, the dragon flying dwarfin shoulder pet in Hope’s Horizon (they have dwarfin and human sized flying dragons, too) and the special effects in hands are by Solarium in Medhir Woods.
