The Pilgrimage

Back in 1998, a few like minded friends of Yew met at the Community Center and came out with the idea of a Pilgrimage to the Eight Shrine of the Virtues. From the original party of about five or six pilgrims, the group grew larger and larger. I remember at one point, when we departed from Vesper, counting not less than 20 pilgrims on the road.

The Lodges

Early 1999. The Shadow Rangers, with the help of Rangers of Heart, started a project of creating several lodges in the wildlands. These were intended as shelters and safe houses for the hunters and travellers. The project even got the attention of noble patrons from distant villages, who donated some buildings to the cause. Here are the paintings of some of the lodges.

The Wolf Lodge Wolf Lodge. Anatoly Kryczech, of the Rangers of the Heart,  allowed his house to become a Rangers Lodge. A gathering of Shadow Rangers and Rangers of Heart was held at the inauguration ceremony. The Lodge was located in the extreme north of the Justice Peninsula. Due to unfortunate inconvenients, this lodge is no more functional. OakLodge.jpg (77234 byte)Oak Lodge. This is the Shadow Rangers main lodge, where our guildstone is located. It is at the borders of the Deep Forest, east of Yew.

 

Glen Town HallThe Lodges project was sponsored by several patrons. The Glen Village allowed their Town Hall to become a safe house for the travelers and the rangers. Lord Wracu, the village leader, did much more for the cause of the rangers: he donated yet another house deed and also provided us with several sets of armors and weapons in the following months. Long live the Glen Village!  Bear Lodge Bear Lodge.
Willow LodgeWillow Lodge. The most recent lodge the rangers built in the Deep Forest, east of Yew. The building was donated by Finn the Wandering Healer. Eagle LodgeEagle Lodge. Very near to Yew and its Abbey, this lodge is  a donation from Dove the Healer of Yew.
