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.
Pilgrims gather at the Yew Abbey. Dove the Healer is giving general
instructions on the route to follow.

Inside, Logan and Jurai are talking about the ideal of Justice. Rumors are
that Jurai was given some special and blessed item by Logan in this
occasion, something representing the Virtue of Justice.
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.
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.
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.
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
The most recent lodge the rangers built in the Deep Forest, east of Yew.
The building was donated by Finn the Wandering Healer.
Very near to Yew and its Abbey, this lodge is a donation from Dove
the Healer of Yew.
