Shaerrawedd (Elder Speech: Shaerra's Child) is a ruined elven palace which lies in the forests of Kaedwen. The elves themselves destroyed it after their second clash with humans to prevent them from building a city on the foundations as they had with so many other cities. At its heart is a rose bush covered with beautiful white-lilied flowers. Drops of silver glisten on the petals. They were Aelirenn's flowers, who was known as the White Rose of Shaerrawedd.

In front of them, as far as the woods allowed them to see, rose smoothly hewn blocks of granite and marble with blunt corners worn away by winds, decorated with patterns long leached out by the rains, cracked and shattered by frost, split by tree roots. Amongst the trunks' broken columns flashed white, arcades, the remains of ornamental friezes entwined with ivy, and wrapped in a thick layer of green moss.

Notes Edit

  • The name is likely a nod to the famous Sherwood Forest; the name formed of Old English elements scir (bright, clear, shire) and wudu (wood), and thus being "bright forest". Word wedd is Elder Speech of child.
