The Accressiel Court is a fey court that rules over the Southern Fangwood. It was founded by and is once again ruled by the glaistig Gendowyn.[1][2]

History

The Southern Fangwood has had a history of connections with the First World since before recorded history, when elves settled the forest during the Age of Legend. Gendowyn formed the Accressiel Court and became its queen in -3852 AR, about 150 years after Kellid clans began claiming parts of the woods as their territory; within two years, the clans declared the forest forbidden after rumors of hauntings spread among the tribes.[2]

In -3701 AR, Gendowyn established contact with one of the tribe's chieftains, named Ilba, and negotiated an alliance with him. This agreement would last for more than 6,000 years, until the march of the Whispering Tyrant brought ruin to the Fangwood's doorstep. The alliance was broken when Gendowyn reluctantly decided to abandon the tribes just as they came under assault from the Whispering Tyrant's forces in 3203 AR. Instead of lending their support, the court retreated deeper into the Fangwood and magically hid themselves from the Tyrant's forces.[2]

Years after the Tyrant's imprisonment, and after the Rending shattered dwarven culture in the region, Gendowyn once again reached out to the material world beyond the Fangwood to establish an alliance with the Sky Citadel of Kraggodan. This relationship was cut short by the spread of the Darkblight at the hands of the corrupted dryad Arlantia in 4062 AR. The Accressiel Court failed to contain the blight, and Arlantia imprisoned Gendowyn, leaving Kraggodan to erect stone monoliths in an attempt to contain the blight's spread.[2]

In 4717 AR, Arlantia was killed by Nirmathi militia leaders, and Gendowyn once again rose to take control of the Accressiel Court.[1]

Relationships

Gendowyn now seeks allies to help her deal with the remaining pockets of Darkblight and with the orcs, dragons, and other foes living in the Fangwood that kill the fey on sight. She has established relations with the druids of Crystalhurst and with the Nirmathi Chernasardo Rangers. As these relationships are tenuous at best, the fey queen welcomes any potential allies skilled in negotiation or primal magic.[1]
