12.3.4 Village of Eleusis
Bound by communal life to the earth, and forsaking the ramparts of traditional brick cities, the Village of Eleusis is home to the forestal Houses. No walls surround it, as the defenders prefer to use the natural camouflage that comprise it to protect those who call the village home. Wandering peddlers supplement the communal life of the village. Bakers, candle makers, forgers, and glassblowers make the village lively as they hawk their wares to the inhabitants of Eleusis. What fuels Eleusian beliefs is a deep desire to protect the forest and those who love it. Eleusis is a community for all forest folk; a place where they can relax in safety and camaraderie. It is a village which exists solely for those who devote themselves to Nature, and desire to be a bigger part of it. Sitting in the treetops and stretching under the ground, Eleusis does not impose itself on the forest which surrounds it, but rather, it exists in harmony with its surroundings. It has no wall, no normal guards which patrol it. Instead, the very trees will come alive should its villagers be attacked as the treekin, dryads, and Tsol'aa archers who regularly visit respond to offenders. "River, forest, sky And ye with Nature at heart Come together here"
