ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral High Elf: Daggers Value 13
Amalien
It makes me sad to see the state of this one. The pages are all torn up, the binding came unraveled and some of the ink is in danger of fading.

ON-icon-stolen-Figurine.png Name Ancient Fertility Totem Value 250
Gabrielle Benele
This looks Ayleid, and given the area it was found, it makes sense. Though, there are a few Bosmer touches to the design that make me think this was some kind of collaboration.
Reginus Buca
As I understand it, these totems in Ayleid culture were only used as a last resort. It wasn't common practice to have one unless a couple was truly having trouble conceiving.
Amalien
There's a theory that Ayleid culture died out in this area because they became unable to reproduce with one another, and mated with the local Bosmer instead. I wonder if this was a gradual shift that was met with resistance?

ON-icon-furniture-Greenshade Map 02.png Name Antique Map of Greenshade Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
This looks like southwestern Valenwood to me. Yes, this must be Greenshade.
Reginus Buca
Yes, this seems quite old. Modern maps of the region evince High Elf influence. Remember, the Dominion has tried to influence Greenshade both culturally and architecturally. This map seems to predate their concerted attempts to do so.
Amalien
Yes, the Bosmer only barely tolerate my people. Hard to blame them. Travelers don't know the true layout of the area because they stick to the cities for trade and travel. This is detailed enough that it might be from the Wood Elves themselves!

ON-icon-quest-Letter 02.png Name Ancestral High Elf: Shoulders Value 13
Amalien
This book looks like it will crumble to dust at the slightest provocation. We should be extremely careful when handling it, if we need to handle it at all!

ON-icon-quest-Tablet 01.png Name Protective Tar Warding Sigil Value 1,000
Reginus Buca
I've never seen a Bosmer sigil like this. It seems like a mark of protection made with graht-oak, but it looks sinister in nature, as though whatever it was protecting the wearer from was a great evil. This would have been worn with serious intent.
Ugron gro-Thumog
The talisman itself is made out of tar. We might be looking at something from the tar-pit burial sites in Ouze where the Bosmer who were rejected from the Green Pact were buried. Some say alive.
Amalien
It's said the spirits of Ouze were restless ... maybe that means they haunted the surrounding area? These could have been talismans the locals wore to ward off ghosts! Or to keep the spirits from crawling back out of those creepy tar-pits.

ON-icon-stolen-Clothing.png Name Den of the Eldest Shoes Value 5,000
Amalien
There are a great many tales about the Eldest and the pilgrims of Valenwood. One describes a mother and her young daughter seeking refuge in the Den of the Eldest. As promised, the mother bequeaths her firstborn to the Eldest in exchange for wisdom. It is said that the daughter stays there for many years until she is a woman grown. She buries her childhood shoes in the soil in hopes they will help the Eldest grow. Could the tales be true? Are these the shoes of the girl raised by the Eldest?

ON-icon-furniture-Greensong Gathering Circle.png Name Greensong Gathering Circle Value N/A
Gabrielle Benele
A Wood Elf ritual cauldron, eh? I find Bosmer magic absolutely fascinating! This is the first Wood Elf spell-focus I've seen, though. I was under the impression they could weave their magic with singing alone. What did they put in this bowl?
Ugron gro-Thumog
I've traveled with enough Wood Elves to know you should never ask what they put in their pots. If I had to guess, I'd say they probably filled it with bones and viscera. Blood to please Hircine, and bones to honor Y'ffre.
Amalien
I'm not so sure, Ugron. I've seen etchings like this in Wood Elf wild patches and sapling-chapels. I think they refer to growth and abundance. They may have filled it with soil and summoned Green Pact relics out of it.

ON-icon-furniture-Branch of Falinesti.png Name Branch of Falinesti Value N/A
Ugron gro-Thumog
Difficult to say with certainty where this throne came from, but I think we can safely assume Wood Elves created it. Even a master carpenter couldn't achieve results like the draping under the seat with conventional tools and methods.
Gabrielle Benele
Too right, Ugron. I spent some time in Elden Root recently, and I saw all manner of Green-wrought marvels there. Only thing that puzzles me is the shade and the grain. It doesn't resemble any of the furniture I saw in Grahtwood.
Amalien
I can explain that easily enough. This seat didn't come from Elden Root. It came from Falinesti--the walking city, and true home of the Wood Elves! Trust me on this one. Once you run your hand over the wide grain of Falinesti, you never forget it.

ON-icon-minor adornment-Star Ring.png Name Symbol of Y'ffre Value N/A
Reginus Buca
The charm itself is small, but it certainly resembles other depictions of Y'ffre—the Forest god of the Wood Elves. Given these hollows on either side of his head, I'd say this is part of a series of charms.
Verita Numida
This looks like Y'ffre, I agree. But his aspect seems far less distant than normal. He appears to be howling, or snarling behind a matted wreath of leaves. That's more than a little unsettling.
Amalien
Perhaps he's unleashing the power of a Wood Elf Wild Hunt! Y'ffre demanded that the Wood Elves keep their shape as part of the Green Pact, but ironically, he allows them to change it again in times of great need. Gods are strange that way.
