Queen's Grove

From Paravia Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Queen's Grove is a location deep in the free wilds where Athera's mysteries are sacrosanct, comparable to the King's Glade. The presence of either a King's Glade or a Queen's Grove in a High Kingdom commemorates the gender of the individual ancestor, first confirmed by the Fellowship as founder of their royal lineage.[1]

Only the sanctioned heir to a High Kingdom is entitled to visit the Grove in their kingdom, where they would petition the Paravians to answer the realm's needs. For example, an heir to the s'Ellestrion family line would have the right to travel to the Queen's Grove in Atwood.
