Lankelly — aka the Wood
Defining Description Edit
Lankelly, called the Wood by some, is a valley that holds the sacred grove in its heart. It is where all the 'roads' meet.
- “You need only walk it,” he said. “That’s all it takes. Walk it with intent. An old straight track ...there for those who know to see it. Like a Gypsy road—un Romano drom. It will take you home. . . . Where all roads meet. Jacca calls it Lankelly—because of the sacred grove in the heart of the valley—but I just think of it as the Wood.” ~ Elderee

They upheld a fragile balance between light and dark, order and chaos, while at the center of the web lay a sacred grove in that valleythat Elderee had called Lankelly." ~ "Romano Drom" — Dreams Underfoot
