Relkath’s Foot (Small City, 5,080):
Relkath’s Foot is built around four tall, majestic trees that rise more than 100 feet out of the forest’s thick canopy into the open light. These are said to have sprung from the buried foot of an ancient god, Relkath of the Numberless Branches. Relkath, along with other mysterious powers who predate the elves, is said to be sleeping beneath the forest’s soil, someday to awaken when the people of the Yuirwood need their ancient gods again. Many inhabitants of Relkath’s Foot live on the ground, constantly on the lookout for invaders or strangers of any kind. The rest make their homes on wooden platforms in the massive trees and the surrounding forest, all strung together by a complex network of ropes and suspension bridges.
Outsiders are rarely permitted in the boughs of the trees. A merchants’ square is set up on the ground near the four trees, and a pair of inns flank the town to the north and south. Travelers are welcome as long as they respect the natives and their way of life. The town’s militia is active in the region, frequently practicing ambushes and spying on passersby. Human rangers often seek training from the foresters of Relkath’s Foot.
