    Temple of Ehlonna Dereilon (in the Dim Forest. Based on against the giants: the liberation of Geoff)

    Before the coming of the shadow dragon to the village the temple of Ehlonna was the spiritual center of the village. The wood elves also paid homage to Corellon and the other elven gods but the temple holds a special place in the village. It is said that Ehlonna herself blessed the stone temple many years ago when Flann woodmens first made contact with the elves of the forest. The temple was a simple one story stone structure. Tan colored wooden doors with iron worked handles the shape of unicorns greeted travelers up the path to the temple. Inside was the main worship hall. Rows of pews lead the way to the alter and the lectern. Inside the faithful would listen to the glory of the deeds of the Maiden of the Forest. Behind the alter craftsman had contructed a stained glass portrait of the godess and a unicorn. It is said that two arrows used by the godess lay inside the alter. Behind the alter lead the way to the dwelling place of the priests. Here they would store their belongings and the bows which where their main weapons. About 4 priests were stationed at the village, a human one often visiting from outside the forest. Only the most senior priest had his own room. There was no kitchen or dining area, the priests ate with the villagers outside the temple. A small library and a dressing area compleated the inside of the temple. In the back of the temple stood an archery range, here the priests would sponser contests for the faithful in the favorite sport of the godess.

    Adventure seed: CY591 - a High priest of Ehlonna asks a ranger or elf in the party to travel to the village to recover the sacred arrows of the godess. There is a 50% chance they will encounter a mature adult female shadow dragon in the ruins of the village. Shadows lurk in the village as well. The PC's will be well rewarded by the priest should they fulfill the task.

    Red Dragon: Based on Dragons of the Flanness.

    High in the Southern Crystalmists near the border of sterich, in a long abandoned dwarf hold lies the wyrm Vesmonstran. On a pile of gold that rivals the treasure house of Ivid, for hundreds of years he has slept. Solitary and greedy, he fits the temperment of his kind. In the days when the Kingdom of Keoland was young he raided keep after keep, gathering gold and silver to satisfy his greed. No warrior or wizard was strong enough to defeat him or wise enough to find his lair high in the Crystalmists. Never bothering to have mated, he counted coins alone in the deep. After gathering his great hoard it is said that the dragon entered a deep sleep, for hundreds of years he has slept undistrubed by gold seeking adventurers. His pride has made him feel safe inside the stone cavern he calls home. The dwarfs of the valley have left him alone. It is said that his hold includes several magic tomes of the Suel, a golden magical chalice of Heironeous, and a sacred ax of Clanngeden.

    Possible Adventure seeds: However from underneath the Oerth, the dark elves have discovered his lair. What role does the dragon play in this? With the defeat of the giants in Sterich will the wyrm see a chance to see greater glory once again? How will the dwarfs of sterich, shut inside their fortresses react to this? Is the fragile leadership of the country ready to stand united against the threat? Will his pride and greed be his undoing? Is their a female red that seeks to produce his spawn? Is he lustful after this long slumber? Is HE the one seeking to spawn?

    The temple of Ehlonna suffers, as most D&D temples do, of being too generic. Substitute the iconography, and this could be a Catholic church. What sacred texts would be in a library of Ehlonna? Now that would have made a good article.

    The dragon, as typical of 3E D&D, is ridiculously over-powerful.

    Nifty, short ideas. Easily adaptable for most GM's.

    For my campaign, I'd make the Temple a wooden structure, perhaps with open windows. The great stained glass I would replace with an intricately carved wooden "trellis". Open to the outside, it would depict the scene as described above. I do like the idea that the priests who tend the temple take their meals with the common folk of the village.

    For the dragon, sure, he's powerful. Which would explain why the dwarves leave him alone. The ancient tales warn them well against disturbing the slumber of so mighty a beast.

    I think these are good adventure seeds which I can adapt to my own campaign.  I like the above suggestions for making Elohnna's temple more woodsy, too. ;)

    The first warm days of louis vuitton outlet [] spring are generally a good time to size up the new spring fashion, but people don't seem to have their acts together yet — least of all the clerks in the Barneys shoe salon. The other day I was browsing when a young man in a bright louis vuitton online store [] green checked shirt approached and asked if he could give me any information about the Saint Laurent shoe I was cradling in my hands. That vintage louis vuitton luggage [] was worn by a Kardashian maybe? What? Instead, I moved away from the dude as quickly as I could. Was he really a salesman? In a bright green checked shirt and slacks? The thought crossed my warped mind that maybe cheap louis vuitton travel bags [] he was the boyfriend of a customer who, to pass the time in a more pleasurable manner, was pretending to help fashion-addled women. I could see Seth Rogen in the movie role. When I got louis vuitton wallet outlet [] to Bergdorf's shoe salon, which was agreeably mobbed with demanding young women with shoe boxes spilling open at their feet, I felt better. At least the sales people looked like sales people, and not bad boyfriends. AT 8 p.m. on a rainy Louis Vuitton Belt [] Tuesday last month, Salman Rushdie strode into Junoon, a Flatiron district restaurant where 90 people awaited his arrival, some sipping chamomile-infused Louis Vuitton Speedy 35 N41535 [] vodka cocktails. Mr. Rushdie, the Indian-born British author, was the guest of honor at a dinner sponsored by Dom Pérignon and Booktrack, the maker of an app that synchronizes music to e-books. Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM outlet [] was the second party that night for Mr. Rushdie, 64, who earlier in the evening could be found chatting with Diane Von Furstenberg at a downtown show for the artist Ouattara Watts, hosted by Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, one of his Louis Vuitton Alma bag [] gallerists. At Junoon, after plates of baby eggplant and lamb were scraped clean, Mr. Rushdie grabbed an iPad and read aloud his short story In the South, which louis vuitton totally PM [] appeared in The New Yorker in 2009 and which Booktrack had scored to original music played by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. After he finished, Mr. Rushdie approached a long-legged, slim brunet woman sitting at the end of a long Louis Vuitton Delightful Monogram PM [] table. How did I do? Mr. Rushdie asked. She cooed over the recitation, and he thanked her for coming. As he walked away, she turned to a fellow Louis Vuitton Totally GM N51263 [] partygoer. It's nice to see him out, isn't it? she said. Perhaps a more apt question would be: where haven't New Yorkers seen Mr. Rushdie lately? Nearly 25 years after the publication of The Satanic Verses, which forced Mr. Rushdie into hiding Louis Vuitton Artsy MM outlet [] for a decade after Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini condemned the novel and issued a fatwa calling for his death, Mr. Rushdie has emerged as an indefatigable louis vuitton factory [] presence on the New York night-life scene.
