The Thousand Breaths
The dense woodlands in the shadow of the Branthlend Mountains have been known as Thousand Voices (or the Forest of Breath) for as long as the rivers in these regions have been ruled by kings. Yet these kings did not name the woodland—it earned this name long before humanity came to this region, for the woodlands grow in a region where the boundaries between this world and the First are thin. On the far side of reality lies the forest realm of Thousandbreaths, a deadly,
beautiful, and hideous tangle ruled by the nymph Nyrissa. The influence of Thousandbreaths
infected the dreams and idle thoughts of the first to settle Thousand Voices long ago, and that
inf luence is felt today in the similar names given to the woodland.
The Thousand Breaths was uprooted from the First World by the Order of the Broken Arrow. The glades that made up the realm now exist in the Material Plane in the forest of a Thousand Voices.
