Council of Thorns
The Council of Thorns was an ancient Druidic circle, the members of which faced the unstoppable orc horde in 4237 AR in the Hold of Belkzen and martyred themselves to protect what is now known as the Ghostlight Marsh. The Druids opposed the devastation the orcs were wreaking on the land. When they were finally forced back to the swamp between the Flood Road and the River Esk, they sacrificed themselves in a bloody ritual.
A common rumor says that Silvermane is the only survivor of the Council of Thorns. He is Janekfan ‘s grandfather on her mother’s side; from what her mother told her as a young elf, she tells you it’s more than a rumor—he is indeed the last surviving Council member. From what the Trunaun Council of Defenders knows, Silvermane has resided on the hill protecting the vital Hopespring since before Trunau was founded.
