A young elf with a mad bent
Wearing a mossy black cloak, Landruel the wood elf Druid first greeted the party in the solitary elvish outpost Et’willan Il’arvathu. In the guise of aiding them, he tricked the party into becoming trapped in a Drow ruin. A worshipper and founder of the mysterious religion Boughshade, he sought to bring ruin to the world in a twisted pursuit of an elvish ideal: turning the barren land back to full tree coverage, but Landruel did this by petrifying the townsfolk into tree life.
The party brought these plans to a swift end, but killing him in the process they were unable to learn more about the origins of his motives.
