Chronicles of Alaria
Brightwood is a forest of pine and similar like trees. It takes up a good chunk of the The Maser Highlands, and is home to your normal forest-dwelling creatures. Once every four years, during that year’s fall season, the trees change color and shed their needles and leaves. These needles and leaves each have a distinct taste when ground down into spices. One leaf, which is quite popular, tastes like fully cooked beef, while another tastes of garlic. These spices are some of the most popular in Embyur and are the main export of the Saurian Collective.
There is also a rumor that during one of the “Changing Autumns”, there is one child born to the people that live in the woods. Regardless of race, the child is born with the ability to change their skin color at will, and eventually, can develop it into a chameleon-like ability.
