The Blood Wood
THE BLOOD WOOD¸ HOME TO THE BLOOD ELVES OF BARSAIVE...
A young elf stood before me¸ his pain-wracked face and body covered with thorns. He knelt down and opened his arms as if to embrace me. Dark red blood¸ rich with life¸ seeped down each thorn and gathered at the tip. The drops swelled almost to bursting¸ then fell to the ground.
