The Wayhouse at the Crossroads to Everywhere
10th-11th and 11th-12th September 2021
The hamlet of Felin Bach in Goldglades isn’t much to look at, merely a Wayhouse and collection of shelters and buildings in use by the many stridings that pass through Miaren on their way to the outer reaches of the Empire.
However, since 381YE, Felin Bach has picked up another name, one that the locals have embraced – the Crossroads to Everywhere.When the sinkhole known alternately as Lorenzo’s Deep Pockets, Downwold or the Bloody Big Hole collapsed, taking the borders of Miaren, Temeschwar, Hahnmark and Upwold with it, it also removed a section of the ox-cart roads and trods. The result has been that the trods next to Felin Bach has become more well…trod, and the place has earned a reputation for chance meetings – many a citizen has found themselves at a table with an old friend or bumping into someone from their past on their way North or South, East or West.
Pull up a seat by the fire or in the wayhouse itself, and perhaps you’ll experience it for yourself.

Within deepest Upwold are rural Hamlets, hidden in the trees amongst the bone white of the birch trees. Things walk the forests, things that are friends and things that aren’t.
This is not Varushka, this is not life and death, this is the Marches, where deals and work and toil and blood are everyday.
Many a Marcher would say “From earth we come to earth we go”.
In the deep woods the phrase is different “From earth we come to her woods we go”
Walk the Longest Path

It has been a long Autumn and Winter; the war on nearly every front continues apace, and there is no end of requests of support from every corner of the Empire. But regardless, the old march must go on… We know that better than any.
The trods must be walked, and if the road leads to a steading with a roaring fire and a well stocked mead hall, all the better. There is talk that the Voice of the Nation Idwyn Splitroot is staying in the nearby steading of Dol Delyn, and hosting a night of Songs and Stories while she’s there. The locals steadings have also requested a few extra spears to deal with banditry and the like – surely not a problem that the heroes of the Empire can’t fix?
Walk the trods, keep the paths safe, and celebrate the culture of our Nation. Practically a holiday.
