by Bruce R. Cordell
The Verdant Silence is a furtive martial order that appears to safeguard natural forests and Feywild crossings from corrupting influences. The secretive group, whose innermost membership has never been disclosed, seems generally benign to those of good heart, though a few stories suggest otherwise. Most believe the lodge sets itself against anything that seeks to disrupt the forest's heart, especially those things that threaten to spill into the Feywild. However, they expend much more effort in opposing disruptions that are in any way tainted by aberration. See the Verdant Silence ranger build and the verdant silence weapon in this month's Class Acts.
Adventuring rangers who wish to learn more of the Verdant Silence are advised to seek the forest's center, walk quietly and calmly into its green embrace, and then await the Masters.
