Mithrendain, Citadel of the Feywild
by Rodney Thompson
The Feywild is understood by few denizens of the world, and visited only by those with knowledge of the plane and the will to make the dangerous journey. But to the eladrin, the Feywild is home. And Mithrendain is one of the last bastions of light in a Feywild that is proving increasingly hostile to the eladrin and their allies. Visit this citadel of the eladrin, and learn some of their coveted fighting techniques in this article.
Deep in the Feywild, beyond the swirling residuum storms of the Plains of Valdrennai, stands one of the most magnificent cities ever constructed by the eladrin: Mithrendain. The city’s name is derived from the elf phrase “wall of the fortress,” but the word has become synonymous with the beauty and longevity of the eladrin. Home to nearly 40,000 people, almost all of them eladrin, Mithrendain is a beautiful city resplendent with soaring towers and graceful architecture. In addition to its proper name, Mithrendain is often referred to as the Autumn City, since most of its towers are colored like autumn leaves, with yellow, gold, and bronze being common.
