Across The Land
The evil Gulthias Tree
The evil Gulthias Tree, tended by the crazed druid, Belak the Outcast. The illustration shows two depressions where Sir Braford and Sharwyn were “accepted” and changed to supplicants.
After being captured in the levels above the Sunless Citadel, the warrior known as “Fighter” was captured by Durnn and his goblins, nursed to health by Belak, and eventually bound to the Tree to begin being accepted as a supplicant. Before being fully “absorbed”, the Party was able to despatch Belak and his retinue and rescue Fighter, cutting him from the tree, albeit suffering from the ill effects of being partially absorbed.
