The castle gardens:


The gardens of Vangaard are famous through out the five lands. In fact, the gardens of Vangaard include a part of each of the five lands. There are trees, flowers, fruits and vegetables from all over Amaroth and even small mounds of earth from each land.
  When you walk into the gardens you first pass two stone wells which provide the irrigation here and fresh water to the Castle.
  Walking along the long cobblestone center path, you see on either side, rows and rows of vegetables.
On the far right are a row of white beehives. The bees buzzing excitedly as they build honeycombs. The beekeepers wearing protective clothing as they go about gathering the golden sweets.
  Beyond the vegetables rows are the fruit trees. Apples, oranges, pears and others. A colorful and enticing sight.
Then come the flower gardens which are flawlessly maintained by the zealous chief gardener, Broham, The little old man somehow keeps the flowers structured and wild, elegant and free, all at once. The fragrances of the thousands of flowers appealing and not overwhelming.

Then come two identical fish ponds to either side of the path. This is one of the castle children’s favourite spots. They skip stones off the ponds, fish and sometimes even go swimming. Sometimes even the adults of the castle use these ponds (in the summer).

Last but not least comes the most hallowed of places in Vangaard;

The Glen of Heroes

2007-02-19 [Lady of Lore]: Ellayne straightens up and smiles at Darian. "Well hello there my Lord Darian. I am well, the gradens have greatly rejuvinated my spirit. I see that things have been quite busy around here. The fame of Vangaard has spread through the realm quickly."

2007-02-19 [Darian Hawke]:
*Reaches into his pocket and throws to Vera a small peice of dried meat.*
I have not forgotten you Vera. Enjoy.
I dont have much time to spend here. I must ride to Arus and meet a boat coming in from Kayblin.
*Breathes in deeply the fresh air*

There is much work waiting for us. While you were all sleeping last night I rode out with fifty men-at-arms to track down a band of raiders from Askiliad who had attacked a small farm closer to the border.
You soon will be joining me on these excursions.

2007-02-19 [Lady of Lore]: Ellayne nods, "Always there is work to be done. If you ever require my skills I am at your service Lord."

2007-02-19 [Synsae]: Kael watches Vera launch off Lady Sofia and catches the meat in midair. "Lord Darian, I believe you just made Vera a very happy Falcon by doing that, she'll be best friends with you from now on" he said as Vera gulped down the meat and perched on Darian's shoulder

2007-02-19 [Darian Hawke]: *Pets Vera and ruffles her feathers*
Thank you Lady Ellayne. You soon shall join our ranks.
*Looks at Vera and laughs as she pecks him on his ear then flies back to Kael*

Yes looks like she likes me indeed. I must be going.
Good day to you all.
*Bows lightly and walks out of the gardens*

2007-02-19 [Lady of Lore]: Ellayne smiles and sits down beside the water.

2007-02-19 [Synsae]: Kael laughs and bows to Lord Darian, "Take care"

He pets Vera behind her head as she begins poking him the head with her beak

2007-02-19 [Chrysilla]: Sofia laughs seeing Vera poking Kael and she pets her.
"Well Kael, I had a good time with you. I am in the right mood to study some more magic now, so I'm going to in the commons now." She smiles to him and stands up, ready to leave.

2007-02-19 [Synsae]: Bows to Lady Sofia, "Ok, take care and study well" Kael hugs Lady Sofia goodbye before she leaves to the commons

2007-02-19 [Chrysilla]: She smiles, pets Vera again and leaves for the barracks commons.

2007-03-02 [Chrysilla]: Sofia enters the gardens and stops, inhaling the fresh, perfumed air, then she sits down on a bench. She takes a small, old looking book of her pocket and starts studying the levitation spells.

2007-03-02 [Lady of Lore]: Ellayne walks over, interested in what the people of other realms have by way of books. "Good day to you Sofia, what are you studying so avidly?" she said with a smile.

2007-03-02 [Chrysilla]: Sofia closes her book and puts it next to her.
"Good day to you too, Ellayne, haven't seen you around in a long time. I'm waiting for my powers to recover after the training and I use this time to study some new spells."

2007-03-04 [Lady of Lore]: "Oh well I hope I'm not interrupting. I've been wandering te grounds, familiarizing myself with civilization once again. It's good to be in decent places again." she said with a smila as she gestured with one hand to all of Vangaard.

2007-03-04 [Chrysilla]: "No, you don't interrupt, it's always a pleasure to talk to you. Tell me, if I'm not indiscrete, why do you suggest you have left the civilization for a while?"

2007-03-06 [Lady of Lore]: Ellayne sat beside Sofia. "I travelled through many lands taking records of my of the creatures. I'm a loremaster" she said with a smile "So in order to be sure I'm a good loremaster I had to go and verify legends and myths that my people had recorded. This took me into some deep dark regoins of the world."

2007-03-06 [Chrysilla]: "This sounds so interesting, I always liked to learn about new things. Would you like to tell me more about what you found?"

2007-03-06 [Lady of Lore]: Ellayne smiled, "Where to begin...many a dragon I came across, greebles, great warriors, evil warriors...many months did I spend travelling on my own through techerous territory"

2007-03-06 [Chrysilla]: Sofia was getting more and more curious about everything Ellayne had to say. She moved a little closer and made a gesture saying she was listening and that Lady Ellayne should continue.

2007-03-06 [Lady of Lore]: Ellayne smiled again, "Perhaps it is better I show you as well as tell you." She pulled a carefully wrapped book from her small bag and opened it. The book was old or looked that way, pages frayed at the edges, some even were burned. Others had the look as if they had been soaked at one point. Ellayne opened it to one specific page where there was a few sketches of an elegantly sleek dragon. "Here's one, a paritcularly difficult but worthwhile to track down. An Azure Dragon, quite a beautiful creature. She gave me quite a long chase but eventually she agreed to speak with me. I had studied legends on a great creature that dwelled in the land of Ekrone, more particularly in the waters that had great healing abilities and could summon great stroms if angered. I found her swimming with several schools of fish when she agreed to speak to me. She was very polite, though somewhat impatient and curious but she allowed me to make these sketches of her." 

2007-06-19 [Lady of Lore]: Ellayne pulled out a set of paints that she had made and set upon her small easel a canvas, she mixed the paints carefully and lovingly and began to paint...and as she did she hummed softly to herself.
