Of Kings and Dragons
Grungir Forest is rife with weak points in the barrier between Golarion and the First World, as well as a few outright rifts that allow travel between the two. The most powerful of these rifts, which is known as Forestheart, is a darkling glade surrounded by giant trees, gnarled with age. The center of Forestheart is marked by a preternaturally calm and clear pool. By observing the reflections in the water’s surface, a visitor can look into the First World. The visitor can move the focus so that she may see any part of the First World. Leaping into the pool transports the visitor to whatever place it was ref lecting, but the trip is one-way—the sojourner must find a different way back. All of Grungir’s gateways to the First World are guarded by fey, and Forestheart is no exception—a nymph named Imavajana guards the pool and controls its destinations. Those who would seek to use Forestheart to enter the First World must first please the capricious and demanding nymph, who is fond of sending petitioners on grueling quests far beyond the borders of Grungir Forest.
