Forest of Forgotten Times



Driven by a desire to explore the forests in search of new plants and study their properties, I had undertaken some research in the various manuscripts and volumes that I had stored in my workshop, with the idea of being a little selective in my expedition for the day. From page to page, I familiarised myself with the various remarkable forests of the vast surrounding worlds. One in particular caught my eye: a remote forest where visitors were rare...

The reported rumours spoke of the oddities that befell the explorers, who had seen creatures there that had been forgotten for a long time. Other accounts mentioned meteorological anomalies encountered along the way, and others - although concomitant - seemed to describe very different forests. That was all it took to arouse my curiosity. Gathering my usual belongings and adding a few extra artefacts as a precaution, I used the keys hanging from my belt to open a portal in one of the arches of my workshop.


As soon as I arrived, I was struck by the astonishing diversity that reigned here. The trees, each more majestic than the next, seemed to stretch skywards in unison, their intertwined branches forming a natural dome above me. Advancing gradually, cracking a few branches of dead wood under my feet, it didn't take me long to notice that, where I was standing, two seasons seemed to be living side by side. In the south, bright flowers seemed to greet the birdsong that filled the air, while the sun's rays, filtering through the leaves, created dancing patterns on the moss-covered surroundings. At the same time, the ground around me was covered in autumn-coloured leaves. Looking into the distance, I noticed traces of frost, making the trees sparkle like crystals radiating the light of the sun. Intrigued, I set off in search of plants whose special characteristics might interest me.


As the day progressed, I couldn't help noticing that, contrary to what I had thought, each area seemed to have its own temporality. It was possible to observe the seasons changing rapidly in some places, while the neighbouring environment seemed to change very slowly. This is certainly why some of the stories mentioned the presence of mythical creatures or specimens of extinct plants, which could provide useful new ingredients for my workshop.


After a day of exploring and gathering, I headed back to my home, determined to use the various elements I had found in my next creations. After all, this forest contained a similar magic to the one in my dragon eggs, containing themself the memory of immemorial places and times.



This collection is composed of 4 medium-sized eggs, 2 of which have a different scale orientation, and one larger egg.


The shop will be updated on 14 June at 9pm.
