The village before them was made up of various sized buildings on the meeting of two valleys, the buildings in this village like in many others seemed to grown from the ground itself and were covered with vine thatched roofs.
The pair spotted the elf had who guided them, standing at the centre of the village speaking to another elf, which looked over at them as they approached Hunter smirked as he recognized the elf as Velendria.
Velendria like all elves had youthful appearance, but her brown eyes much like Hunter's made her look older than she appeared. Velendria's hair was long and blonde and kept in tail; she came just short of Hunter. However, this did not stop her looking very intimidating when she wanted to.
Velendria like other rangers always wore her traditional armour, it was brown and green in colour so it matched with the trees around them, as captain Velendria's armour was a sleeveless chest piece and fingerless gloves.
“Your late,” she said as Hunter got closer, “but I am very glad to see you my friend,” she then bowed her head slightly as Hunter did in return, “Glendale is trouble and..."
“How can this place be in trouble?” Ozwin asked looking up at her, “seriously it is an invisible village...why is the village invisible?"
“Ozwin remember what I told you about the elves and dwarves," Hunter said quietly as he gestured to the elves along the edges of the valley, "but perhaps Velendria can explain the shrouding to you?”
"Certainty,” she said then looked down at Ozwin “in order to protect our people during a time if war, our ancestors once masters of magic developed these," Velendria gestured to the crystals that sat on a pillar behind her.

“Trolls huh that’s interesting,” Hunter said as he looked up at the crystal, “but how are and they getting past the shrouding?”
“That too is a mystery and a worry to many smarter than I,” Velendria replied looking up at the crystal, “ok you two should see Faulkner he has being expecting you,” she looked over at Hunter, “don’t ask because I don’t know, go see what he has for you and then come find me?”
“How the blazes do someone know we are coming before we do?" Ozwin said as he looked up at Hunter, “so where does he live anyway?”
Hunter began scratching his chin as he tried to recall where Faulkner lived, and he began looking around at the huts around him.
Velendria must have noticed the lost expression on his face as she then chuckled and said, “he lives over there,” as she pointed at a single story hut behind them, “now if you’ll excuse, I need to speak with my rangers.”
“Thank you,” said Hunter bowing his...
