I was making the assumption that it was somewhere round or in the Deadlands.
Athas.org people ?????? Any clues ?
Seems like an interesting sorta place !!
|#2nightdruidFeb 19, 2004 6:49:15||Lol, I just noticed it in the timeline yesterday myself I seem to recall seeing something about a tree-artifact in Artifacts of Athas a long time ago, but I have no clue as to its powers. Probably in that product, but don't quote me on that...;)|
|#3KamelionFeb 19, 2004 7:06:52||The Last Tree is in Psionic Artifacts of Athas - it's a huge living artifact from the Blue Age, apparently the last creation of the rhulisti. It's basically the lifeforce of a rhulisti infused into a huge tree.|
The Seventh Tree is probably in SotDL, but no idea what it is. I suppose it's possible that it's a descended from the Last Tree of the Forest Ridge. You could read the timeline as inferring that the Seventh Tree is sentient somehow (it closes the obsidian gate). Anyone familiar with SotDL care to shed some light?
|#4zombiegleemaxFeb 19, 2004 11:00:49||GA Lewis' deadlands project had the Seventh Tree as being a transformed druid or something. Dunno what it actually was in the actual SotDL product though.|

(que dramatic music)
|#7nytcrawlrFeb 19, 2004 15:04:50||The Seventh Tree has its own chapter in SotDL.|
Here is a small preview:
Beneath the obsidian, deeply rooted in the earth buried by the Cataclysm ages past, lie the living remains of a tree of life . Forced away from the surface, the tree has grown beneath the land of the dead, poking tendrils through the surface at seven points. It remained undetected by those who would become defilers again if they knew, until its roots, thick and widespread, reached from one edge of the blackglass to the other.

1--The Last tree is in fact a powerfull living artifact but is also what was part of Sull himself(Sull is the name of the nature-master ) and although it could have been from the Blue Age, I think it was very near the rebith because the brown tide incident was already occuring when Sull and his kin(nearly a thousand) fled to the lands of the forest ridge.
2-- Sull otered words never again heared on Athas while he thrusted his arms into the soil and transformed himself into the said tree. Not fused into one already in existance.
just wanted to clarify things.
|#12Shei-NadFeb 19, 2004 21:43:23||hmm... interesting description in SotDL. Actually, I would have thought the Seventh Tree would have meant there were actually at least 6 more trees... What powers they had however would have been another matter...|

I'm thinking the other 6 didn't survive the catastrophe.
|#14GrummoreFeb 20, 2004 9:00:05||Of course, we can stick with the officiality of SotDL, but as I said, Gerard, in is DLoA project as a very interesting theory about the 7th tree and the 7 trees.|
|#15dawnstealerFeb 20, 2004 10:20:29||From the sounds of it, it's one huge tree with seven roots sticking out.|
|#16nightdruidFeb 20, 2004 10:22:24||Hmmmm....seven trees, seven sorcerer-kings? ;) Wasn't for the dates and deaths of some sorcerer kings, that might be an interesting theory.|
