Chronicles of Acledala
The Life Well
The Life Well is a sacred place in the glades of The Republic of Dergath. It is a place of intense natural magic and is said to be the sorce of all rives of Meyan.
Shortly after the appearance of the Plague Star Priest Maxwell of Nestraden, the first to become ill and contract the disease to be known as the great plague, was thrown into the Life Well by ex-paladin turned fanatic Kira. This effectively despoiled the water source of the world, and shortly afterwards the plague began to spread like wild fire in the inexplicable absence of the Heroe’s of the realm (see waking dreams).
