What happened to Yew?

    I used to play several years ago. I started out in Yew. Then, at one point, it became a swamp. Now I've started again and I wandered by and see it's a town again. I was just wondering what's the story on this? Thanks.

    OOC: Yew was reverted to a town with the release of the Mondain's Legacy expansion due to popular demand

    IC: The elves of Heartwood who live above the treetops of Yew restored the land with their nature magics when they returned to Sosaria

    OOC: This is the basic plotline. However, the exact details played out differently on every shard thanks to the creativity of the Event Moderators. For example...

    IC: On Europa, the druid Father Antos and a Yew girl named Glade opened a rift in the middle of the swamp to start the healing process. The Commander of the Royal Guard Jordan Jurrel then used a sword recovered from Minax, the Brightblade, to channel energy into the rift and complete the healing.

    Of course, you've probably never left Fel - it was Trammel Yew that got turned into a swamp for 5-6 years.
