""The Spies of Lightelf is the second booklet in our series of works titled "The Wilderness Project". Each booklet covers an area of wilderness in the Lands of the City States in great detail: any villages in the area have various establishments and prominent NPCs listed, history and way of life of the people briefly described, and a list of interesting events and encounters for passing adventurers....
This particular booklet contains maps of twenty-two five-mile hexes in the area of the Wood of the Gnomes, including the Gnomes' village of Lightelf and the village of Palewood, inhabited by Grey Elves."
So we're going to pick back up from yesterday's blog post here & dive head long into the Wood of the Gnomes, including the Gnomes' village of Lightelf and the village of Palewood, inhabited by Grey Elves. Spies of Light Elf By Bryan Hinnen isn't so much of a module as it is an adventure tool kit to detail the area around the village of Lightelf itself.
So the gnomes move into the lands of the Gnome Woods & take over the old Grey Elven works. They find the Elven elemental magical knowledge & practice it. For Castles & Crusades this comes from the Castles & Crusades Adventurers Spellbook
The Gnomes themselves are escapees from the Fae courta. So the gnomes' pass their knowledge onto the local Neolithic & Bronze age style people's magus or shamans to give the human tribes a fighting chance. The wilderness is rife with monsters just look at Spies of Light Elf's encounter tables.
