From the introduction:
Rystalmyth was built by the wood elves of Rystalwood in response to the repeated orc invasions that regularly poured down from the lands of Thar and the mountains to the north. Commissioned by Coronal Tanivh, in the year ‐210 DR 5 years after the latest horde cause untold death and destruction to the forest, the last redoubt of Rystalwood was to serve as a haven for those persecuted by the dark powers of the north, and by those who sought a peaceful life free of war and strife. With this aim in mind, the last Selu’taar of the realm along with Ulaier the Silent, the Srinshee, and various Selu’taar from Cormanthor and Eaerlann, firstly grew the tree city around the oldest Weirwood in the forest. From this point they sanctified an area 4 miles in diameter to be the home of last resort for the wood elves of the forest and those who chose peace and communion with nature over the pursuit of power. The construction of the city took another 5 years as the elves worked in close partnership with the inhabitants of Yrlaancel to build a self sustaining land that would shelter the elves from the worst of the depredations of goblin‐kin, giants and drow. The end result was a shining example of elven architecture that combined high magic and nature in a seamless blend. On mid‐winters night, under a frosty star‐filled sky the mythal was laid and the city was named Rystalmyth, last redoubt of the wood elves.
