It was a peaceful summer day when Golgir set off to do his work for the day. But much to his surprise and that of his fellow loggers this time the trees hit back!
Golgir's endWhen the axe first hit the tree, the awakened tree felt pain like they had never felt before. Without thought, they smacked the being that had made such a wound on it, and send it flying across the forest, until it impacted on another tree.
Golgir is dead!
What followed was absolute chaos. Some of the loggers jumped into action and started attacking the tree, while others started moving Golgir's body outside of the forest.
Who awakened the trees!?A sprite in need was lovingly accommodated in the grove of trees a couple of weeks before the incident. As a reward, the sprite decided to do something nice for the trees once they were feeling better. Over the next few days, the sprite started awakening the trees that had helped them, and then, set off to continue their journey. Did they know, or care, about the consequence of their actions? Who knows...

Wise and unwise decisions were made...
A matter for the druidsAfter some casualties on both the trees and the loggers' side, both side retreated: the awakened trees further into the forest, the people into their village. Upon hearing the tales of what happened, the village leader realized that this was not something they could help with.
We must call for the Lodge! This is no matter that we can deal with. We need someone who can talk the ways of nature, and understand them. This is a matter of the forest, and the druids of the lodge will surely want to avoid further bloodshed.
Demuli's dispositionDemuli set off with two people to help her in her travels into the lake where the Lodge druids were known to spend a lot of time. After discussion with the druids, Demuli sent her assistants back to the village, for the Lodge insisted she had to go speak with the harmed trees herself.
Now I remember why we never talk to The Lodge. These otter loving, water frolicking, tree-hugging druids are out of their minds. I have to apologize to the trees!? Either way... I'll do it as long as those damn walking trees stay out of our forest! Demuli's inner thoughts
The lost village leaderBut Demuli never came back from her visit to The Lodge. The druids negated all responsibility in the matter and said they did not know where Demuli was. They insisted they kept their part of their deal, as evidenced by the lack of walking trees in the forest. They left Demuli with the other trees if she did not want to come back... who were they to force her to return to the village? The truth behind Demuli's disappearance
Demuli could not keep it together and was utterly rude to the druids. The Lodge conversed with the awakened trees and they all agreed Demuli needed some time out. Thus, they transformed Demuli into a tree, so that she may grow to understand the ways of the forest. Once she does, The Lodge will transform her back and send her on her way to the village.
