The continued on a for a great distance, it's smooth stones made for easy travel, despite the age of the road. No weeds or grass sought to disrupt the stones, and no root of tree buckled the stone. Perhaps it was the skill of the dwarven engineers, or perhaps a construct of fae magic, either way the path was clear.
It was nearly evening when the first sight of something other than tree or road came into sight. There was an arch over the road, two vertical stones, the tops rough hewn, but the lowest five to six feet were smoothed by the passage of many hands. Redwick would recognize the Dwarven Gate from tale alone, from a time when the elves and the dwarves had much commerce between them, and both grew rich from it.
Hroom-Here is the Gate...
Watcher said, stopping outside of the arch. His great size prevented him from passing through the gate himself. If he tried, he would crack and break many branches, and possibly damage the gate itself.
Beyond the gate there was a raised hill with a ring of concentric stone monoliths, and more arches. The stones were deeply ingraved with glyphs and runes of the elves, tales and histories and other things that the elves sought to remember in their nigh immortal lives.
It-Hroom-has been a pleasant journey. Our paths-Haar-branch here.
Even as Watcher was speaking, the others were able to spy a trio of elves approaching, one wearing a long green cape and mantle. The elf had a handsome face, but bore a long scar from his right temple to the point of his chin, coming perilously close to his right eye. He wore his white hair in a flat braid down his back, and was adorned only with a small thin circlet of silver.
"Well come, Watcher, it has been some time since you last stirred. I was not expecting you again for another century." The elven lord spoke. Watcher only nodded his great head.
"I was told of your coming, the others become excited when one of the ancients stir, and brough me word as quickly as their limbs would bear them. They told me also of your companions. All of you are welcome in the Elfhame for as long as you care to stay." He said in traditional elven greeting
