Sylba had been with the dryads
when many of them had come up the Westlands
coast in pretty ships beyond northern Frobozz
. But they moved
away from the pretty water deeper into the great woods, always deeper
and deeper. But when the dryads moved one time, Sylba was too sick.
Such is the dryad way, that they left Sylba behind. Only her
stayed to care for her. But sometime before the end of the First Age of Magic
in 966 GUE, Old Sylba died.
