Search for the Splintered Goddess: Auril, the FrostMaiden

Welcome back to the archives in the depths of The Magic Tavern. Last week we deep dived into the lore of the Unseelie monarch, the Queen of Air and Darkness. In an unexpected trap, the unnamed Fey sister of Titania was corrupted by the mysterious Night Diamond. This strange artifact not only took her physical form, but it turned her against her sister and the Seelie Court and drove her to steal the ‘treasures of the Arcana’. She now holds court of her own in either another part of the Feywild or, as older editions state, in Pandemonium.

Forgotten Lore: Legacy of the Queen of Air and Darkness

What starts here will probably continue into a series of articles; laying out an investigation I did when studying the varying courts of the Fey. It was not my intention to get stuck down the rabbit hole of this particular Fey Goddess, but, as it is with most of my obsessive research, it was as inevitable as it was impossibly deep. This is the chronicles of a deep dive that I have not returned fully from yet.
