    hmmm so close to Edhelion, why not in there? be nice to see that place used for SOMEthing. :( or even the smaller ruins outside edhelion, where elves/dwarves start.

      I think the place is simply too small to host hundreds of visitors. And since it’s a place for contemplation I would also think it’s also a bit inappropriate. Maybe a nice elven concert would fit there very well. Maybe The Shades or Andunie would be the right ones to chose Edhelion for one of their concerts one day.
