So when the Elfin Lords of Acker Woods meet in council and they are deadlocked on any decisions they always turn to the Old Man in the Woods. For centuries he has stood for wisdom, guidance and knowledge, always ready to give advice to those who seek. The Lords know that his advice will be true and right. It will always be just and fair.
Patiently he waits, often dozing until someone comes to seek his wisdom and knowledge. The birds come and rest on his head, the deer nibble at the ferns that keep him cool. He listens to the howl of the coyotes, the screech of the owl and dreams of bygone days when the woods was young and so was he. And so the days pass. The Elfin Lords come. He is content.
