So Recently I Found Out A Strange Relation Between The Forgery And The Big Stumps Of Gavel. One Containing The Portal To RoL And The Other Containing The Dark Forest Ultimate Discovery. I Drew A Line Between The 2 On A Map And The Forgery Happened To Be In The Center Of The 2... This Raises Many Questions But What I Think Is Most Important Is The Fact That Dern Could Actually Be A Bigger Role In Gavel Than We Previously Thought. When The Rune Guardians (Probs A Buncha Olm That Found Their Way Into Gavel And Corkus) Combined The Runes, It Wasn't Just Done At Some Random Spot. The Dark Forest Was Still Very Light At The Time. Meaning That The River Island Was Just A Good Spot To Do so. Or as we thought. Both Stumps Had To Be Fully Grown Trees Once. Probably Containing More Powers Then Now. But If Only 1 Tree Has The RoL Portal Then What Was The Other For? This Is When Something Caught My Eye. The Trees In The South Have One Big Bush Of Leaves On Them Made Up Of Several Hundred Tiny Branches, While The Northern Trees Have Around A Dozen Branches With Tiny clumps Of Leaves. The Only Other Trees With This Feature Are Sky And Dernic Trees. Before The Eyeballs Appeared On Dernic Trees They Were Barren. But There Was A Time When SE Had Life Similar To Life In The Rest OF Wynn. But Gavel Wildlife And Magic Never Appears In Wynn. so What Were The SE Trees If They Never Came From Gavel. They Couldn't Have Just Evolved Separately Because The SE climate was identical to The climate in wynn plains. But there is one tree outside of se that can explain this all. If you go a bit north from the emerald trail just before you enter nivla, You find the lava and water tree. it has around a dozen to 2 dozen branches, has small clumps of leaves, and contains magical properties. Se trees must have been the kind that you see near emerald trail but were wiped out either by the meteor that forced to olm to flee or the dernic uprising in se. But these trees have magic. Magic in nature only appears in gavel, so they must have come to gavel. But they didn't. If you look on the map, gavel , Wynn, and corkus look to have been connected like Pangea was in our world. Maro peaks used to be in what is now pirate bay, jofash seems to have been near half moon island, and corkus used to be a elevated plain between the west mountains and the ragni mountains in wynn. if you line it up, it makes sense. the avo mountains line up with the ragni mountains. How does this relate to gavel and magic? well, when the provinces were connected, magic only started to seep into the world from planes of influence. and the old life was still evolving, but still very close to today's life. Magic was able to affect life easier, with some being able to absorb it like quartz does. The se trees are native to modern day gavel, and could take in magic. Explaining why the tree near emerald road is affected by the lava and water, both of which could transport and take in magic very well is. As the continents started to break, as the split shifted a lot of rocks around the world, one rock in what is now the house of twain broke off from the surrounding mountain, creating a river that carved through wynn and gavel before they broke apart. started forming a river from the ocean. creating the rivers of gavel we know today. Seeds from the modern day se trees could now travel along the river and spread to the south. One seedling happened to grow above an underground cave that contained a stream of lava and water, both of which contained magical properties. the constant flow of lava from mt. wynn and the constant supply of water from the surrounding bodies caused a never ending clash of magic between the 2, affecting and supplying the tree above with water, magic, and nutrients. as most of the other trees in emerald trail had their magic decayed and weakened, the lava one stayed magical and was able to supply better and more seeds than the other ones could. it spread its magic retaining ability through underground streams or over mountains and made it's way into se, where the magic trees lay as dernic trees today. With all that relating back to gavel, we can finally get to the main point. The life in the south evolved in a way where magic was retained in a bloodline while the northern trees needed a constant supply of it. the northern trees could change their magic if the right kind was supplied to one. the southern trees got the first light magic, and were thus able to spread enough light to make a possible window between the realm of light and gavel. The other trees in the north were never able to develop a strong presence of magic to form a window. Both species came from one tree that was able to grow in the perfect spot at just the right time to where it was able to grow huge. and spread its seeds to the north and south. the river split the species apart and kept them isolated for a while. the huge tree was only able to grow 2 seeds before it was killed by the rover's formation and decayed shortly after. 1 seed went south and the other north. the magic of the first tree that allowed it to grow huge only passed on through 1 generation. the seeds of the other 2 were normal. after a strange event that turned both of the huge trees into stumps, they were barley able to survive, but didn't rot. none of the microbes back then had evolved to survive at such heights. so neither of the stumps decomposed. random evolution caused the difference in species between the north an south trees. and caused a difference in how they used magic. After all that, we can finally explain why the forgery is where it is. The runic guardians combined the runes at the only neutral ground they had. a small island smack dab in the middle of the 2 tree kinds. by now, the magic from the plane of influence was strong enough that it affected the runes. the power of the runes was warped and twisted in a way where magic acted like a Schrödinger's cat. the rune was affected by southern and northern magic at the same time, and when combined, created a huge amount of that warped magic and created the crack in reality that is now the modern day forgery. Did you like this theory? It created a lot of fan lore that relates to our real world and before magic, not stuff you see in the wynncraft community often. I have many more theories like this so tell me if you want more!
