At the heart of Whispering Gardens is the Ancient Oak, the oldest living tree in the land. This majestic old lady is as tall as the tallest mountain, and so enormous that a hundred families linked arm in arm cannot reach around her girth. The Tree is Whispering Gardens' "town square," a public meeting place where the Gardens' families hold festivals and celebrations. The Oak's canopy of branches contain an exotic cornucopia of life, including butterflies, birds, snakes, and insects which never touch the ground.
Among her vast network of roots, lies an increcible world of twisting tunnels, cavern and rivers, encompassing a vast underground landscape.
