Tree of Youth (Silver with Sparkle): A magical tree bearing inexpressibly beautiful silver apples with a divine, breathtaking, mesmerizing, and almost irresistible scent. Even sunlight fades in the bright light they cast.
Wood Between the Worlds (Green): A mysterious forest realm of supposed water portals that allow magical travel between the worlds of Charn, Earth, Narnia, and numerous others. In order to travel through one must be touching one of the yellow or green magical rings.
My Dear Lucy (Purple): The granddaughter of C.S. Lewis who is the inspiration behind ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’. You’re never too old to enjoy a good fairy tale.
One True King (Gold with Sparkle): The creator and King of Narnia, Aslan, is a representation of all that is good. He appears to be a large and terrifying, but equally magnificent and wise, lion with kind eyes. He watches over Narnia and protects it from various evils.
