The ceremonial tree of Rin was a giant tree standing above the bukshah field slightly north of the village of Rin, under which the villagers married, named their children and farewelled their dead.[1]


Ever since the people of Rin arrived in the valley three hundred years ago, having been liberated from enslavement and driven back their previous Zebak masters across the sea, they had married, named their children and farewelled their dead under the great tree. The tree had been large even then, however it had grown to giant proportions since.[1]

Rowan and the Zebak[]

In the summer following Rowan of the Bukshah's Choosing of Doss of Pandellis as the next Keeper of the Crystal, the wedding of Jiller of the Field and Jonn of the Orchard was held under the great tree above the bukshah field. There the two of them said their vows to one another, and was proclaimed as wife and husband by the officiant Lann. The ceremony was attended by every villager of Rin, safe for Sheba the Wise Woman, every Traveller and Perlain of Pandellis.[1]


The ceremonial tree is giant and has a great canopy of green leaves.[1]
