Oakenbrow is said to be the First Glade, whose ancestors sprang from the very first soulpods planted by Alarielle. Its noble spirits are renowned for their regal bearing and the wholesome quality of their heartwood, which imparts an innate sense of justice to all they do. The clans of Oakenbrow are many and sizeable, and they have more dealings with the other peoples of the realms than most sylvaneth. While some amongst their race – the spirits of Dreadwood and Gnarlroot in particular – resent Oakenbrow Glade for what they see as arrogance, most recognise their inherent nobility.[1a]

Overview

The loremasters of Oakenbrow are incredibly well-versed in the arts of war. Within their ancient minds, they hold thousands of years of cumulative martial experience, allowing them to effortlessly outmanoeuvre any foe upon the field of battle.[1b]

The sylvaneth of the Oakenbrow clans are noble of aspect and regal of bearing, even the lowliest Dryads carrying themselves with poise and solemnity. This glade is one of the largest, with hundreds of clans spread across the Mortal Realms, and they have perhaps the most numerous standing musters of Noble Spirits. This makes the High King of Oakenbrow a powerful regent indeed, and it speaks well of this vast and elder being that he is gracious and fair in his rule.[1b]

The disciplined warriors of the Oakenbrow clans favour Sigmar’s Stormcasts greatly. In these storm-forged warriors, the sylvaneth see kindred spirits, brave and determined crusaders who will die before they see Chaos victorious.[1b]

During Alarielle's Hiding

  • Sons of Behemat - Following the death of the zodiacal gargant Behemat, his last sons wandered lost across Ghyran. Wise and compassionate, the clans of Oakenbrow welcomed these powerful – if crude – allies to their lands. (Order 20)

Famous Battles

  • Old Alliances - Despite their malcontent, the clans of Dreadwood fought alongside those of Ironbark and Oakenbrow to turn back the Poxfang Tide. With the defeat of this scourge, a stretch of the Cascading Path was purified once more, opening new tributaries throughout the Jade Kingdoms. (Order 21)
  • Atop the Greatstump - When the Plague Lord Glurbchort, led his diseased horde up the winding stair set unto the Greatstump's flank, he did so with a song in his rotten heart. The Plague Lord's confidence was misplaced,for he had sorely underestimated the threat, that lay in wait for his warriors. Treelord Ancient Haaldhorm, of the Clan Naeth'aer, had no intention of allowing the rotbringers to despoil this place. The Plague Lord's mirth was short lived. On all sides, the forest came alive with cold faerie lights, while clouds of glimmering spites galloped through the air on shrikeling steeds to stab at the skaven with tiny spears. Striding from the trees came three towering figures, the Clan Lords of Naeth'aer who had loosed the war song upon their enemies. As Ancient Haaldhorm battled Plague Lord Glurbchort, Treelord Haethellae stamped a path through the rancid warriors, while Ancient Loremaster Il'yuthorn blasted rotbringers apart, into bloody clouds with bolts of sorcery. The rotling Lord was the last to fall, sliced and hewn by Tree-Revenants before finally being crushed beneath Haaldhorm's mighty roots. His ambush on the Rotlings had succeeded and the Peakwood had reawakened. (Order 78-81)
