Einglach is a fey organization headquartered in the northern tracts of Ohtarion. It is composed of treants, elder treants, centaurs, sprites, dryads and an assortment of other fey. Some of its members are ancient creatures, once soldiers of the God Era's Hedge Legion; under the then archangel Silvanus.

Based out of Feyrise, at the top of their ideals is the belief that the fey are superior to others.

Einglach are the guardians of the Great Fey Circles and many smaller ones desired by those seeking to cross-worlds or tap into its strong pockets of Nature Energy. Possession of these power sources have led to conflicts with Antokepf and Angrod, both greatly desiring the power they offer.

Einglach is not an empire or nation, but a quasi-organization that only carries out governing when necessary. When they do come together, it is to defend their territory or to elect a leader. Einglach is so loosely governed that there have been times in history when settlers have come into Einglach territory and staked a claim. In the first Angrod Incident, it was a decade later when the Einglach rallied their forces and marched against the settlers, forcing them back to whence they came. This incident was bloodless, with the settlers lectured on how Einglach functions and laid out their borders. This first incident with the Angrods has continued with others which are largely based on the laws of the Mithrandír Codices. In short, one of laws of this tome says that an area that lays uncontested for eight months is free to those who settle it ( the Einglach routinely take far longer than six months to contest a claim ).

One important position in this organization is the Grand Lecturer. The election of this individual is a big affair that happens every few centuries. The Grand Lecturer is tasked with keeping history, the tales of far away lands and distant peoples. On becoming the Grand Lecturer, always a treant, becomes an embodiment of nature, acquiring a mighty ability to summon a spirit of the land in defense. Like the Great Fey Circles, the spirit of the land is a powerful deterrent to foreign aggression.

Sages and other knowledge seekers come from distant lands to speak with the Einglach. They seek knowledge lost to other peoples, or to discover secrets that only those with lifespans that span thousands of years would know.

Even though it happened thousands of miles away, the Einglach of Feyrise knew within days of the arrival of the Ink Sphere. They kept it a secret, doing nothing as those around suffered from its baleful emanations.

- Viryantë, Angrod historian - "Wisdom of Einglach"

The Nature Protectorates is often considered Einglach's biggest rival. Certain regions of the world are under the watch of these two nature orders, and by agreement they usually stay out of each other's domains.
