Wywold Sanctum, Renvar Point, Akron

2019-12-06

An illustration of a lonely respite by the sea. This particular place is located near the Wywold fishing village facing north towards the open sea of Akron Bay. A place of solitude and meditation Wywold Sanctum has been in near constant use for over three centuries. The sanctum is hard to reach. One would have to travel many kilometres from the nearest village Wywold in harsh rocky marshland in which horses are of no use and pack animals falter. Renvar Point is an inhospitable island at the northernmost tip of land when one has taken a direct north-east course from Wywold through thick woods and marshland.

But still the place has been travelled to by adventurers, common people and royalty alike for legends say that the sanctum is sacred and magical. It is said that whoever comes here for prolonged times of quiet and peaceful meditation and truly repents their doubtful deeds will find spiritual benefits. Old wives’ tales or not, the place will still grant beautiful and serene ocean view for the weary traveller.

The sanctum is not maintained by anyone nor are there any servants to attend to your needs. There are common sleeping rooms capable of housing about a dozen people at any given time and two large meditation chambers; one at the ground level and a smaller one at the second floor with vast thick windows offering a panoramic view of the surroundings. The place is usually rather damp because of the ocean but for some strange reason the entire Renvar Point island is hardly ever windy even if the ocean’s fury is at it’s mightiest just around the next cliffs. This phenomena can not quite be understood even by the hardy fishers of nearby Wywold who have generations of quiet knowledge of the adverse weather conditions of the sea.
