The Preserve is a warded territory near Teal's Gap in Tysan, in the shadow of the Tornir Peaks. The Khadrim are confined here under Fellowship wards, and the geography consists of hot springs, mud pots, and lava wells. These wards require five weeks for a corporate Sorcerer to repair, and longer for a discorporate one.

Role in the Story

Spoiler warning: Contains plot elements from multiple books in the series.

Fugitive Prince

Third Age 5653: When Lysaer travels in haste back to Avenor, he is supported by Koriani enchantresses who wind spells of concealment that allow safe passage through the Preserve. These spells affect the stability of the boundary wards, and Asandir's stopgap efforts to preserve them foreshadow a failure in the coming decade.

Grand Conspiracy

Third Age 5669: Morriel's attack on Athera dissolves the wards around the Preserve just after Asandir has rededicated them.

Traitor's Knot

Third Age 5670: Luhaine repairs the wards and cannot assist with the incoming wraiths from Marak.
