Our druidic allies feel uneasy about crossing the Crystal Lake. I have heard them whisper about the Grootslang, but they refuse to speak further about the issue.
We have sent scouts to find the High Elven Mages, who study the magic of the crystals; we hope by the Light to find them in time!
Our enemies are closing in, it's time to double our march and reach the Unseelie Court before our strength wanes.

The Crystal Lake is the ninth level in Kingdom Rush: Origins. The High Elven Mage is unlocked in this level.

Trivia

  • A Grootslang is a legendary cryptid said to be huge snake-like creature, that inhabits a large lake or body of water and covets precious jewels and diamonds. It is likely that the serpent that lives in this levels lake is the Grootslang, but this is only implied and not confirmed.
