Secrets & Riddles
The Neplyuev Stones is a small circle of stones located in the the Shudderwood border marshes at the eastern edge of Vieland County. The massive stones bear a number of strange, seemingly unintelligible, markings, leaving some to speculate about the monument, it’s builders, and their purpose.
The Stones sit in a clearing, approximately 30 feet across. They are overgrown with moss and lichen. Sunlight rarely reaches the ground here, leaving the earth soft and muddy, particularly after a rainstorm. The Stones themselves, eight in number, are arranged in a circle, 20 feet in diameter (measured from the outside edges). The megaliths are roughly spire shaped, approximately 15 feet tall and 5 feet wide at the base.
