The Dancing Dell was a dell containing the Ladystone, a sacred stone touched by Eilistraee. The stone was very old, possibly dating back as far as the early settlements of Ardeep.[1][3]


The dell was a smooth bowl-shaped valley filled with moss, ferns, and grasses,[1] surrounded by a ring of raised earth.[1][2][4]


The Ladystone's power guarded the dell and could strike out at intruders at the will of the goddess[1] or her priestesses.[2]


Qilue Veladorn lead worship at the Ladystone.[1]


It was said that Eilistraee had manifested in the dell more than once.[1]
