Darkwood Forest is a huge expanse of wild trees, tangled bushes and meandering paths. It’s located due East of Port Blacksand, on the civilised borders of Allansia proper. Despite its proximity to both Salamonis and Stonebridge, the forest is a dark and forbidding place, the home to many weird creatures and lost secrets.
The famous wizard Yaztromo has his tower at the southern end, not far from the village of Kingsholm. And the Nameless Witch of the Eastern Woods has her hut on corresponding border, south of the many tribes of Elves who dwell along that fringe of the forest.
But the heart of the woods is a shadowy broil of bramble and pine thickets, avoided by most sentient creatures. And underneath the forest, it is rumoured, lie the lightless caverns of the Drow, where they lead their sybaritic lives of ease and corruption.
