The World of Arith
A large forest expanse west of the Whitecrown Mountains. The Darkoak has a bad reputation among the dwarves, who are closest to this oppressive woodland. The western areas of the Darkoak contain small settlements of xenophobic trappers and woodsman who maintain a bare-bones civilization within the forest as they compete against the evil fey creatures in the western portion of the forest. Between the two are large portions of the Darkoak supposedly haunted by the remains of an elven (or eladrin) settlement that predates any know records, even of the dwarves. The Darkoak is said to have their own Circle, the Circle of Thorns, which is notably savage in its protection of the forest. Those who stay on the outskirts of the forest return to civilization regularly, those who venture into the forest rarely return.
