Against the Darkness
A fearsome and skeletal forest, Darkwood is home to some of the most frightening denizens of the kingdom. No living person is known to live within its bounds, although there are rumors of evil revenants and unquiet spirits haunting the wood, and of mortals also within, bound in an unholy pact with these beings, trading service and fealty for longevity and power. The Blackhand Curse still lies heavily upon the lands, despite centuries of effort from druids and shamans. The town of Wither lies nearby.
