Greatwood Forest is the largest forest in the Western
Shores and is also the ancestral home of the Elves.
The Elves regularly patrol the borders of the furest,
cutting themselves off with all friendly contact with
non-Elves (except for some druids who they deemed
non-threatening to the forest and allowed to stay).
The Forest is home to all types of trees, though most
found within are deciduous. All the trees inside are
half again as tall as the same species located in
other forests. Many scholars speculate that this is
some magical effect, for neither the climate nor the
forest soil seem remarkable.
Greatwood is a hilly forest, being at the base of the
Grand Range. It is extremely easy for a traveller who
doesn't know their way around to get lost, as all of
the wooded ridges begin to look alike after a while.
Fortunately, the Elves and druids are usually more
than willing to help out any lost travellers they come
across (in the case of the Elves, this means taking
them out of the forest, but they may choose where).
Nymphs, dryads, centaurs and other creatures also roam
