Mistcloak Forest

“Beware the whispers of Lyx.” While many believe
the stories of Lyx to be mere cautionary tales told
to troublesome young children, this warning holds
far more truth than falsehood. It is given with good
reason. What foolhardy, young bravo would not
immediately make his way to the cursed forest of
the aerho, a forest rumored to be haunted by an
ancient witch-queen who geases unwise travelers
despite the fact that she is long since dead? What
better place to seek fame and fortune? I can think
of quite a few myself, but such is the impetuosity of
youth.
This dark forestland closely borders the Harrag,
only its an-luthsurl (westernmost) verges having felt
the bite of foresters’ axes. While Lyx’s slyly advising,
cruelly mocking voice, that insinuates itself into
men’s minds as they sleep, is the best known
inhabitant of the ominous wood, it is also home to
some elven folk. Common sense tells us that fell
monsters aplenty must dwell in such a dark, cursed
forest as well.
However, as the Mistcloak Forest once housed
the realm of our favorite witch-queen and her brutal
darkhelm knights, there must be hoards of treasure
and artifacts to be found if one can avoid being
geased by the witch-queen, getting lost in uncharted
territory, being eaten by monsters, and whatever
other unknown dangers lurk, awaiting the unwary.
