"So, how was it?"
"It was magical."
Situated to the north of the megalopolis of Nesta
, in Eskana
, stands a small forest called Ode that most people want to visit at least once in their lifetime. It is the only still wild forest in existence and as such is the most biodiverse forest in the entire world.
The forest is nestled snuggly between the city in the south, the The Grim Mountains
in the west and the Crystal ocean
to the north and east. Even though the forest is surrounded, there have been many reports of people stepping into the forest and never stepping out again. They have never been found again. Because of this, you should not step into this forest without an experienced guide.
The trees at the edge of the city, even though they are shorter than the trees further in, still looms over the several stories high skyscrapers. Animals from the forest sometimes also sneak into the city to steal food or be general nuisances. Hurting or killing an animal from the forest can get you in jail, so people generally let the animals be.
Stepping into the forest you will be bombarded with sounds and smells quite different from the city. Many species of birds singing, and flowers in different colors enticing you with their sweet smells.

. There are many species of plants and animals that only exist naturally in this forest and as such, they are protected by many nature groups as well as the government of Eskana. However, species have still been found in the hands of people
around the world.
As it is illegal to remove any of the forests resources the only legal economical gain from the forest is the money earned by the guides showing the edges of the forest to visitors.
