Tangled as the Woven Web
The darkest country one can find that isn't underground.
This merchantile monarchy just north of the Gates of Merala is almost completely covered in a thick, dark forest known as the Darkenwood.Within the Darkenwood, giant spiders spin a silk that covers entire copses of trees. The people of Krakhammen live in harmony with these spiders as best they can. They harvest the silk, transporting it to Loom, their capital, where it is processed for trade. They own the majority of the silk trade but compete heavily with worm silk from Labyrus. Krakhammen is a member of The Compact Against Sorcery. Their crest shows a black oak on a grey field.
