Elwillow is the large central forest of Maladase, stretching all the way from Journeau to the Deadmarn and the edge of Fleur lake. The Elwillow was previously much bigger, with the Deadmarn having been part of the forest in the past. The Elwillow is a popular shortcut through Maladase though it can be difficult and occasionally dangerous for non-adventurers without escort to go through Despite efforts from the High Lords of Baronshall there are few proper roads through the Elwillow, as the forest is lightly enchanted, and grows faster than roads can be maintained. The biggest reason for this enchantment is the Circle of the Sleepless a Druidic Circle that has been within the Elwillow for longer than most written history of Maladase accounts for. Their groves, spread throughout the forest, accelerate the growth of nearby plantlife, though most of them are abandoned as the Circle of the Sleepless spends most of their time attempting to prevent the spread of the Deadmarn. The other large organization to call Elwillow home are the Journeau Conclave (or just the Conclave) the huntsmasters of the Conclave attempt to maintain the balance of keeping the forest relatively safe for travel while not offending the Circle of the Sleepless. Tensions are sometimes high between the two forces as the Conclave works closely with the Inquisitors during joint operations for keeping the Deadmarn at bay. Adventures from Elwillow are rare, with most people, even those who consider the Elwillow home, being from nearby settlements if they are not from the Circle of the Sleepless.
