Tadlumish Myot - Briarwall Forest
Within the regions firmly recognized as part of the forest, the land is either flat or scattered with gently rolling hills. The transition into the Bloodstone Hills and XXX mountains, still recognized as part of the forest, are notably much more hilly than the rest. Intermixed throughout the drier upland forests are wet lowlands, with seamless transitions occurring between forest and either marsh or swamp. The region recieves extensive rainfall, producing a vast network of rivers which either empty into the Kervakhen to the east or the ocean to the west.

The Briarwall Forest is wealth of different natural resources, not all of which stem from the forest itself. The majority of the plants growing here are useful as food, lumber, medicine, tool, or for their various magical effects. The region is also native to a variety of useful animals used either for food or as beasts of burden. The lake is full of fish and other marine animals, and the hills to the north and south serve as a source of stone and raw ore.
The Briarwall forest has been constantly and intentionally shaped over millennia. It is believed that the Wudfesnu (tree giants) cultivated the forests before even the elves arrived, though they seemed to have a more hands off approach. From the day the elves arrived in the world they began shaping the forest around them into a beautiful garden guarded by the thorns. A full history of the events of the forest is contained within the full history of the elves.

SurvivalThe elves keep the waters of their territories clean and drinkable, and have carefully cultivated plants which are typically edible by all races. However, there a number of plants growing the barrier regions which are poisonous or have magical protections. The area is almost constantly raining increasing the risk of hypothermia, especially in the winter.
Typical Monsters and RacesWudfesnu (tree giants), other giant-kln, goblins, lycanthropes
