The Forgotten World
The Forgotten World is inhabited by both infected and uninfected plants and animals. Overland travel is extremely risky, and th existance of settlements outside the Realm is a matter of speculation.
The uninfected plants of the Forgotten World are varied. Because no extensive logging or clearing is possible, the forest growth is thick and old. There are a variety of useful herbs and other plants in the forest, although collecting them outside of an Abandoned Settlement is risky.
The unifected animals of the Forgotten World are very similar to those before the plague. The forest contains deer, bears, rabbits, and foxes. Beasts and monsters generally do not hunt wild animals.
While there are not nearly as many infected plants and animals in the forest as there is natural life, infected beasts and plants are hard to avoid in the forest. Explorers and hunters wishing to travel through the forest are best advised do so during the daytime, when the monsters are less active. Travelling through the forest at night is a fool's errand.
