Sylvan and mysterious, the seemingly endless Vastwood forest covers the majority of the lands north of the city of Terra, on the continent of Terra Main. This forest embodies the dark woodlands found in the collective myths and legends borne from the primordial fears found in the subconsciousness of the Races of the world... deadly, wondrous, mystical, and even otherworldly. Even the Wood Elves who inhabit it know not to stray too far into it's heart, lest they never return.
Fauna & Flora
Sections of the Vastwood are idyllic, with a sun-dappled grassy forest floor, with nary even a stinging insect in sight. Other areas of the wood are dim, shadowy, and teeming with worgs, giant spiders, malicious Fey creatures... or worse. There are hardwooded areas, conifer areas, misty ferned areas, areas with massive redwoods, and even groves of naturally occurring fruit trees. If one spends enough time in the Vastwood, and is lucky enough, almost any sort of 'forest' biome can be found. As mentioned, the wood is home to any and all sorts of forest creatures, from the mundane to the deific... herds of deer, bears, wolves, squirrels, birds of prey, rodents, etc can all be found here, as well as fairies, owlbears, at least one ancient Green Dragon, centaurs, blink dogs, displacer beasts, gnolls, orcs, Wood elves, goblins, satyrs, trolls, treants, were-creatures, unicorns, and even a village of legendary firbolgs are claimed to have been encountered here.
Lumber, obviously, is available in limitless quantity, if you're willing to face the wrath of the Vastwood's denizens, such as Nymphs. Fruits, berries, roots, fungi, and other exotic natural materials can be found here in great abundance, with many living only here. Game animals, as well, live in great numbers amongst the trees.
