So named for the perpetual state of twilight created by the canopy overhead, Gloomwood lies in the Northwest. It is home to the Gloomwood Elves although no one is really sure exactly where in Gloomwood they reside.
It is a hostile forest to those who are not careful. Both mundane and magical beast prowl among the tress seeking prey foolish enough to come too close. Most of the forest is believed to be explored, however, the light plays tricks on the eyes and available maps tend to disagree. Children’s stories tell of a temple located in the deepest part of the forest where a snake-worshiping sect resided. They would lure children to their temple to use a human sacrifices. No evidence of this temple exists and it has not been found after many expeditions.
The forest is avoided by all but brave adventures looking to find the lost temple in hopes of acquiring riches.
