The Ardenwood is comprised of the heavily forested lands to the east of the Zehuar Valley, extending almost to the coastline. These woods, while still quite dangerous, are home to numerous small human villages and towns. Due to the presence of humans and their need for lumber, many large swathes of the Ardenwood are more sparsely forested, often with rough paths and trails used for hunters and woodsmen, or for trade between villages. A few of these rudimentary roads run west into the Zehuar Valley, eventually leading to Vaerhaven, or east towards several small port towns along the coast.
Despite these relatively tame pockets, there nevertheless remain areas of deep wilderness. Xenophobic elven tribes stake their territories amid these mostly-uncharted woodland depths, to say nothing of other even less civilized creatures and monsters.
