Agartha Version 1
The Evaded Wood
The Evaded Wood exists between the Moorland and the Deeproot Mountians. The forest is dense and tangled, and the air is heavy and smells of earth and rotting vegetation. The density of the trees is so great in places that is said to block all wind and muffle most noise. Under the canopy it is extremely dark and a thick mist creeps in between the trees causing places in the forest to be darker than the blackest night. The forest is rarely traveled because it is primarily inhabited by vengeful Ents, crafty Gnolls, and massive spiders know as Shelobs. Beyond that it is said the anyone who dies in the forest is doomed to roam it and is considered by many to be haunted and unholy ground. Many speak of a benevolent forest spirit that protects the forest and on occasion aids well intentioned travelers through the dangers of the forest. It is rumored that this spirit is the hero Ralicus Sodin who has forgone all worldly possessions in an effort to tie himself even closer to nature.
