Get Rich Or Res Trying
The Veneficus Forrest is a wild place almost completely overrun by the Fey. It is a beautiful, and occasionally dangerous place, where traveler’s must be on their guard. The forrest is the only source of Darkwood on the entire continent, and it is carefully harvested by the woodsmen of the nearby village of Benterling.
Guarding the forrest is a hidden enclave of Druids. They allow the woodsmen to harvest fallen darkwood on the condition that they leave the rest of the forrest unmolested. The woods are also said to be watched over by a powerful guardian who punishes those who violate the peace, although this is believed by some to be wild speculation and intentional fear mongering perpetrated by the gnomes of Benterling.
