The Freemen’s Forest rises up into the foothills of the Drogsden Peaks. A number of hardy settlers have tiny freeholds along the edge where forest meets mountain, and bands of prospectors set up mining camps there as well. It is also a place where orc and goblin warbands roam – but the rich timber, fertile fields, and iron will of the pioneers keep a handful of tiny settlements still standing.
Deeper within the forest, small villages of elves build their homes high in the treetops, though they are very secretive and do not welcome strangers. Other, more fae dangers await the unwary, but the forest is also rumored to be a place of great beauty for those who know where to look.
