Petrified Forest
Forest-2.jpg

(Forbidden Forest) this large woodland lies on the northern tip of the Island of Cynara, and gets its name from the hundreds of petrified souls whose statues lie within the forest. Long ago, the woodland and the castle of Erôn-Khorlöth that lies in its edge were ruled by a Cyrendari noble named Ilros Marghon, who, along with all his folk, was ultimately turned to stone, by great Basilisks that roamed the wood. The forest is now controlled by the Veiled Society, and is still prowled by several deadly Basilisks, who add to their statue collection every time there is an unwanted visitor. There is a single road that passes through the forest on its way to the village of Swanford.
