The Thistlewood is the largest forest in the Kingdom of Iskandar.

The Thistlewood is, by far, the largest woodland region on Westvale Island.

It is a dark and mysterious place, where few men dwell, except for patrolling rangers and druids.

The forest is named for the many thorn bushes and other sharp, prickly undergrowth found here. Because of this growth, traveling through these woods can be quite difficult and treacherous.

Deep inside the wood are rumored to be several ancient elvish ruins dating from the realm of Ectharë, but most are now covered with the overgrowth of nearly 3,000 years.

Also, a large population of Wood-Elves reside here, although they mostly keep to themselves and shun outsiders.

Deep within this forest is Tall Tree Keep.
