Located north of Arkhosia and east of The Howling Hills, Bleakwood is a massive expanse of untamed forests and swamps. Folklore suggests that the Plague Wind originates within the Bleakwood, and most regard it as a cursed land. Wildlife is unusually skittish and aggressive within the Bleakwood, and despite being rich in natural resources, very few civilized people call Bleakwood home. The exception to this are the elven tribes of Bleakwood, fierce warriors known for their skill with the bow and their unflagging devotion to primal entities. Unfortunately, the Bleakwood elves are overwhelmingly protective of their home, and usually hostile to trespassers.
