Kingdom of Isles
The roaring woods
This heavily wooded valley within The Great Green, is so named by locals because of the many falls that pour in to the valley from all sides.
The trees grow tall and some times twisted seeming to exist since a primordial era. The temperature is always noticeably cooler than the surrounding forest.
Daily rains or snows as well as the high humidity often cause obscuring natural mist to form in this valley. This combined with the density of the gnarled forest causes sight to be greatly reduced.
While passing through the valley and crossing one of the many shallows in the river, The Alliance was set upon by what they at first thought to be a Dire Bear. The beast charged the party and was eventually defeated, only to reveal that the beast was possessed by a shadow daemon that then attacked and was eventually banished back to the plane of shadow.
