Gods and Empires
The Briarwood is a deep and mysterious old-growth forest that is said to be a stronghold of the Fae. Bordered on the west and south by the Grimwall Mountains, and human-occupied lands of The Imperium to the north and east, the Briarwood is an island of wilderness that has remained relatively untouched and unchanged since the days when the Gods still dwelled in Faeregoth.
There are few who claim that they have explored its mysteries and returned to tell the tale for the inhabitants of the Briarwood do not welcome outsiders. Legends tell that the forest itself repels those who seek to pass its borders. Trees and landmarks shift, like an ever-changing maze with no exit, leaving would-be explorers to wander in circles for hours before finally discovering themselves back where they started.
