The cursed wood is a dense forest to the southwest of Greater New Sylarium Falls. There is a small settlement of goblins to the north of the wood, led by a powerful shaman named Glark. Glark is rarely seen, spending most of his time in the woods proper. The goblins often lead raids into the southern, slum areas of the city.
Not much is known about the woods themselves, but there exists hundreds of rumors. The most well known rumor is that there is a strange alien power that resides at the heart of the woods, and that whoever can gain control over that power will be unstoppable. Only the truly brave enter the woods, and few return.
The denizens of the woods are rarely seen outside, but when they are, they are known to be alien and bizarre.
