The Forest of Memories
Once the proud home to several elven villages, it has only a few (human) generations ago fallen to Tieflings in the tiefling invasion who have chased out all of the elves and remain isloated from the rest of civilisation. The Tieflings allow timber and firewood to be taken close to Sparrowfax but many brave or foolhardy souls that wander too deeply into the Forest awake to find themselves stripped and beaten outside the Sparrowfax city walls at night. As a result Tieflings are persona non grata throughout the realm.
After defeating Paldemar in the Thunderspire Labyrinth, the adventurer’s found his map of the Forest bearing the note “Find the City of Argent!” Argent is known amongst the Elves as a mythical place in the Forest, symbolic of a place where only the mighty heroes and great figures may dwell.
