Dark Woods of Baamor
The humans tell frightening tales about this area, whose trees are strangely darker and more twisted than the common trees of the region, and whose fauna is made up of deformed and evil parodies of the common woodland animals. Elven sages blame this to a mysterious being (or race, this is not clearly defined) called Baamor, who tried to poison the entire continent in the ancient days to appease the Dark Gods. However, the Korrigans rebelled against Baamor and ultimately defeated him, imprisoning the evil Baamor inside one of the blight trees of this forest. Therefore, in order to avoid freeing him, it is strictly prohibited to cut down any tree in this region. In fact, few people venture there, for it is said that Baamor tries to possess anyone who walks into his forest and use him to achieve freedom.
The elves tell a slightly different tale concerning the betrayal of the tenth Korrigan, Black Wing. Having betrayed her fellowship, she sought to pervert the area in a bid for lichdom. She failed and was driven away but the lingering magic of her deed warped the woodlands into the fearsome place it is today.
