The River Chionthar and the Reaching Woods

The Chionthar and Reaching Woods are on the edges of civilisation. Wander far from these trails and you'll find yourself at the mercy of high-level beasts and monsters, eager to skin all but the most hardy alive.

The area is mostly safe, as you head to the north the area gets less safe. The Fields of the Dead, as you'd expect, contain an aggressive ghost but the most dangerous part of this area are the Wyrms. There are Huge or Large Wyrms in the Disappearing Grove (Dg), inSlipper Gulch (Sg) and as you enter Javyen from the north. I mapped the area with Stibbons, and was invisible, but didn't stick around to see if they would breathe on me or if they could see invisible. Let caution be your watchword.
