The Stone-Cold Forest

The Stone-Cold Forest is a woodland of petrified trees radiating an unnatural and unseasonal cold. Before the Moonfall, the dwarves build their galleys of stone from the trees. The docks were located in the nearby city of BrĂș'na'Brae. Today, the forest and the city lie abandoned by the dwarves and creatures of night and cold have come to roost there.

Those who enter the forest without winter travel clothes take 1d4 points of damage each turn. In winter, even someone travelling in winter clothing takes 1 point of damage per turn. Wearing heavy furs protects from even the worst winter weather, but all actions are at -2 penalty.

The Stone-Cold Forest rises above the tides of the Estuary of the Unquiet Dead. Not even storm tides will flood the hilly woodland.

  2. That was a bit unintentionally. But now that you've pointed it out, I like it. :)
