The Aerilpar Forest, also known as the Wood of Dark Trees, both for its animated jungle and the dangerous beasts that prowled it, was located in Veldorn in 1367 DR.[1]


The Wood of Dark Trees was found between the Giant's Belt Mountains to the north and the Liontongue River to the south.[1]


Among its more notable features was the Mound of the Sleepless.[2]

True to its name, the trees of this steamy forest were evil. It was widely rumored that the trees were some kind of animated monster created by a foul wizard.[1]


A host of monsters lived within the forest including flying snakes and a pair of mated chimerae[1]
