Lurkwood is a great forest located south of the Spine of the World.[1]


The forest is located north of Grunwald[2], where the Thunderbeast tribe dwells within the wood.[3] To the east of the wood lies Mithral Hall, the mining community of Mirabar is west, and the town of Nesmé is to the south-east.[4] The edges of Lurkwood are logged by humans, but its shadowy depths are largely mysterious; plagued with legends of bottomless bogs and deadly quicksand.[5]


A bad reputation falls over the forest due to its inhabitants. The southern area of Lurkwood is safe and attracts loggers, hunters, woodsmen from the neighboring communities of Mirabar, Nesmé, and Longsaddle.[6] The rest of the wood is overrun with evil creatures, such as orcs.[7] Other monsters prey on those who enter the forest, like ettins and giants. Several Uthgardt barbarian tribes live within the forest as well, such as the Elk, Griffon and Sky Ponies. In the eastern parts of Lurkwood toward Fell Pass, the Gray Wolf tribe lives and hunts, with more than fifty lycanthropes stalking their lands.[1]
