orthwest of the Downs of Edigroth, under the feet of the Hammodrans dwells the forest of Tindor. The Forest is named after the woodelves that abide within its shade. The woodelves dwell high up within the trees of the forest. Though few non-woodelves have ever set eyes upon the the city of Evlor’edwen its beauty and mystery have inspired the songs of many a bard. At its northern borders, the forest is composed largely of conifers and evergreens, yet to the south the forest contains mainly groves of deciduous trees. Tindor possesses one of the largest preserved habitats of the Sidoren Ash, a tree sought after far and wide for its beauty and lightweight durability. However, the Tindori wood elves protect these trees and allow only minimal harvesting of the Ash. Another important tree for the wood elves is the Tindori Laurel, which possesses both medicinal and culinary qualities. The tree has found many uses within Tindori culture, from medicine to food, and even clothing. In fact some of the products made from this tree constitute the wood elves’ largest economic trade good.Beyond the wood elves, the forest is home to a number of other magical creatures, including Unicorns and many among the Fey. Trolls and ogres and other menacing creatures prowl the darker regions of the forest. The biggest threat to the woods however has come from the ravages of the orc tribes that dwell amid the Atrowan Heights at the western border of Tindor. The orcs come often into the forest to hunt and fell trees to use in their weapon-making. Because of their great numbers the orcs wreak substantial ecological havoc upon the forest and its inhabitants. While the Tindori fiercely defend their home against the depredations of the orcs, their numbers are few compared with those of their enemies. Beyond the orcs, not many venture into the Forest of Tindor, for those who do so uninvited are often never seen or heard from again. The wood elves have a reputation for doing away with unwelcome visitors. It is rumored that the Tindori are guardians of more than the Laurel and the Sidoren Ash; some say that that they guard and ancient secret. The nature of this secret remains hidden, and there is a great deal of speculation as to what it might be. But whatever it is that they hide, the Tindori are unwilling to uncover it to anyone.
