The road that passes this forest is fair game to the Farsden bandits who use the thick cover for concealment. Occasionally a force of soldiers are dispatched from Volkraad who sweep the forest for the miscreants, but they rarely capture more than handful.
The centre of the forest has a dark reputation. Strange ruins occupy the centre of forest, and the architecture is disquieting. Many who spend time near there complain of an eerie feeling of being watched - those who return from the ruins, that is.
