The Darkwoods is a dense forest located in the lands of Lemish. Grassy plains, winding rivers, mountains, and the New Sea surround the forest. The forest receives ample rainfall that allows for the forest to have thick vegetation that hinders most people's movements in the forest. When one enters the forest, they can notice a drastic change in lighting, with the forest being almost completely dark from the thick foliage of the towering trees. The smell of the forest is that of fresh earth and greenery, and animal life is plentiful. The Caves of Darkness can be found in the forest, and this was also the home of Lord Vertumnus' stronghold in 344 AC.
