The Barrowood lies nearly 300 miles to the north of Westcrown beyond Lake Sorrow in Cheliax but still plays a significant part in the metropolis's economy. The forest is a source of rare and valuable lumber, including barroak (used for ships) and shade maple (used for arcane implements). The Barrowood is the subject of a wide variety of myths and rumours is nearby Westcrown including one that claims the wood's depths in home to a small elvish settlement.[1]
