The Gronzi Forest is known as "The Forest" to locals of Brevoy. It covers House Medvyed's lands and sweeps from the Icerime Peaks to the shores of Lake Reykal.[1] Illegal hunting and woodcutting goes on around the forest's outskirts -- particularly in its west-- even though its resources are ostensibly protected by the Brevic Crown.[2] The forest is currently menaced by a bandit chieftain known as Duma the Sly, who raids merchants, travelers, and tax-collectors. The chieftain gives part of his proceeds to the poor, so the people love him, even as King Noleski Surtova and the army oppose his efforts.[2]
