The Celadon Forest is a temperate deciduous forest located within both the Duchy of Urnst and the Kingdom of Nyrond. The forest is split by the Nesser River, which also divides the Duchy of Urnst from Nyrond.
The Celadon is mostly unclaimed by either state, though the northern portion west of the Nesser is directly overseen by the Duchy of Urnst's Royal Pathwardens, a group of rangers loyal to the Duchy. The southern area west of the Nesser is under the protection of a group of humanoid druids known as the Council of the Thorn.
The trees of the Celadon are chiefly oaks and elms. The rare herbs needed to make Keoghtom's ointment are rumored to exist only here.
West of the Nesser, a number of humanoid tribes have been reported, including gnolls, kobolds, orcs, and goblinoids. These humanoids generally seem to respect the woodland, perhaps due to the influence of the Council of the Thorn.
Features & settlements
A ranger school called Stalwart Pines is located within the Celadon.
Far to the south, not far west of a bend in the Nesser, lies Thorn's Circle, a druidic stone ring frequented by the Council of the Thorn.
