Shallwood Empire Also known as the Forest of Masks, this vast woodland ranges from wintry conifers in the north to tropical jungles in the south. It is known to house extremely powerful and ancient forest spirits as well as truly massive totem beasts. Many cultures tried to settle the forest in the past, but only those communities that blended into the wood survived – the ruins of other attempts still dot the woods, waiting to be explored. By custom, travelers and natives alike always wear simple masks while outside anywhere in the wood, to hide from the wrathful eyes of the ancient spirits roaming the forest.
