The Deadwood is a forest that covers the northwest of Witherwood, consisting mainly of Stalwart trees. Just as with the rest of Witherwood, many rumors of ghostly apparitions, disappearances and deadly creatures run rampant.
Arguably, the safest part of this region is Pilfenboro. The residents, while outcasts themselves, refuse to harbor criminals, and have been known to be relentless against attackers.
Other than this, most of the Deadwood is unpopulated, other than undocumented camps and such. There are an uncomfortable number of Wights, Vampires and even Werewolves, here.
The region is also covered in a blanket of perpetual fog, although not nearly as heavy as the Swamps. And, so, the region has a look of twilight.
