The Forest is a limitless expanse of dense, untamed wilderness to the north of the ocean. It is considered impossible to map or navigate, as the rules of time and space break down within it. One can walk for minutes, then climb the tallest tree and be unable to see the ocean, or one can spend a week in the trees to find only an hour has passed outside, or vice versa.
While the Forest is strange, it is survivable. It always seems possible to fend off attacking wildlife, and food is plentiful.
