The Dire Wood
The Dire Wood is a part of the High Forest. It is defined by a ring of completely albino oak trees surrounds the hills in the eastern High Forest. Inside the outer ring of pale oaks stands a thicker ring of blackened and petrified trees. Within the rings, normal trees and heavy undergrowth are mixed with petrified trees, all sprouting from reddish soil.
A single red stone butte at the base of a high cliff is all that remains of the fallen body of Karsus, made gigantic by the divine energy he stole.
Contained within the Dire Wood is the ruins of Karse, a Netheril settlement.
