Fable of the violet haired Princess
The Ashencliff Forest is very ancient, one of the oldest woodlands area surviving today in the Blossom Kingdom.
It has lingering magical properties from the past eras, when the elves roamed the lands. Sometimes illusions appear and make the travellers lose their way in the wilds. Elven keen senses can see through the mirages.
The Eastern King’s road is the safest path through the woods. You can’t get lost if you follow it. There are not many other safe trails though.
Natural dangers of the forest include: Huge Spiders.
